*£181 average saving based on customers that purchased a new contract between 1st Jan 17- 31st May 17. For 56% of customers we were able to directly compare the total cost of ownership of the deal purchased from Carphone Warehouse vs. the network's (Vodafone or O2 or EE) published website price. Total cost of ownership is calculated by: monthly cost x 24 + upfront cost - any cashback.  Matched tariffs are where minutes, texts and data are the same. Total matchable transactions in this period were 410,286. The total match rate between 1st Jan 2017 and 31st May 2017 was 56% (includes iD where there is no match). This breaks down to 73% for O2, 85% for Vodafone and 41% for EE.  Excludes any deals with gifts or other promotions. Excludes any tariffs that we do not range or sell.

**At Carphone Warehouse, we check our prices daily to ensure we match or beat the trade in price you get from EE, Three, O2, Vodafone & Mazuma. In the unlikely event you find a cheaper price at one of these competitors, we promise to match it. The competitor’s price must be based on the equivalent condition of the phone, with the model identical to ours, and offered on the same terms. We will not match any additional or enhanced promotional offer beyond the normal trade in value available. We must be able to verify the competitor’s price and handset condition. We’ll match the price of an item, once we have inspected the condition of the handset. Offer only valid at the time of trading in your handset. Cannot be used with any other offer.
