Taxes Schmaxes. T-Mobile is Making It Rain with Savings This Tax Season

T-Mobile gives you back more than what you paid in sales tax on ANY
new smartphone

BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced its own version of the Boston
Tea Party. Starting February 1st, existing and new T-Mobile
customers with unlimited high-speed data can pick up a hot new
smartphone and get back at least what they paid in sales tax when it’s
all said and done.

The Un-carrier’s been leading a revolt against extra taxes and monthly
fees on behalf of consumers. It all started with Un-carrier Next and
T-Mobile ONE with taxes and monthly fees included. On top of that,
T-Mobile is giving carrier customers a 2nd rebate this year
with $150 for each and every line you switch to T-Mobile ONE up to 12
lines, for a limited time. Stack that on top of today’s news, and you’ve
got yourself one heckuva reason to party. And, you won’t have to throw
away a bunch of perfectly good tea to do it.

“You know the old saying about death and taxes? We’re taking on taxes
first,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “With
Un-carrier Next, we went All In and included all those added monthly
fees and extra taxes on T-Mobile ONE—all without changing the price.
Now, we’re giving you back more than you paid in sales tax on ALL
T-Mobile smartphones for you and your entire family. So what are you
waiting for?”

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to a T-Mobile store or
    and get your new smartphone on an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP).
    Don’t forget the rest of the family – or your small business! You can
    get money back on every new smartphone –with every T-Mobile ONE or
    Simple Choice Unlimited 4G LTE line up to 12.
  2. Submit your info online, and you’ll get a prepaid MasterCard® with
    11.2% of your phone’s price* within 60 days. That’s more than the
    sales tax on your phone … and could be over $100 per device! Cha-ching.
  3. Use all that money anywhere you want. We recommend buying something

And here’s the list of smartphones this deal covers:

T-Mobile is radically simplifying a complicated industry for everyone.
With T-Mobile ONE, there are no more data buckets, no more guessing how
much of the Internet you’ll use, no more 2-year service contracts, no
more overages, no more worrying about how much your bill will be, and
even taxes and fees are included in the price! Contrast that with
carriers who confuse, complicate and limit you just to enrich
themselves. It’s gotten so bad that Verizon is now – unbelievably –
actually trying
to convince you that limiting your data is a good
. #smh

T-Mobile’s smartphone tax revolt will definitely last longer than the
Boston Tea Party… but it’s still a limited time offer, so get a move on!
