Hi everyone, just double checked this on our end as well regarding the O2 discount - it is indeed serving forces only that get the discount, so looks like that's why it was not working for you @alidon. If you are active though and there's still a problem, the Armed Forces HR might be able to help with more info.

 

Cheers for posting that link @DaveA. slight_smile

Thanks Hughes,

 

do you know if you still get a discount as an army veteran?

You need a payroll number and valid email address so it's doubtful ?

It's worth asking customer service but I too doubt it. Once upon a time there was a discount for veterans but I think that was discontinued when the O2 Open was introduced.

If you are a genuine veteran you can join https://www.defencediscountservice.co.uk where you'll find information to obtain the O2 Open discount you are referring to.

Well that's just typical, I moved over to O2 mainly because they offered the discount.  As a medically discharged veteran I'm somewhat let down by this.  Especially as I have just upgraded because of all of this.

This isn't clear regarding vetrens, the defence discount card is available to vetrens and the o2 offer points you towards a vault code which you can then apparently enter somewhere in o2 to get the discount. However as we know, the o2 site only accepts wage slips/military email address. This is further confused by a manager of an o2 shop who told me that vetrens DO get the discount, they just need to upload  a photo of their defence discount card, which is o e reason I went with o2.

@Ads_1980 

Looks like you should contact the sales team as they can help with that – message them on Social Media if that works best for you -on Facebook (https://o2uk.co/O2CFB) , Twitter (https://o2uk.co/O2CTW) or Instagram (https://o2uk.co/O2CIG)

Or you can call them on 0800 081 0255
