But you no longer get the £1.25 per month paper free billing discount so really its £10.74 per month.

Hardly worth the effort for 80p per month saving over the current £11.54pm line rental.

Cold for me.

i heard about this i thought this is a real con... ''line rental saver''... why not call it ''give us your money sooner'' so they are putting the price up, but trying to hide it by putting this offer as they call it out there for people to take up.

Ok i suppose if you got 100 quid just to give to BT when they ask for it!

That's interesting. Didn't realize that the paper free discount was that much!! However the rental increase in October means that the saving is worth while and more than 80p.

Yes but the saving is greater by avoiding the Oct. increase going up as much as £13.29.

Its going up 50p in October. £13.29 - £1.25 paper free = £12.04. i.e 50p. So 3 months at 80p saving and 9 months at 1.30p saving =£14.10.

BT haven't even got the decency to treat their customers with respect and declare the true savings. It is not £24.60 less a year at all.

Bit annoyed they give so little, for sitting on your money, and locking us into their service. No doubt this means that you have to stay with them for the whole 12 months, whilst there are already other providers who are cheaper, and there may be even better deals going before the 12 months is up

looks like it's worth 10% interest rather than the 2.5% i'm getting

it is basically a good deal for people who can afford to pay for the full year,however people only able to pay monthly will be well overcharged, the price of line rental is scandalous anyway.

Line Rental Saver. Offer ends 29.10.10. Available to BT Calling Plan customers paying £113.88 for 12 months in advance by debit/credit card – equivalent to £9.49 a month (full price £131.88). Any additional charges to be paid by Direct Debit with e-billing. At least two chargeable or inclusive calls must be made per month to avoid monthly charge of £1.50 being added to your bill. Advance payment is non-refundable. Exclusions and conditions apply.

productsandservices.bt.com/con…390

Standard Line Rental. Currently £11.54 a month with Direct Debit and paper-free billing. Otherwise add £2.75 a month (£1.50 payment processing fee levied by BT Payment Services Limited, a BT Group company, plus £1.25 without paper-free billing discount). Discount appears as a bill credit. Set-up paper-free billing online at bt.com/pap…ree

From 1st October 2010, standard monthly line rental will increase by 50p (excludes Line Rental Saver); UK Daytime call rates will increase by 0.5ppm; The Call set-up fee will increase by 1p per call and Call Return features (1471#3 & 1571#0) will increase by 4.2p per use. Prices include VAT at 17.5%.

Current monthly rental = £12.79 less online billing discount £1.25 = effective £11.54 pm

New line rental saver = £9.49 pm so saving = £2.05 per month = £24.60 per year?

You'll save an additional 50p per month when the rental goes up in October plus when VAT increases in 2011 you'll be saving 24p per month until the end of the contract because you've pre-paid?

plus Tesco club card points on my credit card, I'm tempted, just got to remember to make 2 calls a month. Along with remembering to use all my mobile phones occasionally to stop them being nobbled, going to need a huge calender.

When making a chargeable call, a 9.9p call set up fee applies.

UK* landline evening calls 1.5p/min & daytime calls 5.9p/min (9.9p set up fee applies)
so a charge of say 23p a month or a penalty

The people who managed to get the £36 discount on this year's rental are still better off and I for one will try my dammest to get the same next year.

I've had it confirmed that the the "chargeable" calls can come out of your inclusive bundle - i.e. your free evening and weekend calls

confirmed in writing/ readable somewhere ( had a pack of fibs told to me by sales in the past)

I rang BT in march and told them i could get my phone from o2 for £9 per month and they bettered it by 50p per month.
Always worth a try

From October, its £12.04 - £9.49 = £30.60 per year saving. The £1.25 per month paper free billing discount is irrelevant as the charge is £9.49. They dont add £1.25 back on lol

cant see how anyone can vote this cold or please feel free to show where its cheaper elsewhere for BT customers/..........

£9.49 a month equivalent, when you pay 12 months in one advance card payment of £113.88 (Line Rental Saver)

fair enough although primus reserve the right to increase that price at any time.

any chance to cancel the 12months contract because of this Oct price increase?

Don't think so but I did read that canx charges were being capped at £2 per month outstanding on contract. Also apparently even if already in 12 month contract period can still switch to this tariff according to MSE.

My line rental is currently reduced in some way by £3 pm and I get free evening as well as weekend calls - not sure what will happen if I switch to this new tariff.
