Vodafone Black Friday Sale

Haven't seen a thread on this. Vodafone offering €50/€100 off selected PAYG phones if you switch from another provider over the next couple of weeks.

Looking for a new phone for my daughter for Christmas. Already with Vodafone but can source a SIM from another provider to switch.

Two I was interested were:
Samsung A20E €150 reduced to €50 when switching
Samsung A40 €200 reduced to €150 when switching

Anyone familiar with these? The A20E looks a bargain but a bit suspicious they're giving the bigger discount on the cheaper phone . . . .

I can vouch for the A20E - great phone, like a lot of us I got it in the Dunnes Stores Vodafone offer in August. I cant find a fault in it. The rapid charger is brilliant - from 15% battery to full in around 1 hour. There are good cases on Aliexpress or Ebay for it. (to save having to replace the phone sooner - getting a case is always a good idea)
I know nothing about the A40 Im afraid
