T-Mobile and MetroPCS celebrate Memorial Day weekend with a slew of deals and devices

Memorial Day weekend is almost upon us, which means T-Mobile and MetroPCS have a slew of deals and devices to offer both new and existing customers.

The highlight of these deals is the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, which now cost the same as their respective 32GB versions. Through the promotion, you save $80, bringing the prices of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge down to $670 and $780, respectively. If you opt to pay for either handset on a monthly basis, you’ll pay nothing upfront and pay $28.33 and $32.49 for the 64GB Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, respectively.

If you don’t need that much storage and are perfectly content with 32GB, however, T-Mobile will give you a $50 Visa prepaid gift card when you buy either the 32GB Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge. Either way, you’ll have from May 23 through May 25 to take advantage of these deals.

For those whose wallets aren’t so heavy, however, T-Mobile announced it is now selling the LG G Stylo and the LG Leon LTE. You can nab the Stylo for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $12.08, or simply buy the phone outright for $290. Meanwhile, the Leon LTE will also go for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $6.24, with its outright cost being a much more manageable $149.76. More specifically, as originally revealed by an internal memo, the Leon LTE will be free for prepaid customers after promotional rebates.

Not to be left out, MetroPCS will offer the Leon LTE starting May 22 for $50, while the Stylo will be available on June 1 for $200. In addition, MetroPCS is kicking off two promotions today, the first of which offers a free phone or $50 off a pricier handset, if you switch from Virgin Mobile, Boost Mobile, or another prepaid competitor. Finally, the second promotion involves offering four lines of unlimited talk, text, and 2GB of 4G LTE data for $100 per month.

All in all, these seem like solid promotions, but some of them do have expiration dates, so you might want to take advantage of the deals sooner rather than later.
