Tesco may be one of the biggest supermarket brands in the UK but they’re probably not the first name you think of when it comes to mobile deals. However, they have made quite a name for themselves over the years, having been a Which? recommended mobile provider for eight years running. On top of that, the brand has also scooped up four different titles at the 2018 uSwitch Awards, including the Best Pay Monthly Network, Best Value Pay Monthly, High Street Retailer of the Year and the Best Network for Customer Service. In fact, Tesco Mobile has plenty of happy customers, as it has been named the least complained about UK mobile network by Ofcom.

With excellent customer service and a competitive range of plans, Tesco Mobile is certainly not a mobile provider to overlook. From flexible pay-as-you-go to great value monthly contracts, the company has a deal to suit everyone - and one area in which they excel is with their SIM only offering.

What are SIM only deals?

Often with mobile contracts, the cost will include the price of a new handset in addition to the monthly texts, minutes and data allowance. However, some people will already have a smartphone they are happy with and don’t want to have to change it or upgrade it. This is where SIM only contracts come in.

With a SIM only deal, you can keep your existing phone and only pay for the amount of texts, minutes and mobile data you need. These plans tend to be significantly cheaper than handset inclusive contracts, as well as being far more flexible. While most monthly contracts last for a 24-month period, a SIM only deal can be as short as just one month, allowing customers the freedom to shop around more frequently to ensure they get the very best deals.

Why choose Tesco Mobile?

Tesco Mobile customers get a number of fantastic benefits, including 4G at no extra cost, delivering a smoother user experience when using apps or downloading content. Customers also have complete control; with capped contracts that ensure you never pay more than you expect each month.

Android SIM only users can earn £2 off their monthly bills when they sign up to Tesco Mobile Xtras and view ads, content or offers on their phone. Plus, when you have more than one Tesco Mobile contract on your account you can choose from getting extra data, additional minutes, or bonus Clubcard points to spend in store. And with Tesco Mobile Protect, you can enjoy complete peace of mind that your phone is covered by worldwide insurance should it be lost, stolen or damaged.

Tesco SIM only deals

Tesco Mobile offers a choice between pay monthly and pay as you go SIM only deals. With pay monthly, the price varies depending on the allowances, and customers can choose between one-month or 12 month contracts. The most affordable deal includes 100 minutes, 5,000 texts and 100MB a month on a 12 month contract for just £6 a month. This is ideal for people who use their phones casually and simply want the most affordable plan. If higher allowances are a priority, then you can get up to 25GB of data, 5,000 minutes and 5,000 texts on a 12-month contract, which costs just £20 a month.

When it comes to pay monthly deals, the more you top up, the more you get in term of allowances. If you top up £10, you’ll get 3GB of data, 500 minutes and 5,000 texts. For £5 more, you’ll receive the same number of texts, 6GB of data and 1,000 minutes or, for £20 a month, you can enjoy 8GB, 2,000 minutes and the same text allowance. Plus, if you are on the Triple Credit tariff, Tesco Mobile will triple your allowances when you top up.
