Found 13th JanMade hot 13th Jan
Refurb condition described as 'like new', and is a 14 day return.

To get this price you need to take out a data contract, which you can cancel straight away and forces you to pay off the remainder of the device plan.

Device plan: £2 per month + £4.99 upfront = £52.99

Cheapest data plan: £5 per month (500Mb)

Not done this before myself, so I think that's how it works, but there have been other deals posted along these lines before.

EDIT: Quidco has tracked at £10, though I'll believe it when it's in my bank account

is this not a 24 month contract?

is this not a 24 month contract?



Was just going to say that

2 x 24 = 48
+ 4.99 = 52.99

You cancel the data plan.

Yes, but you can cancel the airtime plan, so £4.99 upfront, pay off device plan straight away for £2 x 24 months (£48), and thats it. Don't need it but ordered, thanks OP.

Don't think they will let it go that cheap as other option is £77 upfront + £5 data plan. Anyone can advise on this?

Ordered, can't envisage any issues. But with delivery tomorrow and distance selling act, should be covered.

For £52.99 it's good price for a Samsung tablet . I've ordered one for my 9yr old. Her old Lenovo has a charging port issue.

where is this £2 a month.. ?? I cant find it..

4.99 + (2x24)

You are cancelling airtime.

Please be aware. They do credit check. I was about to buy this tablet but didn't complete checkout. I wanted to save the credit check for better deals. If you ain't looking for any phones or tablets then go for this deal.

The deal isn't as stated.

You need to take out a 24 month data contract at £5 per month to get the deal.

Total cost is - £4.99 + £168 (£7*24) = £172.99.

Shame.

so, how soon after ordering can i cancel the data plan? Thanks

The device is £2 a month on top of the £5 data SIM so cancel the SIM and pay off the £2 multiples by the 24 months making it £48 plus the initial upfront £4.99 for the device

Straight away....but you will need to pay the outstanding balance of the contracted 24 months.

Vassy, please advise on this:
"Online and telephone purchases

If you purchased your phone or tablet through the o2.co.uk website or by speaking to an O2 advisor on the phone, call our customer services team to let us know that you’d like to arrange an exchange on 0344 809 0202.

If the replacement is more expensive, you’ll need to pay the difference. If you've taken a bundle, you'll need to return all the equipment in that bundle."

You'll need to return all your goods within 14 days of telling us you want to cancel the contract. If you've taken a bundle, this means you'll need to return all the equipment in that bundle.

If you've taken a sim only deal or a Bolt -On, with no phone or tablet, then you'll still need to tell us you want to cancel, but you don't have to return the sim. Instead you'll need to break it in half and throw it away. You can do that by contacting us on the phone or in store.

If you cancel, we'll give you back all the payments you've made, apart from your old contract buy-out fee or any express delivery charges"

Is this too good to be true as posted by OP?

NOT £52 more like near £173...

You cancel the airtime!

iduno87

The plan is showing as minimum 24 month contract...so you need to pay for the 24 months.

I've done these refresh deals before you can cancel the airtime you might have to pay month one depending on when you get it cancelled but that's it got an lg g3 and an HTC m8 back in the day for peanuts using this method

twist

2 x 24 = 48+ 4.99 = 52.99You cancel the data plan.




£4.99 and £2 is tablet fees.. then £5 a month x 24 for airtime.. TOTAL £173..

also can someone please tell me how I would go about cancelling the data after I order it. thanks.

As previously stated, you can cancel the airtime within the first 14 days.

I have done refresh deals and posted deals too.
You cancel airtime. Paying only for the phone. As per this deal it's 24X 2 plus the 4.99 upfront.

It's an O2 refresh plan, you can pay off the device and cancel the airtime. I've just done that with a galaxy S7, paid £50 up front, called and told them I want to pay off the device and cancel the airtime, they took £288 to pay off the device plan balance and cancelled the airtime.

Ordered. Thanks OP

Mate, nobody tries to scare someone, we just try to figure out this deal can be taken without creating any further issues

Seriously , It's explained so simply, so why do people find it confusing?

I did this with an iPhone, think I waited a few days after the phone arrived then cancelled the aitlrtime via chat with no problems

One thing to be aware of, o2 normally screw up billing and try and bill the full amount for airtime, so do check. Took almost 2 months to get £360 back off them on my Huwaei P9 plan...

Sorry.
Thought you were stating fact rather than asking the question.
Too many people on here get scared of going for a O2 refresh deal because others state you have to see out the 24 month contract. O2 offer a 14 day cooling off period on the airtime. Pay for the device in full; over the phone, online or instore and then cancel the sim only.
Hope that clears things up

This is the FIRST refresh deal I've gone for!!! (Does anyone else get an adrenaline rush )

So what's the next step after ordering?!! (Did anyone actually read everything whilst ordering??!! oO X) )

OOS already
