AT&T offers credit for customers leaving T-Mobile

January 4, 2014 

AT&T on Friday made an announcement aimed squarely at T-Mobile customers: If they switch to AT&T from T-Mobile, they can receive up to $450 in credit to spend on devices or services.

To receive up to $250 in credit, T-Mobile customers will have to trade in their smartphone. Then, T-Mobile customers can get $200 more credit after selecting either an AT&T plan called Next, which gives customers a chance to upgrade to a new phone after one year, or its Mobile Share Value plan, its contract-free plan.

The move is a preemptive strike. T-Mobile is widely expected to announce next week that it will cover the costs of customers’ termination fees when they switch to T-Mobile.
