AT&T gives 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 to Galaxy smartphone buyers for Christmas

AT&T has announced a new special offer for the holiday season for shoppers looking for a new Samsung Galaxy smartphone. The offers were available starting yesterday and one will see buyers get a free seven-inch Samsung Galaxy 3 tablet with the purchase of a qualifying Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Customers will need to sign up for a new two-year contract for the qualifying smartphones.

Qualifying Samsung Galaxy devices include the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy Note 3, and Galaxy Note II. Another caveat to the special deal is that to get the free Galaxy Tab 3, you do have to sign up for a two-year agreement to keep data on the tablet.

Users on a AT&T Mobile Share plan can get the Galaxy Tab 3 for an additional $10 per month. AT&T has another special deal with a $100 AT&T Promotion Card for users who trade in an eligible smartphone and purchase a new smartphone with AT&T Next.

That $100 gift card can also be used to purchase tablets. AT&T doesn't specifically say what smartphones are eligible for the trade-in offer. Both of these offers will end on January 9, 2014 and are only valid while supplies last.
