T-Mobile Un-carrier Unwrapped Initiative Targets Verizon Customers With Lackluster Hulu Offer
T-Mobile is looking to spread some more holiday cheer by kicking dirt in the eyes of its competitors. T-Mobile opened up the festivities by giving Sprint customers an additional $200 account credit for switching. The third-place wireless carrier then set it sights on AT&T customers, offering them a free upgrade to a 128GB iPhone 6s along with a 50 percent discount on mobile accessories.
Now you couldn’t have possibly thought that T-Mobile would forget about all of those folks on Verizon Wireless, America’s largest wireless carrier. T-Mobile CEO John Legere just wouldn’t be able to let Verizon get a pass on anything as we’ve seen by his previous antics. Perhaps in a bid to [seemingly] save the best for last, T-Mobile has now unveiled its holiday promotion for Verizon switchers.
T-Mobile will give Verizon customers one free year of Hulu’s Limited Commercials plan along with the 50 percent discount on mobile accessories that it offered to AT&T switchers. Compared to the promotions that T-Mobile offered AT&T and Sprint customers, the Verizon offer seems rather lacking in comparison. The promotional discounts (not counting the discount on mobile accessories) amounted to $200 for the previous two offers, while the Hulu subscription is valued at a mere $100.
“Verizon customers put up with a lot of sneaky tricks from Big Red these days. Overpriced data, shocking overage penalties and no early upgrade option – just to name a few,” said Legere. “So while Verizon spends billions of dollars on TV ads screaming that ‘better matters,’ we are going to show their customers why the Un-carrier is better with a real gift, half-off the best accessories and a full year of Hulu that comes with unlimited LTE streaming with Binge On at T-Mobile! It’s a gift that will keep giving all year long!”
The offer for Verizon customers starts December 11th and lasts through December 17th.
