Whether you’ve been counting down the days, or are oblivious to all the decorations around the place, Christmas is fast approaching.
While some of you eager beavers may have all your presents bought, there are still a lot of us who are yet to start! With this in mind we took a look at the best phone deals and mobile offers this Christmas.
As usual, mobile phones are likely to make it onto many people’s lists this year; so mobile networks have released various special offers for the festive season.
We’ve looked at what the different networks are offering, so you can narrow down what to put on your Santa list!
Three have a great range of smartphones starting at £49.99 on pay as you go.
The Acer Go is a great option if you’re looking to buy someone his or her very first smartphone. The price (£49.99 on pay as you go) is a great deal for a smartphone that does exactly what you need it to.
Vodafone have pay as you go smartphones starting at just £50, and all smartphones come with a free accessory if you choose to select the £20 or £30 bundles that encompass your calls, texts and data.
The network also has a range of gift bundles, with Netflix, Spotify & Sky Sports Mobile subscriptions, along with 50% off many accessories when purchasing selected phones, tablets and SIM-only plans.
On the stocking filler side of things, we especially like this emergency USB charging pack. Which could come in seriously handy when your phone runs out of battery – usually just as you need it the most!
O2 are clearly in the festive spirit, as they have multiple Christmas offers available, with deals on almost everything, from phones to tablets to mobile accessories to wearable tech.
Pay as you go smartphones on O2 start at £69.99, and bill pay from free.
We really like the deal they have on the pay as you go Samsung Galaxy S4 mini. At only £119.99, it’s compact size and slick design make it an instant winner with us.
You’ll even get a £10 Google Play voucher with your purchase – not that you’ll need that to download the free KillBiller app! Spend it instead on things like your favourite music or movies.
We also think this speaker (pictured above) is the perfect stocking filler. At only £9.99, it’ll be great for playing some tunes if you have your mates around over Christmas!
EE have decided to offer 500MB of data free every month with the purchase of any of these pay as you go phones. With the selected phones starting at only £44.99, we think it’s worth a look!
For all you bill payers out there, EE aren’t forgetting about you. They’ve put together some nice deals on smartphones that give you free Google Play music for 3 months, so you can listen to your favourite Christmas songs all the way to Easter… if you want to that is!
Tesco Mobile has also released Christmas deals on smartphones. With pay as you go smartphones starting at £69, they’re great if you want to increase your club card points. Each pound you spend counts as one club card point, as they say… every little helps.
Tesco seem to be fans of the #selfie. They’re giving away a free selfie stick with the purchase of any Android pay as you go handset – great for getting everyone into those New Years Eve group pictures.
Clearly in the giving mood, Tesco Mobile is also offering free gifts to their customers once they sign up or top up (pay as you go only). Gifts to choose from include Tesco gift cards, magazine subscriptions, Hasbro games, or music tech.
