Telstra’s got a Christmas promotion for you that’s worthy of some serious consideration, offering $240 credit on a new tablet or phone when you sign up to 12 months of Go Mobile service. If that’s not sweet enough, you’ll also get $200 credit and 4.5GB of extra data to use each month (if you sign up online).
The deal is for new and returning customers who sign up to a new Go Mobile plan, where you’ll find the bonus credit and data on offer at the $50/month and $70/month price points on 12-month plans. Spread over 12 months, that $200 credit would reduce your monthly spend to around $34/month for 7GB of data. On data alone, that’s one of the best deals around.
To kicker is that once you sign up to the plan Telstra’s Christmas offer gets you an extra $240 credit to spend on a new device. The text on Telstra’s offer page suggests using the credit to purchase a tablet, but we’re told that Telstra reps are allowing it to be used for purchase of a new phone. It’s worth confirming this with a Telstra representative before you go ahead, though — don’t get caught out based on assumption.
If honoured, this deal would bring the price of a 32GB Nexus 5X down to $480 – a very merry Christmas indeed.
Despite the “online only” Go Mobile credit and data offer, OzBargain commenters are also saying that this is available in-store, probably depending on whether your Telstra salesperson is having a good day or not so good… again, it’s worth clarifying before you sign anything or hand over any money.
