Nokia 3310 at Giffgaff - £39 (+£45 TCB or £25 Quidco)

Found 27th Feb
Hi,
I think this is my first deal or it has been so long since the last one it feels like my first time.

Nokia 3310 3g at Giffgaff is £29 plus a £10 goodybag top up so £39 total.

But wait

TCB do £45 cashback (£6 profit)

or Quidco do £25, but Quidco have the cashback guarantee so arguably if the odds are in your favour you could end up with £65 off a £39 purchase.

Could you get the moto c for £59, with free moto pulse headphones? Getting £45 cashback in the process, then flog both phone and headphones for a small but managable profit?

I looked at this too and I can’t quite break even before the cash back
£30-50 for the phone on ebay, and £15-£20 for headphones.
You've essentially paid £15 for them, so you could make a tidy profit of £30-£50?

You could, but only if the cash back comes in. It’s not 101% guaranteed you see

I'm not doing it but if it worked, it wouldn't be a bad five minutes work.
If you were really sneaky you could use a new quidco account and refer yourself as a friend too.

Done that many times
Not sure why this isn't getting more heat!
Because some of us aren't immoral scalping fraudsters

£65 cashback off a £39 purchase?

What is fraudulent about that?
Sorry if I've missed something, but how does the £65 off work when quidco only do £25?
Quidco info is: SIM Activation Bonus On New Handset Purchases:Your transaction may initially track lower before being uplifted once validated. Please note there will be at least a 30 day wait for Activation Bonus cashback


Any idea if activating and immediately cancelling the recurrence of gifgaf goodybag would still qualify for the cashback?


Thanks


Nice deal btw!

Cashback guarantee, they would match tcb and add the difference on top?
Is quidco down for anybody else right now ?
Thanks OP and Mrswitch have took a punt on the Motorola c for my dad

Blimey order has been dispatched already for delivery tomorrow, talk about quick lol.
Has anyone else tried to Quidco 'Highest Cashback Guarantee' ?

I've put 3 things through all of which were blatantly being offered by Quidco for less than TCB only for them to be rejected.

I would like to know this too
Just ordered through tcb. Nice today profit if it works.
As soon as I get my sim I'll register it, and then do the moto c deal, if its still available at the time
3310 3g showing at £29 on their site? TCB says £5 will show initially and then the balance after 30 days!
When you go into the site it says you must activate a sim to get the £45 or as below I have copied from their site
"If you don't have an active giffgaff SIM you’ll need to buy a minimum £10 goodybag with this phone. You can cancel your goodybag anytime"

Does the "Goody bag" include a sim you have to activate? Do you have to keep a contract going and do you have to buy a top-up to validate claim?

Well from what you've said above, you simply have to activate the sim for the cashback to be paid.
In my position I need a sim anyway, so will use this for a month, then change networks again, obviously sell the handset on as its unlocked anyway
Just tried it with the Moto C - perfect for my mum
could you buy the nokia through tcb and the Moto through quidcos deal and price match then sell both phones and headphones?

The Nokia arrived today, the cashback has now tracked on Quidco and the cashback guarantee claim will be made when I get home tonight.
Will update
is there anything that can be done with the ten pound credit on the gif gaff sim?, I don't really have a need for the good bag.
Tcb say £5 only
Too good to be true

Will be interested in buying this for a backup phone. Especially if the £25 quidco cashback is guaranteed
Check the terms and conditions on quidco guarantee. Giffgaff are under the telecoms category. Telecoms does not qualify for the double the difference guarantee

Cashback of £45.45 has been confirmed as payable for this, so thanks op, what a great deal this was, I sold it for £38 as well, and did the moto c deal with the headphones as well, and that has confirmed too.

Cheers, well worth the work
Ordered Sunday morning, arrived Monday pm. TCB tracked ar £5 but only just activated SIM & it says allow a few days... Thanks op, just what needed for my father-in-law
