T-Mobile will donate $1 to charity with every Android Pay purchase you make

T-Mobile

T-Mobile has announced a charity drive that will run through the Holidays, in partnership with Google’s #AndroidPay. As per this campaign, the company will offer $1 to charity when a customer makes a purchase using Android Pay. The proceeds go to Donors Choose which is a non-profit (US 501) that funds all schools in the U.S. by offering field trips, books and other essentials for the kids.

There’s not much the customers have to do and you can simply make a purchase using Android Pay and the carrier will do the rest. Perhaps you can use Google’s wireless payment service in lieu of a credit or debit card, just so that $1 goes towards a noble cause. T-Mobile hasn’t clarified if this only applies to payments made via the carrier’s retail outlets or every Android Pay transaction in general.

The carrier’s tweet doesn’t reveal much on this, so further clarification is awaited. Android Pay is accepted on all major retail outlets of the U.S. that have an NFC payment terminal, so you can simply walk over to your nearest store and check if you can pay for your purchase using Android Pay.

  1. Another update: Now Google is getting in on the game!

    From a recent email: “This holiday season, each time you use Android Pay through December 31st, Google will donate $1— up to $1 million — to special needs education projects.”

  2. I think T-Mobile needs to clarify that aspect. Their tweet leaves much to the imagination.

  3. So, just to be clear, is this purchases made AT T-Mobile, or any purchases made anywhere while you are a customer of T-Mobile and using Android pay?

    The initial tweet could be read either way, and this part of the article makes it sound like only purchases at TMO:

    “Android Pay is accepted on all major T-Mobile outlets that have a NFC payment terminal, so you can simply walk over to your nearest store and check if you can pay for your purchase using Android Pay.”
