O2 SIMO Deal - 1000 mins/1GB 4G Data/Unlimited Texts (12m) = £5.49/month via redemption & £20 Quidco This Week (£65.88 after redemption) @ Mobiles.co.uk

Found 11th Mar 2015
I've just gone for two of these for my wife and I. This week Quidco have £20 cashback on SIMO deals too making the effective cost £3.83 a month. Great deal IMO if the allowances suit, which they do for us.

Cashback is via redemption but I've been using these guys for 10 years or so with no issues. Cashback claims can be made online and they make it clear which bills need to be sent in. Mobiles.co.uk are also part of CPW so there's a tiny chance they go belly up.

I don't work for, or am affiliated by them but I've always had good deals and good service from them.

The same deal is probably available on e2Save (also CPW) if you prefer them.

EDIT: When the SIM arrives it's full-size but has perforations so you can pop-out a Micro SIM if required.

Also the cashback on the site is wrong, but I have confirmed on my online account with them that it's 5 cashback payments of £25.40.

You can send the bills online, you don't need to post them!

Total Cost = £192

I do not get exactly how one can save 126? It says pre redemption cost is £16 a month and "Save over £126 Cashback by redemption on O2

This will save you £-65.90 over the 12 month duration of the contract. In effect this means that your average line rental per month over the contract period is £5.49 per month. "

However, 16*12 = 192 - 65.90 = 126.10 which means 10.50 per month.. where does cashback of 126 fits the picture?

Apologies if I am missing something..

You save £10.50 a month, that is £126 over 12 months?

it's a bit confusing because on line it says the cashback amount will be £126 but the next line says it will be £65.90 - would be worth clarifying with them before taking it out as it's a good deal if you get the full £126 cashback

Sorry, I still dont get it.. the five cashback of £13.18 only adds up to £65.90 and not £126..

However, through e2save, you get cashbacks of 25.22 5 times, which does add up..

I've just logged into my account with them and it shows different under the cashback claims. It shows 5 lots of cashback of £25.40.

That makes more sense. If you look at the information deal below this one it shows £0 cashback even though it says £84 on the main page. So there's something up with their cashback calculation function on the webpage methinks

This looks like a decent offer.

Can you email your bills for cashback as it says to post the bill on the info tab

Yes, once you get a SIM you get a login. On there is a table with the months you have to claim. Once a claim is ready a button appears where you can then attach a PDF or JPG of the bill and they take care of the rest.

Thanks..I'll get one for the other half. Offer came just in time as I was going to buy a giffgaff sim

You can't moan at this offer cheers op

Ordered but no indication that it's a micro or nano sim

If it's micro you need scissors if it's nano you need an adapter free at all 3 stores

Would definitely get this if I didn't need Three's "Feel At Home" perk for my travels this year.

If I'm already on an O2 SIM, can I still do this?

Just got this too. Works out with £20 quidco and CashBack by redemption to be £3.83 a month. Also been using mobiles.co.uk for years. Simple to submit bills and never had a problem with them either.

I received mine this morning, ordered Tuesday night and order was complete yesterday. Supposed to be 2nd Class but came next day. Although my wife's hasn't arrived yet which is strange ...

Anyway - the SIM is full size but has the perforations so you can pop it out as a micro if you want. You can't do the same for Nano though (which is also what I need for my Galaxy Alpha). I have a SIM cutter though so all good.

From experience they try and charge more for a nano as it's typically an iPhone SIM.

U just ring O2 aftet u revive the sim and they send you the correct one

Since you have to send the bills, will it affect the cashback if I port my previous number. As the mob number will be different on the first and 2nd bill

Just ordered 4 of these to replace everyones giffgaff accounts(£7.50pm) in my household! The increase in data allowance of 250mb to 1gb is a real bonus. I've used mobiles.co.uk many times over the years and found them to be excellent. Easy to send bills online too. Just make a note in your calendar to send your bill(s). Over the course of 1 year it'll have saved me £180 which is always nice Just need to remember to sort out new contracts when the year is up.

No, you just inform mobiles.co.uk of your new number and that's it!

You have to send five bills on time by recorded delivery over 12 months for this to work out. Seems a lot of faff when the redemptions are only for about £13 a time.

Thanks, looks like a good deal.

From their website:
Will keeping my existing number affect my cashback deal?

No, you can still claim discounted line rental if you have discarded your new number in favour of your existing one as long as this number is quoted on your network bills. However, please let us know your new number so we can update our records.

If you read this thread you would see that isn't the case or can you not read ?

I've never had a mobile with a package including a data allowance. What sort of amount of stuff would this package allow me to do without going over the allowance?

Any need to be so rude?

I can read perfectly well and did so off their site. My issue was more the number of claims being a faff, if I was counting the figures my first point would have been the fact that it did not add up. The fact that they have mistakes on the site means it is even more likely to have a problem during the claim process.

Why do they not just charge the cheaper price instead of making you claim cashback, its beyond me.

Because people miss the claim period sometimes forget.. Issues arise that's how they make their money.

Because they know some people will forget to do it (or do it wrong) and that's where they make their moolah. I get your point though There's probably some up-selling technique in here too i.e. "this deal seems like a lot of faff, I'll drop into my local O2 and get something there" which will be more expensive.

Once you place the order you get an online account - where you can change your number on there once its been ported. Then everything ties up and you should be good. I've had the same number for 15 years now and had no issues doing this with Mobiles.

HI guys..Just wondering to know my current contract with O2 is going to end on 27 march and I have taken my PAC code from o2 because they did not given me any good deal. So can I take this contract and keep my current number ? Please any suggestion ?

Following the rude comment I have done so. Generally speaking I don't read all the comments before purchasing deals or commenting and I don't think I am the only one.

I would also say that my main point stands regardless, having to send 5 bills by recorded delivery within a set time limit is a faff for a relatively small amount of cashback. This would be useful information to carefully point out along with mentioning that the site is showing a different amount in the main deal blurb. That would be easier than finding issue with people not going through the whole thread.

which months bills do u have to send in? tnx

"Also the cashback on the site is wrong, but I have confirmed on my online account with them that it's 5 cashback payments of £25.40."

Can you show the confirmation please?

Total cost is £192, not £65.

Again - you don't have to send via recorded delivery, you can do it online. I've posted a screenshot of my online account with the correct cashback amounts. .

I also adjusted the deal description to state the cashback values aren't right on the site too.

And what constitutes a "small" amount of cashback? It's a good deal when compared to the total cost. £5.50/£16 = 34% so you're saving 2/3 of the original line rental.

If you want to save more money, why not go for the deal on the same site which is unlimited minutes and texts, 8GB data. £30/month RRP but effective is £15/month, saving £180? Even though you're only making a 50% saving?
