I'm already with virgin for broadband,tv and landline.Im out of contract now so I can leave them anytime but I'm reluctant to

If you're already out of contract call to give your notice and guaranteed you will be offered a better retention deal. If you shop about and can get a price for a new customer deal with sky etc then they will match the price or better it, to keep your custom. I phoned to give my notice the other day and as I had a figure already worked out for what deals I could get elsewhere they matched it instantly plus offered credit to my account as I would be getting topcashback or quidco on a new deal. I'm not a high spending customer (£25 a month broadband only).

I'd probably threaten to leave them, look for better deals elsewhere, BT, Sky and Talk Talk do all 3, factor in cashback etc and work out how much it will cost, then ring them up saying ur going to leave and say uve got a better deal elsewhere and hopefully they will match it, but be prepared to actually leave Incase they don't offer you anything decent.

So you just told Virgin Media the cashback you could've got from TCB or Quidco, and they matched the whole amount? Wow, really? :|

Well I worked out with Talk Talk I would be paying £20 a month then get £80 cash back which would bring it to £15 month (for fibre). She said the best she could do was an official price of £18 a month but would put credit on to the account for £3 per month which would match the monthly price of talk talk after cash back :) so not the whole amount of £80 but I'm paying the same now as I would be elsewhere and don't have the hassle of switching provider etc

Cool, thanks sparky.

Just one thing though, the maths doesn't add up...

£20x12= £240
£240-£80= £160
£160 divide 12 = £13.33 a month

So that's slightly less than £15 a month, is that what you meant instead? Or am I missing something??? :D

Yeah sorry I should have said 'roughly' - I had only done the calculations roughly in my head before I called Virgin and said on the phone that worked out at around £15ish so she matched the £15. I worked it out later once I tracked down an elusive pen (why can you never find one when you need it?!) and thought it wasn't worth phoning back for just over £1.50 a month especially when cash back isnt even guaranteed.

After all of this it's just occurred to me my phone and tablet both have calculators on them... :|
