eginning May 1, consumers who trade in their current smartphone to AT&T* will be eligible to receive at least $100 off the purchase of a new smartphone, including the new Samsung Galaxy® S 4, BlackBerry® Z10 or 32 GB HTC One®. These devices are normally $199.99 with a qualifying two-year agreement** but, with this limited time promotion, they will be available for $99.99.

This promotion applies to any smartphone AT&T sells, and gives customers access to the latest devices at a fraction of the cost or, in the case of smartphones priced under $99.99**, for free. To take advantage of this offer, customers are encouraged to visit any AT&T company-owned retail store or participating authorized dealer with their previous smartphone that is no more than three years old and in good, working condition. In stores, upon trading in their old phone, customers will receive the $100 credit on-the-spot and can use it immediately. ***

Some trade-in phones may have a value higher than $100. In this case, customers will receive the credit at the higher value.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

11/13/2013 Update ---- This deal is BACK!. http://www.att.com/gen/press-room...le-devices

6/11/2013 Update ---- This deal is DEAD. Phones are back to their recycle or minimal trade-in value

Go on their trade in website and print out the FAQs under the "Help" tab.

Can I trade in my device(s) at an AT&T Store?

Yes, you can trade-in your device(s) that you no longer need and use the instant in-store reward towards a new device, product, or service at all of our company owned store locations.
5/9/2013 Update
ATT Corporate Store Reps received emails from Corporate dictating that customers are only allowed 1 trade in per visit. In order to trade multiple phones, you must either visit multiple stores or find an employee willing to take in multiple phones in 1 visit.

Still alive. Find stores that don't lie to you.

Ignore the merged OP. The real Slickdeal is here:

Which phones qualify for $100?

Confirm that the phones you are turning in/buying qualify for $100 before you go to the store.
https://tradein-program.att.com/h...5?c=en-us?

You will get the exact value shown in store. If it shows $5, you will get $5.

Only the phone + battery + back cover are required. Charger and/ or data cable are not.


Do I have to be an ATT customer?

Trade-in's - YMMV. I had to start a gophone account (paid only $10 and got a free SIM) and used that.

Buying full retail devices - at corporate stores YMMV. Some required no account. While others required at least a gophone account. Promo cards can be used at att.com or through 1800/phone. Ask to sign up for month-to-month service (credit check will be run). You have 3 days to cancel and get all your money back. Wink



Where can the promotional giftcards used at?

Promotional cards must be used at B&M corporate stores, att.com, or over the phone only.

What can I purchase with these?
Things you can buy:
  • ATT wireless bill
  • ATT Uverse bill
  • iphones
  • ipads
  • any smartphones
  • gophones
  • prepaid minutes

I added pics of some eligible blackberry's, the optimus elite along with the receipt showing the $10 FB coupon discount

So what you are saying is i buy seven 50$ phones from RS and get seven 100$ gift cards from ATT store by trade-in. Then i purchase iphone 5 from att.com after stacking all 7 gift cards? are you sure we can stack 7 gift cards in one purchase?
Online - your order will be held and you will have to call in to pay the rest
Corporate store - I only did a max of 5 (each had hundreds of dollars on the cards).
Phones sales - should be same as corporate.

You don't have to sign a contract. That is ATT giving an example.
  1. Buy the Radioshack LG Optimus Elite $49. (use freely available $10 off $30 coupon)
  2. Trade in for $100 gift card.
  3. There is no step 3.

Pay full retail and then use multiple promotional gift cards to pay the balance.
Thank you OP - thumbs up from me.. I will try tomorrow...if it works; I will come back and give you more thumbs up!!!

OP! just to confirm one more time ! you walk into a ATT store with an old smart phone in your hand; you hand the phone to them and they give you $100 ATT Gift Card.. no contracts;no new service or nothing ? Correct???

Can someone explain why this thread getting Thumbs Down ? if it is the case; it is great ! if not? yes- Thumbs Down big time..
YES. Some corporate stores will be YMMV but all the ones near me required nothing. Multiple phones with one promo card with $500 dollars on a few.

You have to make sure the phone qualifies for the $100 trade-in i.e. working and <3 years old. Use the online trade in calculator and it will tell you what phones qualify:
https://tradein-program.att.com/h...p5?c=en-us

You can buy prepaid smartphones like at radioshack that qualify and are ~$50.

Are you an AT&T customer/does one need to be an AT&T customer to take advantage?

Do you have a link to the 10 off 30 coupon?

All I saw was the get 10 when spending 30.

I bought 7 phones from RS already and got 7 coupons for 10 bucks each. Going to wait till I can use them and get 7 more. (Must wait 3 days to use coupon)

Problem with the RS coupon is that the coupons cannot be combined.

This is a smoking hot deal btw.

Here is my experience: First store combined everything onto one card, second store gave me separate cards for each phone. Yes you can combine cards to pay for items. Yes you can use them online, and Yes you can use them to pay for your bill. Confirmed this with CSR at stores and also just paid my monthly bill with promotional card.

Did you just buy the sim card or did you need to buy the GoPhone as well?

One more question, how do we know whether an att store in a mall is a corporate store or not? Is there anyway we can find a corporate store using att store locator? Allmy store nearby says they are"AT&T Company Stores". Are they the same?

AT&T Company Store = corporate; standalone corporate are the best for this.


AT&T Authorized Retailer = indirect = may still do trade-ins but the credit they give you is not the type I am describing and will be limited to where you can use it i.e. most likely that store and right then. YMMV and may still be worth it. Some locations will not do any trade-ins.

Nice thanks, looks like I may have missed out on 70 bucks Frown

Looks like the coupon is unique though would have to sign up for multiple facebook accounts.

Wonder if you would get the 10 off 10 coupon if you used the 10 off 40 coupon to purchase.

That would be pretty slick. May have to give it a try later.

Oh just a heads up even though the RS site says the elite is only on sale until 5/4 I saw a sign in one store that the price is valid until June 1st

so can I just take 5 of those radioshack LG phones and get $500 in gift card? I am an AT&T customer but do they just take the phone and give you gift card that easily? sound unrealistic

You would get a $10 of $10 if your subtotal was still 30.00 and above. However, you can only use one coupon per transaction plus the $10 of $10 isn't active until 3 days after you get it. The facebook coupon can be used immediately.
