This is a somewhat known process to many HUKD members but I thought best to post to provide a full rundown so everyone can reap the benefits.

It does seem pretty long but I think it's worth it for 50% off any digital purchase on certain Stores.
Plus, reap the benefits from O2 Priority and O2 Rewards.

Method:

Click Get Deal to go to the O2 SIM order page, fill in your details and tick both boxes at the bottom. It'll usually take up to 3 working days for the SIM to get to you.

Put the SIM in your phone, boot up and call 4444 to top up £10.

Text FREE10 to 21500 and wait for the confirmation that the bonus credit has been applied. Takes up to 2 hours. Phone 4444 again to confirm this before moving on to the next step.

*** If you're using all the credit on Google Play the tutorial ends here, enjoy. If not, move on ***

Go to your SEN account online and select Add Funds to Wallet, Mobile Top Up, enter £15 and the O2 phone number. Reply Y to the text message to confirm, this message costs 10p out of your credit.

Youll be left with £4.90.

*** If you're on an iPhone the tutorial ends here. There's £15 for your PSN Wallet and £4.90 for airtime.

If you're on Android, carry on ***

Go to Google Play and spend at least £4.40, best advised you add whatever you're buying to your Google Play Wishlist to find them again quicker.

Find an app or game, click Buy and then the Google Play Balance, check Other Payment Methods and select O2 Billing. It'll verify and then put you through to the payment window. Make sure where it says payment method it shows as O2 Billing.

You should now have 50p or less in credit. Again, this can be confirmed by calling 4444 or texting Balance to 20202.

You're now eligible to use O2's Lend Us a Quid service.

Call 4444 and select option 6, hit 1 to confirm. This will add £1 credit lent by O2.

Go back to Google Play and refund the apps or games purchased. You'll now have £5.90 credit.

Go back to your SEN Account as before and top up the remaining £5, confirm with a reply to the text and voila.

You've also got the 80p left from all that spare, so you can freely spend this in Google Play or use the credit on texts, calls or data.

Couple this with the Days of Play Sale on the PlayStation Store at the moment and you can grab Horizon Zero Dawn or a 12 month PS+ subscription for just £15, or there's God of War III, Uncharted 4, The Last Guardian or Ratchet and Clank for £10 each.
(They're not that price on the Store but that is essentially what you're paying out of your own pocket for them)

Edit 1: Xbox Carrier Billing instructions. Unsure as to whether they will charge as the PlayStation service does.

http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/promotions/buy-game-credit

Edit 2: Some purchases from PSN will require the above to be done more than once.

I'll look to edit this as questions or new methods come in.

I feel like I need to add this: P-L-E-A-S-E do not overuse this method. They used to offer 20 quid instead of 10, until too many people abused it by ordering too many in too short a time period. A few a month is grand.

It's on offer for £29.99 for 12 months of PS Pluson the PlayStation Store. Buy that and as you've only paid half (topped up £10 and got £10 free) its as though you're buying it for £15.


Nope.

You've topped up £10 and got £10 free, then you have to top up your psn account with £10, so you've 'spent' £20 and got 1p spare psn credit.

In the past I just called up O2 and asked them for 10p credit. They usually apply it without asking questions.


Fair enough, if you do it this way it saves a call and gives you 80p Google Play credit too.

Haha, unfortunately this is the best I can do in terms of a TL;DR version of the above: Order SIM, Top Up PSN.

£1 credit "lent" by O2... so this needs paying back to them?

I've been using this method since the days we got £20 bonus.

If you top £11 to the sim, this will give you £21 after the bonus, allowing you to topup £20 to your PSN wallet in one transaction, with 90p remaining on the sim for the Play store.

I prefer this method as the company who manages the mobile payments limits the usage to only 3 times a month.

Also, it is best to choose the £25 sim because you end up with £21 credit and the sim will automatically take it for the sim bundle usage.

*Extra bonus*
You can claim £5 cashback via Quidco, which takes a number of months to process.

Thread's missing out on O2 rewards instructions. If you sign up to rewards now, you can claim 50p credit after 30th June meaning you can use the full £20 for PSN credit. Same applies for every 3 month period (Jul-Sep, Oct-Dec)
#15
thanks!
#16
Thanks, man! I've used this for a long while, back when they gave £20 extra credit instead of just £10.

Just a quick question, though. I ordered a £10 Big Bundles SIM instead and it doesn't have the FREE10 offer on the back; am I still eligible? I've ordered an International SIM anyway but if this will work I may as well use it as well

I wouldnt top up on the Big Bundles SIM until you get a confirmation you'll receive the extra credit. If you get an email confirming this go ahead, otherwise stay away.

This is pretty much why I've nearly went all digital. It was even better back when you got £30 for £10.

If I manage to get £20 funds from one sim, how would I go about repeating the process for £40?

Ah, those were the days. Getting a year of Plus for £13.33 and new releases for £20. Shame they stopped that.

What I do is just order another SIM. You may have to change some details, but it still works
#24
Ahh the old O2 trick. I remember you could get aorund £60 credit for £20 if I remember correctly? (Top up £10 and get £20 free)
#25
Thanks for the post OP, I will do this, but unsure if i like the refund idea on playstore, but the playstation plus would cost £20 in the end altogether

£10 spend on credit for the extra free '£10' from o2

Then another £10 spend to make it up to £30 to get playstation plus at its current offer.

Could anyone tell me where the extra £5 comes from in order to make it up to £15 of psn credit?
#27
I've done this a few times, biggest issue I've had is that getting the top up to work over the phone (i.e. The only way to top up increments of £1 and not £10) is a right faff. Ive tried 5 different cards and managed to get 1 to work over numerous SIM cards.

What do you mean when you say the sim will take it for the bundle usage?

Also how do you top up £1

Well, you've got the £10.01 left for other purchases :{

As well as missing out the O2 rewards step in the OP, Quidco or TCB should also be used for further savings. I think you can do Quidco once per household per year and TCB 3 times per household per year

when you topup by calling 4444, you can type £11. Although topups in store only allows topups in £5, £10, £15, £20...

The o2 free sims all come with bundles. eg. topup £10 & you'll get X amount of mins, txts & data. If you go for the £25 sim bundle, you'll not actually have enough credit for them to activate the bundle.

hope that makes sense. ;)

hi chunk3rvd, I can confirm that Quidco does do multiple cashbacks a year. Infact, I got 3 confirmed in April 2017 alone :)

This still going on! Haha. Man I abused this back when we got £20. I must of put £1000s altogether on multiple accounts. Plus got loads back from quidco and topcashback. I wonder how much I've cost O2 by finding that lend us a quid trick lol. Just a heads up for some... There is a limit to how many times you can top up your PS account using this a month, remember what stuff you purchased on Play store the next time you do it because you can't get a refund again on the same thing.

Wouldn't the tesco triple credit be a better option, 10, 15 0r 20 trebles so you have 30, 45 or 60?

Not with the International SIM. That allows you to keep the credit after you top up
