Vodafone X - €20 Prepay Offers

FURTHER EDIT 19 Aug 18: Now available to everyone, not just students
EDITED AT REQUEST OF OP
A new prepay deal aimed at students has been launched called Vodafone X. This offer is officially open to anyone 16 to 25 or anyone with a valid student card.

To sign up simply click the image below and follow the sign up with Facebook link. If you are outside the age bracket please read below.




Vodafone X Weekend Deal
€20 top up every 4 weeks
20GB of 4G data
100 minutes and
unlimited texts to any network
+
UNLIMITED WEEKENDS
Unlimited data, minutes and texts from 3pm on Fridays until 11.59pm on Sundays


Vodafone X Music Deal
€20 top up every 4 weeks
20GB of 4G data
100 minutes and
unlimited texts to any network
+
Free Spotify Premium


Vodafone X Sport Deal
€20 top up every 4 weeks
20GB of 4G data
100 minutes and
unlimited texts to any network
+
Free Sky Sports Mobile


If you are outside that age bracket and are not a student you can still sign up but you need to follow the instructions below.

Firstly set up a facebook with your age being between 16-25 or alter the age on your current profile if you have one.
Then go to the signup link and select your plan you want. Sign in to facebook and let it verify your age. If it cannot verify your age then you cannot sign up as the only other verification method is going in store with valid ID.

If it can verify your age and you get asked for your phone number so they can send you a pin then you are in luck. Proceed to the next step.

If you are not with vodafone then order a free sim here and port your number into vodafone pay as you go.

Once you have your vodafone sim enter in your mobile number and wait for the verification code. Once this is received and entered you will be signed up to vodafone X.

Then you need to go and top up by €20.

If you are signing up for X Music or X Sports then upon topping up you will be sent a link by sms to click on and finish your registration for these services.

Lastly after you are all signed up go My Vodafone and correct your date of birth so if you ever want to lift the web content filter on your account you can by visiting a store with valid ID.

I'm with them from the start, get constant phonecalls, but never an offer as good as those.
And they throw my loyalty in my face by offering good deals to the group most likely to chuck them aside, the first chance they get.
One of these days.....I probably still won't leave.

Well I was in their store on Henry St, Dublin. The girl behind the counter tried to invoke the age clause but failed to notice that someone over 25 could avail of the offer.

She took photocopy of my student ID & processed application. Next time I top up by €20 the plan will be active.

Just set up a Facebook page with your date of birth within the qualifying years. Only takes a couple of minutes.

I presume it "uses" the €20 top up every month and you don't get to keep it?

Ya it says it in the "how does it work" section

When you top up by €20 or more in one transaction, €20 will be debited from your credit and the Offer will activate. This €20 charge will apply each time you top up by €20 or more in one transaction.
If you need to top up again during your 4 weeks Offer period, it is recommended that you top up by less than the minimum amount so that you do not activate a new offer period of 4 weeks.


On another note, can anyone comment on what Vodafone's coverage / 4g speed is like? With 3 for the unlimited data but the coverage is pretty woeful, definitely considering switching

Don't mean to be turning the thread a different direction, but just noticed the following:

The 20GB data allowance can be used to access the internet via the below Access Point Networks only: wap.vodafone.ie & live.vodafone.com. Tethering over the HS APN or any other use of the HS APN will incur OOB charges.

I know every network technically has something against tethering, but does this clause actually hold any weight? Tethering is essential for me

It all depends on where you are but in general Vodafone is definitely the best. I travel for work quite a bit and have tried a few networks. Wouldn't change from Vodafone now.
