When you come to retire from Telefónica did you know you could still be eligible for the Family and Friends and Customer Discount? This additional Telefónica Pension Plan benefit allows you to share these discounts with up to 10 Family or Friends and 60 Customers.
So what’s the deal?
- Each retiree will have an allowance of ten discounts available to give Family and Friends as follows:
- 50% off Airtime Plan for custom plan Refresh tariffs (excluding Apple Watch)
- 30% off SIM Only and Direct Standard contracts
- Retirees will be able to give a further total of 60 connections a Customer discount worth 10% off (custom plan Refresh airtime, SIM Only and Direct Standard tariffs) – this includes the balance of existing Family & Friends connections any retiree has (so if a retiree has used 35 discounts at 50/30% already then they will have 25 discounts available at 10%).
- Customers with an existing Family & Friends discount will continue to receive this until they next upgrade.
- All discounts must be requested within 30 days of connection or upgrade.
These discounts are available on core tariff (minutes and texts) only.
Please note the Family & Friends and Customer discounts are not available on Pre to Post Pay tariffs, sharer tariffs and Apple watch tariffs.
So what’s the deal? Sounds great, how do I apply?
The process for requesting a Family and Friends discount for leavers is simple. Providing you meet our eligibility criteria (see below, ‘am I eligible?’) you would then email our VIP team at Telefónicavipsupport@O2.com who will confirm your activated EIN.
Once your Family and Friends are connected or have upgraded, you will need to decide if you want them to receive one of your ten Family and Friends (50% off custom plan Refresh Airtime or 30% off SIM Only/Standard Direct tariffs) discounts or if you want to give them one of your sixty Customer discounts (10% off custom plan Refresh Airtime or SIM Only/Standard Direct tariffs).
