The Pokemon GO craze has been well documented across the internet. It’s an unprecedented mobile phenomenon. To play the game you have to leave your house, which means leaving the confines of your WiFi network. The game doesn’t use a ton of data, but if you’re on a tight plan it can be more than you’d like.
T-Mobile will be making Pokemon GO the latest app with free data. Starting next Tuesday, the data you use while playing Pokemon GO won’t count toward your bill. This is the same thing T-Mobile has been doing for popular streaming services like Netflix and Spotify. The promotion will last for a full year, which is plenty of time to catch them all.
On top of free data, T-Mobile is offering a few more goodies for Pokemon GO players on Tuesday. Free Lyft rides (up to $15) to get to Pokestops and Gyms. Free Frosty’s to “fuel up for your hunting trip.” 50% off select accessories, including power packs and chargers, from T-Mobile stores. Plus, 250 people will win $100 in Pokecoins and 5 people will win Pokemon hunting trips to anywhere in the U.S.

“This is what T-Mobile Tuesday is all about – thanking customers with hot, new, totally free gifts every week, and right now, nothing is hotter than Pokémon Go!” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “With the carriers’ shared data schemes, players could easily burn up the family’s data bucket – and then, hello, overages! At T-Mobile, we’re unleashing Pokémon Go so our customers can play free for a year. It’s gonna be a fantastic T-Mobile Tuesday!”
Since Pokémon Go launched July 6th, the mobile game has raced past the likes of Facebook and Twitter on the app charts, already attracting a record-setting 21 million daily users in the U.S. alone. The groundbreaking AR game has surged to the No.1 free game and No.1 grossing game in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store in record-breaking time, qualifying Pokémon Go as a certifiable global phenomenon.
New and existing T-Mobile customers can get free and unlimited high-speed data for all your Pokémon Go gaming in the U.S. – all the way through end of August 2017. They just need to download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app and claim the free gift. But hurry – this limited-time offer will be available to redeem starting next Tuesday, July 19th and available to redeem every T-Mobile Tuesday through Tuesday, August 9th. Everyone who’s eligible for T-Mobile Tuesdays is eligible for all this Pokémon fun.
Last month, T-Mobile unveiled its 11th iconic Un-carrier move – #GetThanked – a set of history-making initiatives dedicated exclusively to saying “thank you” to customers, offering T-Mobile customers ownership in the company, free stuff every week, and free in- flight smartphone Wi-Fi on Gogo equipped U.S. flights. With T-Mobile Tuesdays, customers can count on getting thanked each week with free recurring gifts, a surprise free gift from a new partner and a chance to win something epic. After launch, the T-Mobile Tuesdays app immediately jumped to No.1 on the App Store. And, millions of T-Mobile customers have already been thanked with free stuff.
The new offers will be visible in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app on iOS and Android and at www.t-mobiletuesdays.com starting tomorrow, so customers can get ready for next Tuesday. Previously, the T-Mobile Tuesdays app featured partner Gilt and a focus on fashion for this coming week, but don’t worry, t-shirts and fashion will be coming back to T-Mobile Tuesday soon.
