If a mobile phone is an item that you've been looking to cop a discount on, Carphone Warehouse is one of the many retailers launching Christmas and seasonal sales right now.
That includes discounts on iPhone deals, Samsung handsets, Huawei phones, Google devices, and even SIM only deals. And yes, while Carphone no longer has access to EE, O2, or Three, there are some strong discounts via the iD Mobile and Vodafone networks.
Below we've picked out the best of the best from the Carphone Warehouse sale.
Carphone Warehouse Boxing day iPhone deals:
iPhone 12: at Carphone Warehouse | iD Mobile | £99.99 upfront | 20GB data | unlimited minutes and texts | £36.99pm
Apple's iPhone 12 hasn't been on the market for that long, and yet, prices are already beginning to fall. With this deal, you're paying just £36.99 a month and £99.99 upfront while securing a pretty strong 20GB of data. However, it is well worth noting that despite the iPhone 12 being a 5G phone, iD Mobile is yet to be a 5G network and likely won't be until early 2021.
iPhone 12 mini: at Carphone Warehouse | iD Mobile | £99.99 upfront | 20GB data | unlimited minutes and texts | £32.99pm
You can go even cheaper than the above deal on the latest iPhone devices if you go for the mini. With this deal, you're paying just £32.99 a month and £99.99 upfront for that same 20GB of data. That's an excellent price for such a new iPhone but like the above deal, 5G is not yet available to the iD Mobile networks.
Samsung Galaxy A21s: at Carphone Warehouse | iD Mobile | free upfront | unlimited data, minutes and texts | £21.99pm + £50 cashback
This deal offers an impressive unlimited data, minutes and texts plan for just £21.99 a month. On top of that, there is £50 in cashback, effectively costing you just £19.90 a month - a price that is impressive for the SIM alone! While the A21 is by no means a spec-heavy phone, it is perfect for anyone on a budget who's not too worried what device they have.
Samsung Galaxy A51: at Carphone Warehouse | Vodafone | £49.99 upfront | 2GB data | unlimited minutes and texts | £22pm
The Samsung Galaxy A51 is a super budget phone and this deal brings your bills right down to just £22 a month and £49.99 upfront. However, to get your costs as low as this, you do have to sacrifice on data slightly. You're only getting 2GB here making it more suited to those who are always on Wi-Fi or who don't use much data each month.
Google Pixel 4a 5G: at Carphone Warehouse | Vodafone | £29.99 upfront | 12GB data | unlimited minutes and texts | £26pm
This works out as one of the cheapest and best Google Pixel 4a 5G deals we've seen yet by quite a way. It provides 12GB of data for just £26 a month and £29.99 upfront. That puts it below the average price of the 4a and is especially a great price for a 5G handset on 5G network!
Huawei P30 Lite: at Carphone Warehouse | iD Mobile | FREE upfront | Unlimited data, minutes and texts | £24.99pm + £75 cashback
Considering the super low costs on offer here, this completely unlimited data, texts and calls package is really impressive. You pay nothing upfront and just £24.99 a month for an iD Mobile contract. On top of that, there's £75 in cashback to be had, bringing your price down to an effective £21.86 a month. And because this is from the P30 range, you're still holding on to the Google apps and features.
Huawei P40 Lite: at Carphone Warehouse | iD Mobile | FREE upfront | Unlimited data, minutes and texts | £20.99pm +£50 cashback
The Huawei P40 Lite is the cheapest of Huawei's latest collection of handsets. Like the deal above, you're getting an unlimited data, calls and texts contract. And, despite the fact that this is the newer option, it costs even less at just £20.99 a month! For a little bit of context, an unlimited data SIM from iD costs £18 a month - meaning you're paying just £2.99 a month for the phone...and that's before you even consider the £50 cashback you're getting.
Huawei P40 Pro: at Carphone Warehouse | iD Mobile | £49.99 upfront | 20GB data | unlimited minutes and texts | £33.99pm
The most powerful of Huawei's handsets, this deal gets you the Huawei P40 Pro for just £33.99 a month and £49.99 upfront. That's a pretty spectacular price considering this matches the specs on offer from Samsung and Apple's top releases. However, it doesn't come with the Google Play Store or additional Google apps.
Huawei P30 Pro: at Carphone Warehouse | Vodafone| FREE upfront |
6GB 54GB data | unlimited minutes and texts | £34pm
This Huawei P30 Pro deal is the best of Carphone's Huawei deals for anyone who doesn't want to be on the iD Mobile network. With this deal, you're paying £34 a month and nothing upfront for 54GB of data on Vodafone. And, because this is one of Huawei's older handsets, all of the Google apps are still there.
Carphone Warehouse SIM only deals:
iD SIM | 12 month contract | 12GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £10 per month + half price for first 3 months
Right now, Carphone Warehouse is offering a half price for the first 3 months offer on its iD Mobile SIMs. While there are plenty of offers in this deal, our favourite is the 12GB for £10 a month offer. With the first 3 months at £5, you will be very hard-pressed to find a better cheap SIM than this right now. You can also get half price on unlimited data, 100GB, 50GB, and more.
Vodafone SIM | 12 month contract | 100GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £16 per month
Carphone also has an excellent price going for a Vodafone SIM right now. For just £16 a month, you can get 100GB of data - a massive amount for most people. While it isn't quite as affordable as the iD deals above, it provides 5G, Vodafone's VeryMe features and a host of other add ons.
Who is Carphone Warehouse?
Carphone Warehouse is easily one of the best-known retailers in the UK, and although it no longer has its high street stores, it has committed to its online services.
Looking past the cheap prices the brand is offering above, there are a number of factors that help Carphone stand out. It offers up to £400 when you trade in for new phones, free next day delivery and more. And if you're unsure how to change your new number of set up your new device, Carphone will help you out there too.
