AT&T deals are especially good if you’re adding new lines 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.

Apple iPhone 12: save up to $700 with eligible trade-in and unlimited plan If you’re looking for the latest Apple flagship, AT&T has a great trade-in offer on all the iPhone 12 series right now. Trade-in an eligible older device and pick up your new iPhone with a new unlimited data plan to score a $700 discount on your phone bills over 30 months. Note, this AT&T deal is also available on the iPhone 12 Mini, 12 Pro, and even the 12 Pro Max.

Apple iPhone 11: $23.34 $10/month at AT&T with a new unlimited plan If you’re looking for a (relatively) modern Apple iPhone flagship on a budget, then consider AT&T deals on the iPhone 11. This device can be picked up for just $10 a month right now with a new unlimited data plan for new and existing customers. You can also trade-in for a further $200 saving, although we’d probably recommend going for the iPhone 12 above if you’re looking to trade an older device, as the potential savings are bigger.

Apple iPhone XR: save up to $700 with trade-in and unlimited data plan AT&T’s latest iPhone XR deal doesn’t specifically say you can score yourself a device for free, but that potential $700 off saving with an eligible trade-in should be more than enough to cover the cost. Again, you’ll need to pick one up with a new unlimited data line, but it’s an awesome offer all around.

Google Pixel 4a (5G): save $200 with a trade-in at AT&T The Google Pixel 4a 5G is a fantastic device if you’re looking for a slick mid-range device that packs a great camera and 5G connectivity. Right now, AT&T deals don’t feature anything too special, unlike those featured on the iPhone SE, but you can still get a rather nice discount with a trade-in. Do that, and you’ll be able to score up to $200 off the total cost of this device.

Google Pixel 5: save $200 with a trade-in at AT&T AT&T deals on the Google Pixel 5 aren’t amazing right now, most likely due to this device’s popularity, but you can still get yourself a neat little discount with a trade-in currently. If you’re looking for discounts with a new line, we’d recommend holding out on the Google Pixel 5 for now.
