Looking to save a bit of cash on a new phone this year?
We know the struggle. Finding a decent deal on a good smartphone that has everything you need without over-paying is tricky, but here’s a secret to save you some money…
That secret is: buy a refurbished handset. Honestly, you can save huge amounts of cash and we’ve found a pretty good refurbished handset for sale on Mobiles.co.uk that can save you up to £205 on the Samsung Galaxy S9.
There are also discounts on the iPhone 8 and iPhone XR on either O2 or Vodafone. Check out our picks of the bunch below.
The best deal we spotted on the website will get you a refurbished Galaxy S9 (64GB) with 3GB of data and unlimited texts and calls for £15 up front and £26 a month on O2.
This ultimately means you save £205 on the regular retail price.
With all these handset deals, they’ve been refurbished to a ‘Grade A’ standard, meaning Mobiles.co.uk guarantees their “as-good-as-new” status.
Mobiles.co.uk says its refurbished handsets are “inspected and reconditioned by expert technicians to ensure they’re in full working order”.
They also arrive with the same warranty and change-of-mind benefits as regular mobile purchases, so you’re basically receiving a huge discount on a really good, working handset.
These deals are only available while stocks last, so get on it quick if you’re looking at getting a new phone.
If you want a little more data on your S9, you can go for this other deal with Vodafone. With it, you’ll get 5GB of data and unlimited texts and calls for £25 up front and £24 a month after that, saving £174.
As mentioned, this deal is on Vodafone and is once again refurbished with an “as-good-as-new” certificate.
But what if you aren’t into Android devices? Well, the iPhone XR and the iPhone 8 are both reduced as refurbished models too.
The iPhone XR (128GB) with 30GB of data and unlimited texts and calls is available for £50 up front, and £37 a month. You end up saving £75 on this offer.
Frustratingly, this handset is currently out of stock as of writing (April 15), but keep checking back to see if they add more.
Finally, the iPhone 8 (64GB) has been refurbished and will cost £75 less than usual. You can get 5GB of data on Vodafone with unlimited texts and calls for £50 up front and £26 a month.
