Unfortunately many phone retailers don’t offer a free iPad with a mobile phone contract. This is because leading up to Christmas, Apple know that the demand will be high and therefore don’t want people getting them for free. However, there are many other tablet PC’s that you can get for free including the new Motorola Xoom 2, the Sony Tablet S, the Nexus 7, and the Blackberry Playbook.
Like all other free gifts you’ve ever been given, there is always a catch. In this case, you will of course be paying for the tablet with each monthly payment for your mobile phone contract. However, if you were to check how much the phone contract would be without the tablet and then add the price the tablet you will most likely find that to get them both together is cheaper than buying the separately.
For example, say you want a Samsung Galaxy S2 with a Motorola Xoom 2. You could get this deal on a 24 month contract with unlimited calls and texts for £42/m. This works out as a total price of £1008. Now, without the Xoom, you can get a Samsung Galaxy S2 on the same tariff for £34/m. This works out at £816. If we then add the price of a Motorola Xoom 2 (£330) we get a total price of £1146. So, you can see that you can save over £100 by buying both of them together!
Of course, when looking to get a free Tablet with a mobile phone contract you must first determine what’s most important. Getting the tablet that you really want or getting the mobile phone that you really want. Choosing a low-end mobile phone will make everything much cheaper for you as well as improving you chances of being approved if you have bad credit.
