Tesco's £30 voucher deal means free broadband for a year
Tesco ups its game with a £30 voucher for customers who opt for its £2.50 per month offer, effectively giving you your money back.
You might just be popping down for some reasonably priced wine and not-too-scratchy bog roll, but spend £30 and Tesco will throw in a year's free broadband with its latest offer.
Okay, that's not quite how it works. Purchase Tesco's bargain-basement £2.50 per month broadband on a one-year contract, and a £30 gift token will be pressed into your clammy little hand in return. That's what I call free broadband.
All you need to do is quote GIFTCARD-A at the checkout and -- here's the only catch -- you'll be walking away with just £13.75 in line rental to pay, per month. Effectively, you're looking at £165 for the whole year. Sounds good, no?
For your money, you're getting up to 14Mbps -- depending on where you live -- and unlimited downloads, subject to a fair usage policy. Visit Tesco's website to check what sort of line speed it can offer you.
After 12 months, the free broadband returns to £6.50 per month on a 30-day rolling contract. The landline offer includes free evening and weekend 0845/0870 and landline calls, no set up fee, the ability to keep your existing number and a wireless router. On top of all that, the
faceless corporate drones kind people at Tesco will reward you with triple ClubCard points on the £195 you've plunked down.
Alternatively, TalkTalk and Plusnet are offering very similar deals (minus the £30 goodie voucher). Check out the likes of uSwitch, MoneySupermarket and BroadbandChoices for more details -- and don't forget to factor in the line rental.
