on a seperate note, its a big shame that all vouchers converted into tokens are always printed with a name on. friends/family cant use many deals. shame that

free credit only valid for a month though

Im sick of this £10 = £60 malarky.

What is that in Price per call per min? I could make my own network and say for every £10 I will Give you £1000 and charge calls at £5 per min.

great deal for exsisting Tesco customers.
As its only valid until December 09 I don't think its worth transfering to.

20p flatrate so unless other networks are 4 p a min its good
also 5 favourite numbers are half that so next time best to get some facts before slagging a deal
main thing for this is as mentioned its only valid per month so the 10 quid clubcard vouchers could be used as 40 quid deals without a timelimit etc
dunno if many can use this month to month as would need a big weekly shop to get the 10 vouchers.
depends what you are after but its potentially good
(can you still do that 'ping a pound' thing? if so then seems even better)

I guess it works out at one sixth of their normal charges, so effectively 3.3p per minute for calls and 1.66p per text. Provided, as pointed out above, you actually use your entire £60 in a month.

It seems they also halve the charges to your five favourite numbers too, so 1.65p per minute 0.83p per text to them.
#8
Right so... 20p a call = 5mins is £1

60 * 5 = 300mins

So for £10 your getting 300 mins, and no free texts

So compare that with o2, for 9.79 you get 300mins free and 150 texts.

So only good for existing customers and non texters

This is the same kind of deal that made the current credit crisis, get a £500,000 mortgage for the price of £100,000 mortgage, then when they stop the special deals what do you do?
If you get used to spending £60 a month in calls they are hoping you will continue spending £60 a month when the deal is finished.
That kind of model is not working well in the housing market, car market, or any other market what makes Tesco's think it's going to work well for the Mobile phone market?
#10
So I take it that you get the 20 pound each month until you reach the 60 (something like £20 straight away for your top-up then £20 each month for the next two months)

So if that right its like spending £20 a month?

Thats very selective reading you have - your 5 favourite numbers you get double the amount above.

so 600 mins OR 1200 text - that is not bad for your £10

This is ongoing - It doesnt finish in December 09 - The only thing that finishes then is the fact that you get double clubcard points on topup purchases - you will still get £60 for £10

No when you top up your £20 (That you got for your £10 voucher) after 48 hours your account will be credited with a further £40. You will have 1 month to spend this £40 which is used up first but the original £20 can be carried over. You dont have to do it every month just when the original credit runs out. When you top up another £20 (£10 voucher) they will give you another £40 regardless how long ago the previous free gift was.... Hope that makes sense.

Shame free credit is only valid for a month. Don't think I could spend even half of it in a month.

i have been thinking about that for a week now £5tesco voucher - double up to £10 plus £10 extra credit. are you 100% per cent sure you use your free credit first? i was convinced that you have to use your credit first and then you get to spend your free credit..

Usually the way it works is free credit is used first then your paid for credit (taken the example of blyk network). However, tesco could be different, but its unlikely. HTH :-D

Yes I use tesco mobile anyway but when the £40 at least is only valid for a month its a bit misleading really. If I used that much time in a month I would have a contract phone.

I think ASDA are 8p a minute compared to Tesco's 20p but not entirely sure.

Me neither, so I don't top up that much. It's a pretty good tarrif for light users I think.

Topup £10 (i.e. £5 clubcard voucher), you only get £10 free credit. That's 50 mins or 100 texts, or double those amounts if you only contact upto 5 favourite people, or any combination thereof (50 favourite people minutes + 50 unfavourite people texts or whatever). That's usually more than enough for me in that month. Then I have the actual £10 of non-free credit to run down as slowly as I like for as long as it takes (guess there's a limit in the small print like 6 months or 12 months or something, but I've never gone that far).

Or topup £15 (clubcard voucher doubleup has to be multiple of £5 so can't do this in one transaction by itself unfortunately, can buy two £15 topups with £15 of clubcard vouchers maybe), you get £30 free credit. Which is 150 mins, 300 texts, double those for favourites etc. etc.

If you're a heavier user than that, then maybe it seems to work out OK for you or maybe not. Contracts are almost certainly better of course but some people prefer PAYG for various reasons even if they do use their phones a lot.

Most PAYG tarrifs do seem to only give you a choice of either free minutes or free texts when you topup, which is why I prefer this one. Can anyone advise a better one for light users? My £10 tesco topup lasts me ages!

Plus MAYBE you find this is the best use of clubcard vouchers for you. Obviously it's better than just spending them on groceries, butt here are lots more of the doubleup deals that you might find better value, and of course the classic quadrupleup deals still exist (think I'll still save my clubcard vouchers for pizza express even though I'm on tesco mobile).

just a note but its not that good, looks good in figures but when you compare it with 3 £25 for 700 anynetwork anytime minutes........3 are cheaper with the calls costing 0.034 a minute if my sums are right.

http://www.three.co.uk/Pay_As_You_Go/Stretch_your_Top_up

It's only £0.034 per minute (or per text, they cost the same as minutes on 3, nice and simple) if you use EXACTLY 700 each month. Otherwise it is more.

As I understand it from the T&C, to get that deal on 3 you have to convert your £25 topup to a stretch to get that many minutes/texts (lets you use any combination of minutes and texts which is good though), and the stretch is only valid for a month. Then I believe you have NO credit left, so you have to topup again immediately. If I've misinterpreted that then someone please correct me.

Slightly fairer comparison would be to the £20 stretch which is 500 mins, since this tesco voucher is for £20, but if you need more than 500 then I guess the tesco one isn't for you anyway. I guess add on another £5 of credit to all of the tesco minutes to compare it to the £25 deal on 3, but that won't be worth quite as much as another 200 minutes/texts but doesn't all need to be used in that month like the 3 stretch.

The tesco one does give you £20 credit on your phone that lasts beyond the month if you don't spend it. So your "£40 free" credit in the month when you topup gets you 200 mins, 400 texts, 400 mins to 5 friends, 800 texts to 5 friends or any combination of those. And in the same month OR LATER you still have 100 mins, 200 texts, 200 mins to 5 friends, 400 texts to 5 friends or any combination of those to buy out of your £20 credit. So that's a total of at least 300 mins, 600 texts, or double if you mostly contact 5 numbers. Depending on your exact usage pattern, that could work out a lot better than the 500 minutexts from 3, plus you don't have to topup again immediately or use all of it in the same month.

3 does have other advantages/disadvantages like poor signal in some areas, skype calling etc. And this does have the advantage of seemingly costing £10 not £20 thanks to clubcard vouchers (but maybe there are better value ways to spend those vouchers, so I've treated it as £20 for the calculations).

So definitely not cut and dry. You might prefer either deal.

I edited out my rant about how a £21 contract I'd found was COMPLETELY different to the tesco deal, and now I've edited out my being an idiot and replaced it with a kinder rant about how the £25 PAYG jobby is only a bit different.

I edit posts too much and too often :)

So compare that with o2, for 9.79 you get 300mins free and 150 texts.



You don't get 300 minutes free you paid 9.79 for them. :?
#26
OK comparing this to O2 £9.79 now
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/315611/o2-sim-9-79-a-month-150-minutes-300/

- O2 is a contract... you can cancel at any time, but you HAVE to keep paying that price per month or lose it, but with this tesco PAYG £10 could last more than a month on light usage.
- If you go over 150 minutes + 300 texts, you'll pay a price similar to the standard tesco rate (i.e. the full price you'd pay out of your "free" monthly credit OR your real credit).
- If you allot £10.21 of phone bill to bring the O2 price up to the £20 cash you top up for this deal, that's only an extra 52 mins, 87 texts or some combination of those. See my above posts for how much you'd get on the tesco deal either topping up just £10 or the suggested £20
- Clubcard vouchers

Tesco seems better to me in nearly every situation including fairly light or fairly heavy usage (but I expect there's a middle ground where you use it not too much and not too little and paying exactly £9.79 and using only the included texts and minutes works out cheaper than this, but how many people fall right into that middle category?)
#27
I would say most people would be better off using their vouchers towards deals, which give you 4x the amount. Also this credit they give is only valid for a month, may be your paid for credit is used first, and their call charges are more than other providers.

Not saying it's a cold deal but when you do the maths most people could probably find a better deal elsewhere.

Not voting either way.
#28

Paid credit definitely isn't used first, and lasts beyond the month. Free credit is lose it or use it for the month. Call charges are different everywhere (incredibly close to the O2 £9.79 though!) which is why you have to think long and hard (or write long and complicated posts) about the merits of number of minutes/texts under different people's usage instead of just saying "£60 credit".

And to be fair, most of the 4x tesco clubcard deals exclude you from other offers such as half price or BOGOF so in practice they often work out to about 2x, same as this... but I do agree there are probably better uses than this for most people (even though I like the mobile tarrif). As long as you get SOMETHING with them and don't use them at the checkout for your groceries then it's not too bad!

So you could just use the free credit for the year then sell the sim card at the end of the year with £240 credit on it?
#30
Others seem keen to do all the maths, so has anyone worked out how this would work if one only topped up alternate months. One would use the feee mins in the top up month and then the paid mins the following month, but I cant get my head around how many mins / texts that would get one for effectively £5 per month, and how this compares with the competing networks with their no-expiring PAYG credit and monthly contracts. Any thoughts ??
PS - Have realised the catch. Has to be a min £15 top-up.
"How do I Triple my credit?

You can do £10 (£5 clubcard voucher) but this would only double your credit (bonus £10) instead of triple

Neat idea. Should work fine as long as there's nothing in the small print about a maximum credit limit or paid credit expiring. Don't know how much someone will pay for a SIM with £240 on it... less than £240 surely! Or just spend that £240 on texts/calls in between topups... it will last over 6 months if you keep using less than what was the "free" credit each month in the other twelve.

By £5 per month then you mean £10 clubcard voucher (£20 topup) every two months? For that or a £15 topup (can't be done with a single clubcard voucher unfortunately), Your month's free credit is double the value of what you topped up (they advertise triple, but that's your paid topup plus double free value topup), so you have £40 worth to use or lose in that month. That's upto 200 mins, 400 texts, 400 mins to your five fave numbers, 800 texts to your five fave numbers, or some combination of those (not all of them added together!). And then your £20 of actual credit would get you half of that to use again for the next month or as long as you like.

Or £5 clubcard voucher (£10 topup) every two months? The free credit you get for the month matches the paid credit (so it's "double" over all) so you have £10 to use or lose in the month after topping up: that's upto 50 mins, 200 texts, 200 mins to your fave five, 400 texts to your fave five, or combination of those. And then when your free credit is used or it's the end of the month, you have exactly the same again to use in your own time. Works good for me.

Don't think so, sorry. But you could still buy £20 of ringtones and use your £40 of free credit for calls and texts.

International numbers. Any numbers when you're abroad (roaming).

Got to work it out on a case by case basis but it's aces for me.

How many minutes and texts do you usually USE (not get free, but actually use) in a month, and what proportion of those are to the same five numbers, and do you have spare clubcard vouchers that you don't want to spend on any other deal?

Well depends on what you want for the 4x deals... I usually just get restaurant vouchers, but then I'm excluded from frequent BOGOF offers, set meals etc. so I effectively get closer to 2x.
