    this only for ANZ employees?

    •  

      Nah everyone who is a part of it, he just linked to the ANZ page.

      •  

        Nope, not for Telstra employees

      •  

        $714.45 for me, not ANZ.

  •  

    @Hucklent i could only verify for ANZ, but must be for all other eligible employees i guess

  •  

    Be interesting to see what the A50 is listed for when it goes open market.

        Can any business join the EPP?

        •  

          lol no

            @lostn: So it isn't a real deal then if the general population can't access it.

            •  

              @Ben Kenobi: It's a deal for some people. It was clearly labeled in the title. No different than posts from JB Commercial, Costco, and Good Guys Commercial, etc.

              Just like free google play apps. Some people use iPhones and can't make use of it. Still gets posted for those in which it is accessible.

              If your retort is going to be, but an iPhone user can still buy an Android phone and use it, then my answer to you is, anyone can go get a job at ANZ, Westpac, Coles, and every other company with EPP and access this deal.

      I wouldn't call it blowing money if it's on something you use several times a day, and it's effectiveness improves the quality of many facets of life.
      $824 is what, the leftover money from 1 pay check?
      Imagine buying a home or luxury vehicle if you think $824 is a lot of money.

      •  

        yes…. like a good whisky :-)

      •  

        Money blown is just that. Regardless on what the product is. To say this improves a way of life, wow. Time to start living.

        •  

          Having faster phone with more storage and a higher quality camera definitely is an improvement. Before I switched to my current phone a year ago I had a 5yr old one, the camera was alright but not great and it had gotten so slow that just switching between apps I wasting minutes every time I used my phone for awhile as the previous apps would close out and I'd have to constantly renavigate the same sections.

          My current phone cost a little under $650 but I plan to keep it for a few years anyway, it's made a huge difference to my day where I can just quickly check things and switch between a few apps and I often don't carry my proper camera with me so having a better camera on hand is fantastic.

          I'd say it's definitely worth it if your phone is a few years old already and you don't feel the need to buy a new phone every 6-12months.

    Get a pixel 3a. I had a S9+ r replaced it and the pixel 3a smokes it.

    •  

      Didn't have an S9+, but the Pixel 3a is the real deal. Couldn't be happier with it!

      Puts my S7 to shame.

      64GB of non-expandable storage is a shame in 2019.

        Unlimited storage for photos. Close to stock android and none of that crappy bixby or the bixby button.

        I made the move and it's fine. People overload their phones with Junk. Camera which is what I actually care about is superior.

        I also grabbed the 3a for 550

        •  

          Where did you get it for 550?

          • +1 vote

            @quincymac: JB Hifi was offering $100 off the Pixel 3a/XL, with the trade-in of any working Android phone.

            I bought mine second hand (but pretty much brand new) for $480 on eBay :)

        •  

          Agree with this. Most important thing for me in a phone is great battery life, and great camera. This knocks both of those outta the park.

          Couldn't be happier with my 3a! :)

      Yea but its screen and looks are so much worse, resemble something that would have come out in 2015

      •  

        I don't notice the difference in screens. It looks fine if you ask me but I usually have my phone in protective cases which sorta makes every phone look the same lol.

      •  

        I don't know if you've actually seen the screen hands-on, but I can tell you that I was worried about this - until I got my phone. Screen is amazing - absolutely perfect! :)

      Galaxy S9 has LTE-A Pro Cat 18 (1200/150 Mbit/s) compared to 3A LTE-A Cat 11 (600/75 Mbit/s),
      Galaxy S9 has FM radio feature
      Galaxy S9 has USB 3.1 vs 3a USB 2.0
      Galaxy S9 has more network bands
      Galaxy S9 has Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 (2800mhz) / Adreno 630 GPU and 3A has Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SDM670 (only 2000mhz)
      Galaxy S9 has 256GB storage w/ expandable MicroSD vs 3A has 64gb storage and no expansion
      Galaxy S9 has 1440P Super Amoled screen (568 ppi) vs 3A 1080P OLED screen (444 ppi)
      Galaxy S9 has iris scanner for face unlock feature

      Both phones have 4GB ram (a bit low for 2019) and run Android 9 Pie

      You can see there are a lot of compromises buying the 3a and it’s definitely not aimed at the flagship market whereas even though the S9 is a little bit older (Jan 2018 vs Feb 2019) it still shows what being a flagship means and kicks the 3a outta the park in features/specs

        Both phones have 4GB ram (a bit low for 2019) and run Android 9 Pie

        If you buy the 256GB model, the S9+ has 6GB RAM.

        Both Pixel 3 and S9 are of the same gen (3A seems like a mid range phone). Hardware wise, it's a wash, but Samsung has higher internal memory plus SD card support which for me puts it over the edge. I can accept a small internal memory if it is expandable, or big internal but no expandable memory, but if you get neither, that's a bummer.

        The Pixel has the camera going for it and free google photos storage for a few years. The S9 still has a very good camera with high speed (slow mo) support.

        The biggest factor though is the price. The Pixel series releases 6 months later than the Galaxy S series each year, with the same hardware, but by then the Galaxy will have had some big price cuts and sales, and ends up being much better value for money. Also, only the bigger sized Pixel has OLED screens. The smaller one has IPS. Don't know if that is still true but it used to be.

    these prices by OP is for westpac employees (coz i am one so confirmed lol) plus if you spend over $1000 then you get a $150 discount

      If you bothered to click on the link, it literally says ANZ…or read the comment from OP saying they csn only verify the price fro ANZ.

        Actually works for both, though.

  •  

    So how do we mortals access this if we don't know anyone at ANZ?

      refer to this

      •  

        Just to add the Australian Government link works for Victorian Education department staff (@edumail.vic.gov.au) and is way better pricing given than what you get registering for the Samsung education store which also accepts this email domain.

      You check the classifieds to see if they are hiring.

    The $714 S9+ 256GB deal turned out to be the cheapest ever. It is clearance after all and EPP at that.

    I was able to claim shoppers protection for it. Bought the phone on behalf of my sister late last year during the free 512GB SD card promotion. So in the end, paid $714 for a phone and owned it while it was still the flagship phone, and got a free 512GB MicroSD card to go with it.

    Not too shabby at all. The alternative at the time was a Pixel 3XL with 128GB which would have cost about $1300 and no free microSD card.

    I think a good time to buy a current phone is around this time. By this time next year, it will be clearance priced, and you will have owned a brand new model, paying only clearance price.
