Accidently saw on one of their marketing leaflet. Rang 150 from landline and done straight away. Can be paid by Credit/debit card. Swapped some TV channel package to reduce monthly payment and operator gave other £2.50 pm discount for next six month.

See their description below from website.

In a cable area and want to save money on your line rental? All you have to do is pay 12 months line rental upfront for the discounted rate of £144, and you’ll save £47.88 over the year.

It’s that simple.

What’s more it’s as easy as speed-dialling a pizza. Just call us on 0800 0643840 to place your order and start your line rental saving.

Your line rental then appears as £0 on your bill along with your 12 month end date. But don’t forget, normal rental costs apply after the 12 months – unless of course you pay upfront next year and carry on saving again.

Snap!

Must be nuts to indicate to any service provider that you are potentially willing to commit yourself to another 12m service and lose any possibility of a discounted retention offering.
Obviously if you're in the early stages of an 18 month contract then a 12m prepay may be cost-effective, otherwise usually find the best way of maximizing savings is to threaten to leave, even if you are happy to pay up to full price for a service. A retention offering would normally more than compensate for the otherwise minor discount gained from annual prepay. The worst you can be told is no retention discount, but VM tend to be willing to show extreme flexibility, especially if you can quote a credible competitive Sky deal to them.

If you are out of contract then best thing to do is try for a retention deal and when you are happy with that then do the line rental saver.

While its always good to save money and I'm not knocking the op for letting people know, its worth pointing out that I only paid £120 last year. As mentioned its now £144 - a £24 or 20% increase!! The line rental has increased from £180 to £191.88 - an £11.88 increase, so why are VM slapping on another £12 on top of that? Tried ringing VM to see if they could lower, but they wouldn't budge.

Yes - get a retention deal THEN do the line saver as likely in for 12 months anyway... double savings.

This package is still available if you pay upfront for L/Rental but need to be new customer or returning one - 152mb broadband ,Phone Talk iwknds+ free anytime calls (6mths)1tb Box,Extra HD Box, Big Kahuna package,BT Sport,Netflix(6Mths)12 Month Contract,Free Install....If you pay the L/Rental upfront(£144) its only £20 per month....:)

Yeah deal still available.
I just referred my next door neighbour. Only difference being the unlimited calls was included for the full 12 months. It's £33 if your not paying line rental saving upfront, so a £12 saving for this deal.

Definitely recommend it if your looking to join Virgin.
