This deal will probably go cold but for me it is a pretty sweet deal if you include the extras, are with BT and want a 64GB SE. In additional to the half price this includes a £100 Amazon or iTunes Voucher and there is £60 cash back on topcashback.

My wife wanted and SE for a while and only worth having the 64GB version. There is a similar deal with less data too but this again is less appealing for most whereas 3GB is decent. Don't forget I think you also get BT Sport 1 and BT WiFi hotspot included for the whole 24months.

To make matters less confusing it works out at about £7.20 a month for 1000 minutes, unlimited texts and 3GB data if you include the extras and take off the handset cost at £399.

I wonder why this is cold? With no comments as to why?
I don't know much about iPhone contracts but this seems - with the £100 voucher pretty good. Unless I am missing something? Vg

1) it's an Apple deal so even if it's cheap people compare it to android
2) some people want just the cheapest deal but don't look at the hidden costs. Of course phone companies often do deals on 500mb or 1GB deals as they know full well over a 24 month contract you'll probably go over your data at some point and they'll charge you through the nose

3) some people hate amazon and BT too

If you get both the Voucher and the Cashback then it's a fair deal but the problem is that there is no guarantee, I've had 2 sim only plans on BT (existing BT customer) and both Quidco referrals were declined and the second I believed was entitled to a £50 voucher, which I also did not get.

I am currently wanting this exact phone, I was thinking of moving to EE to get a good deal but I am now looking at buying it outright from John Lewis £429 (2 year guarantee) and keeping the BT sim only 3GB plan which is only £8 a month to BT customers, makes a total of £621 over 24 months, even though doing it this way you are not locked into 24 months.

Fair enough. Firstly you have to claim the voucher. I had to do the same when had my first contract with BT SIM only about 2 years ago. Secondly I too had an issue with Quidco not tracking. Contacted quidco and it took a bit of time but got my full cashback. Think these problems are largely sorted now as that was on launch of BT and now site etc is settled. I've already had confirmation from TopCashback of tracking.

BT notoriously decline vouchers and cash back, that's why it's cold.

I claimed the voucher via vouchers.bt.com/off…im/ I received an email but never received the voucher so I contacted BT to be told I was not entitled as I was an existing BT Mobile Customer. Quidco tracked the purchases just fine, but it was declined for the same reason. I spoke to BT last Wednesday about this actual offer and I was told that I could neither have the voucher or the introductory 6 months half price as I am an existing customer, they did though reduced my BT infinity by £6 a month so not a totally wasted call.

Some people consider the value of the deal compared to other alternatives instead of just voting on whether it's a good price for the specific product listed. I think it's valid and to compare phones to other phones though suspect there may be a bit of reverse snobbery involved for some when voting down an iphone deal. Having said that, Apple is obviously very successful at creating premium product. It doesn't do cheap but competes by creating less tangible brand value. I know a guy who would never consider anything but apple everything because of the prestige. The high price is direct proxy for the quality. i think HUKD tends to be an antidote to this kind of thinking and without being to compare other products there is not way to acertain the real value of a product in any given market place. i phones are good, but they rarely tend to be good value. If you'll excuse me now, i need to go and get a life

Guess peoples experiences with TCB and BT vary, but how much of it is down to not following process?

​I have recently taken out Fibre Broadband with BT and four separate SIM deals through TCB and have received 5 Amazon gift cards for the correct amount. Cashback for fibre tracked and was paid quickly. That for the SIMs tracked at slightly less than the advertised amount; I raised a support ticket and anticipate payment soon. The combined cashback and TCB pretty much matches the annual cost of the plans I chose, so I am more than happy. This reflects my experience with TalkTalk, Nationwide bank and other firms.

The trick with anything like this is to read and take copies of relevant webpages and obsessively comply with instructions and T&C, and you MUST learn how to use TCB correctly, and of course Quidco if used. Time spent on this is well spent.

Telecommunications companies fear complaints as much as banks and insurance firms; if you don't get your vouchers or cashback write in with a COMPLAINT (entitle your letter that) and state clearly what you want, how you have complied with their processes and availability of documented evidence. For cashback you need to raise a ticket with TCB / Quidco first...;)

Well I am pretty happy that as I am with BT and assuming I claim voucher (easy to do) and get cashback that if you take off cost of the handset it works out about £7.20 a month for 100 minutes unlimited texts and 3GB data (plus BT WiFi and BT Sport 1 via app if don't have that with BT already) I spend a lot of money with Amazon so £100 voucher with them as good as cash for me! This deal isn't for everyone but I think often people can't work out the details but also as someone who used to sell phones there are always better deals on lower data tariffs as companies rely on users to go over that!
