Retentions Deal - Vodafone SIMO 25GB Entertainment Plan £20.80pm (12 months contract - £249.60)

Found 8th Oct
My first post so please be nice.

Phoned Vodafone to renew my SIMO deal and managed to get the 25GB entertainment plan for £18.20pm instead of £25.

Spotify Premium is usually £9.99 a month so makes the 25GB equivalent to £8.20pm.

Good deal i think especially if you want Spotify, Now Tv or Sky Sports.

Thanks for sharing @AirbusA380

I'm paying £15.00 for exactly the same I'm afraid so cold from me.

Cheaper going through mobiles.co.uk with their cashback offer, works out at £15.75 a month.





Take off the £9.99 Spotify and it's the equivalent of £5.76 a month.

Not a great retention offer. Sorry.

I'd cancel and go with mobiles.co.uk

Agreed through mobiles.co.uk is cheaper but who actually remembers to send bills away at the given dates? Not for me sorry, because I know if end up forgetting to send my bills away then it will cost me more in the long run.

I would like to know this as well, 40% off an already discounted plan. I know Vodafone will give 40% off a non discounted plan.

It took some time on the phone. Some get 50% off retention deals so I'm not saying it's that good plus vodafone customer service isn't the best.

​Set up reminders on your phone calendar for the day your bill is raised on the relevant months, download the PDF copy of your bill and upload it to your account on mobiles.co.uk.

The whole process takes about 2 minutes to perform (every other month) so will take you 12 minutes of your time over the year to save you £60.

Ok so it's a 24 month contract. It would have been a great deal if it was 12 months sim only. I'm paying £17.50 for the same deal on SIMO via advantage scheme. I'll call em up if they can do any better than the plan I'm on. Thanks.

If someone offered me a 24 month deal at a price I was happy with, I'd be delighted - not having to 'dance' again for 2 years!

Also to the other poster about mobiles.co.uk, for many £2.50/mth or £30 not to have to do 4 or 5 (or is it up to 6 now) redemptions with the risk of forgetting is well worth it. I would probably just about go with the redemption if I was not already with vodafone (thus having the hassle/expense of porting out & back).

I got that 16gb deal with entertainment package for £19.20 with 3 months free for 12 months. Works out at £172.80 for the duration or £14.40 a month

You got lucky, I was on the same plan as you the past 12 months and they absolute refused to give me the same or even close to that. Reason they couldn't discount the £25 hero sim but from your pic it seems like they just added 40% discount on your account. Are you in a 1month rolling contract? Did you get spotify?

That's right that added 40% discount to encourage me to stay with them. It's a 12 month contract with spotify or a choice of any if there 12 month entertainment option included.

When did you upgrade the contract? Was it recently?

Gavinlancs22 h, 36 m ago

It's a 12 month contract.

I see. But your Screenshot says 24 months and so i assumed it's part of a phone deal.

Also says expires April 2019. Strange sim only deal.

Not a phone deal straight from. Vodafone and it's SIM only......strange but true.

Vodafone can give more off....I've been on 70% for a couple of years but came off as they kept upping the baseline price and I left. Takes a bit of effort and a few calls.

By the way, I tried one more time with Vodafone and the way I did it is a far more gettable deal than a phantom one-off from yesteryear. Go through to retentions and ask for 2 months free - simple as that. There's a good chance they will do it. Then apply VEA 30% off. So if you go for £25 for 25gb it brings total cost to £14.58/month. Alternatively, £17 for 8gb works out to less than £10/month.

was told they were no longer able to apply the VEA discount to that tariff..
also don't forget the £10 fee when re applying for VE

Yes that's what I thought. But they were able to do it for me. I had conflicting views from different people I spoke to! Wish they would all be on the same page. Had the £10 waived. But anyway YMMV

Oh that deal has been and gone I'm afraid. There was a deal in June. Can prob search for it in hotukdeals. And sorry it was 4gb not 6gb
