    This is confusing now...can't I do a BOGO on 2 actives? I thought the BOGO deal is any of the listed phones.

    Just taking a guess. ATT credits an account back $695 over the 24/30 mo plan selected. Which is how much the standard S7 costs at ATT. The S7A looks to run another $100 higher. So maybe they'll credit back $695 of the second phone? Meaning not only are they sticking you with bloatware, they also would like to dig another $100 out of your pocket.

    Based on my experience, sales reps are the last to know. They will most likely not even know on the 10th.

    As far as the deals go, is this just for next payments or would I get these deals if i just buy outright?

    I asked at Best Buy one day & they said you could pay for the phone 100% up front. But that your reimbursement would be account credits over the next 24 or 30 months. Do not remember which.

    Anyone know if these deals are valid if you buy the phone out right?

    Looks like only on the next plan and you buy them both with monthly payments and then get a monthly credit over the time you pay for them?

    It is not like you pay cash for one and they give you another phone on the spot. I figured there had to be a hitch. It will really **** a lot of people off if it is just new next plans.

    T48 has it correct, you can get 2 but with only $695 of bill credits, so you have to pay $100 for it. So, that's $900 for 2 of these which would be like getting 2 6Ps (just as a comparison ). There's also the option of getting a free Gear S2 or pay $.99 for a Galaxy Tab E if you don't want 2 actives. Those require a 2-year service agreement. I can't post the link but you can get the info on AT&T's site.

    So I am trying to understand the details of the BOGO offer for the S7A and was hoping someone could help me out.
    I currently have a grandfathered family plan and use two lines, one is mine, one is for my wife. We are both looking to get the S7A.
    Since the BOGO is only offered for those adding a line, I am wondering if anyone know the exact details for how this works. My thinking is, maybe I add a line $9.99/mo to my current plan even though I will never use that line.
    What I want to know is can I cancel the line after a set period of time? If I could cancel the new line and still get the credits that would be ideal however I am guessing that not the case.
    If not, doesnt it still make sense as the credit from the bogo would be $23.17 - $9.99 for new line, so $13.18 x 30 months or $395.
    So I would pay one full price and one discounted $395.
    Thoughts?

    I did the math as well on all the offered devices and found that the contractual agreement costs outweighed the value of the devices. Needless to say I walked out with only a S7 Active.

    What was your math? What are the agreement costs?

    The 8" Tab E is only worth about $175, so with AT&T its a connected device with a 2 year contract.... so that's $240 + $.99 + tax over the life of the device. Not worth the extra expense and the contract commitment. S2 stuff doesn't do anything for me and again the BOGO falls pretty much under the same lines as already mentioned. Might be a good deal for someone wanting or needing an extra line but I can't justify it.

    You can always call ATT customer service & ask. Though am going to guess that ATT is going to say if you would like a current deal, it will have to be on a current plan. So you will have to give up the old family plan for the bogo offer. Again, just guessing.

    Sorry. I should have added a few more details. I called ATT customer retention dept three times now to try and get clarification. Last night the guy was nice but didnt think I could do the deal without ditching my data plan. Today, first call, lady said I could add a line and then cancel after 45 days, then said BOGO was expired so nothing I could do. Third call later today said BOGO still available but I had to add third line and keep it open for the life of the phone.
    Bummer is I have been on ATT/Cingular/ATT since 1998 and the current trend doesn't reward loyalty at all. All about creating new lines and luring in new customers. Very short term thinking if you ask me but thats the way it is..
    Anyways, I really like the S7A and will probably get it at some point. Just frustrated with ATT at the moment.

    Agree with the not rewarding loyalty. Many business are running that way where they will spend a mint on a new customer but nothing for long term customers. I was the lowest of the low when I walked in and dropped $861 for my S7 Active. At least the sales rep was nice with her Eastern European accent.

    I just got the S7 Active and did the same math.

    The "free" Gear watch requires a $10/month adder to your bill and a 2 year commitment. That's $240. Plus a $45 activation fee. That's $285. More than the watch costs.

    The deals should really be called "deals for people who cannot do math."
