Orange Voucher Code: Up to £240 off (£10/month discount) on 24-month Pay Monthly Contract

March 28th, 2011

Orange has launched a new voucher code offering a discount of between £181 and £242 on a 24 month Pay Monthly contract.

Deal Finished: This voucher code has expired and no longer works. You can still click through to the Orange website and purchase as normal but this voucher code will not work.

If you’re looking to buy a new Pay Monthly contract on Orange, you could save between £7.56/month and £10.10/month on high-street prices by buying online and using a voucher code (expires 3rd April 2011). In this article, we outline how you can obtain your discount, some of the phones available on Orange and how you can keep your existing phone number when you switch to Orange.

How much is the discount?

The voucher code offers a £5/month discount on 24-month Pay Monthly contracts of £20/month or above (adding up to a saving of £120 over the 24 months). Combining this with the online discount which is offered on all tariffs of £25/month and above and you could save up up to £10/month compared to high street prices. This amounts to £240 over the course of the contract.

The exact level of saving depends on the cost of the contract you select:

Monthly Price Voucher Code Saving Online Saving Combined Monthly Saving Total Saving (24 mo.)
£20.42 and below
£25.54 to £35.74 £5.00/month £2.56/month £7.56/month £181.44
£40.85 and above £5.00/month £5.10/month £10.10/month £242.40

For example, using the voucher code and the online discount, a £25.54/month contract would be discounted down to £17.98/month for the life of the contract. This amounts to 30% off or the equivalent of 7 months free line rental.

Unfortunately, the online discount and voucher code cannot be used with BlackBerry or iPhone tariffs. It can be used with other smartphones such as Android smartphones or phones running Windows Phone 7.

How do I use the discount code?

  1. Select a phone from the Orange website
  2. Pick a plan. The Dolphin plans are generally the most popular plans and provide the best value: you’ll get unlimited texts and internet included. Panther plans offers access to Orange Maps and bundled photo messages but tends to be more expensive. You must select a 24 month plan to use the voucher code.
  3. On the checkout page, click on “Enter promotional code”.
  4. Enter the code PROMO120 in the “Discount code” box. Note that the code is case-sensitive. The code expires on 3rd April 2011.
  5. Click on “Get discount” and your discount should be applied.

Note that the voucher code is not valid with Blackberry tariffs or iPhone tariffs.

What is Orange Care? Why is it automatically added to my plan?

Note that Orange automatically adds Orange Care to your basket. This is a £6/month phone insurance plan and is listed under the “Additional services” section ofnthe order page. We recommend removing this as you may already have mobile phone insurance. If you need mobile phone insurance, it might already be covered under your home insurance. Alternatively, you can probably get a better deal elsewhere.

What phones are available on Orange?

Orange have all of the latest smartphones including Android phones such as the HTC Desire HD and the Samsung Galaxy S and Windows phones such as the HTC 7 Mozart and Samsung Omnia 7.

Orange exclusively range the HTC 7 Mozart which is available free for £28.19/month with the voucher code:

HTC 7 Mozart
Free on £28.19/month* contract – 700 minutes, unlimited texts, 750MB internet

  • Windows Phone 7 Operating System
  • 8-megapixel camera with digital zoom and Xenon flash
  • 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz processor

* Select HTC 7 Mozart “Dolphin 35” package and use PROMO120 voucher code. Offer expires 3rd April 2011.

A full list of available phones can be found on the Orange website. The phones are available on a range of plans starting at £15/month.

How much do the plans cost after the discount?

The Dolphin plans are the most popular. The online price with the voucher code compares to high-street prices as follows:

High Street Price Online Price (with discount) Minutes Texts Internet
£15.32/month £15.32/month 50 Unlimited 750MB
£20.42/month £20.42/month 100 Unlimited 750MB
£25.54/month £17.98/month 300 Unlimited 750MB
£30.64/month £23.08/month 500 Unlimited 750MB
£35.74/month £28.19/month 700 Unlimited 750MB
£40.85/month £30.75/month 1200 Unlimited 750MB

      Thanks for the comments Amy & Matt – I've just checked on the Orange website and I can't get it working either. I'm going to get in touch with the guys at Orange to find out why (they may have finished the promotion early for example, or there could be a technical issue). Keep an close eye here for developments.

      Hi Amy,

      This code is for the general public – it should work on Pay Monthly contracts above £20/month excluding iPhone or Blackberry tariffs. You need to order through and the code must be entered in all caps.

      Hi Cam,

      As far as we're aware, Orange have no plans to bring back this code. However, if you subscribe to our blog via e-mail/Twitter/Facebook/RSS, we'll let you know if any similar offers come up.

    Hiya, any more news if the code works yet or if it will work in the future? Thanks, Amber

      Hi Amber,

      I think it's unlikely this code will be available in time for Christmas as we're so close… however we'll keep a close eye to see whether Orange launch any voucher codes for the New Year Sales.

    Hi Ken,

    Any news yet on this code? It’s a really good deal and I’ve found various websites advertising it, yet it still doesn’t work! I’m wondering whether to wait to see if it does end up working or simply go for a different company.

    Many thanks, Simon

      Hi Simon,

      We've been in touch with Orange and they say that they've been experiencing "technical difficulties" implementing the voucher code on their website. My understanding is the code will still be launched but we'll have to wait and see whether it does happen because Christmas is fast approaching.
