Telstra 12-Month SIM Only Plan $65/Mth 60GB Data + $500 JB Hi-Fi Gift Card OR Several Handset Offers @ JB Hi-Fi (Port-in Offer)

4680

Hi all,
Just ported in my number back into Telstra using this amazing offer from JB-HiFi.

Basically you get $500 JB Hi-Fi Gift Card (with no expiry) when you sign on to JB Hi-Fi Telstra 12 Months Plan for $65/month which offers Unlimited Local calls and 60GB Data.

For those who would rather buy a handset, there are several offers as listed below:
(I managed to have a quick glance at their internal email, so sharing the love)

Samsung Note 8 - $199 upfront
Oppo Find X 256GB - $199 upfront
Huawei Mate 20 - $199 upfront
Samsung S10e - $399 upfront
Samsung Note 9 128GB - $599 upfront

LATEST UPDATE (13/06),
From 13/06 to 16/06, instead of the $500 OR the Handset Offers already mentioned above, you can also choose to avail one of the following offers:
$0 Upfront: Hisense 43" 43R6 TV OR XBOX One X 1TB Console OR iPad 128GB 6th Gen (Wi-Fi model) - Update (16/06): This particular option is now extended to 19th June ans is also open to new customers

$49 Upfront: Apple Watch 42mm (Series 3)
$99 Upfront: iPhone 7 (32GB)
$799 Upfront: Oppo Reno 5G

All offers are for port-in customers only. [Having said that, I ported out of Telstra for couple of hours this morning and managed to port right back in using this offer without any issues - so worth a go!]

Note: From what I understand, this particular offer may not have any signage to promote it in the stores, so do try mentioning it to JB Hi-Fi staff in order to avail the offer. This offer expires on 23 June but if keen I would recommend getting it sooner than later (just in case it gets withdrawn earlier). Have a great day folks!

Edit: To answer a common query from comments - This Plan does not include Peace of Mind (POM) data OR $10 International Calling Pack

Edit 2: For those keen on scoring even higher bang for the bucks, for an extra $4/month you can easily upgrade this plan to Telstra’s $89 BYO plan (currently discounted to $69/month) via Online 24x7 chat, thereby giving you (hold your breath):

Extra 30GB data (total of 90GB data including Peace of Mind (POM) data)

Unlimited international talk & text to 15 selected countries (i.e. Bangladesh, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Lebanon, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, UK, USA and Vietnam)

International roaming - 2GB data roaming and unlimited talk & text in eligible countries (Argentina, Austria, Bangladesh, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Laos, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nauru, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovak Rep, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, UAE, UK, USA, Uruguay, Vanuatu, Vietnam)

If you do international travel and/or make overseas calls to the above destinations this is the BEST VALUE mobile plan ever (in my humble opinion) as you'll be effectively paying just $27.3/month for all of the above!

    You got all that from a quick glance? Your memory is better than mine :)

    The Find X for $199 is bloody tempting.

  •  

    So you get a $500 gift card (instead of needing to use it on a handset), but with 20gb less data?

    • +7 votes

      Yup you can use it on whatever you want and whenever you want (no expiry) plus it only 12 months of contract commitment. Heaps better than the 24 months offer. No-brainer!

        Nice. I'm a bit annoyed as I ported in this morning using the $45 deal with the $200 gift card. Wish the sales guy told me about this deal!

        • +2 votes

          Probably didnt even know about it.

            @garetz: I'm pretty sure he didn't.

            He knew all about Ozbargain, so I'm guessing he'll read this and will know about it now. Just wish JB advertised it properly, or at least informed their staff of these things properly.

          At least hit up Telstra chat and see if they'll bump you up to the 60gb for $49.

          •  

            @whitelie: But you won't get the gc if you go directly with Telstra, would you?

            • +4 votes

              @televisi: The JB plan is a Telstra service. Sign up at JB, get the gift card, then hit up Telstra chat and say "I just ported in this morning but didn't realise there was a 60GB for $49 plan. Any chance I can change?" and see what they say. Could probably even sign up on this $65 deal and hit them up for a price drop as they're doing 60GB for $59 for existing customers. Scoring the $500 gift card and dropping to $49/month would be the best deal but might take some convincing.

                @whitelie: Lol, username checks out, thanks

              •  

                @whitelie: Just had a chat with Telstra Cust. care, the guy said that $49/month/12 month deal is only valid if you are a new customer.Since after signing up with JB on their Telstra plan you become a customer meaning you can't go for the deal which is there for new customers.you can only go for the ones that are for existing customers.Now my question is, when do you become a Telstra customer? is that after signing up with JB or after porting your no. in Telstra? OR both these things are same?

                •  

                  @slackerman: I would get on the chat and try again. There's another post further down this thread that did exactly what I'm saying.
                  $500 GC from this $65/month plan, traded in for the Pixel 3a for $49 outright then spoke to Telstra chat and got the plan down to $49/month.

                • +1 vote

                  @slackerman: its not the $49 deal that we're after .. its the $69 which has a $20 credit at the moment (i.e = $49). From $65 to $69 is an upgrade ;)

                  •  

                    @Cricket: Nah mate that $69 deal is not allowed for exisiting Telstra users and you become one once you signup with JB through their $65 plan. As an existing customer you can only upgrade to existing users’ $69 plan which is reduced to $59 at the moment.

                    •  

                      @slackerman: Na - I just got the $49/month deal. Effectively $588 -$500 = $88 over 12 months. Sweet.

                      Just try your luck a few time with online chat. Totally worth it. See Whitelie's advice a few posts down.

          •  

            @whitelie: Not worth it without the extra $300 in gift card value. Might go to the store tomorrow and talk to the staff. See if there is anything they can do.

    Do you know if this includes peace of mind data?

      No unfortunately

    • +2 votes

      what's is peace of mind data?

      • +2 votes

        Peace of Mind Data

        With Peace of Mind Data, you won’t be charged if you go over your monthly data allowance. Instead, your speed will be capped at 1.5Mbps (which isn’t suitable for HD video or high speed applications, and means that some web pages, social media content and files may take longer to load), and slowed further during busy periods. The speeds you actually receive may vary depending on a range of factors including your device, location, user numbers and download sources.

        Peace of Mind Data is for personal use in a smartphone or tablet in Australia only, isn’t shareable, and the FairPlay Policy applies.

  •  

    Is there anyway to share data with another telstra sim?

  •  

    international calls?

  •  

    Good deal OP bro

  •  

    Reckon telstra chat will give us the $10 port in discount?

  •  

    Is it phone credit or gift card?

  • +10 votes

    Can confirm the existence of all OP has posted, but I just want to point out:

    "I managed to have a quick glance at their internal email"

    • Proceeds to list 5 different phones with the correct prices for all of them, not to mention the fact you've used the exact formatting and wording of the phone names in the internal memo (eg. Samsung Note 9 instead of Samsung Note 9 128 GB, and Oppo Find X 256GB instead of simply saying Oppo Find X without listing the storage like you did for the other 4 phones…). All this from memory, no less.

    Call me cynical but I feel it's more believable you took a photo or wrote this all down or you just work at JB/know someone that does vs. you having a near-eidetic memory to remember all that from a quick glance…

    Regardless, this is a good deal for people after those phones, but of course the BYO with the $500 GC will probably be the more attractive option as it is a GC that can be used on anything, rather than being only a phone credit that can only be applied to an outright purchase (which is what it used to be for the 24m plan).

      Haha, a simple mind hack mate - see what's for cheapest (i.e. $199 in this case) and club them together, then proceed to remaining one. I would have loved being called a wizard but unfortunately there wasn't any rocket science here :P :)

      • +6 votes

        Fair play if that's actually the case, I do still find it odd how you listed the names of the phone exactly as they were in the memo.

        But regardless, I can't complain about some free publicity. I'm sure this will bring in some new customers who would not have come in had they not seen this.

        •  

          Only Find X had the storage written in front so didn't knew storage of others, but I'll update the post now that you have provided more details. Thanks for your comment and happy selling!

      Before the internet and everyone having a phone, this skill wasnt that rare. It's just called having an average memory. It doesnt require eidetic memory.

    Is it possible to get the additional $20 off per month as shown here bringing it down to $45?

    •  

      Good question, I would also like to know. The current Telstra deal for $49 gives you 60GB for 12 months plus international calls and texts to 15 countries and peace of mind data so technically a better deal in terms of inclusions and price. Obviously no $500 gift card though

      • +1 vote

        Apparently no you can’t switch over to $49/month plan because once you sign up JBs $65 plan you would become a Telstra consumer and the Telstra 49 deal is valid only for new customers.Existing customers have to be on the plan they alredy are or can switch to the ones that are for existing customers.

        •  

          True
          If Shekster (rep) could confirm/deny this I would appreciate it.

        •  

          Not always true. I just got downgraded to $49 plan (well technically upgraded to $69 plan with $20/month discount). Worth Trying your luck with the online chat.

      •  

        If I get the time ill give Jb a call and see if they will do anything about it if I remember ill report back here.
        At this stage, I would rather have peace of mind data.

    •  

      No, it’s only off that Telstra BYO plan not the jbhifi plan as they are seperate plans with seperate offers.
