Exclusive new phone offer!
Plus, earn 3X points on purchases at AT&T and at retail and travel websites

https://www.citi.com/credit-cards...ds&afc=14Z

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!

FAQs:

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:
Code:
http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/attaccesspromo.html
It's basically the same stuff you can look when going through att.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?

Has anyone got the credit by not turning on the phone (kept box unopened) and just having the AT&T service active for 15 days or more?
After spending the $2000 of course.
There is no need to open the box if you are going to flip the phone. The line is active the day AT&T ships your order.
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.
3) How to unlock?
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?
NO. http://slickdeals.net/f/7817363-citi-s-new-at-t-to-co-brand-new-card-upto-650-credit?v=1&p=76544409&src=SiteSearch#post76544409

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.


Or here --> http://tinypic.com/r/20f6c83/8

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!

Other information:

Activation/Upgrade fee information (none for existing members who buy off contract):
http://www.att.com/esupport/artic...kh2dThNYdU

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)

Full price on att will be at least $200 more than the Craigslist/Ebay price. So effectively the cash back would be $300

bit confused by the retail purchases part, so i looked up the t&c: "Retail websites are websites that sell goods directly to the consumer through an online website and include department store websites, specialty store websites, warehouse store websites and boutique websites. Travel websites are websites that allow you to book travel and include online travel agencies, hotel websites and airline websites."

so is this only department stores, upscale places? or basically all internet purchases? because 3% back on that ain't bad at all..although the break-even point for the $95 af is fairly high..

In the market for a GS6. I was just going to do the 2 year upgrade, but this would keep me contract free... $95 annual fee might just be worth it.

On 2nd thought, maybe not. I could pay $216.49 ($199.99 + tax) with the upgrade I was considering. (no upgrade fee for me)

Or I'd pay a $95 (annual fee) + $34.99 (overage for GS6 - price is $684.99 - $650 cr @ ATT) + $56.51 (taxes on $684.99) = $186.50.

Not really a deal after all.

The whole point of BYOD is to not pay the subsidized rate for your service. $199.99 is the subsidized rate and you'll pay well, well over the difference in your monthly plan. Switch to a BYOD plan and save a ton.

that is correct.. your monthly "phone" fee is 40 bucks when on contract. instead of the 15 a month it would be with BYOD or the next program.. 25 extra a month for 2 years is 600 and the 199 .. You would still be at 800 bucks for the phone regardless. They will get the money for the phone one way or another.. It did not used to be like this.. the cost of the plan was the cost of the plan and then you would get the discount on the phone for the contract.

you will pay an extra 25 bucks a month for being on contract. The monthly "phone" charge will be $40 a month when on contract instead of $15.00 a month when you BYOD or are on the next program.
25x $40 is $600.00 plus the 199.00 contract upgrade cost. Which is 799.00 total over the 2 years. Either way you pay for the phone one is spread out over 2 years or do this deal pay for the phone and get the 650 credit.
