Carriers have been all about throwing around cash incentives for the past couple weeks. It all started when T-Mobile offered a free year of unlimited 4G LTE data to those who switch from the other 3 major carriers. Cricket then responded by offering a $100 credit to those who switch from T-Mobile (specifically).

T-Mobile’s archenemy and Cricket Wireless owner was not going to keep its arms crossed, though. Without making much fuzz, the AT&T is now bringing back its $100 credit for new lines. The battle is real, and though AT&T didn’t say much this is probably their way of discretely giving Magenta the finger.

It’s relatively simple to take advantage of this deal, but it has its conditions. Of course, this is only for new lines, but subscribers must also sign up for AT&T Next to take advantage of this offer. Take care of those two factors and your bill credit will show up on your account 3 months after.

By the way, this bill credit offer has an expiration date.

With all the juicy details out of the way – which company are you giving your cash to? T-Mobile’s deal is very enticing to those who need their unlimited data, but Cricket’s $100 credit may be tempting as an immediate reward. AT&T’s deal is definitely a process, but it’s a good incentive, nonetheless.

By the way, this bill credit offer has an expiration date. You best make a decision quick if you are thinking of going with AT&T! You need to sign up before September 30th, giving you about a month to take care of business.
