DALLAS, Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning Nov. 13, consumers who trade in their current, qualified smartphone to AT&T* in store will be eligible to receive at least $100 off the purchase of some of the season's hottest smartphones like the HTC One® 32-G Band and the Samsung Galaxy S® 4 16-GB. These devices are normally $199.99 with a qualifying two-year wireless agreement but, with this limited time promotion, consumers can get them for $99.99**.
This promotion applies to select AT&T smartphones, and gives customers access to the latest devices at a fraction of the cost or, in the case of smartphones priced under $99.99**, for free. Some trade-in smartphones may have a trade-in value higher than $100. In this case, customers will receive the higher value.
To take advantage of this offer, customers are encouraged to visit any AT&T company-owned retail store or participating authorized dealer with their previous smartphone that is no more than three years old and in good, working condition. In AT&T company-owned stores, upon trading in their qualified smartphone, customers will receive a minimum $100 AT&T Promotion Card on-the-spot when they make an eligible smartphone purchase.***
The promotion card can be used immediately towards the purchase of a new smartphone, a connected tablet, new accessories or a wireless service bill. Offer is for a limited time only, ending Dec. 7, 2013. Promotion can change at any time.
"We're thrilled to bring back this popular trade-in offer and help AT&T customers to get their hands on the latest smartphones at a great price," said Eric Goldfeld, AVP – Marketing Management, AT&T. "With the holidays right around the corner, this is a great time to get gift shopping done early, treat yourself with a new smartphone or apply the credit to your account – your choice."
In AT&T company-owned retail stores, AT&T's standard Trade-In Program also lets customers turn in old wireless devices and receive an AT&T Promotion Card reflective of the device's trade-in value and condition. Customers can use the card to offset the cost of some of the latest wireless devices or the purchase of other AT&T products and services.**** All devices, including tablets data cards and feature phones – regardless of manufacturer or date purchased – will be considered for trade-in.
AT&T offers a great line-up of the latest smartphones that run on the AT&T 4G LTE network, the nation's fastest and most reliable network, which currently covers more than 250 million people – with plans to cover nearly 270 million people by the end of 2013.***** Meanwhile, AT&T was named America's fastest 4G LTE network, in PC Magazine's 2013 Fastest Mobile Networks study of 30 markets – and also swept the top rankings in all six U.S. regions from coast to coast: Northeast, Southeast, North-Central, South-Central, Northwest and Southwest.******
