Deal DetailsLast Edited by amirborna October 10, 2015 at 09:31 AM
Rules (updated 10/10/2015 to be easier to understand)
1. The speaker or Jawbone up rings out $0 automatically and doens't require any authorization from rep or manager.
2. Per rules it needs to be attached to any transaction. This includes any purchase of any amount, which includes money going towards your bill of any amount (including $1) that you would have paid anyways.
3. This is a corporate wide unadvertised sale that many don' t even know about. Some reps won't believe it, some think it's a system glitch, but it is true that it is $0.
4. Some reps will say you have to buy X with it. Could be activation, any dollar amount of any item (phone, tablet, accessories, etc) -- but in reality, this is not true UNLESS they are instructed by their store manager in which they control the store / their rules. If a rep tells you it is not free unlike what I posted above, or you must get X, or Y, or Z along with it, ask to speak to the store manager and if they say so, try another store.
5. This works at all Corporate, TPR, and even some mall kiosk locations.
6. Technically it's one per customer but nothing stops them from giving you more. Some users have success getting more than one, with different transactions.
7. The speaker/jawbone is F. R. E. E.-- No gimmicks. Per the company, it's one per customer, attached to any transaction. A transaction also includes a $1 payment towards your account. If your bill is already paid off, you can still put a $1 towards your account if you want.
Scenario 1 - Go to the store, buy ANY item (if you're not a t-mobile customer) , grab the speaker or jawbone up, and they ring out and the speaker is automatically $0.
Scenario 2 - Go to the store, put any dollar amount towards your bill (called AIRTIME) and attach the speaker / jawbone up. It'll ring out as $0.
Scenario 3 - Go to the store, buy any accessory, and the speaker / jawbone up. The rep instructs that you must get X, Y, Z with the products. Could be higher priced items, activation, tablet, etc. Just be like I'd rather not, I just want to get these two. If they say no, ask to speak to the STORE MANAGER or ASSISTANT MANAGER (check nametag) and if they say what the rep said, try another store. If they allow you, then congrats.
This is confirmed.
Logitech X100 wireless bluetooth speaker
Jawbone UP MOVE
1 per customer, (but many stores and users are getting multiples. Depends on who's helping you and how much they care / the managers rules)
Corporate store confirmed
edit: they had kept the Logitech x100 Grey ones behind the counter. ..other colors were on the wall. ..I just asked for the Grey one. ..he scanned it. . showed up 0$
I uploaded a picture of a flyer the one store had on display and my receipts for the transactions.
Just a note to anybody who plans to search in Los Angeles. Don't waste your time searching in West LA, Mid City, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Culver City, and Santa Monica Beach I've already been there and they are now done unless you want to purchase of over $50.
Good Luck searching for everybody else. - KMX
Uploaded scanned copy of T-Mobile Customer Flyer that an employee printed out for me as of 10/10/15.
Print this out and use as a reference against those employees trying to force you to buy some overpriced accessories.
If they still refuse then ask them to see their updated memo or else you want the number to their district manager/general manager/corporate t-mobile for not abiding to the rules.
You have to be calm, respectful, confident, and most importantly persistent in order for this to work. They are bluffing and you are calling them out on it. Unless they show you a memo that says otherwise, keep persisting. A lot of the t-mobile stores have the Logitech Bluetooth Speakers hidden in the back or locked up behind the register. Most of them are going to lie to you and tell you need to buy a certain amount of accessories or that they sold out. Keep trying multiple stores if you really want this.
Hopefully that will get them to stop trying to upsale you when the item is suppose to be free. Good luck everybody. -KMX
T-Mobile Customer Flyer Uploaded as of 10/10/15.
Be calm, confident, persistent, and not back down with these T-Mobile employees refusing to comply with the promotion professionally. Don't let them intimidate you into buying their overpriced accessories.
I respectfully demanded after debating with the employees for a while that they show me the memo they were sent or the flyer that customers can see.
He showed me a flyer for the customers, along with the memo for employees talking about the promotion with a highlighted area talking about about customers must make a transaction to qualify for the headphones.
I explained to him the legality of his store not complying with the terms and conditions of that statement because the memo clearly states the word "Transaction" is required, not a purchase of anything. Thus I can make a simple payment of any amount to my account which is still considered a transaction and he must comply with the terms and conditions. Nowhere does it list on the flyer about a minimum purchase or accessory bundle. Look at the lower left and corner of the picture I uploaded of the flyer. Zoom in if you have too.
Cheap items to use as purchase:
1. Sony 16gb smartphone micro.USB/USB stick sale price $9.99

Quote from previous post :
the usage of the word MAY indicates that they reserve the right to do as they please.
Basically Jawbone owns the data your band creates.
According to the terms and conditions when you start using their hardware/services you're giving them complete access to map out your activity habits, eating habits and where you are etc.
You're giving jawbone permission to build a profile about you (using data you provide + other data sources)
+ you're giving Jawbone permission to sell your info to any 3rd parties - including advertisers, health insurance companies, health care providers, private investigators or maybe even your employer.
And since you're automatically added in a PUBLIC Directory - any "3rd party" can seek out your information specifically
Essentially anyone that is willing to 'work with' jawbone (pay them $$) can have complete access to your 'health data', movements and even your heartbeats (with the UP3 band).
The last 'Security of your Information' portion doesn't specify that your information is encrypted + it pretty much absolves them of any liability in the event they are hacked and your private info is leaked.
