We're into Black Friday week and there's a huge number of mobile phone contract deals floating around, many of which offer free game consoles as part of the package. If you're in the market for a brand new handset, not only is this a good way to upgrade, it's a good way of bagging one of the latest consoles along with it.
It's easy to get lost in the deals, though. To help you out, we've put together a list of all the best phone contracts with free console gifts across the web so you can pick out the best one for you with minimal fuss. It's worth noting that unless you fancy paying an awful lot of money each month, you're not going to get the most recent high-end handsets. With that caveat, on to the deals!
Best phone contracts with free Nintendo Switch
There's currently a great offer on the Huawei P30 Lite which nets you 90GB of Data, Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Texts, £396 Cashback, and a Nintendo Switch Console (Neon), all for a £22.50 per month for 24 months contract (after cashback). You'll purchase the phone through Mobile Phones Direct, but you'll be contracted to O2.
The cashback provided by Mobile Phones Direct (spread over the entire 24-month contract) will reduce the monthly contract from O2's original £39.00 per month, down to a much more affordable £22.50. So if you decide to nab this offer, make sure you take it!
Huawei phones always features brilliant cameras, and the P30 Lite isn't slacking in this regard. It features a triple-lens camera on the back, and a 32MP front facing camera to take some superb selfies. You'll work with an ample 6.15" display and have 128GB of internal storage for all your music, photos and more.
If your budget's a bit higher, then Virgin Media's contract might be just what you're after if the Switch is a must. It's offering a Huawei P30 with 5000 Minutes, Unlimited Texts, 100GB of Data, and Nintendo Switch (Grey), all for £31 per month for 36 months. Sure, it's a little longer to commit, but this is one of the best contracts out there for the beefier P30 and a Switch. When you're on the landing page, make sure you scroll down and select the £31 Black Friday offer.
The P30 offers an all-round upgrade over the P30 Lite, with a 40MP triple-lens camera on the back, better battery life, a more powerful processor, and 2GB more RAM for multitasking.
Best phone contracts with free PS4 or PS4 Pro gift
Mobile Phones Direct has a great deal that'll get you the Honor 8S with Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Texts, 60GB of Data, £396.00 Cashback, and a Playstation 4 Pro 1TB Console, all for £20.50 per month for 24 months. You'll purchase the contract through Mobile Phones Direct, but you'll be contracted to O2.
If you decide to purchase this deal, make sure you claim the £396 cashback offered by Mobile Phones Direct as it'll lower the original O2 contract from £37.00 per month to £20.50 per month. Cashback needs to be claimed at set points over the course of the contract in order to reclaim the full amount of £396.
Honor is Huawei's sister brand, so it still offers quality phones at a great price. The 8S features a strong camera, a 5.71" display, plenty of horsepower for all your tasks, and 32GB of data to store all your media.
Carphone Warehouse also has an offer on the Sony Xperia 10 which comes with Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Texts, 1GB of Data, and a Playstation 4 500GB with Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019), all for £27.99 per month for 24 months. You'll purchase the phone through their website, but you'll be contracted to iD mobile.
The Sony Xperia 10 might be midrange, but it still packs a punch. You've got a lovely 6-inch display, 64GB of internal memory, a solid dual rear camera and the ability to record in 4K.
Best phone contracts with free Xbox One X gift
Over on Mobile Phones Direct there's a deal on the Honor 8S which includes Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Texts, 120GB of Data, £396.00 Cashback, and an Xbox One X Console, all for £26.50 per month for 24 months. You'll purchase the phone through their website, but you'll be contracted to O2.
The £396.00 cashback from Mobile Phones Direct reduces the monthly line rental from £43.00 to a much nicer £26.50. If you're thinking of purchasing this offer, ensure you keep up with the cashback claims to reduce the overall cost of the contract.
Like we've mentioned above, Honor is the sister brand of Huawei, so don't expect any skimping on quality here. The 8S is a powerful midrange handset with a solid camera, 5.71" display, 32GB of memory, and a solid processor for all your mobile needs.
Mobile Phones Direct has delivered another deal in the form of the Samsung Galaxy A10. It comes with Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Texts, 10GB of Data, £396.00 Cashback, and an Xbox One X Console, all for £28.50 per month for 24 months. You'll purchase the contract via their website, but you'll be contracted to O2.
