Just wanted to make people aware that the MSE deal "For us, at this data level, this Lebara deal with 3GB/mth of data, unlimited minutes and texts stands out. It's £2.45/mth for the first four months, then £4.90/mth, making it equivalent to £4.09/mth over a 12-month period" is incorrect.

Click on the MSE link, and the Lebara page is a straight £4.90 offer.  I switched to the deal and can confirm that's exactly what you get.  IIRC there was some initial mention of a discount when I signed up but I can't find any mention of it now on their website or in my email records.  I'm not too bothered - not hanging on a line to argue the toss over £5 - but might be worth updating that info.

    When I clicked on the link I saw '50% off first 4 months for new customers. Promotion applied at checkout' in green at the top of the page.
    We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

    Ah, very true, that's where it was.  Discount doesn't actually happen though.  I probably I should call them sometime...

    You should have noticed when the first payment in advance was not the £2.45 you expected and stopped before going ahead, and paying!

    I signed up months back at £5 / £2.50.  Lebara have since then knocked off 10p to be the £4.90 offer. Twice. Me and my better half.

    Last bod with a similar issue went via a different link rather than the MSE one...

    I have signed up to Lebara 3gb deal and the offer was half price for 6 months but have only just noticed that the confirmation email only offers 4 months.
    As pjlill says its not worth the bother to chase and I don't have evidence.

    I have also changed my husband onto the 1gb offer and this time have taken a screen shot of Lebara' s confirmation page which does show the 6 month deal.

    Only reservation I have is we are both on the same network which might be annoying if there is no signal.
