Friendly economy, Kwon Ae-ri reporter. Reporter Kwon, how long have you come up with a way to save money?


Yes. Starting yesterday (20th), the latest models of famous domestic mobile phone brands began to be opened. "Would you like to change your phone?" I think it's time for some to think.

Today I would like to tell you how to save money on my mobile phone bills in the current law.

Telecom rates actually exceed the cost of scrap. If you take a good look at the end of the day, you can save a lot of money if you think about the whole family's expenses by a few thousand won a month.

First tip. I hope you remember when you bought your cell phone and when you got a discount.

If you don't remember, I'll also tell you a simple way to do this. Why is this important? Usually we get a lot of handset discounts with fixed subsidies. Instead, they promise not to change to another carrier or machine for a fixed period of time, usually 24 months. It's an agreement.

But 18 of those 24 months have passed. The contract lasts less than six months. Then you can get another 25% discount on your telecommunications for the next half year. It's a duplicate discount.

If I have a 60,000 won plan now, I can change it to less than 15,000 won a month. It's 90,000 won in six months.

This isn't automatic, it's a discount tip I've got to find. Call 114 and ask me what I'm in, and if it's been 18 months since you started to use your mobile device for a discount, I suggest that you apply for a discounted price right away. We recommend a 12 month discount plan.


I've heard about this for the first time while I've been using my cell phone for so long. Why is there a discount during that period?


This has some constraints. I plan to change my carrier, for example, I'm using SKT now, but I want to go to KT when the agreement is over.

But if you're just going to keep it, it's the best way to save money.

Because every time I change my phone, "What discount do you want?" Let's decide. You can get a discount on the terminal price, or you can get a 25% discount on the price. It's just one of them.

What I'm talking about is a tip for those who get a discount on their device and can't get a discount. Actually, if you want to get a discount, you'll have to pay a penalty.

However, you can postpone the penalty from the time when the remaining contract period is less than 6 months left after using the terminal discount.

So at that point, you can apply for a 25% discount on the monthly rate for the next 12 months, and you'll get a discount.

Then it will be two and a half years since I bought my cell phone. If you spend about two and a half years, it's usually better to change the machine.

Parents can also go with their children and change them, and if they change the terminal in their carrier, they can get a new discount without paying the penalty that was delayed a year ago.

Whether you're getting a new machine discount or a 25% discount on a new plan, then go ahead and choose new ones. This is the best way to save money.

But I can't use one machine until two and a half years, I want to have a new one, and those people can change it without paying a penalty in the same telecommunications company. .


It's a bit complicated, but I understand what you're talking about.


I hope you remember the ticket I showed you earlier.


Can you explain which of the default values ​​and the communication fee would be better off?


This really varies from case to case, depending on my condition. It's usually a good idea to get a discount if you buy an expensive machine, or get a discount if you use an expensive plan.

If you type 'Smart Choice' in the portal search box, the telecommunications information portal will appear immediately. The site is updated daily by the Korea Telecom Business Association.

There's a lot of useful information out there, but there are really few people out of 60 million subscribers.

If you go to the 'Smart Life' tab here, you can see all the conditions you want to use, the carrier you are using, all the conditions of the plan.

I can compare at a glance how much money I will pay each month when I get a terminal discount and how much money I will pay every month when I get a discount plan. Look at this and choose.

Today, I'm only assuming you're free to use family discounts, couples discounts, except this one, I'll tell you about other discount tips in the future.
