AT&T is offering up to $300 in credits to those switching from other wireless carriers. That’s enough to offset a few months of service or a big chunk of the cost of a new iPhone 6 or Android device. The $300 in service credits can be used to pay your AT&T wireless bill or buy accessories. The $300 credit is made up of a $100 switcher credit and a $200 trade-in credit.
So why is AT&T offering to buy phones for more than they’re worth? It’s simply to win new customers from the competition without slashing the sticker price of their phones.
While we see a lot of offers from wireless carriers willing to buy old phones for less than what you could sell them for on your own, AT&T’s offering $200 in credits regardless of what sort of phone you’re turning in, so long as it can turn on and is appraised at $10 or more. That means this deal is especially attractive for people that haven’t upgraded in a couple years or more and are carrying around an aging phone.
AT&T does have a few requirements for those that want the full $300 in credits. You need to sign up for AT&T’s Next payment plan, which breaks up the full cost of a new phone into monthly installments. The offer is only valid for those who are transferring a phone number to AT&T from one of its competitors. This offer is only good on post-paid AT&T plans, not on pre-paid accounts.
If you happen to live in New York City or the eo
an Francisco Bay Area, you can even have your new phone delivered to your house within a few hours by a smartphone expert from Enjoy, a company that AT&T’s partnered with to offer concierge delivery services. Enjoy can help you set up your new phone, transfer stuff over from your old phone and get it set up to work with your other gadgets and accessories.
