      How is that the killer?

      Almost all other postpaid services not offering Endless Data or a similar feature have a $10/1GB option automatically enabled. Not a new concept here.

        As a better example Kogan does recharge data packs instead of allowing you to keep incurring debt by continually downloading extra data.

        So they stop you from incurring bill shock but this provider / plan seems to let you keep using data and does not stop you which is deadly to your wallet say if this is for a kid or somebody unaware of data caps (you would be surprised not everybody is as ozbargain as us here).

        Could mean the difference between a $10 bill and $100 bill sometimes if left unaware especially with kids or the elderly I have seen it before.

    I remember when 1GB use to be enough for the kids… Now it's for your parents/grandparents.

    I doubt 1GB will be enough for them to play Fortnite…

      Mobile data is just for when you’re out of the house.

      For my (gaming) parents, that’s just about never. A few megabytes would do.

    Will I have to sign up for a new number? Can I use an existing Amaysim number that I got during the $40/$35 cashback deal?

  •  

    New customer only?

    Can i use the existing email account/or email address to purchase to receive $3 cash back?

    • +1 vote

      Same rules as always for amaysim cashback. But the offer itself (1FOR1) requires you to be a new customer:

      Not to be used in conjunction with an existing amaysim service.

        Amaysim share prices recently dropped from 90cents to 65cents - after having to raise fresh new capital. Must be painful being Amaysim shareholders. Constantly paying for these marketing cost and probably getting very little margin after all the other operating costs. Hope OzBargain doesn't kill this business - the retail industry is already pretty dead. Manufacturing is halfway there. Not sure what's left? Investment advisory just got wiped out by Banking royal commission. Aged care royal commission might also do some damage there. Rod Sims will have nothing left to veto.

        Having said all that - upvote for a profitable deal!

          I hear you. And we dont even ask pollies about local industries and effect of offshoring jobs. What are local Australian gonna do?

        •  

          I read somewhere that 70% of Australians work in service jobs, so we basically all just go round serving each other coffees.

          •  

            @therog1: My local shopping malls definitely shows this. Clothing details closing down everywhere and replaced by eateries. The whole mall feels like a giant food court

  •  

    When we need to activate the card by?

  •  

    Only for the first month.

  •  

    amaysim SIM comes pre-activated. Strategies previously suggested to stop this: 1. Pay with PayPal and delay verifying your account & ID, 2. Port-in a number, 3. Chat with customer service to ask for adjustment.

    • +2 votes

      A variant on 2 is to say you're going to port in a number when ordering, then choose a new number on activation.

    •  

      Or just call them once you insert into phone. In fact it tends to recognise that it has been added to phone and after a day or two one will receive a TXT saying they have reset start date.
      Sidenote:If you want to port, you need to do at time of ordering.

      •  

        Start date resets had not worked for my last 4 amaysim deals. I don't care as I get paid to take the SIM cards and they overlap each other.

    •  

      when you mean by pre-activated? thought of get 4 of this for my cousins who gonna stay few weeks and over 2 months…

      • +2 votes

        Pre-activation: amaysim starts counting the 28 days as soon as the SIM card leaves its fulfillment centre. Say it takes 3 days to get to you by post and another 2 days before you put it in your mobile. You'll only get 23 days.

    •  

      It's simple. Don't verify your ID until you are ready to start using the SIM. If you do this then the SIM will only activate after this time. I have done this on multiple occasions (more than 8) and this has always been the case.

      •  

        amaysim is satisfied with credit/debit card as ID. I cannot delay verification because I paid by CC.

  •  

    Is the limit of about 6 prepaid SIMs per person actually checked and enforced? If so, this deal may be a waste of the limit.

  •  

    What does it mean by new customer? I ended amaysim 1 year ago, but I’m keen on getting this for a free burrito and Hey You meal
    I’m probably not considered a new customer as I already had an account ages ago right?

  •  

    Can I use different email address but the same shipping address?

    Thanks done.

    Remember to change the recharge method to BPAY.

    Thanks for posting TA! So weird how you forgot the Shopback cashback for the same promo ;)

    Belong is better, $10 for 2GB. Hope to get a deal from Belong TA.

    Tightarse, how long do we have to activate the SIM after purchase? If I was to purchase it on 31st March then what would be the last day that I can activate it?

    • -1 vote

      It comea pre-activated… Read the above comments

      •  

        Incorrect unless Amaysim have suddenly changed their policy in the past month. I have ordered multiple SIM cards from Amaysim and on only one occasion hsa it been pre-activated. For these SIM cards I verify my ID when I want to use the SIM card (not when I order it). Also when porting to Amaysim there is no way that the SIM card can be pre-activated because you port when you want to not at the time of ordering. For the one SIM that was pre-activated, after inserting it into my phone I received a text message from Amaysim to say that they would be restarting the time period. Plus reading through past deals people have asked via Amaysim Chat to reset the time period and there have been no problem doing this.

        Tightarse can you help?

  •  

    Just purchased one. Thank you, it’s a good deal :)

  •  

    Anyone else got charged 2x $1 on their CC?

    Activated mine today (porting from Voda) and after porting, received an SMS saying that my As You Go is below $2 and that I need to rechrge. Logged into my Amaysim account and see 2 plans active assigned to the same mobile number - As You Go and 1GB Unlimited.

    Anyone experience the same thing?

  •  

    Hi Everyone, from the other old deal when u purchase $10 plan and $40 cashreward, it is still pending in cashrewards as approval date 23 April.
