Nowhere to be found when you're signing up via the website. This is a deal that BT have buried and hidden away to try to stop you finding it - simply because it's so much cheaper than their ordinary price, which is £18.99 pm for the line rental alone, and another £9.50 pm for unlimited calls - £28.49 altogether, excluding any add-ons. The price is also fixed until 2020.

The details:


Just want a telephone service from BT? Home Phone Saver is our exclusive telephone-only plan that bundles line rental, calls and features into one neat package for just £21.99 a month.

What’s more, we guarantee the price of your Home Phone Saver will stay the same until 2020.

What you get:

Your monthly line rental
Unlimited calls to UK* landlines at any time, for up to an hour
Inclusive calls to 0845 and 0870 numbers at any time, for up to an hour
1000 free minutes to BT Mobiles (excluding BT Business Mobile)
Free 1471 Call Return >
Inclusive 1571 Call Return if you have the BT Answer 1571 voicemail service >
BT Privacy with Caller Display, Call Minder with Enhanced BT Call Protect, International Premium Rate Call Barring and up to seven useful calling features for free when you opt-in
Anonymous Call Reject will be provided if BT Call Protect isn't available in your exchange
The price of other calls not included in your package may change during the price-freeze period
You can pay for Home Phone Saver 2020 by any means of payment that we currently accept.

Home Phone Saver 2020 is a telephone only deal, so can't be taken out as part of our BT Broadband or BT Infinity packages.

How do I order Home Phone Saver 2020?

If they didn't want it to exist, it wouldn't. Weird thing to say
Reliable? BT?

Don't be silly now.
You need to call BT as my Mum pays £15.50 every 3 months which includes line rental

I believe they may have to offer certain products by law...they don't have to advertise them or make them easy to get. I could be wrong. When I went searching their site, these were all the deals that came up for landlines:

That's BT Basic - a great deal, but unfortunately you have to be getting one of these benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Pensions Credit (Guaranteed Credit)
  • Employment and Support Allowance (Income related)
  • Universal Credit (and are on zero earnings).

That's why it's hidden away. This will go very cold because it's BT, fair enough, but actually it's an unbeatable deal for anyone wanting just a landline with calls included - like many pensioners. It isn't restricted to low income customers - just hidden away to stop the majority finding it. If this helps a few people find a low landline rental - great. Job done.
thanks , will call BT for mother in law

we pay £19 a month for line rental and it's only used for broadband
hopefully we will get rid altogether soon now that 4G data is getting cheaper.
Cannot wait to be finished with BT. If nothing else, i am supremely confident I can find equally abysmal Call Center "tactics" at a much cheaper price.

The OfCom review means that landline-only customers automatically get £7 discounted from their bill, but it doesn't come into April this year. The Phone Saver deal is just a deal.
What's wrong with a mobile for £1 a week?
If they fall over they might be metres from a landline

Not that simple, I'm afraid. You have to be getting one of these benefits to qualify, even if you're a pensioner:

Income Support
Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
Pensions Credit (Guaranteed Credit)
Employment and Support Allowance (Income related)
Universal Credit (and are on zero earnings).

My mum is 70 and phoned to enquire about the basic plan. She currently £18.99 rental + £3.50 per month free evenings and weekend calls. And she is on phone constantly those times. They said the call charges on basic are really high and if she wanted to use phone way she currently does it would cost a fortune. The basic plan is really just for someone who rarely going to use it, more for the ability of family/friends being able to contact them.

Has she switched to this deal? It would save her 50p pm as well as allowing her free calls at any time of the day, any day of the week.
