Re: Virgin Media Mates Rates for 2012

Correct. I recently noticed that my current package is £3.56 more expensive than the same services would be under the new "collections"pricing. My recent price rise was £3.70. Would anybody really stand for a price increase when they knew they could wipe out the majority of it by changing the price structure applicable to the same services? Only a fool, easily parted with his money, surely?

Re: Virgin Media Mates Rates for 2012

I understood from another forum that it is now £43.01, apparently a discount on £76.96.

Crap would be £0 discount off the normal price, can't really complain that Virgin are still offering something

Re: Virgin Media Mates Rates for 2012

Has it changed again since March? So isn't it still a £33.95 discount?

http://www.306oc.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2175

New customers can get 6 months half price, £140 cashback on Quidco/Topcashback etc.

It's crap because you don't get 6 months free either. you get a better discount signing up online via quidco. This is what I will be reccomeding my mates to do

Re: Virgin Media Mates Rates for 2012

So with the change how will this affect those on the old triple XL based Mates Rates? Does the new deal compare well in trrms of services? Our price went up £3.50 which was annoying - how long will this package last? It was supposed to be at least 18 months/as long as my mate works there?

Re: Virgin Media Mates Rates for 2012

Folk can remain on the old mates rates, its £2 more expensive and you only get basic phoneline

Mates Rates gives you a fixed discount. You are still getting the same discount as before, but the base price has gone up by £3.50.

Re: Virgin Media Mates Rates for 2012

Thank you for clarifying, I will stay on my current version then as I have two TiVo and a V+ so best off not to tinker with the package as knowing my luck someone would change it and I would lose out (though do not need the mobile or international £2 add ons, which I believe I cannot remove without it affecting the Mates Rates discount? Shame as that would wipe out the rise).

Many thanks

MrB
