Pay As You Go
Most of us end up tied to a 24-month contract we’re not that keen on. If you’re nearing the end of your contract, perhaps it’s time to consider a pay as you go deal.
Pay as you go tends to favour the more minimal mobile user. If you’re pretty light on calling, texting and browsing the web, then a pay as you go deal might be right for you.
What is pay as you go?
A pay as you go is exactly that. You simply ‘top up’ your phone when you need it. There are no monthly bills, and no long winded contracts.
Some people prefer this extra control. It allows you to keep tabs on exactly where your money goes.
The advantage of pay as you go is this flexibility and control. On the other hand, some people like the convenience of not worrying about topping up. It’s also worth noting that not all pay as you go deals are as good as their contracted counterparts.
You’re paying a premium on the most part for added flexibility. It’s worth having a look though, as you might be able to find a deal better suited to your personal usage habits.
