Possible 100 Quidco or 90 TCB back if it tracks
In a rush so forgive my maths if it's not spot on..
29.99 a month for twelve months +34.99 connection minus 150 reward card and 100 quidco (if it tracks) = 12.07 a month

The maths works out to 34.99 for 12 months = 419.88 + 25 (activation fees) = 444.88 - 150 (BT Reward Card) - 100 (Quidco if it pays out) = 194.88/12 = 16.24 PM

Quidco cashback increased to £110

And then BT do what they always do, price hike midway through. Good deal though, but I've had a skethcy connection with BT (non fibre)
I've had BT cashback paid out before but buy it on the presumption that it won't get paid. Just in case.

When I placed my order my cashback didnt track and even after filing a claim with Quidco, BT still declined the cashback & im still arguing with them about it...so defintely see it as something you may or may not get

I had three reject £150 through quidco . Quidco refused to respond with anything other than generic tracking rubbish..
Ive never had a large amount untracked using topcashback but no doubt there will be some horror stories there...
V good deal . Heat added. But the worst customer service. Dreadful company to communicate with.
Yes I agree. Having had cash back previously declined albeit I was subsequently able to successfully appeal, the lesson I've leant is to consider Cash back as a bonus. If it pays out great and if not, well unlucky but never let the prospect of the cash back determine which item to buy over another.
I use Top Cash Back instead of Quidco. Found them more reliable in tracking. I got a package from BT last year. They gave me a £150 pre-loaded cashcard and I received £106.05 cashback via Top Cash Back. I also paid my 12 month's line rental upfront and saved a bit more. Very happy with paying next to nothing net and I get a constant 52MB connection. dreading when my 12 month's are up and i have to move to an inferior provider. Hope this helps someone.
i'M SPENDING MY £150 as we speak (non-fibre) ... isn't it that quidco and trashback disallow other "cashback" schemes so its eitherBT cashback or QC/CB ??

On some of the deals you are able to get both the reward card and the cash back.
I have never had a problem with getting Cashback myself with BT. I got it three times over the last 3-4 years. I got £212 cashback last year (£70 extra with Quidco matching TCB). I was only meant to get the £100 reward card but when I activated it I got £150.

Wow seems like you had a free line then
It's certainly possible to get Quidco and the card (although like others have said the Quidco can sometimes fail for whatever reason).

In example the last time this deal was on I got the £200 prepay card and £160 Quidco thus around £3.99 per month equivalent.

What you just endure is that you do not have any contact with BT through the order process. Any contact could lead to game over as far as any cash back is concerned. Order must be fully online.
I just signed up yesterday at £34.99 pm and only £85 reward card! Why do they pull stunts like this, I wouldn't feel so bad if it had at least been a few weeks between offers.

How long back was this - I am just wondering if I should bide some more time to take the offer at this price?

Cancel and resign then.

Would it still work?
I was on the verge of going with BT but ended up staying with Sky for around £24 pm...far too many horror stories with BT...poor service, declined cashback, messing up connection leaving you without internet etc. BT used to stand for something, now they're just a feckin' joke!

What did they offer you for that price? I am with sky too and weighing my options - coz right now I am paying 18.99 for a very slow Broadband and can do with some fiber fun
Made £200 of BT reward card and £80 TCB. last month.

Shame the service is s@it lol not wonder they offer some much for you to sign up haha

Can fail with pop up or ad blockers...
As for service, log a ticket with India, go through script and use info to ping an email to the Chief Exec. Dont let them close the complaint until satisfied.

How do you get the cashback on renewals?

Yes it worked out pretty well for the year

How do you get the cashback on renewals?



One was for myself. One was on my mums BT when she got it in & the third was in my Fiancees name. We where moving house and it just worked out a lot better if I cancelled my contract and she ordered one in her name for the new place. Even with the small cancellation fee (two months left) and a activation fee for the new place, it was a far better deal.

A bit risky as you both have the same last name. Make sure you use a different bank card and email address but be prepared if it doesn't work. I'm thinking of doing it myself but we aren't married yet so we have different last names but it depends what they offer first. They will still charge you a fee to cancel it around £30 + even if you are out of contract (I know, crazy right), plus charge you £35 to reconnect it.

Ring them up first and see what kind of deal they can offer you first.

Maybe I could transfer to sky saving the cancellation fee, then cancel sky within cooling off period and then sign up for BT as a new customer. It might sound like faff but I've just come to the end of 12M on BT fibre with bt tv and 2 x 2GB sims and all together it has worked out under £10 per month so if I can get similar again it's worth it.

Same here but i opted for quarterly cash and cheque! Much better seeing what you got before you pay! Any discrepancies and i will dispute it first. But cracking deal worked out about £18 a month i renewed about 6 months in to stop the price rise too!

I actually like the service. Speed can vary but tends to go down a lot after midnignt maybe maintanence or something. Love the bt wifi app lots of personal hotspots around to log onto.

Bt sport free for six months too but £5 a month much cheaper than sky and if i Want sky sports i use nowtv and just get a days pass to watch a match i want

P.s Thats true can i sign in my wifes name to get the card and cashback when contract runs out? Why should existing customers get shafted fir new customers only. Or does the name give it away?

obviously depends on line speed but how does infinity compare sky fibre in terms of speed?
Quite happy with sky fibre u/l but just jumped from £29.59 p/m to 46.99 p/m
Cheers
Tried to get this deal, but you get to the point where you enter your date of birth and how long you've lived at the address section and click 'continue' to get to next page, then it goes to 'there has been a technical error' and you cannot go any further. Tried yesterday and today. Anyone else had this?
Just ordered thanks! £90 TCB also says pending!

True but by the time you order BT again the cashback/card may be a lot lower or it could be more. When you cancel with Sky will you get charged a fee or not? Might as well see what BT offer you first. Might be the same price you are paying at the minute but of course without the cashback & all.

What minimum speed to they say you would get when you signed up, if you should be getting more then get in touch with them.

They've messed mine up, getting 73mb on my infinity 1 package.

Its funny but when I was ordering just over a month ago everyone in the BT deal thread was saying use Quidco instead because its much more reliable (even though the payout was lower). Glad I ignored them, I generally find TopCashback more reliable and have had no problems on this occasion either. Though I did have to chase BT for the reward card...
Do BT still do line rental saver?

What if I've already made contact with BT re cashback...? Should I cancel and re order?
So yeah, actually considered this for a minute, line checker says 35-50Mbps (not bad) with a min guaranteed speed of 0Kbps... oO (it was 32Mbps when I last tried a few months ago for reference)
So webchat... rep seeing same thing on their side, agrees not gonna get many signups if it shows that, and then says infinity/fttc isn't usually even offered on a postcode/line check if it can't provide at least 13Mbps or something... says call this number....

Me: Call number and explain above again, as I'd like to be a new customer but not risking signing up with no get out of jail free speed promise etc.....
Call Centre: "You're not happy with the speed you're getting sir?"
Me: I'm not even a customer yet as I just explained, I was told to phone this number to ask you to check my guaranteed min speed if I get a new line...
Call centre: "What number are you calling about?"
Me: I don't have a number yet...
Call centre: "What is the first name on the account please?"
Me: Are you listening... I don't have an account, I dont have a BT phone line, I'm considering... oh **** this *hangs up*

Shyeah.... not risking that.

Mine says
53Mb-71Mb
Estimated download speed* range
47Mb
Minimum speed guarantee*
I successfully went through Quidco, also got a tracking email almost immediately after.

What made me laugh was that they were only able to guarantee me "0mb" speed lol! I guess I will really have to test once its live and cancel if its not up to scratch.

Another thing - the earliest activation date I was given was 8th August! Granted this is for a new house I'm moving into, where it looks like the previous owner disconnected their landline and internet for some time now. Not even sure if they have an OpenReach modem somewhere... couldn't find it...
