Get $25 Off on Select Phones + Free 6 Months of Republic Wireless Service from B&H

b&h-free-republic-wireless-25-off-phone
If you've been thinking about getting a new smartphone, you're in for some luck. B&H is currently running a couple of promotions for a limited time period. The promotion includes a discount on select smartphones and another offer where you can get six months of service from Republic Wireless for free. Interested in either of these offers? Then read on!


Discount on Smartphones


As mentioned, the first promotion B&H has in store today is a discount on select devices. For a limited time, B&H is offering $25 off on specially marked devices. If you visit their website, you can look to see if the device you are interested in is available under the promotion. Once there is a button with a label "Clip Coupon - Save $25.00" available under it, then that means that the discount is applicable to the phone. You'll see the discount applied on your cart.

As discovered by Slickdeals, the available phones under this promotion include the following options:

  • Moto E4 XT1768
  • Moto E4 Plus XT1775
  • Moto G4 XT1625
  • Moto G4 Play XT1607
  • Moto G4 Plus XT1644
  • Moto G5 Plus XT1687
  • Moto G5S Plus XT1806
Update 12/19: The $25 off coupon and six months free service in no longer available with purchases of the Moto G5 Plus or G5S Plus.

Upon looking into the coupon further, it looks like each person can use it multiple times. On many of the offers, free shipping is included. B&H does not collect sales taxes on purcheses unless you are a New York or New Jersey resident.

This offer expires on January 12, 2018.


Free Six Months of Service


This brings us to the next B&H offer. When you purchase a smartphone, you automatically get free six months of service under Republic Wireless. But if you don't want to use service offered by the Sprint and T-Mobile MVNO, you can simply opt not to activate it. You'll still be entitled to the $25 discount on the device you want since they are all unlocked.

But in case you want to use this free service, here are some of the things you need to know about the offer:


  • When you take the $25 off deal, your phone will include a free Republic Wireless SIM card. 
  • Once you decide to activate the SIM card, you will get to enjoy 6 months of free service under the MVNO's My Choice Plan + 2GB of data. The plan includes unlimited talk and text.
  • The phone line needs to be activated before January 31, 2018. 

Since the $25 discount on the phone expires on January 12th, you need to purchase it before then. And if you're decided to get the free 6 months of service, you have to activate the SIM card before January 31, 2018. 

The promotion is only available for new service lines and is not applicable for existing service lines. 

Update 12/29: Dead! It looks like the $25 off coupon and six months free service deal is no longer available even though it was advertised as being good until 1/12.

    1. You don't have to use the phone on Republic to get $25 off.

    2. Dude, you are crazy. Dennis isn't pimping anything. This is an awesome deal, and if you only want the phone or service you can sell the other.

  2. I don't understand the T-Mobile Sprint thing, they work on both?

    1. T-Mobile OR Sprint not both on the same phone. Republic sells phones that work on Sprint and phones and SIMs that work on T-Mobile. The Republic SIM that comes with the B&H deal is for T-Mobile.

  3. Pretty solid deal, though I don't know much about republic wireless, but the e4+ at b&h comes almost exactly to Amazon's best price on this phone, with the b&h deal you get the 6 months service too. Data add on seems pretty fair @$5 a gig. I assume you can use the Sim card in any unlocked phone, and that the b&h Moto phones don't have any kind of republic carrier ap?

    1. Republic supports a limited number of phones. if you have one of the supported phones I you could use the SIM in it.

      To use the B&H phones on Republic you have to download the Republic app from the Play Store, it's not pre-instlled.

  4. i opted instead for the kodak phone at $99. lte compatable with gsm in north american version , and great front and rear camera. also had full 1080 hd screen. 5" screen at 441 dpi means sharp pic and can easily carry in pocket. makes a great traveler's p or vacation phone. unlike cdma, gsm is used worlwide.

    2. No tax outside of NYC? That's rare nowadays.

      Delete
    3. No tax outside the states on New York and New Jersey. Online retailers are only required to collect taxes in states where they have a physical presence

  6. Great deal. Dumping Cricket, it's way too slow everywhere I go.

    1. "Great deal. Dumping Cricket, it's way too slow everywhere I go. "

      You aren't in for a treat if you got with Republic on Sprint: no data in most places. A worse situation than slow Cricket in most places.

    2. T-mobile's incredibly fast if you get good coverage.

      It's a shame there's a huge coverage hole in this area, otherwise I'd be using them myself.

      The irony is that I get a decent AT&T connection in that exact same spot, while everywhere else is slow as heck.

      Delete
    3. No kidding, Att is deteriorating quickly around here, and here's the kicker, they don't seem to care. Verizon kicks their ****** in data speed, I'm out in 7 days!

      Delete
    4. They never should've offered unlimited data plans.

      $10/4GB paygo, sure.

      But not a $50 all you can congest buffet.

      Now, even if you only use a couple GB each month, you're still getting shit-tier speeds because trendy millennials-next-door Chad and Stacy dumped their wifi and started streaming Netflix 24/7 through AT&T.

      At this point it's just a matter of light flighting away from whatever network's being weighed down by problem users, so thst light users with backup wifi and reasonable usage don't get dragged down to abysmal single-digit speeds.

      Personally, I'd rather they just ban anyone who uses more than 35GB/mo for life (which isn't unreasonable, considering Android can set and enforce data limits).

      But I know that's just a pipe dream, because you can't blame the data guzzlers for nothing anymore without risking an insane overcorrection that'll set us all back to a 1GB hard limit.

    5. "At this point it's just a matter of light flighting away from whatever network's being weighed down by problem users,"

      Sorry, not true. Those who make wise use of the data plans they paid for are not a "problem"... And so what about your peevish pejorative of "guzzlers".. they pay for all they guzzle. There's nothing to blame them for.

      Bans for using 35gb are silly, and unlimited data plans are a bad idea. Don't like using the data you pay for? Then don't use it, problem solved. What others do with their purchase is not your business. Even if they....gasp... watch Netflix. Butt out.

      The only problem users are the busybodies.

  7. Hi Dennis,

    thx for the RW write-up. It's a wealth of info as always. I noticed that you mentioned GV number won't be allowed to transfer into RW but when I put mine in RW transfer number checker, it was happy to accept it. On the flip side, my mobile number (orig on AT&T then VZ then RP then Ting) shows that it can not be transfer!?!?! This is opposite answers that I was expecting per your RW write up. Did I missed something? Your thoughts please.

    1. I did not write this post, Christine did, but I don't see any mention of number porting in it.

      Not all numbers are portable to all carriers. To be portable the receiving carrier must have a presence in the number's "rate center". The rate center is based on the area code plus the first 3 numbers of the phone number. Consequently the portability of any given number is somewhat of a crapshoot.

    2. I understand. Thanks for the feedback. Perhaps Ting uses bandwidth.com back-end services and therefor can't take the business away from one of their customers. Just many variables to number portability to be certain as an outsider.

      Happy holidays!

  8. an option I'm considering is to find a place to park my number, my ring.to acct isn't accepting new number. Do you know a free/low cost place to park a number? Thx

  9. Offer expires 1/12 or whenever they feel like it. What a joke. Total bait and switch.

    1. It looks like you are right. The $25 and 6 months free service deal seems to have disappeared from the B&H site.

  10. Very disappointed that the promo ($25.00 of + 6 mos RW) ended early. 12/29-computer glitch so had a hard time completing the order with a Moto already in the cart. But because it was valid till 1/12, thought I had time to order it. Just in case, I saved a screen shot then logged on the VERY NEXT day 12/30 and poof---promotion was gone!
