But if you simply cannot wait a few weeks more, have an itch you desperately need to scratch and have your minds set on scoring a high-end Samsung smartphone, you might as well do it through AT&T and get a little something, something on the side.
Namely, a snazzy, sleek and portable Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. Free of charge. No strings attached, unless you count Ma Bell contracts as pests.
Qualifying Samsung handhelds include the Galaxy Note 3, Note 2, GS4 and S4 Active, so basically the four proudest members of the Galaxy family tree’s smartphone branch. By getting any of the four on 24-month pacts or on AT&T Next, you’re automatically entitled to a free GTab 3 7.0, normally worth $199.99. Keep in mind though that you’ll need to pen a separate contract for the slate, with all the applying activation, upgrade and early termination fees.
Now, as far as those phones go, I don’t want to tell you what to do, but the most lucrative deals are for the GS4 and S4 Active, each valued at $199.99. Meanwhile, the Note 2 and 3, albeit very deserving and impressive themselves, are a tad overpriced, costing $199.99 and $299.99 respectively. Have fun shopping!
