Deal: Buy a Samsung Galaxy S6 or Note 5 from AT&T, get another S6 for free
If you're not interested in Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, and you want to purchase a Galaxy S6 from AT&T, you may want to do it now, as the second largest US mobile carrier has a BOGO (buy one, get one free) deal for you.

It looks like the deal includes not just the regular Galaxy S6, but also the rugged, water-resistant Galaxy S6 Active, the Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, and even the Galaxy Note 5 - you can buy any of them, and get a 32 GB Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Active for free. To qualify for this offer, you must get both smartphones on AT&T Next with qualified service of at least $70 per month. The offer will end on March 31, and, for some reason, it's "void in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Miami-Dade." Anyway, make sure to read the full Terms & Conditions at AT&T's website (the second source link below).

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Active are still running Android Lollipop, but Samsung will soon update them to Android Marshmallow. In case you want to know more about the two handset, go ahead and read our Samsung Galaxy S6 review, and our Galaxy S6 Active review.

You can get a Note 5 on the BOGO. You get a credit of up to 595 (msrp of s6 or s6 active). You will make up the difference and divide that over the 30 installment payments. The Note 5 32GB is 740 so, 740 - 595.00 = 145, divide the 145 by 30 and you will have to pay $4.83/month on the BOGO line plus line access of either 25 or 15 depending on your Mobile Share Value plan.

That's still a loss + line access + Data package + monthly surcharge fees + taxes You lost the moment you agreed to monthly Plans . Win would equal a Samsung buy get one free deal with no carrier agenda or involvement.

Haven't ever seen a 2 for 1 deal at AT&T. This was a Verizon thing back when they didn't have the iPhone. Gotta make room for the S7. That's a good deal. I know the S6 stacked up because the Edge model was actually the better seller. I wished Samsung had just made the S7 Edge and Edge+ and that's it, but whatever works. About 30 days until Samsung Unpacked 2016 Part I.

Yes this is a killer deal especially with the whole Samsung flagship line up to choose from including the s6 active

Actually, they've been doing this for the last few years as a Valentine's day promo. You're also right that they're clearing out inventory for the next batch of phones from Sammy. I'm waiting to see the LG G5 come out and then decide on old or new. LG's got some pretty good bang for the buck. If nothing else, there should be a lot of price drops after MWC.
