T-Mobile, wanting to get out in front of Black Friday shoppers, has announced a counter-offensive today with their Magenta Saturday promotion. Basically it works like this – come this Saturday (November 19) , new and current qualified customers can walk out of T-Mobile store with any smartphone or select mobile broadband device (two tablets!) for a net down payment of $49.99 (U.S.) or less after a mail-in rebate card. Yeah, less as in free!
New customers must sign up for a qualifying two-year agreement on any Unlimited Value plan with 2GB or higher of full-speed data while existing customers can take advantage of the offer if they are eligible for upgrade (18 months tenure or greater) and switch from a Classic to an eligible Value plan.
