Awesome O2 iPhone XR £38pm & 30GB Data £75 Upfront Cost - Deal Of The Century £987 @ Mobiles

33
Posted 14th Dec 2018
Came across this deal on Mobiles.co.uk, cheapest iPhone XR with big data that I could find.

£38pm for 24 months. You have to pay £75 upfront, but they will give you £75 immediate cashback, so it's effectively free. What's more, go through top cash back and get £60 off too!

£38 x 24 = £912, minus the 60 takes it to £852 over the 2 years, bargain!

Got my last few phones with these guys, never been let down before, this deal is worth it!

Great deal, have some heat shame it’s not the Xs max which I’m holding out for the 256gb around the £50 a month mark
Not bad, but you could get it on Vodafone (80GB) for £660 via redemption on Black Friday:

Hoping there will be similar offers in the new year.

Can you get it now?
No dice my friend.

No, hence the: 'Hoping there will be similar offers in the new year'

If something has been almost £200 cheaper quite recently with the added bonus of more data and the Vodafone entertainment package I don't think it's entirely unreasonable to make a comparison.

not only this but Vodafone are shocking whereas O2 are a decent provider (bar their recent connectivity issues).
Also I personally think the 128GB at £125 w/ the same 75 auto cashback is a much better deal (£50 for an extra 64GB)
Although not for everyone, ive just got this with three. Free handset, 100gb data, Unlimited mins and texts, £31 per month. I upgraded from sim only but didn't really have to push too hard to get this.
The big screen is really good, but best thing is the Face ID and the attention detection is amazing. So like you can have it in front of your face but look away, then swipe up and it just waits, then when you look at the phone then it unlocks to home screen. The screen also stays on while you are looking at it rather than time-based turn off. The haptic touch is actually really good and effortless to use cause its length of time and not force like 3D touch which I found awkward to use. Overall much better than the XS and best thing is no crappy pentile OLED screen that suffers burn-in.

Out of interest what contract were you on? I'm currently on a rolling deal of 12GB for £12 after the 12 month contract expired.

Presumably you got it on a 24 month contract?

Yeah i was on a 100gb rolling sim only aswell, i went on the complaints chat and said i wanted a deal similar to the black friday vodafone one. Took some persistance but got there in the end.
Thanks, quite happy with Three so might wait for a decent deal and ask them to match.
Edited by: "nicks99" 14th Dec 2018
Correct me if I am wrong, but there was (even if briefly) a deal with claimable cashback at 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 month marks which effectively made it £696 over the course of 2 years on black friday? I believe data was very generous too. And then Xs was available on 100gb data plan for around £1000 over the course of 2 years (£970ish with cashback if I recall correctly).
Obviously this is a good deal at the moment but makes it hard to look at anything that's more than it was on black friday especially as these phones are becoming older moving into next year.

Just come off the phone after half hour. Only offered £42 pm zero upfront. 30gb. Data.
Retention’s too.
Mind I only have a 4gb sim only at the min with them which is due upgrade.

I mentioned ur deal of which they said it never exists and could not be offered. Typical answer really.

They did however offer me a further 12 months sim only 30gb 4g data unlimited mins and txts for £15 per month.

Didn’t sound too bad. May give the iPhone 6plus another year. 😄
Your deal would’ve swayed me for a new handset but not the £40ish.

If you try the complaints chat instead your might have more luck. I said to them that i wanted similar to the Vodafone deal and eventually they gave in. I had to take the deal at £53 per month, and then the complaints team added the discount so its £31 per month.

Smashing deal. How long have you been with them for? I’m sim only and tried to upgrade to XR 24m but didn’t get anywhere close to this, certainly nothing worth considering. Been with them 5yrs

I've been with them about 5 years probably. I originally messaged on the complaints chat, and got offered the deal through that. So might be worth trying that.

Tried that spent best part of 45mins and after numerous “final offers” only got it down to £5pm discount + £100 credit to account. Calculates to £52pm + £100credit for 8GB contract = £1148 over 2yrs. Definitely not worth it!

Arg, you should have looked on Black Friday, I got my XS Max 256gb for £150 upfront £38 a month for unlimited calls, texts and 90GB of data month + global roaming plus.

Honestly try again. Ive just been on chat and complained i wasnt offered the free airpods, managed to get £135 bill credit instead. So works out equivalent £25.38 per month.36513998-FF8hr.jpg36513998-fHjj0.jpg

Wow!! Less than 5mins from the “we’ll ensure you leave happy message” to £31pm

That’s insane! Will definitely try again.

Did you quote a Vodafone deal or something else to get it to £31. All of mine have been for only 8GB data too not 100Gb.
Also danknott5445 I didn’t realise three offered free AirPods with their XR contracts
I just said i didnt like how vodafone and o2 were offering much better prices and due to being a loyal customer id like something similar.
I said the same. They honestly come back about 4-5 times offering me a new “final” offer... which turned out to be more expensive than anybody else. Will try again tomorrow. Thanks
