Best retention deal ever?
So 2 years back i signed up with O2 for a secondary contract to use in case of emergencies. (basically it was a back up sim) before Ovivo and the like came out.
The deal was £10.50pm for 50 mins/250 texts and a free HTC Desire S which was worth £350 at the time. Total contract cost came to £252 and i was able to sell the phone for £310.
So just now i was talking to O2 and they gave me a free refurbished Sony Xperia T (worth around £300) on £8pm for the same deal i'm currently on. And then with a £50 bill credit which takes the theoretical cost down to £5.90pm which comes to £142 over 2 years.
So i'm happy. Was planning on joining ovivo but can't say no to a free phone, even if it is refurbished. Obviously it's not the best deal ever but i'm happy with the Xperia T (which i might sell anyway) Plus if i cancel the contract now i get VAT off which means i'll have only paid £115 for the phone once i got the £50 back.
Anyone else got any good retention deals?
