Three gets into the World Cup spirit with lower prices while England’s in
Upfront costs roll back to £19.66p = 1966!
The World Cup is just weeks away and if you can’t be there in Brazil then at least you might be able to get a good deal on a smartphone from Three.
The network is lowering the upfront cost on a number of high end handsets to just £19.66, but only while England are still in the World Cup. The small print states that the offer could end on the 24th, 28th or 29th of June or on the 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th, 12th or 13th of July and that it will be withdrawn within three days of the relevant date.
That cunningly chosen £19.66 price is no accident, seeing as 1966 was the last time England won, and it’s available on the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, iPhone 5S, Sony Xperia Z2, iPhone 5C, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Nokia Lumia 925, Sony Xperia Z1, LG G2, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and Google Nexus 5.
The actual contract prices for each of those handsets are of course variable. The likes of the Nexus 5 and LG G2 start at £20 per month, with 1GB of data, 600 minutes and unlimited texts, while at the other end of the spectrum the Samsung Galaxy S5 starts at £36 per month with unlimited data, unlimited texts and 600 minutes.
While the World Cup hasn’t even started yet the deal seemingly has, so if you fancy a bargain you’re best off snapping one up sooner rather than later. Hopefully England won’t be knocked out too early (or at all), but you never know, so it’s not worth risking missing out.
