Ahh, it's that time again here in the states. The leaves start changing colors, the sweatshirts come out of storage, and moms and dads everywhere are rejoicing as they pack their kids' lunches and send them back to the classrooms. Though, this also means kids need to be picked up from school too. With all the after school activities and practices going on these days, it's hard to keep up with them. The easy thing to do would be to get them a cell phone to stay in touch. Unless, that is, if you strike up a deal with the overnight custodians to keep your kids until the next morning. Wait, bad idea, that's probably illegal, right? So instead, why don't you add a line to your family plan for free with T-Mobile? Now there's a novel idea.
T-Mobile has announced their Kids Are Free promotion allows "new and existing T-Mobile customers who sign up for a qualifying family plan through Nov. 2, 2010, receive free add-a-line service on up to three lines of their plan until 2012." Wouldn't that be nice if little Sally could have the new Samsung Vibrant, or better yet, the newly announced G2. Heck, with one of the latest Android phones from T-Mobile, she might even end up being the most popular girl in her class. And you might land parent of the year award -- well, from little Sally that is. Unfortunately, there is no word on how old the little one has to be to qualify; we're assuming they need to be 17 and under. For more family friendly promotions and full press, be sure to make the jump. [Business Wire]
