T-Mobile frees Google’s Pixel from Verizon and gives you half your money back

October 27th, 2016 at 11:23 AM
T-Mobile Google Pixel Offer

Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL are Verizon exclusives in the US for the time being when it comes to carrier sales, but T-Mobile won’t let that slide. The “Uncarrier” on Thursday announced a Pixel promotion that targets Verizon customers specifically. If you purchased a Google phone from Big Red, just bring it over to T-Mobile and the carrier will give you half of the purchase price back.

DON’T MISS: Are these legs actually shiny? This picture is driving the internet insane

Sign up for a T-Mobile One plan with your Verizon Pixel, and you’ll get $325 back, or half what the Google Pixel costs. Well, you’re not going to receive the money all at once, though. In fact, you’re not getting any cash put back into your account. But you’ll get a $13.55 credit on your monthly bill for 24 months, which adds up to $325 for the 32GB Pixel.

If the offer sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is. You’ll still have to pay Verizon the full price of the Pixel and any other termination fees that may apply. Furthermore, the Pixel promo can’t be combined with T-Mobile’s Carrier Freedom offer — that’s the one where T-Mobile pays you up to $650 “or more” per line to switch carriers.

An even better deal would be buying the Google Pixel directly from Google and activating it with whichever carrier you want. After all, the Pixels are compatible with all carriers, which is why T-Mobile can pull this particular trick.

Speaking of tricks, here’s a special new T-Mobile Halloween video starring your favorite CEO:

UPDATE: T-Mobile reached out to clarify its special Pixel promo. The offer isn’t just for Verizon customers who purchase the Pixel or Pixel XL. You can buy your Pixel phone directly from Google and bring it over to T-Mobile to take advantage of the deal.
