We’ve managed to undercut EE’s best Black Friday phone deal by £400
The problem with Black Friday is it can be difficult to know whether you’re really getting a deal and the truth is, quite often you’re probably not. Especially when it comes to phone contracts.
Take, for example, a couple of EE’s best Black Friday contract deals. The network is giving away a free Google Home or Beats X headphones with some of its contracts and, while they might look great at first glance, when you work out the cost over the full 24-month term, they’re not quite so tantalising.
By picking the best of Black Friday deals elsewhere, we’ve managed to beat EE’s deals by more than £400. You need to buy the hardware outright, but the savings are much bigger in the long run.
