Hi all,

This is my first deal so please be gently. I know there are a few BT deals out there at the moment but they have missed out the cashback.

By going through quidco you can get £160 cashback 'for new customer Infinity Broadband, Calls & TV'. But from comments below sometimes they do not honour the cash back which sucks.

On top of this you can get £200 Prepaid mastercard which you can use pretty much anywhere.

Quidco should track on it's website it does say upto £220 cashback plus up to £200 Reward Card. I can't imagine the cashback wouldn't be successful because of this.

The deadline is 11:59PM 21/03/17 so be quick. I will be getting it when I get home.

BREAKDOWN:

Unlimited Infinity 1 (up to 52mb) £10.00

Monthly line rental £18.99

TV Starter £0.00

AMC FREE

Total monthly £28.99

Total for 12 months £347.88

TV activation fee £10.00

Activation + P&P £59.99

Total one off £69.99

Total for 12 months £417.87

Prepaid Reward card (£200.00)

Quidco (£160.00)

Total over 12 months £57.87

Monthly cost £4.83

If you don't get cashback then it works out:

Total: £217.87
Monthly £18.16

Also potentially if you pay the phone line rental saver I believe you dave £1.70 extra a month. This is an absolute bargain. But you will have to deal with BT.

Having the TV adds £10 onto your one off bill and that is it. If you do not get the TV then the Cashback is £100 so you get £50 less (£60-£10).

Seems like an outstanding deal.

Sorry not too knowledgeable about cash back but if you meet the terms and conditions of the offer then surely they can't deny you cash back?

It does say on quidco that you can get both the reward card and the cash back.

They can deny and they will! Speaking from experience

I didn't have any problems with Quidco when I switched fibre to BT last year, got my cashback and a reward card.

Although no cashback is guaranteed, I have switched both myself and some friends over half a dozen times with BT and have NEVER had a problem getting the prepaid mastercard AND the cashback.

Would you like to fight my claim for me then for the £215 they owe me through a valid cashback deal similar to this ?
I took up an offer similar to this paying even higher cashback which made it look great , 4 months later after paying line rental upfront for the year and having now paid 4 monthly payments (on time and by direct debit) and my claim is 'Rejected'
The Reason ............ 'None Given' ...... and that's it , gone !!!

Good luck dealing with this fraudulent outfit

Voted hot, good deal.. the reason I suspect this is getting cold voted is because you included the cashback in the price. HUKD says that deals cannot include cashback in the quoted price IIRC. So take out the price of cachback as it's not guaranteed, but leave the info for cashback in the deal information, so say something like "if cashback tracks and gets honoured" IMO.

My cashback tracked when I switched to BT a few months back via TCB, got £121 cashback and £125 reward card from BT, plus £30 Amazon card for getting mobile phone £5 deal for unlimited mins/500MB data and unlimited texts. So this deal is a brilliant one and don't understand the cold votes at all, this site is so finicky. If the deal has already been posted, then this deal should be spammed not voted cold.. and IIRC if the deal price has changed even by just 1 pound, not including cashback obviously, then this deal CAN be posted legitamtely, so if the reward card price has changed or anything that does not include cashback basically.

My cold vote was because my cashback was declined for no valid reason , what is there not to understand ?

If your £121 cashback was declined for no reason , would you have posted how excellent your deal was on this thread ? I'm guessing you wouldn't have been so forthcoming but then it worked out well for you and you got a great deal , no question about that

To offer incentives of cashback to entice customers into a contract , then subsequently not paying out , in my view is deception.

I voted cold , and will continue to do so on every BT deal which involves cashback incentives to make a deal look good , based on my experience , after all that is what this site is about isn't it ? We can't have all the comments from people who got lucky and none from those that didn't. If I can convince 1 person to give them a wide berth then I will be happy.
Prior to my cashback rejection I recommended my parents to BT and they got both the cashback and the reward card so I had no problems recommending BT back then.
When you have been ripped off to the tune of £215 , its funny how ones opinion can change. I hate dishonesty and deception and I wouldn't say that is being 'finicky' either.

I understand cashback is not guaranteed but people make a judgement based on the cashback incentives offered and factor this into their calculations as they are confident that they will follow the deal terms to the letter and are experienced enough using the cashback websites.
In this day and age and with consumer protection at probably the highest it has ever been, we naturally assume that if a deal is laid out in black and white and we sign up for it , meeting all the terms and conditions , then we would be entitled to that advertised 'offer'.
Unfortunately , with cashback sites this is not the case.
Admittedly , most will track and my own success rate has been close to 92 % across both Quidco and TCB with total payments of around £8500 between them , BT however was one of the companies that made up the 8% , along with some betting / casino cashbacks forming the bulk part !

I can understand your point, but it's not BT that's offering the cashback, it's the cashback company ie TCB/quidco. As you said yourself you have had many cashback deals track and payout. So with this one occassion either BT or the cashback company messed up, but it's not the OPs fault is it? and surely the possibility of cashback is better than not bothering right? so unless you know another deal for another ISP that would give you a £200 reward card/POSSIBLE cashback and still only be £28.99 a month, then this is the better deal right?
I've had cashback declined from a few places like greenflag etc, but I normally only go with deals that the cashback is EXTRA to the deal, so factoring in the cashback possibly paying out compared to one that doesn't have cashback at all or whatever. So then of the cashback tracks and pays out it's a bonus to the deal that was good anyway... I for instance wouldn't bother going for a deal that was £70 a month, but might give you £500 cashback as you'd still be paying just slightly less than £29 a month if the cashback pays out. I instead look for deals in my price range that I can comfortably pay even if the cashback doesn't pay out.

Screenshots of what please?

Thanks for the advice I have taken the cashback out the title and added a calculated without cash back in the description. Still a very good deal. Wish cash back was reliable.

Spyware, cookies from other referral sites (Like this place) can hijack the tracking process.

Again, never had an issue with many a signup/claim.

First of all , this wasn't a tracking issue , it was a valid claim that initially tracked , stayed pending for 4 months, then subsequently declined by merchant !

Always clear cookies before purchasing so nope , wasn't that.

Spyware , nope , constantly checked and another transaction done the same day and others days apart paid out just fine.

Total of £8500 in cashback so far between Quidco and TCB so with respect , I am not a newbie

The cashback initially tracked fine and remained pending for almost 4 months. Then I am informed by TCB that the merchant declined my cashback claim , now I am presuming that the merchant they are referring to is BT , no ?
If BT were not offering this cashback (either directly or indirectly) then why would they be making a decision to accept or decline my claim in the first place ?

This is very much a new customer incentive offered by BT and pedalled through Topcashback/Quidco and to decline claims then hide behind a cashback company as a screen to facilitate their deception is nothing short of scandalous to be fair.
Although you may think this practice is acceptable providing that you get a good 'deal' without the cashback , I certainly do not.

My cold vote will apply to every BT deal that involves a cashback incentive as I feel that if this is a genuine incentive and customers follow the signup to the letter and have a valid claim then they ALL should be paid and honour the cashback they had advertised , otherwise they have obtained a contract by deception, which I am pretty sure is highly illegal.
I appreciate what your saying about the price without the cashback and whilst I most definitely agree that there probably isn't a cheaper/better deal out there for me it is not all about the price one pays , imo other variables need to be taken into account too and dealing with a corrupt fraudulent company who acts in this way , for me anyway , dictates that this needs to be voted cold.
I'm not asking you to agree or disagree and I respect whatever your views on it are.
All I ask is for you to show the same respect to others who don't share you view , I wasn't being finicky with my vote and believe I have taken enough time out to explain my reasoning behind my cold vote.
Like I say I don't need you to agree with my view , just accept that it differs from yours in the same way I accept that your views differ from mine when voting on HUKD

Ps. I never stated that this is the OPs fault btw.

The steps we are prepared to go to to protect ourselves from fraudulent companies such as BT .... another reason for voting cold right there

The headline costing in this deal is great for what you get and I would not be surprised if this was by far the best deal out there right now in terms of price.
You have to ask yourself then , Why has this gotten so cold ?? I only voted cold once I can assure you and temp didn't drop by more than a couple of degrees !
The reason behind the cold votes isn't because this is available elsewhere any cheaper , its because you would be dealing with BT who have a long hostory when it comes to cheating their customers , offering poor quality indian call centres to 'resolve' any issues , overcharging on your monthly bills (This is an ongoing job you need to do every month so make a note in your diaries allow some time for this as their bills can be quite confusing) and randomly cheating you out of cashback / incentive deals that you were entitled to

​didnt answer the question tho..... (_;)

Moved to BT after 7 years with TalkTalk - immediately had issues with the router they sent out, overseas call centre did not understand issue and admitted they're only able to assist with basically restarting routers, struggled to speak with someone in UK complaints who also didn't understand and passed be through to technical team who cut me off, another struggle to get back to UK complaints team who repeated putting me through to technical team and told me once resolved we could look at compensation...still waiting for compensation and complaints to get back after two months!

My point is , you shouldn't need it .

If common sense is applied , screenshots taken from any advertisement on their site showing the offer prior to you signing up will suffice.
Keep them safe in a folder for when you need to supply the crooks with your 'evidence' , good luck

Anyone know hot BT sport works?
It says free until July, do you then suddenly get charged for it.
The web page says free to broadband customer so a bit confused.

Just a quick thanks to the OP! Got the £200 MasterCard a few weeks ago and yesterday Quidco paid out the £160, happy days!

Still waiting on TCB. But my connection was late April.

Funnily enough. TCB just gone to confirmed today.
