You and yours have put up with your cracked, battery-draining, call-dropping, barely-counts-as-a-phone smartphones for too long, and now, you can rectify the situation. All for half off. On Wednesday, T-Mobile launched its Half-Off Smartphone Event, which allows both new and existing T-Mobile Simple Choice customers to buy all Samsung, LG, and other smartphones for 50 percent off when they buy another device from the same manufacturer. Of course, as with all these promotions, the half-off phone will have to be of equal or lesser value, but it’s still a great deal if you’re looking to replace your whole family’s phones.

The current promotion applies to a number of popular models, including Samsung’s Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Note5; LG’s G4 and V10; and others. It’s worth noting, of course, that part of the discounts may be strategically timed to precede the rumored launch of the newest Samsung Galaxy S and LG G phones, which are currently thought to appear in March.

But even if a newer model comes out soon, you can still get a new phone now for half the cost. As T-Mobile notes in its press release regarding their big event, customers could end up paying just $12.08 a month for their second 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6, which translates to almost $290 in total savings over the course of two years. Similarly, you could pay just $12.50 a month for your second LGV10, representing $300 in savings over a two year period. Up to six smartphones can be purchased at the 50 percent discount, though why you’d ever need to buy a total of 12 phones is beyond me.

T-Mobile’s coverage has certainly improved over the course of the last 12 months, adding nearly one million square miles of new LTE coverage in 2015. And because the cellphone company will pay your current carriers’ early termination fees and cover the balance of your old phone up to $650, now feels like as good a time as ever to make the switch.
