Get your rebate
You'll receive a bill credit based on the Fair Market Value of your trade-in, then the remainder offer value as a rebate card.
You'll need to submit a rebate using promo code COSTCOAPPLE390 online at T-Mobile Rebates page.
You'll receive your rebate (via virtual Prepaid MasterCard® Card) within 6 - 8 weeks, and you should expect to receive a text message confirming your submission was received. You'll also receive another text message with the virtual card details once you're approved for the offer. Learn more about Submitting and tracking a rebate.

Anything else I should know?
You can't combine this offer and Carrier Freedom or #GetOutoftheRed on the same lines on your account.
Limit of 12 redemptions per account.
This offer's official name is Costco 2018 Apple XR, XS, XS Max Trade In Trade up.


1) Phone is locked to T-mobile, you will need to keep it active with Tmobile Sim for 40 days, then request Tmobile to unlock

2) Trade in devices from other carriers is OK but it need to be paid off already, not on installing payment plan. Trade-in phone does not have to be unlocked

3) Tmobile only allow one trade in per line

4) Need to purchase phone in Costco store, NEVER let Costco Rep order online and ship to you (you will lose $50 discount + stuck to monthly bill credit instead of prepaid rebate card)

Use the following link to submit your promotion. The link from the Costco rep does not work. When they ask for the IMEI, please put the one from your new device. I called and confirmed.
https://promotions.t-mobile.com/OfferSearch
You also have to submit two pictures. A picture of your receipt and a picture of the back of the box from your new phone. Just follow the instruction.
***You should also receive a text message right after your click "submit".



Pro and Con compare to Apple $100 extra trade-in promo:

Pros:
- Phones are $50 cheaper at Costco
- Costco waives activation and SIM
- 2% cash back from Citi
- Ability to trade-in something other than iPhone
- No new line required
- For certain iphone models trade-in value is better (i.e Iphone 5C, 5, 5S, 7, 7+)

Cons:
-Waiting for rebate
-Wating 40 days to get phone unlocked
-Trade in multiple iPhone at same times to apply credit to new device
-Need access to Costco membership
-Need Tmobile acct
-Taxed on retail Costco price of iPhone (reportedly some Apple customers have been taxed post-credit)

Can I activate using my mom's T-Mobile SIM (I use AT&T), sign up for the rebate, and then continue to use the phone with my AT&T SIM card?
You will need to keep the phone active for 40 days with Tmobile sim card , then request Tmo to unlock for ATT

No, just says: "Use the new device with any postpaid T-Mobile voice plan". Wanted to confirm that that means with existing postpaid plan..?

From the last Promo, either open a new postpaid acct or upgrade one line from existing acct will qualify for rebate.
