This is the same principal as all the cashback deals on here... nothing new to it. Just that you mum is getting an xbox 360 which she probably doesn't need, instead of a wad of cash... !

so she will get one?im thinking its all legit cus she ordered it from carephonewarehouse site.....what do ya do if ya dont recieve it?she reckons shed be within her right to cancel contract if she doesnt as its false advertising etc:?

Yes she will get one. But she needs to read the T&Cs carefully as she might have to do something to claim it, rather than just wait for it to be posted to her. Ducky knows more about these things than I do.

cheers for that well when i ordered the phone for my mum they sed they would deliver it in the same way they did her phone,well impressed they sent phone bang on time 2day..


my minds a lil at rest now:thumbsup: lol

Typical with free consoles or gifts with mobile contracts is that:

Instead of say £420 cashback via 3-5 claims
You get a £150 XBOX 360 core package... on 1 claim

Instead of say £200 cashback via 3-5 claims
You get a £100 Sony PSP... on 1 claim

and etc and etc.... far far far better value to go for cashback claims than the free gift.

also these contracts tend to be really expensive. if you go for a non cashback contract you can get a much better deal for around £10 - £20 a month (I pay £10 for 500 offpeak minutes, 500 texts, 0.5MB wap and 50 x-network minutes). cashback deals charge you about £35 for a similar deal, on the assumption that some people will forget to claim back their line rental!

she will get it, i got one with my contract, with osps, took the contract out in oc, got the xbox mid dec, they waited till the first direct debit had gone through before issueing it, i got cashback too
