Salt unlimited offer CHF 49/month - today only

In case someone is interested, Salt is offering via my-store.ch today only a contract (12 months) for CHF 49/month rather than their regular price of CHF 89/month. Link below.

Details:

Unlimited calls, SMS, MMS in CH and to USA and Europe.
Internet in CH - unlimited 4G
Roaming in EU - unlimited, calls, SMS, MMS and 1G data/month


Futher details and small print on this page (you pay CHF 40 for the SIM card).

Cool. Checked it out and it seems like a damned good deal, especially for those of us who spend a lot of time in neighbouring lands. Currently on a much more limited Swisscom monthly contract at 39.90, but then EU calls, texts and data are charged on top.

Doesn't need to be ordered today, BTW, (" Offer only available online until 12.06.2016") so I'll check if Swisscom will do me a better deal if I stay with them. Not sure if that sort of thing generally works here, but no harm in trying

Yes, except for a 1G/m data roaming limit.

Re: Salt unlimited offer CHF 49/month - today only

Has anyone had any experience with upgrading internally at Salt?

I have Das Abo from the Post, also via Salt, and I would gladly upgrade for the extra 10CHF a month to get the unlimited internet, I just don't want to lose my number.

Re: Salt unlimited offer CHF 49/month - today only

I upgraded internally 2 weeks ago when they had their anniversary. I got the 50% off 59CHFs deal so now Im paying 24CHFs for the next 24 months.


The deal posted by the OP is for new customers only. I don't think Salt will honour it for existing customers.

My wife upgraded from Coop Prepaid to an (as it was known then) Orange subscription a few years ago. Coop also ran on Orange so this should be easy, right?

Nope!

Instead of keeping her number they made a mistake and released it, and there was no way to get it back. We tried calls, emails, a few stores... nothing. She had to get a completely new number.

But who knows, maybe they've gotten a bit more competent over time...

They won't. Salt is perfectly fine from the technical aspect, I've been getting consistent and good service for a year now. The way they treat their existing customers is abysmal though. It's clearly a fire-and-forget kind of strategy where they only ever give good deals to new customers. If you already sold your soul, don't expect to partake in any new discounts.

The mystore.ch website states this:

What does additional phone lines mean?

They do sometimes offer it up to existing customers. Their recent offer for the half price Swiss unlimited abo was available to existing customers.

It means if you are already a Salt customer and want to take out a second subscription.

They gave it to me. I was transferred 2 times and I ended up by someone who accepted to upgrade my current Salt abo to this deal.
I have to pay more now

Cool, did you wait for the new SIM to arrive? Or did you just do everything right after ordering? I think I will upgrade. Unlimited internet means more YouTube and Twitch on the train...

Re: Salt unlimited offer CHF 49/month - today only

Well, I've spoke to two people at salt now and the only way to do it is to get a new number and sim. You may also end up paying 2 months of dual bills too.

They don't make it easy and the customer agent agreed with me.

Hmmm. What to do....?

Not true...I was about to cancel my Abo as I don't use my private phone that much. Then they had an offer for the Swiss Plus Abo with unlimited calls, SMS and Data in Switzerland. It was cheaper than what I was paying. My current Abo was due to expire in August and I asked if I could renew early for 24 months with the new deal. They said yes, no arguments.

PS: But what they wouldn't let me do was add the 60 min to EU/US and 2.4GB data in the EU. When I signed up for Swiss Plus that wasn't part of the deal. It is now, and even though it is called the same Swiss Plus, I don't get it. I'm not complaining, I am still only paying 29 CHF/month.

Re: Salt unlimited offer CHF 49/month - today only

Started looking at my salt contract and this plan is still cheaper than the one i inherited from orange, but then i looked around the site and see unlimited surf is 35chf.

I hardly ever make phone calls except through facetime, whastapp or messenger for messenging and i'm a huge consumer of data. I couldn't see any pricing for the probable couple of bucks worth of calls and sms i might make a month, does anyone know if the surf deals are for things like tablets only, or can you still make regular calls and sms when needed?

On the same line I'm thinking of their 35chf per month for the Mifi offer. It comes with zattoo bundled so you get 150mbps internet for 35 a month not a whopping figure Swisscom tie you into with their offers.
