AT&T 25% Discount Offer

Direct Link

AT&T Wireless has launched a “America’s best deserves our best” promotion, thanking those that serve our country and communities with a 25% discount.

That’s significant because AT&T has some of the most expensive cellular plans among the “Big Four” (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint); or really the “Big Three” now that T-Mobile and Sprint has merged. Customers stick with them though because of their call quality and data coverage levels, so this is a great opportunity to save money.

The discount is a permanent discount on a qualifying unlimited plan. In order to get the discount, AT&T requires:

  • an eligible job that qualifies for the discount (list below)
  • proof of eligible job
  • autopay and paperless billing

The 25% discount will credit within 3 billing cycles of your submission with a one-time catch-up credit applied for the time since the customer submitted proof.

The Bottom Line

The military discount isn’t a new thing, but with the coronavirus, AT&T expanded it to other American jobs that have helped the nation in dealing with this crisis.

Permanent discount makes ninjas jump for joy, although the terms and conditions require you to certify annually.
