Pay as you go Triple Credit

Our Triple Credit tariff on Pay as you go gives you free credit when you top-up to use on standard UK calls, texts and data.
How it works
When you top-up £10, £15 or £20, we triple that top-up:
You can get free credit once a month and it lasts for one month.
After a month, your free credit expires but credit from top-ups never expires.
How to get triple credit
  • Call 282 from your Tesco Mobile phone to opt in to the Triple Credit tariff on Pay as you go
  • Then just top-up by £10, £15 or £20
How do I triple my credit?
You have to be on the Triple Credit tariff on Pay as you go. To transfer your tariff, call 282 free from your Tesco Mobile phone. 

How long will my free credit last for?
You can get free credit once a month and your free credit lasts for one month, until your next monthly anniversary date. For example: if you get your first free credit on 5 January, you've got until midnight on the 4 February to use it. If you top-up before your anniversary date, you’ll receive free credit the following month.

What's my monthly anniversary date?
It's the day when:
  • you have to use up your free credit by
  • you need to top-up by, in order to get free credit that month 
Every time you use your phone to make a call or send a text, we send you a message saying how much top-up and free credit you have left, as well as your anniversary date. For a reminder of your balance at any time, you can also dial *#10# free.

If I don't top-up before my monthly anniversary date, what happens?
We'll text you five days before your monthly anniversary date to remind you. If you don't top-up, you can still carry on using your phone as normal. You just won’t get any free credit. You’ll get free credit the next time you top up and this date will become your new monthly anniversary date.
