Since November 2017, AT&T has offered customers the chance to get the 32GB Apple TV 4K at no extra cost when they sign up and pay for either four months or three months of DirecTV Now. Since this means you pay just $105 for an Apple TV 4K (under the current offer), it’s been the best deal available online for Apple’s latest streaming box. According to our affiliate, an end date for this sale is set for one week from today, May 31, but AT&T has been known to extend these expiration dates in the past.
Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.
Still, it’s worth a heads up about the potential end of a great offer. If you haven’t yet taken advantage of the savings, follow these steps:
- Visit DirecTVNow.com’s landing page for the deal
- Click “Redeem & Stream”
- Select the “Live a Little” package to get the Apple TV at the lowest possible price
- Choose if you want to add another stream and premium channels, or click “Skip for now”
- Click “Add to plan” under the Apple TV 4K box in the Special offer section
- Click “Continue” and go through the account creation and checkout processes
It’s important to note that the deal is for new subscribers only, but existing subscribers can claim it by using an alternative email address from their original account, or by setting up an iCloud email alias. Once ordered, the Apple TV 4K arrives in the mail within a few weeks, and those who don’t want to continue paying for DirecTV Now beyond the three months offered in this deal can cancel the service before the fourth month is billed and keep the Apple TV 4K.
Other deals today include a collection of Internet and cable bundles from AT&T, a few of which also appear to be ending once June rolls around. Depending on local availability for AT&T’s services, anyone who bundles DirecTV and AT&T Internet, with a 24-month TV agreement, can get up to $300 in Visa Reward Cards. A similar offer is available for AT&T’s U-Verse service (with a 12-month agreement stipulation), and those who simply switch to DirecTV without bundling any other services can still get $200 in Visa Rewards Cards, if they sign a two-year agreement.
There’s also a pair of deals over at Costco kicking off this week, including $120 off Apple’s 10.5-inch iPad from Mid 2017. With the savings, you can get the 256GB model for $649.99, down from $769.99. Additionally, Costco has the 3rd Generation Nest Learning Thermostat for $149.99, down from around $200 and one of the best prices currently available online.
Comparatively, Nest is selling the device directly on its storefront for $50 off for Memorial Day, priced at $199.99, and the Nest Thermostat E has been marked down by $20, to $149.99. Both come with a free Google Home Mini when purchased on Nest.com during the limited sale.
