Incredible Vodafone SIM only prices

Vodafone | 12-month contract | 8GB-25GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | From £8pm
Yes, you are reading that correctly. If you're coming to the end of your contract but are perfectly happy with your handset, then these Vodafone SIM only deals are quite astonishing. Choose between 8GB a month for £8, 20GB for £10 or a massive 25GB for £13. But there is a catch - you'll have to put a bit of effort in to get it at this price. In reality, you'll pay about a tenner more per 30 days and then claim cashback every couple of months. It might be a pain in the neck, but well worth it for the prices.
