Apparently 2017 is the year that T-Mobile targets taxes, because after simplifying its T-Mobile One plan by bundling taxes into the advertised price, T-Mo is now going to cover the sales tax on your new phone.
T-Mobile’s latest offer is to cover the cost of sales tax on all of its new smartphones. Just buy a new phone on an Equipment Installment Plan, submit your account info and the promo code 17DEVICECREDIT on T-Mobile’s promotions website, and then T-Mo will send you a prepaid MasterCard card worth 11.2 percent of your phone’s price (11.55 percent in Puerto Rico).
This offer starts February 1 and will run for a limited time. It’s open to both new and existing customers, but in order to qualify, you’ll need to be on a T-Mobile One or Simple Choice Unlimited 4G LTE plan.
New smartphones can be expensive, so every little bit that you can get back helps out. T-Mobile’s new promo means that you can get more than one-tenth of the price of your phone back in the form of a prepaid card, letting you buy yourself a nice lunch or maybe something even nicer if you get a more expensive phone.
