Thinking Big - great news for Young Scots

Young Scot NECIf you’re one of the 109,000 18-26-year olds who holds a Young Scot NEC card, today’s a good day – we’ve just announced a partnership with Young Scot that’ll get you some great mobile deals.

The Young Scot NEC – or national Entitlement Card – is a free electronic smartcard. It gives young Scots aged 11-26 access to over 1,500 discounts and special offers on products and services right across Scotland. From today, we’re adding these deals to the ever-growing list of Young Scot NEC benefits:

  • £50 bill credit with all Pay Monthly handset tariffs
  • £25 bill credit with 12-month Simplicity tariffs of £15.50 and over
  • £10 bill credit with a 30-day Simplicity tariff.

Today’s announcement enhances the partnership we already enjoy with Young Scot, who are partners with our Think Big initiative.

Think Big helps young people harness their ideas, energy and passion to run projects and campaigner local communities. It’s open to 13-25-year olds – if you’ve got an idea for a project, head over to to see if O2 could help fund it.
