My brother is thinking of joining Tesco Mobile and we are wondering will the Triple Credit Offer apply to a top-up of a fiver?

No. 10 minimum top-up to qualify for the triple credit.

Thanks.

As he is a light user do the bundles work on Tesco Lite?

No, it's a different tariff that has different (higher) charges.

10 top up and a triple credit means 20 extra credit on top meaning you have 6 days worth of credit based on 60p per megabit. I would advise you top up 20 meaning you have 12 days worth of credit in your phone.

It help if you buy a 1gb data bundle for 7.50 and that can last quite a few days before you use your free 20 and then the paid for top up.

Make sure you top up plenty of credit to make sure you don't run out of credit as your top-up balance runs down very quickly. It's 5.00 per day based on 60p per megabit, so that is just 8 over megabit per day you will use. Keep an eye on it to avoid getting caught out.

Make sure you select a free 150 minutes call bundle before the month starts.

It is likely to cost you a lot of money with Tesco mobile it's not a joke. 10 or 20 per month top up will not be anywhere near enough to cover a full month's usage with tesco mobile.

I'd ask him to go with Giff Gaff which use the same network. 10 a month 'Goodie bag' gives 250 minutes to any network, 1gb of data and unlimited texts.

He doesnt really text much, very internet focused - I know Giffgaff does databags from a fiver so that would probs be better.

Things such as Viber are good subsitutes for texting.
