Three SIM Only ADVANCED plan includes 'Feel At Home' (free roaming in 42 destinations abroad), ability to create a Personal Hotspot (a.k.a. Tethering) and Free calls to Customer Services.

*UPDATE: alternatively @kris1234 was able to get 8GB on an ADVANCED plan with 600 minutes (and assumably unlimited texts) also for £10 per month*

This deal is based on previous HUD posts advertising Three's SIM Only 12 month ESSENTIAL Plan for £9 per month (total cost = £108) which may be found here:
hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…078
and:
hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…875

A few HUD users (particularly on the 2nd link above) were commenting that they were able to get upgraded from the ESSENTIAL plan to the ADVANCED plan for an extra £1 per month (ie £10 per month total) if they were existing Three customers, usually achieved via live chat haggling.

I am not an existing customer so tried several times on live chat to see if they would offer new customers the £10 ADVANCED deal but to no avail, until finally one chat advisor suggested I started a 1 month contract and then tried to upgrade.

So I stopped by a Three store today to sign up for the cheapest 1 month contract I could find (which happened to be the ESSENTIAL plan with 500MB Data / 200 Minutes / All-You-Can-Eat Texts for £9 per month) and picked up a free sim card (and a free nano/micro/standard sim adapter...which was nice!).

When I got home I immediately went to live chat and politely asked to be upgraded from the £9/month ESSENTIAL plan to the £10/month ADVANCED to which the reply was 'No worries at all :)' and told it will be ready to use from 5 days time.

I've checked in 'My 3' online and my price plan has been updated to:

4GB data.
All-you-can-eat minutes.
All-you-can-eat texts.

12 month contract.
Included:
4GB Personal Hotspot, Feel At Home


The same plan is normally £21 per month (total saving per year = £252 - £120 = £132)

Win!

Important notes:
1. The deal includes a £5 monthly discount for paying by direct debit so, obviously, if you aren't paying by direct debit then add £5 per month.
2. The ESSENTIAL plan deal (4GB for the price of 1GB) that this upgraded ADVANCED plan is based on expires tomorrow (10 Nov) night at midnight (see the countdown timer on the three.co.uk homepage). I don't know if that will affect the validity of this deal but I have expired the HUD deal at that time just in case.
3. I didn't bother trying for any further offers (eg Amazon refer-a-friend gift cards, Quidco, Topcashback etc) because all my dealings were direct (either face to face in store or via live chat) but if you want to give it a go then by all means see the links (and the deal comments) at the top of this post.

I'm switching asap from virgin but. want a permanent contract

Currently using this, Quidco tracked at £35 and you also get 3 months Deezer

Edit: I'm on the £9 plan but same applies from above.

I just joined three last week on the £9 plan with no tethering, but i suppose an extra quid for that amount of tethering is worth it so i'll give it a go .. although clicking through, I find live chat unavailable .. DOH!

Great deal
But no guarantee after signing up that you will get the upgrade

Cold. Deal based on a chance it actually happens.

i've just tried it on live chat and was flat out refused.

great tips. just got upgraded to 8gb advanced plan inc 600 minutes for £10. valid from 11 November.

Edited by: "kris1234" 9th Nov 2016

is it worth me trying again then ?

4 gb?...enough to check your emails these days

I was on the old £15 unlimited everything plan until they cancelled it. The first time I asked for it I was refused, rang back the next day and they told me 'no problem'.
All depends on who you get on the day.

How did you get this please? Thanks in advance!

i have asked for upgrade to advanced plan for £10. He said I will check for you. Few seconds later he said he can change for advanced plan with 8GB internet and 600 min for £10. Could not believe really . So I have asked again about £10 a month. He said I will pay £10 for remaining time of my contract until September 2017. Happy days. App showing new plan already.

so I buy the original deal for £9 now from original page and then ask for upgrade...does this have to be done before midnight tomorrow?

I am not sure. I am three customer since September.

What happens to the price after 12 months?

Thanks OP. Will tell my dad about this. We have been Three customers for many years. Hopefully he can get this.

Got this deal when I rang them about 5 weeks ago to get some more data added to a legacy plan. Was offered it after rejecting one worse deal and then a wait while he checked with his "manager" and told me what a great customer I was ! Yeh right

I was offered unlimited data, unlimited texts and unlimited minutes for £19 normally £33
I couldn't refuse a deal like that

​possibly goes back up to normal price of £21.

I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this, but it's effectively an upgrade deal.
it's worth a shot if you already have the £9 a month contract, but it's still down to haggling a deal.

I've voted hot anyway, for those who can get it.

There are apps in the play store if you are on Android that will let you tether regardless

just got the deal 600 mins 8gb data including feel at home for £10 a month

I got offered the same deal now on live chat, 4gb data unlimited min/text. They first tried to offer it for 12£ but I refused. I was on 16£ a month (but had 85£ cashback ) Thanks !

just got the 8gb+600min+hotspot+feel at home for £10! thanks!

livechat unavailable

i tried this at 8am today

bought the £9 essentials from 3 online , 2 days ago which was unl calls, unl texts, 4gb

asked to upgrade and he said i needed to wait for the first bill to be generated before they can upgrade the price plan....

hmm......took him 36 mins to tell me this, wasted time lol

Just tried this on live chat, been on the £9 unltd mins, txts, 4GB data essentials plan for 2 months now. Was initially offered feel at home and hotspot as an addition to my existing plan for an extra £3 per month (so £12), but asked to check again regarding the £10 Advanced plan. Came back with an offer of 600 mins, unltd texts, 8GB data and the Advanced benefits. My plan will be updated and changed over by 19th Nov. Thanks to OP/other posters who have let us know this is possible!

Hi all. Can anyone confirm whether they took out a new essential 12 month sim only @ £9 and then upgraded to advanced 8gb @ £10?

Or, can you only opt for a 30 day deal and then upgrade to advanced from there? I mean its not like they're under any obligation to upgrade you if you've just taken out a new 12 month contract?

I'd like to get the cashback for a 12 monther and then upgrade to 8gb, if that's possible. I guess if it doesn't work I can cancel within 14 days but that seems like alot of hassle.

Paying £17 a month for mine atm, feel a bit stupid now , only up side is the 10gb of data allowence for me

i keep getting told to call the 3 customer services to get this done, their chat guys are rubbish

scoon

I'm 2 months into my 12 month contract with Three on the essential plan. They advised it was a change of plan rather than an upgrade, so your existing contract duration still applies/is unchanged.

just finished a chat with Three and they would let me change to the 8gb plan but needed to pay an early upgrade fee of £75. I only renewed with them last month on the 4gb advanced plan at £9pm. It would be cheaper to buy a data add on as and when i need it.

Ok cool, i'm gonna order!

Best I could get was 8GB, 600min, unlimited texts for £13 per month. Still a better deal than my current plan so I took it.

All I've been offered on the chat was 8gb monthly rolling for 13 and said no, I'm on 4gb for 11 and been for the last 11 months

Do three allow mid contract upgrades? I'm part way though my contract on 2gb data. Would love to be able to upgrade.

I was on a monthly contract and was offered ADVANCED PLAN (All advanced plans give HOTSPOT and FEEL AT HOME)
£10pm - 4GB data, AYCE mins, AYCE texts. You can add on 4GB data at anytime for £5.

Better deal than I was on but they seem to be very inconsistent with their offers.

couldn't get this! I'm on £14 a month advanced for unlimited everything with 3 already and wanted this for my son, just went with the £9 offer for 4GB essential plan in the end as offer ends today
