Tesco Mobile claims that its existing mobile customers make 80% of their calls to five numbers. With its new prepay offer, these customers will now pay 10p per minute for most of their calls, and 5p for most of the texts they send. Other calls will cost 20p per minute and texts will be 10p each.
Tesco Mobile's new tariff replaces the four existing call plans, in a bid to make life simpler for customers. However, existing customers can choose to remain on their current tariff if they wish. Meanwhile, customers topping up by £15 or more in any month will receive 150 free minutes or 500 free texts - this is over and above their £15 top-up.
Tesco Mobile says the free texts and call-time can be used to contact any UK mobile or standard fixed landline number, regardless of network or time of day. Customers will also earn 4 Tesco Clubcard points for every £1 they top up. The points can be redeemed in vouchers for anything from discounts on the weekly shop, to days out with the family at theme parks and attractions, or even Airmiles.
