Airtime 101: How to save money on your mobile bill 

Smartphones. We all have one. In fact, you’re probably using yours right now. 

Mobile phones are essential to our daily lives and most of us would feel lost without one. But the cost of mobile bills is increasing, leaving us with less money to spend on the things we love. 

Airtime Rewards is putting an end to this. 

We are redefining rewards for a mobile world and reducing the cost of smartphone ownership by rewarding you for shopping at over 80 of your favourite retailers. On average our 750,000 members reduce their bill by £10 a month with some eliminating it entirely. Saving money on your mobile bill has never been easier!

We’ve put together a simple step-by-step guide on how to start earning rewards and get money off your mobile bill.

9 simple steps to get cashback on your mobile bill

Step 1: Download App

Download the free Airtime Rewards app from the App Store or Google Play

Step 2: Verify number

When you open the app you will be asked to enter your mobile number. You will then receive an SMS pin. Enter this pin to verify your number. 

Step 3: Select network

Select your mobile network provider and account type so we can apply rewards to your mobile bill. We’re compatible with all major networks including O2, EE and Vodafone.

Step 4: Link cards

Link one or more of your cards so we can track your spending with our retailers and reward you. Adding a card ensures that you can earn rewards on every single purchase. Cards become active 24 hours after you’ve linked them and you will be notified via push message when it becomes active.

Your security is our top priority. We are PCI compliant and work in partnership with VISA and Mastercard. Your card details are kept secure and encrypted. Best of all, there are no hidden charges or fees. It’s completely free!

Step 6: Enable notifications

Be the first to know about our exclusive offers, new retailers or the latest competitions by signing up to our marketing emails and enabling push notifications. We will also notify you when your purchases have been tracked and completed so you can keep track of your rewards.

Step 7: Start shopping

Start shopping! Every time you shop at one of our retailers with a linked card, you can earn up to 10% rewards.

It can take up to 14 days for transactions to reach our system, so keep an eye on the transaction status in the app. We have varying pending periods across our retailers, but typically a transaction will be complete after 35 days. You can track your purchases within the ‘History’ section of the app for an accurate countdown. Once the transaction is complete, the rewards will appear in your balance. 

Step 8: Redeem rewards

Redeem your rewards! Simply select the amount you’d like and apply it to your mobile bill directly from the app. Your rewards will appear directly on your mobile phone bill after 24 hours.

Missing a transaction?

It can take up to 14 days for the transaction to appear in your account. If it has not appeared after 14 days, you can fill in a claim form under ‘Missing a transaction?’ in the app. We will then escalate the transaction with the retailer and card schemes. You should hear back from us within 10 days.
