T-Mobile is giving away free 'Pokémon Go' data for a year

Engadget Engadget 14/07/2016 Brittany Vincent

T-Mobile has been watching you play Pokémon Go, and it knows you're guzzling data every time you head out to catch Pokémon. That's why the next T-Mobile Tuesday is poised to offer unlimited data for Pokémon Go through August 2017.

The Un-carrier is keeping an eye on this massive global phenomenon, and wants to help you get out there and be the very best like no one ever was. Along with your year of free Pokémon data, you can also claim a free Frosty, a free Lyft ride up to $15 and 50% off of certain accessories via T-Mobile, such as battery packs so you can keep the game going long after your battery has succumbed to incessant GPS usage.

A handful of lucky winners will win free trips to anywhere in the US to go Pokémon hunting, while 250 others will receive $100 to spend on Pokécoins, the in-game currency of Pokemon Go. If you happen to miss claiming your year of free data, the offer will last all the way through Tuesday, August 9th. You should start seeing these offers in the T-Mobile Tuesday app tomorrow.

If you do happen to take advantage of this lavish offer of free Pokémon Go data, make sure you're responsible and don't fall victims to robbers or throw Poke Balls in the Holocaust Museum. Be safe and respectful!
