Blackberry Bold 9700 on o2 for 24 months from £18.75 a month

£18.75

Ok... so let me explain the deal a bit more, before people decide to judge. Its a good deal if people get the quidco.

Benefits:
Quidco are offering £150 for a Blackberry contract taken out in with o2 in March.
o2 are offering upto £180 credit for Blackberry contracts taken out before March 28th.
Total cash back/credit towards phone: £330

Costs:
£32.50 per month for 24 months = £780
£37.50 per month for 18 months = £675

so it could be:
£780 - £330 = £450 divided up by 24 months = £18.75 a month.
£675 - £285 = £390 divided up by 18 months = £21.67 a month.

Pretty good deal for 300 minutes, unlimited texts, unlimited internet and blackberry service.

You could always go one step further and sell the Bold (like i will be doing, as I have one already) and make a cool £250-£300 on Ebay, leaving you with a virtually non existant expense each month for your phone contract.... just a thought!

I have not been paid from 02 from last september Quidco cant do nowt .

bad luck keep trying

The o2 site says u get £135 for the £37.50 tarrif on 18 months not £180

Thanx ordered one Thanx Hot Hot Hot

*How does saving up to £180 on your bill sound?

If you buy the BlackBerry 9700 Bold on our £32.50, 24 month and above tariffs, and select the BlackBerry Unlimited bolt-on, we'll charge you the usual £7.50 a month fee for it but credit your account with £180 by the time you get your second bill. If you buy the 9700 Bold on the £37.50, 18 month and above tariffs, we will credit your account with £135. So you'll effectively get the BlackBerry bolt-on offering unlimited emails and internet browsing on your BlackBerry for absolutely nothing! No strings, just credit on your account. That's a whole heap of value for not very much cost.

its workout £18.75 pm for 24 month

Really good deal! I'd still add insurance onto £18.75 though £7.50 a month so £26.25. Still an awesome deal.

it is a good deal Heat Added!!

I'm not voting either way. It's a good price but the 3G coverage on O2 is the worst ever.
look at
crave.cnet.co.uk/mob…htm

So basically means that
Without Blackberry Bolt on --> its 32.50 pm
But since u definetly need it the total price is 32.50 +7.50=40 pm = 960 for 24 months

Deducting the cash Back amounts

960-180(from O2) - 150 (from Quidco) =630 for 24 months
So net cost = 26.25 per month


is this correct ?

No - The price on the website for Blackberry handsets includes the Blackberry bolt on. No need to add the 7.50 per month.

I've just bought the Bold 9700 on O2 through Quidco on 18 months... it has tracked as £50 so far on Quidco. However, it does say on Quidco that "All pay monthly contracts will be validated 2 months after activation date"... so I am hoping more to come!

It should work out to £27 pm for the 18 month period after the quidco and O2 cash back.
BUT O2 are devious snakes. I rang up to find out about my contract that came to its 18 month term, told multiple times that the 33% discount would expire however this was untrue checking my online profile and speaking to a very helpful customer services rep.
