If you still haven’t bought that new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus you’ve been eyeing since it came out last September, then you absolutely need to check out T-Mobile’s latest smartphone sales — the deal also covers any other brand new phone currently sold in T-Mobile stores. To celebrate tax season, the carrier is going to get you back the sales tax for the phone.

T-Mobile on Monday announced the brand new deal that’s going to be available starting February 1st to existing and new customers with unlimited high-speed data plans.

What you need to do to take advantage of it is order a new phone in a T-Mobile store or online, complete with an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), and then submit your information online. You’ll then receive a prepaid MasterCard worth 11.2% of your phone’s price.

T-Mobile says that’s more than sales tax on your phone, and could be over $100 per device. The bad news is that the prepaid card will ship to your door within 60 days.

“You know the old saying about death and taxes? We’re taking on taxes first,” T-Mobile John Legere said. “With Un-carrier Next, we went All In and included all those added monthly fees and extra taxes on T-Mobile ONE—all without changing the price. Now, we’re giving you back more than you paid in sales tax on all T-Mobile smartphones for you and your entire family. So what are you waiting for?”
