T-Mobile’s new promotion lets you recoup half the cost of an unlocked Pixel


Buying an unlocked Google Pixel or Pixel XL isn’t as cheap as it was to buy the Nexus handsets of yesteryear, but T-Mobile reckons that they’ve come up with a great offer for owners of unlocked Pixel handsets. If you’ve bought an unlocked Pixel or Pixel XL, then T-Mobile will give you half the purchase price back if you sign up to its ONE Plan. Naturally, it isn’t quite as cut and dried as that, so join us after the break for more details.

You’ve bought your unlocked Pixel handset, signed up to T-Mobile’s ONE Plan, and are now expecting half the handset’s purchase price to be summarily refunded. Unfortunately, T-Mobile will only be issuing refunds in the form of credits to your monthly bill over the 24 months period of the contract.

“To take advantage of this limited time offer, purchase an unlocked Pixel from Google or anywhere else, sign up for T-Mobile ONE, then just show us your proof of purchase via our validation site. You’ll automatically see a $13.55 credit to your monthly bill for 24 months (for a grand total of $325, or half the cost of a 32GB Pixel).”

After validating your proof of purchase via T-Mobile’s verification site, you’ll receive an amount equal to half the price of a Pixel 32GB ($325) credited to your account, spread over the 2 year period of the plan, equating to $13,55 per month.

If you are still on the fence about buying a Pixel handset, perhaps this T-Mobile offer will tempt you to take the plunge.
