AT&T Offering Free Galaxy S6 to Samsung Buyers

February 11, 2016 - Written By Kishalaya Kundu

Earlier this week, Sprint started offering a $200 trade-in discount for Galaxy S6 buyers, and now, it is the turn of AT&T, the nation’s second-largest wireless carrier to come out with an offer on the same device. According to the latest promo that’s just been announced by AT&T, people buying any of Samsung’s 2015 flagships will be eligible to get either a Galaxy S6 (32 GB model) or a Galaxy S6 Active for free. The smartphones on which the offer is applicable, include the Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5, alongside the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Active handsets themselves. For those not fancying the Galaxy S6 as the free device, AT&T says it will give $595 in 30 monthly bill credits of $19.84 each, as long as the primary smartphone happens to be one from the above list.

So for AT&T users wanting a new flagship smartphone, this may be as good a time as any to jump onto the bandwagon. The carrier, however, has an extensive set of terms and conditions that its users  have to satisfy before they can get their free smartphone or the near-$600 bill credit. AT&T does not specifically mention how long the promo will run, but does say that it will be a limited-time offer. The carrier does however, say that the offer will be available until March 31st in Puerto Rico. Also, residents of Rhode Island, Connecticut and Miami Dade will not be eligible for the promo, although AT&T doesn’t say why. In the rest of the country, subscribers will have to opt for AT&T Next 24, with the minimum qualifying plan being $70 per month on Mobile Share Value.

Recently, offers are pouring out on 2015 flagship smartphones, now that many of the big brands are believed to be on their way towards launching their next-gen flagship smartphones. That being the case, the Galaxy S6 is not the only device that has been the subject of promo offers in recent times. Last month, Sprint started offering a $200 trade-in discount towards the LG G4, now that the G5 is being readied by the South Korean company for a launch this year.
