Deal: Get a free iPhone 8 from AT&T (terms and conditions apply)
The last time AT&T offered a free Apple iPhone, it was the old and rather inexpensive iPhone SE that could have been yours for $0 in certain conditions. For a limited time, AT&T is now offering a newer and more valuable iPhone model for free - the iPhone 8 64 GB, normally costing $600 at AT&T and Apple. Naturally, some specific conditions have to be met in this case, too.

You can get a free iPhone 8 64 GB from AT&T only if you add a new line of service - to a new or existing account - with an AT&T unlimited plan of minimum $80 per month. The smartphone must be bought on AT&T Next (with monthly payments of $20 for 30 months) or on AT&T Next Every Year (with monthly payments of $25 for 24 months). If all conditions are met, you will receive $600 back in monthly bill credits over 30 or 24 months, starting with the 3rd bill cycle.

This offer is valid through June 6, 2019 still valid as of today, June 10, 2019. Only the iPhone 8 64 GB can be had for free (in space gray, silver, or gold). The iPhone 8 256 GB is not part of the deal, so this variant is sold at the full price of $749. The iPhone 8 Plus is also excluded from the offer.

Released in September 2017, the iPhone 8 doesn't have the modern design of Apple's latest family of handsets (iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR), but it's still a powerful and respectable device. If you're okay with the iPhone 8's screen size - 4.7 inches - and you need an unlimited plan from AT&T, getting this device for free doesn't sound bad at all.

There are more strings attached to this deal than that to a pirate ship deck

How is $80 a month extra to your bill for a contract of 2 years, free? Especially for such a low resolution iPhone 8 with that design sinking faster than the Titanic.
