Never a brand to be caught flat-footed by trends, T-Mobile is jumping on the Pokemon Go bandwagon. And we don’t mean just a little bit. As part of their #GetThanked program that gives T-Mobile users freebies every Tuesday, the “Uncarrier” is handing over a full year of high-speed data for Pokemon Go.
All you have to do to snag this deal is to open up your T-Mobile Tuesdays app this coming Tuesday. If you make sure you don’t miss it, then you’ll have 12 months of guilt free Pokemon hunting in the data department.
But that’s not all that’s coming to T-Mobile users next week. They’ll also be getting $15 worth of free Lyft rides (ostensibly to get to PokeStops), a free Wendy’s Frosty to cool you down after walking through all that tall grass in the summer heat, and 50 percent off select accessories from T-Mobile stores including portable power banks, which many PokeFans are quickly learning are a necessity for Pokemon Go’s high-intensity battery suckage.
Furthermore, as per the company’s promise to enter users into a weekly raffle, 250 people will get picked to win $100 worth of PokeCoins (that’s a lot of egg incubators) and 5 “epic” winners will get an expenses-paid Pokemon Go hunting trip to wherever they want in the US for themselves and a friend.
