As expected, T-Mobile has announced that it plans to begin offering accessories under its equipment installment plan. The program, which initially launched last year, allows customers to purchase mobile devices [and now accessories] for $0 and small monthly payments spread out over two years.
The plan does not require a downpayment for qualified customers, and applies to all accessories priced between $69 and $250. Customers must be a T-Mobile subscriber, with a Simple Choice plan, and if the service is ever terminated, they’ll be required to pay the remaining monthly payments in full…
Here’s more from T-Mobile’s press release:
Easier Than Ever to Get Accessories
Our Un-carrier commitment to choice extends beyond phones and tablets to the accessories that make them more personal. And, starting Sunday July 20th, we’re making it easier than ever to get those accessories by extending T-Mobile’s pioneering EIP (equipment installment plan) to nearly all accessories—starting with those as low as $69 and up to $250.
This means you and your family could walk out the door not only with new smartphones and tablets but also with your choice of the latest audio and mobile accessories—all for $0 down and 24 monthly payments with a Simple Choice plan. For example, you could pick up the state-of-the-art LG Tone Pro hands-free headset for $0 down and just $2.91 a month for 24 months with absolutely zero interest. You can find more information about T-Mobile’s new EIP payment option for accessories at your nearest participating T-Mobile store.
T-Mobile stores carry a number of accessories, including Samsung’s Gear Fit fitness tracker, Beats By Dre headphones, and Jawbone’s line of Jambox bluetooth speakers. The company also recently announced a back-to-school promotion that includes a free $100 gift card with purchase of an iPhone and iPad.
Again, T-Mobile will begin offering payment plans on accessories on Sunday, July 20th.
