Google Pixel 4 $549 / 4XL $779 with Telstra 60GB $65pm Plan (Min Cost $1329 / $1559) Port-in/New Customers + $150 GC @ JB Hi-Fi

691

Hey guys,

Current JB Hi-Fi gift card offer (valid till 23/10 but sure to pop up again) gives you $500 off any phone when signing up to the associated Telstra plan. So brings down the Pixel 4 / 4XL by quite a bit.

To make the math easier (includes price of the plan):
Over 12 months - Pixel 4 $110.75 (total $1329) / Pixel 4XL $129.92 (total $1559)
Over 24 months - Pixel 4 $87.88 (total $2109) / Pixel 4XL $97.46 (total $2339)

If you use this with the pre-order deal on the Pixel 4 / 4XL you get a JB Hi-Fi voucher for $150 which is even more of a bargain. (Get in quick for this one!)

edit: lol, everyone who is negging about better deals, there are definitely better deals out there (outright+cheaper plan) or even better ones coming (like this one coming Thursday!)

when I posted this it seemed like a good deal, just trying to do a good favour here :)

    That's really great value, it's what pixels should be priced at IMO. Seems battery issues and a few other things will keep me away from Pixel generation yet again, always hoping the next generation will be the one..

    The prices listed are for the 64 models.

    Also brings Galaxy s10e down to $499, iPhone 11 to $699. Some great deals there.

      what are the battery issues?

        Pixel 4, android central was getting about 3.5 hours screen on time with some light gaming too.

        I think 4XL you can expect an hour more.

        in my opinion it kind of negates the whole premise of the device. I mean, yeah, wonderful camera for still photos, but if it can't last a good day out taking photos and you need a USB battery pack then the fumbling and bulkiness of it all kind of defeats the purpose of having a camera in a slim easy to carry device. I doubt people buy these phones just to take photos on their way to and from work.

      Why do people think just cause it hasn't been released we can't judge battery life? If there was any significant increase, I'm sure they would've mentioned it. Slightly more power efficient chip but if it's the same software and same battery size then the battery life would be around the same.

        Just going by reviewers who have had the phone for almost 1.5 weeks now. Apparently 90hz screen takes a lot of juice.

    ^ what a bargain.

    Good deal. For me however I want the phone and not the plan

    you can have the $500 off with any phone, not sure if worth to post this deal.

  • +10 votes

    How is this a deal? You do realise that this does not actually reduce the cost of the phone right? You still pay the same amount. Its just over a longer period - only the upfront cost of the phone is reduced. This is not a discount or a X% of the phone.

      You get extra $150 off for pre order.

    •  

      I can’t get my head around these deals WTF, do you get $500 off of buying a new phone though, is that right? I have troubles with numbers sometimes so I’m trying to figure it all out. With a plan and a phone you can get the phone, more or less, interest free, but are locked in, though with this you have to pay more straight away, is that what you mean?

        a 60GB Tesltra sim only plan is $60 a month
        A Pixel 4 is $1049
        -$150 for preordering

        Over 12 months the total cost is $1619

        With this it's, $65 monthly 549 upfront, - 150 for preordering

        Totals to $1119. Good luck getting a Pixel 4 with 12 months of service for anywhere near that much.

        It's basically 12 months of 60GB/month telstra for $70/year. Insane deal

        •  

          Okay thanks Ark94 :) So this would be better than a plan with a phone but you have to shell out initially for the phone which is the down side, more or less?

        •  

          Insane deal? Hardly. Post-paid plans have always been about convenience, nothing more. Telstra benefits more from this 'deal' because they're signing on customers that are likely to continue to pay their high prices for an overrated service.

          If you have the money, buy the Pixel 4 outright from a retailer, and then pick yourself up a Boost pre-paid kit. You'll be far better off.

            Pixel 4 64GB outright - $1049
            Boost prepaid - $150 for 80GB/year (6.6GB/month)
            Total at 12 months: $1,199

            OR

            Pixel 4 64GB on 12-month plan - $199 outright plus $65/month ($780, 60GB/month)
            Total at 12 months: $979

            So by going for the plan, you'll be paying $220 less and getting 9x more data per month. You can port over to Boost for the second year with the $220 savings and still be ahead.

            If you wait till the outright price drops to $829 the 12-month cost will be the same, but you'll still get 9x more data on the plan.

            •  

              @eug: Most people do not and will not do that though, which is the point I was trying to make. They will continue to sign on to Telstra's contracts for pure convinience.

    A non-5G phone on Telstra? 🤔

    How do you choose plan & phone on jb website or do I need to go in there?

    I have a Pixel 2 XL128GB and I've had no issues to be honest?
    It's a great phone, I probably wouldn't upgrade for years but I'd like wireless charging.

    I was looking at the Pixel 4, camera seems a step up. I'm not sure what other phones are out there Android wise?
    I basically only use basic social media apps, I don't even use the camera much other than when I travel.

    I feel people have high expectations these days, but you can only fit so much tech in a phone.

        Sure it is, this is not a deal. It's a duplicate rewording of an actual deal.

          Don't see how it's any different to specific products highlighted in new deals after eBay 20% off codes are shared 🤷‍♂️

            @itsfree: So you think every item in JB Hifi that costs less than $500 should have a post saying how to get the item for free? It'd be ridiculous.

            It's not the same because it's a gift card that can be used on any purchase now or future. With ebay 20% off codes that makes the discount dependent on the item and only available for the duration of the sale and ebay is more of a needle in a haystack situation for finding what specific items are worth buying during a sale as well.

            This post is literally a combination of two posts, the $500 gift card post and the $150 gift card for pixel 4 post. But they missed the post about buying discounted JB Hifi gift cards so maybe someone should combine with buying JB Hifi gift cards online for 5% off and make a 3rd post! fun times

              @Dowhatuwant: The deal has 1000+ clicks, 37 upvotes and hit the front page, so regardless of your dislike for it, the greater community seems to be benefiting from it – and isn't that, ultimately, the point of OzBargain?

              No. Only items that the community is likely to be interested in. The Pixel 4 would fall under that category. You don't see everybody posting every single item on e.g. Computer Alliance's eBay store when they have 20% off.

              It's not the same because it's a gift card that can be used on any purchase now or future.

              For people who want to get a cheap Pixel 4 now, this is one way to get it.

            •  

              @Dowhatuwant: If this method gets you an item for cheaper than anywhere else, especially a flagship mobile phone then it absolutely should have a deal posted.

          •  

            @itsfree: It's not, as they shouldn't be posted either (unless a particular item is worthy of its own deal).

    Absolutely filthy. Went in on the weekend and sepecifically asked JB person helping me if there were any deals like this coming up in the next week, supposedly he checked and said no. So got the $400 GC, now 3 days later and it's bumped up to $500 - seriously!

    Went to JB HiFi this morning. I was going to sign the atelatra deal with $500 gift card. A guy showed me the pixel 4/ pixel 4 Xl and told me that Telstra is going to do a deal for pixel 4.
    The deal includes $65 per month, 12 months contract and $199 for pixel 4 handset.
    It starts on Thursday.

  •  

    the value and savings with deals have been blown out of proportion..they aren't that great when you add it all up. If you are a new phone every 2-3 years type person, the 4XL is $97.46/m for 80gb (over 24). Say you go with Optus it'd be $110/m but you can usually speak to retention and get 10-25% off your plan which makes it ($85*.75)+$25 = $88.75 & you get a Harmon Kardon Citation One & 20gb/m extra data for your troubles.

    Do your calculations based on a 12/24month period before you make these impulse purchases.

      Hmm, retention team? So you sign up for a contract then immediately ask to disconnect it? What about the contract?

      •  

        i was recontracting but they messed me around a bit so i asked for retention before i signed the contract. I've managed to walk 7-8 people through the process and they got between 20-25% off as well. works on pre-orders as well as i did it with the S10+ pre-order with bonus Galaxy Tab
