AT&T 50 percent off smartphones offer

This weekend is turning out to be a good one for smartphone bargain hunters. Yesterday we learned about an iPhone 5 trade-in deal at Best Buy and an HTC One/$100 Google Play credit promo at RadioShack, and now it's been revealed that AT&T is offering a 50 percent discount on all of its smartphones that are priced between $0.99 and $199.99.

According to AT&T's website, customers interested in taking advantage of the 50 percent off promo just need to add a smartphone to their cart, and then the discount will be applied when they check out. All smartphones priced between $0.99 and $199.99 are eligible, including new devices like the Galaxy S4 Active. Interestingly, while the deal's fine print says that a two-year agreement is required, I was able to get the discount applied to a one-year contract as well.

In addition to cutting the price of any smartphone in half, AT&T is waiving its $36 activation fee as part of the promotion. The offer runs through June 30 and is available in-store and online, though it sounds like customers that'd like to go the in-store route may need to trade in a working smartphone in order to get a $100 credit that can then be applied to a new handset. As I mentioned before, customers shopping online get the discount instantly applied at checkout.

Getting a 50 percent discount on any new smartphone is a pretty good deal, but what makes this offer even better is that even applies to new hardware. The fact that the offer appears to be working with one-year contracts is great as well, because as Android Police notes, the discount will result in a device that costs just a little bit more than it would with a two-year commitment. If you're in the market for a new handset, you can hit up the AT&T link below and see if the big blue carrier's 50 percent discount is enough to get you to pull the trigger on one of its smartphones.
