Thread Details

You don't even have to trade in your device they just want to get BB users to upgrade so 100$ prepaid debit for anything or 200$ prepaid debit for any Samsung. I just ordered the $216 Galaxy Avant to replace my currently in use Curve 8900. Taxes and shipping were about 20$ and which means I'll be in for about 40$ to get the Avant. You can use the debit to payoff the phone early once you receive it (CSR said usually 15 days). Rebate is also available if you are 'JUMP' eligible (see my account page from the upgrade link below)

http://www.t-mobile.com/offer/100...omers.html

Instructions and promo materials from TMO site below, reps if you dig it. Cool

Notes per the CSR you need to do the monthly payment plan to be eligible and follow steps at the following:

www.Tmobile.com/promotions

Enter code: Loyalty3Q4

Cell Phone number

Then fill out generated rebate form once you get your new phone.

Pretty pathetic that T-Mobile is calling it an upgrade. Going from a BB10 phone to a Galaxy would be a downgrade in many ways. I'm just going to assume they are referring to older BB phones, and even then it'd be a downgrade in terms of privacy and security. Related article:

Any BB, mine is from 2008 and in rough but functional shape. For me this should be a pretty big upgrade.

You don't have to be on JUMP it's just an alternative path to get the 200$ debit card.

I would like to know this too! Does the BB have to be on the account? We have several old BB's lying around that we don't use anymore. I would love to trade in for a Galaxy Note 4!

Do you think the Note 4 will be released in time so this offer doesn't expire?

Fine print is vague?

I believe you answered our question. According to the fine print you posted:
$200 Rebate Offer: Offer for current customers using BlackBerry devices as of 4/3/14 who upgrade to an eligible Samsung device.
$100 Rebate Offer: Offer for current customers using BlackBerry devices as of 4/3/14 who upgrade to a T-Mobile device.

I remember seeing this promotion sometime back, but didn't realize this was just a repost of the same promotion. Oh well, would have been nice to have another tmobile blackberry promotion, seeing as my credits from the last one just ran out. Nothing to see here folks.

The offer is good until 12/31/14. Not sure about the need to be active. I asked about the 'need to receive text message criteria' and the CSR indicated that was NOT a requirement to get the promo credit using the loyalty program code mentioned in OP.

They sweetened the promotion by doubling it for Samsung purchases. At least as far as I can tell this is different from the other promotion posted when I searched the archives.

If that's a recent change, then that should be helpful to some. But the link in the previous thread posted by mavalpha above does show the $200 for Samsung devices. But maybe that link was updated on TMO's end recently. Regardless, I'm positive you had to have an active blackberry device by 4/3/14 in order to get the promo. It is clearly listed in the fine print. Unless you have gotten it to work otherwise OP; that would be amazing.

My BB has been active since 4/3/14. Just switched from prepaid to post paid family plan 6 for $120 plan. I spent half an hour on the line with the CSR who walked me through she said the 4/3 was not a requirement I read her the fine print.

I got a Galaxy S4 for $40. When you call 611, say cancel, yes and continue. This will direct you to the loyalty department. The loyalty department has the summer saving promotion. So the S4 was $240 with them and the Rep applied the a $200 credit for the BB protomotion.

The $216 Galaxy Avant you ordered is only $96 with the loyalty department. Call them and say you're unsatisfied with the fact you had to pay $216 when you read everyone else is only paying $96. They should be able to get you a slicker deal.
