Only second post so I'm not sure how good a deal this is, but thought I'd post it anyway just in case anyone was interested.

It's basically as the title says, a free HTC Wildfire with 300 mins, unlimited texts, 500mb data on orange for £25 per month on a 24 month contract.

However, there is 16 months free due to redemption and quidco are offering £50 cash back...

This means that it would be £25 * 24 months = £600 deal
But 16 months * £25 = £400 back from redemption
As well as this £50 quidco so in total a saving of £450
£600 - £450 = £150 over the 24 months
£150 / 24 months = £6.25 per month

I'm not sure how useful this deal is to anyone but I thought it was worth a post :)



EDIT: Get £100 from cex.co.uk for the phone to make this a £2 sim only contract

I'll never bother with "redemption", you could easily fin this phone in a cheaper contract.

Google "MobilePhones-Direct".

i didn't take a picture of them to show the internet, it's just a picture i choose of myself to use as my avatar, not quite sure what your jealousy has to do with this deal though, unless you fancy blokes you shouldn't really be looking that hard anyway.

i have used onestopphoneshop which belongs to CPW with mobiles.co.uk, they reallllly screwed me around with cashback. I posted recorded on due dates but they said they never got the first bill and hence disqualified all the other cashbacks, i called and wrote but they kept ignoring. wrote to CPW and they didnt respond either, called them too but they said its OSPS problem. etc.. I have used dialaphone in the past and they were heaqdache free.

The OP doesn't say how many redemptions there are, but I think it is 5, then unless you want to have the problems of them saying they never received your claim you will need to use Royal Mail Special Delivery costing around £5.50 a time so factor in £27.50 extra cost into the equation and it adds £1.15 a month to the deal (still cheap at £7.40 a month).

You do have the option of sending your pdf copy of your bill to the company. Therefore saving you the above extra.
I ordered this phone at 3am on saturday morning, it arrived yesterday. I cancelled the insurance and gadget support. Works out at less than £200 for a good montly allowance, a very good phone and 2 years of contract. I think its a great deal
#20
As above email is safer and cheaper, and if you forget to claim on time they still let you claim for further redemptions unlike other companies.

Vodafone are doing 300 minutes on a wildfire for £20 per month on a 24 month contract. With £130 cash back from topcashback works out at £14.58 a month with no faffing about with rebates.

I stress do not go for redemption offers, this is where companies make money.

Ok-ish deal but I prefer: http://www.t-mobile.co.uk/shop/pay-monthly/htc-wildfire/#

Just a pity they're out of stock at the moment. :(

Do a search on MSE and you will regret buying a cashback deal from this company.
Don't be misled just because they are part of CPW.

I had a problem with cashback with e2save (part of CPW). They said my phone bill was a colour copy and not the actual bill, so they would not pay cashback. I took them to Small Claim Court. I won because they could not produce the evidence eg the photocopied bill they said i sent. They used an expensive firm of city lawyers (eg £100 per hour).

I'm on my 5th redemption offer and I've not had a single issue. If you follow the terms and conditions its quite easy to do it all (excluding a couple of issues on here - but thats more down to individual companies and not the offers in general).

That is outrageous - Orange bills often look like copies, E2Save used to accept photocopies of bills but it seems as more people are successful when claiming the more they try more obscure methods of minimising their pay-outs. Good for you on the SC win.

dont like mobiles really, my dad got a contract with them via redemption and it used to be 60 days to claim but during his contract they changed it without informing him so it went to 30 days and when he went to claim it was to late as he did it on like the 40th day!.

The next claim they wouldnt accept for some reason, then the next they are currently processing and have a massive "backlog" or so they say!. Hes been using redemption contract deals for years and never had problems with other companies. Dial a phone is much better IMO due to reliability and ease of use, if you get the choice go for them not this company!.

As its a redemption deal i wont vote hot because your redemption is at risk with this company from experience which ruins the whole deal :P.

i recently took out an e2save deal online tariff which means i won't get any hard copies. i'm sure they stated photocopies are acceptable. when did your problem occur?
