galaxy tab 3 7 cheap android tablets

Thanks to a brand new promotion, AT&T customers who purchase a Galaxy S4, Note 3, Note 2 or Galaxy S4 Active will receive a brand new 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3!

As you probably guessed, you will need to either sign a two-year contract or use AT&T’s NEXT service in order to qualify for this promotion. The only other catch is that the tablet will need to be added to an existing AT&T Mobile Share plan, which will set you back $10 a month. AT&T’s free tablet promotion is currently being offered through AT&T’s stores, though the offer will soon be available online as well.

In addition to the free tablet promo, AT&T also announced that it will be giving out an $100 AT&T Promotion Card to anyone who trades in an eligible smartphone and purchase a new device through AT&T Next. Both promotions are limited time offers and are set to end on January 9th of 2014.

What do you think, anyone planning on picking up an AT&T Samsung device and taking advantage of this offer while it lasts?

    Thanks for the info but it is not really a deal. $10 extra a month is $240 after a 2 year contract. That means you are paying more than it costs outright for the wifi only version of this tablet which is $179.

    • mobilemann

      typical of at&t. No matter what, they win.

      • trwb

        Yea most carriers are like that. Out for as much money as they can get.

        • frankie

          it would have been a better deal for them if they updated more of their samsung phones to 4.3 like the other carriers are doing (hint: to sell more gears) as even with the note 3 alone they are constantly getting out of stock with the gear

          • trwb

            Yea att sucks with updates. So did verizon when i was with them. At least the att s3 has 4.3 via roms.

    • Christian Lindqvist

      Maybe they wil stat charging you americans for using bluetooth like they do wifi hot spots on your phone!

      22,80€/month 50mbit/s 4g (no limit) 300 min 25sms in Finland, consistantly arround 48mbit/s with speed test using my hotspot for my computer I have used 74Gbits for this month so far :-)

  • Kenny Woodard

    Just another scam by a wireless company. Plus why do you need a mobile plan for a “wifi tablet”? It kinda offends me how these companies like AT&T take advantage and try to screw people over. All of these wireless plans are a complete and utter joke.. They give you a “subsidized price” if you buy a phone through them, but you end up paying 3x what the phone was actually worth if go through a two year contract. I don’t know why these major companies can’t offer cheaper plans. I use at least 5GBs of data a month, and luckily I’m still on an unlimited plan. If I ever lose it, it would cost me too much to pay for data through AT&T. You can go through a company like Straight Talk and get everything unlimited for 45$ a month. That’s reasonable enough to me. Plus you can bring pretty much any phone to them and keep using it.

    Even if this wasn’t a scam by AT&T it’s very difficult to recommend a Galaxy Tab 3 7″ over the Nexus 7.

    • Tuấn Ankh

      totally agree. The Tab 3 7″ is weak! It cannot even run Deadzone Shadowgun smoothly, which runs very well on the Nexus 7 of 2012.

      • John Locke

        Yeah, the entire Galaxy Tab 2013 is terrible. Note series is much better IMO

  • MrDivaNYC

    DO NOT and I REPEAT DO NOT go to AT&T..LMAO! Come to T-Mobile… BBM Me: 7B725FA9

  • Daniel

    As other people have said here, this is a total scam! The reps on the phone do not tell you about the fees — they insist it’s no strings attached — and then they appear on your bill. It’s totally bogus and makes me thinks twice about continuing with AT&T. I’ve been a customer of their since 1999 — it’s the only wireless company I’ve ever had — and yet this is an out and out scam.

    When I called, the phone rep said I could cancel but there would be cancellation fees. I told the rep that I would not pay the fees and that I would sue them if they did not return all the money they charged for this unauthorized service. A supervisor did as I requested. It amounted to something like $80. If one of the biggest and most famous companies in the world resorts to deception and dishonesty, it really makes you wonder…
