Buyers of certain Samsung smartphones can now get a free Samsung tablet courtesy of AT&T.

As of Wednesday, October 30, AT&T will dole out a free 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet to anyone who buys a Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy Note 3, or Galaxy Note 2. The deal is good for people who opt for the carrier's usual two-year agreement or choose AT&T's Next installment plan. It also requires that customers add the Galaxy Tab 3 to an existing AT&T Mobile Share plan for an extra $10 per month.

The offer is already available through AT&T's retail stores and participating dealers and should soon appear on AT&T's Web site.

Buyers looking to trade in their current smartphone can also earn a $100 AT&T promotion card if they purchase a new phone through the AT&T Next plan. The card can be used toward a new connected tablet, new accessories, or to help pay a wireless bill.

Designed to take advantage of the holiday shopping season, both promotions are due to end on January 9, 2014.
