Back in 2016, T-Mobile launched T-Mobile Tuesdays, a program that has been giving free stuff to its customers with no strings attached – other than being its customers. Today the carrier is massively expanding this to become an all-day everyday thing. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Magenta Status.
It’s like a rewards program, but with all of the benefits accessible from the beginning for everyone, with no hoops to jump through and no “forcing people to chase an elusive metal-named or gem-named status that’s always just out of reach”, according to T-Mobile’s own words.
There is one caveat, so let’s begin with that. Magenta Status applies to “T-mobile postpaid, including small businesses and most T-Mobile prepaid customers”. No sub-brands, and we’re not sure why only “most” prepaid customers and who exactly is eligible. But if you are with T-Mobile and aren’t on a prepaid plan, you’re pretty much set.
You’re getting 15% off across Hilton’s 22 brands worldwide and when you sign up, you’re automatically upgraded to Hilton Honors Silver, a tier that normally requires you to have spent at least 10 nights the previous year in a Hilton hotel. Silver benefits include free Wi-Fi, a fifth night free on reward stays, as well as an all-inclusive spa discount.
Next up, car rental. If you rent a gas car from Dollar or an EV from Hertz and need to return it to “nearly all airports across America”, you don’t have to hit the pump or the charger before you head to the airport. Just drop off the keys and you won’t be hit with an extra charge for not topping it up.
You also get 25% off tickets to “some of the hottest shows at Live Nation amphitheaters and select clubs and venues”, all year round. This means there’s a deal for you on more than 8,000 shows across 120 venues and with T-Mobile Reserved Tickets you can also score exclusive access to some of the best seats available.
Every single month, you’ll get the opportunity to view one movie for $5 per person for everyone on your TMo account. This month, it’s Bob Marley: One Love. Finally, you get entry to Club Magenta VIP lounges at “the best sports and entertainment events” like the F1 Las Vegas GP, Lollapalooza, the Austin City Limits Music Festival and more.
T-Mobile Tuesdays will remain available, and everything will be managed through T Life, a brand new app made to help you keep track of your perks and benefits. This will be rolling out to all customers as a free automatic update to the existing T-Mobile Tuesdays app.
