Apple is about to make the iPhone 5s and 5c obsolete, but if you’re in the market for a brand new iPhone and need an iPad to go with it, then AT&T is ready to lure you in with a $200 discount on any iPad you want, as long as it has 4G.
To score the deal you must be willing to venture into an AT&T retail store to buy your iPhone 5s or 5c, but like any carrier deal, there are a few strings attached.
Customers will have to purchase their iPhone upgrade on AT&T’s NEXT installment plans, instead of just a two-year contract and subsidy. You also have to sign a two-year cellular contract for the iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G to get the discount. That makes the savings really more like $100-$130.
How much money you really stand to save depends on which type of plans you’re on, but for those eyeing the non-retina iPad mini, you can grab the 16GB cellular model for only $200, thanks to an additional discount from AT&T. The 16GB iPad Air will run you $329.
If you’ve been eying a new iPhone 5c the deal could be worth it, but with the iPhone 6 so close on the horizon, unless you’re really desperate you might want to at least wait and see what Apple announces on September 9th.
