Today we're tracking a few offers from carriers on cellular models of the new Apple Watch Series 7, which just launched last week. Many of the initial deals on these Series 7 models are still around today, from carriers like AT&T and Verizon.

AT&T

Starting with AT&T, you can get $200 in bill credits put towards a second Apple Watch after you purchase one. Both Apple Watches must be purchased on a qualifying installment plan and there's a $30 activation/upgrade fee, and at least one new line must be added.

Models eligible under this sale include Series 3 (up to $289.99), Series 4 (up to $699.99), Series 5 (up to $749.99), Series 6 (up to $799.99), SE (up to $359.99), and Series 7 (up to $799.99). You can pick any two models from these Apple Watch generations.



AT&T currently has most Apple Watch Series 7 models for an estimated delivery date in early to mid November, but there are some models that can be delivered sooner. The 41mm Green Aluminum Series 7 model has an October 25 estimate, for example.

For most other Series 7 models, you'll see an estimated delivery between November 5 and November 19. Head to AT&T for more information on the sale.

Verizon

Verizon is offering $200 off the Apple Watch Series 7 when you trade in your old Apple Watch within 30 days of purchase. New and current customers can also get Beats Studio Buds for free when purchasing an Apple Watch and iPhone together.



The $200 off deal is available for all Series 7 models, and the credit will be applied over 24 monthly bills. Currently, two Series 7 models have shipping estimates in October and November on Verizon: 41mm Midnight Aluminum (November 11) and 41mm Blue Aluminum (October 28).

You can also save on previous generation Apple Watch models, including the Series 6 and SE. Head to Verizon for more information on the sale.

T-Mobile/Sprint

Similar to AT&T, T-Mobile is offering $200 off when you purchase two Apple Watch Series 7 models. For this deal, you'll need to add two new lines as well, on an Apple DIGITS or Apple Standalone plan.



T-Mobile has some of the best stock among the carriers, with most ready to ship between today and October 25. Once you purchase both models and activate the new lines, you'll receive $200 back via 24 monthly bill credits.

Watch users really suffer with trade-in values. Its a joke. $800 App Watch Series 5 is now worth $145 to apple. It's always been that way too. If you're an edition/steel customer and upgrade every year, you're basically paying $500-$700 to own that watch for a year versus the $300 on average that iPhone owners pay. I don't upgrade every year anymore but man that trade in value is pretty lame.

Bill credits and requires purchasing TWO Apple Watch Series 7.

I would just stick to Apple Store's promo before it ends, which gets you $100 prepaid MasterCard in 6-8 weeks.

Also, you must select $10/month smartwatch plan to qualify, not the $5/month plan.

I sold my stainless s3 for $275, couldn't find any better and trade-in was $75! Decided I'm done with watch for a bit, waiting for more compelling updates or not bothering at all in the future... but they definitely plummet in value.

The AT&T deals are always worthless, because you have to ADD a line. I upgraded 2 older Apple Watches, and that doesn't qualify for anything. One of them would have to be a new line. Ridiculous.

The Best Buy offer is ridiculous. It's written like you are getting a discounted price for the watch. It not up to $200 off, it's your paying me for the watch I am trading in. Which most likely is much less than what it can be sold on Ebay for.

This is what all trade ins clam. They say free with trade in, which makes it not free.

I prefer the nicer models. I guess maybe a better example is iPhone Pro versus watch edition. I know the edition Is ONLY case updates but still..you'd think the depreciation would be the same curve line but instead the Editions drop off a cliff after a year.

Any such UK deals, anyone know?

Scrap that, clearly all these so-called 'deals' are the normal crap smoke and mirrors.

Lol yeah that's what I thought as well... it reads like I was getting a $200 discount plus the trade in value..... Anyway I checked just for the hell of it, and they offered $200 for a series 6 - 44MM - Stainless steel. I don't know what sucker would take that deal.
