There are a large number of phone retailers offering mobile phones with free laptops, the key is finding the best deal for you. The first thing you must ask yourself is whether or not you are just getting the phone contract in order to get a free laptop. If this is the case then think again. Although the stores say that you get a free laptop, the cost is actually hidden within the phone contract that you will be paying for the next 24 months. So, if you’re just looking to buy a laptop on finance and pay it back on a monthly basis you would be better off checking out some online catalogues such as The Brilliant Gift Shop or Littlewoods as atleast then you can choose the laptop you want.
If you happen to be looking for both a mobile phone and a new laptop then this is the ideal solution for you. A simple calculation shows that you will save money buying both of them together than separately although the downside is that you don’t get to choose the laptop yourself. Another point to mention is that you will rarely find one of these deals without a 24 month contract. This is because they need you to pay off the laptop whilst keeping the monthly rates low enough to be appealing. So it is very important to choose a phone that you are going to be happy with for the next 2 years.
One final point to mention is to always check with the retailer you are buying from BEFORE you buy as you may find that you can’t get the free laptop until you’ve made 3 months worth of payments or after you have returned a voucher that comes with the phone.
