Salesperson at my local JB showed me this today, I believe I have all the correct details

Can be an existing customer, just has to be a new service

Max 1 per customer

Update 24 Oct 9:40am: Judging by this comment, the deal was changed around 8am this morning to require the purchase of a device. Deal expiry set to 8am.

    So $225 profit if you decide to cancel after 1st month?

    • -1 vote

      Potentially more. In my experience Telstra prorated the first month so if you cancel early you'll only pay for the days active.

      I will try this tomorrow and cancel the plan as soon as I have the gift card.
      Shame it's only 1 per customer. I wonder if I store hop whether they would know?

        Don't be so greedy.

        Yes they will know. You have to ID yourself for each plan.

        Gift card not available after 3 months.

    •  

      Sorry I'm not aware of this. I went to a local JB Hifi store today and heard people getting much gift cards for free. But can you easily do this?

    Going by comments the deal is correct no lock in, so sign up to this deal then use the gift card to pay the $199 fee for the google pixel 4 deal

    •  

      but if you sign for this deal , you won't be a 'new' customer anymore , therefore not being eligible for the pixel deal

      •  

        this is mobile broadband sim, so you would think porting in your phone number for pixel plan is different, guess ask before

        •  

          Oh you're right. That's what I'll do tomorrow. Perfect. Basically free phone

  • +3 votes

    No need to port, right? New number is okay? Then I'm in…

    Almost sounds too good to be true with no lock in…

    The preorder bonus for Google pixel ends today, it would be an amazing offer to combine this with that, oh well

  •  

    Surely cant just be free money?

    I signed up today, got my gift card and cancelled an hour later. Telstra didn't mention any minimum charge

    •  

      Cancelled via JB or Telstra? Is that within the cooldown period?

      So you signed up on the 100gb data sim plan?

      •  

        75gb data sim

        •  

          What is this 75gb data sim? Is it a Jb Hifi only plan?

        •  

          So you got a different plan than the one advertised here? What's the cost of the 75GB plan?

          Do you also have the CIS which shows cancellation fees, etc

          • +1 vote

            @unity1: Sorry it is 75p/m for 100gb. I got confused

    • +6 votes

      Did you end up paying the 75 still?

      •  

        No

        •  

          isn't this prepaid so you have to pay upfront? or did Telstra refund/credit the money back because you cancelled early?

          •  

            @skido: I didn't have to pay up front. I just posted another pic in this thread in regards to cancellation fee. Check it out

  •  

    This can't be true?

    •  

      The contract does not have a lock in period or ETC.

    Some days I wonder if staring at ozbargain at night is worth it. I missed out on the drone at Bunnings but.

    • +1 vote

      the drone was early morning mate :D

      But it is true, most deals of the year come after mid-night. I still remembered last year when Virgin had price error for Sydney-Seoul on Singapore airline, I booked the ticket at 5AM.

      •  

        How much was it?

        •  

          It was about 400 return. I will always remember this late night deal that I missed

    can be confirmed as i stacked up this data plan deal with the mobile plan, so in total $800 value of jb gift card

        Does disconnection impact credit score?

          No unless you dont pay them whatever amount owing

      •  

        Any suggestions on minimizing impact on credit file? Other than not signing up?

        •  

          Pay anything you owe. There's no impact to your credit otherwise.

    Guess I'll be buying a new phone tomorrow 😇

  •  

    Joined today on the 65gb plan to use as home broadband in my 4g router. The extra data here is very tempting.

    Wondering if I could jump on live chat and try to migrate to this plan despite getting the larger $500 gift card? I'll give it a crack tomorrow I guess!

    Also wondering if this has peace of mind data… that would be a massive bonus!

    • +12 votes

      JB Hi-fi found the new way of marketing, ripping off Telstra discreetly as JB Hifi will get paid for each contract, Telstra managers get paid good Xmas bonuses for the increase of contracts caused by this "glitch".

  •  

    I gotta try this one,I wonder what 1 day of plan will cost me? Do O need to pay the first $75 up front?

  •  

    Back to JB tomorrow for another gift card it seems to compliment today’s $500 GC from the $65 plan port-in.

    •  

      Lol, they probably rolled their eyes, here we go again!

    Any one know if they do credit enquries on these non-lock-in deals? I know for fact they do credit enquries for 12/24 month contracts.

    • -2 votes

      Yes

      •  

        Why would they need to do a credit check? Unless you are paying the $75 at the end of the first period (ie: is this postpaid or prepaid?)

        Perhaps if they were charging for excess data or roaming that might be a reason for a credit check?

        •  

          I think the question should be is $300 GC worth getting a credit check?

          • +2 votes

            @FatTofu: It’s what’s called a “soft” enquiry. They see your score and such but they don’t leave a new enquiry in your file. So you’re not losing anything.
