AT&T on Monday confirmed it is paying customers up to $650 per phone line to switch from another carrier. The idea, of course, is to pull subscribers away from Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint.
The promotion, which starts today, is a limited-time affair that runs through the end of next month (March 31, 2016). In order to qualify for the credits, customers must do the following:
- Port a phone number (from Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint) to AT&T and activate a new line of post-post service
- Purchase a new device through AT&T Next plan
- Trade in old phone
- Submit final bill from previous carrier to AT&T
The credit itself is an AT&T Promotion Card or Visa pre-paid card.
