T-Mobile announced the goodies inside of next week’s T-Mobile Tuesday, and to nobody’s surprise, it has a lot to do with Pokémon GO. Next week, when you open up the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, the carrier will be gifting you with free high-speed data for use with Pokémon GO. This free data will be good for one year, so whenever you are out and about capturing Pokémon or taking over gyms, you won’t need to worry about your data usage.
I have been playing Pokemon GO for about a week now, and from what I can tell, the app does more harm to your smartphone’s battery than it does to your data plan. With a week down, I’ve got about 300MB+ of data used, which doesn’t seem like all that much to me, considering how much I have been playing. But hey, when something is popular and you want to get your brand involved, you jump on it.
In addition to the free data, T-Mobile is also providing free Lyft rides (up to $15), a free Wendy’s Frosty, as well as 50% off select accessories. These accessories include portable power packs (perfect for Pokémon GO playing), as well as replacement chargers.
Here’s what to expect once next Tuesday rolls around.
- Free, unlimited data on Pokémon Go, so it won’t touch your high-speed data—for a full year!
- Free Lyft rides up to $15 to get to a new PokéStop or Gym
- Free Wendy’s Frosty to fuel up for your hunting trip
- 50% off select accessories – including portable power packs and chargers at T-Mobile stores – so you can keep on playing for hours
Also, as written in the press release, “250 people will each win $100 in PokéCoins, and five people will win a Pokémon GO hunting trip anywhere in the U.S. for themselves and a guest!”
