T-Mobile isn’t waiting until next week to drop its Black Friday deals. You’ll be able to take advantage of the disruptive carrier’s promotions starting this Friday, November 16. Here’s what you can expect.

You can get a OnePlus 6T, LG G7 ThinQ, Samsung Galaxy S8, T-Mobile Revvel 2 or Samsung Galaxy S9 for free. Optionally, you can save up to $750 off the Samsung Galaxy S9+, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Samsung Galaxy S8 Active or LG V40 ThinQ.

The new iPhone XR is also listed on T-Mobile’s “Magenta Friday” deals page but is noticeably absent in the press release.

The catch, if you want to call it that, is that you have to open an additional line and trade in an eligible device to qualify for one of the aforementioned deals. Furthermore, the phones are only free after you receive a full complement of monthly bill credits. In some cases, that could take three full years.

Other deals include a buy one, get one half off offer on the Samsung Galaxy Watch or Samsung Gear S3 after 24 monthly bill credits. Other smartwatches can be had at up to $200 off retail when you buy the first at full price. If you’re looking for some audio-minded stocking stuffers, perhaps the following deals may be of interest:

  • $100 off JBL Link 20 voice-activated portable speaker in black (now just $99.99)
  • $125 off JBL Link 300 voice activated speaker in black (now just $124.99)
  • $10 off Skullcandy Ink’d wireless earbuds in black (now just $39.99)
  • $80 off Ultimate Ears BLAST wireless portable speaker in black (now just $99.99)
  • $50 off Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST wireless portable speaker in black and blue (now just $229.99)
  • $40 off Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM portable waterproof speaker in - Phantom Black, SubZero Blue and Avocado (now just $59.99)

I understand what you're saying but you're talking like you are going to pay a monthly bill for nothing, you are going to receive a service, unlimited minutes or data whatever you want to pay for the plan so those $720 for a year of service plus a $700 smartphone it's not a bad deal or you say T-mobile should give you a phone for free just because?

Not sure if you can still do it but in the past, most people will get the rebate/credit and then cancel the new line that was just added. So impact is only activation cost + 2-3 months of services = 24-36 month of credits to your bill.
