O2 Open discount - does it work for contracts > 24months?

[ Edited ]

Now that O2 Refresh can be customised, extending a contract out to 36 months if desired, does the availability of O2 Open discount also match the term chosen?

 

I notice the recently announced O2 Offers pages default a new Pay Monthly offer to a 36-month contract to keep the figures low...

Anyone tried lately to use O2 Open on a new longer-term (more than 24 months) Pay Monthly contract?

 

From the O2 Open Aug-2016 Ts&Cs page here:

 

   4.10 Airtime Discounts will remain in place for the duration of the Qualifying Contract up to a maximum of 24 months (“Offer Period”). If you leave O2, or your Qualifying Contract is terminated for any reason, including upgrading to a new Qualifying Contract, then the O2 Open Airtime Discount will stop. If you change to a new or upgraded Qualifying Contract, Eligible Employees will need to re-apply for a new O2 Open Airtime Discount meeting all the criteria of joining the Scheme that may apply at that time.

That's an interesting find @pgn. Particularly as some people (like me) would think it was for the duration of the contract!!

You have to be up and about early of a day to pull one over on old pgn, @Cleoriff Thinking

 

I suspect the new Ts&Cs should reflect the "up to 36 months" that O2 offer elsewhere on its website.

I think so, @MI5 - a good exercise for the last Friday in the year.

 

Guess who's up for upgrade early in January...? yahoo

I can confirm that Vodafone give you their equivalent of open discount over 36 months Smiley Wink

That's handy to know, @MI5, especially with the OP6T available on Vodafone for slightly less per month over 24months, comparison below:

I know for a fact, the family plans run "until you next upgrade" as quoted in a text, regarding a 36 month plan.
