In the lead up to the busy retail Christmas season, Optus have dropped the price on three of their prepaid mobiles which all include the bonus $20 Google Play gift card.

The three mobiles included in the price drop are the HTC Desire 520, Samsung Galaxy J1 and the LG Leon, all of which have seen a reduction from their original prices to new lower prices in an attempt to win your Christmas gift-giving dollar during the holiday period.
