Not what it used to be... 😞
I won’t rehash in detail what numerous others have said, but it’s a shame T-Mobile has reduced their Tuesdays app to what it is now...little more than a coupon app for a couple of dollar discounts or perhaps a free movie rental. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the freebie offers as much as anyone even if I’m not going to get a donut. What is missing is the somewhat entertaining mini games and at least a chance to win some real prizes via interactivity with the app. This was given just for being a T-Mobile customer. It was T-Mo’s way of saying “thanks” and just the opportunity of giveaways along with the little freebies was novel and another first by T-Mo. Unfortunately, that’s now gone and the chance of winning something requires your participation in their marketing via your personal social channels. That’s not saying thanks for being a customer; it’s thanks for helping us with publicity...something all together different. That’s fine to offer, but don’t replace one with the other or the original intent is completely lost. I also appreciate T-Mo’s Kickback per line for lower data usage and paying for Netflix, things also novel in the industry now being copied by others. T-Mo: please bring back the games and opportunities for all your customers to win without asking more marketing. Give people an extra chance to play if they help market, but don’t restrict it only to those who are willing. Remember your roots!
Free stuff is great...
Just an FYI for anyone looking at this for relevant, recent information, in the App Store this app shows an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars. In the month of August 2020, there were 81 total reviews written for the app, and the average of those written reviews is 2.01 out of 5 stars. That might get you an indication of real user experience.
I have had this app for about 2 months now, and although free stuff in general is a good thing, as mentioned before, some of the giveaways are useful, some aren’t really. New things are presented every week, and every week there’s an issue with one of the giveaways. One week it was food at Popeyes, only you had to order online, and to stop people from getting free food, individual Popeyes franchise owners turned off online ordering and many refused to honor the deal. I’ve run into issues and errors playing the games that are offered 4 of the 8 weeks I have had the app. Much of the “giveaways” that are offered are just standardized discounts for retail goods. Some are just an advertisement for travel booking companies (there’s no real offer to redeem, it’s just “save up to 40% on hotels by booking with...” from what I have heard, this used to be a really great feature to being a t-mobile customer. I haven’t gotten anything really beneficial out of it outside of a couple redbox 1 night rentals.
Nothing good is offered anymore
When the app first released the items they offered every Tuesday were awesome enough to keep me excited for next Tuesday when the next bout of stuff would come. Now, as one reviewer said, it’s now nothing more than a t-mobile exclusive coupon app (which gives you about as much “free”, useful stuff as any other free, coupon app). The best thing they may have on there now is maybe a free movie from a random movie company. It’s nice when it’s consistent, if it gave consistent free movie rentals from a single provider, I might actually try and sign up, but it is not so currently. Today, I finally deleted the app after having downloaded it the day it was released. I remember when there used to be a free Wendy’s frosty every week. That was awesome. Now, they may have something awesome gets rolled out over two tuesdays (meaning, if you didn’t get it one Tuesday, then you should get it the other Tuesday), I would open the app on both those days and never receive anything. I have tried those staggered release freebies but never seem to be awarded one. T-mobile, you need to evaluate what made t-mobile Tuesday’s so awesome when it launched and compare it to now and fix it. If you do fix it, let us know, but don’t say you fixed it if you didn’t actually fix it.
Used to be really great...
When we first joined t mobile, we were very impressed that they offered the freebies as a thanks for being a customer. However, after only a few months of actual good offers, they switched what they were offering, and now it’s usually either junk, or token discounts off of things we would never use or buy anyway. I was very disappointed that they changed it, because we added my husband on and talked several people into switching to T-Mobile because of this “going the extra mile” mentality that we thought the company had. We’re not on social media, so can now no longer participate in their games, since now the only way to do that is to allow them advertising via your media pages, and the things like $4 atom movie tickets are only good for the movie of T-Mobile’s choice, not mine, and the ones they choose aren’t ones I’d go see, even for four dollars. Why not give the customer the option to choose their own movie?? If a $4 movie ticket is being offered, what difference does it make which movie we choose? Anyway, the service has gotten so poor that half the time we don’t even bother to check it anymore. When we do, it’s a quick scroll down to realize nothing useful is being offered and we can’t participate in the games without social media, so there’s nothing unique anymore about being a T-Mobile customer.
Improvement would be appreciated!
I've always loved TMobile Tuesdays. Some of the things are useful, some aren't. But what was always nice was the physical items, like the beanie, the pencil case, the 2019 glasses. Unfortunately, as of 2019, those don't seem to be a thing anymore. My biggest issue with this is the fact that the movie deals don't work at my theatre, my only Dunkin is about 30 minutes away, I don't have a Shell gas station, and I don't have a Panera. This means those physical items were the only thing I really got every month, and I always looked forward to them. I switched from Verizon about 6 months ago, and as God awful as VZW is, they offered a section of "Local Deals". I'm sure it was probably just taken from Groupon or something, but it was always nice. I was always able to find a local deal at a small business around me. PLEASE add this to the app. Please. T-Mobile, you listen to your customers, so please try to add more things for people who may not have a Dunkin or a Panera, and please bring back the physical T-MOBILE branded items.
It’s free, but...
By Lord TOM1
Let me start off by saying I used to love this app. There used to be great prizes, and spinning the wheel or whatever else was exciting. Even the small prizes like one free donut were good. Now that has all gone downhill. It’s great they’re still giving out free stuff, but if the purpose is to reward and entertain loyal customers, this app has become a bust. The minigames are gone, replaced by having to tweet things to enter a giveaway instead. Fun, free prizes are gone, replaced by discounts or BOGO offers. It used to feel like T-Mobile was seeking out the best sponsors to do the best giveaways they could. Now it feels like companies are using this app to get us to spend money with them. Despite my 1-Star review, I’m sure for some people this is a great app. I think that it should continue to exist and function, even in its current state. That being said, I get the feeling many people are disappointed in the turn this app took (myself included) and I wish it would go back to the way it was. I recommend everyone try this app out, maybe you’ll be one of the people who love it. However, if you’re disappointed by the “prizes” like me, just uninstall, it’s not even worth the storage space on your phone.
Thank you for the opportunity for various discounts and promotions. Although, many I am unable to get. For I start to work early and get out late. Discount items at the T-Mobile stores or givaways, I never get the opportunity to take advantage of. Because stores always run out by the time I get out. And if I call a store to see if I can get an exception, they always say it has to be for customers that come in. So, I settle for the gas, movie and other basic discounts which are still helpful.
T-Mobile, should give long hour workers a chance of using their phone to lock in an item at the store. By texting a confirmation lock item at a store and that will give the worker a chance to pick up the item at the store at their leisure.
Thank you T-Mobile
Not a great rewards program
Super unhappy with this app!! I was very excited when I first got my service to have this feature along with it but it is very much of the same things every single week. A coupon for money off of a hotel is nice but very few companies participate so you essentially have to give up a quality room if you want $50 off of a night & there are only so many vacations you can take there should be something besides money off of a room every single week!!! Coupons for food movie rental items expire in 2-3 days which is super inconvenient, I have lost a lot of coupons because I can not get to the company in question in that two day time frame to use it. Not cool at all
TMobile Tuesday is at it again!! Yesterday (Tuesday May 22) I redeemed a coupon for bogo Ocean Spray juice bottles. Went to only participating store (7-11) to redeem and coupon said expired or use limit reached. I have not used the coupon. If you can not provide the products to every TMobile user you should not offer themselves the same coupon!!!!!! At this point there should be an option for zero stars for wasting people’s time.
T-Mobile Tuesday Deals
By working cook
We LOVE T-Mobile Tuesday!
Maybe the offers can be based on locations or regions. We live in Los Angeles County and a lot of the deals are not applicable. For example pretzels, the closest vendor did not accept the deal, same for the Carls specials and when we found one that did, they only accepted it on the Tuesday (only one day) and between 3-5 even if the deal lasted for a week. Same for Kroegers. They've closed the Ralphs. ADunkin Donuts finally opened 8 miles from us so now we will use the offer if we are going to be in the area.
We love the free t-mobile items but so do others. We tried to get the beanie but we were out of town andby the time we got to the closest store, they were out. So if you work, you need to go during your break or lunchtime because by the end of day, they are out!
Overall, we love T-mobile Tuesday and we remind our friends especially when it is something we think they will enjoy. Great job by the team who puts this together!
I haven’t won... ever
I know a ton of people who love T-Mobile Tuesday’s because they’ve won a variety of things. But I haven’t. Not once. My friends win over and over and I get nothing. I have to wonder if it’s location tracking or employment analyzing. For instance, my friend who’s won the most works for a major entertainment company and so, T-Mobile maybe tracking this, looking at her location and employment and believe she has a ton of social media followers and a large social media influence. Thus, she wins more. Meanwhile little ol’ me, just being a mere librarian, probably has very little. Jokes on them though, because I run a major blog, have a ton of followers and constantly pay to promote my posts, especially if its to put a company on blast or tell them how great they’re doing. T-Mobile Tuesday’s are cool because some of the stuff is free, and that’s just neat. But I would love to win sometime. C’est la vie!
