BT offers £120 prepaid Mastercard with fibre broadband deals and TV bundles

Friday, October 27th 2017 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

For the next week, anyone signing up to a fibre broadband deal with BT will get a free £120 reward card.

The reward comes in the form of a pre-paid Mastercard but this won’t turn up automatically – you’ll have to remember to claim it once your broadband is up and running.

In order to qualify you will need to take either BT Unlimited Infinity or BT Unlimited Infinity 2 before 2 November.

BT Unlimited Infinity currently costs £31.99 a month and gives you download speeds up to 52Mbps, online security features including BT Virus Protect and parental controls, and 200GB of cloud storage.

Unlimited Infinity 2 is £44.99 a month and gives you speeds up to 76Mbps, those same online security features and 1TB of cloud storage.

Both packages include the BT Smart Hub, which BT says has the UK’s most powerful wi-fi signal and are on 12-month contracts.

And as well as coming with a £120 reward card, there is currently no activation fee to pay with either fibre deal – although you will still have to pay a £9.99 router delivery charge.

If you don’t feel like you need the extra speed, BT’s basic Unlimited Broadband package is currently £26.99 and gives you speeds up to 17Mbps via a BT Home Hub 4 router.

Like the fibre deals, this comes with no limits on the amount of data you can use each month. You also get online security features and 200GB of cloud storage.

BT broadband customers can add BT Sport to any broadband package for £3.50 a month.

BT Sport has exclusive live coverage of Champions League and Europa League football as well as Premier League and FA Cup games, MotoGP and Aviva Premiership rugby.

Being a BT broadband customer also gives you free, unlimited access to more than five million BT wi-fi hotspots around the UK so you can get online when out and about without eating into your mobile data.

You can get a £120 reward card with BT TV bundles

Under this offer, you can add a TV package to your broadband deal and still qualify for a £120 reward card.

To bundle the Starter TV package and BT Sport in with Unlimited Infinity 1 is £35.49 a month for 12 months.

There is a £50 activation fee on this deal as well as the £9.99 router delivery charge.

The Starter package gives you 20 premium channels and up to 80 free-to-air channels including 21 in HD.

The Entertainment pack and Unlimited Infinity 1 is currently £41.99 a month for 12 months plus a £20 activation fee and the £9.99 router charge.

This gives you 29 premium channels including Gold, Syfy and Discovery, as well as access to the BT TV app and the ability to record up to 300 hours of TV.

BT’s Max TV plan and Unlimited Infinity 1 is £51.99 for 12 months plus a £10 activation fee and £9.99 for the router.

With Max, you can record up to 600 hours of telly, access 60 premium channels and nine kids channels and have the option to watch in Ultra HD.

All of these TV and broadband bundles also come with weekend calls included and access to the AMC channel.

There are alternatives from Virgin Media and Sky

Virgin Media is currently offering 50Mbps broadband for £27 a month on a 12-month contract plus a £20 set-up cost.

Like BT’s deal it comes with a decent router and unlimited usage but doesn’t have an incentive to match the £120 reward card so you’ll have to weigh up whether a monthly saving of £5 a month makes up for this.

You can add weekend calls to this plan for an extra £2 a month.

Virgin’s basic The Player TV bundle is £33 a month plus a £20 set-up cost and includes broadband speeds up to 100Mbps, 79 channels and a TiVO set top box with 500GB of storage.

Until 16 November Sky is offering a £50 reward card with its 38Mbps fibre broadband packages, although you’ll have to pay £59.99 in set up fees.

The unlimited version of this is £38.99 a month or you can pay £28.99 a month if you’re happy to stick within a 25GB monthly usage limit.

The cheapest way to currently get TV and broadband from Sky is to add the Original TV package to that 25GB capped fibre deal.

This gives you 35 premium channels and 250 free-to-air channels on an 18-month contract. There are no calls included and there’s a £29.99 set-up fee to pay.
