Handset Loan Ripoff

A year and a half ago, I signed up for and "deal" on a handset loan with "free" AirPods and Freestyle plan. I recently received an email from Virgin saying there may be better deals available. So I rang in. The deals are only on the airtime and not the handset but what I did realise is, how shocking the deal really was. It was sold as having a free pair of AirPods included but it looks like they have been baked into the price. Very sly on Virgins behalf. Even if the AirPods were included in the price, I am still paying £64 more than I would have, if I had just bought directly from Apple. Lesson learnt. Shame on you Virgin.

My S20+ 5G bought for cash, with a SIM only 5G deal from Vodafone has saved me over £400 on Virgin 'Free interest prices

No such thing as a free lunch. Enlli is right, if you have the money it's far better to pay up front.
