Starting December 20th customers on an eligible plan with at least 2 paid lines can add a line for free.


Eligible SOC list: https://i.imgur.com/LZegl3r.jpg

Please note: There's a lot of misinformation and confusion around this promo. Inevitable when a promo like this happens half a month after an identical one just ended. Here are some critical nuggets of info:
  • The promo is called "2020 Line On Us 4"
  • It is fully stackable with "2020 Line On Us 3"
  • Internal docs mention a scenario where it isn't stackable. It is referring to "third line free" promos and only to accounts opened on the 20th or later. This appears to be causing confusion.
  • The promo seems to be showing on accounts as line on us 3 (double if you already had it). It's a known issue and being worked on. Will not affect eligibility.

Offer now available. Some reps are not yet aware of the promo's existence, so please be patient with them. You can also add the line as normal online and the promo will automatically apply within a bill cycle.

Ineligible stackable promos:
  • iPhone 12 "on us" (2020 Apple Trade Activate P3)
  • BOGO iPhone (2020 Apple Buy 2 P11)
  • Free Galaxy A71 5G with new line (2020 Samsung Activate P12)
  • Free OnePlus 8/8T+ 5G with new line (2020 OnePlus Activate P5)
  • Costco BYOD promos
  • TFB-exclusive promos

(PS: check this post here https://www.reddit.com/r/tmobile/..._your_soc/ to get a Chrome or Firefox extension that will make finding your SOC easy, or see the guide here https://reddit.com/r/tmobile/comm...soc_codes/ to find it manually)

If your promo isn't working under your account properly try this (worked for me):
https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=143239985&postcount=899


Still on TMO ONE All In Promo plan (FRLTUL2LP) which is never eligible for free lines?

This is a great (grandfathered) plan as it gives you 2 lines for $100 or $80 after 2GB data limit kickback on the 2 lines (or even less if you have the plan with T-Mobile employee hookup code). Plus with the additional promotion you get HD streaming, 10GB full speed hotspot and twice the international data speed (256kbs instead of 128kbs).

BUT... this account only supports 3 lines and unless you got the one free line they offered once under this plan you never got and will never get a free line with the plan.

But if the plan works out for you can move to another T-Mobile One plan (FRLTULF2) which cost a little bit more (2 lines for $120 or $100 after kickbacks) but you will be eligible for the free line and hopefully for additional free lines in the future (the plan supports up to 8 lines in total). The reps are also be able to move the kickback and ONE Plus promotion to the new plan. They might not do it immediately for the new free line but this is also possible and might need another try.
Plus the new plan includes $10.99 Netflix Standard HD account contribution which also needs to be factored in as a bonus.

If you want to get out of that hole and make the change here is my conversation regarding the plan change with T-Force on Twitter:
https://slickdeals.net/f/14713250-t-mobile-customers-add-a-line-for-free-starting-december-20th?p=144023981#post144023981

Then I called 611 at night and asked the overseas team to also add the promo add-ons to new free line so that all lines on the account have the ONE Plus promo (no kickback on the free line of course):
https://slickdeals.net/f/14713250-t-mobile-customers-add-a-line-for-free-starting-december-20th?p=144031265#post144031265

Summary of the process and overview of changes:
https://slickdeals.net/f/14713250-t-mobile-customers-add-a-line-for-free-starting-december-20th?p=144039584#post144039584

As I wrote it needs some time and the right reps to make it happen as I struggled with reps in the past to switch to a different T-Mobile One plan and not ending up with a Magenta plan and losing the kickback and One Plus promotion.
Good luck!

-----------------------------------------------------
Regarding costs to add new line

If you add the line via the website, youll pay $10 for the SIM card to be shipped to you.
If you add the line via a phone call, youll pay the $10 SIM card charge and also $20 for assisted set-up. It is relatively easy to get both of these comped.
If you have a spare sim-card or eSIM, you can use that instead of paying $10 for a new one (bear in mind that it may not be able to do SA 5G). You will need to call since the website does not allow re-use of old cards. (You can also do this via online chat support lines like in-app chat and t-force on twitter)
Expired cards do work, but you have to request a replacement. Again, no SA 5G.
If you have a Costco near you, they will give you the sim card and activate for you for free. You also may get the YMMV $100 cash card (but so far the jury is out if it actually will go through)

Most of the time, Senior plan, First Response and Military Plan always excluded.
12-20-2020 at 10:00 AM
Just worked for me on my military plan.
12-20-2020 at 10:11 AM
My agent told me my military plan is not qualified.
12-20-2020 at 05:26 PM
T-Mobile ONE Military plan here, not eligible for this promotion according to the dude on the 611 line
12-21-2020 at 08:37 AM
Military plans all have different SOCs. Please refer to the instructions above to determine that.

There's no catch, once they have you signed up with a bunch of free numbers though it'll make it very hard to leave them.
12-19-2020 at 07:19 PM
The only catch is if you don't have a Taxes Included plan. You would then pay taxes on the new line.
12-20-2020 at 10:52 AM
This will also be a win for T-Mobile because from a marketing and advertising standpoint they can say that they’ve added “x” number of lines for the past quarter/year.
Joelioli asked this question on 12-19-2020 at 07:48 PM
12-19-2020 at 08:19 PM
Generally after 1 year you can. You would still have to likely maintain 2 lines to keep the free line.
12-21-2020 at 09:49 AM
How to know which line is a free line?
12-23-2020 at 04:23 AM
I removed a paid line in May. Added a free line in June or so. Also removed a paid line 2 days ago and added a free line several hours later the same day. I’m still waiting to see if this particular promo will show up on my account.

Most likely not since it wasn't last time. I had to switch to MAGENTA2 to get it.
12-21-2020 at 09:23 AM
I was told by the chat rep that Magenta Amplified plan customers are eligible for this promo as well. Try again and post your finding.
12-22-2020 at 11:34 AM
I'm on MGAMP2 and was told by chat rep that it's not eligible.

I just did an on-line chat with T-Mobile and was told that the Magenta 55+ plans are limited to 2 lines and therefore are not included in the free line promotion. If anyone gets a different answer, please post!
12-20-2020 at 10:14 AM
Agent said regular magenta and magenta plus are qualified.

I have simple choice plan with 10 lines on it, can I add one more free line as a part of this promotion?
If it's 10 voice lines then probably not. If it's less than 10 voice lines plus a couple of data lines then yes

Anyone able to get this change of SOC today? I am on chat now and told I can't. The rep says I can only change to Magenta for another $100
Try a different rep. TIULFM9 is another one plus plan with 9-12 lines. Ask to change to either FRLTULFM9 or TIULFM9. I had mine change to TIULFM9 via T-force just today.

I called and got my fourth free-line and a free OnePlus 8 5G phone. Account shows the new free line promotion is added to Free Line on Us 3 (changed from $30 to $60). The nice CSR said that OnePlus 8 is the only free phone available this time.
How did u get the Oneplus 8 for free? I thought it doesn't stack with the free line promo?

I added the line at Costco today to a Simple Choice 2GB plan. The dealer's computer didn't even have that plan to add, so he put the line on a SC 6GB plan which was +$15. He then submitted the $100 Costco rebate for us and while on the phone with T-mobile to port the line, got them to switch it to the 2GB plan. Free sim and activation.

When I checked online later, it shows "2020 Line on Us 3" discount on the account and no change in the monthly bill amount..

Edit: The $100 Costco promo said the dates were 12/18 - 12/24

Same here, I was able to stack an iPhone mini with the free line. Just payed tax for the iphone, phones available per the rep are the A71, Samsung FE & iPhone mini 64 GB. The iphone is sold out but I was able to add it to the promo & have it ship the last week of December. The rep did not know about the promo when I first called so it took some time. The phone price will be applied via bill credits for 24 moths meaning that if you leave TMobile within that time the remaining balance comes due.

Quote from joatmon22 :
I'm curious why you are discouraging people from doing both. I did the promo last time through Costco and submitted the $100 BYOD rebate. My free line showed as free on my account right away. I was denied the $100 rebate but called their promotions department and after review the rep said I should have been qualified and manually approved my rebate. I feel that worst case is you get denied but if you don't submit rebate you will not get it so why not go for it?
Could you please give me their promotion department's number please? I also applied rebate for the free line, and I'm expecting them to deny.

It may or may not stack. You can take the risk. It is clearly shown on the front page that it does not stack.
Even if it shows up that it will stack like the person mentioned. One can receive the bill statement 1 month later and one can lose out the free line.

I thought 55+ plans do not qualify for the free line promos. How did you manage to add a free line?
I received a text from T mobile that said I qualified for a free line. Don't believe it was a promotion but a targeted offer.. I did not learn about it from Slickdeals.

Do they give the cash card right away or you need to file the rebate?
You need to submit online. It takes 4 weeks or so.

So there are lot of people here saying they have SOC FRLTUL2LP and 3 lines, and can't add any more. I have FRLTUL2LP and only 2 lines. Not a tmobile expert, so please bear with me here, but I pay between 64 and 80 per month, based on whether or not I get the low data discount that month. Can I add a third line for free? Do I miss anything by switching to a Magenta plan? What are people paying for Magenta, in terms of dollars per line?

Just to let you know, and anybody else reading this, saving a transcript does not help you or do anything in any way if the rep is wrong. This has been proven many times. The most they can do is give your a credit for their mistake.
So true, but on the Tmo site, it shows this on my Account History:

12/20/20
08:45 AM
New line added
New line xxx-xxx-xxxx was added to your account on 12/20/2020 at 08:45 AM . This line is on the SC FM UTT+UNL 4 lines Promo plan for $0.0 per month plus taxes and fees.

Likely only the free line this time around, and if you're lucky, the $100 for BYOD...i wouldn't count on a free phone for this round.

Generally, stuff I do at the kiosk is divorced from stuff I do with CSR/Tforce. But considering how freaking long this thread is... It seems communication..and kept promises... Are not their Forte.

The last round was like the stars aligning... Free line, $100 port, $200 BYOD at costco, and the free 4A 5G with trade in
