You'll automatically receive cashback (usually via BACS) after your contract is connected.
Requires you to take some manual actions to receive e.g. Send in your 6th, 9th & 12th bill to the retailer. These deals can often be the cheapest if you're willing go through the steps.
Cheaper deals may be available if you're happy with a refurbished model.
Better deals may be available if you're an existing customer taking out other services. e.g. you already have Sky TV or BT Broadband. These are not upgrades, and not for existing mobile phone customers.
What type of deal do I need?
Unless you'd like to buy the device outright starting from £233.85 there are two main types of plan:
- These deals are meant for new customers to the network - for example if you're currently on Three but you'd like to switch to BT Mobile. We have 2,882 new customer contract Samsung Galaxy A8 deals available from BT Mobile, O2, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile, Sky Mobile, Three, iD, Vodafone and EE.
If you're an existing EE, O2 or Vodafone customer you can place an upgrade order if you wish to stay with them with no interuptions and keep the same number and SIM. You're usually able to upgrade 30-45 days before the end of your contract depending on your current network. There are 764 of these types of deals currently available.
We've found that in most cases new customer contract deals work out to be the best value. Don't worry about losing your number, the process for transferring is fairly simple. It involves contacting your current network and asking for a PAC code - this is then given to your new network to port your old number to your new SIM.
Check out our guide for a full overview of the pros and cons of each.
How do I order?
After you've made your choice of colour, storage size and the plan that suits you best click the "Get Deal" button on the deal card. You'll be transferred to the retailer's or network's website where you can place your order. Please note that we are only a price comparison service - your order is not placed with us, but with the retailer directly.
What if I change my mind after I order?
If your order hasn't been dispatched yet, then you may be able call the customer service number found on the retailer's site and cancel. If you've already received the phone, you have 14 days after taking delivery to request a return - even if you've opened the packaging and used it. It's equivalent to going into a phone shop and trying their display models before you buy, since you weren't able to do this beforehand having bought online. Some networks may opt to offer even longer evaluation periods to make sure you're fully satisfied with their signal coverage.
