Verizon exclusive? Ha! After CEO John Legere teased some sort of Pixel offer yesterday, T-Mobile has taken the wraps off an offer for the new Google Pixel; if you bring a Pixel to T-Mo, you can get $325 in bill credits back. If you've been on the fence about either T-Mobile or the Pixel, this may sway your decision.
So here's the deal: buy a Pixel, sign up for a T-Mobile plan (post-paid only), show proof of purchase through T-Mo's promo site, and voila! You'll receive $13.55 in bill credit every month, which over two years, will add up to $325.20. Seems simple enough, right?
Well, not really. Since T-Mobile requires proof of purchase from the Google Store or other retailers, people who buy their Pixels second-hand may experience some trouble signing up. In addition, since the Bellevue-based carrier is only offering this promo with its controversial ONE "unlimited" plan, you'll have to deal with that. That being said, since T-Mobile doesn't sell the Pixel themselves, it can't tie the discount to a device payment plan (like they did with their recent iPhone trade-in promo).

All things considered, I'd say this is only a solid deal for those of you who were already considering switching to T-Mobile (despite their terrible new plans) and were on the fence about purchasing the Pixel. For everyone else, waiting for a Pixel discount is probably a wiser choice.
