    Three SIM only renewal

    Three SIM only renewal 10th Aug 18 at 7:43 PM
    Hi guys,

    Currently paying 14 for unlimited mins and texts, 12GB of data on the Advanced package. I'm up for renewal at the end of the month. They've offered me 8GB Advanced for 11 but I'd like to get that even cheaper? 8GB is fine, I usually use between 5-7GB in a month.

    Is their offer good? The last couple of times (annual contract anniversary) I've tried negotiating with them , they haven't wanted to budge. Has anyone got any recent experiences they want to share?

    Thanks.

    You aren't up for renewal, you don't need to do anything... your 12 month contract will become a 30 day rolling contract.

    You need to compare the cost with 30 day contracts.

    Don't forget that SIM only on Three tends not to suffer from annual price increases too.

    Sounds pretty reasonable to me. Cheaper than you're currently paying. Not sure you'd find much better on the market.

    Just a thought but stay on a 30 day sim and see what black friday brings.

    ID mobile (which runs on 3) are offering 8Gb with data roll over and capping on a one month rolling contract for 10 on Uswitch (with 500 minutes and unlimited data).

    Even if you prefer to be with 3 directly you could try quoting this deal to them and see if they will match it.
