MSE published a deal for a Sim Card by iDMobile with a nudge factor of a £45 gift voucher if signed up by 2 June 2023. I did that but have yet to receive any information, after repeated requests, until last week and today, sparked by my 3* rating on Trustpilot. Today’s info was to tell me that the voucher obligation and funding came from MSE and GiftCloud, nothing to do with iDMobile!

    I did the sign up as well, I’m sure it said after 3 months you will be contacted by E-mail on how to activate your voucher.

    Yas yours been 3 months yet as just says you did prior to the 2nd June.

    I Joined early June so expect the E-mail in the next 10 days, mind I get so much spam there is a chance I have / will delete(d) it

    This has happened to me twice now on two accounts set up via MSE, and neither has been honoured. If you email the address ([email protected]) given in the original email it is never responded to. After a protracted conversation with their webchat, I was told to go to my local Currys (who own IDMobile)! 

    It feels like a huge con and I think that MSE should not be recommending them any more.
