What free gifts are available with broadband packages?
If you’re willing to shop around there are some great perks added to broadband packages including:
Reward cards function like pre-paid credit cards. Money is loaded on the card just like a gift card, that you can use at any of a set list of retailers.
Cashback is pretty simple. If you sign up for a broadband deal that offers cashback as a reward, you'll get the amount specified, in cash, in your bank account, some time after your connection has been set up as confirmed. That's it. All you need to do is keep an eye out for when you're able to claim.
You can occasionally receive vouchers or e-vouchers from retailers like Amazon and John Lewis. These function like reward cards but are restricted to a single retailer.
Free gadgets and tech
Free gifts are harder to come by these days but there is still the possibility you could get lucky and end up with free headphones, laptop, TV or even a games console. This rarer opportunity is more likely to come around on Black Friday so make sure you’re on the lookout at the end of November if it suits you.
While not technically a gift, providers will often offer discounts on certain aspects of your package during promotional periods. This can include waiving your delivery fees, or offering broadband with free installation.
There are two key things to keep in mind when it comes to these kinds of offers:
- First - they're generally time sensitive, so make sure you sign up and claim your device in time
- Second - you should make sure that you're actually getting a good deal, and that it wouldn't be cheaper to get a different broadband tariff, and buy the device separately.

Several providers add incentives to their broadband packages. BT is known for their reward card and sometimes offer an additional retailer voucher. Sky Broadband often offers a prepaid card.

How do I claim my free gifts?
Your free gift won’t be confirmed until you have finalised your purchase and have your connection up and running. It’s best to make sure you have read all the terms and conditions to understand the process of claiming your gift. It’s very common that you’ll have to claim your gift 30 to 90 days after your broadband connection is live. You can usually claim it by filling out a form on your new providers website. Depending on the free gift, it will either be sent to you in the post or emailed to you.
