A rarity here, as we see the return of a couple of good cashback contract deals with e2save, a company owned by CPW who i've had lots of positive experience with in the past. Hurry if you want one of these offers as they're beginning to die out.

e2save.com have the Sony Ericsson W200i Walkman phone for free on a 12 month o2 contract with 11 months free line rental. So, for £35 (after cashback) you get the Sony Ericsson W200i (for free), 12 months line rental, 400 any time, any network minutes and 500 texts per month. This works out at £2.92 per month after cashback.

The Sony Ericsson W200i mobile phone is a fully-integrated multi-media Walkman device. Everything you need for a full Walkman® experience is included with the phone: youll find software for copying music from CD to phone, a 128MB memory card, stereo headphones and a dedicated Walkman® key that goes straight to the Walkman player menu. You can also write emails and browse the web, all to the sound of your music. Just keep your Walkman® player or FM radio tuned in and turned on. A 128MB expandable memory allows you to store loads of your songs; and also images taken with the VGA camera featuring 4x zoom. An intergrated photo album means you can capture and store spontaneous snapshots, or share them with friends and family. With everything you need from a multi-media phone, the Sony Ericsson W200i is the Walkman phone for everyone.

This offer works by cashback which you claim from e2save at specified intervals. You have 30 days to send the claim. You must have paid each bill in its entirety, so please only use this deal if you can afford to pay the bills on time and remember to keep on top of the cashback. Use recorded delivery when sending the claims. e2save are a part of the Carphone Warehouse group and reliable when sending cashback.

Purchase via QuidCo.com for £36.50 cashback - that's £1.50 profit. **Remember to decline/cancel the insurance that they try to give you as it can be very expensive!!**

Posted on the similar thread for the Nokia deal...just in case it helps anyone..

A couple of things to be aware of.

1. With O2 if you want to port your number you need to have the PAC code when you apply online. You cannot port your number afterwards.

2. Be very careful to make sure you get the correct months bills. Once connected and I have my bill date I am going to email them to get them to clarify which bill they want for the first claim.

The T&Cs online (which can't easily be screen printed to printer) at the time of order say :

Instalment 1 - You will need to claim 6 months from connection and you have 30 days from this date to submit your claim. Send us your claim form and monthly bill showing your name, address, mobile number and tariff you are connected to. (This bill must be no older than 28 days when we receive it and have no balance brought forward.)

However, the email confirmation I received says :

To gain the remainder of your line rental / cash back please send your 6th, 8th, 10th and 12th monthly bills within 30 days of the date stated on the relevant airtime bill, to us and we will credit you by cheque with £62.25 each time.


The latest bill you have in your possession at precisely 6 months from connection will not necessarily be the 6th monthly bill.... so they are already contradicting themselves (both with which bill and the date from which you have 30 days to claim from)....

At worst I will pay £20ish per month if all my claims are rejected (assuming Quidco and automatic cashback are paid). At best it is free for 12 months.

Thanks for the info Searcher2.

So, personally I prefer mobiles2yourdoor offer to e2save ones. But these days, cashback offers become rare. duckmagicuk2, do you know any reason for this?


Well, there were a lot of smaller firms that e2save, CPW, OSPS, Phones4U and Mobiles2YourDoor were in competition with but most of these have gone under with the strain that 12 months free deals put on the cashflow of the firm. Therefore, the bigger boys don't have as much competition and can offer deals which aren't as good as when they were competing with the small firms.

I'd also go as far as saying that people get suspicious when offered a deal this good so they probably get more sales on lower cashback offers anyway.

Quid co is not working at the moment. Hot deal though.
#5
Voted hot. E2save have been reliable for cashback in my experience.

Am I correct in thinking that the SE W200i is better than the Nokia phone on the other thread?

I'm not familiar with SE's, but that Nokia is a basic model - it's one of the most basic S40 phones and is what you would've expected to get a few years ago, really.

There's even more basic ones, though - the 1000 and 2000 series phones, so it's not the bottom of the line, or anything.

I'd have said so but I'm a bit of a Sony Ericsson fanboy. The music player is definitely much better, SE's tend to have less bugs in their firmware and less problems than Nokia's and as for everything else like the camera there's not much in it...

I did one of these deals with them just before Christmas with Orange (12 months line rental free on a 12 months contract). I haven't got any money back yet as I have to wait four months before making a claim. However, you get a number of 'extras' which you need to cancel. For example, the free insurance (£5.99 per month after the first month), the free Talk Me Through It (£1.99 per month after the first month), the free Orange data allocation (£4 per month, I think, after the first month). You also get itemised billing (£1.50 per month) which, I think, I need to keep to be able to claim my money back. Not sure on that for definite though. I got £35 cash back through Quidco so £18 for itemised billing, plus some money for stamps and envelopes means that I should more than break even. Not bad for 300 minutes and 500 texts a month. The risk is that I get the claim process wrong. If I do, that will make it very expensive.

Service so far has been good. The LG phone turned up the next day (on the Sunday before Christmas) and works. The only problem I have had is cancelling the Talk Me Through It service. I rang a couple of times and just got an answer phone. The e-mails I sent just bounced (even after checking the address carefully) but I eventually cancelled by phone (it is an 0870 number though).

Argh, I forgot that insurance warning. Adding to OP.

I've always had bad experiences with E2save cashback as the deadlines are always very tight.

There is a brilliant website here:

[url]www.saynoto0870.com[/url]

simpley type in the company that you are calling and it will give a list of their premium numbers and the landline number it connects to. I must have saved ~40 quid so far by using it.
#12
in reply to deadkeen,you do not need to keep itemised billing as i have been using OSPS for quite a few years and when Orange started to charge for an itemised bill I just changed it to the basic statement,and still sent off my bills for the cashback with no problems,hope this helps why pay extra when you don't have too.

Why are they tight? You have 30 days. In any case it should be a matter of just numbering your bills and as soon as the appropriate bill comes along - get it copied and sent off at the first opportunity thus giving E2Save time to get back to you within the 30 days if there is a problem.

I do not suggest leaving it until the last minute. With my current deal with the Link I send it off as soon as possible and ring them after a week or two to make sure they received it.

To quote e2saves's entry on quidco

e2save are the UK's number 1 internet phone retailer! Offering "HIGH STREET VALUES at INTERNET PRICES" e2save offer an unrivalled choice of handsets and tariffs across all major networks - many deals are exclusive!

For genuine tracked transactions completed wholly online, you can earn:
£7.50 for Virgin Sim Only
£36.50 for a purchase of and completed contract (other networks)
£2.50 for PAYG mobile phones

Note the £36.50 will be paid on completed contract - i.e. after your 12 months is up, so if you took out your contract in March, you will probably be paid in June or July 2008.

I got a deal like this a year ago, all be it with carphonewarehouse.

It was also with O2. I tried to cancel it after 11months as i didn't want to actually start to pay, but had real probs!

They offered me the same deal, but said it would be autocash back this time (wouldn't have to claim)... i didn't show much interest and so they offered me 50mins, 100txts on a12 month contract - but with 12 months free!

Anyhoo, moral of the story is that it might be worth gettinga deal like this - i'm not sure if it's the O2 or carphonewarhouse bit that got me the deal though...

God knows how they make money!

agree e3save not had any problem getting my cash back for last 3 years

I don't see how I can go wrong with my Price Match deal, I have always sent claims recorded delivery and if you log into the 'Your Account' section on the E2save website you can see all your claim dates:
Offer BreakdownYou GetSend month 4 claim between 18th Mar 2008 and 17th Apr 2008£88.00Send month 6 claim between 17th May 2008 and 16th Jun 2008£88.00Send month 8 claim between 16th Jul 2008 and 15th Aug 2008£88.00Send month 10 claim between 14th Sep 2008 and 14th Oct 2008£88.00Send month 12 claim between 13th Nov 2008 and 13th Dec 2008£88.00

I was connected on the 20th of November. You CAN port your number with o2 after you have placed your order. It does state you need to provide your PAC when placing your order but this isn't true, I called o2 and ported my number after receiving the phone. I'm also billed by o2 and not CPW o2, I always receive my bills within a couple of days.

You don't need you PAC when signing up. I transferred my number about a week after receiving the phone. It seems that although e2save are part of carphone warehouse (CPW) all the O2 cashback deals are with direct O2 contracts. When you want to port your number phone O2 direct not CPW O2 which is a different number. Easiest and cheapest way (free) is to phone 202 on your new O2 mobile. As these aren't price match deals might want to go through onestopphoneshop (OSPS) instead and get £37.50 cashback from quidco. I know its only £1 more but for just buying it from a different domain its worth it. OSPS is also part of CPW in case anybody hasn't heard of them.

they are taking orders but have no stock of the handset at the moment - said its going to be at least 7-14 dyas for delivery. lets see what happens

Did they tell you this on the phone or by email? I ordered on Friday and received an email saying that they were waiting for checks by 02 and it would take 24-48 hours (presumably working days). No mention of stock - but then again I ordered as soon as the offer came out so they should have had some then.

Sorry if I misled anyone about porting a number to O2 in my earlier post. It is just what they told me on the phone and I think the website says it too!
#25
I'm thinking about doing this deal, but instead of getting cashback, getting a PS3 instead.

It will work out at £430 for the year, as you have to pay £10 for the phone, but I think it's a pretty good deal that saves the hassle of having to send off bills and wait for cheques. With a free PS3 you're getting something of £280 worth of value straight up...

Yup. Well, I think you have to claim for it or it arrives within 28 days. Not sure of e2save's rules on that at the moment. But as you say - an item now is probably worth just as much as the cash in the future. :)

Where is the link on there website to port your number?
#28
So once the 12mths is up, if you want to take your number to another network, they dont allow it?

Yes. The difficulty is in transferring your existing number to this contract.

It is part of the order process.
On a separate note I have received my email saying they have no stock of the Sony etc. and I will be prioritised... (yes right!). So they must not have had any stock when they put the promotion up as I reckon I was one of the first to go for the deal.

Not that I am aware of. The problem (I thought) was porting your number to O2 but previous posters say it is possible after you have taken out the contract... so there appears to be no issue with porting.
#32
The only issue would be if you ported via o2 and e2save didn't accept the bills because it was a different number on the bill...

Although it seems you *can* port as a part of the order.

Just go on to the Quidco website and search E2save click through on the link(make sure you are logged in) and (hopefully) your cashback will appear when you make the transaction on the website after 24 hours or so.

I recently placed an order with E2save for my dad, the phone was a Nokia 6300 in black. Had the usual email stating 24 - 48 hours, 10 days later still no phone so in the end I called E2save and changed the phone to the Nokia 6300 in silver. The deal was better than the original deal so everything worked out ok in the end. I also made sure the order number was the same as I had placed the order through Quidco.
If you log into 'Your Account' on the E2save website it will give your order status as backorder! Expect to wait at least 7 days.

so its a dead end? you cant transfer your number to or from this contract?

Where is all this information coming from? Yes you can port to o2 after receiving your phone and there are no porting out restrictions after the 12 months either. As mentioned earlier I ported to o2 when I received my phone and I'm billed by o2 not o2 CPW.
