SIM-only deals that will save you money

Get the most minutes, texts and data for less!

Your phone is important. We all use them throughout our daily lives for staying in touch, navigating, and surfing the web. To make sure you get the talk time, data, and extra perks you want without spending too much, it's essential to pair your phone with a good network and SIM card.

If you're all about saving money, our top suggestion is to buy your phone outright and go for a SIM-only plan instead of locking yourself into a pricey 12 to 24-month contract. Yes, you'll have to fork out a decent chunk of cash upfront, but in the long run, you'll save even more, and you'll have the freedom to switch your phone network whenever you fancy (your future self will definitely appreciate it, take our word for it). Check out these awesome SIM-only deals we found online:
