    The real danger is doing the sums, going with the deal as it is currently good value, then they pull the offer. You're left paying 4x as much.

    Another one is bundles: 'pay 10 get 300 texts this month'. That sounds like they're 3.3p each (a good rate), but they only are if you use them all. If you only use 100 then it's 10p each (a poor rate).

    I'll just avoid on principle anything that has silly confusion marketing.
