Top UK broadband and tech deals: round-up of this week's best offers

If you want an extra sweetener from your next broadband package or more bang for your buck when buying new tech, these deals may help.

If you’re considering buying a new laptop, upgrading your tech stash or switching broadband, you could save a lot of money – or get some enviable goodies.

Here's a look at some of the best broadband and tech deals currently on offer.

Get a £125 John Lewis gift card

John Lewis & Partners is currently offering a gift card worth up to £125 when you buy selected items or spend a total of £1,000 in-store or online on home.

There's a lot of fine print to go through on this one, so let's start by pointing out you have to spend the money in a single transaction (if you're spending £1,000) and that this deal is only valid until 19 August.

While £1,000 is a lot to spend, there’s a lot of eligible electrical items included in the offer such as laptops, cameras, dishwashers, fridge freezers and cookers.

As mentioned, you don’t necessarily have to spend £1,000 as some eligible items are a lot cheaper than a grand.

For example, the cheapest eligible item in this offer is a Dyson purifier fan for £299, which you can claim a gift card for.

Obviously, it goes without saying that you should only buy stuff you truly need, so don't use this as an invitation to spend recklessly.

Members of the My John Lewis loyalty scheme can claim a £125 e-gift card, while non-members can claim one worth £100.

Mobile deals

Free PS4 bundle worth £300

Virgin Media is currently offering a free PS4 with Fortnite bundle worth £300 when you buy a Sony Xperia 10 phone on a monthly contract costing £20 a month (for three years).

For that monthly sum, you'll get 1,000 minutes, 1GB of data and unlimited texts.

You’ll end up paying £720 over the course of the contract, and the phone itself can currently be bought for around £250.

So think carefully whether this deal is right for you or whether you'd be better just buying the tech separately and choosing a suitable, cheap SIM-only contract.

This deal is only available as long as the PS4 bundles are available.

Get £25 cashback with a Vodafone SIM card

You can grab £25 cashback when you buy a Vodafone Multi SIM card from Carphone Warehouse, which costs between £23 and £20 a month, depending on your plan.

These SIM-only deals are subject to a 12-month contract and come with unlimited data, minutes, texts and 5G, so the maximum speed mainly determines the price you pay.

Broadband deals

Free Xbox One S or Samsung Galaxy Tab A

Broadband is a hefty, yet necessary, expense – but it doesn’t mean you can’t get any good deals or extra goodies.

BT’s Season Flash Sale is currently ongoing until 15 September, but this date of any expiring offers could change.

BT currently offers customers the choice of receiving an Xbox One S or a Samsung Galaxy Tab A with select broadband and sports bundle.

There are two broadband deals that qualify for this free gift, which are:

  • BT Sport on Sky TV + Superfast Fibre (£51 per month, 18-month contract)
  • BT Sport on Sky TV + Superfast Fibre 2 (£55 per month, 18-month contract)

It also appears that you can also get a free £60 or £80 BT Reward card with these packages, but we advise you check before buying.

If you don’t mind missing out on the sports package, you can get up to £130 in rewards with certain BT fibre broadband packages.

The most generous deal includes an £80 BT Reward Card and £50 Marks & Spencer gift card when you buy BT Superfast Fibre 2 for £40 a per month on an 18-month contract.

This deal, as well as several others, expire soon.

Free Amazon Echo Plus

Vodafone is offering an Amazon Echo Plus for new customers who purchase the Superfast 1 (from £21 a month), Superfast 2 (from £27 per month), or Gigafast broadband (from £28 a month).

To be eligible for the Amazon Echo Plus (worth £140), you must purchase your broadband directly from Vodafone by 13 August.

Similar to other offers, the free gift is subject to availability.
