How long do email offers last?

Got this offer for BT Sport today which I would like to take up when champions league starts. Nothing about date offer is valid until. Will the offer still be valid in 20 days time?

Re: How long do email offers last?

Are there any small print or T&C below the graphic on that advert? I'd expect details such as offer expiry, in there somewhere.

Plenty of small print, no expiry date.

Hi knowing virgin if you don't strike while the iron is hot,I'm sure it won't last, i think I detect you want it for a specific match then give 30 days notice, you might be better using a Now TV stick. Regards Micky

BT sports isn’t on Now TV. I want it when Champions League starts on 20th October 2020 until Mid-May 2021.  Prior to that there is nothing on I want to watch, but I would be better off with £12/month offer than the £25/month direct from BT.

No.  T&Cs state

"BT Sports must be kept for at least 30 days but can then be cancelled on 30 days' notice at any time."

Looks like it could be a gamble then. You could wait until the day before your match, and the offer could still be there - you could try it next week and it's gone.

I can't see an expiry date either, just a few littered references to "may change at any time"

Re: How long do email offers last?

I would tend to agree with @Anonymous here.

I think you’re quoting standard Ts&Cs when you’re paying the standard £18 per month.

Your initial attachment for the offer clearly states that the £12 price is for 18 months. You can’t have your cake and eat it.

No, I am quoting the text that is on the email.  What is your problem? Whenever I post I get smart Alec answers.  Cake?
