Benefits of Pay As You Go
In the past, getting a mobile phone with a contract offered you the best deals. Whilst PAYG (pay as you go) customers were stuck with the inconvenience of topping up, no rewards and no added benefits. Being charged 12p per text for PAYG wasn’t much fun, especially if you were typing out War and Peace!
These days, it’s different
However, PAYG has always been popular. Parents are massive advocates of a phone you can keep tabs on. They often favour PAYG for their kids’ handsets. Safe in the knowledge that whilst it lets them stay in touch with their child, it also means their child isn’t able to rack up huge phone bills. So for parents, PAYG can offer a cost saving option too.
Another great benefit of having a PAYG handset is that you are not tied into an expensive mobile phone contract. Instead you’re free to top up how much and how often you want to. Plus, because you’re not paying monthly for the handset as you would with a contract phone, you can upgrade your handset whenever you like – making you the boss!
Don’t forget PAYG gives you unbeatable flexibility. Once you’ve got your SIM card that number is yours and you’re ready to go.
PAYG customers can buy bundles too. Instead of working your way through your credit, you can buy a bundle that offers an allowance of minutes, texts and data. These usually last for 30 days or a month, so great for flexibility if you need a higher or lower allowance next time.
Pay As You Go really does offer a clever cost effective solution for loads of different people. So it’s well worth checking it out a little more.
