AT&T today announced a series of deals launching this Thursday, March 1 that will be available only for customers in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The offers vary from city to city, and the carrier noted that each one will last for a "limited time" only.
The city-specific deals are debuting alongside the launch of AT&T's new Unlimited Plus Enhanced and Unlimited Choice Enhanced plans, and most of them tie in with the new plans. Users everywhere in the United States will be able to sign up for one of the new Unlimited plans, but AT&T is launching offers for three select cities -- "tailored" to its customers in each -- as a way to encourage sign ups for the plans in these locations.
AT&T detailed some information on each plan, seen in the quote below, and there's a new support article on ATT.com with a deeper breakdown. One of the major new updates comes to the Unlimited Plus plan, which is $80 for the first line, down from the current price of $90, and now comes with 15GB of hotspot data, an increase from 10GB. The carrier is also offering a $15 loyalty video credit applicable to DirecTV, U-Verse, or DirecTV Now.
On AT&T Unlimited Plus Enhanced the first line starts at only $80, and you’ll get 15GB of mobile hotspot data per line on the plan. And on AT&T Unlimited Choice Enhanced unlimited 4G LTE data is only $40 a line when you have 4 lines.
These enhanced wireless plans come with a $15 loyalty credit towards applicable AT&T video services
Regarding the city-specific offers, New York users will get one year of DirecTV Now for free when switching to either of the new Unlimited plans. The offer is valid for both new and existing DirecTV Now customers and will be given in the form of a $35/month video credit over the course of 12 months, which pays entirely for DirecTV Now's basic "Live a Little" package. If users want more channels, they can switch to a larger package and put the $35 credit towards it.
As usual, the credits will start within two bill cycles, and New York users will automatically be charged at full price when DirecTV Now renews after one year, but they can cancel beforehand. AT&T is also still offering new DirecTV Now customers a chance to get a 32GB Apple TV 4K at no cost when they prepay for three months of DirecTV Now at $105.
In Chicago, those who switch from any wireless competitor to one of AT&T's new Unlimited plans will get free home internet on plans up to 50 Mbps "for life." Similar to the New York offer, this will come in the form of a $30 monthly internet credit to pay for a 50 Mbps plan, which can be applied to a higher speed internet tier if desired. The "for life" qualification pertains to users who maintain a qualifying service on AT&T's new Unlimited plan, alongside a matching eligible service address in Chicago.
Lastly, those in Los Angeles will have a more traditional buy one, get one offer on "the latest smartphones," including iPhone X. AT&T said that Los Angeles residents can purchase a 64GB iPhone X and get another for free when both are purchased on AT&T Next, and a new line is added with eligible wireless service.
