Phones 4u cuts prepay prices as Christmas countdown begins
Phones 4u is looking to seize the Christmas prepay market after cutting prices on many of its pay-as-you-go handsets.
The retailer has gone toe-to-toe with low-cost non-specialist rivals, such as Asda, Tesco and Argos, with some prices slashed by up to £70. The cuts also bring many of Phones 4u’s prepay prices in line with Carphone, which also reduced pay-as-you-go prices recently.
Phones 4u’s biggest price drop is on the LG Viewty, which has come down from £199.99 to £129.99. Meanwhile the Samsung U800 price has dropped by £99.95 to £79.95 and the Nokia 6300 price has dropped from £79.95 to £59.95. Many other handsets have also been reduced.
A Phones 4u saleswoman said: ‘In order to make sure that our customers are saving as much as possible this Christmas, we're also already offering discounts on a number of deals in stores to help our customers' pockets, including free gifts such as for the family when you take out selected mobile contracts and up to £70 off prepay handsets.’
