Jul 14, 2016 - 10:30pm AST

T-Mobile is going Pokémon crazy by offering some insane deals in hopes of bring in more customers to their ‘un-carrier’ network.

They announced that as part of next week’s T-Mobile Tuesday, all customers will be able to play Pokémon Go without using data from their mobile plans. From July 19th, mobile users on the network will enjoy this privilege up to a whole year, which equates to a lot of Pokémon hunting.

Both new and existing customers automatically qualify for the year of free Pokémon Go mobile data, which expires in August 2017. To redeem this offer, users simply have to download the T-Mobile app to activate the plan, and they should do so before August 9th, 2016 when the offer expires.

Beyond this, they’re also offering free Lyft rides, up to $15 to a new PokéStop or Gym, a free Wendy’s Frosty, and 50% off select accessories such as portable power packs and chargers at T-Mobile stores. Of course these offers will only be valid on July 19th.

Also, 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.

Here’s John Legere, the company’s CEO all dressed up and ready to go hunting.

Of course a Drake meme comes in handy at this time.
