AT&T Offers $500 Credit to DirectTV Customers

att logoAT&T has announced a limited time offer that will allow DirectTV customers to save $500 on their wireless bills when switching to AT&T.

This deal makes use of AT&T’s $49 billion buyout of DirectTV. Since DirectTV is now under its umbrella, AT&T is able to offer pay-TV service subscribers up to a $500 credit per line if they switch wireless service. Families of four, therefore, could be eligible for $2000 in credits.

AT&T will issue $300 in credits to the account holder for each line ported over to the company’s Next program. Additionally, AT&T will offer up to $200 if customers trade in their handsets, provided they are in “good working” order.

“This is a unique offer and unlike anything we’ve ever done – all to celebrate DirecTV now being part of the AT&T family,” says David Christopher, chief marketing officer for AT&T Mobility. “This is another way we’re making it better when you choose TV and wireless from AT&T.”

If customers combine their wireless and U-Verse bills, AT&T will also provide a $10 monthly bill credit, for a total of $120 off annually.

This offer is only available to customers in the continental United States and ends October 4.
