AT&T Prepaid offers wireless prepaid phone deals through different retail venues. And with tax season well underway, you’re likely wondering what prepaid phones are available at a discount, where you can find them, and what these deals entail. 

In this article, you’ll find plenty of information on deals offered by Walmart and AT&T (including the website and prepaid stores). You’ll also learn more about phone deals involving companies such as Motorola, Samsung, and Apple. One of Walmart’s featured deals includes $100 off the iPhone 11, which is available for $299 after the discount, and you’ll find similar deals on Motorola and Samsung phones. 

With many different smartphones available at discounted prices, you’ll need to sift through all the information to determine what differentiates every deal offered by AT&T and Walmart. 

AT&T Website And Prepaid Store Deals

AT&T says that its prepaid phone deals require you to purchase either a phone plan priced $30 or higher or their $65 unlimited data prepaid plan. 

Keep in mind that you can avoid activation fees when you do your shopping online, whereas in-store purchases will likely require you to pay all service charges, which include:

  • Activation fee – $15 (in-store and in-home assistance)
  • First monthly payment – a minimum of $30 plus tax
  • Any other applicable sales tax

With that out of the way here’s what you’ll find from AT&T Prepaid’s website available both online and in stores: 

Deals That Require Activation On A Plan $30 Or Higher

Samsung Galaxy A03s

The phone is available at a 50% discount when you sign for a monthly prepaid AT&T plan – the price of the phone reduces from $129.99 to $64.99. 

The Galaxy A03s comes with 32GB of storage capacity and features 4G LTE wireless technology. It also has a 6.5-inch display screen and expandable storage of up to 1TB. 

Samsung Galaxy A02s

Slightly more affordable than the A03s, the Galaxy A02s also offers a 50% price reduction, which means that you’ll only have to pay $59.99 for the phone itself. 

The phone also has similar features and specifications to the A03s – one of the most notable differences, however, deals with the Android operating systems used in both phones. The A02s makes use of Android OS 10, and the A03s makes use of Android OS 11. 

AT&T Calypso 2

Marketed as an affordable smartphone that has everything you need, the Calypso 2 is available at $39.99. At 32GB, it has an average overall storage capacity when compared to most phones. It also has an 8MP rear camera, and a 5.5-inch display screen.

Motorola Moto G Play

Instead of paying the full price of $99.99, you’ll receive a 50% discount on the Moto G Play when you sign up for the prepaid phone plan. The phone itself doesn’t offer the most internal storage, but Moto G Play produces high-resolution photos and video images. And if you head to your local Walmart, you may find an even better deal as it's on clearance in Walmart stores for $24

Deals That Require Activation On The $65 Unlimited Plan

Motorola One 5G Ace

Here’s another prepaid phone that’s also available at a significant discount – a price reduction from $259.99 to $129.99. Again, you must also sign up for AT&T’s $65 unlimited prepaid plan when you purchase the phone. At 64GB, the phone offers double the storage capacity of the A03s, and the One 5G Ace is among the highest-rated phones that AT&T offers. 

AT&T Radiant Max 5G

The AT&T Raidant Max 5G is marked down from $179.99 to $89.99. It features 64GB of internal storage, a 6.8 inch screen and quad-rear camera setup led by a 48MP camera.

There is no word as to when these offers will end, but likely after the tax season. AT&T does say that the deals can be terminated at any time.

Walmart AT&T Prepaid Phone Deals

The AT&T prepaid phone deals that you’ll find at Walmart are similar to what AT&T offers on their website. However, it’s important to point out a few key differences when it comes to prices for prepaid plans, discounts, in-store activation fees, and other charges you’ll have to pay upfront. Without in-store activation, you also won’t qualify for the discount on a prepaid phone. Each deal ends is scheduled to end on June 25 (but they could end earlier if supplies run out).

Deals That Require Activation On A Plan $30 Or Higher

With most phones, Walmart requires you to sign up for any AT&T monthly plan to qualify for their prepaid phone deals. Those phones include the AT&T Calypso as well as the Galaxy A03s and A12. In-store activation reduces the cost of the plan to $25 per month. 

AT&T Calypso 

The original Calypso phone from AT&T is available at Walmart at $39.88, which is technically cheaper than the Calypso 2 offered directly from AT&T. However, at 16GB, the original Calypso has less storage space, but the display screen is the same size. 

Galaxy A03s

The Galaxy A03s is available for $29 with in-store activation at Walmart when you also sign up for the prepaid plan. This means that you can save $35.99 by going through Walmart, but without the in-store activation, you have to pay $79 upfront for the phone. 

Galaxy A12

The AT&T online and prepaid stores don't offer a discount for the Galaxy A12. However, Walmart offers the phone for $69, which is $110.99 cheaper than shopping for the same phone through AT&T. The Galaxy A12 offers 32GB of storage and has a display screen of 6.5 inches.

Deals That Require Activation On The $65 Unlimited Plan

The deals offered by Walmart for the iPhone SE 2022 and iPhone 11 require you to sign up for the $65 Unlimited Max prepaid plan. This includes unlimited high-speed data, access to 5G coverage, a 10GB mobile hotspot, and HD streaming. When you go to sign up for the plan, you can also reduce your monthly payment to $45 with AutoPay.

iPhone SE 2020

Walmart stores with the iPhone SE 2020 in stock will sell you the phone for $149. This is almost the same discount offered by AT&T online and prepaid stores before they stopped selling the phone (the deal is now a Walmart exclusive). You’ll need to pay the activation fee and other service charges upfront. Keep in mind that most Walmart associates can help you in activating your phone. 

iPhone 11

The iPhone 11 offered by Walmart is on sale for $299 – a discount of $100 from the original price. It’s the most pricey prepaid phone deal offered by Walmart, and as discussed earlier in this article, has similar features to the iPhone SE 2020 (this deal is also exclusive to Walmart).

Whether you’re shopping directly through AT&T or Walmart, you’ll discover different deals for specific AT&T prepaid smartphones. In terms of overall savings, Walmart offers the most competitive prices. AT&T online and prepaid stores, on the other hand, have more smartphones available at discounted prices. Also, these are limited-time offers that can expire in the near future.
