Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog

Putting together a telephone subscription does not seem to be too difficult these days. After all, the range is incredibly large. There are numerous providers to choose from. However, putting together the cheapest subscription is a completely different story. On average, Dutch people spend between twenty and fifty euros per month on their subscription. These costs therefore increase considerably on an annual basis.

Fortunately, saving is really possible. But then the right choices have to be made. Whether you choose SIM-only unlimited calling or an extensive subscription with device. Savings can be made at any time. It is therefore important that you know what to look for to not only find the cheapest subscription, but also the subscription that suits you best. In this article we provide some useful tips.

Check both in store and online

Are you someone who always arranges everything online? And you don't actually think about the fact that you can also easily take out a telephone subscription in the store? Then it is good to pay attention to this. It is very striking that the rates can differ per provider and even per store. As soon as you start comparing, it is therefore a good idea to do this not only online, but also in the store. That may be a lot of work, but it is the most effective way to save money.

Know what your current consumption is

Many people immediately opt for a very extensive subscription because they think that it will certainly meet their needs. A shame actually, because this usually means you pay more than necessary. You really don't have to pay for a larger bundle if you don't use it up anyway. It is important that you choose a telephone subscription that suits you and that you know what your current usage is. You can easily view this if you already have a subscription. Request the specifications of each invoice and you will see exactly how much of your bundle you use. Based on this, you can put together a telephone subscription that perfectly matches this consumption.

SIM only subscription

It is also important to choose the right type of subscription. Some people opt for a subscription with device as standard. So easy, right? This way you have a completely new device every two years and you simply pay for it monthly. Perhaps easy, but it does entail additional costs. Not to mention the fact that for a telephone subscription with a value above 250 euros, this is registered with the BKR. This can have consequences if, for example, you want to take out a mortgage. That is why the demand for so-called SIM-only subscriptions is increasing. You provide the telephone yourself and only pay monthly for your bundle. If your current phone is still in excellent condition, this is a smart and fast way to save money every month.
