Tesco Mobile Family Perks on pay monthly contracts. Add extra mins or data for free.

Found 21st Jun 2012
Tesco mobile are now doing family perks. So if you have at least two SIMS on your account (I have mine and my wifes) you can choose a top up for free.

I've got for £12.50, 500mins, 5000 txt and 500Mb so can chose a perk of an extra 150 mins, 250Mb or 500 mobile mins.

I'll prob go for the data, but the wife will prob go for the mobile mins.
It's a one month contract and they use O2.

Not sure if you get bigger perks if you are on a more expensive contract.

As an aside. The customer services and setup has so far being really good.

You can also register a clubcard and get points every month depending how much your bill is. So i'll get points on at least £25 per month.

PLEASE DO NOT EXPIRE. THIS IS STILL A VALID DEAL.

Yep. I did it this morning. Just log in to your account and click the family perk link.
You'll need to set a perk for each SIM on the account.

Brilliant thankyou. Just logged onto my tesco mobile and discovered I had 2 family perks to choose. 150 minutes extra on both phones-would never have known as dont go to my account much!

great now got 650 mins instead of 500 min

Great find . Voted hot

Is it possible to merge accounts? We have 2 different accounts, although both are using the same debit card for payment.

As far as I know the only thing that matters is the payment.
If the same person (card) is paying for both accounts then they should be able to merge them. I'm not sure though so you'll have to ring them.

If they say no you could always cancel your contracts and set them up again as joint ones. Sounds like a hassle but the perks might make it worth it.

We have to accounts with them, both are in my wifes name but I am paying for my bill and she is for hers. When I tried to do it online it does not gives option to add perks. Is it worth ringing them up. We both are on SIM only contracts. I am on SIM only 30 days while my wife have a SIM only 12 months contract as she was getting more minutes by siging for 12 month. Will it be possibe to add perks on our accounts?

I guess they only assume you are family if both SIMs are on the same account.
It might be worth ringing them and asking them to merge accounts but i'd imagine that the same person has to pay for both SIMs.

Does not apply to my tariff (£7.50),message in my account confirms this, have just cancelled it anyway,trying to find out what sim only tariffs it applies to,will email CS.

good find, heat!

OP is the extra 150 mins, 250Mb or 500 mobile mins you mention shared between both sims on the account?

nawww I was going to post this xDDD

Great deal though. Freeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Nice one. HOT, Thanks, just added 3 perks.

Tesco mobile are very good.you get o2 coverage but at a fraction of the costs.their customer service isn't bad either.have been with them a while now and very happy.heat from me!

Thanks!

Works on my £10/month 500mins/unlimited texts/500Mb tarriff. Thanks!

Great find... and great deal. I have been with them for a while now and have always found that their customer services are excellent.

well I just tried to do it and although I have the option to add family perks it actually shows new allowance the same as the old allowance? seems there's a ceiling on this

Each SIM can have it's own perk. So I've gone for an extra 250Mb of data on my SIM and my wife has gone for extra mins on hers.
I won't be able to use any of my wifes extra mins though. And she won't get any of my extra data.

Hope that answers your question.

Thanks just added 150 to both of mine, cheers mate!

I pay them £15 for 750 mins 5000 texts and 1gb of data, originally with an N8 but now a lumia 800. Pay £20 for the same with mrs and a lumia 800.....now added the extra 250gb on both of our accounts. nice spot OP. It pays to watch their special offers.

They have been great with us and i've been with tesco for 2 years now.

Thanks so much OP.
I've added both 150 mins each to mine and my wife's a/c

Looks like £10 is the cheapest tariff it will work on,Are you on a 12 month deal?

I think the £10 500mins/unlimited texts/500Mb tarriff is 12 months.
I've got the same on a 1 month deal but pay £12.50.

I might switch to the 12 month deal soon but just wanted to be sure that I got a decent signal first.

have you actually added anything by selecting it

really appreciate this op!

This offer is back again!

Just a heads up if anyone is in the North Lanarkshire area, Tesco Wishaw now have a phone shop if anyone is looking to get this deal.

Yep, I got my son his first sim only deal to go with mine. I got him a £7.50 one month deal 250 mins and 5000 texts. Added on 250 mb family perk to both his and mine. Used the deal to keep the contract as short as possible 30 day contract both. You never know a better deal might be available soon, easy to switch!

I'm on the monthly contract too. But to be honest Tesco have been that good, price, customer service, signal and account management, that I might go onto a 12 month deal to save even more cash. I'm dead happy with them so it'd have to be a really good deal to get me to move.

Thanks for posting. Tesco seem to be ramping up on their mobile deals and have found the 'sweet spot' price wise for me and the missus' needs...

I second that on the Customer Service and price,I did look elsewhere after the second service outage this year, but decided to stay based on Customer service. TBH, I do not use half of my minutes or a 10th of my texts on a monthly basis. Will keep looking, but peace of mind is not worth forgoing for a £2.50 or so saving a month

was thinking of adding 2nd sim for wife, if take another deal, any 1 know if i can get a micro sim?

Yes, they do sim only contracts with micro sims.

Hi All.
Just bought 3 contracts with TM - 3 nokia lumia 800 's £15 pm 500mins/5000 texts/500mb of data- rang CS when data allowance wasn't shown on order - was offered upgrade to 750mins :-) plus perks - now changed from mins to data :-) no quibbles !!!

I have just signed up for a monthly rolling contract giving 500 mins/5000texts/1Gig data for £10/month. I now just have to wait for Orange to unlock my Iphone via Apple. I have bought a £5 phone from Tesco as I believe I may be waiting some time...

Tesco-mobile It's a Big Fraud. Spent hours talking to them while ordering two contracts and nothing received after three weeks waiting. AVOID AVOID AVOID TESCO SHOP, TESCO MOBILE, TESCO ETC.FUJ
