As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been with T-Mobile for a few months now with intentions to leave — but they keep adding to the value and making it difficult to jump ship. Today, T-Mobile has begun offering a free 2-screen Netflix subscription to all T-Mobile subscribers with 2+ lines on a T-Mobile ONE plan (notably excluding the 2-for-$100 plan and the T-Mobile Unlimited 55+ plan). That’s a value of $9.99/month. And if you want a higher-level Netflix plan, you can pay the difference via your T-Mobile bill (at 5X with an Ink Cash / Ink Plus card). While the terms state that the offer can change at any time, this does not appear to be intended as a limited-time offer.
Additionally, with this week’s T-Mobile Tuesdays offers, you can get a free 90-day Pandora Premium trial pass — though that deal is only open to those who are not current Pandora Premium subscribers and who have not previously redeemed a Pandora Premium Trial pass. For those unfamiliar with T-Mobile Tuesdays, it is a weekly rewards program where T-Mobile gives away free stuff to anyone with a qualifying T-Mobile plan and the T-Mobile Tuesdays app (even my prepaid wireless hotspot gets these offers).
- Free 2-screen Netflix plan ($9.99 plan) — or pay the difference if you want a higher-level plan — for customers with 2+ lines on a qualifying T-Mobile ONE plan (Existing customers can call 1-866-437-9418 to speak with customer care and get enrolled)
- Pandora Premium is one of this week’s T-Mobile Tuesdays offers — get a free 90-day Pandora Premium Trial pass through your T-Mobile Tuesdays app
- If you’re an existing Netflix subscriber, it may take 1-2 billing cycles for your Netflix billing to move over to T-Mobile (Note that video streams at DVD quality (480p), though you can pay the $2 difference to upgrade to the $11.99 premium plan that includes Ultra HD and HDR)
- Pandora Premium Trial Pass is only available for those who are not Pandora Premium Subscribers and have not used a trial pass in the past
Another solid offering from T-Mobile. I’ve had Netflix since Netflix was a thing, so this is worth a straight $10 to me. From a travel perspective, a Netflix subscription is great because you can now download many movies and TV episodes for offline viewing. This was great on our recent trip as both my wife and I downloaded different things on our phone prior to the trip. We had several intra-European flights with no in-flight entertainment where downloaded Netflix episodes really came in handy.
The Pandora Premium trial pass will likely appeal to a more limited audience as many people have probably redeemed some sort of trial for this before. However, my wife hasn’t and she loves to use Pandora, especially now that we’re on an unlimited plan with T-Mobile. She may redeem her free trial pass — though, if she does, I will set a reminder on my phone to cancel it in 89 days. Otherwise, it will renew at $9.99/month, and I don’t think it’s worth that much to us.
