2080

Same offer as last month's TGG deal but with a JB Hi-Fi gift card instead and can be purchased from Telstra directly (for the first time). There is also a $65 plan with $300 gift card, however you are better going off with TGG instead for that, as per this deal it has a $400 gift card.

Full details:

Offer:

$45/mth JB Hi-Fi BYO plan (min cost $540 over 12 months) – 50GB (15GB + 35GB bonus data) and a $200 JB Hi-Fi eGift Card
$65/mth JB Hi-Fi BYO plan (min cost $780 over 12 months) – 60GB (40GB + 20GB bonus data) and a $300 JB Hi-Fi eGift Card

Eligibility:

Only customers taking up a new Telstra mobile service or transferring a number from another carrier to a JB Hi-Fi BYO Mobile Plan are eligible to receive a JB Hi-Fi eGift Card.

Exclusion:

If you’re using a Boost or Telstra Pre-Paid mobile number to take up a JB Hi-Fi BYO Mobile Plan, you’re upgrading an existing service on the Telstra Mobile Network – which means you won’t receive a JB Hi-Fi eGift Card.

Offer period:

Limited time offer - 12th to 25th August 2019

    How come the gift card value drops $100 every month. Was $500 now down to $200

  • +2 votes

    Boost prepaid to telstra post paid no gift card. Ludicrous.

    •  

      Boost is telstra without the advertising.

      Might as well say telstra to telstra port no gift card?
      Ludicrous

      • +1 vote

        From my understanding, Boost is not Telstra and are an independently owned businesss. They do however have a deal with Telstra to work along side and leverage off their network and offerings.
        Can only guess that its all about getting users who are not part of the Telstra network in any form to switch and in turn JB get their Telstra commissions?

          Seems telstra wholesale to telstra full is fine thpuoh as I took advantage of the free hisense tv offering a few months ago while switching from woolworths.

          I'm porting out to vodafone this month in preperation forthe next good deal.

    Looks pretty good deal for a 12 months plan, seriously considering moving from Vodafone

    • +3 votes

      I made the switch back to Telstra today after 12 months on Kogan (vodaphone)… you won’t regret it!

      •  

        funny you said that, I am on Vodafone and really happy overall - currently getting close to 40 Mbps on 4G, Wifey has Telstra and she is getting 26 Mbps speed.

          Hmmm I work in a place with lead lined walls and often got SOS.. possibly a black spot! But I agree, majority of time was alright when I wasn’t at work.

    •  

      Was with belong kept dropping out, so I ported to Vodafone and it would drop when in shopping centre or under cover parking areas. Now back at Telstra and no issues.

    Quick question, if I sign up to this then decide I want to resign with Telstra with a handset would I be able to end this contract early?
    Thanks in advanced!

    How best to get this as an existing Telstra customer?

  • -1 vote

    Think I'll port out now and grab this when it comes round again. 25% staff discount makes it pretty good.

    Belong is not excluded.. that's good.

  • +1 vote

    It's worth noting that current telstra customers can upgrade too but they do not get the $x voucher.

  • +2 votes

    Too bad international calling isn't included, and a calling pack can't be added (according to the link above). Otherwise might have jumped on this…

  •  

    is there a student discount for telstra plan?

    •  

      You'd be better off trying to get it on a business plan (if you have an ABN) and get the $5/$10 porting discount. They'll probably reject it, but worth a try. Got me an extra 10GB.

      Afaik no student discount exists.

    cashrewards should apply from what i can see

      can tightarse confirm? i notice when you go to the site, CR widget pops up and suggests it does but assume it's just the telstra.com domain… this would be a sensational sweetener if it does.

    Similar to this long running deal direct with JB Hi Fi:
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/407199
    I've heard users have been able to abuse some weird ETC waive to get endless JB GCs. Which I do not encourage but up to you.

    Besides that you should be able to Live Chat Telstra Rep after you sign up and ask for $10 port in credit that will be applied to the life of your contract.

    • +1 vote

      No more $10 port in I believe.
      Got a resounding no from two reps today

      •  

        Really? I just did it last week. Interesting.

        •  

          I think it ended last week…
          If I'm wrong someone please correct me I'll go and look for another rep haha

          •  

            @uwu: i tried last wk - was told it ended in may….

            •  

              @spoonmugen: Read a lot of reports (here on OzB) that they seemed to have got it in the last few weeks so I certainly don't think that's true :(

              •  

                @uwu: where? all the chatter i've heard is that its gone….
                ive asked 3 different occassions with telstra chat 24x7

                happy if others got the deal and you can prove it wrong/link me to the deal though

                •  

                  @spoonmugen: yep gone.
                  few people were reporting it was working on the previous jb deal but I've tried asking many reps and to no avail.

                  If anyone else gets it working please report :)

                •  

                  @spoonmugen: A friend literally did it Thursday.

                    @JoJoker: The port-in credit has ended, AFAIK there are no current deals for $10 until recontract. Got a discount on my plan but in Siebel it shows as 12 months only

                    •  

                      @Optussux: Was on 24x7 and asked about the $10 port in discount. Was told that it's still available

                        @mengqing: Ongoing $10 port in credit ended for all new plans launched in June and where replaced with a $5/$10 credit with a 6/12 month duration as the new plans are all casual with no fixed term which made the ongoing $10 credit redundant (like my job 😂)

                        As the JB plans are a different plan family with a contracted term you might be able to get a $10 ongoing credit still. (I would be pretty confident the system would let it be added it but it would be against business rules)

                        Source: worked for Telstra until recently

                      •  

                        @mengqing: do you have the log? would like to try my luck again lol

  •  

    Good deal, I got this last year in store at JB.
    The restriction on gift cards for Boost customers was around last time too. From memory you had to be on another provider for a minimum of a month to be eligible for the gift card; less than that and they would see you in their system as being too recently on Telstra. (However, comments in the old thread suggested some people had luck with JB salespeople who put it through for them regardless so YMMV).

  •  

    Is it true that the reception is on these JB Hi-Fi plans is not the same as an 'actual' Telstra direct plan? If you can buy direct from Telstra, that's great.

    • +2 votes

      Im not sure where you heard that. My plan (purchased in store last year) is a full telstra plan (im billed by telstra not JB, have telstra online access etc. All JB did was initiate the port and I assume get a small cut. Reception is fine and a speed test I just did then (6.25pm) was 174mbps down 50.7up with 27ms ping - so Id assume thats the full 4Gx network.

    •  

      No, not true, they’re using the full telstra network. Had a telstra chat rep tell me jb only gets 20% of the network, I lodged a complaint and the complaints team assured me it’s the full network

    •  

      Jb is just a reseller of telstra plans, you are on telstra's 4gx network.

    •  

      I remember when there was a jb deal last time heaps people said its not true telstra

      •  

        Trump disease? Seriously tho, no surprise there. Heaps of accurate and useful info on OzB but also quite a bit of shyte.

    I took up the Good Guys $60 plan last week,would it be possible to downgrade my plan for free?

    •  

      Possibly, go to the link and select to “upgrade” your existing service, see if says there is an ETC

    •  

      Yes will work.
      Just use live chat 24x7.

      I downgraded to $50/m for free.

    Pass no international calls.

  •  

    This plan just restarted? Thought it's been since last year?

  •  

    The Telcos continue to refer to "Bonus Data" without mentioning how long it might last or what might cause it's removal.

    Is it bonus for a limited period or for however long one sticks with the plan?

  •  

    Probably get downvoted for this but is this available in store? I am guessing no since the link takes me to the Telstra website but it’s worth an ask.

  •  

    This deal has been live for over a year now. And from what they told me when I signed up for it, it will be available until Telstra let them do something better

  •  

    what phone do we get with the contract? A 3G Nokia or a ZTE ?

  •  

    Good deal if you need all that data.

    •  

      Agreed; I am satisfied with my Belong $10/month (+50GB rollover).
      This plan works out to be $28.33/month ($45/month plan min. cost $540 - $200 JB giftcard)
      I use wifi mostly, so the Belong rollover will last me 12 months

      •  

        I’m satisfied with Kogan and catch in my family. We have 4 sims amongst us (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and by paying upfront it costs me the equivalent of $45 a month for 4 sims, with 13gb each on 3 kogan and 17gb on catch. Next year will be even cheaper as catch have upgraded the $135 ($270 full price) with 150gb. That plan is very hard to beat imo. If you don’t need Telstra and live in metro no point paying more

    For anyone willing to try, I just contacted chat to see if I could get some bonus data thrown in for free (because my NBN has been on the fritz and I need some extra data this weekend). Long story short, 'Richard' offered to change my plan from $59 plan (with Telstra), ending this November, to the $45 plan without any cancellation fees and INCLUDING the JB voucher!
    So all in all, I've extended my contract for 9 months, saving $14 per month, and getting 2.5x my data!
    Win.

    •  

      Anyone else replicated this ?

    •  

      I'd be interested to see if you actually get the voucher. I was told that if I made a business account and ported my consumer number over that I would definitely get the gift card. However, I've now been told by 5 people and 2 JB people that this isn't correct and I won't be eligible for the gift card as an existing telstra number WON'T receive it.

      …so I'm hoping you get yours!

        Yeh it might be too good to be true. Time will tell. I need to go in store to find out. YMMV
