T-Mobile is offering Pokemon Go perks including free data, cab rides, and sweet treats

Need more data to hunt down the more elusive pocket monsters in Niantic's smash hit? T-Mobile's got your back.


Sympathizing with the harsh reality that most Pokemon and integral locations like gyms and PokeStops don't always land within Wi-Fi zones, T-Mobile has launched a promotion to grant unlimited data and other goodies to Pokemon Go players (via GameSpot).

T-Mobile holds a promotion every week in an effort to keep customers happy and attract new ones. Next Tuesday, July 19, customers in the US can take advantage of assorted Pokémon Go offers including:

  •         Free and unlimited data for Pokemon Go through August 2017;
  •         Free Lyft rides up to $15, perfect when a gym or PokeStop is just a tad too far to ride the sneaker network;
  •         A free Frosty from Wendy's;
  •         Up to 50 percent off select accessories, including chargers and portable power packs, at T-Mobile stores.

You can claim the free offers on July 19, as well as on July 26, August 2, and August 9.

Whether you're a new customer or looking to renew your contract, taking advantage of this deal will enter you into a drawing to win $100 worth of Poke Coins, Pokemon Go's in-game currency. Up to 250 winners will be chosen to win coins; five others will receive a free Pokémon hunting trip anywhere in the United States, and a guest can tag along, too.

"New and existing T-Mobile customers can get free and unlimited high-speed data for all your Pokemon Go gaming in the U.S. – all the way through end of August 2017," according to the company's announcement. "They just need to download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app and claim the free gift. But hurry – this limited-time offer will be available to redeem starting next Tuesday, July 19th and available to redeem every T-Mobile Tuesday through Tuesday, August 9th. Everyone who’s eligible for T-Mobile Tuesdays is eligible for all this Pokémon fun."
