Get a free phone and free money

Valid through 2/12/2014:

Step 1) Log into your Discover card account and click on “Discover Extras”.  Check to see if your account has the following offer: $50 back on a purchase of $50 or more at Boost Mobile:

Step 2) Log into TopCashBack, Find Boost Mobile and click through:

Step 3) Pick out a phone (or accessory).  Make sure your total comes to $50 or more.  If you spend less than $85 total, you’ll earn a profit (if all goes well):


Don’t forget to pay with your Discover card!

UPDATE: A reader tried to do this by buying accessories rather than a phone, but the TopCashBack transaction shows he’s due 6% back, not $35.  So, it appears that the TopCashBack portion of this deal is dependent upon buying a phone.

Is anyone going to try this?

Got one for $52. Hope this works according to plan. Thanks!

I got no credit from anybody. Filed a complaint from cashback and heard nothing yet except it could be 2-3 years before they investigate. Wrote Discover and they said the money was coming from boost mobile, and would take 2-3 statements to show up.
The stupid useless phone came right away though.

Nothing has showed up on top cashback for me yet from yesterday’s purchase. I have not used them previously (I did have an account) so hopefully that is the delay.

In the fine print it says on the Discover page – save $50 on service purchases, not just purchases. Does this mean only for plans and not for hardware???

Did you get the credit from Discover?

I’m think that Discover will pay you as long as the charge is from Boost mobile and is $50 or more

I gave it a shot -and in my cashback report it says 6% (not $35) I bought accessories. So I took one for the team – I’ll survive

No worries. I expect Discover will come through. I’ll let you know when I know.

Thanks. Sorry about that. I guess they don’t consider accessories to be devices. Hopefully the Discover payment will go through as expected

So does this make sense? Buy the Moto G for $129 Get $50 from discover $35 from cashback and $30 account credit from Boost = $15 for the phone?

$30 account credit for Unlimited plan which cost you $50.

Got the $50 offer at Discover so bought a phone for $56 thru TopCashback. Now we wait and see if how it all plays out. I’ll update here once I get updates.

Anyone receive TopCashback or Discover credit yet? No luck for me so far.

Strange,I’ve received the phone already but if I check the order status on Boost it shows In Progress.
TopCashback shows pending.
Signed into Discover to check on credit and it shows a purchase from Boost on 2/4 and then a refund from Boost on 2/5 for the same amount…

That’s very weird. It looks like you stumbled upon a different way to get a free phone.

So today is the last day for this offer. I was waiting to see if anyone had the credit post before i jumped in. Anyone have any success?

Devon P

I received the Discover credit after having to email them but they instantly credited it after seeing a Boost mobile purchase on my account. I’m still waiting on TopCashback as I had to file a claim when it didn’t post. Worse case I spent $6.17 after Discover credit and will sell the phone on Ebay.

Just got the $50 off $50 offer after having $30 off $50 previously.
Anyone have luck in unlocking these phones to be used overseas?

Just got the offer for $50 off again expiring 3/05. Anyone have any final verdict of whether this worked or not?

I received the $50 back after buying a $56 phone from Boost. I then sold it on Ebay for $35. Still waiting on the TopCashback $35 but I’m up $20 after Ebay fees and shipping.
