Advantages: its good
, when you sign up, send you free statements every month. They list all the calls you make in the previous month and compare them against the other tariffs from ‘these four’ (BTCellnet, One to One and Vodafone,Orange). On the statement,the call charges and line rental in one ARREARS price) are listed – Sainsbury’s One charges the customers the LOWEST of those price
for eg you may make calls mainly on weekends. S1 would probably select a tariff that incorporates free weekend calls, giving you the best possible price on your eventual monthly bill .
If the following month you got rid of your phone, and made LOADS of calls, S1 may determine that a 500-minute-free tariff would get you the best value
There are advantages and disadvantages with this.
you DO get the best value for money – while the prices are not BETTER than anything else on the market, you WILL get the BEST price on the current market.
Another thing is that S1 matches you up against the 25 ‘published’ tariffs – this does not include any promotional offers. However you would get good monthly prices, and not have to worry about making a concerted effort to use the minutes that you’ve already paid for.
The fact that all the S1 payments are made in ARREARS is good cos they DON’T take Advanced Line Rental.
these r a few point to remember:
a) You will actually get to see if you’re making a saving (and S1 reckon you could save at least 10%)
b) ‘Normal’ use will ensure that you don’t overuse the phone and (fairly) pay the price for ALL the extra calls you’ve made – this is a service to get the best price for what you use – if you use more than you can afford then that’s your own fault!
C)If you only use your mobile for emergencies and spend less than 10 pounds per month, then pay-as-you-go may b
e more suitable. If you have the dosh, then annual / 18-monthly tariffs/prepayments may be cheaper in the long run, though you are STILL liable to lose minutes that you pay for.
There’s every incentive to join. Up to 14 days after signing up, there’s a period where you can cancel without question and go back to you old network
let’s put things in perspective. I REALLY HATE SAINSBURY’s!! Their products are GROSSLY OVERPRICED whereas in other superstores the exact same items are 20% cheaper; their their Stores have a disgusting yellow tone that reminds me of urine stained toilets!!!
S1 is an innovative new idea that could change the way you use and pay for mobile phone calls. – the big four are all keeping an eye on S1’s progress.
I have a mate whose work involves Sainsbury’s One. It seems as though Sainsbury’s have pulled out from the mobile phone market to a great extent.
