AT&T is ready to start ‘thanking’ its customers, with the first phase of the Thanks program kicking off today. Unlike T-Mobile Tuesdays, which is available for all postpaid and prepaid customers, AT&T Thanks is currently exclusive to postpaid customers, which is something to keep in mind if you ever plan on switching carriers or are attempting to weigh your options when seeing which carrier is right for you.
As for what AT&T is thanking its customers with, phase one is a 2-for-1 movie ticket deal. If there is a movie you would like to see with a friend or loved one at an AMC theatre or Regal theatre (the two largest chains in the US), all you need to do is purchase one regular general admission ticket via AT&T’s dedicated redemption site, then receive an extra ticket free of charge. There are no apps to download or server malfunctions to deal with.
Beyond movies, AT&T Thanks is also granting pre-sale ticket access for select shows via Live Nation. This perk won’t be available until later this year, but could be a good way to ensure you see a few of the hottest acts across the country. Note that it is only pre-sale access, and not free concert tickets.
AT&T claims that this is only the beginning and they will be introducing new ways of thanking their customers later down the road.
Have at it, folks.
