T-Mobile has a big Uncarrier 4.0 announcement planned for next week, but today AT&T has attempted to take some of the steam out of T-Mo’s news by making a big reveal of its own.
AT&T has announced a new offer that will give T-Mobile customers up to $450 in credit for switching carriers. The offer breaks down like this: T-Mobile customers that trade in their existing smartphone can receive up to $250 for their unit, and folks that agree to sign up for an AT&T Next Plan, buy a phone at full retail price or bring their own device to AT&T are eligible for an additional $200 Switcher Bill Credit. Both credits are available today, Jan. 3, and will run for a limited time.
T-Mobile is rumored to be prepping a switcher offer of its own for next week that will see it pay the Early Termination Fee of customers that agree to become members of the Magenta Army. AT&T’s deal is the one in the spotlight now, though, and while not every consumer will receive the full $450 credit that AT&T touts in its announcement, the offer is still likely to pique the interest of some T-Mobile subscribers. If you’re a T-Mo customer that’s interested in changing your carrier allegiance to AT&T in exchange for some cold, hard credit, you can hit up the AT&T link below to learn more about this new offer.
