As always, though, you have to pay attention to the fine print, and there’s a lot of it. Like Verizon, AT&T has increased their offer to “up to $650,” and that’s calculated based on how nice of a phone you have and how much you still owe on it.
“The value of your AT&T Promotion Visa Prepaid Card will be determined by the amount of the Early Termination Fee or device payment plan balance noted on your final bill,” AT&T explains, “minus the Buyback value of your trade-in, up to $650.” Let’s say that you still owe $400 on your phone, and AT&T determines the trade-in value on your phone to be $300. That means AT&T will issue you a bill credit or prepaid debit card of $100, which you can only use to make payments to AT&T.
Is that for you? Maybe, if you really dislike your carrier and live in an area with strong AT&T coverage. Engadget notes that you can combine this deal with a buy one, get one free deal on Samsung Galaxy devices. Both offers end on March 31.
