Deal originally ended 3/21 but has been extended to 3/28. http://membershipwireless.com/content/offer13

1. costco flyer from t-mobile site doc, officially good through 3/28: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs...medium=SMS
2. t-mobile: it ended yesterday 3/26
https://support.t-mobile.com/docs...medium=SMS

Costco membership is needed both at the wireless kiosk and at checkout (when you pay).

Quote :
JimboFX: Besides the phone is locked to T-Mobile. It can be unlocked after 40 days though.
Quote :
slade123: In the previous Costco deals, it was the T-mobile Essentials plan, which costs about $100 per month for 2 new lines. They give further discounts if you're a veteran or over 55 IIRC.
At the kiosk, must have IMEI number of phone you are trading in. The rep may either ask or want to verify the condition of that phone.

Similar deal at T-mobile retail store, but that rebate is provided by monthly bill credits. Costco rebate is by prepaid Mastercard.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What do I need to do?
Purchase a new qualifying Apple iPhone X, XR, XS, or XS Max at Full Retail Price (plus tax) during the promo period.
Activate at least 2 new voice lines for new customers or add on at least 1 new voice line on an existing account. Any voice rate plan is eligible.
Trade in a paid-off, eligible Apple iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, or X in good condition.

===========================
General information compilation
===========================

Here is a sheet guide based on information I collected today on this deal, both in-store, online, and talking to reps to the best of my knowledge

Steps:
You must have an old iPhone to trade in to use this deal. If you don't have one, you can't get the deal.
It is recommended to use the cheapest and oldest iPhone (an iPhone 6) to take advantage of this deal, as you won't get much back out of it. Most estimates are around $50-60 for the phone in good, working acceptable order at this time.
You need to be ready to open (2) new lines on a T-Mobile account, or add (1) new line on the T-Mobile account. You must be the original account owner, or be an authorized user on the plan to make changes on your account.
When you are ready with both 1 & 2 from above, you are ready to go buy at Costco.
At the wireless kiosk and you have the option of purchasing the following, which seem to be mostly 64GB available at the moment. It is unknown if all stores are carrying 128, 256, 512GB versions.
iPhone X (if in stock, not all stores have it available)
iPhone XR
iPhone XS
iPhone XS Max

After you have made your choice, you can either get the option to make the new t-mobile account or add one to your existing account. It runs about $120 for 2 lines at the general plan, or ~$40 (I think?) for adding a new line to an existing account.

Per Jonnyjett: OR, if you plan on cancelling the service as soon as possible, and want a plan that costs the least amount of money, then sign up for the "Talk and Text Only Plan", which is $20/line and includes all taxes and fees. Kiosk may have to call Tmo to get this option.
<<< some reported that it doesn't work: https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=126426298&postcount=1967
If you want to add it to an existing account, you have the option to drop an existing line/phone number and you can re-add this promotion as a new number so you don't have to pay for an additional line. <<<< not sure definitions of "drop" but please note the
90 days clause

Per Jonnyjett: If you have a good grandfathered account, with perks that you'll lose by adding a line, or you have a "business account" or "business rate" (which is code for discounts that can't be replicated and a plan that can't be messed with), then request either a whole new account, or request a "sub account". With a "sub account" you can have a plan like the "Talk and Text Only" Plan, and it won't screw up your grandfathered plan. And you can cancel your sub account without any ramifications to your grandfathered account. Kiosk may have to call Tmo to get this option. The only question is, does a sub account require 1 or 2 new lines? I opened 2 to be safe. Besides, you make a $50 Costco Cash card by BYOD on the 2nd line. So you're $10 ahead on the deal.


You cannot add a new line if you are at the limit on your plan (10 for general family plan)

Kiosk rep will print out invoice for you to pay at cashier.
After you pay cashier and get new phone, go back to Kiosh rep.

The Kiosk rep will verify your trade in, and input the IMEI and information of the trade in phone.

At the end, Kiosk rep will print out a Shipping label and receipt with IMEI of old phone.

Give it 24hrs, then register for rebate online: https://promotions.t-mobile.com/OfferSearch (Enter new line info)
You ship off the old phone + receipt inside box on your own.
Just ship the phone, nothing else. Make sure you wipe it (Find My iPhone is turned off).

The trade in is worth -$x off your rebate. i.e., if you get $50 for your iPhone 6, you will get ($750-$50) a $700 rebate gift card in return.
The rebate comes in a credit giftcard, mastercard from what I have noticed. Some other options people are getting is $750 in bill credits instead.
The deal was originally from 3/20-3/21, but the website has now been updated to 3/21-3/28 http://membershipwireless.com/content/offer13

exact official wordings of 90 days clause:
Since a new line activation is required for this offer, you can't cancel a line with the intention of activating a new line just to take advantage of this offer. If a line has been canceled within the past 90 days, it must be resumed before you can add a brand-new line to qualify.

Wonder if costco knows about this, since wireless company is an approved 3rd party, and banning customer is SO UNcostco like, in terms of customer relationship and reputation.

You can if you add two new lines
I don't have any t-mobile lines now, so I assume I would need 4 lines. I was just wondering if t-mobile has any issues with having two separate accounts under the same address or anything.

I currently do not have t-mobile service, I was thinking of porting over three lines to their 2 + 1 plan. Can I do all of that in the Costco?

Same situation for me...what's the best way, anyone?
new folks require 2 line to move so come over and get new phone for 1 line and to get best value keep your iphone 7s, just buy cheapo Iphone 6 from online and trade in that one

I too ordered the total wireless iphone 6 this morning and for sure it won't be here by tomorrow.
I guess will miss this deal. Is there any place store i can stop by to buy used phones in northern NJ or downtown NY?
Just did a quick chat with tmobile rep. They said the document on tmobile.com has no end date so the deal would still be valid and to not go off of the dates provided in warehouse. As long as tmobile is still running the promotion, Costco should honor.

When you trade in the iPhone, do you need to give them the charger/lightning cable too or just the phone itself?

You can have two different accounts but that would cost more than 4 lines in one account.
