How to get $650 in monthly bill credits
Promotion details
Effective September 9, 2016 and ending September 25, 2016 (through September 30, 2016 in Puerto Rico), new and existing AT&T customers can get up to $650 in monthly bill credits when they trade-in an eligible iPhone.
  • Must purchase or upgrade to a new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7s Plus with AT&T Next®, AT&T Next Every YearSM, or Equipment Installment Plan, with qualified service (for new customers, a minimum for $50 on Mobile Share Advantage. For existing customers may add it to an eligible postpaid wireless plan that includes voice and data).
  • Must trade in an eligible iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone 6s Plus that is paid off, fully functional and in good condition through one of the methods outlined below.
  • This offer excludes AT&T Next upgrade trade-ins. If you have an eligible iPhone on any AT&T Next installment plan, you'll need to pay off the remaining installment balance prior to trade-in.
  • Once you receive your new iPhone you'll have 30-days to get the promotional trade-in value for your eligible iPhone. The trade-in promotion code is required for online trade-in. The promotion code is valid for 30 days after receiving the new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, even if you receive the iPhone after September 25, 2016.
  • Note: Once your trade-in is received and verified, your bill credits will start within 3 bill cycles. You will need to pay your bill in full, remain active and in good-standing on your installment agreement to continue to receive your credits towards your installment payments. If you cancel service, your device balance (up to $970 based on which iPhone model you buy) will be due.
  • Remove personal information and security features from trade-in device. Before trading in your device, you must remove all personal information and disable security features, including user locks and Find My iPhone. It is vital to complete this process to prevent your trade-in from being unacceptable.

Quote :
Trade-in process
To process an eligible trade-in visit an AT&T store, contact your AT&T account representative, or go to tradein.att.com to complete these steps.

Note: If you received trade-in instructions in the box with your new iPhone, follow the steps below instead to take advantage of this offer.
  • From the Start a Trade-in tab, search for and select your eligible iPhone model for trade-in.
  • Select Click to continue your trade. The trade-in value shown will not match the $650 promotional value at this step.
  • Answer the questions about the condition of the iPhone and enter:
  • IMEI/ESN/Serial #
  • Mobile phone number
  • Promotion code FALL2016TRADE
  • iPhone 7 trade-in
  • Once you click Accept and Continue, the trade-in value will be displayed as $0. If you meet the requirements for this promotion, you’ll receive up to $650 in monthly bill credits. Follow the prompts to confirm the trade-in value.
  • Once we receive and evaluate the trade in, you'll get a confirmation email.
  • Separate shipping materials and a postage paid label will be automatically sent to you. Follow the instructions on how to send in the iPhone.
  • When the trade-in is approved, you’ll start receiving monthly bill credits within 3 billing cycles. The monthly bill credit will be applied toward your installment payment.
Prepare your trade-in
  • Remove all security features including user locks and Find My iPhone or set the password to 0000. If your phone is sent to us locked, it will not qualify as a trade-in.
  • Remove confidential, proprietary, or personal information from the device. Visit att.com/devicesupport for instructions.
  • Reset to factory settings. See owner’s manual or manufacturer’s website for instructions.
  • Remove the SIM card, memory card, and any accessories. Leave the battery in the phone.

Note from CSR and Store Manager: "If you decide to upgrade during your Next plan (at either 12 months for the Next 12 or 24 months for the Next 24) your credits will cease." So if you upgrade in 12, you will only receive ? $325 in credits for your trade in and ? $325 will be forfeited. Frown

Quote from Fireguyy View Post :
Yea I'm feeling the same way, especially the fact that your just supposed to get an email, and then bring your trade-in to the store and the discount will magically appear on your bill.

It feels too much like I'm just supposed to take their word, and then there's this line "Promotion, terms, and restrictions subject to change and may be modified or terminated at any time without notice."

I'm scared they are just baiting the unlimited folks to screw us over.


***Notes for those who are thinking about buying a used iPhone 6 and trade it in for the promo****

1) If eBay listing says 'locked to AT&T', it generally means that the phone has installment payments left and is tied to an AT&T Next account. This means you will likely not be able to trade the phone in.
The installments are the sole reason why AT&T iphones are being sold as 'Locked' to AT&T. If the phones did not have payments on them, the sellers would have been able to just go to AT&T unlock webpage, complete the unlock process and sell the phones as 'Unlocked'.
However, since AT&T will not unlock phones with pending payments, the sellers just sell those phones as AT&T LOCKED.

2) If you are spending $300 to buy an iPhone 6 for the promo, know what you're getting into.

$300-$350 for iPhone 6 used
$20 Upgrade Fee
$129 2nd year warranty opportunity cost (since you pay with 'bill credits', you will not get 2nd year warranty from credit card and may need Applecare for 2nd year warranty)
If you weren't going to buy with a credit card that offers extended warranty, DISREGARD THIS STATEMENT..

Note, you are locking yourself to the carrier for 2 full years to get the $650 credits back.



Addtional $95 Savings through Sams Club
Sams Club [samsclub.com] is also offering activation waived ($20) through Sep 16-18 and $75 GC through Sep 25, for AT&T Customers along with the trade in offer

WARNING: If you placed the order on att.com on the last day (9/25), go and check your order status and look for Order date, because it may have slipped by one day. It's likely to be 9/26 on the webpage. If that's the case, you are NOT eligible for this offer (I've confirmed with AT&T customer rep). Unreasonable, but this is how it works.

Doesnt mention anything about having to add a new line. just a order a new phone. It actually says you can add it to your existing lines.

"Wireless: Monthly postpaid voice & data req'd (existing customers can add to elig. current plans)"

It's on their main page.

Looks like you don't get credit until you turn in your old phone which makes sense. It's basically $650 / 24 or 30 depending on your plan.

So a $27 "next every year" phone is effectively $0 in cost per month assuming you keep the line active for 24 months. If you cancel I assume it's cancellation fee + 650/remaining months?

From what it looks to me, they changed their offer on the iPhone page, it used to say (9/15/16) for new lines, now it says 9/30/16, I think I'll wait a bit before I proceed.
