This is NOT a good deal due to below reasons IMHO:-
1. T-Mobile Choice Unlimited is NO MORE AVAILABLE for new lines.
2. T-Mobile One BOGO is only applicable for an account within minimum 2 lines. So if you are new to T-Mobile One then both the lines should be on T-Mobile One that comes to $120 per month (Not a good deal if you are other carriers like me who pays $50 for 2 lines inluding taxes + fees) - one cannot have just one line on T-Mobile One with BOGO.
3. Trade-In required - T-mobile trade-in values are much lower for iPhones. Example my iPhone6 has trade-in value of $100 at apple store vs in T-mobile it is $54.
4. Most Costco does not carry this promotion and definitely not the 50% of apple watch promotion to stack with this deal.
5. Rebate card of up-to $700 is subject to approval and there have been multiple cases where it has been denied and in that case one is stuck with two new full-priced phones on T-Mobile One pricey plans. Example, https://support.t-mobile.com/thread/143365

Should probably mention in the title that you need to port in a new line to save people some people the time of clicking into the thread to read through all of that.

That second phone is not free if you have to trade in an otherwise good phone.

New line isn't required from what I've read. Just port in a number from a prepaid account to one of your lines. Have to trade in a qualifying device though.

Apple iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus, 7, 7Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 6, 6 Plus, 5s, Samsung Galaxy S8, GS8+, GS8 Active, GS7, GS7 edge, GS7 Active, GS4, GS5, GS6, GS6 edge, GS6 edge+, GS6 active, Note4, Note5, Note8, LG G6, LG V20, LG V30, LG V30+, LG G5, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL

looks like someone else posted right after you and added a bit more info. You need to trade in a phone too, not that good of a deal when you throw that into the mix.

Yeah, someone else posted this same deal a bit before this one and they didn't mention the trade it part. Not a good of a deal unless you have an older phone lying around that is one of the eligible ones or if you can find a really cheap one (I'm assuming the phones need to work).

So your telling me trading in a s4 isn't close to free lol. This is still a good deal since it's a rebate and you can trade in a 5 year old phone to qualify
