First, make a visit to your local Currys store and say you want to sign up to Orange broadband
The store will phone Orange for you and register your details.
We'll then give you a receipt as a record, although no money will be taken at this stage.
In around 10 days your Orange broadband line will be activated and you'll receive your modem from Orange and a letter from us asking you to come back to store to collect your laptop.
You then just need to pop back to your local store bringing with you your receipt, the letter and one form of ID. You can then take away your great laptop deal.

THIS IS APPARENTLY APPLICABLE TO ANY INSTORE LAPTOP.

When I saw this thread title I actually figured this was to compete with the PC World deal.

I haven't looked at the PC World deal yet but I suspect they give everyone the same/similar bottom end laptop? In which case this is a better deal for anyone who wants something a little more powerful :thumbsup:

why will they complete against each other as they are own by the same company?

Thanks for the post Poisonjam. The thing that attracted me to this was, it is applicable to ANY LAPTOP instore. I know there are cheaper outlets for kit, but don't think that they are £300 cheaper than equivalent at currys. Example I gave was for a known branded lower end model, but not a rock bottom base model.

Sounds like a great deal, but a word of caution. Before signing up for a 2yr Orange BB deal I'd check online about the problems people have had with them. My sister and her family had a lot of trouble with them they tried to change ISP after some shocking service including almost a full month with no broadband at all. Orange repeatedly refused to remove the tag on their line which stopped them getting a new ISP activated on the line. Three times another ISP came out to activate their line after Orange gave them the MAC and said it was free to do so and they couldn't because the tag was still there. When I searched I found a lot of people had this problem with them.

If Orange have sorted these things out and customer service has improved from the first few months of the year then it's an excellent deal!!!

I'm guessing you'll probably need to be fairly flexible in your choice of laptop as you don't seem to have any way of reserving a particular model when you sign-up to Orange in-store. You have to wait until the broadband is activated (about 10 days or more) then bring a letter into the store with ID and only then choose your laptop from your local store (if it's not in stock, but is elsewhere you might not be able to get one from another store). They say in the small print that conditions apply, here's hoping they won't be a bit shifty!

After all, Currys did assure me in-store that the post and packing for the 'FREE Vista upgrade would only be a few pounds, not over £16 as it turned out.

Now, I'm off to fill my glass again, it's half-empty at the moment... :)

I forgot about that, Dixons group and all.

Well, it's their "equivalent" deal rather than competing deal. It's still better for the above mentioned reason, in my opinion :)

I'm sure there are still directors for each individual brand/company within Dixons group and I'm sure there's some healthy competition between them.

The Broadband is £14.99 or £19.99. £14.99 is 2Meg 2Gb cap with a free wired router. £19.99 is up to 8Meg No cap, free unlimited landline calls and free Wireless 'Livebox'. Poor deal if just going for the 2gig capped but for £5 a month more getting unlimited (ish)
i.e.
laptop £300 (not taking into account additional upgrade price) over 24 months works out at £12.50 per month with remaining £7.50 for the broadband, first 3 months £10 making the overall cost of the broadband unlimited and unlimited land line phone calls to £6.25 per month
worth considering if you go with a better laptop, ex has livebox and my 3 teenage kids have laptops there and all 3 online all day every day with no problems

The Currys site says you need a BT line for this Broadband deal, not sure what the best deal is for that.

I'd crawl over my own mother to get £300 off a PS3! :)

With that bit of Maths it makes this a cracking deal, wonder if you can choose to have a apple mac with £300 quid off. Going to buy a new laptop this Christmas so lets hope these deals are still on then.
Saw both deals on the TV last night, seems strange that they are all appearing at the same time!!
#15
There is a good reason for these deals, nobody in their right mind would sign up to these companies for BB without them. I wouldn't entrust my BB connection to them for 2 years at any price.
#16
i did it and the contract is only 18 months not 24, and you get 2 for 1 cinema tcikets every wed, the first 3 months are £7.49. Great deal
#17
If you went to Orange normally with the £14.99 offer you can cancel within 30 days if you're not happy. I was wondering if anyone has tried registering via currys, 10 days later after activation used the £300 off and then cancelled with Orange. Not sure what the terms and conditions are. Do currys send you the voucher, so Orange don't know whether you've had £300 off or does Orange send you £300 of voucherr and conditions say you lose right to cancel if you used it?

Oh sorry, only 18 month contract, you did of course check out user reviews about Orange BB for an unbiased picture of their appalling service.

Great deal?:roll:

Just checked with Currys and the offer is apparently only on for 30 days with about 23 days remianing.
