More cell phone savings, free Internet from AT&T

The wireless wars continue.

That's wonderful, because as long as carriers keep fighting for your business, you'll keep saving big bucks.

Last month, T-Mobile and AT&T offered savings on family plans. Sprint and Verizon the largest carrier, have quietly countered with lower prices and increased data, too.

AT&T ups the ante again, extending savings to individuals and businesses, too.

Customers with one or two lines can now save up to $15 each with new Mobile Share Value plans. That could mean up to $700 in your pocket over two years.

One line costs $65 and two lines are $90. Service includes unlimited talk, text and 2 gigabytes of data, along with unlimited international messaging, a new service.

The carrier is still offering $100 credit on new lines added through April 30.

In February, AT&T lowered the cost of Family Share Value Plans, offering unlimited talk, text and 10 gigs of data for $130 a month for two lines and $15 extra per line up to 10.

T-Mobile announced it will pay up to $650 a line to "break up" with AT&T, Sprint or Verizon.

The bottom line: Check with your carrier to see if you can save.

For small businesses

AT&T just announced free Internet service for small business, worth $400.

Small business can get free U-verse High Speed Internet service up to 6 Mbps when adding a new or existing business line for new Mobile Share Value plan with 10 gigabytes or higher. Opt for faster download speeds to get a $35 monthly credit.

Go to ATT.com/bizinternetoffer for the deal.

Smartphone deals

Don't assume you'll get the best price on hardware from your carrier. Best Buy, Walmart or Target often have the best deals and free gift cards with purchase of smartphones and tablets.

Right now, Best Buy is offering $50 off iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy S4 with new two-year agreements for all carriers.
