Get 22p extra per £10 top up from 01/12 on O2 pay as you go

O2 are adding 22p to top ups from 01/12 due to the reduction in VAT. when you top up from 1 min past midnight on 01/12 you will get 22p added automatically to your credit. this doesnt matter which method of top up you use. Also the price of new phones are going to be reducing to include the reduction in VAT, so anyone considering purchasing a phone or topping up i advise to wait until Monday.

Dunno why so cold? sounds better than a kick in the teeth...

voting on hot deals here, n this isnt even the measly 2.5% off that vat is. Is a bit of a grouchy thing to say I know but at the end of the day this is a 'hot deals' website, not an announcement website, 2.2% extra doesn't garner a post here imo.

ok sorry, i got this info during a special breifing 3hrs ago, to tell staff how o2 are passing the decrease in VAT to customers. As far as i know that info isnt available anywhere else at the moment. If that info like this isnt appreciated here i wont bother posting anymore.
Thanks to those who have voted hot.
the VAT that o2 pay when a customer tops up £10 is £1.49, so the actual top up is for £8.51 and 17.5% tax is £1.49. so the 15% tax on £8.51 top up is £1.28 so the difference is 22p. it wouldnt be practical for O2 to make a £9.78 top up. Hence why they are putting an extra 22p on top ups.
not rocket science is it?
