I just got off the phone with AT&T wireless and they offered $35 statement credit for next 3 months ($105), plus 6 months of free unlimited text messages ($120 value) just for discussing possible switch over to T-Mobile.

Get your credit and decide for yourself if you want to switch over to T-Mobile in 3 months.

Accepting the promotional credits does NOT bind you into any sort of contract.

YMMV!

Good luck and get your credit now!


I called again and got an early upgrade on my line! I still had a year left on my contract!

Note: Easier to get early upgrade to Galaxy Note 3 compared to iPhone 5S

Number to call: 800.331.0500 or 611 from your AT&T phone or 866.907.3480

Enter wireless phone number (or press 1 if for the phone you're calling from, 2 if for a different number)

Select Option: 4 (Accounts)
Select Option: 5 (Cancellations)


Select option for Cancellations. Explain to the representative that T-Mobile is offering promotion to switch over to their network (cheaper plan, they'll pay the ETF, etc) and you'd be willing to stick around with AT&T if they would extend an offer for you.

Seems like $35 statement credit per month for 3 months is pretty standard (They have been trained to offer this). - $105 total statement credit.

Plus 6 months of free unlimited text messaging ($120) value.

$149 one-time credit, FREE S5, 2nd S5 for $99. 8 months remaining in contract.
Nothing instant offered on 3 months left in contract; instead offered $100 off per line for upgrade for which I'm eligible now. Also offered to waive upgrade fee. Declined this offer (for now).

Question: How are these statement credits determined?
Answer: I had a really friendly retentions rep who said that there was a formula they use to calculate how much they would offer. She said things like how much you spend, how long you've had an account with AT&T, FAN discounts, etc. all factored into the offer. She said most people are given $35 x 3 months like I got.

Question: If I don't have a text plan, would adding free text messaging for 6 months extend the contract to 2 years again?
Answer: No, it would not.

Question: Is anyone on a family plan able to get unlimited family texting for $10/month?
Answer: ??

Tip: If you want an upgrade, make sure you are speaking to a retentions rep who will have to ask her manager for an override. If they tell you no without asking a manager first, they are just going by what's in the system. Apparently these CSR reps just chat online with their managers who will need to enter an override code during the order process.

I don't see a reason why not. The agent told me that they were all trained recently to offer this promo to counter T-Mobile offer. If agent is stiff, ask for a supervisor.

I agree the amount varies but almost all callers will get some sort of a promo. At least you save some money while you mull over switching to T-Mobile

Good question. I just have one line and it's a smart phone (iPhone with unlimited data plan).

I think you'll have better leverage. I would def ask promotion for each line!

Just called In. Got $30 per month for 3 months, she wouldn't give me the $35 offer... But not bad for just a quick phone call. Thanks op!

Ps- rep kept trying to convince me to change my plan, etc. I finally just said "I want to keep everything the same on a data and voice minutes, just get a better price..." Then she understood what I was asking for and offered me the $30 off..
