Can’t live without your mobile but dread your monthly bills? You’re not alone.
The watchdog, Which? estimates that 75% of Brits are on the wrong contract and collectively wasting £5.4 billion a year. The good news is that smart tools like CTRLio are helping you fight back by taking the hassle out of finding better, moneysaving deals.
How to get your best mobile phone deal
Know what you use
Paying for unused data, minutes and texts or being charged for going over your allowance are the biggest causes of overspending. To get the best deal, you need to know your actual usage. CTRLio can help you find this out in under a minute without any boring forms or guesswork.
Change contracts regularly
Your contract is often set up to cover the cost of your handset. Once your contract term ends, your handset is paid off. But if you don’t change plans, you’ll over pay. CTRLio can send you a text reminder a month before your contract expires. So you never have to overpay for a handset again.
Consider a SIM only deal
Most people could save over £300 a year by switching to a SIM only deal. So if your phone is in good condition and you’re happy to keep it for another year, a SIM only deal could be the way to go.
Know your login details
Your online bills contain all the information you need to find better, tailored deals. Meaning your login details are crucial. If you don’t know them, go to your provider’s account page and click on the forgotten details link. This will guide you through setting up a new password and/or username.
Networks are constantly changing their deals and the right provider for you a year ago might not be the best option now. CTRLio searches thousands of deals daily to bring you the best price plans for your actual needs. In just 60 seconds you could save an average of £159 a year on a phone contract or £351 on a SIM only deal*.
