Mobile Phone Free Gift ConApril 29th, 2012 | Posted by in Features
OK, time for another rant!
How do these websites get away with this con?
Take a look at this photo, it is a screenshot of buymobile.net taken today, Sunday 29th April 2012, and shows a One S phone on O2′s £41 On and On contract, at £41 a month. The deal is unimportant here, but its an OK deal, you get the phone for free and get £140 cashback.
Now, take a look at this photo, taken seconds after the last one.
Looking at the same plan, £41, O2 On & On, but this time I selected a “Free” Acer Laptop.
Free? Well, now you have to pay £279.99 for the phone, and you don’t get the £140 cashback. Making that “Free” laptop actually £419.99
Surely this must be illegal?
