Found 2nd Mar 2015Made hot 4th Mar 2015
Get 30% off the airtime of any o2 refresh tariff. There are over 2000 organisations which are included in o2 open, the major ones being Nus and NHS staff, so it is well worth popping in to an o2 store and asking if your employer is part of this scheme. I managed to save over £9 a month on my 20gb tarriff! (£214 over 2 years!) The offer may have been posted before but as I am new on ukhd I thought I would share.
If you have set up a contract direct from an o2 shop in the last month visit o2open.co.uk to see if you can get an open code.
note the discount can be applied for new or upgrading customers and the contact must be set up in an o2 store. Not available on contracts set up at 3rd party companies (carphone warehouse) or online.
Once you have received a code, this can be shared between another 5 friends and family members!

this offer roughly speaking saves around 15% off you're monthly bill,
in terms of my contract:
with out discount £53(£20 phone plan, £33 airtime)
with discount: £43.10 (£20 phone plan, £23.10 airtime)

I was made aware of this when I visited the o2 store in Hull enquiring about a new iPhone on contract, they enquired who I worked for, and it turns out my partners employer John Lewis are included. Even though she is not with o2 I could still get the discount! Saved £6 a month on my z3! Can't complain. Just glad they enquired! Always ask if you go in about this discount!

nice, my contract is up for renewal soon. may enquire

I did this all online. I put my organisation down as the NHS.

You don't have to go in store anymore to set it up, nor to show any ID to prove who you work for.

(P.s, I don't work for the NHS).

When you compare deals on 3rd party suppliers (like mobiles.co.uk, etc...) you can get a much better deal than going directly to O2 even with 30% off the tariff.

Don't think you can apply o2 open codes to tarriffs unless taken out directly with O2.

Same for their refresh plans.

Easily yes, I did the same comparisons back in November and was much cheaper everywhere else.

Still a good deal for those who want a refresh deal

Does anyone know if Nationwide Building Society is on the list??

So lemme get this straight, you can put NHS and they don't validate you?
Got to validate you somehow!

I put NHS down for myself, and I entered "student" for my other half when she got hers.

Neither were checked (I presume, because both of those are lies), the entire process is seemingly done online now.

The guy in my local O2 shop said they will give this 30% discount to anyone in order to get the deal.
They just put down NHS or NUS on the order, with NO validation. mmmm.... I like equality...

You also get 20% off Vodafone too, which is slightly better since O2's 30% is only off the Line Rental, not the monthly price of the phone. Which is confusing.

I don't see why working/studying for a particular organisation should entitle people to pay less than their community peers! Why shouldn't the unemployed or pensioners get a discount??? What a society we live in!

I guess it's one of the perks you would get for working for those companies. At my work, they've negotiated preferential discounted rates with a HUGE range of suppliers, but I've never bought anything through that before as I can always find better deals online myself.

Check on Carphone Warehouse first to see if they are cheaper, they were for me even with student discount!

They did with me, sent a verification e-mail to my work address (also it seems for some companies they already have a list of e-mail addresses of people working at the organisation).

Yeah, that's not how it's done. It only looks for the domain name in the email address, not the full email. They don't have a list of everyone's emails, that would be insane.
