Plan Picks: $300 off the Pixel 3 XL and $200 free with Verizon

Google Pixel 3 XL Plan Picks

Plan Picks is your one-stop destination for the best carrier deals around. This week’s promotion could potentially let you walk away with a new phone as well as a $ 20 surplus overall.

Right now, Verizon is offering $ 300 off on either the Google Pixel 3 or 3 XL. On top of that, you can get a $ 200 Prepaid Mastercard and up to $ 450 in savings with a select trade-in handset.

Wait, a free Pixel 3 XL and $ 20?

Well, in a way, yes. A Pixel 3 XL retails for $ 930, so if you add up all the savings above (counting the Mastercard as money), you effectively get a free Pixel and $ 20. But you need to know the steps required.

First, you’ll need to add either the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL with monthly device payments to your cart. You’ll also need a line of service for the maximum savings.

The $ 300 is then credited to your account over 24 months. This indeed means you’ll redeem the money slowly, but it’s still some savings in the grand scheme of things.

If you switch to a Verizon Unlimited Plan, you’ll also receive a $ 200 Prepaid Mastercard within only eight weeks. That’s much faster.

Now, to get that extra $ 450 off on your Pixel, you’ll need to trade-in an eligible device. The list is surprisingly generous, ranging from the Galaxy S8 to the iPhone 7 and LG G7.

Is that everything?

Pretty much, but here are some finer details. If the phone you’re trading in is much older, then you’ll only get $ 300 off instead of $ 450. And if you’re upgrading as a Verizon customer, the maximum savings are $ 200 and $ 100 rather than $ 450 and $ 300 respectively.

Not too shabby right? To get the full picture on the Pixel 3 XL deal, including the full list of phones you can trade and info about acquiring your prepaid Mastercard, take the link below to Verizon. Be sure to check out the terms and conditions for yourself.

Buy a Galaxy on T-Mobile this Saturday and get one for free

If you buy one of the newer Galaxy devices on T-Mobile, the self-proclaimed Un-carrier is giving you a second one for free – this Saturday only.

If you’ve been thinking of buying a new Galaxy phone with T-Mobile, you may want to go ahead and do that this Saturday, August 6th. America’s fastest network will be offering a free Galaxy phone for those who purchase a qualifying Samsung Galaxy this Saturday only.

Dubbed the Saturday-Only Samsung Superphone Superdeal (gotta love some alliteration!), T-Mobile’s BOGOF deal covers the most beloved Galaxies from the recent years: Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, and Galaxy Note5.

As you may have noticed, the newest addition to the Galaxy family, the Galaxy Note7, is not on the list, so pre-ordering the iris-scanning phablet won’t get you a free smartphone sadly. However, the deal does include last year’s Note5 as well as Note7’s S-Pen-less siblings: the Galaxy S7 family.

Want all the fine prints? Well, here they are:

If you buy a qualifying Samsung Galaxy phone on T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), and you add a line of service, you get a second Galaxy phone of equal or lesser value for free. According to T-Mobile, customers will be credited on their monthly bill over the 24-month EIP term for the full amount of the second device after paying any down payment, which will also be credited.

The deal is available at T-Mobile stores in the US and online for US customers.

With the Galaxy Note7 launching on America’s third largest network soon, T-Mobile probably wants to boost sales of all the older Galaxy models. Considering all of the qualifying devices still boast top-notch specs and considering T-Mobile’s recent victory, the Super-deal is indeed quite… super.

What are your thoughts on T-Mobile’s latest deal? Let us know if you plan on buying a qualifying Galaxy device on T-Mobile this Saturday!

Show Press Release

Just when you thought Friday couldn’t get any better, T-Mobile has an out of this galaxy deal for you this weekend. Starting tomorrow on Sat., Aug. 6, for ONE DAY ONLY, buy a qualifying Samsung Superphone and get a second of equal or lesser value for FREE when you add a line! Here’s the lowdown:

Get a free Samsung Galaxy superphone when you buy a Samsung Galaxy superphone with T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), and add a line of service.

Customers will be credited on their monthly bill over the 24-month EIP term for the full amount of the 2nd eligible device of equal or lesser value, after paying any down payment (they’ll be credited for that, too!).

Qualifying devices: GS7, GS7 edge, GS6, GS6 edge, GS6 edge+, Note5

The one-day deal will be available at T-Mobile stores nationwide and online at T-Mobile.com <http://t-mobile.com> on August 6.

T-Mobile celebrating Friday the 13th by offering free LG G Pad F 8.0


Obviously, Friday the 13th is the best day to make a tablet purchase… right? We are not sure, but whether you are superstitious or not, you just can’t say not to a free tablet. T-Mobile is trying to turn this date’s fame around by offering a free LG G Pad F 8.0. But you should hurry, as this deal is only available this weekend!

The LG G Pad F 8.0 currently costs $ 239.76. Going by the price, you will likely assume this is a mid-range tablet; and you would be right. Its specs include an 8-inch 1280×800 display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, 5MP/2MP cameras and a 4,200 mAh battery. It’s not a stunning gadget, but it’s also not bad – especially for free!


Just keep in mind T-Mobile does have its conditions. You will have to put the tablet on a qualifying data plan of at least 1 GB. It could also be added to your current account for $ 10 a month. Aside from that, all you have to do is get the tablet on an installment plan and you will get a prepaid MasterCard for the full amount 8 weeks after the purchase.

Are you thinking of signing up? Don’t forget, this offer is only available this weekend! And you should act fast, as T-Mobile does warn quantities are limited, both in stores and online.

Have any of you used this tablet? Would you recommend it to your fellow Android lovers?

Oculus making up for Rift delays with free shipping


It was March 28th when customers would begin to see their Oculus Rift VR headsets shipping, but delays have managed to decelerate the process. Buyers were not getting shipment updates days after units should have started going out. Now Oculus is finally standing up and telling us what’s going on.

Though many users have already gotten their $ 599 headsets, an “unexpected component shortage” is leaving others empty-handed. Here is what Oculus has to say in an email sent to customers:

We’ve been working through an unexpected component shortage, and unfortuantely, that issue has impacted the original shipping estimates for some early customers. We’re working hard to get up-to-date ship windows, and you should expect to see your order status updated on oculus.com by Tuesday, April 12th.

Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe has also taken it to Twitter to give us a quick update on the matter:

Also read:

There you have it, guys. Your order status should be updated by April 12th. Hopefully the other orders won’t take too long to ship after that. Meanwhile, you can rest assured that Oculus will be waiving shipping fees on all orders “placed to-date”. You know, for your the trouble you had to go through. At least there’s that!

How many of you have already gotten your Oculus Rift devices? Are any of you still waiting?

Get a free movie rental from Google to celebrate Chromecast’s second birthday

Chromecast 2nd Bday (1)

Want to escape the heat this weekend? If you’re looking for something to do indoors, Google has a small offer that may be worth your while. To celebrate the Chromecast’s 2nd birthday, Google is giving out one free movie rental to all owners of the media streaming device from now until December 31st, 2015.

To redeem your free movie rental, first you’ll need to make sure your Chromecast is set up and connected to your Wi-Fi network. Then, open up your Chrome browser on your computer, head over to this link, then click on the offer you’d like to redeem. Once you select your streaming device from the list, you can then head to the Google Play Store to claim your free rental.

It should be noted that Google does have some restrictions in place for the number of free movie rentals you claim on your Google account. So, depending on how many offers you’ve already claimed, you might not be able to take advantage of this deal.

Don’t have a Chromecast? Right now, you can buy two Chromecasts from the Google Store and save $ 15 at checkout. This isn’t the cheapest we’ve ever seen the media streamer, but it’s a pretty nice deal, nonetheless.

Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops comes to Android, free to download


I spent countless hours playing the first iteration of Tiny Troopers, and now I know exactly what I will be doing during my days off. Popular developer Chillingo has released a successor to the mentioned title through the Google Play Store. The new game goes by the name of Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops and it’s free to download, so you might as well check it out.

Let’s tell you a bit about the game before you rush over to the Play Store and download it, though. In Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops you command a troop of soldiers through a series of missions. The user command them and tell them where to go, who to attack and how to do so. It’s a simple concept, but the game does have an extensive system of upgrades, levels and experience, similar to an RPG game.

For example, one can level up soldiers’ ranks, customize their uniforms, upgrade their rifles and strengthen their body armors. This game also includes special forces, which allow you to recruit medics, machine gunners, flamers and more. Not enough fun? Then jump on a humvee and blaze through your enemies with a powerful 0.50 caliber automatic gun.

It’s a fun game, packed with many hours of intense battles and tactical planning. It’s especially exciting that Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops is free of charge to download from the Google Play Store. The developer does need to make money somehow, but they follow the in-app purchase strategy, which has become very popular the past years.


Don’t let the in-app purchases scare you away, though. These are mostly to advance in the game without having to go through much hassle. You can still play the game to its fullest without spending any of your precious cash.

So, who is downloading this game? I know I am!

Monument Valley is Amazon’s free app of the day

Monument Valley is a pillar of brilliance. The game, while admittedly on the short side, is one of the most refreshing and creative apps ever released on a mobile platform. Conjuring a hybrid of Esher and a random Gotye music video, the adventure sees the player assisting a mysterious girl as she tries to restore her world.

The game is an absolute masterpiece, and is now… FREE! On Amazon, least. For a limited time only, the Amazon Appstore has slashed the $ 3.99 price tag to absolutely nothing. This is an offer you literally can’t afford to pass up, and will whet your whistle for the recently released expansion pack currently available on iOS (Android deployment pending).

Do yourself a favor and get this one (for free) while you can!
