T-Mobile offers up one free year of Hulu for Verizon customers looking to switch carriers

It’s that time of the year when everyone is in the gift-giving spirit, and T-Mobile is no exception. The Un-carrier kicked off its Unwrapped promotion recently to entice customers on competing carriers to switch to T-Mobile. Gifts were already handed out to AT&T and Sprint customers, and now it’s time for Verizon customers to get a little love.

Verizon customers willing to switch to T-Mobile will get one year of Hulu with limited commercials for free. The carrier will give you a $100 gift code that will more than cover the $8 per month cost for the limited commercials plan. However, if you would like to step up to the commercial free package, you can still use your code for that subscription as well. It just won’t cover the cost for the entire year since that plan costs $12 per month.

What makes this deal even sweeter is the fact that you will get unlimited LTE streaming of Hulu through T-Mobile’s Binge On. Binge On lets Simple Choice customers stream 24 video services via LTE without it counting towards their monthly data allotment. Other than Hulu, T-Mobile customers can also stream the likes of Netflix HBO Go, and more without the data counting towards their caps.

In addition to the Hulu deal, T-Mobile is offering up to 50 percent off of any accessory available in-store to Verizon customers willing to switch carriers. We’re not just talking about cases folks, this can be used for the more expensive stuff like smartwatches and Bluetooth speakers. You could grab the Fitbit Charge for only $75 ($75 savings) or even the JBL Flip Bluetooth speaker for only $50, after a $50 savings. Even the Apple Watch is in play, but you won’t be able to get the full discount. T-Mobile is limiting the deal to $250 or a savings of $125, but you can still apply the $125 to purchases greater than $250. The only caveat is that you must finance your accessory purchase.

Verizon customers can take part of this Unwrapped deal from December 11 through December 17.

Switching carriers isn’t always easy when you have termination fees and/or a balance due. If you’re in that situation, you can always take advantage of T-Mobile’s Carrier Freedom deal in which the Un-carrier will provide up to $650 per line to cover those costs when you switch carriers.

This is the fourth part of the Unwrapped promotion. T-Mobile kicked-off the gift-giving season by offering three months of unlimited LTE to its own customers. Then the carrier gave Sprint customers $200 per line for switching carriers, and followed it up with a free memory upgrade on the iPhone 6S along with 50 percent off of an accessory for AT&T customers willing to make the switch. AT&T customers still have until December 13 to get in on that deal.
