BT & Quidco, are my maths right?

Found 26th Oct 2016
Looking at taking BT Unlimited Infinity 1 through Quidco and was hoping someone could confirm this is right.

BT Price is £10.99 a month (£131.88) for the year
Add Line Rental Saver @ £205.08 for the year
£49.99 Install & £7.95 Delivery makes it £394.90 for 12 months

But will I be able to then claim the £125 Mastercard, £50 BT Cashback & £110 through Quidco? Effectively making it £219.90 (Or £109.90 if Quidco tracks) for the year?

i was just at the checkout and looking for a voucher code and saw this, are you claiming all 3? (quidco £110, master card £125 and the bt £50)
just checked and yes you get the quidco £110 and the card with £120 on it just not sure of the £50 master card

found all 3

£50 BT cheque Cashback (MSE deal) is over on 27th Oct. Isnt it ?

The £50 cashback is instead of Quidco cashback of £110.

You are using a different website to refer you there - Cable.co.uk is the referrer for the £50 cashback. So if you went through that website/refer link (from MSE email I guess?) it would override the Quidco cashback. So it's either get the £110 Quidco or £50 from the MSE link.

It always pays to research those MSE deals, they often replace quidco or other cashback with their own lesser amount.

Also be warned that if you take out the line rental for the whole year and they increase their prices - if you leave early (without paying early leave fees) you cannot claim back the line rental.

I signed up for the deal prior to this one, and the above posters are right, you can claim for the MasterCard and quidco/topcashback or MasterCard/£50 cashback , but not all three.

I saw the £125 + £50 off MSE yes, the £125 Mastercard with the order and it said to claim the £50 from here - vouchers.bt.com/off…ack - When the line was up & running, no mention of a cables.co.uk referral.

"The key to the deal is you get a £125 prepaid Mastercard (which you can spend anywhere that takes Mastercard) and a £50 cheque. BT won't remind you so diarise to use this prepaid Mastercard claim form and cheque claim form. They can take up to 45 days to arrive from claiming."

"As an extra boon, members of specialist cashback websites can be paid when they sign up to some financial products. Do check that it's exactly the same deal though, as terms can be different."

Even if i can't get All 3 the 125 card & 110 Quidco/TCB is good enough, much better than what I'm paying for talktalk.

Under the terms and conditions on that page it says:



So it's either £50 or £110.

If I was you, i'd make a claim for the £50 after you have received quidco cashback. One time I got £120 from both quidco and topcashback when taking out an internet contract, sometimes we get lucky. X)

That was the plan No harm in trying!

Seems BT were able to give me a New line install for free which is nice, no amount of calls to Post Office/Talk talk would get my GPO/Non NTE5 socket modernised without paying the ~£150 Openreach fee despite them advertising it for £25 + VAT on their site.

Yes you can claim it back as they have changed the terms (pro rata of course)

Really? Is this just for BT or has Ofcom made all ISPs do it?

Nothing to do with OFCOM, if they changer the terms you are entitled to it back no matter what they say, there is a thread somewhere on MSE where they got the pro-rata refund from BT but it applies to all the isp's

​but if u pay in advance why would they try and increase your line rental I didn't know they would be allowed to do that. I will need keep my eye on talk talk then incase they charge me extra as have already paid for 1 year upfront.

If they increase the prices like call charges then you are entitled to leave and get a pro rata refund on the line saver even if they say its non refundable as that would be an unfair term in the contract
