Virgin Mobile offers 50% discount for annual plans

Save money on your data plans with Virgin Mobile's new deals

Virgin Mobile recently unveiled a new set of yearly plans that will bring more choice and flexibility to its user, at a discounted price. The announcement came right on the heels of Etisalat’s reveal of new annual add-ons.

New deals for a better price

Users can now opt for either six- or 12-month mobile plans with one-time payments. A first in the region, this can offer up to 50 per cent in mobile bill savings. For example, the previous plan of 10GB data and 500 local minutes cost Dh299 a month will now cost just Dh149.50 per month on Virgin’s yearly plan and around Dh209 a month on the six-month plan.

However, there is a catch. Once you register, you will be locked into the plan for six or twelve months. This is a huge step aside from what Virgin is known for, as the ability to switch plans on the go was Virgin Mobile’s biggest selling point.

If you are interested, you will need to hurry. Virgin Mobile’s six month and twelve month plans are available for a limited time only and are available across all of Virgin’s 125 customisable plans. You can subscribe to these plans exclusively through the Virgin Mobile app available on both iOS and Android platforms.
