AT&T Thanks Launches Its First Freebie Offer

AT&T Thanks Launches Its First Freebie Offer

The second biggest wireless carrier in the United States is debuting the first giveaway deal of its new AT&T Thanks rewards program. In this offer, the mobile service provider is offering one free movie ticket to customers when they pay for the first ticket at full price. It might be interesting to some that the offer is being made on a Tuesday this summer season and is called Ticket Twosdays (what say you, T-Mobile?) and at AMC or Regal cinemas. In autumn, AT&T is also planning to debut another perk that will give its subscribers the opportunity to get hot Live Nation concert tickets before they go on sale to the general public.


With regards to AT&T’s movie ticket deal, there are some conditions though. One is that the movie tickets mentioned earlier are only good for 2D films at theaters owned by AMC Theaters and Regal Entertainment group, and are generally made available while supplies last. Also, the deal is off limits AT&T’s prepaid customers, data only subscribers, and employees. In other words, only postpaid subscribers can take full advantage of this offer. Oh, and if the AT&T Thanks rewards program is suddenly discontinued, the free movie tickets will bite the dust, too.


As for the advance Live Nation ticket perk, it has some caveats, but not as much as the movie ticket deal. Eligible AT&T Thanks customers can get to enjoy early access to concert stubs on Live Nation before they are made available to the masses. For those who are postpaid subscribers of AT&T, they will not need to sign up or opt in in order to avail of this concert ticket perk. 


Obviously, the AT&T Thanks rewards program will not just stop with free movie tickets and advance Live Nation tickets. AT&T is looking to add more offers, such as device and accessory giveaways and discounts, data freebies, and a whole lot more in the coming months. But will AT&T’s rewards program be able to truly compete with T-Mobile’s Uncarrier 11 program (which includes T-Mobile Tuesdays)? What T-Mobile is offering is certainly tempting (complimentary stock in the company, in-flight Wi-Fi free of charge and text messaging on Gogo enabled flights, and a mobile app that promises free Wendy’s Frostys, Vudu movie credits, and other alternating perks. But T-Mobile’s program has been beset with all sorts of hiccups. Perhaps AT&T’s program has a chance after all.
