Using Mobile Phone Price Comparison Websites

By | June 4, 2023

Price comparison websites are a popular and effective way to find the best cheap and best value for money deals around for a wide variety of products and services. You can use them to get a good deal on a new mobile phone too, but it is worth taking a few things into account first to make sure that you are getting the most from them. Here is my guide to using these sites:

1) General price comparison shopping websites often have mobile phones as part of what they offer, and they can be OK if you are just looking to buy a handset on a pay as you go or sim free deal, and if you already know what handset you want. But if you want to be able to see all of the handset on the market, and if you want to compare contract deals, it is well worth going to a niche site that only offers price comparison for mobile phones, as they will be much more likely to give you a comprehensive round up of all the deals in the country, and also are more likely to get special offers that you won’t find elsewhere.

2) Unless you are totally focussed on paying the smallest amount of money it is well worth taking a look at the free gift deals. For most handsets there are a wide variety of free gifts from various retailers, and they are often the best value for money deals for what you get compared to the purely cheap deals.

3) If you are looking for a new contract phone then make sure you add up the minutes and texts that you use each month (even if only very roughly) before hand. It is almost always cheaper to pay a bit more on a fixed monthly cost and then get all of your actual usage for free, than to pay for your calls and texts separately each month.

Use these tips and you will be sure to get a great bargain. Happy shopping!
