Generally, when one thinks of the retail phenomenon that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become known for in the last few years, the first images that come to mind are hoards of crowds running to the shops to snap up flash deals on luxury items destined for Christmas gifts the following month.
But did you know that energy suppliers as well broadband, phone and TV providers are also getting in on the action this year? By making the switch today (or over the weekend and through to Cyber Monday) you could end up making yourself some savings that will last for a year or more!
For Cyber Monday, eir is offering a free tablet to new customers who sign up to selected dual and tripleplay bundles.
As well as bagging a free tablet, by snapping up one of these deals today, customers could also make savings of up to €846 as eir is currently running a 12 month introductory discount across many of its bundles. Read this for the specifics of the particular Cyber Monday deals on offer.
Sports fanatics in the market for a new tripleplay bundle will be ecstatic to hear that Virgin Media is offering Sky Sports for just €1 per month for the first 6 months on certain tripleplay bundle contracts! On top of that, the provider is also offering 6 month introductory price discounts on the bundles included in the deal, adding considerably to overall savings.
Sky Sports usually adds an extra €40 to your bundle price for the month, meaning that you’ll make a saving of €234 on Sky Sports alone. When you add in discounts, customers can save up to €384 in the first 6 months, depending on the bundle chosen.
This is especially great news for Premier League fans as we head into the busy Christmas season. Bring on the footie!
For Cyber Monday, Sky is offering a FREE 32 inch LG TV to new customers who sign up to any of its tripleplay or TV-only bundles.
The provider is also offering 12 month introductory discounts across all of its tripleplay bundles, and 6 month introductory discounts across nearly all of its TV-only bundles.
There are certainly some great savings to be made, and with a free TV thrown into the mix, a deal from Sky is tempting. Be sure to compare all of its offers before making any decisions.
There’s also some good news for existing Virgin Media customers today. Customers can sign up with the company’s mobile network Virgin Mobile and get unlimited calls, texts and data for just €5 per month for 5 months. It works out at a saving of €100. Nice.
