Eligible Phones For The $650 AT&T Access More Benefit
Citi recently launched a new credit card the AT&T Access More card, the sign up bonus on that card was that if you purchase a full price phone from AT&T and are on a postpaid contract with them and spend $2,000 within the first three months (including the purchase price of the phone) Citi would credit your AT&T Access More card with up to a $650 statement credit.
The fine print stated that they would provide you with a special link that needed to be used to receive this $650 credit. I really dislike fine print such as that, as there is no way of knowing what phones will be offered and at what price point before you sign up. Making it impossible to value the benefit.
What’s Actually Available
Thankfully we know now what phones are available, several readers (and LakeShoreDrive on FT) have confirmed for me the special link is: http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/attaccesspromo.html. If you click that your a new customer you’ll be redirected to: http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices/cellphones.html which has a list of the eligible phones and their prices. Make sure you then select no annual contract in the left sidebar. Below are some of the more popular phones and their prices:
- iPhone 6:
- 16 GB: $649.99
- 64 GB: $749.99
- 128 GB: $849.99
- Samsung Galaxy S6
- 32 GB: $684.99
- 64 GB: $784.99
- 128 GB: $884.99
If you’re an existing customer you can use the existing customer link and you’ll be taken to the same sales page mentioned above. According to FT user laergan after your purchase you’ll receive the following e-mail:
Here’s more information if you’re replacing your phone.
This purchase will not affect any existing contract. Your upgrade eligibility will not change.
Here’s more information if you’re replacing your phone and are on the AT&T NextSM plan.
This purchase will not affect any existing contract. Your upgrade eligibility will not change. You will continue to be on your AT&T Next installment plan and will still be responsible for the remaining monthly charges.
Thank you for choosing us,
Given that we know signing up for a new post paid service with AT&T will result in an additional hard pull, I’m not really seeing a lot of value in this sign up bonus anymore. If your an existing customer this could still be a good bet, but I’d mainly be interested in this card for the potential 3x on online purchases.
