If you’re a college student or if you’re the parent of a college student, you know how important smart phones and tablets are. My oldest daughter is in college and lives 8 hours away from home. She would be seriously lost without her smartphone. I mean that both literally and metaphorically. She relies heavily on her GPS, but it’s also a lifeline to communicating with her friends at home.
If I’m honest, I’d be lost if I couldn’t easily communicate with her (and by communicate, I mean share random pug pictures back and forth on a daily basis)!
Yeah…we’re cool like that! Lots of deep conversations! 🙂
With the rising cost of college tuition, it may seem like a smartphone or tablet is an unnecessary extravagance when you’re budgeting. But in all honesty, they’re almost a necessity. From taking notes in class to using the GPS for directions to wherever they’re heading, a smartphone is an asset! And let’s not forget about those all important texts and calls to mom and dad!
Right now T-Mobile is hooking up college students and educators with some seriously awesome deals! Here’s the scoop:
T-Mobile is offering $48 off smartphones and tablets to U.S. college students and U.S. college/K-12 staff. The discount applies to their most popular devices, excluding those below $100. In order to receive the discount, you will need to be validated as a student or an employee.
T-Mobile also offers great deals on their call, text, and data plans. Check out the $50/month plan! You get unlimited talk, text, and data while on their network in the U.S., plus in Mexico and Canada. Plus you get up to 1GB of 4G LTE data (Speeds reduced after 1GB)! Also, if you have a student who loves to stream music, you’ll be thrilled with this part of the plan. T-Mobile offers Music Freedom™ which gives you unlimited music streaming on their network from top services such as Pandora and iHeart Radio without using your data. I listen to Pandora constantly so I think this is an awesome feature!
