      That is the 24 Month option.

      • Nope. 24 mths is 80GB

        • +2

          This 12month sim plan promotion is running for 2 days only includes 60GB data and a $500 gift card on anything in store.
          Gift card also has no expiry date if you don't want to use it straight away.

          • @Thelegend23: If i want to use the sim for home internet. What do i need to do? Like what do i need to buy so that i can plug the sim card in and use it as internet only?

  • I thought Telstra scuppered long term contracts.

    • Telstra on the Telstra plans are month to month.
      This is jbhifi Telstra plan on the telstra network.

      • -2

        Incorrect, there is no such thing as "JB Hifi Telstra".

        JB Hifi is simply a Telstra dealer that has exclusive telstra contracts only available to them for promotional use.
        All plans are direct Telstra plans with the same inclusions as any other Telstra plan(Telstra app, Telstra Plus rewards etc.)

        • +1

          Sorry, the name of the plan isn't called a jbhifi plan, the full name is 'JB HiFi mobile BYO plan $65'.


          If that's not a JB HiFi plan maybe you could tell me what I'm paying for then??

          Also not the same inclusions, as there is no international option, no free 5G trial and no month to month Contract.

  • -3

    Only used to purchase phones >= $999. $300 gift card if <$999

    • +1

      That is the 24 Month option.

      • Maybe but if you go to the URL in this deal it confirms what Jazza is saying. So the URL needs to be fixed.

        • URL is the website as you can see at the top of the page, the deals page will i assume be updated tomorrow when the deal goes live.

  • +3

    My plan is finishing in a month… if this was available to existing Telstra customers. I would’ve definitely signed up.

    • +7

      They'll never do that for existing. Just Port out when your contract expires temporarily atleast…

    • Same.

    • Port out and port back in the same day?

    • Wife was in the same situation so she ported out to the $15 for 3months Catch Connect plan and she's waiting for something better than this

  • Says $400 gift card on $65 12 month contract.

    • +1

      Is their long standing deal, this deal is live tomorrow.

  • +2

    is the 10 dollar port in discount still easy to get?

    • Yup. Just keep going through Telstra live chats and ask for a reference number once they agree to it. They might offer the port in credit for 6 months at first but just say that you were told 12 months by a previous agent.

      • I would disagree that it’s easy to get, but I was eventually able to get $10 off for 6 months after many chats and in store visits. But then again I also switched to the $45 plan, so that might have made it harder for me. Were you able to get $10 off for 12 months recently?

  • I guess the obvious question is can you combine with the $150 on the pixel and just cancel immediately…

    • +3

      Step 1. Get this deal.
      Step 2. Combine with pixel thingy
      Step 3. Pay $390 cancellation fees
      Step 4. Winning?

      • Whats the pixel thingy? Can you explain. Keen to pick one up for my sis.

      • -1

        Also get a ding on your credit report

        • For cancelling a contract and paying it out?

      • Outta curiosity why is their cancellation fee only 6 months?

      • +4

        If you get lucky in Telstra chat you don’t even have to pay the cancellation fee. I got the 12 month plan with the $500 credit towards a phone and I ended up switching to a monthly plan after a week and then ported out after a few more days all without a fee.

        • +3

          Need to be extremely lucky now.

        • Did you get your bill?
          What was it?

          • @PlaneProof: Around $27 cause I didn’t switch over straight away.

  • Can I get the pixel $150 gift card as along with this?

    • +1

      Yes, the $150 gift card will give to you after you get the pixel 4.

      • Just pre-ordered the pixel, porting from Optus took a few minutes.

  • I switched from Telstra to Optus last december -reckon they'll let me port in for the deal?

    • +2

      Obviously… Some, myself included, ported out for minutes… Though they say 1 Month, it's all luck.

      • Oh awesome, thanks for the heads up! I thought it might be 12 months.

        • Yeah I ported out for 2 days, guy warned me that it needs to be at least a month or else the port in will be rejected… And I'm now on the plan, have been for 13 months so far

        • 1 month was the rule we were always told, but even then I’ve never seen it enforced.

      • Just tried to do this at the JB Bourke Street store. Their MNC terminals were all down so the sales staff member was forced to call through a manual connection. Operator over the phone enforced the 30 day rule (I had ported out yesterday). Sales staff member apologised saying 'they never used to check'. Going to try another store this afternoon/ tomorrow.

  • beware,telstra postpaid user transfer number to other carrier will charge $8.

    • +2

      since when?

      • The contract details page has been stating it for years now, but I've never been charged the port out fee.

        • Mine didn’t mention anything about porting our fee. Not sure if it is mobile site.

          • @allenhori: Mine said a port out fee but when I asked live chat about it, they said it was abolished, and it wasn't on my final bill when I ported out

    • +2

      Only if you are stupid enough to cancel your plan, they charge an $8 fee to keep your number from going into the number abyss. If you port first out there is no fee.

  • Sorry to ask this question, can you buy iPhone with this gift card ?

    • +2

      If you mean the iPhone you intend to purchase with this deal then yes. I got this deal a couple weeks ago, and the person serving me put it right through. I didn’t even know you could keep it separate haha

  • +20

    Can confirm this is true as I feel bad that OP is already being questioned within minutes of posting haha.

    Although in saying that, I'm interested to know how they found out about this as this was under a 'do not advertise' condition nationwide until it actually begins (idk why they do this, but it's just how it is). If you're associated OP make sure you check the box as our store has literally been banned from posting deals here due to cases like this…

    Anyways further details:

    • $500 gift card
    • $65 BYO 12 Month Plan
    • Only available from 22/10 to 23/10
    • Available for both consumer and business plans
    • Must be porting in or a new service
    • Is Telstra still having the Porting issue?
      Does porting request expire and need to initiate porting again, or will it stay in 'porting' forever until it has actually been ported?
      Also, if there was an issue with porting due to incorrect DOB or name, will Jb/Telstra/who ever initiates the request, know details are incorrect or will the system just stay in "porting" or say something like "error/unsuccessful"?

      • +4

        Supposedly has been resolved, was a nightmare a couple days ago as I had done quite a few ports with customers only for it to all go to hell…

        Have not been in since so can't say personally however some of my coworkers mentioned that ports for their customers are starting to go through now.

        If there is an error with names/DOB it will get stuck essentially for a bit unless you or I realises the error after which we'd need to contact telstra to rectify it.

        • +1

          @shekster @ughhh - I have been waiting 3 weeks to port in. So it seems it's still happening.

          • @StonedWizard: Same here - just gonna buy outright and ignore this “deal”

          • @StonedWizard: Just ported ~ 20 minutes Optus > Telstra

            • @blehgg: @blehgg - Good to hear, my comment wasn't to deter people, more to raise awareness that you may potentially be waiting.

              • @StonedWizard: all good ~ my comment was purely to you ~ to let you know it appears to be fixed

                • @blehgg: Not for everyone. Even when the issue started, some had no problem in porting.

                  • @Ughhh: ahhh damn… guess i was just lucky

    • So, can I setup a new service, then call Telstra to port to month by month, then move out?

    • +3

      Any word on if they're going to up the $45 plan back to a $200 voucher?

    • -1

      Hi @shekster, can you confirm if jb will allow international inclusions (such as 10 or 25 countries that Telstra and other resellers offer)? I'm willing to skimp on some of the data inclusions.

      • There are never international calls included in the JB plans.

    • Only available one day? Damnit I'm still on Boost which I guess wouldn't be eligible :(

    • Will there be an increase on the $45 plan at all?

    • I already have a Telstra account, if I bring a number from Amaysim to add to my Telstra account will it qualify?

      ** Edit - someone answered this below.

    • +1

      It's only a 2 day sale. How effective will it be if advertising starts on day 1 and it's during weekday?

      JB, you've done it again!!

  • can i just hold the gift card to use on whatever? the previous deals ive seen is it has to be used on a phone.

    • +3

      Yes you can keep the GC for whatever. GC also has no expiry.

  • +1

    Does anyone know if I can sign up, use the $500 gift card to pre order the Pixel 4 which then includes a bonus $150 JB hi-fi coupon?

    • +1

      Why not?

  • +3

    Its a shame $65 plan has no international calls included.

    • I'm also holding out coz of this

    • Also shame about no Peace of Mind Data 🤧

      • +1

        The Peace of Mind Data is a shame itself - it is unethical and almost criminal that it was designed to rip customer off by either not using the full data allowance ( out of fear of excessive charge), or getting fee for a service which costs them nothing ( cutting off data once allowance reached is no rocket science)… I hope ACCC will heed this shortly.

  • +2

    If you're thinking to port to Telstra, be prepared for a long wait. Took advantage of the previous same offer, two weeks and still waiting for the port. Telstra appears to have major issues with porting at the moment.

    You wont get the credit (or the phone if the credit applies to the phone) until the port is completed.

    • Does this mean your old service will be unavailable while you’re waiting?

      • No, your old sim will stay active as usual, assuming you have credit on it.

  • +2

    Do they still have the deal where it's $10 less a month for porting in?

  • Is that 60GB of data per month?

    • +1

      Yes. Per month.

  • +1

    Are there any links to the $65 plan on the Telstra website so I can see the details, cancellation charges etc?

  • +1

    Tad frustrating for those of us that work 9-5…

    Are there any Melbourne Metro stores that run later hours?

    • I know, wish it was on Thursday when they open late.

      • You can check the website for hours;
        The JB Hifi store at Chadstone is open until 9pm every weekday, and Prahran will be open until 7pm.

        • Thanks, unfortunately I'm rural so it's a bit harder to find them open.

    • Bourke St in Melb CBD opens till 9pm every night, so does Chadstone

  • +1

    Anyone know if it's still possible to change it to the $45 plan through Telstra online chat? And $10 port in credit still available?
