Never one to rest on its laurels and wait for those always important subscriber numbers to grow by themselves, T-Mobile is gearing up to launch yet another sweet “free line” promotion. According to a leaked internal document that’s almost certainly legit, the latest such deal will be available starting tomorrow, March 5, with an end date that’s likely to remain under wraps even after the official debut of this special offer.
Before getting too excited, you may want to note new T-Mo customers are excluded this time around, which is somewhat unusual… to say the least. Basically, the “Un-carrier” is swimming against the industry tide here by making an effort to keep its existing subscribers happy instead of exclusively chasing new “recruits.”
On the bright side, the “2021 Get a 3rd Voice Line On Us with Magenta” offer is still available for new customers joining the nation’s second-largest mobile network operator by first paying two “qualifying” lines.
Speaking of qualifying lines, it’s important to highlight that existing subscribers on a bunch of different plans will not be eligible for a free line of service even if they’re already paying for two such lines. Specifically, the Subsidy, Value Essentials, Military, 55+, First Responder, Amplified, Select Choice, and No Credit Check (NCC) plans are excluded, which largely coincides with the terms and conditions of various similar promotions from the not-so-distant past.
One key requirement that’s different now compared to those four killer deals from last year is that, in addition to your two (or more) existing lines, you’ll need to pay for a third one before getting a fourth on the house (via monthly bill credits). And no, you can’t cancel an existing voice line with the “intention of replacing it with a newly activated voice line to take advantage of this offer”, nor can you treat lines cancelled within the past 90 days as “new activations for the purpose of adding a free line for this offer.”
