AT&T Trade-In Promo Knocks $100 Off Latest Smartphones

If you’re an AT&T customer looking to upgrade to a new smartphone, now would be a good time to do so.

Starting tomorrow, the carrier is running a limited-time promotion during which customers can trade in their old smartphone for $100 off the purchase of a new device, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, BlackBerry Z10 and HTC One.


To be eligible for the discount, the smartphone must be no more than three years old and still in good working condition. The carrier said some handsets might even have a higher trade-in value than $100, and if so, the customer will receive a further discount.

Trade-ins will be accepted at AT&T stores and authorized dealers, and all credits are offered on the spot.

This is just the latest move by a carrier to retain and woo new customers. In April, Sprint and Virgin Mobile offered a $100 credit to people who switched their phone number over to their service.

AT&T did not reveal how long the promotion would last, but if I were you, I’d jump on the deal while you can.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
