T-Mobile and its chief executive John Legere have given numerous indications that the carrier’s sales of Apple devices are much slower than they would like, and we now have another one to toss on the pile: A newly announced special offer will see T-Mobile pay $100 to customers who purchase a new iPhone and iPad at the same time.
As noted by John Legere on his Twitter account, T-Mobile is offering to give customers a $100 prepaid Mastercard if they purchase an iPhone and an iPad at the same time and activate them on a qualifying postpaid plan. Purchases must be made online on T-Mobile’s website or over the phone in order to qualify, and the deal ends on August 2nd.
Here are the terms of the promotion, as stated on T-Mobile’s site:
For a limited time, when you purchase both an Apple iPhone and an Apple iPad tablet on T-Mobile.com or through 1-877-387-4324, you may qualify for a $100 prepaid MasterCard card.
To qualify, you must have both devices on an active account in good standing. Qualifying postpaid plans required; a Mobile Internet plan with a minimum of 1GB of data is required on the iPad. Devices must be purchased on the same day and receipts uploaded to http://www.t-mobile.com/promotions using promo code AppleBundle3Q4 within 30 days of purchase. Rebate cards may not be combined or used with any other rebate card offer, free, or other promotional offers. Reward cards will be mailed to your current T-Mobile billing address. Valid reward card requests take six to eight weeks from receipt to process. Offer expires 9/2/2014.
