This crazy SIM-only Black Friday deal is BACK

The January sales are in full swing and's Black Friday deal of 200GB of data for £8/mth has returned

iD Mobile has built a reputation for its delightfully cheap data plans but this new year deal is something to behold. Today, you can pocket yourself 200GB of 5G data for an astounding £8/mth on a one-year contract via

That’s the best price on the market right now for such vast amounts of data and given that iD Mobile piggybacks on Three’s network coverage, you’ll be receiving the fastest download speeds and widest reach of any network in the UK, according to OpenSignal.

To put this price in perspective, usually, £8/mth would only get you only 24GB of data. And considering this is a deal we previously saw during Black Friday, you know these are some serious savings. The only catch is that you’ll need to claim the savings via cashback but the process is simple – read on for more details on how the claim process works, plus extra information on this stunning deal.

Let’s ram home the point further: you will not get a better sim-only deal than this elsewhere at present. Directly at EE, for instance, a 125GB plan will cost you £25/mth and highlights how extraordinary the savings are offering on this iD Mobile plan.

If you haven’t heard of the virtual network before, our latest iD Mobile review praised its free EU roaming, 5G speeds and, most crucially, its dirt cheap prices. And while we heartily recommend this 200GB deal, there are a couple of other discounted 12-month plans by iD Mobile should you usually use up fewer gigabytes every month. You can find 140GB of data for £7.50/mth (£14 before) and 100GB for £7/mth after cashback (£12 before) plans, which is still plenty of data to play with – especially since any unused data gets rolled over to the next month.

To get your cashback on whatever sim-only plan you prefer, you need to make a claim on your account and upload your mobile bill every couple of months from four months into your contract (there’s even a short video of the process to make things even easier).

We’d still pick the 200GB plan out of the three because it offers the most bang for your buck. Don’t wait around on any of them though – it might be until Black Friday 2023 to see a deal this good.
