Smarty Mobile's superb BOGOF deal is doing exactly that this Wednesday. One of our favourite ways to get cheap SIM only deals is set to come to an end, so be sure to get it while you still can.
On top of Smarty Mobile's standard offer to give bill credit back for unused data (more on which at the bottom of this page), and dishing out commitment-free unlimited data SIMs for a very reasonable £25 per month, its current promotion gives you something for absolutely nothing.
Sign up for one month of a Smarty SIMO, and it will give you the second month absolutely free. It's a brilliant offer, and one that's especially eye-catching if you're somebody that's looking for a stopgap SIM for just a couple of months.
The offer, which is available until midnight on Wednesday, April 3, comes with all five of Smarty's SIM only plans. So that includes its so-called 'X Small' plan that ordinarily gets you 1GB of data for £6.25 per month. If you decide only to hang around for 60 days, that's the equivalent of £3.12 a month! And the value gets even better as the data increases – so you could go for its £25 unlimited data SIM, now costing an average of only £12.50 for each of the first two months.
Smarty's SIM only deals in full:
- 1GB data, unlimited calls and texts – £6.25 per month
- 2GB data, unlimited calls and texts – £7.50 per month
- 4GB data, unlimited calls and texts – £10 per month
- 8GB data, unlimited calls and texts – £15 per month
- Unlimited data, calls and texts – £25 per month

Credit back for unused data on your SIMO plan
On the merits of the above promotion alone, Smarty is looking like a clever SIMO option at the moment for new and old SIM-free phones alike. But its other USP is really worth reminding you about, too.
It will give you money off for any data allowance that you don't use in a month. So if you have a month where you hardly use your phone away from the Wi-Fi at all, you may be eligible for money off your next phone bill.
The tariffs include a base price of £5 per month which is non-refundable. So whichever plan you go for (other than the basic 1GB or unlimited data options, of course) if you use no data you'll only pay £5 per month and you'll still get unlimited calls and texts to play with.
Worried about reception? Again there's nothing to be afraid of – Smarty piggybacks on the Three network which covers 97% of the UK.
