Skinny Mobile - 10 % Cheaper Than The Rest

Skinny Mobile - 10 % Cheaper Than The Rest

The numbers have been done and the accountants have announced the findings - Skinny Mobile is at least 10% cheaper for prepaid NZ standard rate calls and texts than 2degrees or Vodafone*.

That’s some good news for value-savvy people. Who doesn’t want to save money? 10% adds up - so you’ll have more cash to spend on more important stuff.

Skinny CEO Paul Taylor comments: “Skinny is all about giving great value. We Kiwis are an astute bunch and we want to see the best value for money, so over the past year we’ve been working hard to keep costs to a minimum and aim to stay the cheapest telco on offer in New Zealand.”

Whatever you use your mobile phone for – flirting or breaking up with your lover, calling to apologise the next day, calling your Mum or posting selfies…you’ll be pleasantly surprised how much you can save on your mobile with Skinny.

The $4 a week Skinny Combo: The best way to live on the skinny is to get a $4 a week Skinny Combo. For less than the cost of a coffee, you get 60 minutes calling to any NZ network, 60MBs of data and 100 texts each week. That’s $54.80 of value (based on Skinny’s already 10% cheaper rates) for just $4 (other combos are available too)!

Cheap 3G phones: The icing on the cake is that your phone might already be compatible for a Skinny SIM. If not, you can pick one up from just $29**.

The team at Skinny sure know what’s important…simple plans, ridiculously good value and focusing on being a good, all round, genuine Kiwi-company. They’re so committed to saving costs that Skinny even uses it’s own staff in it’s advertising.

And there’s even more ways to save cash with Skinny, Taylor adds “We have also just introduced Hook Ups, where Skinny customers can reap from money-saving rewards, including: Free Fries and Aioli at Burgerfuel***, 10% off at any Amazon store, priority ticketing so you can be the first in on big gigs, with more to come. It’s simple, we know what our customers want, and we want to thank them for their loyalty.”

Skinny phones and SIMs are available from Countdown, The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Dick Smith and Powerstore.
