Rough Math

Example 1: Single line w/ used 6s+port in
Assume iPhone 6s trade in and port in your number that has a current monthly rate of $30/month, Further assume you only have a single line
you essentially will spend net $170 and gave up (trade in) that iPhone 6s, but get an iPhone 11 after three months at T-Mobile (Magenta, $70/month). More line will result in better saving. Detailed calculation is elaborated in this post:
https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=131504191&postcount=592

Example 2: Buy and sell
$ 560 - 4 used Iphones 6s ($140) from Amazon
$ 420 - 3 Months of Magenta Plan for 4 lines ($140 w/ 3rd line free)
$2750 - 4 Iphones 11 64 GB inc tax ($687.5. $630 if no tax)
______
$3730 Out of pocket (Sum above)
-2320 Rebates ($580x4)
-2000 Sell 4 Iphones 11, 3 months later ($500 after seller fee)
= $ 590 Profit

$80 Iphone 6S from TotalWireless https://shop.totalwireless.com/sh...-gold-32gb need to get plan also

Yes, after the Costco associate takes out the phone, grab it and run out the store with it. If you are fast enough, this will work...

READ

Most of the questions asked here are either in the promotion posting, or are just stupid. Read before posting.

The document tells you which items will be accepted for trade. You can NOT do a IP6, or SE, or Samsung, etc.

It really does not matter how much they give you for the trade. The total rebate you will get will total $580.

Yes, this promotion is for people adding T-Mobile new lines. Duh! Think!

Simple math tells you that trading in an XS or XR is probably not going to make sense in most cases. So, if then don't. Duh!

Nobody has asked yet, but yes the phone must be paid for. And yes it must work. And yes it must not be broken. Duh!

And yes, you must have a Costco card to pay for the phone.

How much does ___ cost at Costco? Easy - go to the website. Prices are listed.

:
We can cancel the line after getting the rebate card?
yes, but you'll usually need to reactivate the canceled line if you try to get another deal like this within 90 days of cancellation.

all plans should qualify. for simple choice the costco rep has to call t-mobile with a "token" code to add the line as their system doesn't allow it.
