Actual price £216?
better 12gb or 10gb deal.. for approx £3 going over quidco and asking double cashback difference
PureGolden27/01/2020 20:24

Yeh its in the description, should be in the title.


Surely we're all capable of dividing £216 by 12?

Presumably you could do the same steps on this as the 10gb tesco deal posted earlier to make it even cheaper?

Go via quidco for £80, then claim double the difference against top cashback making £160 total cashbackl:

£216 - £160 = £56 / 12 = £4.67 / month after cashback.

You can can use clubcard vouchers to pay the bill so great deal except I personally had negative experience with O2 so my plan should have 4G data which I not be able to use as the speed was very slow - for that reason no thanks even if they were given it for free or paying me to use their network.
Smarty sim is only £20 for unlimited everything or £10 for 30 gig so much better than this deal

Very good spot. Have you ever claimed this offer from Quidco? With cashback being unreliable at the best of times I'm just wondering what the liklihood of it working is. One of those mysertious 'retailer has rejected your claim and cannot be appealed' springs to mind...

No I didn't go for the 10gb tesco deal for that very reason. In the past I definitely would have but too many rejected claims these days.

I did the 20gb O2 on mobiles.co.uk deal that expired yesterday instead as that was a guaranteed price, albeit with the faff of sending some bills in for redemption.

I've done highest cashback guarantee claims with Quidco in the past and they're mostly successful. I even managed a £40 bouquet of flowers on mother's day virtually free once (don't tell her!) as the difference between them and TCB came to high 90 something percent cashback! However changes around premium membership and some of the vague clauses in the T&C's such as this would concern me:

A fair usage policy operates with regards to the maximum claim value and number of claims submitted by a member. Should a member exceed the fair usage policy, Quidco reserves the right not to apply the Highest Cashback Guarantee to those claims.

Best bet is to confirm with them on chat then save the log somewhere if you're going to go for this.

I've successfully made them honour a highest guarantee payout for broadband once that I'd confirmed via chat, even though it turned out it that's one of the exclusions in the T&C's.

Thanks for the info. Those T&C's definitely give them wiggle room. Quidco rejecting claims prompted me to cancel my premium membership and go exclusively with TCB. I really don't like this monthly premium thing Quidco has adopted, it just seems designed to confuse people into paying more. If I do go down this route I'll definitely go through live chat first

You also now have to be on the new monthly premium to get the highest cashback guarantee, they've effectivity taken benefits away from existing annual premium members. But I felt that wasn't clearly explained anywhere until I started looking into the other tesco deal and realised it. See my posts on there for more details.

You're right, it wasn't explained because I had no clue! I just got a feeling I was being shafted somewhere in the small print, no surprise that you've just confirmed that. Glad that I've gone with TCB in light on this.
Good deal but good luck getting the cashback! Fed up of both TopCashback and Quidco recently with legitimate claims being rejected and taking months and months to argue. They both just hide behind ridiculous time frames.
Wow, my comment with 5 likes gets deleted because a guy gets triggered when I respectfully challenge the instruction he gives the OP. The same guy that's posted 0 deals. Absolutely pathetic HUKD.
Wouldn’t risk it. Tesco are notoriously bad on actually paying cash back and often decline it for no reason

Actually it shows at the top as Top Comment
This is a great deal.
I am currently with Tesco and am only a few months in to my contract.
I get 9gb for 12.50 and can up it to 20gb for an extra £8 a month through the app on my phone, which is 10gb less and £2 more than this offer

Great info on Quidco there (I would love to see the fairness of these T&Cs tested in court - pay me money & get a benefit with a less than shouted about FUP, that is vaguer than vague - hmm). That said, the bit about the deal you took, while I agree with your choice, you must not bank on any cashback (and more importantly must not encourage others, who perhaps can't afford to gamble, even on odds on favourites ) - all cashback has an element of risk - in the redemption case it us still twofold (excluding that you forget, which is avoidable) - the firm goes bust (yes, not likely with a big name, but big names have over the last few years) or they wrongly reject your claim (I did have a few, I believe with Mobiles.co.uk, that I had to challenge the automatic decision to reject - while relatively quickly sorted, still faff & a worrying wait).

True mobiles.co.uk redemption isn't guaranteed, but at least if you follow the process it should be. Whereas if quidco is rejected you're at the mercy of them or the mythical "merchant referral network" who somehow always seem to be the one blamed by quidco when a payout is rejected!

Quidco and TCB are far from guaranteed, yes.

On mobiles.co.uk redemption cashback, if you follow the rules it should be paid, but is still not guaranteed - mobiles.co.uk could fold (not saying it is likely, I know they are part of Dixons Carphone, but then look at Woolworths, Index, Thomas Cook, etc.).

I do have one query - with limited companies, could mobiles.co.uk go bust without Dixons Carphone going too? I appreciate that the reputational damage to DC would discourage this, but is it possible?
Cashback now restored back to £120, so this deal is back on the table
With smarty at the moment. £10 for 30gb but runs on the Three network so still a few signal issues. Whats this in comparison with Three? Anyone?

You can't claim from both websites when you buy from one. What was meant was that you could claim £80 advertised cashback (at the time) at Quidco and also claim double the difference as per their policy since TCB offered £120 cashback.

Tesco uses O2, so should be better than Three. But depends on your location. Some people feel O2 is bad in their location
