The fastest way to lower your AT&T bill is to join a family plan. If you are single, try and find relatives or good friends that you trust, and join their plan, because the small hassle is worth the savings. A single smartphone on AT&T with 5GB of data is $75 on ATT Next. If you had 3 people sharing 15 GB of data you would save $10 per line. If you can join up with friends or with a bigger family that you trust to pay on time and regularly, this is an excellent way to save.
At the end of a conversation with a phone rep, ask if there are any discounts you might qualify for. You’d be surprised what they’re willing to offer you, especially if they’re trying to keep you as a customer. If you’ve been with AT&T for a while, you’re more than likely to get a loyalty discount off your next month’s bill.
As an AT&T DIRECTV or U-verse TV customer, you can qualify for the AT&T Unlimited Plan for your wireless service. After 22 GB of data usage, AT&T may slow speeds. Plan charge is $60 a month plus a $10 to $40 monthly access charge per line depending on your device.
For even more savings, bundle your wireless with your existing TV service and you’ll get a $10 per month combined bill discount, plus the convenience of a single bill
AT&T offers discounts to employees of many companies and to military members. You can save significantly on your bill without changing any features on your plan. Enter your work email to check for AT&T employee discounts at the AT&T business center. This includes large and small businesses, government employees and college and university faculty and staff. The discount varies by employer. If you don’t have a work email you can also ask at a local store. Military members, DoD employees and veterans can get a 15% discount on AT&T wireless service. Vets need to go to a local AT&T store with a DD form 214, AmVets membership card or Veteran’s ID card.
AT&T’s social media team is very active in engaging with customers, and in some cases is able to work to find ways to save subscribers money.
