T-Mobile are a brand that don’t really need much of an introduction. They have taken off in a major way and secured a decent share of the market, not just in the US but in several other territories around the world.
Mostly, when we have to troubleshoot problems relating to their services, this is generally to do with calls not coming through or other related issues. However, today is going to be a little different.
One of the main strengths of the T-Mobile brand is that their usefulness extends far beyond the simple communications aspect of their business. They also have their fingers in a few other pies. One of these is a program that they have developed for their customers’ benefit which they have called ‘T-Mobile Tuesdays’.
Most of us will agree that Tuesday is a distinctly average day most of the time. So, what the guys at T-Mobile have done is introduce a whole set of deals and discounts and applied them to their customer base that they can then use every Tuesday.
Most of the time, all of these deals and discounts will work without a hitch. However, one of their more popular deals – the one they have set up with Popeyes – seems to be not working as often as it works.
Seeing as this is pretty annoying to say the least, we thought we would have a look into figuring it out for you. Below is what we discovered.
Ways To Fix T-Mobile Popeyes Not Working
A few of these fixes you may have already tried, However, we would still recommend going through them all in case you have missed one vital component that makes the whole thing just click. Let’s get into it!
- Timing is Everything
The first thing we need to check off the list is that you are all following the conditions of the offer. Most of you will already know this but there is a deadline on this offer, and it expires at 4pm. Even on the final day that the deal runs, you should try to get to Popeyes somewhere between 4 and 5pm to make fully sure that you get that free burger.
- Drive-Thru Or In-Person
If you have your heart set on getting that free burger and T-Mobile’s foibles seem to be getting in the way of that happening, there is quite a lot to be said for placing your order in person as opposed to redeeming the deal online.
For us, the best way to go about it is to head for the drive-thru, where you will be able to communicate with an actual human and get it done that way. All you will need to do is show them the code – which will be valid – and then collect your free burger.
Also, in most cases, you won’t even need to have the app – Popeyes will simply just check the code.
- The Deal may have Expired
If you have tried going to Popeyes and you are both on time and went straight for the drive-thru and it still didn’t work out for you, this will most likely mean that the deal has expired.
The unfortunate thing here is that the T-Mobile app and the one for Popeyes can end having two different expiration dates. It’s annoying, we know. Really, the only way around it is to check the expiry date on both apps to make sure you aren’t caught off guard.
- There may be a Tech Issue at play
When T-Mobile first started up the Popeyes deal, it didn’t exactly work flawlessly either. In fact, very few users were actually able to redeem the code. On top of that, the Popeyes deal was announced before its time and then later couldn’t go live. So, a bit of a disaster all ‘round, for sure.
Given the history of tech woes behind this deal, it may actually be worth going back in time a little in terms of tech. Why not try to call them up and see will they redeem the code for you over the phone? It may sound a bit odd, but it’s a solid way of making sure that the tech element is removed from the situation.
It is worth noting that when this issue first became known about, a lot of people took to social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to complain about the problem.
When this happened, T-Mobile were pretty quick to confirm that there was a tech issue at play. So, just in case you thought this suggestion was a little odd, there is a basis for it!
- Are you Eligible for the Deal?
If the Popeyes deal is still not working for you and you can’t figure out why, the most likely cause is that you are simply ineligible to claim it. We would recommend that you go and check whether this is the case or not before wasting any more time on it.
The way it works is that, if T-Mobile customers have subscribed to a monthly plan, they can then qualify for all of the various deals in the Tuesdays program. On top of that, there is a stipulation that states the customer needs to be over 18 years old.
But there is a way around this age restriction too. So, if you are over 13 and have the consent of your parents to sign up for Tuesdays, you will be okay that way. For the next restriction, you need to be a legal resident of the US.
Once you have all of that wrapped up, we can’t see any other barrier that could possibly be standing in your way. However, if there is something we may have missed, feel free to hit us up in the comments section so that others can be aware of it.
