In an attempt to gently nudge customers towards giving its new "Next" payment plans a try, AT&T is offering newly lowered monthly payments on some of its hottest devices. AT&T Next, if you'll recall, is a payment system that spreads the full off-contract price of the device over 20 months and offers upgrades every 12 months if you return the device.
Popular devices like the Galaxy S4 and HTC One were previously going for their full $32.50 or $30 per month, respectively, but have dipped down today to just $27 per month each. That means that if you plan on paying off the full device over 20 months you'll pay a just $540 for the devices, saving you $110 or $60 off normal retail. Other devices like the LG Optimus G and Optimus G Pro are just $17 and $20 per month as well.
We can't imagine that AT&T is interested in offering these deals forever, and this seems to be the case as AT&T has confirmed to Engadget that the pricing is promotional.
Whether you pick up a device with AT&T Next now during the promotional deal or afterwards (no set end date has been put on the deal), you still may want to double check the math before you sign on the dotted line. As we've covered before, these payment plans may not offer the great savings they claim.
If you do understand the terms and want to jump in, now's the time to save a little money.
