Recently I mentioned how you might be able to save money on your existing AT&T service – an average of $15 a month – thanks to the company’s new Mobile Share Value plans.
Let me explain how it works and if it might apply to you.
First off, you must be OUT OF CONTRACT. This means that you are no longer under a 2 year contract and are simply paying your bill each month as usual but can cancel at any time. This is also known being “month to month.” You can call AT&T to ask them if this applies to you.
Second, you already have a smartphone. You either own your phone now because you’re done with your contract or have some sort of unlocked phone, like a Nexus from Google.
Now, find your current plan. The savings apply if you meet the requirements above and are on one of AT&T’s Mobile Share Plans.
Add up how much you’re paying total for all of your lines.
Now, take a look at the new Mobile Share Value Plans.
Add the dollar amount you see your for data allotment plus $25 for each smartphone on your plan.
For example: let’s say I currently have one phone with 2 GB of data.
My old plan: $50 + $45 = $95 a month
New value plan: $55 + $25 = $80 a month
I would save $15 a month and have the exact same service – 2 GB of data, plus unlimited texting and calling.
The good news here is that you don’t have to sign a new contract. Just call in to make the switch. Basically, if you’re happy with the smartphone you have right now and want to save some money, it’s worth the time and effort to make the switch.
The new plans start December 8, 2013. Enjoy your newfound savings!
