    I miss the days when Optus offered an 80gb plan for $40 which included 5gb of international roaming data….

    • It's even worth to stay on after the plan reverts to $50 per month when that promotion is over.

    • +2

      Agreed - I'm still on a $41.25 / month for 80Gb offer, which just got extended to Nov 2021.

      • Optus has removed international talk & text and no international roaming on these new plans.

      • How did you get that extended?

        • No idea! I just got a text message from them the other day saying it would be maintained.

    • +8

      that plan came with unlimited spotify streaming and i think netflix streaming. bloody shattered that i didnt upgrade to that.

      • They ditched spotify and turned it into apple music even for existing customers.

        • +1

          I’ve been on the $40 for 80GB for almost two years now and it’s still free steaming for Spotify and google play music. No Apple Music in sight.

        • i've been on a 15gb plan for the past 3 or 4 yrs. still have free netflix and spotify streaming. only reasons im still on 15gb plans

    • +1

      Im still on the amaysim $30 pm / 100gb with international calls promo no contract. (using optus network)

    • I have this plan, and somehow got Optus to upgrade the data to 100gb/month. Got a 10gb sim plan to data share so my laptop has internet access without tether, comes to ~52 dollars/month for 110gb plus all the roaming inclusions etc. Incredible value!

    • I'm still currently holding that deal but with 4gb roaming

    • CID 16026095 for the win

    • I am on one of those plans. I had signed up for a 12 month $45 plan with 80gig data-free Netflix, Spotify stream, Optus sports, etc. I added a 2nd sim for $15 with 3 gigs of data. After student discounts, now i pay $52 monthly for 2 sims with 83 gigs of data.

      I don't think I will be able to get a better deal today with any other provider.

    • I’m still on this plan at $40 for 80GB and 4GB roaming data (not like we’re going to be travelling much any time soon).

      It’s still the best plan out there even with these discounts and flybuy offers.

      Their eSIM is also super easy to use and transfer between phones.

    • Mrs and I are both still on that one….great plan… at least it was when you could travel overseas.

  • Desperate Moments!!!

  • +10

    With JB HiFi/GoodGuys offering $500 gift card which you can sell pretty easily for $450 for their $59 per month 80gb plan for 12 months it's hard to see this as a good deal anymore. C'mon Optus Telstra got you beat on network coverage but you always had them beat on value. Let's see some real 'ozbargain' offers on 12 month plans

  • That's good timing was about to leave optus those rates are actually competitive

    • Offer for new service only. I'm thinking of porting out and back in as a workaround and the cheapest way I've found will cost $13 ($8 port out fee from Optus and $5 amaysim pre-paid sim pack).

      • Oh bugger guess I'll still have to leave them. Do they still have a retentions team maybe they'll come up with a deal like last time.

        • +1

          Port out and port in back again should do it

          • @Smokey010: Yeah I am speaking to an 'agent' at the moment and he's not giving me anything as an existing customer. I am throwing out all the buzz words about leaving and he's throwing them straight back

      • Ported to belong, can't seem to port back in :(

  • +3
    • 20GB Data, 25% Off Price $26.25 (Old Price $35.00), with 1,000 Flybuys Points

    1000 FBs = $5 so total cost over 12 months = $310 and 240GB

    Probably rather spend somewhere between $245, $250 or $270 for 300GB with Boost and access the full Telstra network…$300 full price…

  • +1

    I need eSim and Optus Sports, so signed up this deal

  • +3

    I was on this plan with Optus for 2 years and recently switched to Telstra on $44/80gig per month. Network coverage and speeds are amazing! Never going back to Optus.

    • +3

      I'm very similar I switched to Telstra on $59 plan but I got a $500 JB HiFi gift card and sold it in classifieds here for $460 so I've now got 12 months Telstra 5g 80gb (technically unlimited because once days is used you are speed limited to 1.5mbps) $59*12=$708 - $460 is $248 so tiny bit over $20 per month. If you don't need international calls I think it's a great option. It pops up pretty regularly.
      BTW for me Telstra coverage indoors is way better in inner west Melbourne and very similar to Optus outdoors but I don't have a 5g device
      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/585774
      This was the last time but seems to pop up every couple weeks

  • Why bother I get 50gb for $30 with Vodafone month to month

    • +2

      i wouldn't go anywhere near vodafone coverage even if you paid me tbh, just the worst!

  • man I Remember their system stuffed up and gave me $20 dollar credit instead of 20% off for 2 years 😀😅

    • +1

      But you were on the $100/month plan! 🤣

      • nah i was on 45

  • Hey Op!
    Can you apply the 10% student discount as well?

    • Offer not available with other discount offers.

      I'd say most likely not.

  • Im on a $35 BYO plan for 30GB of data each month. The big thing for me is Spotify doesn't count towards my data usage I feel for this reason alone I shouldn't jump plans :S Optus doesnt seem to offer this anymore?

    • Bro Spotify uses like no data. Almost zero if you download your most listened songs. I would not stay on your plan for solely this reason.

      • +1

        I'm not on Spotify premium so don't download; on my 'data breakdown' Spotify uses always >10% of my data allowance, so that's 3gb at a minimum and I'm not even going to work at the moment :S

    • I've been on this plan as well for the past 3 years or more. As much as I'd like to lower my monthly spend, there haven't been any other offerings as good as this (with any provider) to justify a change, especially with the free Spotify that I rely on. Looks like that won't be changing any time soon, either.

  • Do these plans still have free Optus Sport as well as Free Music streaming?

    • Hi @SnoopX - The Flybuys plans include a free Optus Sport subscription but not Free music streaming.

  • How this can be a good deal? When over data limits will charge $10/GB, maybe only suitable for someone using small data/month. Read the fine print Carefully before join it.

  • Vodafone $48.75 p/m for 200gb data and unlimited zone 1 international calls as an existing customer bundled with NBN plans. Call them to see if you are eligible.

    • Is this vodaphone website deal or a call up deal?

      • You need to call up and see if you are eligible. I would never have known that plan even existed if I did not call them. Give them a call you might be surprised xD

  • Surprised at the lack of international minutes anymore.

    • Just use Whatsapp for international (data)

      • No good for house phones in the UK sadly.

        • +2

          agh yes, some older gen wont have a mobile. Fair point.

  • +1

    Don't be confused, this is Flybuys optus plan, it's totally different with Optus normal plan, optus normal plan still has unlimited international call and roaming data, and you can even build your plan.
    https://www.optus.com.au/mobile/plans/shop

  • telstra $500 gc $59 still feels cheaper if you can use the gc.

  • Does anyone know which plan to go on to get Optus Sport for free?.

    • It looks like all the Flybuys/Optus mobile plans include a free Optus Sport subscription

  • Thinking of switching to Optus. Can I get sim only and data plan for 25% off and flybuys points?

    • Yes you can but only if you place your order on the Flybuys/Optus portal

  • best iphone 12 pro max plan ?

  • Are you able to include google phones?

  • Not sure if the plan still there but they had a 65 dollar plan for 12 month with 500gb data

  • +1

    Only iPhones and Samsung phone can be paired with these plans. Samsung A51 is $7.50pm on a 24M plan.

    • Why is that? Thinking of getting this for a Pixel

  • Roaming has been taken off…

  • I think going with the Aldi $25 month to month plan which includes international calls and data rollover is a better deal, unless you really need Optus Sports over international calls:

    https://www.aldimobile.com.au/products/25-mobile-plan

    • "We use parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G network to deliver ALDImobile coverage to over 23 million Australians." That doesn't sound great. I think I remember my mum being on Aldi and she had terrible service.

  • I asked for the 80gb plan for $40 last year and they agreed. This year when it ended I asked for it again and they gave it to me again. No bonus fly buys though.

    • How? They just cut me over from a $36 30GB month black to $45 30GB and I've been looking to switch up.

      • Send them a message on Facebook and say you know if other customers who get 80gb for $40 a month and you want that too.

        • Did you message Optus on Facebook?

      • Yeah! They did this to me recently too kind of ticked me off as no notification / update either just here's a bill for more $$$ you figure out why.

  • Optus has not been competitive for a long time. Ironically they also become sort of the fastest network at the moment, at least that is the case in Sydney CBD where Telstra is just not happening. I have a nighthawk, at peak time I get about 20 down 5 up max with the Telstra sim, swap my Optus sim I am constantly hitting hitting 50 down and 20 up. its a shame that out that Optus sim back into my P30 and you are seeing at least a 30% drop in performance.

    In terms of customer services Telstra still edge out a bit but not as good as before. Optus is still garbage with customer services unless you are on the Optus One plan.

    Vodafone is a dark horse here. with its new plan it is very good value especially the $55 one with user reporting the 10mps sharp is still very useable.

    As for this deal, you are better off getting the Optus One deal and add what ever accounts needed in the pool. You can then cancel your NBN. That way you actually saving real money and not tide down to a contract with some sting flybuy point offer.

  • Wasn't eligible for this since I'm a current customer, but did try to haggle a little with Optus' Retention Team.

    Got the $149 Family Plan (250GB shared amongst four SIMs) discounted by 20%, taking it to around $120 per month only.

  • considering this deal.. currently on Telstra $65 (80GB) sim only plan and contract ended 2 months ago.. i see no deals for existing customers w/ Telstra so this seems like a good deal to jump on.

    How is the Optus network nowadays in terms of coverage and performance? (I'm in Melbourne metro). I haven't been on the Optus network for about 7 years now.

    Also how does international roaming work? I think both Vodafone and Telstra have a daily cost for daily roaming.

    • If you are already spending $65 a month, why not just get the Optus One plan. 500G data. Get a data sim for $15 (possibly $12 according to some OZBs) and put the data sim in an old phone to use as a router at home. All up $80 and you can kiss your NBN goodbye!!

      As for signal, if your are in metro it seems Optus is doing very well now. I can say that is sure the case in Sydney in Sydney. From what is reported no WP, the same for Melbourne. The best part of the Optus One (and the data pan) is month by month. Doesn't work for you? Leave and jump one one of those JB HiFI deals.

      The Flybuys plans this round is really garbage, small amount of points and contract binding. Dont fall for it.

      • using a phone as a WIFI router is not very efficient.. streaming data to a smart tv, 3 laptops, 2 ipads and 3 mobile phones, that puts HUGE strain on the mobile itself. Mobile phones were not meant to be used as an access point of that capacity.

        • I have laptops, tablets, switch….. no less than 5 devices connected at one time and has been working for me for years.

          You can always buys a third party or second hand modem to house the data sim.

    • For data roaming this plan has 10 gigs a month but you pay for calls and text.

      • thanks. when I rome internationally I usually use it for data anyways.

  • Is there 5G on these plans?

    • Yes.

      • Just ported over 2 numbers over. We’ll see how long it takes :)

        • How did port go?
          Also can you add an international call pack to these plans?

          • +1

            @Balluji: Took a few days but it got done. You can add on the pack via the app.

  • Been trying to get this deal. Was with Optus but have transferred to Belong on the 19th of last month. Still getting error message saying I can’t upgrade an existing service. Already tried talking to online chat which was no help; they thought I didn’t know how to fill the form and was instructing me on how to do so… 😐 after that they just gave me the sales team phone number. I did call them and they said sorry only online chat can help me. 😒

    • 19th of December? That's tough, I ported out once and was able to port back in a week later.

      • what??? no fair! man this sucks.

      • who did you port out to?

        • Belong, just like you.

          • @ballistykx: ahh man this sucks. Good for you though but damn so frustrating….

      Hi
      You at 11:58, Jan 23:
      I'm trying to connect to the Flybuy 25% off per month offer but I am unable to port my number across. The number was originally Optus but I have ported to Belong Services over a month ago.
      You at 11:58, Jan 23:
      I am getting the following error:
      You at 11:58, Jan 23:
      We are unable to transfer your number xxxxxx.

      This offer is not available for existing mobile number upgrades.

      You can either:

      Request a new number for additional service
      Use a number with a different service provider
      You at 11:59, Jan 23:
      It appears Optus is still retaining my number somewhere in the system, disallowing me to port back in as a new service
      Samuel at 11:59, Jan 23:

      Hi Delos!
      You at 11:59, Jan 23:
      Is there a way to deregister my number or remove/unlock my number so that I can port back into Optus?
      You at 12:01, Jan 23:
      Account Number: xxxxx
      Samuel at 12:01, Jan 23:

      Just to confirm that you're looking to reestablish the service ?
      You at 12:01, Jan 23:
      No, I want to port back in as a new service
      Samuel at 12:02, Jan 23:

      May I know the reason for port out ?
      You at 12:03, Jan 23:
      It was too expensive at the time
      You at 12:04, Jan 23:
      I have since discovered this offer and I would like to port back into Optus
      You at 12:05, Jan 23:
      I think the issue is that somewhere in the system, it's still retaining my number so I am unable to port back in as a new service…
      You at 12:06, Jan 23:
      I consulted a forum, someone was able to do this a week after they ported out, yet I've ported out a little more than a month ago and I am unable to… :(
      Samuel at 12:07, Jan 23:

      We can reestablish the services and we are unable to port in the service number since you were Optus customer.
      You at 12:08, Jan 23:
      I don't want to reestablish my service, I want to port back in as a new service
      Samuel at 12:11, Jan 23:

      I'm sorry to inform you that the service number xxxx unable to port in due to the service number was active with Optus.

      Port process will take place with different provider .
      You at 12:12, Jan 23:
      Yes it is with a different provider, I am with Belong mobile. I am trying to port back into Optus with that number as a new service.
      You at 12:12, Jan 23:
      Typically, I would be able to do this as a new service.
      You at 12:13, Jan 23:
      However, because of something in the service, the number is still registered as Optus
      Samuel at 12:15, Jan 23:

      Just to inform you that once the service active we can reestablish the service with the same number and we are not able to port in due to service was active with Optus.

      You can avail new service number with Optus.
      You at 12:18, Jan 23:
      I don't want to reestablish the service
      You at 12:18, Jan 23:
      I want a new service with that number
      You at 12:20, Jan 23:
      I don't want the pre-existing service to be active and reestablish. I want to be able to use that number to port back into Optus as a new service

      Ahhhh so frustrating, he transferred me to sales after that….
