Eligible Phones For The $650 AT&T Access More Benefit

The 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.

Fine Print

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

 Existing Customer?

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,
AT&T

Final Thoughts

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.

This seems like it could be pretty interesting for us, as we are due for a phone upgrade and our existing customers. Will check it out!

i see value in this card when iPhone 7 comes out… as i will not yet be eligible for a discounted one, this could be a way to get it for free and sell the current iPhone 6 for some good $$.

Thank you for all the updates. Any idea how long will this offer last?

You can spend the S2000 first, and get the phone later. It seems that the bonus won’t expire from the terms on citi’s website.

As an existing customer, after I start at the special link and login as requested, I’m asked to choose which line I want to “replace phone” (no other way to proceed, except add a new line). Once I make the selection, then available phone are displayed with either a 2-year contract price or ATT NEXT installment plan price. There is no left sidebar and I was unable to find a way to switch to full price for the phone purchase.

I’m stumped. Maybe worth calling in. Is it possible to order by phone?

Let us know how it goes.

I’m a student, so I don’t have much cash flow. Could I buy buy multiple giftcards worth up to $2000, then use the giftcards to pay back the card?

Chuck

Armaan, that is possible. It’s called “manufactured spending”. Google it and read up on it to learn more about it.

Will this work for the new iPhone 6s?

Excellent question. As of right now the 6s is not listed in the portal but probably because it’s a pre-order. I guess the question is how soon after the phone is released will it be available for purchase. I’m counting on it being soon. Here’s to hoping.

Still no sign of iPhone 6s. 🙁
