Samsung Galaxy S6 - Vodafone - Unlim Min/SMS - 7GB 4G Data - Effective Price Per Month £29.14 (£669.24) READ FULL DESCRIPTION

14
Found 21st Mar 2015
The Samsung Galaxy S6 launch is fast approaching, and so is the end of my contract. I started looking around for deals on the S6 and found this.

PLEASE NOTE - I am fully expecting to get cold votes here as this will not be a deal for everyone.

To get this effective price, you MUST currently have (from what I understand) any Samsung Galaxy phone and a Spotify Premium account.

For the Samsung Galaxy S6 (32GB)
Open the link
Click on the Galaxy S6 Tab
Choose your colour
Select the 32GB model
Select 24 months
Select 4G plan type

At this point, I'll be the first to admit I almost fainted at what they want per month for this.

The top option is 7GB 4G Data, Unlim Text/Mins for £48.50/Month.
Over 24 Months = £1164 (NOT BLOODY CHEAP!)

If you trade in an old Samsung Galaxy Phone, they're offering £5 Off Per Month for 24 Months, dropping it to £43.50/month for 24 months = £1044 (Still not cheap but a bit better!)

Now, I pay for Spotify Premium (£9.99 a month). This contract comes with the option for Spotify Premium account Free for 24 Months. If I therefore turn that around and view it as, I'm still paying my £9.99 a month for Spotify, I can therefore take that off the price off the contract for the phone. (£9.99 * 24 Months = £239.76)
Subtracted from the £1044 for the contract = £804.24 (This is starting to look like a much nicer number!)

Top Cash Back are doing £105 Cashback on All 24m Samsung Galaxy S6 and 24m Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge handsets £43.50+ contacts at Vodafone.
Lets take that off the total price too. £804.24 - £105 = £699.24.

Effective Monthly Cost = £699.24 / 24 Months = £29.135 a pretty damn good price for a brand new hand set if you ask me.

Applying the same deal above to the S6 Edge (64GB) will give you an effective cost of £34.135.
Again this would have 7GB data unlimited Text/Mins.

Yeah fair enough. I haven't actually gone for this deal myself yet. I appreciate some people don't see the point in the latest tech. Some people do.

You can't vote cold because you wouldn't buy it at this price though. Fact is, if you have an old Samsung Galaxy Phone, and a Spotify Premium account, this is by a long shot the cheapest you are going to get this phone at the moment.

If it's a good price in comparison to everywhere else, then it's a good deal for that product, regardless of whether you want it, need it, or would buy it for that price, no?

I agree. Best price you'll manage to find currently. Even without considering spotify deduction . I posted the edge for £730 sim free for a laugh. Crazy crazy prize. However, I still want one. Just not on Vodafone

I've not had any previous experience with Vodafone.

Are they not any good? All i really know about them is that they are now sharing reception with o2, who from personal experience have very good 3G and 4G coverage both indoors and outdoors.

I will give heat to the efforts, but I will wait for a bit longer.

No, I can't say that they are a bad. I just want to go to three. They offer unlimited data and your tariff can be used in various countries. Perfect for me.
My post has gone to - 31, lol. Your post is actually a few hundred pounds cheaper than mine over 24 months and you still go cold? Odd

Haha i'm still waiting for the Apple Fan Boys to show up... That should take it a bit colder still.

TBH was fully expecting it to go cold. When you can get phones like the Moto G 4G for under a third of the price of this you're always going to get the people that just see a phone as a phone turn up and vote cold because its more than they would pay for a phone.

Unfortunately those people are missing the point of the site. It's about whether a price found for an individual product is a good price at one place VS other places, not whether you can get a cheaper, less powerful, worse build quality alternative product but still does essentially the same job, just maybe a bit slower for less. Meh what can you do ey?

I agree with you.
Mines gone cold and it's £30 cheaper than the official Samsung site haha.

Can't win. Lol
Keep us posted on any further developments. I would have taken this deal if on three network.
Have a good weekend

Total and utter disregard for posting guidlines, the headline price is 24 x £48.50 = £1164. I'll get it corrected, but really this should be spammed for being such utter nonsense. Why do people seem to think that the rules simply don't apply to them?

Calm down. I'm sure you've broken some TC's once in your life. I don't think asking everyone to read the full description caused anyone but you a problem.

I agree with mynameisthehulk, the headline price is misleading.

1) The Galaxy trade-in is not really worth £5/month, because the phone you are trading in has some value. (Otherwise I could post a £0 S6 deal with the description saying you need to sell your car to get that price!) According to mobilevaluer a working S4 is worth £96 and S3 is £60. Obviously you risk these values going down if the phones are in poor condition, but the trade-in deal is only worth £120 if your phone is working but has no value. It would be fairer to estimate £60.
2) You shouldn't include TCB in the quoted price because it is not guaranteed - you should put the price without it and then alongside note the possible TCB price.

Its easy to make these mistakes though, as far as I know the rules are not provided when you post a deal. I might even be wrong myself!

I have no idea what you're on about for point 1. Your example of selling your car to get it for free holds absolutely no relevancy to how this deal works in any shape or form. I really don't get what you're getting at. Not only does the offer give you £120 off your new contract, it's more than you'd be getting for your old Galaxy by selling it in any other way. IF you were to sell in another way, the money would be in your bank account. What are you meant to do then? tell the mobile phone company "oh by the way, I have £40 in my account from selling my old galaxy phone. can you make sure when you take the money you don't take THAT £40 please. I don't want it to go towards my phone contract you see!" Unless of course you mean you would want to keep it as spare... in which case it holds zero value sitting in a draw doing nothing gathering dust. The trade in deal is worth £120 because you get £120 for it. simple as that. Which? tells me my car second hand is worth £8000 but if I was looking to sell it and someone offered £12000, I'm getting £12000 for it as you seem to be suggesting all you that deal is worth is the difference between what you could get vs what you actually get.

point 2 is fair enough. I've never not got TCB money but I guess your right there, it's not guaranteed so maybe I shouldn't have included it in the effective price.

Sorry my car comparison as a bit over the top. What you said here is what I meant.

For example, if my old phone was a perfect condition S4 I could get £96 for it without vodafone. That is effectively cash in my bank account which I could put towards monthly payments or whatever I want. Vodafone are offering £120 for it instead, so as part of this deal they are giving me the extra £24 off the total cost of the phone.

That is, although your old phone is currently in the form of a phone, you should consider it as the cash amount it is worth instead. Fair enough, to you it may be worthless and so you consider you have got the full £120 - that is fine. But, you did post this on a deal forum so it is supposed to be reproducable for others.

I do like that Voda do this, because their only conditions seem to be that it is a Galaxy, and is working. So for some people whose phone is pretty old and battered I imagine you can get a lot of value trading the phone in to them. I had a quick look on ebay and can see some like the Galaxy S for about £20, you could possibly buy one of those and get £100 off your contract. I haven't read the full terms but suspect this would work.
