    Does this stack with the referral bonus?

    If it does, wouldn't the total cost be a profit of $2?

    Got this deal when it was $8, had activation issues, speeds barely get over 20-30 down and 2 up. If the intention was to win customers over it’s not working. My Telstra SIM in the same device gets 320/50. I’m assuming their capping this service? Handy for a spare iPad I have but can be slow, can’t complain at this price.

    •  

      Might you have not been in a 4G area? I suppose you tried it various places that ought to have been though.

        Yeah im 2km from the CBD, def had 4G, tried several locations, even different devices get same results.

      Same coming from Optus - 20/3 on Vodafone from 140/45 on Optus.

      I was impressed by their domestic roaming feature though - it'd roam onto Optus/Telstra 3G free of charge if there was no Vodafone reception. Not good for data sim, but be great for mobile sims..

      the intention was to win customers over it’s not working.

      the intention is to win customers over to Shopback, and or Cashrewards. This is not a vf deal.
      and get your facebook details…

    Great start OP!

    •  

      Thanks strike1

    Received an email from Shopback that my purchase is confirmed. Logging into Shopback my account, the status is "Pending" and expecting confirmation by 19 August?? Will I have to wait for that long for my Cashback?

    Pending: Validating your Cashback
    We've received your order details and it is being validated by Vodafone. You can expect confirmation by 19 Aug 2018 when our partner store ensures that you did not make any cancellation, return or exchange. Otherwise, the cashback will be adjusted or voided.

      If you read the tc you need to activate within 30 days and keep active for 60 which is 90 days.

  • +2 votes

    Oh no! Your installed ad blocker plugin is stopping you from getting cashback!

    Oh no! My installed ad blocker plugin is stopping you from getting into my privacy

    •  

      You install DoNotTrack plugin for Chrome without having to use an adblocker (and other options).
      So was your adblocker worth skipping the 22$ cashback?

  •  

    Thanks OP. $25 reward was quickly tracked.

  •  

    Great 👍
    Atleast there is someone capable to break Cashrewards Monopoly!!
    Hopefully not end up like PricePal .

  •  

    What does it mean to keep the Sim active for 60 days?

    •  

      Keep the service active for 60 days.

      • +2 votes

        Does it mean that it is enough just not to cancel the service with Vodafone or the SIM card must be in a device for 60 days connected with their network? Also why would one want to cancel it if it is one off payment?

      •  

        Obviously I don't need to put the sim on a daily exercise plan, was just wondering, if it sits in a drawer for 30 days after I've depleted the data in say 30 days, will I lose my cashback or does it need to stay connected to their network or something?

  •  

    Got my cashback tracked without an email FYI!

  •  

    how many can I buy? even with $25 it's still cheap !

  •  

    Is this only for new ShopBack or Vodafone customer ? Got this deal previously when it was $8. Wouldn’t mind some extra data for $3 ! But it would be nasty surprise if don’t get the $22 cash back…. Anyone know ?

    •  

      $22 cashback is for everyone afaik. you may want to confirm with shopback tho.

  •  

    site dont allow ad blocker….

    • +1 vote

      Correct. Each store you shop at is signed up with an affiliate network who use cookies to track your purchase. If you have adblock, noscript or other similar software, the affiliate websites and/or cookies will be blocked resulting in the sale not tracking and no cashback in your pocket. This is the case across ALL cashback websites.

  •  

    Just ordered. Thanks OP.

    Question is… when does Shopback send an email confirming that they've received the order and give the cashback?
    I've got nothing saying that they are even processing it :S

    Edit: Nevermind was too eagar. Just got the email confirmation!

  •  

    How long does it take to show? I ordered last night however still haven't got the email.

    • +1 vote

      Around 15 minutes after ordering for me. Shopback click history says it can take 2 days so it should still be fine.

  •  

    Would there be any issue with cashback if you had already purchased through the Cashrewards deal and wanted this as well?

  • +1 vote

    Wow. This one has $5 more cashback compared to cashrewards. Not sure why it has got less +ves though.

  •  

    Got mine today. That came quick

  •  

    Could I insert this in an old unlocked android phone and then create a hot spot for other devices when I'm away from wifi?

  •  

    I only got 10 GB, not 35 GB…

    I got $5 friend bonus by clicking the referral link above and $5 shop perks from shopback. Therefore, I will gain $7 and a free sim card.

    I’m having trouble activate the sim, pic
    Anyone having the same problem?

    • +2 votes

      Same, I simply skipped that section. It's not required.

      • +4 votes

        yes, skip but you must choose the Data Only option otherwise you'll end up a different plan. Vodafone's process is quite broken. Having a hard time setting up myvodafone.

      •  

        I though they need the order number to track for cash back? Can OP confirm this?
        As I need to use the data urgently so I just skipped that step like you said above and selected “tablet data only” but in my account only show 10GB without bonus 25GB.

        •  

          Your Shopback Cashback Activity should have Vodafone's order number on it. Edit: Hopefully Voda would be able to confirm that you've activated that SIM under that order even if you didn't input it during activation. Need confirmation as well.

          I'm not sure why you don't have the bonus 25GB data. You may want to contact them.

        •  

          @DuckKnight: Thanks for your reply. I just had a chat with Vodafone and he said it could be delay to show up in Vodafone acccount. Just check again bonus data show up now.

  •  

    Vodafone online store has been down for an hour, unable to purchase :(

    •  

      Yeah. I tried to buy it in the dying minutes of the offer but Voda's site is under maintenance.

      We’ll be back online soon.
      We’re currently updating our site with scheduled improvements. Please check back soon.

    •  

      Wow, I counted myself lucky then. Bought one at around 10:30pm last night.

    Bought yesterday morning. Delivered this morning. Impressive!

    Anyone get this? I did not do either 1 or 2, I did the same as I have for Cashrewards.

    Your cashback of $0.00 was rejected and removed from your pending earnings for one of these reasons: 1. Your order was cancelled, returned or exchanged, partially or fully 2. Your order was paid for with a gift voucher 3. Payment or stay was not completed. If this was not the case, email us at [email protected] and we will check in with our merchants. Note: The partner store holds sole discretion in determining the cashback validity.

  •  

    When I activate, it says it's only 10GB. Anyone experiencing the same issue?

    •  

      After activating, it will show in your accout as bonus data 25G(not straight awat, maybe in 1 hour).

  •  

    Do I have to activate this for mobile broadband? If I activate this on a 365 prepaid plan will the cashback be rejected?

    •  

      Yes. It will be rejected.

  •  

    My account is still not showing the cashback, might send them an email

  •  

    So today is 30 days since order placed. Activate today!

    I tried. Getting issues.

    •  

      I booked a callback and the automated dialer couldn't recognise my response and defaulted to hangup… fantastic service… Not.

  •  

    Hmm, I didn't realise that this was just a data only sim. No calls included.

  •  

    Did anyone's cashback get pushed back to October? Seems like they don't want to pay out and are delaying as long as possible.

    •  

      Yes, happened to mine as well.

    • +3 votes

      Yep, bait and switch - originally 90 days now changed to 150 days.

      •  

        Yeah it's ridiculous to be honest, doesn't seem like we can do anything about it either, never using Shopback again it seems.

        •  

          Same here. Anyone has a screenshot for the original confirmation date. The customer service just lied and said it was 150 days.

        •  

          Same here. Did anyone get the cashback or is it postponed for everyone?

        •  

          @jakub: same here, pushed to Oct, great way to trash your brand

        •  

          @dtrinh: ok, now authorised for payment. Must have heard us

    •  

      In one of the comments, it says must be activated 90 days from the end of the calendar month the sim card is bought. So if bought in early May, it should be 90 days from 31st May, i.e last day of activation is 29 August, is this correct?

  •  

    Surprise, surprise. Though the date was pushed back to October but got it confirmed today, i.e. I can withdraw now!
