I realize that there are only a few more days left until you get drunk out of your mind and puke all over your best friend’s newly acquired Nintendo Wii, but that still gives you enough time to sign a new cell phone contract. As a last minute holiday gift, T-Mobile is reportedly waiving their activation fees (starting Friday the 28th) and they’ll continue to do this until the ball drops in Times Square on Monday night.
It’s not a huge savings over the regular cost of grabbing a new mobile phone, but they say that a penny saved is a penny earned. In the case of this current promotion, that’s about 3500 pennies saved, which should be enough to at least handle a meal or two. Better still, you can nab the speaker-packing Samsung Beat music phone for free if you sign on the dotted line.
Now you just have to figure out where you’re going to spend that extra $35 or so.
