If you're in the UK and jumped onboard with 4G early on, then there's a good chance that you might be an EE customer. If that's the case, then you'll be happy to know that EE is getting into the Christmas spirit with their 'Christmas Shop' as well as free gifts each week for their customers. EE is calling this a "Game Changing Christmas". but at the very least it's nice to see them offer some deals and something a little extra for their customers.
Starting with the free gift side of things, there's a free gift that can be unwrapped each week, I just unwrapped a free Kindle Book, for example. These aren't the most exciting gifts in the world, but a free book is a free book, and that's hard to argue with. The Christmas Shop however, seems a decent destination for EE customers to snag some last minute gifts. There's a range of EE hardware on offer with 10% off, including the Harrier tablet starting from £49.99 upfront with 10GB a month for £18 a month and the kid-friendly Robin tablet for the same amount of data per month but starting at £29.99 upfront. The common theme here seems to be that existing customers are those that will get the 10% off each month of their bill should they sign up to a contract this month. It is nice to see the UK's largest network offering their customers a little something back.
The deals and such in EE's Christmas Shop might not be Black Friday style deals, but at least they're getting into the Christmas spirit with a little more oomph than we can say for other UK networks. For the free weekly gift, you will need an EE number - although a T-Mobile or Orange number will work fine as well - and while it looks like all the Christmas Shop items are available to everyone, existing EE customers will get a little bit extra off the asking price. A network that sells more of their own hardware than most, EE has some affordable tablets and smartphones on offer this Christmas so it could be worth a look.
