I agree this is potentially a very hot deal - might want to add this is $500 PER LINE!

So a little math ... assuming you have phones you want to keep.

Buy 2 x Lumia 530 on fleabay for $25ish each.

Trade in the Lumias, get the 2 x Lumia 635s @ $100 each from AT&T

Sell the Lumias on fleabay / CL for $40 each, use your existing phones.

Cost: Lumias $250 ($100 + $100 + $25 + $25), activation $30, sales tax on phones $20 = $300

Income: $80 from selling lumias, $600 in line credit, $400 in trade in cards.

Endure BS overpriced 3GB or 6GB plan for 6 months, then switch away to the next best deal!

Apologies for any calculation errors, but this seemed the best way forward.

Hah - busted .. my second post ever though so I'll cry newbie!

i checked and for the 3GB 2 line plan it's 90 a month plus taxes - 80 after they give you the combo directv / wireless credit. The phone cost gets worked in too, but basically it's 100 each for the phones any way you slice it.

i only call BS as my cricket plan is 2.5GB each for $70 a month flat - no taxes.

So call it a $60 overpayment for the 6 months and therefore ... stil a hot deal in my mind!

(PS - CRICKET does not qualify for the promotion - I will be switching to T-mobile for 1 day and them porting in to AT&T)

I'm just hoping that AT&T won't dick up DirecTV like they did to their cellular network.

Does anybody know if ATT will get the moto G 3rd gen or is motorola only selling it unlocked like the X? However, you could get the 2nd get for 5.67 a month and take advantage of this deal, but the 3rd would be so much better.

Is this deal only available by calling and not online because that wouldn't almost kill it.

Edit: Answered my own question, here's some detail:


You can sign up online here: www.att.com/bundleofsavings


Arguably the best deal will be to purchase the Lumia 635 on Next 24, which comes out to about $3.50 a month. Switched two lines over with 1 GB of data, after credits and veterans discount, comes out to essentially free phone service for the next 14 months. Purchased Moto G 3rd Gen and Zenfone 2 to use instead of the Lumias.

I called customer care they said any smart phone is eligible

But online terms are different


Interestingly this offer is in store also as per terms.. May be its easier to do in stores as they are supposed to give instant credit


Trade-in Credit: Provided either an instant credit or a promotion card. Private label AT&T Promotion Card (“Card”) issued by MetaBank™ or CenterState Bank of Florida NA, via a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc. In AT&T owned-stores provided an instant credit to spend that day or Card. If do not spend entire instant credit, balance may be used to pay wireless bill or get Card.
