Today is opening day for Major League Baseball and here is my celebratory post! For the second year in a row, T-Mobile customers can receive a year of MLB TV for free. Fellow points and baseball fan Bret Bourgeois alerted me to this a couple weeks ago.
@asthejoeflies MLB TV Will Be Free In 2017 For T-Mobile Subscribers, 2nd year in a row bringing you value. Go Yankees!

I’ll forgive the Yankee fandom since Bret tips me off to this every year when I might otherwise forget.
One important thing to note, while last year we had a few days to sign up, this year it seems like you can only sign up using the T-Mobile Tuesdays app this Tuesday April 4th, 2017.
I honestly haven’t used the T-Mobile Tuesday app since I got two free pizzas last year, but free MLB TV presented me with a great opportunity to reinstall. Basically, you just need to be logged in to the T-Mobile network on Tuesday April 4th to redeem. You have until 4:59 AM EST on the 5th to redeem and until the 11th to confirm with MLB. So here’s your friendly reminder to download the app before Tuesday if you have T-Mobile!
A few years back I switched from Verizon, where I paid $120 for two lines, to Straight Talk, where we paid $50 for two lines. Straight Talk just didn’t have a good enough network for the savings so we switched to T-mobile. I’m now on a family plan where we pay $30/line and we each have 10 GB of data which none of us ever use up.
Needless to say, with stuff like free MLB TV I’m happy to have made the switch. T-Mobile’s free international data and messaging (albeit at slower speeds) has come in useful as well. So consider this your PSA to sign up for MLB TV through T-Mobile and a vote for T-Mobile as a carrier.
