Possible Free £30 on O2 Pay & Go SIM (£10 Top-up Required)

Posted 6th Apr 2015

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Just order an O2 Pay & Go sim through tcb/quidco to get £10 cash back on O2 free sim. After receiving the sim keep it for 2 weeks. O2 will then email you to activate the sim to receive £20 extra credit. Activate the sim by topping up £10 to make the balance £30 and wait for the time being to receive your £10 cashback from tcb/quidco. Tcb offering extra 1% which means another 10p on top.

Most of the times O2 transfer cash back quickly. Make sure your order tracked properly or do it manually to claim your cash back for a missing track.

Please note that initially O2 will offer you £10 bonus credit for activation. Just ignore it and wait for the next email which will tell you about £20 bonus credit. Using TCB/Quidco is not mandatory but a platform to get cash back.



Don't forget to opt in to the o2 offers or you won't be getting no email.

Make sure you select Big Talker, as it does not convert your top up. That way you can use your credit for anything.

Found a way to get £30 psn credit without using a bank card. What you do is top up the £25 psn so you will then have £4.90..... Then go to the google play store and spend at least £4.50... Then dial 4444 and get the lend us a pound....then go back to the google play store and get an instant refund on the apps to make the phone credit £5.90, then top up the psn wallet and you also have 90p to spend on google play store

Getting £25 Credit for £10


Go through TCB or Quidco (potential £5 cash-back - limited to 3 times a year) and order a £30 / 20GB "Big Bundle" SIM. Be careful not to order any other SIM as that is the only one that works currently. You should get the SIM within a few days.

Register the SIM to get a bonus £5 credit - it can take up to 5 days to apply but is well worth doing.
You need to use a unique email address for each SIM - Open a page at fakemail.net and use the email address provided. Leave the page open, to monitor for the validation email (you need to click the link).

Before topping up, make sure the pack your SIM comes in has the FREE10 offer on the back and make sure mobile data is switched off on your phone.
Top up by £10 via 4444 or online and then send "FREE10" via text to 21500. Sometimes, a certain bank card will not work - try another, try a different method or wait a few days to try again. O2 online top-up will fail if you use auto-fill for your card details - make sure you type everything out manually.
You’ll have to wait for little while (can be up to 48 hours) and you might have to send the FREE10 message again for the bonus credit to be added (dial *#10# to check).

If you've done everything as above, you should have £25 credit



PSN


Log in to PSN on a desktop browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc), click your avatar in the top right corner and choose "Payment Management". Click "Add Funds" and then "Pay by Mobile".
Using @CaptainPrizun 's method, press F12 to open the developer tools, press Ctrl+F and search for "£50". Change the payment option from <option value="5000">£50.00</option> to <option value="2490">£24.90</option>.
Select the modified drop-down option and click Continue. Enter your mobile number and click Continue - you should get a text message within 30s - reply with "Y" and you should get £24.90 of PSN credit. If Boku rejects your phone number, try again but enter an invalid number and then when it asks which network that number is from, enter the correct number (credit: @Elliot_Lee ).

PSN limits to the frequency that you can do this to 3 times a month and there is also a ceiling of £140 on your PSN wallet.



Microsoft Store

You can't top up your wallet directly on the MS Store - you can only use your credit to buy items so you should plan your top-up around the price of the item. If you go over £29 credit on the 20GB SIM, it will convert into a monthly bundle so the maximum you should top up is £14 (possible via 4444).

It is possible to pay for XBox games through the Console, via the website or via the app:
With the O2 SIM inserted in your phone, open the XBox app, open the Microsoft Store, click "Buy" on the item you want and change the payment method.
Add a payment method and choose mobile phone. Choose O2 as the operator and enter your O2 number. The O2 payment method will stay active for subsequent purchases until you change it back / to another SIM.



Google Play

You can't top up your wallet directly on the Google Play Store - you can only use your credit to buy items.
With the O2 SIM inserted in your Android phone, make a purchase from the Play Store. When you get to checkout, tap the payment method under the price and add O2 as a payment method.
After a few seconds, it should let you check out, debiting the SIM balance.



Apple App Store / iTunes

You can't top up your wallet directly on the Apple App Store / iTunes - you can only use your credit to buy items.

For iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, open the iTunes or App Store app, scroll to the bottom of the main page, and tap on their Apple ID to open up the Account Settings menu. Tap on "Payment Information", and select "Mobile Phone" as the payment method.
If the O2 SIM is in your iPhone, choose "Use This Mobile Number". Otherwise choose "Use a Different Mobile Number" and get a text message with a one-time code sent to the O2 SIM.

For Mac or Windows, open iTunes and go into to the "Account" menu at the top. Select "View My Account" and click "Edit" in the Apple ID Summary to choose a different payment type. This will send a text message to the O2 SIM with a one-time code.



There are other methods, involving "Lend-us-a-quid", etc but they are more lengthy, more complex or leave you with less credit so I have removed them from this guide.
There are other stores that accept mobile payments (Facebook, Spotify, etc): o2.co.uk/cha…ile

I think I might have found something that could stop you from needing to topup £11 every time and keeping 90p loose on various sim cards.

If you go on a desktop and open inspect element (F12), click on the 'Amount to add' drop down list and add a new value to the list you can specify how much you want to topup. (i.e. add <option value="2490">£24.90</option> to add 24.90)

I used it over the weekend to add £25 after I noticed the option was taken away.

Obviously use at your own risk as you're futzing with a major website but seeing as you're still giving them money I can't see them getting exceptionally lairy about it.

Abuse of a deal brings attention - its why almost no misprices on here are honoured... And the 1st & 2nd rule of this deal

As a long-term benefitter of this deal, you should appreciate that fact but I'll say no more

As someone above mentioned it works on a monthly basis so if I did the first top-up on the 4th and hit the limit within that month you'll need to wait till the 4th of next month. I guess the limit is either £100 or 8 transactions.


This kind of excess brings a lot of attention to you personally and to the deal in general.
Go easy and we all continue to benefit

Go to your Playstation account, buy £25 topup, pay with SMS. O2 credit turns into PSN credit.
I'm not bothered about Quidco or TCB are they a requirement for O2 to e-mail you later? It's unclear from the deal posting.

If I order a SIM directly from O2 are they likely to e-mail me?
Thanks..OP... Ordered International Pay as you go Sim. cheers
Thanks
Great fine thanks for Sharing
Can i order two sims to get £60 credit for psn?
Great, thanks op, ordered.
None of the cash back is guaranteed so title should be updated to possible cash back

Usually topcashback and quidco have nothing to do with the merchants. So you should still receive email from O2, but will only make a profit of £10.

I highly recommend topcashback and quidco! I have made way over £100 from them in less than 6 months! Every little helps!
great stuff, just ordered one
have u got a screen shot of the email that 02 are stating the free credit as proof?

Use your pc, laptop or ipad/tab instead.
I think this credit can be used on the Google Play Store too!
Ordered a £10 sim.

It will work surely unless they change their policy, I have been receiving over the last 6 months!

There is a clause upon ordering that states:

Confirm you want your service to start as soon as you top up your sim … Confirm you want your service to start as soon as you top up your sim (you’ll still have 14 days to cancel, you’ll just pay for what you’ve used).



Does this mean the credit will automatically be used for a bundle?

Yes O2 will email you definitely after 2 weeks. Initially they will email you top up £10 to get £10 bonus credit. Just ignore it. wait for 2 weeks and you will receive the £20 bonus offer. Simple!

Tcb or quidco are not a requirement. It is only for making some cash back to heat the £30 absolutely free!

"Big Bundle" is one option. Select "Big talker" for the classic style PAYG tariff that does not expire monthly. It is only the bonus free O2 to O2 minutes, texts and data that expire, not the credit itself.

The data you should be able to use in a tablet. I am not sure about the particular micro/nano sim for ipad
or tablet that included in the offer. There is a £10 bonus credit though.
