Is your smartphone starting feel a little long in the tooth? Now is a good time to upgrade due to the all of the extended Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. If you're willing to join Team Magenta (T-Mobile), you can effectively snag a brand new OnePlus 6T handset when trading in an eligible phone, in a roundabout sort of way.
What do we mean by that? The freebie offer consists of $580 in bill credits, paid over time—there is a one-time trade-in bill credit, followed by 24 bill credits, according to T-Mobile's related FAQ. This means you have to pony up $580 for the OnePlus 6T (128GB + 8GB RAM) right off the bat, and then collect the refund in monthly chunks on your bill.
The offer is good for both new and existing T-Mobile customers. New customers must activate two lines of qualifying service, one of which needs to be used with the OnePlus 6T. Existing customers can score the same deal by activating at least one additional line of qualifying service with the OnePlus 6T. In both cases, a trade-in is required.
Devices that quality for the freebie offer include:
- Samsung Galaxy S6, S7, S8 series / Galaxy Note 8 and Note 5
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Note 5
- Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL
- LG V30, V30+, G7, V20, and V6
- Motorola Z2 Force and Z2 Play
- OnePlus 5, 5T, and 6
That's a pretty generous selection of eligible devices. Granted, getting back the cost of the phone over a period of 24 months stinks compared to T-Mobile just handing over the handset outright, but it's still free in the long run.
The OnePlus 6T is a desirable Android phone, too. It has a 6.4-inch display with an in-screen fingerprint reader, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It also boasts dual rear cameras (16MP and 20MP) and a capacious 3,700 mAh battery.
