T-Mobile chief executive John Legere is known for his colorful language. But after the mobile carrier's T-Mobile Tuesdays app failed to deliver the freebies Legere promised, customers probably dropped a few F-bombs of their own. PT, the T-Mobile Tuesdays app failed to hand out coupon codes for the Domino's pizza, Wendy's Frosty, and Vudu video rental that Legere promised a day ago as part of T-Mobile's Uncarrier 11 promotion. Some users, including PCWorld contributing writer Ed Oswald, reported that the app went right to a connection error page. T-Mobile also promised a free share of stock as part of its #getthanked promotion, but there was no mention of the "Stock Up" promo on the app page, either.
Starting tomorrow, every account holder with a voice plan will be able to claim a single share in the telecommunications company. New customers will also be eligible for a share. If you've been a T-Mobile customer for at least five years, you'll get two shares for every new customer you refer. Everyone else will get one share per referral. T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced the stock giveaway during a live-streamed event in New York City today.
T-Mobile US Inc. said on Monday it will give a share of the wireless company's stock to customers who hold a postpaid or monthly account for free to turn its customers into shareholders. T-Mobile, which dubs itself the "Un-carrier," said in a statement it will offer a "full share of T-Mobile US (TMUS) common stock to millions of existing and new customers." The plan called "Stock Up" is available to customers who hold a postpaid service plan, which are paid for on a monthly basis, and not prepaid customers. "This has never been done before," by a public company, chief executive John Legere said on a media call after the announcement. Legere has led the rollout of a series of consumer-friendly offers in the past three years, such as the free video streaming option "Binge On" and data rollover plans, some of which have been copied by rivals.
T-Mobile CEO, John Legere, thanked T-Mobile customers from the new Times Square T-Mobile store with three gifts in the form of free stuff on Tuesdays, free Gogo in-flight WiFi, and free company stock. A new app is available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store that provides T-Mobile customers with free stuff and the opportunity to win other prizes each week, on Tuesday. The first partnership revealed by Mr. Legere, that will be given away tomorrow, include a free 2-topping medium Dominos pizza, a free small Wendy's Frosty, and a free movie rental from Vudu. Each week the free stuff offered to customers may change, but there is no obligation required and you can even claim the free offerings without using the smartphone app by visiting and logging into the T-Mobile Tuesdays website. To claim your weekly Tuesday offers, make sure to make your claim between Tuesday starting at 5 am Eastern time and ending on Wednesday at 5 am Eastern.
