AT&T Offers Discounts to Multi-Line GoPhone Plans
AT&T plans to offer small discounts to GoPhone plans with multiple lines. In order to score a discount, customers will need to chose either the $45 plan with 3 GB of data or the $60 plan with 6 GB of data. A second line added to the first will cost $5 less per month, with the third, fourth, and fifth lines costing $10, $15, and $20 less, respectively. Customers must chose a "Multi-Line Account" to receive the per-line discounts. The family-friendly offer kicks off August 19. Further, AT&T says now through September 22, customers can buy one AT&T GoPhone and get one free when activated with a new line of service on a $45 or $60 monthly plan. GoPhone does not charge overages, but does throttle users who exceed their monthly data allotment.
