The insider hookup is BACK and extended to September 30th!

There are 3 types of codes:

Type 1: 20% off Hookup
This will be the most popular by far. It will give customers porting in from AT&T/Verizon/Eligible MVNO 20% off all voice lines for the life of the account, even lines added later in the life of the account. This offer is stackable with pretty much all existing promos such as discounts on phones when you add a line, etc. This will also stack with third line free.

Type 2: $200 off a 5G phone for new customers
This one will probably be the least popular. New customers can get a code for $200 off a 5G phone. It will stack with other active promos, for example if a 5G phone has 50% off with add a line, etc. This type is only really useful for those opening a new account that isn't a magenta or magenta plus account, such as when opening a 55+ account or a first responder account.

Type 3: $200 off a 5G phone for existing customers
Existing customers can get a $200 rebate card when they purchase a new 5G phone from T-Mobile on an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP). No add-a-line necessary.

We have PLENTY of codes over on the subreddit (r/tmobile) and in the subreddit's Discord server (linked in the about/sidebar of the subreddit).


FAQ:

Q: What is a "Hookup Code"?
A: A hookup code is a unique code provided by T-Mobile and Sprint employees. Each employee gets 3 codes to hand out of each type. This code can be registered online along with your phone number to give you discounts, either 20% off the account or $200 off a 5G phone, depending on the code.

Q: I used a code. Now what?
A: If you got no error messages, you're all set. For the 20% off code simply visit a T-Mobile store to setup a new account and port in the number you registered the code with. You don't even have to mention hookup to the employee if you don't want to, everything will be automatic. For the $200 off code, you will use it after buying a new 5G phone on EIP and receiving the phone.

Q: I already have a T-Mobile account. Can I get this deal?
A: No. New accounts only. You would need to port in a number from a carrier that is not a T-Mobile/Sprint account or one of their MVNOs into a brand new account using an account holder that does not currently have a postpaid T-Mobile account.

Q: My number was on T-Mobile or Sprint in the last 90 days. Do I qualify?
A: No. In order to qualify as a new customer, the number you port in (and use for the insider hookup) cannot have been on T-Mobile or Sprint (or one of their MVNOs) in the last 90 days.

Q: Can I stack other promos?
A: Yes! 20% Hookup is compatible with pretty much all other promos like phone trade in deals.

Q: How much would my plan be with the 20% discount?
A: On Magenta, 1 line is $56, 3 lines is $112 (w/third line free), 4 lines is $128, and additional lines are +$16 each (up to 8 lines). On Magenta Plus, 1 line is $68, 3 lines is $112, 4 lines is $136, and additional lines are +$24 each (up to 8 lines). Both plans are taxes included, so what you see is what you pay.

IF YOU STILL NEED A CODE OF ANY TYPE VISIT THE R/TMOBILE DISCORD! WE HAVE PLENTY TO GIVE OUT!

The insider hookup ends August 31st September 30th.

Update 8/31 20% codes expire today. You MUST redeem a 20% code on the number you plan to port in by the end of day today, and then you will have 14 days from there to open the account and complete the port in.


Those with a $200 off code must purchase the phone on EIP by end of day today. If the order is placed before September 1st it will be eligible for the $200 code even if you redeem it later.


Insider Hookup has been extended to September 30th!


Update 8/22: The T-Mobile Discord has a ticketing system setup to hand out codes on a first come first serve basis. You can find a link to the Discord in the T-Mobile subreddit's about section/sidebar.

Existing customers

The offer is not designed to be claimed by existing customers. If you want to try and get it anyway, you will need an eligible port-in number for the primary line. Lines 2+ can be COR'd (moved) from your existing T-Mobile account or ported from a T-Mobile/Sprint MVNO. However, line 3 is free right now, and that means the number ported for line 3 cannot be an existing T-Mobile number. It can be a non-T-mobile number or a new number. Otherwise you'll have to pay for the line.

Line 1: Port from competitor
Line 2: Any number This is incorrect, line 2 would also need to be either a new line or a port in.
Line 3 (to be free): Port from competitor or new number
Line 4+: Any number

This is doable, but a bit complex.


EXCLUSIVE CODE (Working as of 8/9/2020 2:45 PM PST): MAGENTA54 (now expired)

Will non tmo/sprint mvno or prepaid like Verizon prepaid be eligible? When will it expire? I'm paid through 9/15 but ready to switch as Verizon prepaid deprioritization makes it useless.

Also can I get 1 line now, and lines I add later be also discounted, or it would be just the lines brought in at the same time?

Yes non-tmo and non-sprint mvnos are eligible. Once the account is setup with hookup all future voice lines added will also get 20% off.

So if I am already a TMO customer, there is no way to take advantage of this?

Not without getting at least 2 new numbers and even then it's complicated. This will include the third line free going on so both the primary port in and the third line cannot be an existing TMobile number. Line 2 and lines 4+ can be moved from an existing account theoretically.

If I port in using this promo and add or remove lines in the future, does 20% dc still remain?

So I have 1 data only line on AT&T, 1 sidekick line on Sprint, and 2 lines on Teltik (T-Mobile business lines under Teltik)

Do you think it's possible for me to move all 4 lines to T-Mo with this promo?

Yes. Open new account (billing account number). Port or what ever needed to be eligible for 20%. Transfer all line minus how many port in required for promo. On the old account port out to google (cost $20) after 90days. Port back in over the line(s) first ported in for promo.

This is HUGE! Sucks that I am with sprint with 4 lines. Do I port one line over to ATT tonight and get my first line activated first? The other three will most likely join me in Dec.

ofcourse assuming I can get my hands on a hookup code though.
