AT&T extends $50 credit for iPhone upgrades purchased through Apple Store
AT&T is running an unadvertised promotion that gives a $50 bill credit to current subscribers purchasing a new iPhone from the Apple Store as an upgrade under the carrier’s Next program.
According to the terms of the deal, the $50 credit is applicable to current subscribers who buy any new iPhone model from online or brick-and-mortar Apple Stores, sign up for AT&T’s Next financing program and keep the line active for at least 45 days. Introduced last year, AT&T Next is a specialized payment plan that allows customers to take receipt of a new handset or tablet with zero down, spreading the regular retail price across 20, 24 or 30 monthly installments. Depending on the program, customers can trade in their handset for a new one after 12, 18 or 24 months.
As noted above, the promotion officially ends on Dec. 31, but AT&T reserves the right to discontinue the deal at any time.
