Mobile contracts – Where are the best offers?

Knowing what your needs are will help you decide what offer is best for you. Do you use all your available data each month? What about the minutes?

If you’ve been with the same provider for a while, a good tip is to call them up and see how they can thank you for your loyalty – you could get a free update! Plus get up to £60 back for your kids when buying with KidStart at EE, Vodafone, O2, and many more.

When it comes to devices, Apple and Samsung always lower the price of their phones when a new version is released (up to 2% back).

Insurance – Don’t be afraid of switching

Insurance companies normally offer very good prices during the first year of membership to attract new clients – make sure to take advantage of it and clock up some savings while making the switch to another provider.

Also, if you get different types of insurance from the same brand – car and home, for example – the price will normally be lower.

You can earn up to £663 back with LV=, up to £36 with John Lewis Insurance and up to £106 with Aviva.
