Get 200MB of data free every month with Three Data Reward SIM

Wednesday, January 31st 2018 by Mike Whitehead

Like the last slice of pizza or a test drive in a Ferrari, can any of us ever say no to free mobile data?

Admittedly the latter option is not quite as tasty or sexy but has become more of a necessity so when it’s free we’re definitely interested. As more and more of us are using up our data on video downloads or copious selfie-image uploads an extra 200MB in our kitbag will always come in useful.

As an example of how useful, 200MB is the equivalent of 2,000 Instagram posts, web browsing across 200 pages or downloading 44 music tracks from Spotify. So, quite useful wouldn’t you agree?

The very nice people at Three recognise how important our data is to us and are offering 200MB free data every month as part of its pay-as-you-go Data Reward Plan. All you need to do is fill out a simple order form online at the Three Store website and you will receive a trio SIM card through the post in around three working days. So, whether you need a standard, micro or nano SIM, you can pop out the one you need. Once received, register your SIM and the data is yours.

You can order your SIM pre-loaded with 1GB of data, 3,000 minutes and 3,000 texts for £10, 5GB for £15 or for big data users 12GB for £20 (same minutes and text allowances). There is also no extra cost for 4G with the Data Reward SIM, as long as it’s being used in a 4G device and in a 4G area it will work like clockwork. The data lasts for one month, if you use it all you can top it up as you see fit.

20GB of data for £20 a month on BT

If 200MB of data sounds like chicken feed to those with larger browsing appetites, BT Mobile is currently offering a SIM-only deal with a mammoth 20GB of data, unlimited minutes, texts and BT wi-fi for £20 per month, reduced from £22. This, appropriately named, Ultimate SIM Plan also comes with an £80 BT gift card and free access to BT Sports through its app.

You can also include a family SIM package, adding up to five SIMs in total for £69 per month, a reduction of 37% on the pre-offer monthly price.

If you're looking for a happy medium between a healthy data package without drawing too much on the purse strings, Virgin Mobile currently offers 5GB of data, 1,500 call minutes and unlimited texts for just £9 per month. That’s five times the data allowance offered by Three for £1 less per month. Virgin also offers a rollover facility for any unused data from one month to the next.

In comparison with the offers from BT and Virgin Mobile, Three’s Data Reward Plan begins to lose its appeal. While these plans require a 12-month commitment they offer far better value for money overall for those of us who regularly use in excess of 1GB of data each month.
