If you’re on AT&T and have been debating getting a new iPhone or Samsung Galaxy this holiday season, you might find yourself in for a better deal now even though we’re past Black Friday. The carrier has upped its promotion for new users and an upgrade from $800 off a new Apple or Samsung device to up to $1,000 off, as long as you trade in a phone.
You’ll also need an unlimited plan to be eligible for the discount, which will be eliminated as bill credits over the course of the 36-month installment plan.
AT&T has dabbled in giving away up to $1,000 iPhones before. Lately, she’s been hanging outbefore shrinking in recent weeks to $800. to me launch in february, New models As long as you trade in any older Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, or Galaxy Z phone, including those that are jailbroken.
To get $1,000 off a new iPhone, the device you’re trading in to AT&T must be valued by the carrier at a minimum of $230. This includes the iPhone 11 Pro Max line, iPhone 12 (excluding 12 Mini), or iPhone 13 line; Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, S22 line, Z Fold 2 or Fold 3; Google Pixel 6 Pro and OnePlus 10 Pro phones.
If you have an iPhone XS Max, 11, 11 Pro, or 12 Mini, you can get up to $800 off. And if you’re trading in one of the various Android devices from Samsung (Galaxy S20 and S21 lines, Note 20 line, original Galaxy Fold or Fold 2 and Z Flip 3 5G), Google (Pixel 5, 5A and 6) or other Android makers like OnePlus and Microsoft, you can also get up to $800 off a new phone as long as AT&T values replacement hardware between $130 and $229.
Others including the iPhone 8 line, SE (2nd or 3rd generation), X, XR, and XS plus a much wider selection of Samsung, LG, Google, Motorola, and OnePlus phones can get up to $350 off a new phone. . As long as AT&T values these deals at between $35 and $129.
This deal works with the iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max though the phone you’re trading in must be in “good working order.” (Read the full terms here.)
For Galaxy phones like the S22 line, Z Flip 4, and Z Fold 4, the carrier is more lenient. Any device that your carrier values at $35 or more may make you eligible for up to $1,000 off one of Samsung’s latest phones. Carrier terms for the S22 and the Z Flip and Z Fold deals also don’t specify that the phone you’re trading in must be in “good working order.”
In either scenario, if you leave AT&T before the 36-month installment is up — or you want to unlock your phone to use internationally — you’ll be on the hook for paying off the outstanding balance and lose any outstanding credits.
All that said, the post-Black Friday deal is still a surprise from the carrier as the wireless industry at large looks to woo developers and switchers this holiday season.
Verizon has been pushing its recent holiday offer of up to $1,000 off a new phone with an exchange program, though that deal requires you to switch to the carrier. If you’re already on Verizon, the company is offering up to $800 trade-in, though for that deal you’ll also need to be on one of its pricier Play More, Do More, Get More, or One Unlimited plans.
Similarly, Verizon requires you to stay for 36 months, though they accept broken or damaged phones as long as they don’t have battery damage.
If you’re on T-Mobile, the carrier is offering up to $800 off Samsung Galaxy phones with the trade-in, but only if you’re using or want to upgrade to the pricier Magenta Max plan. Those on other plans can save up to $400 with a trade-in, not as generous as AT&T or Verizon offers. In fact, most T-Mobile deals right now seem to require adding a new line, switching from a different carrier or upgrading to Magenta Max.
On the plus side, T-Mobile credits generally span a 24-month period instead of 36 months like AT&T and Verizon, so you’re not tied to the carrier or device for three years.
