AT&T Flaship Chicago Store

AT&T announced this afternoon that, starting today, both new and existing subscribers are eligible for a $100 bill credit when activating a new line of service with a smartphone on Next—AT&T’s upgrade program that allows customers to get new devices on installment plans.

More specifically, the Next program allows qualifying customers to get a new mobile device for $0 down, without upgrade or activation fees, and no annual contract. The cost of the equipment is spread over a two-year term, which makes this $100 promo somewhat appealing.

“This is a great deal for new and existing customers to get our best prices ever on the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network,” said AT&T’s David Christopher. “Customers have flocked to AT&T Next as it offers terrific value and flexibility to get the latest smartphones each year.”

Of course, there’s plenty of fine print. The promo requires the activation of a brand new ‘qualified line’ of service, along with a new smartphone purchased through AT&T’s Next program. Additionally, the customer must keep their account in good standing to receive the credit.

If you’re interested, you can find out more about the offer at AT&T retail stores and online at att.com/100credit. The promotion is good through the end of September, meaning there’s a chance you may be able to take advantage of it while purchasing your brand new iPhone 6.

    Reason I haven’t switched to next is in still grandfathered in on the unlimited data plan. I use around 10gig of data a month and not worth it to switch. Afaik.

      I always loved when they sent me monthly flyers suggesting based on my usage they think I should switch from the unthrotlimited plan to a better plan where I would pay 2x as much. No thanks.

    • The Afroman

      Pretty much this. No thanks. I will just pay my 300 +100 AppleCare+ and be on my way.. *hugs unlimited data*

      If only they allowed me to pay SOMETHING extra for hotspot. *sigh*

        Read my response…

        I’ll repeat what I said above; I’ve been testing T-Mobile which offers truly unlimited (un-throttled) data along with no contract, and the hotspot feature. I’m considering switching when an iPhone 6 comes out. I highly recommend their free Test Drive program to see if reception in your area is worth switching for!

    • Lurker22

      You realize that it’s not unlimited? Att severely throttle you at 2.5gb

      • Tony G

        Yes. But it’s ok. Every month it gets reset. I watch/listen to twitch almost everyday at work and after a week I reach my limit. I just set the quality to mobile and it works fine.

    • Jack Wong

      How much data do you use per month?

      I switched from unlimited(since iPhone 2G) to 10GB shared data plan.

        Exactly, who care how much coverage they have in US, what we really care is our home and where we work.

        I am really happy with all the moves from Tmobile!

        Because of that, I finally have a reasonable off contract shared data plan from At&t, and I can finally afford another sim card with data plan to play with a 2nd phone or tablet.

    • Lordrootman

      Buy unlock code on eBay with 100% money back guarantee
      Never ever buy it on any website

  • Lurker22

    This is a great deal if your work pays your cell bill each month !

  • Frank Miller

    What a great deal! I can pay the full unsubsidized price for a phone & then give it back to AT&T! What a deal for them!

    Yeah, I’m going to pass on this scam forever. If they keep raising activation fees I’ll take my business elsewhere.

    • Lurker22

      You have a choice if want to get a new device (i.e. turn it in) or keep your old one — it’s kind of like a car lease. If you decide to keep the phone, you just continue the payments to pay for the device at 20 months and it’s yours. If you decide to get a new phone at 12 months you turn it in and then start payments for the new phone.

      • Frank Miller

        I would be okay with that if I wasn’t already paying for the subsidized phone price already baked into my monthly bill. As it is now, this “deal” just doesn’t make sense for me. I’m honestly surprised people are signing up.
