$10 Monthly Credit on All Data Plans For 12 Months = 5GB for $5 Per Month (BYO) with No Extra Data Charges @ Telstra

3250

Telstra's Extra Small data plan is normally $15/month, but connections during '7 Day Frenzy' get $10/month off for the first 12 months.

No lock-in contract, so you can cancel any time and DONT FORGET $45 CASHREWARDS which will equate to $15 for 12 MONTHS , this means $1.25 per month for 5GB data- THIS IS CRAZY!

MOD: Received email from affiliate channel representing Telstra stating that Telstra are currently having tracking issue, and sales through cashback sites such as Cashrewards might not track properly.

Buy it, use it, bank it, boast it, harder better faster stronger!

No excess data charges. When you exceed your allowance, you can continue to access data, but your speed will be capped at 1.5Mbps.

This is a data SIM, so you can use it in devices like tablet, mobile dongles etc. You might be able to use it in a phone, but you can't make calls, it's not made for normal SMS use (charged at PAYG rates).

New customers only. If you want a higher plan instead, $10 discount currently applies those also.

Critical information summary (but does not list the $10/month discount)

Mod: Thanks to Giles for the description, copy pasted from them (who posted the duplicate deal).

    New customers only

    What if I’m out of contract? Can I just cancel and reconnect….

      I believe so, chat or call them to know more but I am sure that if you cancel your current service for a day or so then reconnect than you will be issued a new data number which should be considered as new service.

      Actually new service. Existing customers can apply for this as a new service with the benefits.

    Let’s say that I pick this plan, can I switch it after a month to the 25$, then maybe back again to the 15$ keeping the 10$ bonus for an year or, when I change the plan I lose the bonus?

    Its actually not new customers only. I just signed up using my existing telstra account. Discount applied fine.

    There is no contract for this. I don't know how it will work for the cashback. I'm pretty sure it doesn't work. It will require 100 days, do you just keep connected for 100 days?

    Seems weird but maybe that's why it is $45 because it's the $15 per month plan for at least 3 months. (cheapest plan is $15/month)

    Does anyone know the background behind the cashback offer? So can you technically make money on this? lol?

    The mobile base station is just on the roof of the building next to my apartment so I get excellent reception even in the bathroom. Under these circumstances the shaped speed has been very useable for light web browsing/light youtube (up to 720p 30fps) and overnight downloading (Indian youtube premium FTW) so this is an excellent deal for me and will be my primary internet source once the sim gets here. (I used this for a few months in the past before cancelling)

      Lucky. At home, my 3G connection is often faster than the 4G connection (I have to force my phone to use 3G instead of 4G)

    Wow cheap as chips. You can use in a dual phone $5 on this plus $5 on dodo and have a $10 with unlimited (capped) data win win

  •  

    I’m an existing customer which I was in friends and family plan which now ended. The $10 credit shows up for me if i choose the $50 or $60 plans. What do you guys think?

    •  

      if it shows up it should be safe. I think as long as you are adding a service (not just upgrading an existing service) you should be able to avail of the discount

  •  

    I have 2 of these$15 data Sims already can I contact them to get both discounted. or do I need to cancel and reconnect as a new customer to get the$5 deal

    •  

      why do you need 2?

      • +3 votes

        Probably dual WAN. I'm thinking about this too. $10 per month for 2 sims and get unlimited instead of $68 for 500gb from Optus. If test goes well, I would go through this route.

          How to do dual Wan with 4g mobile? One go through with USB port in router which is I'm doing now.

          • +4 votes

            @freeman: You need 2 4G modem to put 2 sims in. I used Huawei B315, which is cheap on gumtree. These 2 modems connect with router Asus RT-AC68U, this one can be setup to be dual WAN. All of the device clients connect to this router, it has QoS and traffic monitor so you know which device uses data alot and …. limit it :). Most of the time is your kids haha.

            •  

              @haisergeant: That's great idea, but 4g modem is too expensive.

            •  

              @haisergeant: "These 2 modems connect with router Asus RT-AC68U"

              • How do they connect to the router? Not usb? if so then one is usb2 and one usb 3
              • Will the telstra ZTE broadband modem send internet through the USB port?

              Thanks

              •  

                @Oteta: The router has 1 WAN port, however, when you look up in the console, there is a part you can configure dual WAN by:
                - WAN port + USB port, this way you will need a 4g USB dongle.
                - WAN port + LAN port, convert 1 of 4 LAN port to be the second WAN port. This way you need 2 4G modem, like Huawei B315, or B525, etc

                Yes, it can send and receive data through USB port.

        •  

          If you're using 2 modems does this mean your router can get 2 x 1.5Mbps (3Mbps) connections when the data runs out?

          •  

            @ballistykx: Yes. I’m looking for a solution to aggregate dual WAN. There are some firmwares supporting this. Merlin, OpenWRT. But need some tutorial.

          Great idea. I'm going to do the same. I'm currently using the $68 for 500gb service with Optus, will cancel once I get the telstra SIM and use it in the b818 I will have after cancelling.

    Thanks OP! Going to cancel the wife’s and open a new one for myself.

    These $15 data sim are great when shaped at 1.5Mps. We usually use about 120G each month. Now even better at $5.

    Darn didn't read the comments and forgot about Cashrewards. Oh well, still a great deal.

  •  

    has anyone tried downgrading from existing data services and still get the discount?

  •  

    Will $10 discount work on port in 12 month JB hifi telstra plans also?

  •  

    This deal is great for those who bought the iPad Air 3 + Cellular at Optus. Anyways what is the sim for the iPad?

  •  

    Are you able to purchase multiple times and receive multiple cashbacks?

    Edit: Does this also stack with the $2 OzBargin exclusive deal for today?

  •  

    thanks just signed up for the 5 gig a month for $5 a month after $10 discount. I will cancel my current 5 gig for $15 tomorrow.

    Anyone find the extra small plan?

    Signed Up, but please note:

    • $10 Monthly Credit - 12 Months
    Get a $10 monthly credit on your bill for months 1-12 added to a new month-to-month plan or with selected phones. Credit applies when you stay connected for 12 months

      Credit applies when you stay connected for 12 months

      they clawback credit if not connected for 12 months ?

      • +2 votes

        I don't think so, but that is a bit confusing. During the sign-up process it says "Min cost $5 when you stay connected on the Data Plan Extra Small plan for 1 month. Price may change if the month-to-month plan price changes." So if you only get to keep the credit after 12 months, the minimum cost can't be $5. Also during the sign-up process it makes it clear that you get $10 off with each monthly bill (it's not just $120 off after 12 months).
