A smartphone with reliable service doesn’t seem like a luxury these days, but the price tag on the latest models from Apple, Samsung or Google might feel more luxe than your wallet can handle. The good news is you don’t have to break the bank to get what you want. AT&T has tons of great offers that help you get your hands on a new phone for less, and even knock a few dollars off your monthly service bill. To help you take advantage of them, we’ve rounded up some of the best AT&T deals available now.
While great deals on phones and phone plans may not be a rarity, if you’re on AT&T and are looking for the absolute best ones to take advantage of, we’ve got you covered. We’ve focused specifically on deals that are available for current customers, meaning we aren’t highlighting offers that require you to add a new line, since most people want to upgrade phones they have on the plans they already have, not add a bunch of extra lines to “save” money.
It’s also worth noting that carriers constantly update their deals. AT&T has some pretty compelling offers available now, though the best deals often require you to be on one of the carrier’s unlimited plans. In general, the very best offers usually happen around new phone launches (February or March for Samsung Galaxy S phones; September for Apple iPhones; fall for Google Pixel phones) or the holidays, but AT&T also tends to offer some solid bargains year-round.
While some manufacturers, particularly Apple and Samsung, offer deals on their own websites and stores, most people look to carriers to buy new devices. We’ll keep this page updated regularly with some of the best deals we’re seeing on AT&T’s website.
Best AT&T phone deals
Many of AT&T’s phone deals are available to both new and existing customers, though trade-ins are often required to get the advertised prices. It’s worth noting that these deals are split across 36 months of bill credits, meaning you’ll need to remain an AT&T customer for at least three years to pay off the phone. If you cancel before that period is over, you’ll be responsible for any remaining charges associated with it.
Best AT&T plan deals
If you’re looking to make the switch to AT&T, there are a few deals on various plans that may make you lean toward one or the other. Promotions on plans are less common these days, though oftentimes you can get some free extras (like streaming service subscriptions and music subscriptions) with enrollment in some of the higher-end 5G plans from each carrier. AT&T, however, no longer offers free streaming services to new subscribers who don’t already have it on their plans.
AT&T includes 5G access with all of its plans, with the biggest difference for most people on its latest plans being how much hotspot data you get. There are also differences in how much “high-speed” data you get, though even on its cheapest Starter plan AT&T says it will only slow your speeds “temporarily” if you’re in an area where the network is “busy.”
As for savings, your company may also offer a corporate discount on plans, but you will need to check with them to see if that applies to personal accounts. AT&T also offers a host of discounts depending on your profession.
