BT Reward Cards are back on the BT Broadband range

The BT Infinity 1 service was revamped last week to increase the package speed from up to 38 Mbps to up to 52 Mbps and this is now backed up by the return of the BT Reward Cards for new customers ordering online before the end of 28th April 2016.

The BT Reward Card is as usual a prepaid MasterCard that you can claim once the service has gone live and varies in value from £25 on the cheapest ADSL2+ service through to £125 on Infinity 2, 3 & 4.

The pricing is unchanged from a week ago, so Unlimited ADSL2+ is £7.50/m for 12 months plus the £17.99/m line rental with a £50 BT Reward Card (after 12 months broadband rises to £18/m). Or you can add the TV starter packwith the basic YouView set-top box for no extra cost in the first 12 months with the broadband price after 12 months rising to £22/m.

For those chasing the Infinity (FTTC/VDSL2) products, Unlimited Infinity 1 with its £100 BT Reward Card is £12.50/m for 12 months rising to £25/m after the 12 month contract with the £17.99/m line rental applying from month 1. Infinity 2 is its usual £30/m plus £17.99/m line rental and has a £125 reward card. We know some people have seen Unlimited Infinity 1 at a higher £20/m but this is because depending on your journey to the BT site you can sometimes see different prices, so be sure to click the Infinity 1 link above to get the £12.50/m price.

While Ultrafast Infinity 3 and 4 are available for just under 1% of UK premises where Openreach FTTP is available, they still qualify for the highest value £125 BT Reward Card. The FTTP products carry an 18 month contract rather than the usual BT 12 month contract.

For those chasing a 4G SIM only deal, there are £10 to £40 iTunes or Amazon Gift Cards up for grabs. The 2GB 4G data allowance service for those joining online who are not BT Broadband customers also has a price offer running of £11/m rather than £15/m for the 12 month contract period.


Why oh why do they have to make things so difficult?

If the upload speeds are listed anywhere on that site, they've certainly hidden them well enough that I can't find them by clicking around.

Given the infinitesimal upload speeds on plusnet fibre products, I need reassurance that the BT product has decent upload speeds.

Andrew, thanks, but that really isn't the point. What does it say about BT that they think upload is so unimportant that it is never mentioned on their promotional page?

In theory, I could find myself on 2mbps upload (like PlusNet) and I couldn't complain based on the contents of BT's page and the linked pages. (I know that won't happen, but it's mad that BT don't include it on the page.)

Is there any way of finding the reduced infinity 1 price via the BT website?
I'd like to combine the reward card with quidco but when following the quidco link it arrives at the page showing £20pm.
