It was only a matter of time before more of the wireless providers bought into the daily deal craze. Now T-Mobile is entering the fray.
T-Mobile is launching More for Me, a nationwide, free aggregation service. Currently in beta mode, More for Me can be accessed via "nearly any" smartphone running Android 1.6 or higher. The app is available to download from the Android Market now.
T-Mobile isn't the first carrier to get involved with daily deals. After all, it's possibly-soon-partner/owner, AT&T, already announced plans for a daily deal site of its own.
However, T-Mobile's is different (and slightly more appealing) because it doesn't do the traditional daily or instant deal gimmick. More for Me follows more in the path of YipIt and AmazonLocal because it collects deals from LivingSocial (and presumably others, although T-Mobile didn't specify) into one neat place on the app. Who's inbox isn't crowded from a hundred different deal sites these days?
And if you really want to be notified immediately about new deals, there is the option to receive free text messages with offers, although that might get very annoying after awhile.
More for Me follows on the heels of the news that T-Mobile's latest promo to offer free data for a year (which equates to roughly $120 before overage fees) for Father's Day. All of these promotions are nice and all, but will we see them last through the merger with AT&T if that goes through?
