Featured deal: Save $1,000 on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 with a trade-in
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the phone of the moment and is likely to be the best foldable device available this year. The eye-watering price tag was inevitable, but you can save up to $1,000 on the phone from AT&T with this trade-in deal. Over the life of your plan, the cost of the phone drops to $799.99 ($1,000 off).
You might assume that the maximum trade-in value would require trading in a flagship device, but you’d be wrong. There’s a wide selection of phones that attract the full discount — supposedly any phone which is worth more than $95. Examples include the Samsung Galaxy S9, the Google Pixel 4, and the OnePlus 7T. More budget phones can still attract a $350 price drop.

The deal requires you to sign up for an eligible unlimited plan for 36 months. You’ll receive the trade-in value in the form of bill credits each month. The credits will start within three bills.

Trade-in and get the Galaxy S21 for free
The Galaxy S21 is one of the best phones around right now and we ranked the S21 series as the best Samsung smartphone too. This flagship device is great for the everyday user and packs enough punch to handle nearly anything you’ll want to throw at it. Right now, you can trade in your old phone and get the Samsung Galaxy S21 for free.
The best part of this deal is that, unlike some carriers, the full $800 discount on the S21 range is available for trading in a wide variety of phones — not just upgrading a six-month-old model. For instance, switching up your old Samsung Galaxy S9 unlocks the full value.

The Galaxy S21 blends premium and practical in a way that most users will likely enjoy. The device has a great design, a three-camera system on the back, the Snapdragon 888 processor, and a 6.2-inch dynamic AMOLED display. While the battery life may leave a little to be desired, the S21 is absolutely capable of standing shoulder to shoulder with the best flagship phones on the market like the Google Pixel 5 and iPhone 12.
Save $700 on the iPhone 12 series with most trade-ins
If you’ve been looking for a good opportunity to upgrade to the latest iPhone then this might be your opportunity. Even if you trade in something as old as the iPhone 8 you can still get $700 off any of the iPhone 12 series when you also include an unlimited line.

By way of example, this allows you to get the 64GB model of the standard iPhone 12 for a total payment of just $100 ($700 off), or the highest storage model of the iPhone 12 Pro Max for as little as $19 per month ($19 off). Also included in the deal are the iPhone 12 Pro and the Microsoft Surface Duo. The latter is free with a trade-in.
Considering the iPhone 12 series is still less than a year old, being able to grab it for $700 off using a trade-in is pretty sweet. With a different design and a MagSafe magnetic charging ring, the iPhone 12 series is a noticeable step up from older models.
Save big on smartphones without a trade-in
So far we’ve outlined how you can get a top Samsung or Apple flagship with a trade-in, but not everyone owns a device ready to swap. AT&T acknowledges this and offers a range of discounts on other great smartphones without requiring a switch-up. If you’ll commit to an unlimited line then you can get a cut-price on your new handset.
The phones you can save on are mainly from the same two rival brands, but they include the likes of the popular Samsung Galaxy S20 FE and the impressive iPhone SE. The iPhone SE offers the A13 Bionic chip and up to 256GB of storage, but it will cost you only $5 per month if you commit to a new line.
Here’s a rundown of the savings that you can make:
- iPhone 11 for $10 per month (down from $17)
- Samsung Galaxy A12 for $1 per month (down from $5)
- Motorola Moto G Stylus for $5 per month (down from $7)
- Samsung Galaxy A32 5G for $5 per month (down from $8)
- Samsung Galaxy S20 FE for $10 per month (down from $19)
- Apple iPhone SE (2020) for $5 per month (down from $11)

Get a free Wi-Fi hotspot
There are AT&T deals available on hotspots, too. Right now, you can pop the Unite Express 2 into your pocket for just the cost of your data plan. It’s not a 5G-ready hotspot, but the retail price is normally $145, so this could be a great way to get yourself connected while you wait for a faster connection to come along.

Get a $150 reward card when you upgrade to AT&T fiber internet
How does 300Mbps superfast fiber internet sound? If you never want to lag again online then you can upgrade your broadband to AT&T Fiber, and experience vastly quicker speeds than cable.
Pricing is $35 per month, but there’s an extra sweetener available right now. When you pull the trigger on the upgrade, you’ll also get a $150 reward card for some extra spending. Hit the button below to find out if it’s available in your area.
Save $330 when you buy a second Apple Watch
The AT&T deals don’t stop at phones and internet services. Wearables are on offer from the provider too, with the opportunity to save $330 on Apple Watch models if you jump through the right hoops.
The offer involves buying two smartwatches and adding a new line of service so that both are on a plan. If you follow these steps then you’ll get a $330 discount on the second purchase, making it free in some cases. You can choose from the 40 or 44mm, and Nike or standard variants of the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch SE.

Save 30% when you buy three accessories
For a limited time, you can save 30% of your bill when you buy three accessories from AT&T. All you need to do is add your three accessories to your cart and you’ll see the discount reflected at the checkout.

This deal isn’t quite as good as it sounds, since a lot of big brands are excluded, such as Apple, Google, and Samsung. Nevertheless, it’s worth seeing what you can save on. Cases, chargers, and screen protectors are all good options to complement your device.
A few accessories have standalone deals on them too. Check them out via the widget below.
Extra savings for America’s best
On top of the other AT&T deals, you can save a bit more on your wireless plan if you’re in one of several professions. Military, veterans, first responders, nurses, physicians, and teachers can all benefit from this offer, which provides a 25% discount on any of the unlimited plans.
For example, a police officer can sign up for the AT&T Unlimited Starter plan for just $48.75 per month, rather than the usual $65. As with the rest of the population, this price per line drops further if you add multiple lines to your account.
Save 25% on the Unlimited Plus plan with AutoPay
Along with the three unlimited plans that AT&T offers to any old punter, there’s a special, online-only plan called Unlimited Plus. It’s the cheapest way to go unlimited with the carrier if you use AutoPay, as that gives you a 33% discount. The price drops from $75 per month to just $50 per month.
The Unlimited Plus plan offers unlimited data which may slow above 22GB of use per month. You also get unlimited texts and calls, including to Mexico and Canada, and unlimited texts to over 230 countries. 10GB mobile hotspot features, as does 5G access, HD video streaming, 100GB personal cloud storage, and more.
