    Virgin mobile discount

    Virgin mobile discount 18th May 17 at 10:38 AM
    I hope I'm not repeating a question here, but I'm currently seriously considering leaving Virgin Media as other providers offer much better broadband and line rental deals (after haggling with their retention team to no avail).

    I've been with Virgin for a number of years and also have four Virgin mobile accounts, which are really cheap, as I was given a £5 'special discount' per month per mobile as a Virgin Media customer.

    My question is: Has anyone been in the same situation and had their mobile phone discount(s) removed after leaving Virgin Media? I reckon it might just be sales bull, but didn't want to draw the retention team's attention to it by asking the direct question...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, as, if our mobile bills were to go up by £20 pcm, a broadband switch would be pointless!

    I think they are separate companies, so you might be lucky.


    You could just move your phones to plusnet if the price did go up

    As above. But £5 off what price? If that price is still £6 more than you could get elsewhere, then you'll still be better off moving your mobile provider

    I was told I couldnt get a discount with being a Virgin Media customer so I assumed they are run separately.

    How you got the £5 discount I dont know.

    An old deal / contract I expect.

    They sometimes offer discounts for VMedia customers.
