Before anyone gets too excited about this offer, the 10% or 5% rewards offer applies only to payments on your AT&T and Cingular phone bills and to certain AT&T consumer products purchased directly from AT&T or Cingular. It is not obvious that there are any rewards for non-AT&T purchases.
But it's OK if you are paying an AT&T phone bill.
• Your AT&T Universal Platinum Card account (Card Account) will receive a savings based upon eligible transactions appearing on your current month's billing statement. The only eligible transactions are AT&T consumer products and/or services and Cingular bill payments. AT&T consumer products and services must be purchased through 1-800-222-3111, 1-866-246-4852, www.att.com, www.telephones.att.com, www.cingular.com, Cingular Company owned stores or AT&T customer service centers. Purchases from independent Cingular dealers are not eligible, unless they are for payment of Cingular service. The savings will show on your Card Account as long as your Card Account is open and current. However, if your Card Account is no longer open or current, you will not be able to earn these savings. • Unless you are participating in a limited-time promotional offer, you will earn 5% on eligible AT&T purchases. For the first year of cardmembership, you will earn 10% on eligible AT&T purchases.

Now if we could only sweet-talk some CSRs into capping the 3% fee on BT's, you could use the card for rewards for 11 months and then request a 12 month 0% BT as well. Great find!

Partially wishful thinking, but I said the same in the winter when I got the no annual fee PPE card with 0% BT w/ fee capped at $250: a miracle occurred.

I hate to threadcrap, but I want to put out a caveat emptor on the AT+T card, it is notorious for *not* giving the 5% rewards.
I battled them for 3 months, but apparently "ATT phone service" on my statement does not count as "AT+T services" eligible for 5%.
The card is now socked.
[edit : here is the link to the FW ATT-angst thread
I can't see a way they could deny an iPhone purchase as being eligible for 5%. Nothing in the T&C's prohibit it. Looks like this could be a nice $30 bonus off the purchase price. That, and 10% off the bill each month make it pretty tempting.
