AT&T is now giving Next customers a $50 billing credit on new iPhone purchases when they are made through Apple either at retail stores or online. The promotion runs through the end of year, according to MacRumors.
The rules of the promotion are as follows:
- The iPhone must be purchased on an existing line as an upgrade.
- The iPhone must be financed on an AT&T Next installment plan.
- The iPhone must remain active and in good standing on Next for 45 days.
This deal is available on the purchase of a new iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
Last week, the nation’s second largest carrier introduced a longer Next 24 monthly installment program. The offering allows customers to get a new phone for no money down with 30 equal monthly payments of between $10 and $50, depending on the device purchased.
Like with AT&T’s Next 12 and Next 18 programs, a Next 24 customer can upgrade their device after a certain number of months, upon trading in the financed device in good condition. With Next 24, a trade can happen after 24 of the 30 monthly payments are completed.
