Here is how you can get a free iPhone 8 64GB when you buy an iPhone X at AT&T

Remember we reported last month that AT&T doesn't want to aggressively promote the iPhone X, so it decided not to offer any deals on Apple's flagship? Well, it looks like there might be something in that the carrier will offer customers who can afford one, it's just that the promotion will not be advertised.

We've got word that for a limited time, customers who buy the iPhone X can get the iPhone 8 64GB for free (after bill credits) when both are purchased on an installment plan with eligible service.

The offer is available since November 2, but eligible purchases of iPhone X with a qualified iPhone 8/8 Plus Add-A-Line as of October 27, may be recognized for the offer.

Keep in mind that the iPhone X can be a new activation or an existing upgrade, while the iPhone 8/8 Plus must be an Add-a-Line on an installment plan. It's also worth mentioning that customers who purchase two iPhone X phones (no iPhone 8) will not be eligible for the offer.

Finally, customers who buy the iPhone X with a new activation or upgrade might also opt to get the iPhone 8 256GB or iPhone 8 Plus, instead of the iPhone 8 64GB. However, these models are eligible for a discount but will not come for free.

Once again, this is “an unadvertised offer,” so you should ask for it, as you won't be informed about it when you want to purchase the iPhone X.

I am surprised that kiko007, toukale, or pyiath are not here to say that the iPhone 8 sales are doing great. Well I guess the iPhone 8 is are doing great, especially if they are giving it away. Where are those 3 Stooges? They should be here any minute to preach and sing the high praises of the Apple sales religion.

Most “unadvertised” offers at AT&T requires you to have or sign up for Direct TV and/or AT&T internet. They have a bogo deal going on for the 8/8plus but you have to have both Direct TV and AT&T internet to qualify for the service.

DirecTV is not a requirement.

It was, prior to the launch of iPhone X.

while the iPhone 8/8 Plus must be an Add-a-Line on an installment plan. I was in an ATT store yesterday. 11/13/17 The salesman told me about this offer. I asked for the details for the offer and he said it is an unadvertised offer. I was a bit skeptical. I usually like to read something about the offer. I am an existing 2 line customer and both phones were eligible for the upgrade. We signed and paid the taxes for both phones and went for the Deal. My wife has the iPhone 8 and I have the X. Well, not yet the delivery is early December. I have a question: in Reading the offer above it states that : while the iPhone 8/8 Plus must be an Add-a-Line on an installment plan. The salesman didn't state anything about this condition. I assume it is because we already had a second line... Anyone able to confirm?..the whole deal makes me a little nervous. One final fact is they said for the first three billing periods we will need to pay for the iPhone 8 payments and then by the 4th payment we will see those payments on our account as credits..
