AT&T Prepaid has launched a new limited-time promotional offer.  Uncovered by Dennis Bournique, the plan is offering customers unlimited talk, text, and data with the first 8GB at 4G LTE data speeds each month for $25/month.  The catch?  In order to take advantage of the offer, subscribers will have to pay for service 12 months in advance at a total upfront cost of $300 plus applicable taxes for your location.  The offer is scheduled to be available until 10/21/2019 (Update 11/4/19 -the offer is still available and has been extended with no specific end date listed).

Additional Plan Details And Fine Print

This is a 12-month plan but it is not quite an annual plan.  AT&T says the plan will renew every 30 days for 12 months which amounts to 360 days of service.

The plan being discounted regularly sells for $40/month.  Other features included with the plan are unlimited calling to Mexico and Canada and free talk, text, and data roaming while in either country.  The plan also offers subscribers free text messaging to over 100 countries.  Mobile hotspot is included.  Unused LTE data from the monthly plan carries over for one billing cycle.  Customers that run out of high-speed data can add more at a rate of $10 for 1GB and $20 for 3GB good for 30 days.  Add-on data does not carry over.

Video streaming "Stream Saver" is also included with the plan.  Customers have the option to turn Stream Saver on or off.  With it on, content that AT&T recognizes as video will automatically be reduced to a maximum resolution of about 480p.

Sponsored Data is another available feature with the plan.  Sponsored data allows subscribers to browse, stream and view content from data sponsors without impacting a customer's high-speed data balance.  The feature can be disabled at any time, however, customers will have data deducted from their monthly balance when they view content that would otherwise be sponsored.

In addition to the multi-month plan promo, AT&T Prepaid is also offering a $15/month discount on both of its unlimited LTE data plans.  The $65 plan that does not include mobile hotspot and has video streaming limited to 1.5Mbps or 480p gets reduced to $50/month with the auto-pay discount applied.  The plan also includes always-on data prioritization, so anytime the network gets congested, data speeds may be temporarily slowed.  The $85 plan that includes 10GB of mobile hotspot, and the ability to stream in HD costs $70/month with the auto-pay discount applied.  As a bonus, the plan also comes with 12 free months of WatchTV.  WatchTV gives subscribers access to 35+ live streaming TV channels.  Data prioritization is applied to this plan after more than 22GB of data has been consumed in a month.

Editor's Take

Multi-month plans have been gaining in popularity in the MVNO marketplace for good reason.  They benefit the consumer with cheaper pricing and benefit the provider by reducing customer churn.  This is the first time that I can recall a major carrier brand offering such a multi-month plan.  At $15/month off of the plans regular monthly price ($180/year), the savings being provided here is a big deal. It makes AT&T prepaid the cheapest major carrier prepaid plan on the market to offer at least 8GB of data.  It also puts the plan in direct competition with Mint Mobile.  Mint Mobile offers a 12-month plan with unlimited talk, text, and data with the first 8GB each month at LTE data speeds for $240 annually or $20/month.  Mint Mobile, however, operates on the T-Mobile network.

Well, I bought this deal online first time and wanted to keep the same number from MetroPCS but after some calling with representative and process I got tired and bought again with another number which works fine. It is a good deal but support is very minimal from company. If you want to get it order from official at&t website and get a new number so less hackle.

I tried to buy this plan but there is no way to check out the cart (Safari 12.1.2).

The legal fine print says this plan is eligible for the multi-line discoun (2x$5/month), but there is no way to add two of this plan to the cart.

The legal fine print does not say whether the plan can renew for a second year for the promo price, so I will assume that after 12 months the plan reverts to the regular price after 360 days.

Chat with AT&T rep:
1. Only one promo can appear on your cart/order, but you can add both new lines to one account.
2. Multi-line discount will credit to your account each month as a credit, and will pay for extra charges like taxes. $10/month credit for two lines.
3. After 12 months are up you will be billed $40/month/line if you are on autopay. Multi line discount still applies.
(Your multi line credit balance would pay your bill for a month and maybe a little more.)
Analysis:
This promo works somewhat like the old, ‘free’ Unlimited Bring Your Phone promo on Sprint postpaid. It expires after 12 months, and you pay monthly taxes/fees.

I signed up for two lines but when I was activating these the person I was on the phone with told me that I couldn’t get a multi-line discount with these. Is it possible this has changed in the last couple months?

My guess is that AT&T made it monthly so they can charge you there miscellaneous bs charges, on a monthly basis. If it was a true yearly plan they could only get it once. Any way AT&T can get a little something out of you they will. So add another $4-5 bucks a month…..

Incorrect Joe! Rules changed for this promo! Not the same game from the past. Read my comments to others. Also, check the final term at the final checkout screen! You’ll be very surprised with the slick deceptive way they are promoting this deal!

Yes they made it monthly! Fine print at the final checkout indicates it so and they will also charge taxes and fees on a monthly basis.

if that’s the case and they in fact have monthly charges, then it’s probably the tax portion on the $25 (i.e. $300 / 12 months), assuming you don’t pay tax up front on the $300 on check out

Got my SIM yesterday everything works perfectly, I’m loving it! Ha ha I was with red pocket on ATT’s GSMA plan for $20 a month but with ATT’s account you get more control. I recommend this plan to any one who is not big on streaming video.

This was a total scam. I went to a store and non of the employees knew of the promo. I showed them the offer on their own website, and one person gave me a SIM card. I tried to activate the service at the store, but there was no option for this $25 monthly promo, so the AT&T store employee told me to activate with the $50 monthly prepaid plan instead. I was immediately charged for the $50/month plan. I tried chatting with AT&T online and the person told me he couldn’t help me with prepaid plans and told me to call a representative. I called AT&T and the representative has nevere heard of this promo plan and couldn’t change the plan for me. I ended up wasting $50 on nothing.

That is because it is an online-only plan. I experienced the similar at a shop, but you should register it on the at&t website.

The deal is good till 10/21. Every so often Target runs deals on ATT prepaid cards, as even less often does ATT itself. If you could pay with those discounted cards you probably could reduce the cost of this another 20% or so.

You can’t pay for this with a gift card. I keep hearing this old wives tale from 2003 on every forum. Prepaid plans are now all mandated to pay the same taxes and fees as postpaid so keep in mind you will pay more than the claimed $300 at the final checkout when you enter your CC number. Go to the checkout and look yourself! It requires payment via credit card only! No exceptions!
