We’ve teamed up with Deezer to give away two sets of tickets to an evening of brand new music in London’s The Hospital Club where you’ll be able to experience Brighton duo MIAMIGO and their shimmering, irresistibly ‘80s pop, along with Sweden’s Elias, whose cinematic tunes and goosebump-inducing vocals are causing a bit of a stir in Scandinavia and beyond.
In our bid to celebrate the poor souls who’s birthdays fall in December, we’ve enrolled the help of Great British Bake Off winner Edd Kimber and a specially designed “Merry Birthday Pudding” – a one-off cake creation to celebrate everyone with a December birthday.
On first appearances the cake looks like a traditional Christmas pud, but break the surface and you soon realise that what looks like dark fruit cake is actually a chocolate ganache and white chocolate cream façade that covers a colourful, sparkly sponge more like a tradtional birthday cake. That’s not all – the centre is bursting with colourful sweets that scream Happy Birthday and not Merry Christmas.
Watch Edd’s step-by-step guide to making the pudding above and if you want to download and keep the recipe, you can find that here.
Edd’s cake is just one of our festive Merry Birthday films. Our other film follows the story of Noel whose birthday, like many others across the UK, falls on Christmas Day – and boy does it suck! Watch Noel’s film here.
If you know someone like Noel who has a Christmas time birthday then the Merry Birthday Pudding is the perfect gift to get their birthday off with a swing this December.
Christmas birthdays can suck.
There are no two ways about it, if you’re born within 2 weeks of Christmas your birthday is usually going to come second to a fat guy in red and the office Christmas party.
Not only does no-one ever have the time or the money to celebrate your birthday with you, but to make matters worse you’re always fobbed off with just one ‘joint’ present. You’re lucky if you even see any birthday wapping paper.
Yep, Christmas birthdays can be the pits. Even with the best of intentions parents of children born on or around Christmas can make matters worse.
We’ve decided that this December we’re going to celebrate the unfortunate souls with Christmas birthdays. They need love too. Someone needs to show them they matter, that their birthdays are just as important as everybody else’s. We need to wish them a Merry Birthday.
Were you unfortunate enough to have been born in December, do you know someone born in December? If so, you might want to take a peek at our film on Facebook. It tells the story of Noel, the boy born on Christmas day. Christmas pudding birthday cakes, joint Christmas and birthday presents, not having your girlfriend around on your birthday because it’s Christmas day. It’s all there.
Tag your friends and share Noel’s story with them, show them you care and wish them a merry birthday.

Black Friday is rolling around again, striking fear into wallets everywhere. And to help you get into the mood for shopping, we’ve teamed up with Sony PlayStation and Uncharted to bring you the ultimate treasure hunt.
We’ve hidden 3 PlayStation 4’s in 8 Three Stores around the country. Your job is to find them!
Some of history’s most notorious buccaneers set sail from our shores to seek their fortune in strange foreign lands. Thankfully you won’t have to go quite as far as they did to find your own treasure, and what’s more you should be able to pop in to your local grocer at the first signs of scurvy. We’d advise against cutlasses, muskets, pillaging or other piratey acts, but be sure to have your wits about you – you may need to do a bit of research to find out where each console is hidden.
The old saying goes; ‘if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is’. Well, not always.
Sometimes you really can get amazing things for free. Like 6 months listening to all the music you want with Deezer Premium+ if you’re a Three customer. New or old. Whether you’re a SIM customer, a phone customer or a tablet customer, you can still get 6 months free access to the 35 MILLION songs held in Deezer’s catalogue. From Status Quo to Sam Smith, it’s safe to say Deezer have it covered. And we’re not going to judge, we like Rockin all over the World as much as the next person 😉
Last year we introduced trade-in, which allowed customers to trade-in their old phones for cash when they sent them in to us. But we’d always planned to get to a stage where customers would be able to use that money instantly in store towards their heart’s desire; that shiny new phone.
Today we’re pleased to be able to announce that you’ll now be able to do just that and get the value of your old phone there and then in the form of a giftcard that you can spend instantly in store. Just bring your old phone in and we’ll value it on the spot. If you’re happy with the price offered and you’re upgrading to a minimum 12 month contract or taking out a new minimum 12 month contact, you’re good to go. The gift card can be used for upfront fees, tablets, Pay As You Go phones, top-up credit and accessories.
To find out more about our fab new trade-in service, take a peek here.
