Free Optus $2 SIM @ 7-Eleven [App Required]

840

It's back on for another month.

There's also free regular coffee (targeted) and cheap snacks.

While you can't do much with a $2 SIM, maybe port in and out between another provider's starter packs, it will give you access to Optus Perks for cheap Hoyts tickets and Cricket Live access.

    No free coffee showing up for me. But always good to claim another spare sim. Thanks OP

  • If you activate the sim just for the perks do you have to top it up at any point to keep it active?

    • No I believe you can just forget it, as long as the number is still with Optus, I don't think they do anything to check whether it's alive or not.

      • Thanks! I'll get one and put it in an old phone then. :)

      • +4

        Optus will deactivate your number if you don't top it up and keep it in credit within a certain time.
        The length of time varies depending on which plan you get.

    • Once you get an account for Optus Perks I don't think it matters if you have an active service or not.

        Nah, my Perks account was inactivated after 3 months or so of doin' nothin'. Though I never topped up.

        • Ahh okay.

    It's probably not free, 7-Eleven make the staff pay for it.

  • Is it limited to one per customer?

    • Yes. Well once per app installation.

      Note: you can redownload the app, make a new account, and redeem the offers again.

      via previous deal

      • That's interesting. I'll try that next time.

        Simply clearing the app data on Android didn't bring back the SIM card promotion last month. But that was without ever creating an account. I was under the impression they recognised the android device id, Google advertising ID or installed extraneous data.

        On Android I just cleared the Cache & activated new account. Got fresh offers. That also works with other apps with freebies­čś»

      • Tried the bar code straight from downloading the app - it didn't work.

        Do I have to have created an account (and signed in) in order for the offer to work?

    Get one for Optus Perks if you want, but keep in mind it will deactivate 6 months after the last recharge.
    :(

    • Yeah and the SIM says you must activate within 30 days of purchase.

      • +1

        But I don't think that caveat is implemented.

        • OK, thanks. I might keep one for 6 months to test :)

    No free coffee for me either. Plus I saw an offer for a free donut (on condition i registered the app) which has now disappeared after registering.

    • It says the free donut will arrive within 24 hours. I'll wait 23 more hours and then send off a hangry complaint.

    • Mine is a registered account, it has free Optus sim, coffee and donut.

      I regularly use the "fuel price lock" but when ever I have tried to redeem the sim it fails. Not sure why…

    Free coffee appears once a month in my experience (post registration)

    it doesn't work says redeemed previously, I think the app keeps record of last time redemption of the same $2 sim, this time it said that it has been redeemed the 7/11 woman tried a lot didn't work so had to leave.

    • Note: you can redownload the app, make a new account, and redeem the offers again.

      via previous deal

    • When does it say redeemed previously? After pressing the new promotion?

      My barcode appears but I haven't tried redeeming again. I cleared the app's data though and registered an account.

        on 7/11 system it says redeemed the lady said, and I told her this valid from today, so she checked again and the system was not allowing to let it go thru the free voucher in the app, I didn't stress much as the store owners would later on force her to pay from her account which is normal practice so I just said thanks and left the sim to her.

      Same issue here

  • I thought you needed an active balance for Cricket Live access, along with Optus Sport if it was this years deal.

  • I looked at Optus Perks at Eastgardens which only has recliner seats and there was an option for a $15 ticket + no booking fee or a $13 ticket but with a $1.20 booking fee ($14.20)???

    • Lol, looking at that cinema too!

  • something wrong with app - cannot even login. No error received but it just loops and comes back on same login screen.

  • OMG! Cannot run on the rooted device?!

      • Many Thanks!

  • These have always been free around hotels, Telstra and Vodafone $2 sims also.

  • RACV members (in VIC) can get discounted movie tickets at any time online or at RACV Shops, no need to go into the trouble of Telstra Thanks/Optus Perks etc.

    • What price and for which cinemas?

  • First time registered but when they scanned they said it didn't work

  • How long does the Optus Perks valid for, do you have to continually top up in order to continue getting the perks?

      • Thanks, activated and created Optus account online and says have to top up by 8 Jan otherwise will expire…will I still have access to Perks?

        • Yes
