Google Pixel 5 $747, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G $861 Bonus Galaxy Buds+ (RRP $299) @ Vodafone (Min. 24mth Plan)

80

Note: Even though the phone plans may be month-to-month, these deals require you to sign up for 24 or 36 month phone repayment periods (the promo page says 36-months, but selecting 24-months seems to offer the deal). I went into the Vodafone store in Morley and was told there was no option to buy outright with these discounts.

Looks like a good deal if you're happy to sign up for 2 years, especially on the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G with free Galaxy Buds+. However, many people have reported touch screen issues with the S20 FE 5G, so that will need to be considered also.

I've been hunting for a good deal on the Google Pixel 5, however I'm personally not happy signing up for 2 years, and will likely go for the similar Telstra deal here

Mod: Removed Dupe from the title - iPhone SE 64GB $499

  • Can't you pay out ETC after 1 month though? Wasn't that the way to get cheap Pixel 4 earlier in the year?

    • Unfortunately not. The discount is prorated over the repayments. If you cancel, you'll need to pay the remaining at the undiscounted rate.

      • For those who are lazy to head over to the T&Cs,

        Device Discount terms
        Device Discount is a discount off the device RRP and is only available to eligible new and upgrading customers who purchase a device with a device repayment period (12/24/36 months), with an eligible Consumer Postpaid Mobile Plan. Not applicable for customers purchasing a device outright. The Device Discount will apply for the length of your chosen device repayment period (12/24/36 months). If you cancel your Plan or your device repayment, your Device Discount will be forfeited, and you must pay out your device on your next bill at the undiscounted rate (i.e. 100% of remaining device repayments at full RRP x months remaining). Device Discount will not be forfeited if you rate plan change but will be forfeited if you change to an ineligible plan, such as a SIM Only plan. Device Discount may vary dependent on the device chosen and the chosen device repayment period (12/24/36 months) and applies as a monthly recurring credit against the device repayment. Device Discount is subject to change and not a permanent offer. You can only have one Device Discount per service at any one time. After your device repayment period has ended, your Device Discount will also end but monthly plan costs will remain.

  • Saw it in afternoon as well. I've been looking for a pixel 5 deal for a while. But this is not the one for me. JB hi-fi announced their deals and no mention of pixel 5. It's as if no one is bothered about the sales of pixel 5 (including Google)
    Hopefully Telstra would bring up a pro rated deal

    • The Telstra deal I linked is for outright, so you can leave the selected plan at any time and keep the phone and discount.

    • You missed the Singles Day sale didn't you? 11% off on Pixel 5 at JB Hi-fi and stack with discounted GC.

      • Yeah, unfortunately I wasn't looking then. I'm actually tempted to still jump on the Telstra Google Nest Hub Max offer, since I was thinking about buying one anyway.

        • If you are looking for Hub max, then the current deal is the best one for you. With the Telstra one is it confirmed it's gonna be an outright deal? I can't go for s20 FE as the size of the phone is too big for a single handed operation and carrying conveniently in pocket. And despite the widely reported screen gap issue in pixel 5 I still want to go for stock android as I've been using it for many years now and cant be bothered with samsung ui

          • @godspeed4476: @godspeed4476: Yeah, if the leaked Telstra flyer is legit (don't see why it wouldn't be), then it's for the outright price.

            • @swhitmore: It just says, "save upto $ 400 on outright price" , it may very well mean that their month to month locked plan (liked vodafone) are better than outright purchase. I guess we have to wait and see, the only downside is the hub max deal ends day after tomorrow, so if the new deal is not works out then it means potentially loosing out on that as well. I will head into Telstra store tomorrow morning and try to suss it out

  • The page says "Min. cost $747 when you stay connected with us for 36 months." for the Pixel 5, no matter if I select the 24 or 36 month option, so Im quite sure you can cancel in the 1 month and pay out the phone, so you might end up paying $747 + $plan cost for 1 month. Even the Critical Information Summary say "There are no early exit fees on this plan. However, if you choose to cancel, 100% of any remaining phone installments will be applied to your next bill". See here: file:///C:/Users/Home%20Laptop/Downloads/AU12268-AU12272%20_40-120_Vodafone%20Infinite_Lite_MtM_09.20.pdf

    To back that up, the T&C's say: "Reduced Monthly Device Price"
    The Reduced Monthly Device Price is available when you sign up to or upgrade to a Vodafone Infinite plan and add an MPP over 12, 24 or 36 months. The Reduced Monthly Device Price is not a permanent offer and is subject to continual change. The Reduced Monthly Device Price will continue to be charged for the length of your chosen MPP commitment period (i.e. if your MPP is 24 months, the price will be charged each month for 24 months). If you cancel your plan, the remaining repayments will be charged out at the Reduced Monthly Device Price rate times months remaining as a lump sum on your final bill. Total min cost is the Reduced Monthly Device Price over your chosen MPP term plus one of your month plan fees."

    • In the "Device Discount Terms"

      If you cancel your Plan or your device repayment, your Device Discount will be forfeited, and you must pay out your device on your next bill at the undiscounted rate (i.e. 100% of remaining device repayments at full RRP x months remaining). Device Discount will not be forfeited if you rate plan change but will be forfeited if you change to an ineligible plan, such as a SIM Only plan. Device Discount may vary dependent on the device chosen and the chosen device repayment period (12/24/36 months) and applies as a monthly recurring credit against the device repayment.

      What’s your laptop’s password so I can access the PDF on it? 👍🏻

  • Looks like this offer is cheapest way to get a Pixel 5 on a 24 month plan as it works out to $66.12 per month for 50GB of data.

    Are there any good reasons not to take up this offer if you didn't want to buy it outright? Will there be better offers closer to Christmas? I'm still on the Pixel 2XL deal from JB HiFi and I'm paying $50 a month.

    • $66.12 x 24 months is $1586.88 but it says minimum spend $1,023.50
      How does that work?

    • Cheapest is to go on a 36 month plan for $40 a month (handset is $20.75/month), totalling $60.75 monthly, otherwise buy for $750 from Telstra and purchase a year plan with Kogan.

  • Is S20 FE dual SIM or single sim?
