If Black Friday means a new iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, or Google Pixel phone is in your sights, T-Mobile's range of trade-in discounts, new line offers, and plan perks should be right up your street. Read on to whet your appetite and plan your approach for T-Mobile Black Friday 2023.

What to Expect From T-Mobile Black Friday Deals in 2023

Last year's T-Mobile Black Friday deals dropped right as Thanksgiving week began. If this year follows suit, we could be seeing this year's T-Mobile Black Friday ad as early as November 20. Keep up to date with all Black Friday timings with our Black Friday hours page!

T-Mobile Black Friday 2023 should last well into Cyber Week and last year's deals stayed live until Wednesday, November 30, so expect a similar sale window this year. (That is, of course, for the deals that don't sell out.)

You'll reliably find great T-Mobile Black Friday deals on the latest iPhones, Samsung phones, smart watches, and more, but as you'll see, they will almost always require a trade-in or line activation. Last year's best offers saw the Samsung Galaxy S22+ and 22 Ultra phones discounted by up to 69% off. Other T-Mobile phone Black Friday highlights included:

  • Four unlimited lines for $100 per month (you can also add four iPhone 15 phones to this for free with eligible trade-ins)
  • Apple iPhone 14 Pro for free w/ trade-in
  • Samsung phones for free:
    • Samsung Galaxy S22 for free w/ new line or trade-in
    • Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 for free w/ new line
  • Discounts on smart watches:
    • Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Smartwatch for free w/ line activation
    • 50% off a 2nd-Gen. Apple Watch SE 40mm Smartwatch
  • Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go for free w/ new line

For Black Friday T-Mobile is expected to offer great deals on the Apple iPhone 15 line, Samsung Galaxy S23 line, and the new Apple Watch releases. At the time of writing, they were already offering deals like:

Apple iPhone 15 Pro free w/ trade-in on a Go5G Next plan

You get these savings in the form of up to $1,000 in bill credits, paid out over 24 months. Trading in a reasonably recent iPhone is your path to maximum savings, which is enough to get the iPhone 15 Pro 128GB model for free, or the larger models at a very significant discount.

Apple iPhone 13 for free w/ new account activation

Similar to the above deal, this comes in the form of 24 promo credits, but no trade-in is required. With any of these bill credit deals, canceling within the 24 month period may require you to pay the balance on the required finance.

iPhone 14 for free w/ qualifying plan and trade-in

Add a line on a qualifying Go5G Plus plan, and trade in an eligible device, and you'll get the iPhone 14 128GB for free. (Alternatively, you'll get up to $730 off the rest of the iPhone 14 line.)

Google Pixel 8 for free w/ line add or trade-in on a Go5G plan

This deal is when you add a line or trade-in a device on a Go5G Next or Go5G Plus plan and you begin to see a pattern to these phone savings.

The Go5G plans you'll require for most of these deals start from $90 per month, and a $35 activation fee will apply. They include unlimited premium data, a 1-screen Netflix subscription, and a 50GB high-speed mobile hotspot plan.

Besides the obvious convenience of shopping from your couch, it's far, far easier to get into the details of, and differences between, T-Mobile's various plans, discounts, and extras when you can tab back and forth between them on a screen. You'll also be better able to compare them against similar Black Friday deals from other providers like ATandT and Verizon, who are sure to have competitive offers.

Last year, we saw T-Mobile's Black Friday specials carry through to November 30, so you should expect the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals to stay much the same and although some deals will no doubt expire as they sell out.

T-Mobile doesn't normally outright price match, but it does offer a range of discounts and incentives for people looking to switch from another provider, including paying off what you owe another carrier for your phone via a prepaid MasterCard (up to $1,000 per device for up to five devices). While the offers do come with conditions regarding other stores' promotions, it's not specified whether or not they apply during Black Friday sales.

While there's no loyalty program to get outright discounts, T-Mobile plan-holders do get additional perks and savings.

Go5G Next or Go5G plans

Customers with these plans are eligible for subscription freebies including:

  • Apple TV+
  • Netflix Basic
  • MLB.TV Regular Season
  • Major League Soccer 2023 Season Pass
  • 4 months of Pandora Plus

T-Mobile Tuesdays

Every Tuesday, T-Mobile customers get access to a range of perks, including offers and deals from brands like MLB.tv, Dunkin', Redbox, Taco Bell, Atom Tickets, Live Nation, Shell, and more. These are free with most consumer and business monthly plans that include voice and data.

Not everything goes on sale, but you should be able to find a deal that satisfies in amongst the T-Mobile Black Friday specials, whether you're shopping for a new phone, a smartwatch, a speaker, or other accessories.

T-Mobile offers free 2-day shipping with an online activation or upgrade and this should hold true during T-Mobile Black Friday 2023.

Social Media

You can follow T-Mobile's social media for the last information on T-Mobile Thanksgiving deals and Black Friday offers. Check them out on X (always Twitter in our hearts, and also in our URL fields for now), Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

DealNews

We're always looking for T-Mobile deals to pass on to you, including comprehensive coverage of the best deals during the recent iPhone 15 launch. That'll be true as we look out for the best T-Mobile Black Friday specials this year. Keep an eye on our latest cell phone offers, and especially our Staff Picks page for the best of the best.

The obvious contenders to T-Mobile Black Friday deals are ATandT and Verizon. Verizon's Black Friday deals could start as early as November 16, while ATandT's are expected to start a day later on November 17.

You should also keep your eyes peeled for Black Friday specials direct from Apple, Samsung, and Google, as well as offers from other providers like Boost and Xfinity.

T-Mobile Black Friday specials aren't expected to change much across Thanksgiving week, so getting in as soon as the T-Mobile Black Friday ad drops is recommended, as stock limitations will be your greatest concern. That said, if you're waiting to see if other stores offer more attractive deals, you should have until around Wednesday the following week to take advantage of any T-Mobile phone Black Friday offers.
