T-Mobile Father's Day 2011 promo officially announcedAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Good news, T-Mobile customers! After last month's leak that teased T-Mo's 2011 Father's Day sale, all of the details of the promotion have been made official by Magenta in the dead of the night. This year, customers that sign up for a qualifying talk, text, and data plan on June 18th will be given 12 months of data free of charge. However, the fine print of the deal points out that only the 200MB data plan is the only one that'll actually be free. Any customers that choose the 2GB, 5GB, or 10GB plan instead will receive a $10 credit on their bill for 12 months. This year's Father's Day deal is open to new subscribers as well as existing customers that are at least 18 months into a contract and have an account in good standing. You can check out the full press release from T-Mobile below.
Although this year's Father's Day promo could be a decent deal for some, I'm sure that there are more than a few folks disappointed that T-Mobile decided not to repeat last year's "All Phones Free" sale that yielded record-breaking sales for Magenta. Those that do take part in the offer will be $120 richer a year from now, though, and think of all the stuff you could buy with $120! You could get 30 or 40 cups of your favorite cup of coffee or even use it to pay for at least part of a new phone once your contract is up! So, what do you all think of T-Mobile's 2011 Father's Day sale? Anyone planning to sign up for the deal?
