I went on the online chat with them, this afternoon, spent an hour and a half trying to get something sorted. They offered me a reduction of £1.75 on my broadband and £5 on my fibre for 12 months. I currently pay £27.70 per month but the girl tried to tell me with the discount I would be paying £23.45 per month. I kept arguing with her that her maths was wrong, but the chat session timed out. Now I have to go and try it all over again!!

I had a look on Martin's post about the Post office phone deal and he says you can, also I phoned them now and they confirmed you can
However the 5.75 anytime per month is a cracking deal including UK mobiles and some international calls all for the same bundle
Have a look at the pricing area for more information
Also regarding the Post Office Cashback.......'phone packages bit'
Send mail and more with the Post Office. Buy car and other insurance, as well as broadband, currency and phone packages, and earn cashback rewards.arding the cashback here is what it says on Topcashback
However if you phone them you can get three months free for changing on the phone.I will see on Saturday if they accept the value line rental at 120.00 and give Mum 15 months or have to join that close to the end of the three free months(Hopefully they don't jump up the price by then)

I understand from them that the free three months means that you can't have the £120 advance line rental. You can have one or the other - but not both, they say.
No she got both from KAZ
So if you take the free 3 months now, when you come to pay for a year in advance it will have increased from £120 to £144 - taking away most of the saving to be had from the free three months!
Had almost decided to switch - that's probably changed my mind, though!
Any better deals around than the Post Office at the moment for phone only?

Well on Saturday my mother switched to the cracking Post Office Homephone deal and was advised line will be active from 24/11.Yes she received three months free line rental(saving £39) and will see how much the actual yearly line rental will cost.At the moment it is £120 pa
As there is no contract with the Post Office she is free to leave after if the line rental was to increase giving the notice required
I must say that Talk Talk made huge efforts on webchat to try and
keep here with them
They wanted to reduce the line rental to match the PO so offered
£50.20 however were unable to match the free weekends calls to 40international countries and free mobile calls all for just 5.75 per month
This is a decent deal for non broadband customers and people who are happy to pay their paper bill without extra charges for the paper bill and paying over the counter
She however is happy with DD and paperless
I do expect the PO to get quiet a bit of business however while the other main players inflate those line rental charges,it is worth pointing out that the yearly PO line rental is quiet a good saving as it stands
There is also a £20 recommandation sign up bonus(£10 each)if you know of others intrested

Thanks for the follow-up - it's useful. Just out of curiosity, I'd be interested to know if it's possible for your mother, now she's signed up, to take advantage of the £120 pa Line Rental saver, in view of the following increase (they told me it wasn't possible, but that could be wrong):We're changing some of our prices from 5th January 2015
HomePhone Line Rental will rise from £13 to £15 a month.
Line Rental Saver will increase from £120 to £144 pa. This will only affect customers when their current Line Rental saver payment expires. . If you would like to add Line Rental Saver to your account please call us – you can lock in the equivalent of £10/month line rental for the next year if you take this out before 5th Jan 2015.
The Evening & Weekend call package will go up by 25p to £1.50 per month.
