Deal Alert: Nokia Fatboy charging pillow on sale at AT&T for only $5

If you're looking to pick up a Fatboy Qi charging pillow on the cheap and live in an area which AT&T will ship to, you're in luck. In addition to their $5 deal on the Nokia DT-900 Qi charging plate, AT&T has now added the Fatboy Qi charging pillow to the mix and are also offering it for only $5.

Sadly, it seems the red and black ones are all sold out as of right now but there's still cyan left and that's one heck of a deal. We're in no position to complain about the color at that price. You'll probably want to act fast if you want to grab one. Can't imagine they'll be available for too much longer after this.

Deal Alert: Nokia Fatboy charging pillow on sale at AT&T for only $5

yes, there are few, does an att store here in Puerto Rico sell  it to this price? Or can we get the offer?

The closest at&t store that ONLY has the black charging plate (no fatboys at all) is 45 miles away from where I live :sad_face:

Boy they are really trying to get rid of everything Qi. Damn you AT&T!!!

Picked up 3 of them in various colors this week anyway for my 920. Ordered Tues and got them yesterday. $15! :)

They'll probably improve it some way that makes it so they CAN claim it to be better than the rest.
They could add data transmission, which isn't new, but the only other devices that had it were the HP Touchpad and Pre 3, and it wasn't even enabled on them before they were axed. (And I'm pretty sure it was just an NFC chip at the center of the wireless coils.)
They could also be the first to have wireless charging with a metal housing, if they're using liquidmetal.
And they could make it support all of the major wireless charging standards implemented right now, so it could be used with literally "everything" wireless charging compatible. (I think Broadcom just made a new chip that supports the three top wireless charging standards at once, so this isn't far-fetched.) OR, they could just go proprietary and screw everyone over.
Either way, if they do it, it will take the wireless charging we've known and loved for so long to even greater popularity, which isn't a bad thing.

Probably just speculation, but it would be as good a reason for AT&T to dump everything else as any other reason, I suppose...

Yay, thanks for the heads up! I got 2 of them. Should've gotten 3 now that I think of it... Damn! :D

Did you actually get them?

I received an email just now:

"We regret to inform you that the accessory you've ordered is no longer available. As a result, we have canceled your order."

Screw them. If they don't have them, don't let me order. Annoying.

I think people are starting to get backorder notices on this, which I don't think ATT will fulfill. That's just my hunch... doesn't hurt to try. There also may still be some charging plates for $5 floating around your local stores. I picked up 6 total in black and white. If you order online for in store pickup, you can get 25% off three I think. Dirty cheap.

Because you can spend $15 and have one for the nightstand, livingroom side table, desk in study and still have one left over for your desk at work.  Considering you couldn't even buy one of those for twice the price a few weeks four seems like a modest amount.  I mean this is what wireless charging is about.  Set your phone down most places you sit and it charges.

I ordered a yellow one yesterday, and got my notice that they were sold out today. Yesterday, the website said they were sold out of the cyan ones. Tried again today, not too high of hopes though.

godamnit i wanted the plate.  This cloth based charger could catch fire if it gets too hot.  And what the hell ?? ALL Reds are gone.  Im stuck with blue and i have red lumia :(

Haha ya, I have a yellow 1020 and a cyan plate. Also got cyan and red pillows the other day. Anyone want to trade for a yellow one?

Dude, its a regular charging plate inside of a pillow. Don't want the pillow? Take the charging plate out and throw the pillow at someone you mildly dislike. Problem solved =D

They were out of the Cyan ones yesterday. I ordered a yellow one bacuse it was the only color they had left. My order went through fine, but I got an email today saying they had cancelled it because they were out of stock. Tried again with this one, hope it goes through.

i just ordered 4 Cyan ones online.  Plus 25% off because i ordered 3 or more.  So 4 for $15!!  i hope these actually ship lol i'm also scared of them just being backordered.

 

wait a minute.... what am i going to do with 4 wireless charging pillows?!?! lol

If ATT Strips their next Windows phone of Qi then I'm switching when I replace my 1020. So sick of their lack of updates and forcing their approved wireless charging standard.

I just bought 4 Cyan Fatboys.  Total cost: $16.05.  It was actually $3.75 each, plus tax!  Shipping was free!

Possibly the most useless avcessory I have ever bought. The phone doesn't always charge when on it, even though I've made sure the charging plate is on the top inside. Also it is nothing like a pillow. Hard ugly nylon material.

Took the plate out and have been using it without the pillow for the past year. No charging problems.

I just bought three and to my surprise, there was an additional discount for getting buying 3 accessories. I paid $11.93 ;-)

When I went to go to my ATT store to pick up a charging plate, I noticed that the 920 is no longer being sold in the store. It's been removed from the display, hence the likely reason why they're clearancing these out. They're not carrying any more phones that use them....

Just ordered 4 and only paid $15.90, since AT&T is offering 25% off any 3 or more accessories. No fatboys left, but 4 charging plates for $16, can't beat that.

Try buying online and choose site to store and u might get a store close to you that's what I just did and got two DT-900

Agree it sucks, but they are just trying to clear stock that is laying around collecting dust. If they would price them at this, or even like $10 they would sell so much better. 

Got the two charging plates left at the AT&T store in Eastwood Mall Niles, OH.

Apparently several people had called them and the store employees didn't know they had them.  The girl went in back and looked again and found them in a bin on the top shelf of something.
