Tasty £169 cashback deal for iPhone 4

OK, so listen up all you deal hunters: for one week only you can receive £169 cashback on the new iPhone 4 if you order it through Recombu.com.

Sounds too good to be true, and unlike other cashback systems that are so complicated that you often end up out of pocket and scratching your head, this deal pays the full whack in one go.

Recombu's Tom Hopkins said: 'The cashback is being provided by Recombu and will be paid via PayPal after we have had confirmation from 3 that the customer has signed up for this deal.

'Once the customer has given us their details and purchased the deal on the 3 mobile site, the cashback will be paid as soon as we have verified a successful transaction.'

The plan offers 2,000 free minutes, 5,000 texts and unlimited data. You get an iPhone 4 16GB handset at £19 and a contract in which you pay £40 for two years. Or, you can pay £69 for the phone and £35 a month. If you want the 32GB phone then the handset will cost you £109.

What's not to like? Well, probably a few things. 3 recently came last in a Which? magazine survey of customer satisfaction, and while uSwitch website's mobile phone expert Ernest Doku claims their 3G coverage is decent and UK 2G coverage improved, it's still not up their with the best of them. Remember too that the iPhone 5 is just around the corner, which is probably why this attractive deal exists in the first place. If you want the latest model, then don't get sucked in!
