AT&T slashes $200 off iPad if you buy an iPhone


iPad Air and iPad mini

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.
