Vodafone relaunches £10 jobseeker tariff

The SIM-only deal with unlimited data, calls and texts for £10 a month is available again on Vodafone’s Voxi brand.

Voxi initially offered the cheap 5G SIM-only ‘For Now’ deal to people who’d lost their job due to the pandemic in November last year, but the tariff has not been available since the end of January.

But the For Now tariff is back for new customers, and available until 30 September 2021. Those who signed up last time can get their plans extended until 31 October 2021.

The deal will run for six months on a rolling monthly subscription which means you can cancel at any time. After six months you’ll be switched to a £10 a month tariff offering 6GB data and ‘endless social media’.

The unlimited deal doesn’t have any tethering restrictions so you could potentially ditch your home broadband and use 5G at home instead.

To get the For Now tariff you need to be receiving jobseeker’s allowance, employment and support allowance, or employment-based universal credit.

To apply, customers need to upload an image of their Universal Credit statement or a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions via the Voxi website that confirms they are in receipt of job-seeking benefits.

Similar deals with no contract and unlimited data, calls and texts normally cost at least £36 a month from Vodafone – so For Now is a bargain if you’re eligible.

Vodafone has reopened its doors across the UK. Some 363 stores opened yesterday in England and Wales, as well as 15 ‘Click and Collect’ stores in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

More stores are scheduled to open in due course. Store opening hours have been extended to meet customer demand, with stores now open until 10pm in some locations.
