Pay as you go

Sharp practice?

I'm a bit rusty, so maybe this is now standard practice? Or perhaps the meaning of "on us" has changed since I last looked?

Hello @Annie_N 

 

I hope you are well.

 

Anyone wanting that particular model of phone would do well to go that route looking at the sim free price of around £160+.

Current Phone >

Samsung Z Fold³ 5G.

Previous Phone >

Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G - SM9860.

I am thinking along the same lines as @BandOfBrothers As an example a well know catalogue site sells the phone for £209.00.

 

I wonder if this is even a mistype by Vodafone and they have left a £100,00 of the price and it should be £199.00 with the inclusive BVB. The company could well be making quite a loss on the sale of this phone.

 

Edited to add:  @TJ . Would there be an answer to the question raised on this thread.

Hi all - it does say save £111 so, it could be that it's correct. I'll ask around and see if I can double check 😊

It looks like this was already updated on the 28th September and was a mistake from our end on the website - https://www.vodafone.co.uk/mobile/phones/pay-as-you-go/xiaomi/redmi-note-10-5g

I hope that clears things up, very well spotted @Annie_N 👍

Thanks, @TJ! Glad it was sorted out promptly.

The price now seems to have gone up to something more "realistic." Luckily I wasn't actually wanting to buy, and refraining on principle - just window-shopping!:Winking_smiley:
