AT&T extends its BOGO offer to the iPhone series

AT&T extends its BOGO offer to the iPhone series
A couple of days ago, AT&T announced a BOGO (buy one, get one free) deal on high-end Samsung smartphones, and now it looks like the carrier has decided to extend the offer to iPhones as well.

The deal, which is available to both new and existing customers, allows you to buy an iPhone at the full price and get a second one for free. AT&T does not limit the promotion to a specific model, which should mean that the offer is valid on all five iPhone models currently available at AT&T, the iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 5s. That's the offer in a nutshell, but the terms and conditions are actually a bit more complex, as we're about to explain.

Both iPhones must be purchased through AT&T's Next 24 equipment installment plan, which means that you'll have to pay for the phone in 30 monthly installments. The first iPhone can be either a new line or an upgrade, while the second must be activated on a new line. Furthermore, both phones must be added to one of the qualified plans, such as the Mobile Share Value plan which starts at $70 for two lines.

Customers also have to pay sales tax on both phones. AT&T may require customers to make up to three monthly payments on both iPhones before crediting up to $650 for the second device (this credit will be spread out across the 30 monthly purchases).

AT&T's iPhone BOGO offer is valid starting today and will last until the 31st of March. What do you guys think, is this a good deal or not?

If they are giving the phone away free, why will it take 30 months to get credit? That's stupid! Why bill the monthly payment to the account, just to credit it back off? ATT is stupid. When VZW did these deals, they didn't do no stupid crap like that. I know iPhone sales are slipping and ATT usually buys the largest iPhone stock compare to the other 3 combined. The fact they are still stuck with so many 5S models, shows the sales of the iPhone dies very fast. I recall back in time when the iPhone was exclusive to only ATT, ATT sold roughly 14M phones in the first quarter. But then in the second quarter those sales dropped to roughly 8M and then less than 5 million by the third quarter of sales. So is this equal to a fire sale? Because when its Android phones on BOGO, its because they arent selling and this is to encourage sales. So this is equal when it happens to the iPhone...right?

This is AT&T only grabbing net 200+k postpaid handset subscribers and trying to stem the churn. They are in free fall, and they won't unveil unlimited for everyone, so they are offering BOGO on all their best phones. Nothing more.

That way you have to stay with att with the free phone. I am with att so wouldn't bother me. But I wouldn't own a iPhone and if I didn't have a new note already I would go with the Samsung deal.

It would be stupid yo just give phones for free and not getting anything back if you want FREE then go to assurance wireless, apply for lifeline then it might fit your profile better Techie jajaja
