JB HiFi and Telstra are promoting their $49 mobile plan with 20GB data, again

We’ve covered this deal before, because it’s one that Telstra and JB HiFi run fairly frequently these days … but ultimately, we’re covering it again because it’s actually a really good deal.

For customers of any other network, you can port across to Telstra in a JB HiFi store and get a $49/mo plan which includes 20GB of data each month, unlimited calls and SMS within Australia, and a bonus $200 JB Gift Card.

The plan is actually $59 a month, but with a $10 port in credit, that cost is effectively $49 each month over the 12 month minimum contract term, making a total minimum commitment of $588 over twelve months.

This represents pretty great value for money, as Telstra ordinarily offers just 10GB with their $49 plan, and to get 20GB a month, the plans start at $79 a month. So, if you’re looking to consider a new deal, this might be a good one for you. If not, check out some of our other plan coverage to find the right service offering for you:

Or… if you are happy with 24 months contract and only 15gb data…

Port your no. in on the $59 plan.. get 15gb data and get a free Pixel 2 XL…. then sell the Pixel 2 XL for say $1100… then the plan only costs you about $300 over 24 months!

How exactly does that $10 port in credit work anyway??

$49/mnth effectively as $10 credit off your bill ongoing, even past the 12 months

You can port from almost any 3rd party Telstra MVNO eg woolies, ALDI. Just not BOOST
