Monthly tarriff discount

I seem to find a very weird deal on the virgin media website. I wanted to upgrade my current plan and found this unlimited data plan for £25 monthly and it allows me to deduct a monthly tarriff discount for £21.10, lowering down the monthly fee to £3.90. It seems too good to be true and I'd like to know the fine prints to it, which I didn't seem to find a lot of information about it.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Monthly tarriff discount

Whatever mobile discounts/promotions you have at present, are lost if you change your plan.

They may word it like you look like your gonna keep them, but you do not.

If you scroll to the bottom of any Virgin mobile webpage and check the small print in Offers and Extras - you'll see all your offers cease if you ever change your plan.

Re: Monthly tarriff discount

I have just gone through a 12 month contract and just signed up for this new one so I assume my monthly plan would be £3.9 until I changed it, am I right?

i'll be surprised if that discount will last the whole contract.

And that's exactly what I'm thinking of. Can they remove the discount anytime within the 12 month contract even if I don't change it? They didn't include a document about the discount

Re: Monthly tarriff discount

Not sure how you managed to get that deal 🤔

Maybe one reason why the mobile site is down for maintenance at present 🤣

Re: Monthly tarriff discount

You're actually right: I've just tried now and I couldn't purchase the same deal anymore. But earlier today it gave me a whole lot of monthly discount options from as low as £2 to as high as £21 which was really weird. I closed the browser 3x and tried to refill my basket but it was still giving me the options so I went for it. If this turns out to be a glitch and they'll take it back then I'll switch back to my original sim plan and original budget which is the £13 for 15gb and probably upgrade it to the new £13 for 36gb instead.

Re: Monthly tarriff discount

Looks like it was a glitch. I also could see the discounts when adding a SIM but didn't go ahead with it as not needed. It would be interesting to see if Virgin Mobile honour it.
