Black Friday Broadband

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Broadband Deals

With companies from every sector under the sun jumping on the Black Friday bandwagon, it’s a great time for savvy consumers to bag a bargain.

BT, Sky, Plusnet, TalkTalk and others all announced Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers last November, and we expect them and others to do so again this year.

What are Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

Black Friday and Cyber Monday put simply are a weekend in which retailers slash their prices. The tradition started in America, marking the weekend after Thanksgiving but has since spread across the pond to the UK. In 2018 Black Friday falls on the 23 November, with deals continuing through to Cyber Monday on the 3 December at the very least.

Previously huge price drops had been limited mostly to electronics but over the years have spread to everything from clothing to broadband! This makes it the perfect time for you to not only grab yourself a bargain but save yourself some serious dosh in the months ahead by switching to a cheaper broadband deal.

What broadband deals are there?

All of the major broadband providers are likely to set up deals to help you save this Black Friday weekend. There are a real range of ways to benefit, from basic monthly discounts, to reduced set up fees, all the way through to reward cards loaded up with up to £150 in cash.

  • Monthly savings. One of the best ways you can save is by picking a provider that has cut their monthly prices. Choosing this option will help you keep saving for at least another year. Discounts here typically range from around £2 to £5 a month. Although this may seem small these discounts will add up over time. In 2018 Sky, TalkTalk, Plusnet, Vodafone and BT all slashed their monthly costs.
  • Prepaid reward cards. In 2018 many providers including EE and BT offered prepaid MasterCard’s loaded with between £50 to £125 cash for you to spend pretty much anywhere. A nice little gift to have with Christmas just around the corner.
  • No set up/activation fees. Typically broadband providers charge activation fees or set up costs when you pick their broadband deal. However, in 2017 to make switching nice and easy most major providers including TalkTalk, Vodafone, Plusnet, BT, and EE binned theirs.
  • Free add on’s. Still not satisfied? Some providers add on a few extras to encourage customers to switch. For example in 2017 BT offered customers the chance to get BT Sports HD totally free for 18 months if they signed up to their broadband deal on Black Friday weekend.
