While carriers battle it out over who can offer the most 4G LTE data for the lowest price, AT&T is doing its best to lure customers with other incentives -- and keep the subscribers it already has.

On Wednesday, AT&T announced a pair of new device promotions that offer deep discounts on data-connected tablets. What's more, Ma Bell is also extending two current deals through the end of October.

Effective Friday, October 3, new and existing customers can pick up the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE tablet for $1 with any smartphone on its roster.

The fine print, of course, calls for a two-year service agreement for the tablet. Additionally, subscribers must purchase the smartphone on an AT&T Next plan.

A similar deal sees AT&T offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 for $100 with similar requirements. This time the caveat is buying a Samsung smartphone on a Next plan to qualify, as well as committing to two-year contracts.

AT&T is also extending its $100 bill credit promotion through October 31. Available to both new and existing subscribers, AT&T will credit bills within three months of service when purchasing a smartphone on Next plan.

Rounding things out, AT&T will knock $200 off of any iPad with the purchase of any iPhone on a Next plan. As is to be expected, the iPad must be placed on a two-year service agreement. Like the bill credit, this one is good through October 31.
