General FAQs

  1. What are Plusnet Rewards?
    • Sometimes we will have offers that include an extra element such as cashback, a Gift Card, a Plusnet Reward Card or something similar (what we call a Plusnet Reward).
    • From time to time we might make Plusnet Rewards available via third party channels (for example cashback might be offered if you sign-up via a comparison or specific cashback site as opposed to via our website or call centre). If you signed up via a third party then the rules and processes to claim your Plusnet Reward may depend on that third party's own terms and conditions as well as, or instead of, these FAQs.
    • Sometimes we offer Plusnet Rewards automatically and you won't have to claim your reward as set out in these FAQs. However, this is normally only the case when you signup via a comparison site and we'll make it clear in the "legal bit" when you sign-up.
  2. Who is eligible for Plusnet Rewards?
    • Only customers who've signed up to a Plusnet Reward offer will receive the relevant reward. We may impose additional eligibility criteria, such as a requirement to sign-up online, but we'll tell you about these when we offer each Plusnet Reward.
    • Sometimes we might make different Plusnet Rewards available via different channels (for example a different Plusnet Reward might be offered if you sign-up via one of our partners to if you sign up with us directly). If you attempt to sign-up for multiple Plusnet Rewards you'll only be entitled to one reward (normally the last one that's selected) and we reserve the right to refuse to provide any Plusnet Rewards if we think you're deliberately trying to obtain multiple rewards.
  3. How long is the link to claim my Plusnet Reward valid for?
    • You'll have up to two months from the date we send you your email to claim your Plusnet Reward. So we can track if you've started the process to claim your Plusnet Reward, we may check to see if you open your email within this two month period.

    • No, they can only be sent to the address listed on your account.
