The FINANCIAL -- Citi and AT&T on April 23 unveiled a new credit card featuring the opportunity to earn a new smartphone.
With the new AT&T Access More card, cardmembers can get a new smartphone right away, or whenever they are ready, and earn a reimbursement for the cost of the phone. Citi and AT&T provide a unique link to a web site where the cardmember purchases a new smartphone at full price with their card. The cardmember will receive a statement credit for the cost of the phone, up to $650, after making $2,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening and maintaining service with AT&T.
“Whether talking, texting, shopping or paying – we know our customers rely upon – and love – their smartphones,” said Ralph Andretta, Head of North America Branded Cards, Citi. “With the AT&T Access More card, you can earn a statement credit for a brand new phone and get more points every time you make a purchase from AT&T or shop online – on any device.”
In addition to the new phone benefit, the AT&T Access More card also delivers the ability to earn ThankYou Points for purchases, and redeem for a variety of rewards including electronics, gift cards, and more. AT&T Access More cardmembers earn:
3 points per $1 on products and services that are purchased directly from AT&T;
3 points per $1 on all purchases at online retail and travel sites;
1 point per $1 on all other purchases; and
10,000 anniversary bonus points after $10,000 in annual spending.
The AT&T Access More card also delivers a range of built-in benefits from Citi, such as the ability to make purchases using Citi WalletSM and eligible cardmembers can view a complimentary FICO credit score. Other shopping benefits for cardmembers include Damage & Theft Purchase Protection, Extended Warranty, and Citi Price Rewind which searches online retailers’ sites for a lower price for 60 days after you register an eligible purchase, according to AT&T.
“Our customers come to us for the latest and greatest smartphones and the AT&T Access More card is a great way to get one,” added David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility, “This is a really compelling offer when you consider the phone statement credit and ability to earn points with the card. Customers can also take advantage of the Mobile Share Value plan from AT&T, and save $15 or $25 on the monthly access charges for their smartphone, when compared to the monthly access charges for a two-year agreement.”
