Found 21st Feb
My mobile phone contract was due for renewal today, I already had broadband with 17 month left on the contract ....ended up with the following as part of the deal..

The 50gb offer is currently £30 on the Vodafone website

I always chat about deals with vodafone using their online chat support , because you can email a copy of the transcript to yourself after the deal has been struck.....so you have a record of exactly what was agreed.....I highly advise keeping a record of the transcript....it will pay dividends in case of a dispute about discounts and the offer agreed.

I had to play hardball and go all the way through to the PAC code people so I could move my number to another company.

As soon as I was transferred across via online chat support , the deal was offered.

My Vodafone current broadband deal was reduced to £19.00 a month for 76mbs fibre (was 24.00)
1 month free broadband
£35.00 credit to my account.
£21.00 a month for 50 GB mobile data , unlimited mins / text :- red package choice of spotify / now tv etc.
1 month free mobile

which in my mind works out at £21 * 12 = £252 minus the following.

broadband discount = £60
1 x free broadband = £19
£35 credit
1 x free mobile = £21
comes to :- £135 worth of discounts

so £252 - £135 divided by 12 = £9.75 a month for 50 GB with unlimited minutes and texts.....

Not a bad offering....not sure when I will use all the data , but hey , I will not be running out anytime soon.

Great deal, but dude..those calculations are so dodgy.
Can't mix the broadband discounts and side them to the phone just to create a better offer.
I see maybe £35 free credit (depending on what they stated that for broadband or mobile)
and
1 month free, so £21 credit.
Total = £56.
The other discounts are for broadband.

£252-£56 = £196
/12
=£16.33 for the sim with 50gb / unlimited calls/texts

...definitely not £9.75 a month

You are fiddling the numbers to make your deal sound more appealing... Akin to optimistic sales forecasts to increase company value.

As stated earlier by @rapid111111

You must have Vodafone broadband to have any chance of getting this deal. The reason being they get to fleece you for £20 for that too alongside the mobile deal.
For argument's sake... Let's say they threw the SIM in for free because you had the home broadband, would you describe your deal as

Free sim only deal - 12 months free \ unlimited minutes \ 50gb data \ free Spotify etc ?

The fact that you are paying for the home broadband anyway makes it a good deal for you overall and may be of some help to other Vodafone mobile and Vodafone home broadband customers but that is where the usefulness to other people ends.

So bottom line... You need to mention this in your title so people without Vodafone home broadband can get on with their life

I am struggling to understand why you can't see that you need to mention the Home broadband in the title if that is the only way to get this deal.

It may seem misleading to you, but to me it makes perfect sense.


it was bought as a package, someone can't really get that deal without having both broadband and mobile.
Advertising it as a sim only deal is misleading.

true , but even 50gb is too much for my needs , I tried to haggle them down to a 25gb offer at around the £16 mark , but they said it had to be the 50gb deal...good thing with vodafone you are allowed to tether , unlike for example Virgin who say you cannot , but people still do...

Considering I'm paying around 16 quid a month for 10gb of mobile data I'm glad they didn't bloody accept 25gb lol I'd have been fuming!!

I always look around to see what the best offers are before heading into chat about my mobile contract with Vodafone, I think the biggest competition for Vodafone currently is Virgin mobiles £20 for 100gb, so they are offering up great deals for current customers.

not really opinion bro.
it stated there are discounts for broadband and it also stated there are discounts for mobile.
doesn't make sense to throw all discounts to mobile and create a single price based on that.
based as a package, which how it probably should be done, is great.
Seems misleading to say it's just for the mobile line.

the calculations in singling out the sim only are wrong.

I left Virgin after 10+ years (who wanted £42 for 100mb broadband,no TV package) and went to Vodafone broadband, Service is excellent ,constant 70mb+ download speed for £24, Customer services has been ecxellent

No problems with Vodafone home broadband here.
I got a retention deal from Vodafone yesterday...

20gb SIM only for £16/month and haggled to get 1st month free so works out £14.66/month over the 12 months.

Could have paid less overall by switching to PAYG with another provider and then re-joining Vodafone on a cashback deal but thought this was OK to avoid that hassle. I can only get a signal at home on Vodafone and O2 so moving to a 3/EE signal was not an option for me.
So you paying £40 for home phone, broadband and sim only tariff....right....how is this £9.75 a month?

I've no idea whether your deal is good or not - but the people have voted and the consensus is: calm down!
Should it not be PAC code not PUK code?
Steeljedi1 m ago

Should it not be PAC code not PUK code?


True , I shall update the text on the deal , I mixed it up with PUK

A PUK or 'Personal Unlocking Key' is a security feature on most mobile devices that protects your SIM card data. The PUK code is unique to your SIM card and is required when a SIM Card PIN code has been entered incorrectly multiple times.
This can not be legit and shouldnt exist as a deal, can any Admin weigh in?

Be ok if OP said home broadband and phone blah blah for X AS when you call up about your broadband they will say you already have offers...
