Every day we get potential customers visiting our website, excited by our SIM Only plans and enthusiastic about signing up when their current contract is up for renewal. Sometimes those excited visitors return to tell us they love what we're doing, but their current provider has matched our price. That makes us sad, because we know that those people are going to be paying more than they need to as they've not taken a number of things into account and have committed to another term of overspending.
If your current provider has "matched" our pricing and you're on the fence about joining SMARTY (although our TrustPilot Reviews might convince you it's the right thing to do) here's a few things to check:
Every month we turn the data you don't use into a discount off your next plan, except for the Unlimited plan where discounts aren't applicable. For example, if you're on the small plan and only use 1GB of your 2GB you'll get £1.25 off your next month. So a £7.50 "price match" now sees you paying more. Our discount is calculated on MBs so even if you have a tiny amount left you'll still get a discount.
SMARTY charges £1.25/GB for additional data - that's the same price as in your plan. If you run out of data allowance how much will your current provider charge you for more? Many providers mark-up additional data - some are as much as £10 for 1GB!
SMARTY add-ons only expire when you've used all of the data you bought too. If you run out during the month you can buy an add-on and use that data until your next plan starts. Whatever you have left will be there waiting for the next time you run out. With many providers if you don't use all of the data in the month it was bought it expires and you lose it.
