London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 16, 2009 -- The Carphone Warehouse, the largest independent mobile phone retailer in the UK, has announced the details of two new services, both easy and cost effective ways to help customers combat the ever spiralling effects of the credit crunch.
TalkTalk Essentials offers free broadband and landline calls until 2010. When customers sign up to a contract between 16th January and 2nd March 2009, calls and broadband will be included in the monthly line rental, including calls to 36 international countries - a saving of Â£77.88 over the first 12 months. The deal offers up to 8Mbps broadband, a 40GB download limit and a free wireless router, contributing to the deal being Â£190 cheaper than BT. Customers who join the broadband package from The Carphone Warehouse can also choose between a laptop, a Nintendo Wii or a Playstation 3 at no extra cost.
The Carphone Warehouse revealed that UK residents are wasting Â£29.7 billion on their mobile phone bills by not being on suitable tariffs, with over two thirds of money wasted by Pay As You Go customers. MyMobileTariffChecker from the Carphone Warehouse helps customers save money and ensure theat they are on the right tariff.
Customers simply visit The Carphone Warehouse, where an assistant will input their mobile phones usage details to calculate the most cost effective, personalised mobile phone package for the individual. MyMobileTariffChecker will take the guesswork out of choosing the most suitable deal and, to date, the service has successfully saved 12,743 customers a total of Â£88,994 since October 2008, with the average user saving up to Â£130 over the course of their contract.
Andrew Harrison, UK CEO at The Carphone Warehouse, said: "We know our customers are looking for money saving options now more than ever. With the current economical climate, we are offering our customers cost effective solutions to be able to stay in touch easily and cheaply, both online and over the phone. The benefits for both services really do speak for themselves, and there is great scope for saving money in 2009 with the Carphone Warehouse."
