Nothing for free – Carphone Warehouse

I like promotions, discounts or something for free, but I don’t like when “the free” is something that I actually have to pay for. This time Carphone Warehouse is trying to give me 300 pounds of my own money to spend in their Curry’s shop.

Samsung Galaxy A3 is a great middle range smartphone, ideal to buy as a first phone. There’s actually update coming for A series – we will see new line – in the 2016. Never mind let’s proceed.

Samsung Galaxy A3 nothing for free

Let’s see what CPW has to offer:

  • I choose O2 which has the second cheapest deal with 37.5 pound a month – no upfront cost
  • unlimited minutes, unlimited txt
  • 1 GB of data
  • 300 pounds to spend at Curry’s

Now I go to O2:

  • 24.5 pound a month – no upfront cost
  • unlimited minutes, unlimited txt
  • 1 GB of data
  • (312 pounds save)

And now let’s do the math:

37.5 – 24.5 = 13 pounds 13 x 24 = 312 pounds.

Nothing for free – Conclusion.

Actually if I’d buy this offer directly form O2 – I’d save money. Even if CPW looks cheaper – take your calculator out.
