Are you an AT&T customer on a limited data plan? AT&T now has a way for you to add more data to your bucket.
AT&T today launched its Data Perks program, which rewards Android and iOS customers with additional data for participating in surveys, shopping, and other activities. Completing these perks will let you bank MB, and you then transfer the data you earn to your AT&T account in 25MB — up to 1000MB per billing cycle — to be used in that month. Any data that you don’t use in the cycle that you transfer it to your account will expire.
You can bank an unlimited amount of data, but you can only transfer 1000MB per month. Another detail that’s worth noting is that while Data Perks can be used by customers on a Mobile Share Value plan, you can’t share earned data between lines. Earned data can only be transferred and used by the line on which it was earned. Prepaid and business lines aren’t eligible for Data Perks.
If you’re hurting for more data for your AT&T phone but can’t afford to upgrade your monthly allotment, Data Perks could be a nice way to add a bit more if you’ve got free time to complete the activities. They’re probably not all going to be super exciting, but hey, it’s a way to get additional data onto your account without forking over more money.
