New ASDA Mobile Rates - 8p per min, 4p per text, 5p per mb!!

32
Found 2nd Oct 2013
ASDA Mobile are in the process of converting to EE and with this brings new fantastic rates for PAYG top ups and all new 30 Days bundles.. The rates and bundles are as follows;

8p per minute
4p per text
5p per mb

Bundles:
£5 - 100 mins, 2000 texts, 100mb data
£5 - 500mb data
£10 - 250 mins, 2000 texts, 250mb data
£15 - 500 mins, 2000 texts, 500mb data
£20 - 1000 mins, 2000 texts, 1GB data

These will be all activated from the 28th October and anyone on ASDA mobile at the moment will be able to request the new sim card by texting SIM to 61111

Enjoy

Your phone won’t stop working when we change networks – you’ll still be able to top up as normal until the end of January 2014, and service won’t end until the end of April 2014 – but we’d really like you to join us on the new Asda Mobile. Even if you choose not to come with us straight away, we’ll still send you all the information you’ll need so you can changeover at a pace that suits you.

Probably better going with Tesco Mobile if you're going for a tariff with a half decent amount of data for the same price (£10)

GiffGaff if you need to stay with EE

The rates aren't exellent in fact they are bad.
Example:
Light user
100 min/month@8p/min= £8
100 texts/month@4p/text= £4
100MB/month@5p/MB= £5
TOTAL=£17
And for £17 elsewhere you can get at least triple the amounts.

Have you looked at 3's 321 scheme. 3p/min, 2p/text 1p/mb

OR

As the original poster pointed out, you can get the above quantities you list for a light user, but with 2000 texts for just £5 in a bundle. If it weren't for the free GiffGaff to GiffGaff calls, this would beat their £5 HokeyCokey hands down.

Or go with ovivomobile for even cheaper. Asda use Vodafone, so if your phone is locked to them, then ovivo is a simple switch.

FYI Asda have switched from Vodafone and now use EE.

Giffgaff are basically the same as Tesco, they both run on O2.

Thought GiffGaff was EE. Apologies, my mistake.

You point out the bundle. I was talking about "fantastic" PAYG rates.

Paying £10 a month for 500 mins, 5000 texts and 2GB data with Tesco. Granted this was a special deal and it's usually 1GB data for that price, but even then, these prices don't compare.

Banned

Three pay as you go = 3p minute any network, 2p txt and 1p per mb data,

Been with Asda on a PAYG for a year or two, because I don't need data and the calls (especially to mobiles) and texts are cheap. Still don't need data but might consider the £5 bundle as it will do me just fine.

Too little , too late Asda mobile. Switched to tesco mobile when Asda jacked up there prices from this so called 'New' rate.

A lot of you are forgetting these are 30 day pay as you go bundles, the contract SIM cards will be coming early 2014 and I am pretty certain they will be as good as if not better than a lot of offers people have posted about..

Asda needs to beat Ovivo offer first in order to get some heat... Too cold here (_;)

Are you on commission?

Not happy, I have a locked Vodafone handset.
I don't make a lot of calls so the standard tariff suits me but will need to either unlock, replace or change providers

Three Network is better

3p min call
2p text
1p mb

As a very light user, my main concern is getting a PAYG package with top ups that do not expire after 30 days. Does anyone know if Asda or 3's top up have a time limit on them?

Me too, but after reading what it says on the deal link then I think their standard tariff will be just like the existing one
Can't comment on the three deal though

With the three networks 321 why would anyone want Asda's.

But even at Three's fantastic 321 rates, the light user you exampled would be paying £6 per month, and with the allowances on the £5 Asda bundle would be paying £14. I agree however, that the 321 PAYG offer is fantastic for very light users.

Could be a very profitable kick up the **** to move to OVIVO... free for 150 min, 250 sms & 500MB - no brainer.

Hold the bus folks!!! Does that mean free unlock codes? If you are on Asda, will they have to unlock your phone? Or is it done via a different lock than Vodafone network? I am a little rust on my NCK, SPCK & the other 2...

Also is there an angle to request refunds of credit? i.e. EE has terrible signal in my house...

With the Three 321, I would have to spend a minimum of £10 every 30 days

With Asda Mobile (currently) I spend on average £1 per week (let's call that £5 per month)
The Asda Top-Ups don't expire

So the saving is quite significant if you just make the odd call here and there

I have been looking at OVIVO and toggle which look interesting and could well be worth the move.

No

newasdamobile.com/pag…aqs

I put £10 on my three payg sim. Credit does not run out. On top of this I got 150mb of free data and 600 free texts as a thankyou for putting £10 on the sim. The free data and texts run out after 60days but is used first before the £10 top up. So even by there 2p calls and 1p per mb that's £13.50 worth of freebies.

So someone with better maths can work out how that effects cost of usage

Yes I was wrong, it isn't clear on the first page I looked at but delving through the price guide I found this...

For Pay As You Go customers, Top-ups have no expiry date and Add-ons are valid for 30 days (excludes certain Internet add-ons) from the date and time of activation (but you must remember to activate them within 90 days of date of purchase)


Thanks for pointing this out, maybe Three would do better to make this clearer as it makes a massive difference to people like me.

me, NO signal on three at my home address, so I want asda..

Don't think they need to, credit doesn't normally run out on any PAYG tariff, at least none I've ever seen. Vanish if you let the SIM expire but not time out itself.

Still have usable credit from 5 years ago on my backup "3" SIM.

You yougsters - when pay & go first came out, you had to pay for airtime (e.g. something like £7.50 just to have service for 30 days)! I vaguely remember reading the vodafone leaflets - was very complicated!

3 is 3G only. If you have a spare glovebox 2g phone, Asda is much better.
