    I haven't been keeping up with X deals. I should have jumped on the B1G1 AT&T ran around Valentine's Day.

    I'm on T-Mo and wanting to switch to AT&T. Is the $250 gift card from Target a good deal? I suppose it can be stacked with B1G1. Anything else out there lately better?

    I have a feeling I'll get this and then a B1G1 including the X will come out shortly after haha.

    If you shop at Target or have a use for the $250 card then sure it's a good deal.. I am not aware of the specifics but read the fine print and see what it entails..

    Yes we shop there weekly (right up the street from us). Just says $250 with any activation.

    I have DTV also. That’s a requirement sometimes for offers. The reception I mentioned in another thread worries me though. Sister said her 7+ has better reception than her son’s X (he doesn’t get service in some areas whereas hers is always fine).

    Reception for me on AT&T is about the same I get with other phones. Where I live signal strength is weak but my X does fine. I had a Pixel last year that was terrible. I had an iPhone 8 before trading for the X and the 8 was about on par with X, signal strength wise..

    A $250 gift card is a good deal in my opinion. I usually get phones from Sams Club when they run a similar promo.

    Good to know...thanks for the info!

    I keep going back and forth on this because, like I said, I have a feeling they will let 2 X's come back in an offer for B1G1 soon. Then again, they may not. I think it only lasted a week or 2 didn't it?

    Hard call... If you have a use for 2 X's then maybe trying calling AT&T and ask for the retention department. They can offer all kinds of things a regular rep can't. I can see them giving you the BOGO offer. Of course it all depends on length of service / how long you've been a customer and if you've had any past payment issues ect.

    Just tell them you are thinking about switching carriers and see what they offer..

    Well I am with t-mobile and want to switch to AT&T. Signal indoors is just frustrating me. That and I went the cheap route of getting my screen fixed, and it acts crazy sometimes. Want a new phone as a result.

    I believe at some point Target offered a $300 gift card. That said, right now looks like a good time to do it. Other times the gift card is lower or there is no such promo at all.

    Keep in mind the $250 is for a new line, and it's $150 for an upgrade of an existing AT&T line.

    Plus this stacks with the AT&T iPhone 8 BOGO if you are activating a new line (the other can be an upgrade or another new line), which currently doesn't have an expiration date but I'm not sure how much longer it'll be around.

    Thanks for the info!

    I would be wanting to port 2 lines over from T-mobile to AT&T. At the moment the BOGO doesn’t include 2 X’s, so maybe we would go with X and 8 Plus.
