Mobile by Sainsbury's announces its tariffs

The Mobile by Sainsbury’s service, which was set up earlier this month as a joint venture with Vodafone UK, has announced its pricing.


As well as offering a basic ‘pay as you go’ mobile phone service with standard calls at 8p per minute and text messages costing 4p each, there are also three 30-day allowances. Pricing starts with a £10 bundle including 200 minutes of calls, ‘unlimited’ texts and 250MB of data - rising to a £20 bundle with 800 minutes of calls and 1GB of data.

Customers will also receive double Nectar loyalty card points when they top-up their mobile phone and also when they buy other Sainsbury’s shopping. The company reckons a family of four could collect Nectar points worth up to £180 in a year.

Emma McLaughlin, Mobile by Sainsbury’s Marketing Director, said “The average UK family is feeling the pinch, and this is an easy way to make your pound stretch further. Sainsbury’s has demonstrated that a family of four can eat five meals for just £20, so the £180 worth of Nectar points would feed a family across 45 meals a year. Or you could use the points to treat yourself and your partner to a relaxing spa day.”

All Sainsbury’s stores will sell SIM cards for the service, with more than 250 stores also stocking a range of feature phones and smartphones.
