Orange Panther 12 month SIM only (Usually) 15.50 - £10.50 per month before potential £80 Quidco = £3.83 per month. (£126 Term)

Found 19th Nov 2012
Potential £3.83 per month effective for 300 mins, unlimited texts & 500mb data. (SIM Only).



Quidco exclusive deal with Orange - £80 cashback for SIM only deals £10.50 and above.

The 15.50 Panther 12 month SIM only contract is normally £15.50 per month but is currently reduced to £10.50.


The contract is for:

300 minutes
Unlimited Texts
500mb Data


So £10.50 x 12 = £126. (for the year)
Subtract Quidco £80 = £46 (for the year)

Effective monthly rate of £3.83 for a contract that will suit most folk.




Obviously Quidco is not 100% guaranteed but I've never had a problem with any Quidco deal of this kind (& I've done a few).

Went for it a month ago when they last had the same deal (w/£80cb). The cashback paid in less than a month. (voted hot!).

My only slight negative comment (if I understand it correctly) is my contract started from the day I purchased it online, but I only got the sim card, registered it and ported my number over about 5 days later, so effectively paid for 5 days without any service. I may have misunderstood, and it may well be the same with all other networks!
this is only a deal if you can be bothered to set up a seperate account for whenever the cashback pays out and then use it towards paying off the bill. which i suspect most people wouldn't really want to mess around with.

so it turns into an average sim only with a lump sum payment maybe 6 months later .. heat though, i'm not a total ****
It should be 500mb data not 500gb. LolX)

Yeah, same with all networks really. SIM card or phone, when you've ordered it its yours and thus you start paying. Most will usually wait until the day you're supposed to receive it though. If you're porting a number in, you've still got to pay but you can still use it whilst waiting after all.

If the Cashback pays then it's a great deal. Whatever you meant above it makes no sense, money is money whether you pay for it up front or not.
Great deal! I've been waiting for a deal like this to come along! £46 for the year is a awesome deal!

yes, it's money, but factoring in the cashback payout into reducing the cost of the monthly payments is wholly inaccurate - unless you set up a seperate account and pay in the cashback amount so that the required amount is taken out each month.

no mobile phone network that i know of will take a lump sum payment to offset against the on-going monthly payments.

Once you have the money it's irelevant what you use it for. You have it and it came from Orange therefore the cost of the contract is reduced accordingly.

I think I know what you are getting at Hank but as Hearts says money is money.

The monthly payments to Orange will come out of my account that the cashback will be getting paid into.

Balancing the financial books is all about money in vs money out and even if the discount isn't instant - its the end of year balance that counts.

Its true that a mobile phone company wont take a lump sum to offset payments but that doesnt alter the fact that I will.
Would you qualify for the u24 deal as well with this???
Thanks for that deal TOMB - I've been trying to switch (cheaply) from PAYG to a contract and didn't want all the hassle of those cashback forms (I've done them before, and they work perfectly, but it is still nicer not to have to bother). I saw some T-Mobile deals on Top Cashback, but you had to pick the tariff above the £10.50 one. This deal gives me plenty and works out very cheap. I know everyone says that quidco isn't guaranteed, but I clear my cookies before I order and I never have any problems with tracking or with the cashback. For me (personally), it doesn't matter whether the cashback is paid into another account or taken off the bill.

RE Cashback. I ordered this last month and the Cashback didn't appear to have tracked so I cancelled. A few days later it tracked and was confirmed and paid. So I'm £80 up.
I placed my order immediately before posting this deal [about 90 mins ago] and Quidco has just tracked at the full £80.

Happy days ;-)
Would like to go for this but am already with orange and have a cool number that I done want to change. Anyway around this ?

Port your number over to a dummy sim of a different number then port it back to Orange

Please tell me you were messing around with your comments. I can't believe anyone can be that stupid - nice attempt at a wind up though. Hot deal btw, done it 4 months ago, cash back took its time but came good last week.
Reckon U24 will work as the base price is £15.50?

Since you asked, it was not an attempt at a wind-up - it's just how i feel. Look at your own situation - 4 months to get the cashback. Sure, you've got a nice lump sum to play with now, but you've still been paying the full price for the contract and you'll still be paying the full price until the end of it, so the cashback cannot be directly linked to the ongoing monthly cost - obviously in my humble opinion as, apparently, a pedant.

Do they have this deal often then? This is exactly what I am looking for as I am happy with my phone. Only problem is my contract expires 13 Jan 2013 so it's bad timing for me.
Not quite as good a deal as I am on now but if you can get the cashback then it is great, but as it is with Quidco then I wouldn't touch it.
I've had 2 of these out of Orange, my 2nd one only at £35 But that was the offer 3 weeks ago, and I've just been paid it.
So far that's £115 out of Orange and £100 from Voda, all good!
Whats the cost of calls to answerphone?

Just wait, sure there will be some January sales for you to grab!
Anybody who's on Panther or looking to get this, don't forget Orange Swapables ....

Found this deal earlier, is a cracker in my books. Waiting a couple of days closer to the end of my contract
I wouldn't touch orange with a bargepole, their customer service is terrible. Ive have been waiting to get my phone unlocked for 6 month, they just wont do it, and to top it off i can't even get through to someone to help with it.

That looks interesting.

It does say on this page that its only for 18 month & higher contracts pantherplan.orange.co.uk/faqs

Would be happy to hear that its different with a SIM only plan !
Typical ordered this sim last week & activated yesterday, whilst only £35 Cashback. But still works out cheaper than the £25.54 I was paying on my contract with them.

At least the £35 took me over the £50 & 10 purchases for the quidco double cashback deal, I suppose if i'd got the £80 I would have had to have made another 5 purchses through quidco chasing the £100 bonus. (Already struggled to get too 10)

if you login to your account on orange you can over pay the bill with a debit or credit card, so any future one's will come out of that credit

No, only £15 or over.



Hi, I got this deal when it was on a couple of months ago, I can confirm that U24 has been applied to my account from the first month. So I get (in total!) 1.5GB of data plus unlimited calls and texts to Orange and T- Mobile, plus the standard 300 mins to any network. It's been a really good deal for me, although it did take about 4 months for Orange to pay out, but they did in the end

Hope this helps!
Does anyone know why there are specific plans for iphones and blackberrys? If I get this deal will it not work with my iphone 5?

How did you get the U24 added on?

and a question for everyone, cash back isn't guaranteed is it? I just want to know what is the chance that it wont get paid out, before i sign up for this deal
