Was picking up a mouse from the good guys and stumbled accross this offer that a local sales rep showed me.

I believe I have all the correct details and the link has the cis information. Contract is month to month and be cancel anytime.

Can be an existing customer, just has to be a new service. I'll upload the evidance of me with the plan details and the gift card. Offer expires 27/10/2019.

Max 1 per customer

This was a good thing for me to get as i was thinking of getting some new headphones, this definitley helps now :)

        Good luck finding open shops in Brisbane at this hour- it’s a country town up here

        •  

          Even during EOFY (sunday 30 june) shops were advertised to be open until 7pm, they were asked to close by 6pm.

    Is it just me, or does it say that its minimum $600 over 12 months on the pic?

    •  

      Yes it does say 12 months. had to double check with sales rep and he did it with month to month plan.

      •  

        so basically cant really cancel the plan in the 1st month or so?

        •  

          I would say you can. The cis i got was month to month.

      • +4 votes

        Is this something he did for you or is done for all people?

        I don't want to find I'm suddenly down $400.

        •  

          Sounds like some ret&rd sales assistant did it and prob get rapped over the knuckles over once the manager finds out a week later. Seems very opportunistic. Good luck if u get it tho

        •  

          He double checked to make sure it was month to month. On the contract it displayed month to month.

    • +6 votes

      This is just how carriers advertise plans for easy comparison. To someone looking for a plan, they can easily compare the 12 month total costs.

      This is definitely a month to month plan that can be cancelled the second you get your gift card

  •  

    Here we go again….Similar to the JB / Telstra deal that was pulled yesterday morning.

    Hope this one lasts longer.

      until 8:59am tomorrow

        See comment below. How many people are really getting the $200 gift voucher for signing this $50 month to month no contract and no hardware repayment only deal?

  • +2 votes

    I tried this last night they wouldn’t do it without a hardware repayment attached.

    •  

      Sounds like JB have already warned GG, but there is nothing in the T&Cs that mention the deal has to be tied with a hardware device.

  •  

    Cool so ~ $198 profit for those that choose to cancel on day 1

    •  

      Try it and let us know how you got on lol.

        According to the T&C

        Bonus will be issued once connection has be approved by Telstra. Connection confirmation
        may take up to 5 working days. The Good Guys will contact the customer once approval has
        been received and dispatch the bonus. Bonus will be received by the customer in 1-2 working
        days.

        https://thegoodguys.sirv.com/Content/2020FY/Brands/Telstra/w...

        So you can't cancel on day 1? May need to wait for a week (5 working days)

        •  

          Yes. In my experience good guys are very slow to port. Can take up to a week.

  •  

    sure we can cancel within 1 mth

    Copying my comment from when this deal was posted yesterday and changed to “unobtainable”. I signed up yesterday, got the gift card and cancelled the plan via live chat at 10pm WST. Paying $1.50ish total for the time it was active.

    COPIED COMMENT BELOW:
    I successfully signed up to this at 12pm WST. Spent 2 hours in the Good Guys store. Telstra apparently issued a correction At 8am EST that this requires an iPad but the store didn’t receive anything and still had advertising up for the original $50 offer with $200 gift card.

    After 3 calls to Telstra in the store they just ended up processing a $50 casual plan without the gift card and manually gave me a gift card at the store as the port was completed within 15 min.

    To everyone trying, you probably have to be lucky but if you say that they’re still advertising the offer you should get there eventually.

    As far as Telstra are concerned, I’m signed up to a casual $50 Mobile Broadband plan and they don’t know anything about the gift card.

    Will be cancelling the plan when I have some free time later.

    To the person saying they got this added as an ARO - your store didn’t process it properly and you got screwed (I used to work in Telstra retail so I know all about Siebel and plan setups and terminations)

    Edit: For what it’s worth, 3 different GG sales people were on my side and were pissed that the Telstra person kept stating there was updated communications that they hadn’t received. They completely agreed with my line of thinking regarding the deal still being advertised.

    • +6 votes

      It's still advertised on TGG website https://www.thegoodguys.com.au/telstra-mobile-and-broadband-... and the CIS clearly says you can BYO device, so if TGG or Telstra say otherwise they are lying, going by the documentation linked to the deal.

      •  

        Telstra have issued updated T&Cs to JB since they had a similar deal the other day and somehow this hasn’t flowed through to GG which is the reason the Telstra sales rep wouldn’t process it on the phone.

        • -1 vote

          Nothing has changed on the Telstra website https://www.telstra.com.au/internet/data-plans?

          • +2 votes

            @unity1: You’re not understanding what I’m saying. This isn’t a Telstra deal, it’s a Telstra dealer deal. It’s only available to their channel partners (JB and GG in this case).

            They initially sent the deal as you see it on the Good Guys site (no device, month to month) which I assume was an oversight. They issued updated communication to their partners about the device requirement resulting in JB pulling the deal. For whatever reason the original T and Cs are still listed on the GG website which is how I was able to justify wanting the deal still.

            The deal and the plan are different. The plan hasn’t changed as part of this process, but the additional aspect (the deal) which is the gift card has been altered at JB but not GG

            •  

              @NVofALL: Thanks for the explanation. It would be good to see a copy of these updated T&Cs.

      •  

        They have removed the plan from their website now. Not sure what time they took it down but it doesnt show the casual $50 plan anymore

  • +3 votes

    tried and when they ring telstra, they'll say its been updated to include an ipad purchase in the t's and c's.

    • +3 votes

      See my previous comment - ask the store to process a regular $50 casual mobile broadband plan without the GC and then ask them to process the gift card themselves as per their advertising (the bottom of the in store add says gift card issued at point of sale as well)

    Oh boy….another round?

    $150 this time but can we make it before the memo hits tomorrow?

    Or maybe we will win this time as it's the weekend.

    Lmao NVM just read the post. Memo fixed.

    Really super efficient.

    Well not a deal really, unless you going to buy something from GG as they giving you a gift card not cash.

    •  

      What kind of logic is that?

      •  

        It is sound: gift cards are not cash. You cannot argue with that :D

        • +1 vote

          logic of: not a deal because you are getting $200 of giftcard for $50 cash instead of getting $200 cash?

    Be warned.. Telstra's Pre Port Verification system is currently broken. This means many people cannot port in and there is currently a huge backlog of orders while their IT team investigates the issue. It's been broken for about 6 days now.

    •  

      Just get a new numb.

      •  

        No gift card for new numbers I think

        •  

          Flyer says sign up to a Telstra service. Nothing about porting.

      More like a couple of months.

      •  

        I thought they fixed that issue and this is a newer issue, or an issue on top of the previous issue. Whatever the case, quite frustrating as we are trying to port out of Optus in an area with zero Optus coverage. The number needs to stay the same because it is a primary number for business, so getting a new number isn't an option.

        •  

          To get this data sim deal would not most people be porting another data only sim and not their regular number that can make calls and txts.

          Also how many people would port their regular mobile phone number to a data sim? A new extra number for tablet/back up phone or modem would be more likely I think.

          • +1 vote

            @ozhunter68: Can you port a mobile service to a data service?

            • +1 vote

              @unity1: This seems to still be a bit of a grey area, the difference between a mobile phone sim or a data only sim ( before activation sims seem to physically the same with similar abilities, but telcos can enable/disable features as they please as long as their system is capable ).

              I am not an expert in this field, but through my own experience and reading many others on here I have seen and experienced the evolution and changes of how wireless phone/data sims work. Basically I have been a heavy user sim s**t for years.

              Up until a few years ago, if you need a sim for data only in tablet or modem you had to buy the correct sim and then activate it accordingly. Later 3G/4G tablets became capable of txt/calls, so some telcos included that feature with correct activation.

              Forward to now and most sims you can put in phones or modems/tablets and can use both ways, just not always for calls and txts unless using web based portal for/if included txts. Had Optus Prepaid sim issue recently and was Forced to go in store to fix, and staff were still unaware you can check your data sim balance using a phone through the My Optus App, as well as use your phone like that for data/hot spot with data only sim.

              To answer your question now, with most telco's I would say Yes, as long as it's not a company corporate account as it sounds like you need correct authority for that.

                @ozhunter68: I have a prepaid Vodafone SIM at home, just recently run out of credit but not expired. I'm just curious if people are still getting this deal. Have not had anyone confirm or deny it's still running as a stand alone plan.

                •  

                  @unity1: Personally I would not bother unless your happy to go in one or two stores this morning for a look anyway and if your in the mood "Roll the Dice" without too much expectation ( nothing to loose if you have that attitude ) lol.

                    @ozhunter68: I'm at work all day today, but happy to go in tomorrow if the deal is still on as advertised. I went into JB at 9am the other day and missed out. Wouldn't mind a win for a change.

      They should've just throw away the SMS verification to start the port in process.

      • +2 votes

        Why?
        So hackers can steal your phone number?

        •  

          Because that's the problem with lots of ppl here, ppl don't get the verification text and there's no easy option for JB telco or Telstra to resend the verification text.

          •  

            @Kupret: There should also be a backup option where you call into Telco with code and giving all correct security info id of course.

    Soooo….. anyone successfully got this promo today without buying a device and on a casual plan?

      Just completed now ^^ confirmed with Telstra no device . Gift card comes in a few days.

      Also had advertisement on the front doors

      •  

        So def no lock in contract?

      •  

        Do they do a credit check? I’m an existing Telstra customer on a contract, wonder if they’ll do another credit check on me..
        Did you port a number to Telstra or was it a new service.

      •  

        Did you port from another carrier because T&Cs state " customers must bring their mobile number to Telstra "

        •  

          New customers only… credit check yes

          •  

            @Calmerancer: Don't you mean new service?

            @Calmerancer:

              @rye: My local GG said existing Telstra customers we eligible too, but had to be a port in from another carrier. So imma give it a try

              @rye: New service only sorry

    •  

      Yes. At 10:30, the offer was just as described with a similar AD at the front. Gave me a partial store credit to use on the spot, the physical gift card will come after an email confirmation from Telstra confirming the connection.

  •  

    I got told i have to port in…..

  •  

    Wouldn't it be cheaper just to get the large Kogan yearly plan with 40gb per month for $315? That way it works out to be about $25 a month. The service probably isn't as good. But I've been on Kogan for 2 years now with very little issues.

      I don't think you understand the point of this deal. Sign up, cancel and keep the gift card.

    • +3 votes

      No one wants it for the service, it's for the gift card

  •  

    Question, do I have to wait the few days till I receive the gift card?
    Or can I cancel after sign up and still receive it?

    • +2 votes

      Usually the connections are done on the spot. If not, definitely wait till you receive the gift card before you cancel. This may cost you a few dollars more but you still come out in front.

      •  

        Thanks! I just saw on the t&pc's it will be 1-2 days after but saw people cancelling earlier.

    Thanks! Just signed up to this as a new customer. Casual plan. No device needed. Credit check required. $200 voucher given immediately.
