Deal Alert: AT&T Has a Special $40 Internet Deal Ending Soon


If you have been a reader of Cord Cutters News, you likely know I highly recommend shopping around for home Internet. I also recommend switching between your phone company and your cable company for the best Internet deal.

This allows you to always get the best deal and, even if you don’t want to switch ISPs, knowing what the other services offer can help you when fighting for a lower price from your current provider. We find providers are far more likely to lower costs when you are informed about what the other provider is offering.

Now I have some good news: AT&T still has its $40 50 Mbps down Internet-only with a $50 Visa Reward Card deal for new customers.

You can get 50 Mbps down for $40 a month right now, but the deal does not stop there. If you sign up online it will give you a $50 Visa Reward Card to use wherever you want. It looks like AT&T has extended this deal through the end of the year. So only two more months to switch if you want to take advantage of this special pricing.

Switching Internet service providers will get you the new customer rates—the best rates. By switching back and forth I find I can save my family hundreds every year.

    too bad the best they can offer me is 1 Mbps and I live right on town. This is why most people here have Charter. Seriously 10 Mbps in 2017?

  • JulesWindu

    Not that great of a deal…still a 1TB cap and (for me at least) they charge a $99 install fee (can probably get it waived it you complain about it, but still…).

    And then taxes and fees are added to it.

    I pay Spectrum (who I hate) $44.99 total (including taxes and fees), no cap, and 60M down.

      I’m paying my cable company $99.00/month with a 1 Tb cap, my speeds are less than half of what they promise and my wifi drops out several times a day. I’ve had AT&T before and hate them, plus I can only get 10 Mbps in my area. So, since I was thinking about trying Spectrum, can you tell me what you hate about them?

      • Babbette’s Butler

        I had Time Warner and I quit them because the soonest they could come out for support calls was 1 week. Ain’t nobody got time for that, especially those of us who work at home. So I switched to AT&T, who will come out the next day at latest. Last week, a Spectrum guy came to the house and said since Spectrum took over TW, the response times are better. He seemed proud to tell me they had gotten it down to 5 days.

        • JulesWindu

          Agreed…and see what I said below. Support calls is another aspect of crappy customer service. I’ve had TWC/Spectrum for years (10+) and, luckily, have only had to have a truck roll 3-4 times.

      • JulesWindu

        Well, service-wise they are fine…terrific even. Customer service and price increases are the problem. Before I cut the cord I paid TWC $135/mo, Spectrum wanted to raise that to $190. There are billing problems (just had one last month), incorrect info given by reps, etc.(e.g., they tried to tell me I needed to pay for their modem)

        But, the service is great (and the same with TWC before them). I don’t get 60M, of course, but do get upper 40s consistently – more than enough. No caps. And a (relatively) low price.
