How does uSwitch make money?
When you buy a phone or sign up for a SIM only deal from uSwitch, we receive a fee from the relevant network or retailer. This allows us to provide you with a market-leading, free-to-use comparison service.
The commercial arrangements we have with providers also enable us to make the switching process smoother and negotiate exclusive deals that you’ll only find at uSwitch.
Sponsored content and adverts
At uSwitch, we work with our providers to highlight select deals and offers. We receive a fee for this, which helps us keep our site free for users.
This can include sponsored content or promoted deals and adverts. Anything that has been paid for by a provider or manufacturer is clearly labelled on our website.
How do you determine the order of deals in your comparison tables?
We aim to take the strain out of mobile comparison. Our service includes thousands of deals - so we have developed a formula to highlight the ones we think are good value and balance any upfront and monthly costs. To make it clear which these are, we label them ‘promoted’.
Our promoted deals may not always be the cheapest option, but you can be sure you’re getting a fair price and competitive monthly allowance from a reputable provider. We’re confident that highlighting these is the most effective, time-saving way of helping our customers find a deal that works for them.
If you prefer to filter deals by monthly cost, though, you can. And you can apply filters for call minutes, upfront cost and contact length too.
Why are some networks not represented in uSwitch’s comparison tables?
We cover the vast majority of the mobiles market, including major networks and retailers. But with hundreds of thousands of mobile tariffs available online, it’s not possible to show every single combination to our customers.
We want to make sure that providers on our site have a track record of delivering a decent service to customers. For this reason, you may find some 'virtual networks' are not listed on our tables.
What's a 'uSwitch exclusive' deal and how does it differ?
When you're looking through our mobile comparison tables you may see a deal marked as 'uSwitch exclusive'. This means that it features a substantial discount or is bundled with a free voucher, and that the retailer has listed this particular deal exclusively on uSwitch. You won’t find it anywhere else.
To secure exclusive, money-saving offers for our customers, we negotiate extensively with our full range of partners. Not only does this generate competition between retailers, but it ensures that our customers are offered some of the UK's leading mobile phone deals and tariffs.
What is a uSwitch ‘promoted‘ deal?
If a deal is ‘promoted’ on uSwitch’s tables, then it has been lent additional visibility as a result of us securing exclusivity on a great deal, or a commercial agreement to showcase what we believe to be market-leading value to consumers.
Our promoted deals may not always be the cheapest option, but you can be sure you’re getting a fair price and competitive monthly allowance from a reputable provider.
