Cell C’s new Pinnacle contracts are amazing value for money

Cellular bill optimisation firm Tariffic has said that Cell C’s new Pinnacle contracts offer excellent value for money.

Cell C announced its new suite of Pinnacle post-paid and top-up contracts earlier today, offering up to R10,000 cash back if you sign up for one of its higher-end deals.

“You really are saving, and substantially so!” Tariffic said.

“Not only are the value of these cash-backs even more favourable than the subsidy that most service providers offer, but it is also really refreshing to see a mobile operator giving you the choice of how you want to spend this money.”

Tariffic said that you will probably be able to use your cash-back to subsidise an expensive new phone, but added that you can also use it to subsidise an even cheaper phone, or keep your current phone and just take the money.

“It’s really encouraging to see a mobile operator giving this kind of freedom to the customer,” Tariffic said.

However, Cell C hasn’t released much information on how its cash-backs will work.

“Will you have to spend your cash-back at a Cell C store? Does it expire?” Tariffic asked. “We’ll have to wait to see how the fine-print for this deal looks.”

The tables below summarise the pricing and features of Cell C’s new Pinnacle deals.
