Managing your plan or offer
What's the difference between a Plan and Offer?
On Prepay you’ll always have a “plan” which determines the default rates you’re charged for the services you use (such as accessing data, making calls, sending texts, ringing voicemail etc.).
All plans then have “offers” which give you better value rates when you opt-in and top up. If you haven’t opted-in to an offer, or have missed your top-up date you’ll be charged the rates according to your plan.
You can only have one offer on one plan.
Once you opt in to an offer, you don’t have to opt in each month. Just top up by the required amount to reactivate it. If you’re not sure when you last topped up, text “offer” to 50104. This will also tell you the name of your offer.
How do I get an offer?
You can opt-in to an offer in one of two easy ways
- By text –freetext the offer’s opt-in code to 50104
- Online –opt-in through my eir

You only need to opt-in to your chosen offer once, and can only have one offer at any given time.
If you’re not sure of your current offer, text “offer” to 50104. This will also tell you the name of your offer.
How do I change my offer?
You can change to another offer by sending a text message, however before you do, there are some important things you should know:
- If you’re moving to a different plan, your call rates may change
- Your new offer will only activate after topping up
- You’ll lose any remaining days on your current offer
- After changing your offer, wait for a confirmation text before topping up
- Once you top up, you’ll receive two texts – one to confirm top up, and one to confirm your offer is now active. Please wait for the second text as you will be charged standard plan rates until your offer activates.

How do I change my plan?
How can I tell which offer I am on and if it's active?
Text offer to 50104 and we’ll text you back your offer name and the date your offer is due to expire.
After topping up, all parts of your offer will activate in one go.
What happens if I top up while I am in the middle of an offer?
If you're on an offer where you keep your credit and top up by the same amount again mid-month your offer will simply reactivate.
How much will calls, texts or data cost when my offer expires?
