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!
Very occasional gift cards, but not many perks actually work for me
I found out about this app after T-Mobile took over Sprint, so I could now use it. There are occasional giveaways like $5,000 or trips, but most weeks that section is just showing old winners and there isn’t even a new sweepstakes to enter. Most of the weekly coupons like a free sandwich/ice cream/etc are for restaurants or stores that aren’t even in my area, so those are pointless for me. They always show 10¢ off each gallon of gas every week, but I discovered you have to download another app for Shell and make an account just to get that one. Once I got notified about a $3 Starbucks gift card, but apparently they were limited so I didn’t even get one even though I’m a T-Mobile customer. This time I got a notification for a $3 Target gift card, and I went on the app right at 2 EST when it said to get it, and the app was stuck on a white screen and kept saying it was updating and that I need to refresh, but eventually it worked I think and hopefully I’ll be able to redeem it tomorrow like it says, but who knows. I did give 3 stars because there are occasionally instant-win games and I got a $5 Apple gift card when I first got the app, and hopefully I’ll get this Target one too, but overall a lot of the perks aren’t even relevant for me.
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.
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.
Love my T- Mobile
I have had Verizon as my first cell phone carrier way back when there where bag phones. Having them for years I wanted an I phone i could not get one on Verizon. I stayed loyal and didn’t switch until my sister gave me my first iPhone then went to AT&T had them for three iPhones was being overcharged I thought so tried sprint horrible. So decided to go back to AT&T went back with them tried a Samsung four note junk I kept dropping calls AT&T was no help so I bought out my contract and went back to Verizon had them for a year and a half knew I was being overcharged and switch to T-Mobile over a year ago fantastic customer service I’ve never had a problem with my phone and they’re always there to help me so T-Mobile Tuesdays is a plus thank you.
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!
It’s just okay

This is a cool app...if you have any of the items they are giving away anywhere near you. For me, I get to use maybe one or two items once a year and that’s about it. Everything else is either no use to me or nowhere near me. You will see that most of the items are there over and over and over again. If you have a shell gas station or a Dunkin’ Donuts near you, you’re in luck. If you still print photos at Walgreen (who is still printing photos in the digital world,) you’re in luck. These two are in the app every week for years now.
I’ve had the app for a few years now and there has been little change, other than making it harder for you to actually redeem the items.
The one item that I absolutely love is the MLB video and audio subscription. Being a huge baseball fan this is the one item I use every year.
Give it a try, maybe you will have enter luck than anyone else I know that uses it.
