Aio Wireless, a prepaid arm of AT&T, today rolled out new service plans designed to attract multi-line users. Called “Group Save”, the plans see the provider discounting plans for accounts with 2-5 lines of service. The plans, which are available to new and existing customers, offer incentives for adding additional lines.The lines have to be on rate plans of $40 or higher, but the incremental discounts do add up nicely. Sounds a bit like Sprint‘s Framily Plans, but whatever – this is no-contract stuff we’re talking about.
Customers can create their own Group Save accounts by combining wireless lines within the same family or grouping friends who want to save collectively on their wireless plans.
- A two-line account offers a $10 discount for the second line.
- A three-line account offers a $10 discount for the second line plus a $20 discount for the third line (total savings of $30)
- Four-line and five-line accounts offer $10 discount for the second line, a $20 discount for the third line, and $30 discount for lines four and five (up to $90 savings)
AT&T is currently wrapping up acquisition of Cricket Wireless; ultimately, the Aio Wireless brand will fold into Cricket.
