New customers can get 20% off a Magenta or Magenta Plus plan and existing customers (or new customers getting a non-magenta plan) can get $200 off a 5G phone.

Price for 4 lines on Magenta with 20% Insider Hookup: $112

See more example costs in the last FAQ question below.

See redemption instructions in the wiki section below.

Offer ends September 30th.

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 $96 (w/third line free), 4 lines is $112, 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.

100-use Type 3 code (this is for existing customers only! Read about the code types in the post above): Q6XRGEQ3 (has 29 uses left as of 09/17 @ 11:30 A.M)


Best place to mine codes is reddit.

How to redeem codes:


For Type 1, you must redeem the code by September 30th on the insider website using an eligible number you plan to port in. From there, you have 14 days to open a Magenta or Magenta Plus account either in-store, via online/phone support, or online, and complete your port in of the number used for the code. You should receive a text confirming eligibility within 24 hours of the port being completed. The 20% discount will apply to ALL voice lines on the account (lines that go with phones) even ones you add in the future. Tablet and accessory lines will be regular price.

For Type 2 and 3, you must purchase an eligible 5G phone by September 30th. Once you have the phone in-hand, you must redeem the code online on the insider website by using the phone number and IMEI of the new device.

Does this work if I am on an AT&T family plan but not the primary there, but am willing to move my line to T-Mobile as a new primary account with them?

Currently on MetroPCS family plan for $100 . Would I be able to switch to T-Mobile using this offer on the 4 Lines Magenta plan? Is the monthly price going to be $112 All the time?

Speaking of the Magenta plan. Would each line get access to their own Netflix and T-Mobile Tuesday? Or just the main account holder? ( Me).

Unfortunately metropcs is now metro by t-mobile and they're an mvno of T-Mobile so lines ported from there won't qualify.

Each magenta plan gets a netflix basic account free. That's one screen in SD. You can use that as a discount on a standard or ultra netflix plan. Magenta plus gets netflix standard free. It's only one account but you can share the login with others.

Thanks for the information. Sucks that it won't port over. The rest sounded pretty good for an extra bit of cash.

The monthly price would be all the time, the discount doesn't expire. One Netflix per account but each line gets T-Mobile Tuesday. MetroPCS is a T-Mobile MVNO and would not qualify. You need to port in from anything that's not T-Mobile or Sprint or one of their MVNOs.

There are ways to get it but it would pretty much involve losing 3 of those 4 numbers and getting new ones for those people.

Actually you can get the deal but little complicated......

1- get a new account with five lines from Att/Verizon
2- port these numbers to Tmobile to get the 20% discount.
3- now create another new account with att/verizon and port your metro lines

4- call Tmobile and change your Tmobile numbers with the your numbers from att/Verizon.

The first step is called porting and that's what will give the discount and the 2nd step is not porting but rather changing your numbers and that will not void your discount.

It is quite difficult but it is worth I think.

Your question has been already answered. Simple answer is No it won't work because mint mobile is part of Tmobile.

Though there's a way you can do it but it's a long process...


1- get a new account with five lines from Att/Verizon
2- port these numbers to Tmobile to get the 20% discount.
3- now create another new account with att/verizon and port your metro lines

4- call Tmobile and change your Tmobile numbers with the your numbers from att/Verizon.

The first step is called porting and that's what will give the discount and the 2nd step is not porting but rather changing your numbers and that will not void your discount.

Using the link and code provided, got the following error message:
"This promotion is only for existing T-Mobile customers. If you feel this is an error, please contact us at 1-877-470-3619."

Edit: Visited the subreddit and found that the codes are specific to each type. The code OP shared is for Type 3.
