I just called AT&T at 800-288-2020 and asked them to match the Sprint $350 off any Samsung phone and they gave me 50% off if I purchase the cell phone outright.

I got the Samsung S8 Active for $425 + tax, with priority shipment and no activation fees.

iPhone 8 64GB - $250 ($150 as of 10/11/18)

iPhone Xs Max 64GB - $649.99
iPhone Xs Max - 256GB - $799.99
Note 9 Blue 128gb 599.99
***(FYI - tax is on full retail in CA)

ETF for new 2 year commitment is $325 per line. Activation fees typically waived and free expedited shipping.

No change in access line fee for new unlimited plans (and possibly old unlimited plans)
*I can confirm that there are no changes in the access line fees (or any other charge) for upgrading with the old unlimited plans. Upgraded both of my lines on the old unlimited plan with an iPhone X 64 gb for $549.99 each (paid upfront). - Leepoffaith

This is NOT A LOYALTY PROMO! All it is is bringing us back to supposed discounted phones BUT again slapping us with $20 access fees each line which essentially in a 2 year agreement pays the other half of the phone.

I was on an unlimited voice/text with a 3GB data plan (capped at 3GB LTE then slows down) and paying $72 a month with my foundation discount. While I did get the offer of $499.99 for the 8+ 256GB and $699.99 for the X 256GB, it requires me paying an additional $20 access fee each line. So the access fee of $40 on 2 lines x 24 = $960. The 8+ 256GB is $499.99 + $88 tax (9.25% SOCAL tax on the retail price). The X 256GB is $699.99 + $106. So both phones cost $1394. Add initial supposed LOYALTY discounted phone cost $1394 + the access fees of $960 = $2353.98.

If you had bought the phones outright at $949 for the 8+ and $1149 for the X, your total would be $2292. How can that be slick? LOL You end up paying more for both phones with this supposed LOYALTY deal!

^^^^This only applies if you're on a mobile share plan, if you're on unlimited your line access does not increase. So it makes it a great deal if you are not planning on switching (and have FAN discounts).

Did you have to argue with them or did they just gave it to you?
