Want a Galaxy S6 for free? T-Mobile will lease you one if you trade in your old phone

t mobile samsung galaxy s6 and tablet deal car guy
T-Mobile has an incredible deal for anyone who wants to turn in their old smartphone for the Samsung Galaxy S6. From October 22 to October 25, you can get a 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6 with the Uncarrier’s Jump! On Demand program for $0 down and $0 per month — if you trade in the right device. You’ll also get a free Galaxy Tab A, though you’ll have to pay for the data.

The eligible devices are very limited, and most of them are recently released phones, so if you have a phone that’s more than two years old, this deal won’t benefit you at all. However, anyone who has buyer’s remorse over their recent phone purchase can trade in the following devices to get the deal on the 32GB Galaxy S6: iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.

Once October 26 arrives, T-Mobile will up the price of the Galaxy S6 to $10 per month, which is still quite cheap.

If the device you want to trade in is a bit older, you may be able to snag the Uncarrier’s $0 down and $15 per month payment deal for the Galaxy S6. You’ll have to trade in an iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One M8, HTC One M9, LG G3, or LG G4.  It may not be as good as $0 a month, but it is better than the standard $24 fee you’d pay with no trade-in.

As far as the free tablet goes, it’s part of the Uncarrier’s Tablet On Us offer. You can also get one if you choose to buy a Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 5, or Galaxy Note Edge instead. T-Mobile stated that anyone who bought one of these new phones on or after October 14 can now get the tablet, too.

The deal ends on October 25, and is contingent upon continued payments for T-Mobile service with a Simple Choice plan. If you cancel your service, you’ll have to cough up the full price of the phone. All the details and the deal itself are present on T-Mobile’s website here.
