After leaking a couple of times in the past few days, T-Mobile's latest Magenta Deal Days promotion has just been made officially official. Kicking off May 18th and running through May 28th, the Magenta Deal Days promo will give customers that purchase a select T-Mobile smartphone the opportunity to pick up another device for free after mail-in rebate. The sale is open to both new customers as well as existing customers with 22 months or more on their current contract. Interested customers can take part in the deal by signing up for a two-year contract with a qualifying Classic or Unlimited Value plan.
Some of the devices included in this new Magenta Deal Days promo are the HTC One S, Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC Amaze 4G, Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, HTC Radar 4G, Nokia Lumia 710, T-Mobile myTouch, T-Mobile mytouch Q and Samsung Exhibit II 4G. An example of the pricing for this promo would see a customer picking up an HTC One S with a Classic plan for $249.99 and a second One S for the same price, bringing the total cost to $499.98. After sending in a $299.99 mail-in rebate card, the final cost for both devices would be $199.99. Meanwhile, two One S handsets on an Unlimited Value plan would cost $199.99 each in store, coming to a down payment of $399.99 with a $20 monthly EIP payment for each. After sending in a $199.99 mail-in rebate card, the net down payment for both phones would be $199.99.
So there's the rundown on the new Magenta Deal Days promo, T-Mobile folk. As I mentioned earlier this week, it's good to see the HTC One S included in the sale, giving anyone interested in this deal the chance to pick up two of HTC and T-Mobile's latest offering for him or herself and a friend.
