Mobiles.co.uk question for O2 contract

I am in the process of buying a new phone (M8) and have found what appears to be a good deal on mobiles.co.uk

They are offering vaqrious contracts on their website with o2.

Looking at unlimited texts, unlimited minutes and 5Gb of data per month. However they are offering contracts at £33, £38, £43 aand £48. Phone is free with all of them so they are exactly the same thing (unfort I cant post link here).

Not sure if their syatem is not working or this is some kind of scam. This contract on the 02 site is £38 per month.

I am worried that I sign up to the £33 tariff and then they try top charge me £38 (or more) and I then have to waste time sorting it out.

Anyone tried buying this contract?

    I think the OP's confusion is that the site lists 4 different deals for the same phone with the same tarrif at different costs, ie:

    So, I think the op's query is not just about the cheapest deal being cheaper than O2 direct, but the obvious error/fault in having the same tarrif + phone listed at 4 different prices.

    Thanks for both spotting this.

    I agree four identical tariffs at different prices can be confusing for a visitor. The £38, £43 and £48 tariffs are going to be removed shortly. The £33 will be the only one with 5GB on the M8.

    Hope this helps
