    General FAQs

    Some of our offers include cashback, a Gift Card, or a Reward Card, which can be claimed once your service has activated.

    If you signed up via a third party:

    How you claim your Plusnet Reward may depend on that third party's own terms and conditions (alongside the claim process mentioned in these FAQs). However, the reward itself will be issued via Plusnet.

    Occasionally, we offer Plusnet Rewards automatically. That means you don't need to 'claim' them as explained below. Automatic rewards usually happen if you sign up through certain comparison sites, but we'll make it clear in our terms and conditions when you sign up.

    If you signed up via a cashback site, (e.g. Quidco or TopCashback):

    Your reward will be issued from the cashback site. You won't be able to claim cashback from both Plusnet and a cashback site at the same time. (This works on a ‘last click' basis - you'll only be able to claim one of the rewards).

    You can only claim a reward if you've completed an order (taking a Plusnet Reward or Cashback deal). Changing to a different product or deal during sign up may mean you're no longer eligible for the reward, or you're eligible for a different reward. There may be different eligibility criteria, e.g. a requirement to sign up online, but we'll tell you about these when we offer each Plusnet Reward.

    Sometimes, different Plusnet Rewards are available through different channels (e.g. whether you sign up directly via our website, or via one of our partner's sites).

    If you try to sign up for multiple Plusnet Rewards you'll only be entitled to one (normally the last one you've chosen). We reserve the right to refuse to provide any Plusnet Rewards if we think you're deliberately trying to claim for multiple rewards.

    You'll be sent an email to the address you gave when you signed up. You'll normally receive this within 10 working days of your service being activated.

    What to do:

    • Open the email and click on the link (it's valid for two months from the date we sent it).
    • Fill in your details on the form, then click 'submit'.
    • You'll then see a confirmation screen - your Plusnet Reward is on its way.

    You should get your reward within 30 days of receiving confirmation. If you've signed up for an offer which automatically redeems your reward, you'll receive it within 30 days of your service being activated.

    Your reward will be sent either by post or email:

    • Cashback offers are sent by cheque to the address on your account
    • Amazon gift cards are emailed to the address on your account
    • Plusnet Reward cards are sent as a prepaid card to the address on your account

    No, they can only be sent to the postal address or email address listed on your account. Plusnet Rewards can only be issued in the name of the account holder.

    Plusnet Reward Cards
