12 Month Redemption Cashback Claim Dates
Depending on which contract you have taken out, your claim dates may differ slightly. One thing that doesn’t change at all is how the cashback is claimed. Please read the above section for information into how to claim. You will only have a SIM only 12 month contract, we don’t currently offer this length for handset plans. The shorter the contract, the higher the price is. We like to ensure that our deals are as affordable as possible to keep our customers happy.
Redemption cashback has to be claimed for in 5 equal instalments. For anyone on a 12 month contract, you will need to submit your PDF network bill in billing months 3, 5, 7, 9 and 12. You must submit a claim within 60 days of receiving the bill or you risk missing out on the claim. We do suggest putting a reminder in your phone so that you’re able to keep up with these savings. If you claim outside of this 60 day period then you risk not having payment of cashback.
Once you have successfully submitted your claim, you will receive an email letting you know it will be processed. The Fonehouse finance team will process the submitted claim within 14 working days and pay the instalment within 21 working days if accepted.
18 & 24 Month Redemption Cashback Claim Dates
Claiming for cashback on an 18 or 24 month plan is almost exactly the same as claiming on a 12 month plan. The only difference is when you claim for the payments. Just like 12 month plans, you won’t find an 18 month handset plan. This is for the same reason, to ensure our deals stay affordable. There are both 18 and 24 month SIM only plans. If you have either of these contracts, then this is when you need to claim your cashback.
All redemption cashback is paid in 5 equal instalments. You don’t get paid any more for the first claim, we make sure every single claim is the same amount throughout. By the end of the 5 claims, you should have the full balance, as long as all submissions were successful. For anyone on an 18 or 24 month plan, you will need to claim for your cashback in billing months 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18. Make sure that you successfully submit your claim within the 60 day period or the cashback will not be paid. Again, we do suggest you set a reminder in your phone so you never miss the savings.
You will receive an email, letting you know that your submission has been received. Within 14 days, the Fonehouse finance team will process the claim. If accepted, they will pay the instalment via BACS to the bank account given on your order within 21 days. It’s important to let us know of any detail changes so we can avoid delays.
Reasons for rejection
Any claim will be rejected if it\’s submitted outside of the 60 day period. There is no chance for this to be contested. We suggest that customers submit their bills as soon as they receive them from the network in order to avoid this issue. It also gives you a lot more time to solve any other potential issues that arise.
We only pay cashback to customers who are up to date with their network bills. If you are behind on bills, we cannot pay you until it is resolved. Customers who have been disconnected from their network will have orders and cashback cancelled. You will need to have a new, completed order with cashback if you want to continue.
We set our cashback specific to the deals we have on our website. When these deals are changed by the customer or the network, the cashback is affected. We highly suggest not changing your tariff if you want to receive the cashback extra as we will be forced to withdraw any cashback offers if this happens. If you are unsure of any changes to your contract, please contact Fonehouse directly.
When you’re submitting your cashback form, you’ll be asked for a few details. If these do not match what we hold on your order, the cashback claim will be rejected. It’s super easy to avoid this issue as you can update your details with Fonehouse directly. If you need to change anything, simply get in contact with us and we can help.
Cashback can also be rejected if the wrong bill is submitted. As long as you follow the above cashback claim dates, the bill will be correct. Just double check that the bill date you enter on the form matches the date shown on the network bill.
You may notice that we have two different forms of cashback on our website. These are redemption and automatic cashback. You’ll find a huge range of both these extras however, automatic cashback is a little different. It doesn’t allow for as high savings as redemption cashback does however, it requires no claiming whatsoever. It’s one lump sum that we will pay directly to the bank account on your order. After 90 days, our finance team will check that you’re up to date with network bills and process the payment. It’s important to let us know of any changes to your details before this period to avoid delays.
Cashback really is as simple a couple clicks and a reminder. If there are problems with your cashback, you’ll receive an email to let you know within 14 days. If you have any other questions, our customer service team is on hand to answer them. You can find hundreds of amazing cashback deals over on our website.
