Is your mobile phone company giving it all away?
Desperate times call for desperate measures. We're struggling through the days right now, and you've no doubt checked and re-checked your monthly budget to see how many more precious pennies you can squeeze out of it. So you may have found yourself questioning whether you really need a mobile phone or, at the very least, whether you can get a better deal.
But spare a thought for your multi-billion pound pan-global telecommunications operator too. Actually don't, but remember they're suffering because of the recession too, and short of offering you a hand job on your older sister's double bed while she's down the youth club, many will do anything to keep your business.
We know this, because just yesterday one of the Bitterwallet team terminated their mobile contract with Three. After much begging and pleading by the Retentions department, Three offered 10 months free line rental. We've heard plenty of tales of mobile operators dropping their trousers to keep your business, so we're asking you to share your recent experiences to help every Bitterwallet reader get a bargain. Tell us what network you're on and:
- What you were offered to stay with your current operator
- What they would and wouldn't negotiate over
- Whether you were able to squeeze additional benefits out of them - upgrades, data etc
Let us know details of what you wanted from them and what they were prepared to give you, and hopefully we can all squeeze a few more pence out of our budgets next month.
