Simply 8 tarrif available to non Virgin Media customers

** I'm not sure where to list this so please Mods feel free to move ********

This offer is only for current Virgin Mobile customers who do not have a Virgin Media service.

EDIT I am not saying that this is the best deal out there. Asda and others are cheaper. This is for Virgin mobile PAYG customers who do not want to change but would like cheaper calls.

Normally if you have TV or Phone or Broadband you get an exclusive 8p taffif. However, I was emailed an invite to join this exclusive tarrif. I also managed to sign up a second sim not on my account so this should work for all. Now not only do I now get all calls and texts for 8p. But 50 mins free to any Virgin Mobile (time to sign up the missus). I am not sure if this works for those who pay via DD. My sim is a true PAYG sim topped up manually

Anyway here's the email details and hope this can help some of you:

Vote cold? Why? This offer is only for those on Virgin Mobile tariff. Did you not read it. To be honest I don't care what you vote. I just wanted to spread the deal. Thanks to those who used this and gained from it. All others please ignore as it's only for Virgin Mobile customers. Please don't vote if you don't have a Virgin Mobile PAYG phone.:whistling:

I have to add I am also an Asda mobile customer which is cheaper than Virgin. But this 'deal' if you can call it a deal is a way of getting better rates if you want to stick with Virgin or have a sim like I did. Simple to do.

So if you are on the standard Virgin PAYG tarrif then this will be cheaper, plus I now get 50 mins of free calls to other Virgin mobile phones. That's a bonus. As already mentioned this is normally offered to Virgin Media customers but now it seem that you can change even if you didn't get the email.

no text conformation from them yet!!! did you get one??

I never got text confirmation. Virgin are upgrading their network over 19/20 weekend so not sure how this will affect tariff swaps. For me, I logged in on line and my account initially said pending tariff change. The next day it showed the new tariff.:thumbsup:

ok thanks, i spose i can try calling someone on virgin and find out that way!!!

THANKS

Thanks for posting OP.

Thanks for the comment, at least some of you read it and used it. Unlike the 'cold' voters. Cheers. :thumbsup:
