- 1.0 Prepay products
Please note that as of 28th of August 2013 Double credit will no longer be offered with any new Tesco mobile top up or Prepay plan. All Tesco mobile customers that join Tesco mobile before the 28th of August 2013 will continue to enjoy the benefits of Double Credit until such time as they choose to switch to one of our new plans. Once they have switched from the Double credit plan they will not be in a position to return to this plan. The following terms and conditions will still apply to customers who choose to stay on the Double Credit plans.
