Thumbs up Turkcell Offer

Just got an offer on my Turkcell pre-paid mobile, a friend told me about it & I have just signed up.....For those that are interested if you send a text message to 2222, saying 'aylik 100' They take 20tl lira off your phone, and you get 100tl...Bargain! The money can be used for turkcell to turkcell calls & texts you have 30 days to use it, then just top up another 20 lira.

Re: Turkcell Offer

Might be wrong but it sounds a bit iffy to me.

Why take away 20tl just to give you back 100tl ?
Why not simply give you 80tl to start with?

Hopefully someone will prove me wrong, but my old sceptic brain tells me you do not usually get something for nothing, and lets face it, as a existing customer they already have your business, so it's not to try and entice you to use turkcell

Just be careful you are not spending 20tl on some donation to a charity or something similar.

Re: Turkcell Offer

Oldfogy my friend has been using it for a few months now, I have since yesterday ...totally legit' if you type in *123*84# it informs you of your remaining credit for the offer mine is currently 98.25. I think the catch is to get you to commit to 20tl a month...I usually use more than double that so I am chuffed with this offer.

If I thought for one second it was a con....I wouldn't share it on an open forum

Re: Turkcell Offer

Yali is right. There is also a 30 TL package ( aylik150) in which you pay 30TL and get 150 TL of phone credit. I also only just found out there was also the 100 package Yali mentions as was a bit miffed that I always had half my credit left before the month ran out...so will be swopping mine to the 20TL package next time.

Re: Turkcell Offer

oldfogy, i think the catch is you can only call people on Turkcell so you still need to have normal credit.

Yes you are probably right - most of our friends are on Turkcell so a great offer for us and worth the 20tl

Re: Turkcell Offer

Ok, thanks very much for the confirmation and no, I don't mind being wrong.

I know they work in turkey and it's very cheap to phone turkey from the UK, but I do not know the cost of calls when being used in turkey, but calls to or from either of the following "Lebara to/from Lebara" or "Lycamobile to/from Lycamobile" are totally free anyway, although in the UK there are quite a few mobiles that also work that way.

Or is it only Turkcell in turkey that operate a free call system which makes it such a good deal?

No its not a con...especially if you use more than 20 to 30 lira a month which was the point of the thread and we spend 50 + pm. If you use less than that a month don't take the offer up..simple. It was supposed to be an informative thread not a debate over cons & costs. I did state it only lasted for 30 days.
