We know that things can get a little bit tight at this time of year, so here's 5 ways to save money, with Three.

It’s the end of January, Christmas is but a distant memory, and so’s your last pay day. There’s no denying it, things can get a little bit tight and more than a little bit grim at this time of year, and it can be super tough trying to find ways to save money.

So, we thought we’d do our part in trying to help ease that burden. Here’s a few Three-related money-saving tips and suggestions to try out.


Trade in your old device

Got an old phone sitting gathering dust at the bottom of a drawer somewhere? Maybe a Samsung Galaxy S7 that you’re planning to update with the next release? Well, those things could be worth more than you’d think. And best of all, you can arrange to trade them in online, so you can declutter the house and use it as a way to save money, all without having to leave your sofa.


Refer a friend

Know anyone who’s in the market for a new phone contract? Well, good news. If you refer a friend to Three, once they’re signed up both you and your friend will get a £25 Amazon gift card, on us. What’s more, you can refer more than one friend, so for every one that signs up you get another £25! As we all know, one of the best ways to save money


Check out the latest offers and freebies with wuntu

Fancy a free pizza? How about a free coffee? Or maybe some free chocolates? Or even some seriously discounted lunch options? Okay, we’ll throw in a free trip to the cinema, just for you. It’s a combination of ways to save money!

With wuntu, Three’s partner app, you can save money with freebies, discounts, competitions and more, every single Wednesday. And all you have to do is download the app. (Android/iTunes)


Check your allowance with the Three app

Have you been noticing those bills creeping up and up and up each month? It’s super-easy to keep an eye on your usage with the Three app, so you can see when you’re coming close to your limit. Plus, if you think you’re gonna use up all your data, you can even use it to buy a little Add-on to get you through to the end of the month, giving you more time to find new ways to save money.

What happens if you fail a credit check?

It’s not a nice feeling to fail a credit check, but it’s also not the end of the world. We still have a couple of options for customers who weren’t able to complete a credit check. For one, you can always sign up for a Pay As You Go account with us, which helps you to build up credit. That way, you can try again after a few months.

You might also be eligible for a SIM Only contract, which gives you most of the benefits of a monthly account, without the hassle of a long-term contract. SIM Only could another of your ways to save money.

If you think there’s a specific reason why you might be failing a credit check, you can always feel free to give us a call on 0800 358 8460. Or you can also check our dedicated support section.


Hopefully, these ways to save money are useful to you. There’s plenty of other ways to save money, but here at Three we prefer the ways that mean you don’t have to give anything up 🙂
