Plus, earn 3X points on purchases at AT&T and at retail and travel websites
Here's how the new phone offer works:
• Spend $2,000 in purchases with your AT&T Access More Card within 3 months of account opening.
• Use your card, now or later, to buy a new phone from AT&T, at full price and with no annual contract.
• Make your phone purchase using your unique phone offer link (which will be provided to you), activate and maintain service with AT&T for 15 days. If you buy a new phone now it will count toward the $2,000 in qualifying purchases!
• Citi will then credit your AT&T Access More Card account for the cost of the phone up to $650 (exclusive of taxes, shipping, fees & wireless service).
Earn 3X ThankYou® Points for every $1 you spend
on purchases made online at retail and travel websites.2
Earn 3X points for every $1 you spend
on products & services directly purchased from AT&T.2
Earn 1X points for every $1 you spend
on other purchases.2
10,000 Anniversary bonus points
after you spend $10,000 in the prior cardmembership year.2
Annual Fee: $95.1
Purchase Rate: 14.99% - 22.99% variable APR based on your creditworthiness1
Basically you get upto $650 back on new phone purchase.
Annual Fee: $95.1 NOT WAIVED first year which brings down the cash back on new phone to $555.
Still a great deal if you are in the market for new phone!

1) What is the list of qualifying phones?
This is the not-so-special Special link for the phones. You get this link from citi.com:
2) Is it mandatory to use the purchased device on att? or is it sufficient just to leave the line active for 15 days?
Now, If you sell your phone as unlocked you may want to remove pre-installed AT&T sim and for that you have to open.
Again, Your service is active when you get the phone.
To SIM-unlock through AT&T's unlock portal, you need to have AT&T service for 60 days. Even though the phone is fully paid for, it won't take the IMEI before that. --> Actually, I just received mine and requested an unlock. I got the unlock code the next day. I'm not an AT&T customer yet. I'll activate my SIM when I'm done with my current month of T-mobile prepaid.
Unlock request link: https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/#/
4) Can I get discounts?
As far as I know, there are no extra promotions that can be applied when buying the phone in full price. Promotions such as carrier transfer credit, free tablet, free accessory and such.
5) Where is the unique offer link?
I just received my At&t access more card in the mail and activated it, but, I can't find my unique phone offer link on my account to click to purchase a phone from AT&T.
I didn't receive an e-mail from citibank neither.
6) if I cancel after 15 days, will my bill be prorated?
Update! Thanks to "Woolfman72" he provided a photo of his account with the link.
My account doesn't have it...maybe because my account was converted from another Citi account...Am I the only one with this problem? See attached photo.

Note: Phone purchase link does appear even if you attach this new card to your already existing Citi Credit Card (s) login account. It took a few hours I think (maybe next day). I would say log out of the account a few times, log back in, and drill down in to your Citi AT&T Access More Account's main page. Link should be right under 'Account Details' section and right below where account number is displayed.
UPGRADE USING YOUR TABLET Line - FYI, the upgrade works on a line assigned to a tablet or car....since the tablet is a Bring Your Own Device, I happily found an "extra" line to upgrade!
Activation/Upgrade fee information (none for existing members who buy off contract):
Remember: The balance on the card (minus the phone price from AT&T) is due each month otherwise Interest will be charged at 21%...only the phone purchase price is on 0%APR for 7 months (in most cases)
