How to find the best broadband deals with cashback, free gifts and vouchers
If you're looking to get a bit extra for your money with your new broadband deal then you're in the right place. In the list above we show all the special offers - from cashback to free gifts - currently available.
Before you do anything else, make sure you put your postcode into the checker at the top of the page as not all broadband deals will necessarily be available where you live.
Broadband deals with special offers can go quickly so don't miss out
It's worth remembering that once you've spotted a deal you like, you'll need to move quickly. Many special offers are only available for a short time, so if you decide to go and have a think about it, when you come back it may well be gone!
Having said that, don't be so blinded by the temptation of free cash that you don't check all the details. Always look at the length of contract, the price once the contract is finished, as well as any upfront fees. Sometimes these things can outweigh the value of the deal.
Vouchers, free gifts and cashback available with broadband deals
The BT Reward Card is one of the most well-known free gifts with broadband and is pretty much always on offer. However, it can vary in value, often changing from week to week, so it's worth keeping an eye out to see if it goes up.
BT Reward cards are essentially prepaid MasterCards and can be spent anywhere that MasterCard is accepted – either online or in highstreet shops.
Straightforward cashback is frequently on offer with Sky broadband and TV deals. Once you've bought your broadband package, you will be sent a cheque to cash in to your bank account.
Free gifts and tech
This is a bit special and a bit rarer, although occasionally some real bargains do appear. Laptops, games consoles and TVs have been up for grabs in the past, but bluetooth speakers, headphones and tablets also appear from time to time. Black Friday in particular is a good time to watch out for these.
Broadband providers offering free gifts
It generally tends to be the same few providers that offer free gifts - and that's the more expensive ones. Sky offers gadgets or cashback, Virgin Media offers gadgets, TalkTalk offers vouchers or cashback, and BT of course has its Reward Card.
John Lewis Broadband and Vodafone are also ones to watch for cashback offers, but you are unlikely to see freebies with the likes of NOW, Post Office, SSE or Plusnet.
How to claim your free gifts
In many cases, free gifts or cashback will be sent out to you automatically once you have placed your broadband order, although you may well be given a window in which to claim it - whether that's one month or three months.
One notable exception to this is BT; you have to make the claim yourself. Once you've bought your broadband, BT will send you an email with all the relevant information in it in order to make your claim. You will then have to visit BT's claims website and key in those details before BT will send out your Reward Card.
