AT&T deals quick links

AT&T deals are especially good if you're adding new lines, trading in, or switching carriers. With these offers, you can often save hundreds of dollars of the retail price of a new phone, and sometimes you can even get the phone for free. AT&T might not have quite the coverage Verizon does, but with these discounts and the generally cheaper pricing of its plans, your savings can start to add up.

Generally, AT&T deals entail purchasing the phone on an installment plan and getting a data plan at a specific level (like AT&T's Unlimited Starter plan), then AT&T will give you monthly rebates toward the value of the phone. So, to get the maximum value from these deals, you'll want to be ready to stick with AT&T for the long haul - 30 months in fact, at which point you'll have received the full discount.

So, keep those details in mind as we guide you through all the best AT&T phone deals. We'll help you find the best savings on iPhones, Android phones, 5G phones, and even some accessories to go alongside them.

AT&T iPhone deals

Apple iPhone 14 & 14 Plus: up to $800 off with trade-in and unlimited plan at AT&T (opens in new tab)

Apple iPhone 14 & 14 Plus: up to $800 off with trade-in and unlimited plan at AT&T (opens in new tab)
AT&T's deals on the iPhone 14 offer the usual trade-in rebate of up to $800 this week - essentially the standard rate offered on the device since launch. While not the most exciting offer, this rebate is in fact enough to get the standard device for free if your old device is valued highly enough. Bear in mind, however, that you will need to be getting a new device on an unlimited data plan to be eligible here. These can be pretty pricey (like $80 per month), so it's definitely worth lining up a trade-in for a respectable discount. See this same deal on the iPhone 14 Plus (opens in new tab)

Apple iPhone 14 Pro & 14 Pro Max: up to $800 off w/ trade-in and unlimited plan at AT&T (opens in new tab)

Apple iPhone 14 Pro & 14 Pro Max: up to $800 off w/ trade-in and unlimited plan at AT&T (opens in new tab)
AT&T's deals on the pricier iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max also offer that same trade-in rebate of up to $800 off, a really fantastic saving. As with all big carrier promotions, this one is tied to an unlimited data plan so definitely factor that into your budget before you jump in. It's also worth bearing in mind that we've seen AT&T offer a maximum trade-in rebate of up to $1,000 on a few rare occasions in the past. See this same deal on the iPhone 14 Pro Max (opens in new tab).

Apple iPhone 13: $20 (opens in new tab)

Apple iPhone 13: $20 $5 with unlimited plan at AT&T (opens in new tab)
A superb deal if you're not fussed about getting the latest and greatest, the iPhone 13 is available for just $5 per month with an unlimited data plan with this week's AT&T deals. This is the lowest price yet for this device at the carrier and a decent option all around if you're not looking to trade in for the 14. While it's not the latest device in the range anymore, a powerful chip, decent camera, and fully modern design mean the iPhone 13 still really holds up well for 2022.

Apple iPhone 12 mini:  $1/mo with unlimited plan at AT&T (opens in new tab)

Apple iPhone 12 mini: $1/mo with unlimited plan at AT&T (opens in new tab)
The carrier is giving away this slightly older 5G device for just $1 right now - a record-breaking price. Even better still, no trade-in rebates are needed here to get a discount, only a line on an unlimited data plan. While the iPhone 12 mini is no longer the latest and greatest from Apple, it still looks just as modern as the more recent entries. It's also fully 5G compatible, which is handy when pairing it up with an unlimited plan.

Google Pixel 7: save up to $700 with a trade-in and unlimited plan at AT&T (opens in new tab)
The latest Google Pixel 7 is available with a competitive trade-in rebate with this week's best AT&T deals. A maximum saving of up to $700 off isn't the biggest saving at the carrier right now, but it's still enough to cover the entire cost of the device. Since this device has a cheaper price than some of the flagships out there right now, it's one of the more accessible trade-in options currently. Note, you can also trade in for the Google Pixel 7 Pro (opens in new tab) with a maximum saving of up to $800.
