Free AT&T hotspot w/ 50GB of data for businesses w/ EIN

2

AT&T is offering a free mobile hotspot device with 50GB of LTE data for 30 days for businesses with a valid EIN (though what constitutes a valid EIN is a bit murky as seen below). As I recently created an LLC and I’ve wondered about AT&T hotspot coverage where I live, I happily signed up for this.

Quick Thoughts

I saw this deal when Doctor of Credit posted it last night and the only comment at the time was from a reader who noted being unable to sign up with their EIN because the AT&T site seemed to suggest that it needed to start with a 9 (the blank space below says “9xxxxx”).

The problem there is that my EIN does not start with the number 9. I kept getting an error saying that my EIN was not valid when I entered it correctly, so I eventually I just changed the first digit to a 9. That did the trick as it moved to the next page of the process. On the next page, you have to enter the business information and despite the leading 9 suggested again, I was able to enter my correct EIN in the blank on that second page.

My best guess is that the first page is just a verification tool, but once they have verified that you have an EIN (which they think must start with a 9), you can enter the accurate EIN on the second page. I assume that second entry is the one that actually gets associated with your account.

I placed the order and received an initial email confirming it was placed and then a second email saying the order was confirmed and would be shipped soon.

I don’t particularly need this hotspot but wanted to check it out and compare to my T-Mobile home Internet. It may also be useful for me because AT&T has wider coverage on the rural rounds in my immediate vicinity, so I should be able to be more productive in the car for the next month (while my wife drives).

Note that T-Mobile offers the same thing to people who want to test out T-Mobile coverage and you don’t need a business. This one mostly caught my eye because of just recently setting up a new LLC that qualified.
