T-Mobile today announced that, with next week’s T-Mobile Tuesday, the Un-carrier is thanking its customers with free, unlimited data for Pokémon Go — the new sensation that’s taking the world by storm. On July 19th, as part of next week’s T-Mobile Tuesdays, the Un-carrier will give customers great ways to take their Pokémon Go skillz to a whole new level, including:

• Free, unlimited data on Pokémon Go, so it won’t touch your high-speed data — for a full year!
• Free Lyft rides up to $15 to get to a new PokéStop or Gym
• Free Wendy’s Frosty to fuel up for your hunting trip
• 50% off select accessories — including portable power packs and chargers at T-Mobile stores — so you can keep on playing for hours

On top of that, 250 people will each win $100 in PokéCoins, and five people will win a Pokémon Go hunting trip anywhere in the U.S. for themselves and a guest!

“This is what T-Mobile Tuesday is all about — thanking customers with hot, new, totally free gifts every week, and right now, nothing is hotter than Pokémon Go!” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile in a statement. “With the carriers’ shared data schemes, players could easily burn up the family’s data bucket — and then, hello, overages! At T-Mobile, we’re unleashing Pokémon Go so our customers can play free for a year. It’s gonna be a fantastic T-Mobile Tuesday!”

Since Pokémon Go launched July 6th, the mobile game has raced past the likes of Facebook and Twitter on the app charts, already attracting a record-setting 21 million daily users in the U.S. alone. The groundbreaking AR game has surged to the No. 1 free game and No. 1 grossing game in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store in record-breaking time, qualifying Pokémon Go as a certifiable global phenomenon.

New and existing T-Mobile customers can get free and unlimited high-speed data for all your Pokémon Go gaming in the U.S. — all the way through the end of August 2017. They just need to download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app and claim the free gift. But hurry — this limited-time offer will be available to redeem starting next Tuesday, July 19th, and available to redeem every T-Mobile Tuesday through Tuesday, August 9th. Everyone who’s eligible for T-Mobile Tuesdays is eligible for all this Pokémon fun.

Last month, T-Mobile unveiled its 11th iconic Un-carrier move — #GetThanked — a set of history-making initiatives dedicated exclusively to saying “thank you” to customers, offering T-Mobile customers ownership in the company, free stuff every week, and free in-flight smartphone Wi-Fi on Gogo-equipped U.S. flights. With T-Mobile Tuesdays, customers can count on getting thanked each week with free recurring gifts, a surprise free gift from a new partner and a chance to win something epic. After launch, the T-Mobile Tuesdays app immediately jumped to No. 1 on the App Store. And, millions of T-Mobile customers have already been thanked with free stuff.

The new offers will be visible in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app on iOS and Android and at www.t-mobiletuesdays.com starting tomorrow, so customers can get ready for next Tuesday.
