(requires eligible trade-in phone - extended thru 2/7 ) > Samsung Trade-in Promo Details Here <
You Do Not need to open a new line of service to utilize the instant discount.
The sales tax is applied to the Reduced cost after the discount.
You Must be the account owner or an authorized user on the T-Mobile account. The account owner can add your name to the account by calling T-Mobile or they can do it online[t-mobile.com].
T-Mobile phones sold from Costco cannot be put on a finance plan. They are purchased upfront at reduced cost. Yes, they can order you a T-Mobile phone that gets delivered straight to you in the mail on payment plan, but these promotions are not for that.
These promotions are not limited to one per account, as some Costco employees believe, the limit is 12 per account.
Trade-in promo FAQs:
Trade-in phones must be in good working condition, with No cracks on the screen or the back, and No water damage. You Do Not need to trade in any accessories. The trade-in phone Does Not have to be a T-Mobile phone. It Does Not have to be unlocked.
You Do Not hand over your trade-in phone to Costco, you get a shipping label and you have 30 days to drop it off at the post office (after you complete the online portion of the rebate yourself).
You Can Not trade in multiple phones and get multiple rebates on the same new phone. One trade-in per new phone purchased.
Although you don't technically need to bring your trade-in phone with you to Costco, it is advisable. Costco needs the IMEI (serial#) of the phone and they are expected to inspect the phone before processing the paperwork for the trade-in. It is true that T-Mobile will perform their own inspection of the phone when they receive it, but it is still a good idea to bring it with you.
Costco Membership is required.
Offer only available in-store.
Offer valid 2/2 - 2/14 only. Device availability varies by location.
See Costco Wireless Center for complete details.
