Besides having some good deals on tablets and phones, AT&T will have some accessories to help the tech-enthused and average smartphone user.

If you are looking for a tablet and a phone, customers can receive a free 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, or Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
