Sky retentions deal - Unlimited Broadband + Line Rental £8.99 p/m

Found 25th AprEdited by:"Schwifty"
Expiried because it just gets cold votes. Posted as a heads up to anyone so worth a shot. I got it 4 times.

The broadband itself is free, the line rental is discounted to £8.99 and there was a £2.50 admin fee (most folk might not have even seen that it stated it in the offer Ts&Cs. So total for 12 months is £110.38.

Now if you hit that "get deal" link you're just going to go through to Sky's broadband page. It's useless. What you need to do is sign in, go to the chat and try and get this dealio. Or if you're feeling like using your voice (which would be quicker, probably) then call 0332 022 135.

It will revert to £30 a month after the 12 month contract is up, so be prepared to get a new deal come this time next year.

How did you get this deal?! Where's your proof!?!? I have proof but it could easily be faked, just like any chat transcript or email or receipt or any of that.

Tips:

Be polite
Don't rush
Don't panic

You'll probably be offered £13.99
If you do your maths you will know that the Quidco £20 bonus on broadband deals plus the standard cashback for Now Broadband at 18 a month means this is slightly more expensive. They're the same company.
Ask again if they're sure that is the best they can do as you've seen better when you take cashback offers into account. If they don't like that deal then you can say that with EE you get cashback and a prepaid card and it works out at under £12.
Say the router isn't the best, you don't get 2 bands, the broadband is not the most reliable but overall you've had worse and they're a good company so you'd like to stay and it benefits them too as they don't have to send out a new router or anything.

They'll probably offer you this, you can suggest it yourself if they don't.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm not trying to sell you this, I'm just bringing it to your attention and if you want it you can go and get it no problem. They offered me £13.99 first but I had done my home work and knew about the best other deals out there and the cash back and what not and they came back with this offer.

The other broadband deal I posted recently went cold but it's still a good one if you are not already a Sky customer. Maybe go through to your own retentions department and check out what they can do for you before leaving. There's other deals out there too, if you need to swap and worry that you'll forget and lapse a couple of months down the line then you might be best going with the First Utilities £16p/m deal which supposedly wont increase at the end of the contract.

Now I'm not expecting this to go hot, I don't care, but if you're a Sky customer looking for a better deal this is the best you're going to get for standard broadband.

Although i have unlimited fibre, not standard broadband, my subs beat this as not only is it fibre, but it also includes anytime calls to landline and mobile numbers, all for £12 a month.

Super duper. I have a mobile telephone that includes all the anytime minutes I want to landline and mobiles and I don't have to stand up I just don't even plug in a land line phone. Now, a lot of people want that, I accept. But I don't, I hate them. The only people who phoned me on it were marketing people for so long that I cut the cord years ago and never looked back. Don't think I've had the inconvenience of a land line phone in my life for at least seven years now.

On the other hand, yes, your deal is better, and you should have posted about it before now and if you did then well done to you I didn't notice.

I couldn't see any point posting it, as they are not only account specific, but also what you get depends on how far you push to get through to the right people. We have the BT phones that have nuisance call blocker built in, so don't have unannounced calls, also we live in an area which at best has a patchy mobile signal so rely on a landline more than others will. Horses for courses.

Indeed - this deal is available to all sky customers who do as I suggest who are out of contract. Any tips about what you said to retentions to get that deal would be appreciated. Otherwise if someone benefits from this its good. I can't get fibre whereI live so again I've a different horse on my course.

This deal will only get cold votes, will not appear in any of the hottest deals etc and it hampers the thing so I'm just going to expire it but if you're reading this and you're interested then I say go for it as you'll get it.

You may get the deal saintscouple posted if you're looking for fibre but honestly its not worth it to me to keep this active as it doesn't benefit anyone getting cold votes.

I presume its because its a retentions deal that it gets the cold votes, I don't know, I don't care, I'm not trying to get hot votes on here I'm just trying to help. All the best in your hunt for better priced ADSL.

What are you saying? I don't care about heat. I just don't want it getting -1000 when its actually a really good deal and the more heat means the less likely people will look at it. Whatever though, I guess heat is your game.

If I'm wrong and it is better to leave unexpired then I can do that, let me know your thoughts and not your cynicism.

Excellent deal, I thought I'd done well when sky retentions offered me my bb at a tenner a month !

Yeah but that's not your call to make, simple site rules, deals should only be expired if they are no longer available.
Great deal, usual idiots voting!

Cool, well its active. I don't care, at all. I always thought it was available. The cold votes are because other folk think it isn't.

Whatever, hope everyone enjoys this.

Yep! You did it, well done, cheapest UK broadband deal availavle and you have it!

Cold deal means others will miss out but well done to you
I got this deal last year, but SKY retentions would not give me the package for a second year, I told them of the Plusnet £10.24 deal (posted here* ) - no joy. So over to Plusnet I go.
