Free Nest Protect worth £89 with every new John Lewis home insurance policy plus poss 20% off plus quidco cashback

This is my first post so please be gentle but I just thought this was a great deal.

So it was time for the yearly compare for my dad's home insurance as his current policy renewal had been bumped up by £15.

I went through quidco and noticed John Lewis was offering cashback for different policies.

I also realised they were also offering a free Nest Protect worth £89 for every new policy taken before 17th November plus 20% off

So my dad just took out the basic essentials home and contents policy (no added extras) which came to £96 so we ended up with £30 cashback and a free £89 Nest Protect. So hypothetically we've got the policy and earned about £20!

So although I've posted the direct link to John Lewis home insurance you will need to go through quidco first to get the cashback

Nest Protect Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm
Nest Protect Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm

The Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm speaks in a human voice and alerts your phone if something’s wrong. And if you just burned the toast, you can easily silence it from your phone.

Thanks for this, just ordered. If it helps you can choose contents and/or buildings insurance and still qualify for the Nest Protect. You can also choose between the wired and battery models. Delivery within 60 days. Fingers crossed Quidco tracks

I've already had the email saying the cashback has tracked so all being well for you too

yep cashback just tracked at £30 for a contents only policy which would have cost £96 if I hadn't upgraded certain bits. this is a bit of a bargain if you're in the market for a smart fire alarm!

Great if it works for you but the quote i got was 4 times what i am currently paying so think i will pass.

Thanks OP, will see if I qualify. I'm typing from my mobile - could I get a link to the terms and conditions of the offer?

I wonder whether it is worth getting an extra policy at lowest price just to get this.

I know there are different options with essentials being the lowest price. With the premier cover you get £80 so plus your free nest.

​I was thinking the same thing, minimum values on what the policy covers so the cost is minimal.

when is the 20% off taken?

it says it on the Google page when you search John Lewis home insurance and also towards the end just before you buy

Nice little deal find, was considering purchasing one of these so to get one for 'free' is a bonus.

Any idea if it's the battery, wired version or do you get a choice?

I only just bought a new home insurance policy and am still within the 14 days fee-free cancellation period, so I was all set to cancel that one and get this John Lewis one, a nest protect to go with my nest thermostat!

But then I did a quote and even the basic policy, with no home emergency cover and no legal cost £60 more than the L&G policy I got which DOES! The John Lewis policy that does have those protections is a full £300 more than the L&G one.

Not worth it for me.

It seems you ARE paying for the Nest protect in your premiums. Nothing is ever free...

Really???? Of course you are otherwise the company would go bust!

The Nest Protect are excellent by the way.

I bought this policy (with the Nest) a month ago - missed the Quidco deal :-( The policy (for buildings and contents) was £110 cheaper, with better cover, than my renewal from Tesco, (Tesco renewal was £100 up from last year WITHOUT a claim). Phoned Tesco to cancel and the guy asked why I was cancelling (not happy with price) and what was my best price? Told him and he just said "Can't even attempt to beat that mate. I won't even try. Sorry to lose you though" (Nice to get an honest person on the phone for a change). Still waiting on Nest delivery but have had confirmation email of delivery. Heat added OP.

wonderful just got mine and cashbook, good post, very happy

Are you all getting an instant quote that you can purchase there and then?
I have completed the forms twice and each time I require a call back...

not sure i understand the quidco cashback amounts.
£15 for Plus Cover Contents Insurance
£20 for Plus Cover Contents Insurance

or
£15 for Plus Cover Buildings & Contents Insurance

seems like you're getting seriously gypped on the cashback amount

The Nest Protect is for SPECIALIST Home Insurance, i.e. for a buy-to-let, holiday home, or something other than your main residence. I don't think you will get the Nest for your main residence.

That is not how I understand it from the website . It says with every policy . What made you think that ?

Did you get a choice between the mains and battery nest devices?

Chiptivo

Did you get a choice between the mains and battery nest devices?



Yep

Tried JL was 3 times the price of my quote from compare the market can buy a few nest protect.
So just be careful and get other quotes

Hi there, my dad took out the essentials policy and still received the nest protect. And yes you do get a choice between battery and wired

Cheers op,I just took this policy out,£74 vhraper than my renewal , Quidco has tracked at £40 for buildings and contents and I've just completed the online form and had email confirmation for the nest.....it's a no brainer

​Lol, yes it is! Just completed my quote and the form mentioned it's 2nd gen.


Cheers OP.

With the free Nest and cashback, I'll only be paying £25 for a year's contents insurance! Well happy! Thanks

I just hope it's the 2nd gen hardware... … I just hope it's the 2nd gen hardware... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpsMkLaEiOY



​First part of my comment above was a reply to yours, but it didn't add your comment on for some reason!

my home insurance isn't due till next year. Can I get this early (renew for 2017) OR have two policies running at same time if price works out?

Tesco have had some change in how they do policies, I know quite a few people that had biig hikes from them or just had their policies all out cancelled for either home or vehicle. Honestly they sound like they are getting out of the market with the prices and conditions they are doing now.

Just reduced my insurance by £10 per month , Quidco + another Nest, Happy Days

Great deal, heat added.

Thank you - went through Compare the Market so also got the 2-4-1 cinema tickets for 12months + the alarm + they were substantially cheaper than my renewal quote - just hope they are good in the event of a claim!

Sorry I misread the Quidco blurb. You are correct.

how long did the quidco track take for people? Mine seems to have not tracked

Top cash back tracked ,£46 within about 20 minutes.

I could not find anything that said you had to have it running before Nov 17th, only the payment to qualify for the Nest. It's probably not worth having two policies running concurrently. It would look suspicious in the event of a claim.

This is incorrect, The NEST protect is available for new customers taking out either the Essential, Plus or Premier levels of cover & is also available for the Specialist home insurance cover.
