AT&T Giving Away 1000 Free Minutes to Some iPhone Customers
In yet another obvious effort to retain iPhone customers - those who now have more than one carrier option - AT&T is giving away 1000 free rollover minutes to some iPhone subscribers today (and through next month it seems). While it isn't yet known how many AT&T customers have already received a text from AT&T explaining the promotion, there's another way to see if you can claim your free minutes.
As instructed, yours truly texted the word 'yes' to 11113020. The result? I received my free 1000 minutes (see screenie above for proof). If you don't want to text AT&T to claim your chunk of minutes, there's a good chance you may still hear from AT&T today or in the coming days. If so, here's the message you can expect:
AT&T Free Msg: You’re a valued AT&T customer. We’d like to add 1000 bonus Rollover minutes to mobile number ending in xxxx. There’s NO cost or obligation to you. It’s our way of saying thank you. To have your minutes added, reply YES by 3/31/2011. Reply stop to end mktg msgs.
Yesterday, the Verizon iPhone debuted to the masses. Feeling the heat, AT&T is ramping up its promotional efforts. Before today's fee minutes bonanza, earlier this month AT&T offered a 25% discount on one accessory purchase and even a free MicroCell to select iPhone customers.
