AT&T Offers Up to $1,000 Off New iPhone, Galaxy Upgrades Ahead of the Holidays

If you’re on AT&T and have been debating getting a new iPhone or Samsung Galaxy phone this holiday season, you might find yourself with a better deal now that it’s well past Black Friday. The carrier has increased its promotion for new users and upgrades from $800 off a new Apple or Samsung device to up to $1,000 off, as long as you trade in the phone.

You’ll also need to have an unlimited plan to qualify for the discount, which will be issued as credit credits over a 36-month installment plan.

AT&T has previously offered iPhones for up to $1,000. Recently, it hung Discount on the launch of the new Apple 14 line of Apple before bringing it back down in recent weeks to $800 off. Of course Galaxy S22 starts in february, AT&T is offering up to $800 in rebates new models as long as you traded in any old Galaxy S, Galaxy Note or Galaxy Z phone, including broken ones.

To get $1,000 off a new iPhone, the device you trade in from AT&T will need to be priced by the carrier at least $230. This includes the iPhone 11 Pro Max line, the iPhone 12 (except the 12 Mini) or the iPhone 13 line; Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, S22 line, Z Fold 2 or Fold 3; Google Pixel 6 Pro and OnePlus’ 10 Pro.

If you have an iPhone XS Max, 11, 11 Pro or 12 Mini you can get up to $800 off. And if you trade in one of the various Android devices from Samsung (Galaxy S20 and S21 lines, Note 20 line, original Galaxy Fold or Fold 2 and Z Flip 3 5G), the Google (Pixel 5, 5A and 6) or other Android makers like OnePlus and Microsoft, you can also get up to $800 off a new phone as long as AT&T lets you trade-in devices under $130 and $229.

Other devices including the iPhone 8 line, SE (second or third generation), iX, XR and XS and a wider range of phones from Samsung, LG, Google, Motorola and OnePlus can get up to $350 off the phone updated so as long as AT&T considers that trade to be between $35 and $129.

The deal works for the iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max although the phone you’re trading in will need to be in “good working condition.” (Read the full terms here.)

For Galaxy phones like the S22 line, the Z Flip 4 and the Z Fold 4 the carrier is very soft. Any carrier device that costs $35 or more can qualify you for up to $1,000 in cash back on one of Samsung’s latest phones. The carrier terms for the S22 and the Z Flip and Z Fold deals also don’t say that the phone you’re trading in has to be in “good working condition.”

In any case, if you leave AT&T before the 36-month installment is up — or you want to unlock your phone for use abroad — you’ll be stuck paying the balance and you’ll lose any outstanding credits.

All that said, it’s still a surprising post-Black Friday deal from a carrier as the wireless industry as a whole looks to attract developers and switchers this holiday season.

Verizon has been pushing its latest holiday offer of up to $1,000 off a new phone with a trade-in, though that deal requires you to switch carriers. If you’re already on Verizon, the company is offering up to $800 off with a trade-in, though for this deal you’ll also need to be on one of its Play More, Do More, Get More or One Unlimited rates.

Verizon similarly requires you to stay for 36 months, though it will accept broken or damaged phones as long as they don’t have battery damage.

If you’re on T-Mobile, the carrier is offering $800 off Samsung Galaxy phones in trade-in, but only if you’re unlocked or willing to upgrade to its more expensive Magenta Max plan. Those on other plans can save up to $400 on trade-ins, not as generous as AT&T or Verizon’s offers. In fact, most T-Mobile deals right now seem to require adding a new line, switching from another carrier or conflicting with Magenta Max.

On the other hand, T-Mobile credits are usually over 24 months instead of 36 months like AT&T and Verizon so you’re not tied to a carrier or device for three years.
