Data Perks, brought to you by AT&T and Aquto, is an app through which you earn bonus data – measured in megabytes (MB) – by completing a featured offer, like taking a survey or completing a purchase. Transfer some or all of your earned MB (up to 1,000MB per bill period) to your AT&T plan to use within your current bill period.
There is no setup process; when you open the app for the first time, the app will verify whether you’re eligible to use Data Perks. Once you pass the verification screen, you can begin earning MB.
Please note: You need to have SMS text messaging enabled on your AT&T account to use Data Perks, and you must sign up for Data Perks with your AT&T mobile phone number (rather than a virtual phone number like Google Voice).
Earn: You earn data by completing an offer, like taking a survey or shopping. Once you have earned data by successfully completing an offer, your data is stored in your Data Perks account.
Transfer: When you want to use the data stored in your Data Perks account, transfer it from your Data Perks account to your AT&T account. Data must be transferred in 25MB increments (up to 1,000MB per bill period) and, once transferred, will be available to use within your current bill period. As of 4/25/16, we changed the way that MB are earned and transferred for Mobile Share Value plan and other shared-data users. Data Perks users on the same shared-data plan earn MB individually, but transferred MBs are shared by all shared-data lines on the same account.
Please note: Unused transferred data automatically expires at the end of the bill period in which it was transferred. Unused transferred data does not

Yes, Data Perks users can transfer a maximum of 1,000MB per bill cycle (in 25MB increments).

Yes, unused transferred data expires at the end of the bill period in which you transferred it. It does not roll over for future use and cannot be deposited back into your Data Perks account. Unused transferred data also expires if you change your account type to an ineligible account type (prepaid or business). Additionally, if you change your billing account number (for example, you transfer your billing responsibility to another account in the middle of your bill cycle), your unused transferred data expires.

No, when you surf pages within the Data Perks application – including all menu, category, transfer, and help pages – the data used does not count against your wireless data plan.
Yes, unless you are connected to Wi-Fi, data used outside of the Data Perks app to complete an offer does count against your wireless data plan; however, each offer already includes a few extra MB to help offset the data you use while completing the offer.
Yes, unless you are connected to Wi-Fi, data used to download the game or app will count against your wireless plan. Once you successfully complete all required steps, your Data Perks account will be credited the same amount of data that you used from your wireless plan to download the game or app. Some offers may contain steps beyond the download of the game or app, such as registering, playing for a certain amount of time, etc. You are not reimbursed for the data used to complete these additional steps.
Yes, Data Perks works over Wi-Fi. When you first set up your Data Perks account, the app needs to send an SMS from your smartphone to check your eligibility to use Data Perks. Some devices allow sending an SMS over Wi-Fi while others do not. For best results, turn off Wi-Fi during your initial account setup to ensure that the eligibility SMS is sent over AT&T’s cellular network and not Wi-Fi. Once you’ve passed the eligibility check, you may turn on Wi-Fi again.
