Sometimes, broadband providers introduce special offers that give you cashback, prepaid reward cards, and TV channels with your internet connection.
These gifts might come in the form of a cheque, rewards card or a voucher - but either way, you’ll get a bit of extra money just for switching your broadband.

How do cashback and reward cards work?
With cashback, you’ll receive a cheque in the post. Reward cards, on the other hand, are prepaid cards with money.
Here’s how they work and how to claim them:
Cashback - Once your broadband is live and you’ve submitted your claim, the provider will send you a cheque in the post. You can then cash it into your bank account.
Reward cards - These are essentially pre-paid credit cards loaded with money. Once you’ve claimed your card, it’ll be posted to you, and you can use it in shops to pay for all your normal purchases. They can be used at most retailers that accepts the right credit cards.
Who does broadband cashback deals?
Providers who offer cashback, reward cards, and gifts include BT, Sky and TalkTalk. These rewards can come with all sorts of packages. That includes standard ADSL broadband, fibre broadband, and TV deals.
Providers that may offer cashback include:
All that said, cashback offers don't last long. A provider may have a fantastic deal on one week and nothing at all the week after. Always check your postcode for the best current offers and go from there.
There are even some mobile deals that come with cashback, usually contracts on handsets. Compare mobile contract deals here and keep an eye out for cashback.
How do I claim your cashback or reward cards?
Most providers won’t send you your gift automatically - you’ll need to go and claim it. You can usually do this via the provider’s website by filling in the online form. Make sure you have all the right info to hand, including the email or letter confirming your new broadband.
In most cases, you can only claim cashback, rewards, and vouchers within a certain time period after your broadband connection is live. This might be just 30 days, or as long as 90 days, depending on the offer.
Once it’s claimed, your provider will post your cheque or card off to you. It’ll arrive at the address where your broadband is live, made out to the person who holds the broadband account.
Sometimes, e-vouchers may be emailed to you rather than posted. You’ll need an email address and access to a printer in order to use them.
