AT&T Offers Tempting Buy One Get One Deal For Samsung Galaxy S7 Or S7 Edge

Wireless carriers are tripping over themselves trying to lure customers with special offers and promotions, but AT&T's newest deal might be the one to beat. Ma Bell's pitch is simple—purchase either of Samsung's fancy new Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge handsets and get a free Galaxy S7 when adding a second line and buying both through AT&T's Next program.

That's a pretty sweet deal considering how expensive smartphones are these days, Samsung's new flagship Galaxy handsets included. The way this new promotion works is the first phone must be a new line or an upgrade. As for the second phone, it must be a new line and purchased on AT&T Next 24. Add both phones to a qualified plan and after three billing cycles, you'll start to receive a credit of up to $695, which is spread out over 30 monthly bill credits.

Those monthly credits completely offset the cost of the second Galaxy S7 handset (sans sales tax), or you can apply them towards a second Galaxy S7 Edge, which runs $794.99 ($26.50 per month through AT&T Next). If opting for a Galaxy S7 Edge as the second handset, AT&T's deal brings the cost down to $100, plus tax.

This deal is in addition to the up to $650 in bill credit AT&T is offering customers to switch from other wireless carriers.

"There’s never been a better time to switch to AT&T," said Glenn Lurie, president and CEO, AT&T Mobility. "You can get this buy-one, get-one offer and also get up to $650 in credits per line to help you switch to AT&T when you trade in your current smartphones and buy new ones on AT&T Next. Plus, you can get unlimited data if you have DirecTV or Uverse2. These deals are incredible."
