T-Mobile Offers Verizon Customers Free Year of Hulu to Switch

Hulu-iconT-Mobile has announced a fourth “Un-carrier Unwrapped” holiday promotion that offers Verizon customers 12 months of Hulu’s Limited Commercials plan for free, a value of $7.99 per month or $96 annually.

The offer is valid for Verizon customers that switch any phone number to a T-Mobile Simple Choice postpaid plan between December 11 and December 17.

Verizon customers who switch to T-Mobile will receive a text message with a $100 Hulu subscription gift code, enough to pay for more than 12 months of Hulu’s Limited Commercials plan.

Verizon customers can combine the offer with T-Mobile’s Carrier Freedom promotion, which provides up to $650 towards a balance owing or to pay off early termination fees (ETFs) with an eligible device trade-in.

T-Mobile is also offering Verizon customers that switch up to half off its lineup of financed in-store accessories:

That could mean as much as a $125 discount on the hottest mobile gifts, like the latest smartwatches, UE Boom and JBL Bluetooth speakers, top-of-the-line headphones, Fitbit fitness trackers, Guitar Hero Live for iOS and more.

This limited time offer is part of T-Mobile’s monthlong “Un-carrier Unwrapped” holiday promotion that offered three months of free unlimited LTE data to Simple Choice customers, a $200 bill credit for Sprint customers and $200 off a 128GB iPhone 6s for AT&T customers.

Verizon Customers on Grandfathered Unlimited Data Plans Face $20 Price Increase

verizonlogoVerizon customers with grandfathered unlimited data plans, which the carrier stopped offering to new customers in 2011, face a $20 increase in their monthly bill starting November 15, according to CNET. The monthly cost of unlimited data will rise from $30 to $50 as a result.

The rate increase is yet another move by Verizon to encourage customers to move from unlimited data plans to tiered data plans. Less than 1% of Verizon customers still have an unlimited data plan, according to a company spokesperson, but those remaining few are often stubborn about switching.

Verizon customers with unlimited data plans are required to pay full retail price for smartphones, although grandfathered subscribers do qualify for the company’s monthly installment plan for new devices.

In the United States, Sprint and T-Mobile are the two largest nationwide carriers that continue to offer unlimited data plans. AT&T stopped offering unlimited data to new customers in 2010.
