AT&T's BOGO deal leaves you with a free Samsung Galaxy S6

AT&T's BOGO deal leaves you with a free Samsung Galaxy S6
AT&T has a new deal for the holidays that gives the buyer of a Samsung Galaxy handset, a free Samsung Galaxy S6. Normally when you hear about a BOGO deal, or a 2 for 1 sale, the buyer pays for one unit and receives the second one for free. But AT&T wants you to start making installment payments for three months before it starts to reimburse you. You need to activate a new line to be eligible for the deal, and both phones must be purchased using AT&T Next. The free Galaxy S6 has to be bought using Next 24.

The models you can choose from to receive the free Galaxy S6 include the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ , Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Three months after making the purchase, AT&T will start to credit you with $21.67 a month for 30 months to cover the cost of the Galaxy S6. However, because of the three month gap, which is listed in the fine print, you might end up laying out $65.01 for your free phone. It all comes out in the wash anyway, as they say.

The deal expires on December 31st. If you don't mind having to lay out $65.01 (which you will get back eventually), and you were looking to add a new line to your AT&T account, this might be a good way to come up with a gift that a family member or friend will surely love. On the other hand, if you know someone on AT&T that plans on taking this deal, now might be the time to start cozying up to them.

last good deal I saw was the S6 discounted by $200 at T-mobile. This is perhaps the most aggressive deal on the S6 I've seen, discounting it by almost $300. Methinks that Samsung is trying really hard to close the year with strong sales volume, albeit sacrificing profits.

This deal is also going on for the iPhone 6s, AT&T just can't advertise it per their agreement with Apple. Another thing: the device is only covered for a total value of up to $650, any payments after that will be the responsibility of the account holder.
