It's important to choose the right top up amount to get your bonus free credit. You won't get any free credit if you just order a free SIM without topping it up.

At our last check, you needed to top up with £20 to get a bonus of £5 credit (an extra 25% for your money).

Or to get the full £10, choose the option to top up with £30 (an extra 33%).

As you can see from above, to get the most free credit, the best option is to top up with £30.
