After the help on here I found for Vodafone entertainment I though I'd post up what I have just taken up.

Ring up for your PAC, they will offer you a couple of lukewarm deals, then await your call back or call 0808 1645456 (retentions team)

I was after the entertainment package - worth £5/month for me spotify (I'm a student) = £60 or £120 d.

So offer 1:

20GB
£21.60/M
Inc ent
4 months credit (£86.40)
Total 12M = £172.80 (already removed 4 months credit)
Av cost per month = £14.40
remove 12M spotify @ £5/M = £60
Cost to me for 12M = £113 or £9.40/M
12M contract

Offer 2:

40GB
£24.60/M
Inc ent
4 months credit (£98.40)
Total 12M = £196.80 (already removed 4 months credit)
Av cost per month = £16.40
remove 12M spotify @ £5/M = £60
Cost to me for 12M = £137 or £11.40/M
12M contract

Even better if you pay full wack for Spotify!

Hope that helps someone.

FYI the Note 8 deals I was trying to get was OK but not enough to tempt me. Best I could get was £47.80/M for 32gb (thats after I have discounted £120 for 24M spotify), no upfront cost.

I don't think retention offers are deals really. As they heavily depend on your own needs and being an existing customer out of contract. Not to mention you miss out on any new customer bonuses.

Not saying retention deals can't be good just that they don't count as a hot deal.

Thanks got the 40gb option, my current sim only was due to end at the end of April.
thank you for posting OP, this gives good indication of what retention deals are available, mine is up for renewal end of feb. Any idea how long before contact end should vodafone be contacted ? heat added

Its 40gb for £16.40, thats better than any new contract I could find, even if you do not include the spotify/sky. Which to many is worth £5-10/M

Nice 1 OP. Good to know when dealing with Voda retentions.
Whilst i loathe Vodaphone with a vengeance, I genuinely love hearing about these retention deals in general. These are really useful to customers who's contracts are coming up for renewal and you can use them as leverage.
Whilst not everyone seems to like these retention 'deals' i find them very helpful and i bet i'm not the only one.

Thanks da_murphster for taking the time to post this.
How did you get this, when I call they don't offer these figures and say that they've "never heard of this kinda discount" before.
To reiterate, my mistake. If you call 0808 1645456 as op has mentioned, they do the deal no problem! Thanks op!

When it drops to minus 20 with no comments or makes you wonder why you bother.

I'm thinking of combining this with the note 8 offer on three to get a nice new note 8 and just not use the three contract
I got my pac code via chat a few days ago but haven't had a call yet. I got the 40gb for £10/month deal on a rolling contract with virgin media but not sure whether to swap over or stay with Vodafone.

When I went to a Virgin store yesterday I've been told that virgin media will be using their own masses etc so they don't have to pay ee to use their network. I've never had any network issues with Vodafone and don't want to leave and lose any retention discount I have, only to find the VM sim is bad!!

Try Vodafone
My deals weren't quite as good as what you got offered but given that they have improved their service in my area recently I think I will be staying with them. Thanks for the tips.
Hi op,firstly thanks for posting this. One question how many months in advance can you try calling Vodafone? Assuming in the last month of contract only? Also do u have to ask for pac code first or can directly try retentions? Thanks in advance
What are people experiences with Vodafone? I moved from 3. The best decision ive ever made. Even in Cardiff City Centre i struggled to get a signal with 3 sometimes. Vodafone are streets ahead.

@da_murphster what Note 8 Three deal are you getting?


Ignore me - I misread a 'nokia 8' deal on here and got all excited. Looks like I'm sticking with my S7 for now

My personal experience was a nightmare. The problem is everyone has their own company disaster, mine was Vodaphone. Its a long tale of woe ending in me taking them to the small claims court and them settling my full £600 claim before i could get to give my account to a judge. They took 2 x direct debits for several years without my knowledge, denied everything, overseas call centres, worst customer service ever.
Anyway, as i have already said, everyone hates a different company, and mine is Vodaphone. Everything is great until it all goes wrong as usual.If they work for you then great. I use EE and think they are great, but others will hate them and so on.....
Best wishes anyway.
Big thanks OP - Just got your 'offer 2' with retentions as my Sim only contract is coming to an end - they called me and initially offered me some rubbish deals. Got put through to retentions and they sorted this. They did say just 3 months credit at first but I just asked nicely and they made it 4.

40gb for £16.40/month + Spotify free - seems like a great deal to me! Thanks!
I’ve tried very hard over the past few days to get new SIMO deal from them but to no avail. Got my PAC and considering my options. One deal I’m considering is e2save £18 deal incl. entertainment pack which after cashback comes down to £10 a month. It’s the hassle of porting the number out and then back again that’s putting me off. Shame that Vodafone is prepared to pay commission to companies like e2save, mobiles.co.uk etc. rather than passing the discounts directly to their loyal customers.

Same here. I've had two 12-month deals from e2save in the last two years but porting the number is a pain. Spoke to Vodafone and asked them to match the deal and they flat-out refused and tried to tell me e2save are a bunch of cowboys and that I wouldn't get the entertainment package if I went with them (a blatant lie). Asked them for my PAC code in the end but still haven't decided what to do.
Thanks always useful to know what the latest offers are when you are coming out of contract
You guys that are not being offered the deal, are you trying the retention team rather than the first people you talk to?
If on my vodafone it says agreement end date 14th January 2018. Does that mean if I use my pac code on the 15th January or after I don't have to pay any cancellation charges/fee.

I will be cancelling the direct debit anyway, as Id rather wait to receive a letter of money owed than them taking a random amount! (It's harder getting money back!)

I just wanted to double check if I have to wait 30 days after the agreement end date, before using the pac code or can it be used straight away.
Thanks
