I hate when posts like these give free PR to the carriers for offering promos that have restrictive fine print. Nowhere in the MacRumors article does it mention the new line of service requirement.

offer expires in two days so hurry to your AT&T store to sign on the dotted line before you can figure out what you're getting yourself into. Rush rush rush!

The problem I have with the bogo is the bogo credits are spread over 30 months.

That mean they automatically get the $20 plus (cost to add a new line) per month x 30 months. So att is guaranteed $600 in revenue plus their bogus $1.99 federal universal fee (non mandatory) per line

So that’s $660 guarantee revenue for att for new line. Plus the $40 att next upgrade/new line fee. So $700 guaranteed. Att basically loses nothing in the bogo promo.

If you're already with AT&T and want a deal with out starting a new line, you need to connect with their Loyalty Department. 1-800-288-2020. Once you get a live person, verify you are speaking with the Loyalty Department, not Customer Service or anything else. The operator may want to document why you want to speak with the Loyalty Department, just let them know you want to talk about upgrading you current device. With the Loyalty Department, just explain you're a current customer and would like to upgrade your device. Be polite and indicate you don't want to pay full price for a device. I was able to get my wife's iPhone 8 a few months ago for $450 off of list. Naturally, YMMV, but I found that being calm and polite to the Loyalty Department went a long way.

I'm sure other carriers have something similar, so it pays to research a little.
