AT&T offering a $100 discount off iPad purchases with a two year data plan

AT&T offering a 00 discount off iPad purchases with a two year data planAT&T has announced that it will off a discount off any iPad if you sign up for a new two year data plan. The new offer starts on November 9th and offers $100 off any iPad with LTE. The offer doesn't just cover iPads either, any tablet that AT&T sells can qualify for the $100 discount. Tablets can be purchased at any AT&T store, online or through selected AT&T agents.

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, AT&T* today announced it is offering a promotional discount to tablet customers. Beginning Friday, Nov. 9, customers will receive $100 off any tablet purchased at an AT&T company owned store or online at www.att.com or at selected agents or retailers with a two-year data plan agreement.

Tablet customers can choose from several qualifying data plan options, including adding a tablet to an AT&T Mobile Share plan for just $10 per month. With Mobile Share, customers share a single bucket of data – from 1GB up to 20GB – with other devices, including smartphones, tablets, gaming devices, and more.

This type of buying model is very common place around the world as it makes a lot of sense for carriers to tie you in to a longer term contract. It is actually nothing new and is very similar to buying a new subsidized phone with a new contract. If you are planning on buying a new iPad and will use the data plan over the two year period, you may as well save the $100. If you will only use data on a more casual basis, it may be better to just pay for the iPad outright. At least now you have a little bit more choice.

AT&T offering a $100 discount off iPad purchases with a two year data plan

3 Comments

So what happens if I buy an iPad 4 now and want to buy an iPad 5 before the 2 years is up? I assume I can sell the 4 and migrate the 5 to the same data plan...basically as long as I continue to pay $10/month for the original 2 years?

*Edit, I needed coffee for my brain to work. Thought about it like a phone. You buy the phone subsidized, then ATT doesn't care what you do with it...as long as you pay the bill for 2 years.

Let's see........

$14.99 * 24mo = $359.76....before taxes & mystery fees.

All this to save $100? Doesn't seem like much of a deal. Then again, I'm not in the market for a LTE iPad either. A jailbroken iPhone w/ MyWi is all I need.
