Virgin Media Bigger Bundle Maxit TV/108mb/Phone Line - £45pm x12 months + £35 install, FREE Nintendo Switch or £150 account credit Term £575

Posted 16th Mar

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

New offer from Virgin Media today - Free Nintendo Switch or £150 account credit with selected bundle (other offers are available for other bundles).

Bigger Bundle includes:
Maxit TV (most TV channels including BT Sport, not including Kids channels which are £5 extra, nor Movies or sport)
100mb broadband
Phone line including weekend calls

£45 per month, 12 month contract
£35 install fee

If you accept the account credit rather than Switch, it equates to £35.42 per month

£45*12=£540 plus install £35 = £575 minus £150 account credit = £425 (£35.42)

TopCashback and Quidco are currently £170 on this package (not guaranteed), so go through there first. If cashback pays out correctly your equivalent monthly cost will be:£21.21 per month

£45*12=£540 plus install £35 = £575 minus £150 account credit = £425 (£35.42)
- £170 = £255 divided by 12 = £21.21 per month

Edit - if you wanted the Switch, according to their FAQs (virginmedia.com/shop/nintendo-switch-faq), it is Nintendo Switch Console, 2 Joy-Con controllers, Nintendo Switch dock, Joy-Con grip, AC adapter, HDMI cable and Joy-Con straps.

Would you get both the Topcashback plus account credit ?

Looks to be the non lite version, from the T&C's:

Nintendo Switch: RRP £279.99. 1 year warranty provided by the manufacturer.

Sorry I can't access the link, is it the one with the white background on box or red background (version 2, better battery)
What if you cancel, can you get the deal then as a new customer?

Not pictured, only a brief mention in the T&Cs. Best bet is calling/live chat them.

Edit:

It's the red background, at least that's what's pictured. I don't think Nintendo sell the old model, and Virgin wouldn't exactly have old stock

I was answering the question about what model switch it was, sorry, I wasn't clear and also should be more helpful . Either Switch or £150 will be indicated on the order. There is no legitimate reason why Topcashback/Quidco cashback should not track correctly and be payable too, but they are always indicated as not guaranteed in case of tracking its other issues.

If cashback pays out, this is a very hot deal.
Don't fall for it . this company is terrible , their contract exit fees are horrendous they like to trap new customers with this kind of 'Shiny' deals . Please have a look to all their user rating online first and you will see the real experience

That doesn't really help as you could say that about every ISP, I have yet to deal with any company that doesn't have at least one a-hole...
FWIW VM are much better than most ISPs as they can give you better bandwidth. I am with them and yes they suck (my landline hasn't worked properly for 3 years and I've been paying for it!), however I ended up taking a hatchet to the BT line and asking for a refund as they keep cold calling me (especially on a Saturday). They even wanted me to pay to stop the cold calls (!?), oh and the "free" calls for just an extra £30/month was the real show stopper for me...

If you don't want a contract exit fee, abide by the terms/length of the contract? Unlike Sky TV, if Virgin put their prices up (very likely announced in July/August for September/October, you have the right to leave penalty free. For Sky, they have just put their prices up close to 10% and you can't cancel as that up to 10% rise is stated in the contract. Virgin also still have 12 month contracts, unlike others such as Sky (18 months) and BT (24 months).

From the pictures on their website and RRP it appears to be this one:

If that is the case, it appears that getting the Switch and a simple trade in for cash (if you didn't want the switch) could be worth more than the account credit? Selling on eBay would get you more if it sold.

You can sell these for £230 + easy on Ebay

Please can you explain further as I have no clue what you mean? For the purposes of this offer, getting the Switch and selling it "should" result in more than £150 credit / though for least hassle £150 may be best for some. If you wanted a Switch, and wanted to play other gamers online, then there would no doubt be other costs involved (even within the first twelve months)?
Anyone done this deal and got the Quidco cash back tracked?
I do not want to risk it without the Quidco cash back confirmation.

a virgin employee informed me that even after the end of the contract you have to pay another 12 months some amount for nintendo.you must carefully check the terms of the contract because the console is not free, as stated in the offer
I will check it out in the virgin store tomorrow...

They are talking nonsense - they can't hold you to a contract for an incentive longer than the terms of the service contract. The terms off the page linked in the original post:


Nintendo Switch or £150 bill credit: New customers taking the Bigger bundle + Movies, Bigger bundle + Sports, and Bigger bundle + Sports and Movies during the offer period from between 16th March 2020 and 11.59pm on 18th March 2020. 12-month minimum term contract applies. You need to pay a fee if you end the service early during your minimum term. May not be used in conjunction with any other offer unless stated by Virgin Media. Availability subject to stock and colour of the device may vary. One reward per household. We reserve the right to withdraw the offer at any time. Prices are subject to change. You must provide an email address when you sign-up. If your email address is not provided or is not valid you will not receive the reward. You will not be entitled to your reward if you cancel your services or downgrade to a bundle lower than the Ultimate Oomph bundle prior to installation or before the end of your 14-day Customer Satisfaction Guarantee period. No cash or other alternative.

Nintendo Switch: RRP £279.99. 1 year warranty provided by the manufacturer.

Virgin Media £150 bill credit: The Virgin Media bill credit will be applied to your first bill. Any remaining balance will be applied to subsequent bills until the credit is used.
Our contract is up this month, we've already asked to cancel everything. Now, can I open an account in my name and pay from my bank account as previously it was all in the wife's name and account?

I left at the end of December and signed up again as a new customer on Sunday. 2 months with Vodafone was enough stress and hassle.

Need to cancel my installation and reorder with the Switch deal.

Really? Every year our household signs up as a new customer, we just have no broadband for 1 day. Just done the 4th year in a row as a new customer

I actually pay less for more
I know they have a bad habit of lying, but I’ve been told that if you cancel your household is blacklisted for 6 months.

When I asked “what if it’s a shared house?” They said the same thing applies.

I knew it was a lie, but I still had enough doubt to stick with them.

Any tips on how to cancel and get a new deal?
