Samsung Galaxy Y - £7.50/24m @ Mobiles.co.uk but only 27p via redemption

Found 20th Jun 2012
Not one for all, I know lots of people hate redemption deals, but if thats your thang then this is a stupidly cheap deal.

Samsung Galaxy Y on Talk Mobile
250 minutes
5000 texts
500Mb internet

Pay £7.50/month then claim back most of it by redemption, making it £1.53/month. Topcashback pay £30.30, so averages at 27p/month. Thats under £6.50 for the whole 2 years.

Sure its no S3, but would make a great kids handset.

EDIT: Make sure you choose the 99p line rental as your free gift, not the £30 cashback.

Thanks to blaster for the following:

If you're struggling with the above as there's some confusion on the website or you don't have the account number, ring 0800 049 1067, use Option 1, and they will cancel the insurance there and then (and send confirmation in the post). They then told me to ring 0844 499 4744 to cancel the technical support policy, which was confirmed over the phone. If you took out more than one phone contract, you'll only have one gadget policy per household apparently.

Hell sell the phone on ebay shove it in a lumia 710 for example and its a stunning deal... you end up quids in (or any phone you might own)

I'd go for this if it was on O2. Talk Mobile is on the Vodaphone network, which has no coverage here. I am just coming to the end of a mobiles.co.uk redemption deal (24 months)- got all the redemption cheques already with no hassle.

Thanks, thats good to know. I signed my step dad up last week on this, but it was about £3 a month then. Got this deal for my step brother on Monday and thought it a bit of a bargain. Forgot to post it though, too busy looking for a decent S3 deal

Appreciated, thank you...

No idea I'm afraid, not something I needed for my step dad. I did put 3G Watchdog on it, to cut his data off if he hits his limit. I also installed a call counter, to tell him how much he'd used. Pretty sure that wouldn't cut the phone off though, not sure if there is an app that will.

Hi,
Look I am very old, so please can you explain to me how this whole 27p/month works.

Thanks

I tried to order Sony Xperia U yesterday on mobiles.co.uk, but they came back asking for £100 deposit for 6 months. They said it depends on credit check etc, I am with 3 now, 24month contract no problem there, then why they asking for deposit.
Any suggestion? experiences?

First, you go to the deal through TopCashback. That will (eventually) get you a cashback payment of £30.30 if you take out a phone contract on mobiles.co.uk. If you aren't registered on TopCashback, you need to do that first (it's free).

Then, once you have signed up for the contract, choosing the money back by redemption offer, you will pay the bills as normal (direct debit) and claim the money back by sending in certain bills, about one in three. Mobiles.co.uk have a chart to tell you which bills to send in. YOU MUST DO THIS TO GET THE MONEY BACK. You can send the bills in online, as scans or pdf files, and you have about two months to do it each time. Mobiles.co.uk will email you to acknowledge that they have received the bills, and they even tell you if you sent in the wrong one, but they will NOT remind you to do it. Every time you send in the right bill, you get a cheque a few weeks later for whatever the amount of redemption is.

PS- I am old too, but have made this work on a couple of contracts. I am very sharp, mind.

FYI: Talk Mobile only lets you go over by £50 and then it cuts out.

I have been with TopCashback a couple years now, and had about £900 back from various things. The biggest single amounts have been from car insurance (£40-£80 a time) and mobile phone deals (£30-£40), but I have had hundreds in smaller payments too. It all adds up.

If i went down to Carphone Warehouse and got a deal, is there any way i can get top cash back?

No. They pay commission to the online sites who then pass it on to you. If you go into the shop then any commission goes to the shop people.

Thank you!!!!

Excellent price, thanks for posting OP

No probs.

If you didn't want an android you can get a samsung C3050 on the same deal, that actually works out as a profit rather than a monthly cost: mobiles.co.uk/sam…tml

Many thanks OP - I've gone for this also, tho I may well get turned down as it'll be my 3rd contract handset from mobiles this year... but this one has a better bundle than the others. Heat

Does anyone know which CRA this company uses to do the credit check?

The one my step bro ordered on Monday evening has arrived already. No idea on the CRA they used I'm afraid.

I ordered this one and they too asked me for a £100 deposit , returnable in 6 months, If this company goes bust in 6 months then one will never see the £100 quid...

do you really think CPW will go bust anytime soon?

Did anyone get a text from them asking for you to ring them ?

Original Poster

Neither contracts have for me.

Really tempted. Selling the phone means at no point are you in any way out of pocket, or have I missed something?

Am I right in thinking the sim card could be used in an unlocked iPhone 4 if I were to use a micro sim cutter?

my current 3 deal is about to expire

100 minutes and texts for £7 a month, 2 years ago they gave me a nokia ( blackberry style ) that i sold for £90

so my contract has cost me £78

however i now need more minutes and texts although 250 of each would be more than enough

so 24 x £7.50 = 180, less 30 cashback so £150, sell phone for £60 ( assume unlocked and unbranded) so contract cost £90

so unless 3 offer me £3.75 a month x 24 then this could be for me

Every time I use a CPW affiliate. albeit an email not txt.

I email to ask why and each time they quote that same expensive number. I alter my details, create another account try again. This confuses them for a couple of days then they get back saying I can try again in 3 months, 6 months. Ooh I think I'll make a wall chart I wonder how many accounts you need for them to just tell you plainly to F$$* off?

What do they say when you phone them?

Doesn't sound too clever, not sure I'd intentionally ask a company to make credit checks on myself with altered details each time. They probably need additional proof of ID or information from you.

Don't go for the £30 cashback, go for the 99p line rental. You have to send off bills every few months, but the cashback is something like £140 over the term of the contract.

This deal has been around for a couple of weeks now (posted it myself but received a luke warm response then......Lol). Have signed up for two contracts & already have two others (different deals) running with this company & E2save (both owned by CPW) No iss, just make sure you cancel the 'free' insurance & geek cover that they give you for one month as after that they will sting you for the monthly charges. It can all be done on line, it just takes a bit of finding (they obviously hope you will give up & let it run!)

Careful with ordering one of these and then deciding you want to keep your old number. You have to provide your PAC code at the time of ordering otherwise your old number will be lost forever!

Wasn't your deal for a refurb? Is this the same? Hope not - just ordered!

Do you know if the phone/sim is locked?

When looking at this deal one of the things that worried me was how to go about cancelling that stuff, any chance you could shed some light on how to go about it please?

i took out the deal a few weeks back , but that was a refurbed samsung galaxy y , this deal as no refference to being refurbed, so i have gone for another , one thing is i did not receive the phone insurance document and with out the policy number the online cancellation page on cpw web site will not let you cancel , so i cancelled the direct debit , the gadget line was fairly easy to cancel online, just check your direct debits , leave the talkmobile one in place as thats the £7.50 phone contract but any other new ones delete from your bank dd list .
