T-Mobile Tuesdays Offers $15 Lyft Ride Next Week Instead of Free Pizza

t-mobile-tuesdays
When T-Mobile rolled out their rewards app called T-Mobile Tuesdays at the Un-Carrier 11 event, they announced that their customers would be getting freebies every week such as a movie rental, Wendy's Frosty, and Domino's pizza. Just after a couple of weeks since the announcement was made, it looks like T-Mobile is pulling the plug on one of its freebie partners.

Responding to the overwhelming amount of people who were unable to get their free pizza from Domino's, T-Mobile president and CEO John Legere sent out a tweet announcing that Domino's will no longer be part of its T-Mobile Tuesdays campaign as they were unable to keep up with the demand. This announcement means that for next week, they won't be giving away free pizza anymore.

Instead of the free pizza, T-Mobile announced that they will be offering a free Lyft ride next Tuesday, June 21st. The ride, worth up to $15, was originally the special promo included on this week's freebies from T-Mobile Tuesdays. As mentioned by Legere, the free ride may be availed until Thursday, June 23rd.
Hopefully, next Tuesday's run will be smoother compared to the last two. On the week it launched, T-Mobile Tuesdays app crashed and its servers were unable to keep up with the sheer volume of users. Meanwhile, last Tuesday's fiasco with the free Domino's pizza left a number of users frustrated that they were unable to get their share of the offer while some were able to get more than they should have. Users can only hope that the next series of freebies won't be as catastrophic as the first two. Apart from the free Lyft ride, they still have the free small Wendy's Frosty, VUDU movie rental, and $20 to spend at MLB.com to look forward to.

  1. "Lyft operates in 65 U.S. cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City..."

    Wow, that service is hardly anywhere. "Let's drive a few hundred miles to get some Uncarrier bennies. We might even find some coverage on the way."

    1. Even where Lyft operates, you're still stuck paying for the ride back.

      It's basically a scam.

      Lyft's just hoping people will fall for it.

      The only people who'd get value out of this are those who're already heavy Lyft users.

      Likewise, the rest of the goodies are meant to bait customers into splurging on burgers, rentals and sports collectibles if they aren't already.

      For those that already do, it's just a drop in the bucket.

    2. "It's basically a scam."
      Yes, giving free stuff is always a scam. Illegal. You should never take free stuff. They are just out to screw you. Pay for all your stuff, even stuff that you can get free!

    1. Amazon prices aren't exactly competitive.

      Best Buy credit would be a lot more valuable.

    2. Best Buy, the home of $20 USB cables and $30 TPU phone shells, is competitive with Amazon? You've got to be kidding.

      Best Buy only beats Amazon with sale prices on a few loss leaders, Amazon is very competitive on everything.
