As part of its Father's Day promotions, AT&T has announced a cracker of a deal for the LG V35 ThinQ smartphone.
AT&T Announces 'Buy One, Get One' Deal
The LG V35 ThinQ, which was unveiled just six days ago, doesn't officially launch for another few days. However, that hasn't stopped AT&T from launching a deal on LG's latest flagship device.
The carrier is offering a "Buy One, Get One" deal on the $900 device for Father's Day, which happens to fall on June 14 this year. No other carrier, except Google's Project Fi, will be able to match or better this deal because the LG V35 ThinQ is an AT&T and Project Fi exclusive.
AT&T opted for this phone over the LG G7 ThinQ because of the latter's notchy LCD panel. The V35 ThinQ is not only notchless but also has an OLED display.
How To Avail The BOGO Deal
To be eligible for this deal, customers need to purchase two units of AT&T Next 30-Month installment plans at $30 per month or AT&T Next Every Year 24-month plans at $37.50 per month.
Next, they need to sign up for an unlimited or Mobile Share Flex rate plan and avail the BOGO discount in the form of bill credits ($30 a month for 30 months) after three billing cycles.
If customers trade-in an eligible device within two weeks of their purchase, AT&T will give them an additional $400 in credits. The offer requires eligible service with a minimum of $45 per month after taking into account AutoPay and Paperless billing discounts.
Moreover, the trade-in device must have at least a $20 value and meet AT&T's trade-in program requirements.
Although no deadline or expiry date is specified for the deal, AT&T has pointed out that it is a time-limited offer.
Is The AT&T Deal Worth It?
There is no doubt that the BOGO offer is a sweet deal given the eyebrows raised by AT&T and Project Fi with the hefty price of the V35 ThinQ. Priced at $900, it costs $10 more than the 128 GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and $50 more expensive than the recently announced 128 GB variant of the HTC U12+.
If the V35 ThinQ was a significant upgrade over V30, then the pricing would be understandable, but the specs indicate otherwise. The AT&T and Project Fi-exclusive product will struggle to persuade customers to ditch the Galaxy S9 for the LG smartphone at the aforementioned price. Therefore, AT&T is offering a huge discount on the device, so interested customers should make the most of it.
