    Wondering if i should jump across from vaya ($26/month for 3gb)

    If anyone knows the answers to these questions that'd be super helpful

    This is telstra's wholesale network, how does that compare to optus?

    Can you port a number to this instore $5 sim?

    Cheers.

    How about Kogan? $209 for 3GB/month, and $279 for 8GB/month

    • +5 votes

      Aldi is Telstra wholesale, Kogan is Vodafone.

      If Vodafone cover all the areas you'll be using it then by all means go for Kogan but if you have poor Vodafone reception I'd say go for Aldi

        Also for Vodafone they don't use Band 28, if your phone has band 28 it's probably better for you to go with Aldi mobile

        Vodafone OTOH uses Band 5 which is unique in that no other provider uses it in Australia.

    •  

      $209 for Kogan? I'm seeing $299.90 for their 12 month plan. Would be keen to switch for that price as with Vodafone already. Please send through link if you have one! Cheers.

  •  

    What happens if I already have it charged until say mid march? Anyone know if it will kick in after that?

  •  

    works out well, am with aldi, was due to renew tomorrow automatically , so didn't lose any value !

    Why would they not make it a permanent Offer? What's with the time limit to buy it?

  •  

    Well my credit doesn't expire until afterthe 3rd it's a load of bullshit it overrides existing credit and data…

    Just went to ALDI (Brunswick) and they don't have any sims left. They have spots by the register where they should be but no stock. I can't recall if they were there previously but would be interesting to know if corporate have advised them to put them in the back for the duration of the promotion.

    •  

      Plenty at my local an hour ago.

      For what possible reason would they do that?

      •  

        To keep the offer for existing customers? Don't know. After the limited stock from the last offer, just a bit paranoid. In any case, just went to Aldi Templestowe and plenty of stock. Thanks OP.

          In that case it would be easy to say that X offer is only available to services activated prior to XYZ date. Why would they alienate weeks worth of customers by removing stock when there are easier solutions? And there are plenty of people with cards like myself that have not yet been activated so removing them from the shelves would be pointless.

          @Maverick-au:

          So to be clear I don't think they are doing this at Aldi as there seems to be stock elsewhere.

          What you describe reminds me of what some stores on eBay do right before an eBay promotion.

        •  

          @neil: The problem just seems to be an Aldi supply issue. I went to two stores in December looking for a SIM and they were out of stock, with one store's staff (2 people) saying that the SIM pack had been discontinued and could only be ordered online. This was, of course, rubbish but nonetheless the supply issue meant I only found a SIM at a third, amply stocked store.

        •  

          Careful - getting awful close to JV territory.

  •  

    You can order a SIM online here: https://www.aldimobile.com.au/starterpack/

    Been a while since i bought one but I remember it being relatively quick.

    Edit: It does say please allow up to 10 working days for it to be delivered so I suppose it could be later than this deal

  •  

    Thought those were monthly inclusions. 42gb….! The disappointment when the realisation sunk in….

    •  

      42gb a month would see congestion like the old days with Vodafone.

      An unlimited plan with 3.5 Gb of data per month for $20.75 per month is pretty good though. It'd be overkill for my needs but planning to go with it.

    Considering the jump from TPG(Voda) to Aldi(Telstra). Have the $5 Aldi SIM Pack. Can anyone confirm if I port across to this pack whether this 42GB will be available. Also wondering about 4G Voda Vs Telstra coverage in Adelaide - thoughts appreciated.

    • +1 vote

      Yes it will appear in your recharge offers.

    •  

      I'm not confident enough to say the Superpack recharge option would definitely be there for anyone that wasn't an existing customer before the announcement.
      We'll probably hear about it fairly soon if anyone activates a sim and finds the Superpack is not available for new customers though.

      • +1 vote

        People are starting to report they have the Superpack after porting to AldiMobile to get it.
        No one saying they can't yet.

  • +3 votes

    "You currently have an active Pack on your service which has 12 days remaining. Adding this new Pack will override your existing Pack and any remaining credits will be forfeited." It's only $6 I'd be losing but I think I'll risk waiting a little longer, hopefully the deal won't end earlier than stated.

    Smartest mobile deal in my opinion. Customers don't lose any data at the end of the month, so it's most fair. Also having a lot of data left, customers will use more data than usual, many ending up using up all their data before 1 year is up. And they pay 1 year upfront.

  •  

    Just went to Aldi they had no sims. Spoke to manager and she said all stores and have no sims available. WTF

    •  

      Forest Hill in VIC had 10+ this morning when the store opened.

      •  

        Yep thought it was odd - this was at Winston Hills NSW. Went over to Baulkham Hills and they had 20

    •  

      Went to the Local Aldi on the Gold Coast this morning to check and they had at least one box of the $5 starter sims at each checkout.

  •  

    Just renewed a byo 12 month contract with optus a few days ago :(
    $29 (after $10 bundle discount) for 12gb pm, unltd local calls and 300 international minutes. So, I guess not that bad

  •  

    perfect timing my sim just came in the mail was looking at the large value pack but this is much better

  •  

    Just curious, if you buy an Aldi normal sim, can you use the super pack voucher to activate it. A better question: Does someone have the super pack voucher that I can use to see if it'll activate the normal ALDI sim?

    • +1 vote

      You have to activate the starter pack SIM first, getting $5 AYG credit, then add this super pack, which costs $249 to buy online. So I don't think somebody will just give you a voucher.

      •  

        Hmmm are you sure? I have taken a screenshot of the last activation screen which needs a super pack voucher code.

        •  

          Oh whoops I get it !! Voucher code would cost $250 lol! Well my only predicament is that I am porting over my existing number, I just hope I can pay for the Super Pack.

        • +2 votes

          You should choose not to recharge at activation and just activate the included $5 credit on AYG, then come back and add the super pack for $249 after your SIM is active, before 3/3.

          Edit: it will cost you $254 in total then.

    I got a 12month VAYA UNL/8gb for $20x12=$250 (optus 4G), I see KOGAN offer something similar (discounts for 12 month advance recharge) on Vodafone 3G/4G and now this from ALDI using part of the Telstra 4G/3G network. Great deals, all of them! Nice to get back to around the $20 a month level for SIM ONLY offers.

  •  

    so i just signed up to aldi mobile… how long is it going to take to port over as i am aware it should be pretty quick but i had issues previously when i tried to port over when kogan closed down many years ago

  •  

    I did too, it was almost instant! Lost service on my Amaysim and it was just about 10 mins before I could call the ported number.

  •  

    just ported but for some reason my moto g did not like the sim until i put the sim in another phone then back in and it worked

    It all worked but had to call them to activate it - Thanks greenpossum

    Just bought kogan… would have stayed with adi if their original super pack wasn't a fiasco

  •  

    Has anyone with new sim managed to activate the super pack?

  • +2 votes

    Thanks OP, was with Vaya on $18 plan until this morning. Saw this deal, picked a $5 sim from Ringwood. In no time all ported nicely within 1/2 hour. $5 credit can be used to offset $249. Sweet!!!
    For those that had the same issue as me (Galaxy S6), you cannot change the speed dial 1 for voicemail from 101. So I set a speedial for voicemail to the 2 button to dial 141.

  •  

    This seems like a really great deal. With Vaya right now, but if you travel a lot and need data this is perfect and very good value.

    Thanks GCSteve, I had a $5 Aldi sim sitting in my desk and have been wanting to hook up to the Superpack. As you said, I ported my number across and now as an "existing customer" I am being offered the Superpack as a recharge:)

    EDIT.. I just "recharged" and it let me use my PAYG credit of $4.96 against the total cost of the Superpack - just thought I'd mention this for others who have just done a fresh recharge.

    •  

      Strange, it didn't let me to use my PAYG credit against the cost of the super-pack. It simply failed when I tried to do that.

  •  

    If I'm not with aldi but want to get this plan, do I have to buy a sim for $5 and recharge from within to get this?

    Also, how does this differ from the previous deal? On the Aldi website it says "The 1 Year Super Pack was sold in ALDI stores from 4th February and is now sold out" - was this referring to like a sim card preloaded with the super pack that ran out of stock?

  •  

    I purchased the SIM, ported over and now Aldi will not accept payment (tried on Visa & Mastercard) for Superpack. Anyone else having trouble?

  •  

    Seeing the great mobile deals lately I wish I needed it. Still have at least one years worth of data on my Telstra prepaid SIM

  • +1 vote

    Loved this deal, ported two family mobiles over to this deal today. avg $20.40/month for unlimited calls with 3.5GB data, on Telstra (wholesale) network… should do us for the next 12 months.

  • +9 votes

    Just confirming this works - I was a non existing customer, purchased the sim yesterday and ported today. Step by step below for clueless people (like me).

    Step 1 - go to aldi mobile.com.au click on activate and enter the activation code in the pack.

    Step 2 - enter all your personal details and choose to recharge later.

    Step 3 - once your current phone goes to sos only turn it off and change sims to the Aldi one (it took about 3 minutes for my number to port)

    Step 4 - Install the Aldi mobile app with your new account number and password

    Step 5 - open the app on your phone and you should have $5 balance. Go to account details and enter your credit card info.

    Step 6 - go to recharge in the app and choose the 1 year super pack. Done.

    Seems to actually be 43,008MB which is nice. That means they are giving you 42GB in real terms. (42 * 1024 MB)

    Just did this today. Got a $5 Starter kit in store, ported my existing number from Telstra Prepaid to Aldi. Took about 15-20 minutes for everything to get activated. Then got the Super Pack option under recharge. Saves me about $9 a month. Thanks O.P :D

  •  

    This was so much easier to get than that previous deal! Got the sim and number ported after a few minutes. Too easy! Thanks OP!

  •  

    Well what a useless mob to deal with if it goes belly up. 9am Sunday morning transferred two mobiles across to them. Half hour later went to call someone and phone dead and I thought wow that was nice and quick. Swapped over the sims in both phones. First one worked a treat no problems at all and added the year plan to both phones. After adding plan found the second phone wasn't working Only had message on screen "Emergency calls only" Contacted ALDI Sunday night and had to do the usual things like remove the sim power down the phone try selecting the provider manually.

    Didn't get anywhere so they tell me they are logging a job with next level support. 2 days later got an email for 2nd level support asking me to restart phone try sim in different phone and try selecting provider manually. (Strangely enough seemed to be same spiel as 1st level support)

    Called them last night saying that didn't work so they have logged another job with 2nd level support and I have to wait another 24-48 hours.

    Even though I have logged a previous job they ask me all the details all over again including who I was with before, what model the phone is, have I restarted it tried the sim in a different phone, tried another working sim in this phone.

    I really really hope I don't have to deal with support again once they get this up an running.

    •  

      Doubt they'd go belly up. Although Medion Mobile is a separate entity to Aldi, Aldi would cop a lot of flack if they let that happen. Also Aldi now has over 100,000 app users which it could theoretically use push notifications to promote a special deal in Aldi. The value for Aldi is astonishing and not many MVNOs have truly tapped into it. (Kogan Mobile has done to some extent)

      •  

        Sorry by belly up on this occasion I meant if the transfer all goes wrong like one of mine did.
