Despite of the launched promotions, all discounts and once-in-a-lifetime deals going live very often on various networks, it goes without saying that cell phone service today can be pretty expensive. That said, every help to save a penny is welcome specially if you are on a tight budget in this challenging economy. Right now, the help is coming from Amazon in a form of a $100 credit which you can use to reduce your bill on AT&T or Verizon services. Here are the details.
Amazon’s $100 Credit Offer – How it works.
There is just one thing you need to do in order to receive the credit. Amazon wants you to buy a phone from their retail store and activate it either on AT&T or Verizon. Customers activating a new line of service, or adding a new line to an existing account are able take advantage of the deal. However, on the other side, the existing customers upgrading their phones are not eligible for the promotion. The good news is that it seems that there are no limitations on what kind of phone you can choose, so it can be any smartphone or phablet from AT&T and Verizon portfolio with or without contract.
Speaking of the details, there is a tiny catch, though. The credit cannot be applied to the phone you are buying to reduce total at checkout or any other accessory for that matter. You can use the credit only towards to reduce your bill on AT&T or Verizon service. Moreover, you will need to be patient. It will take up to three billing cycles for the credit to take effect, so don’t except immediate savings.
Either way, those $100 will remain in your wallet, and can be put to good use. Amazon doesn’t disclose when the deal expires, so it could be a good idea to decide quickly whether your in.
