T-Mobile is no stranger to holding promotions to lure customers on over to their network, or to bring their current customers back for another line of service. This weekend, T-Mobile is giving out the LG G Pad F 8.0 for free, essentially. T-Mobile is giving it to you for free after mail-in rebates and a prepaid card. What this means is that you will not be walking out of your local T-Mobile store this weekend with a free tablet. But in a few months, you’ll get that money back. This is typically how the “free tablet” promotions run though.
This promotion runs today and ends on Sunday, May 15th. So if you’re interested in picking up a new tablet, or had your eye on the LG G Pad F 8.0, this is definitely the time to check it out. To be eligible for the promotion, you will need to add the tablet to your account, which starts at $10/month. That gets you 200MB of data for free (slowed to 2G speeds afterwards), of course you can add more data too and use Data Stash. Don’t forget that with Binge On, you get YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and many other services that don’t count against your data. The same goes with music services like Pandora and Spotify that are part of their Music Freedom service.
The LG G Pad F 8.0 has an 8-inch display, powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, Android 5.0 and a 5MP camera around back for taking pictures and video. There is also 16GB of internal storage along with a micro SD card slot. And let’s not forget that the LG G Pad F 8.0 also has a built-in stylus. So if you’ve been wanting a tablet with a stylus – and one that has a place to keep the stylus – this tablet from LG is definitely worth checking out. The full retail price for this tablet is $239.76, or you could pick it up for $0 down and $9.99 per month for 24 months. You will need to put this on EIP to get the credit from T-Mobile. Which can take up to 6 to 8 weeks to be fully processed.
