T-Mobile has been making it extremely hard for other carriers to compete, at least in terms of value. Their numbers continue to increase and they are now officially the 3rd largest carrier in the USA. They have accomplished this by re-writing the rules and offering deals never seen before in America’s mobile industry. This includes free roaming, unlimited streaming, JUMP upgrades and more.
Now we are getting ready for the Uncarrier 11 announcement, which is to take place this Monday, June 6th. We had no idea what the announcement would be all about, but now Venture Beat’s insider is giving us some details on what John Legere and his crew are getting ready to announce.
It is said Magenta will be giving postpaid subscribers the opportunity to “Stock Up” on actual T-Mobile shares. Each subscriber will get the chance to gain 100 shares, which are currently evaluated at $43.73 each. The rumor says there will be two ways to earn T-Mobile shares.
All current subscribers can download the T-Mobile Tuedays app before June 21st to get a single share of stock. You will need to sign up for Loyal3, a service that offers free stock investing help.
After that, you can earn up to 99 more shares in a year. All you have to do is refer people to join T-Mobile. They will have to keep their account active for at least 15 days, though. T-Mobile doesn’t want to risk giving you shares and then having your referred users cancel their service (return window).
Also, the source claims those who have been with T-Mobile for 5+ years will get 2 shares per referred customer.
Ready to “Stock Up”? Of course, we should still take it all with a grain of salt. Nothing is official until it is, and we only have to wait until this Monday to learn all the details.
