The no-strings way to save on your next mobile phone

Promotional Feature by UNSHACKLED.com

We’ve all been taught that, if you want to save money on a new mobile phone, you have to work for it – shopping around and haggling for hours on end. Yet after all that, there’ll always be hidden charges you weren’t expecting to have to fork out for, and it’s hard to know just how much extra you’re paying for the phone compared to just buying it outright. We waste around £355 million a year on our phone contracts, so isn’t it time you switched to a cheaper deal with more flexibility?

UNSHACKLED.com is an alternative way to buy. It splits your phone and SIM purchase so you can save hundreds of pounds compared to a traditional contract. Being able to personalise your deal for handsets and tariffs allows you to choose the phone you want without being tied into a specific network. This smart new way of buying also means that you can switch phones whenever you want, however you want.

You won’t even have to compromise on the handset you’ve set your heart on. UNSHACKLED.com offers every phone and SIM tariff on the market, so you can mix and match to suit your needs, with the option of lower upfront costs and lower data allowances. They’re also 100% independent, so you can trust that you’re getting a straightforwardly good deal, not something that’s being pushed on you so someone can collect their commission.

For example, you can buy an iPhone 7 with 20GB and unlimited minutes and texts from UNSHACKLED.com for an upfront cost of just £19 and a monthly cost of £22.20 for the SIM and £26.57 for the phone, compared to Vodafone’s traditional contract of £50 upfront and a £63 monthly cost. Over two years you’d save £373 on this deal from UNSHACKLED.com.

There’s no catch, no strings and definitely no hidden charges. UNSHACKLED.com works by loaning you the cost of a handset and tariff based on your credit score – and because it works with several finance partners, it can offer you the cheapest deal. Whether you’re currently shackled in a contract or already unshackled, you’ll be amazed at how much you can save.
