AT&T Brings Back Free 1000 Rollover Minute Offer

| News

AT&T offered subscribers 1,000 bonus rollover minutes earlier this year, and now the deal is back again. Like the previous rollover minute offer, AT&T subscribers must text a message to a special number to request the bonus by September 7, 2011.

Free rollover minutes from AT&TAT&T’s 1,000 bonus rollover minutes offer is back

Some AT&T customers began receiving SMS alerts about the promotion on Thursday. Just like the previous promotion, subscribers need to text “Yes” or “yes” to 11113020, and subscribers don’t need to wait for a text message from AT&T before sending the reply.

AT&T’s response message doesn’t say how long it takes before the bonus rollover minutes show up in user’s accounts, although last time around it took about four weeks.

Meh.

If AT&T really wanted to be generous, they’d use my oldest about-to-expire rollover minutes before using the current month’s minutes.

As it is, I rarely use all my minutes anyway.

I took advantage of their previous 1000 minute offer and am wondering if I am qualified for this one. I’ll give it a shot, nothing ventured nothing gained.

AT&T recently gave me, soon to be all wireless customers, free cell to cell calling so minutes are getting less important as most calls are to/from cell phones. Well not free as I still need to pay for my account, but now I don’t have the Overage of Damocles hanging over my calls.

I just received the text and responded with a Yes.

I called AT&T on this and was told it was a scam. If anyone out there has actually seen those 1000 minutes appear in their account, I definitely want to hear. And if you’ve received the text message, I’d really recommend calling customer service before you reply.

The last time they offered this deal this I saw the additional 1000 minutes show up within a few days, a lot of us did. What they are probably doing is using this as a tactic to keep users from switching to a different carrier.

@Sir Harry - please post here when the minutes show up. Like I said, Customer Service at AT&T told me it was a scam and that they were being flooded by calls.

Please post if/when those minutes show up. Like I said, Customer Service at AT&T told me it was a scam and that they’d been flooded with calls. If they were lying to me, that would be pretty shabby. If it’s a scam, it’s also pretty shabby!

I just checked using their iPhone app, but today, the 2nd, is the day when my billing cycle ends and starts so info won’t be available until maybe tomorrow.

AT&T has been very proactive in trying to keep customers. Over the last few month in addition to this second round of free 1000 minutes they have given me a free Femto Cell for the house, and unlimited cell to cell calling.

Not to mention that when I go into their store in my neighborhood they have been very customer friendly. They have a greeter at the door who asks what you need. That person arranges for the appropriate staff to help you. If you have to wait, you are parked on an easy chair and get to watch AT&T infomercials on a digital TV. It is quite a change from the way it used to be.

Finally I just did a web search on this 1000 minute deal and didn’t see where it was not legit. It could be, but probably not.

Anyway, I will make a post here when the minutes show up.

A free Femto cell doesn’t impress me too much. If they included broadband internet with that, that would impress me.

They are in business to make money
