    Is this cheapest way to keep a number for a year?

    • +14 votes

      ALDI Mobile is cheaper if you don't need to make any calls or use data.

      • +15 votes

        Umm… not having a mobile at all is cheaper if you don't need to make calls, receive calls or use data.

        • +3 votes

          If you go overseas (less likely these days) you may not need your number while away, but want to have it when you return. This could have been a cheap way to park a number for a year.

          I didn't say you can't receive calls.

          Your comment makes no sense as the OP was asking about "the cheapest way to keep a number for a year".

          •  

            @bio: I didn't say you said that.

            Just sounded a bit silly when I read it.

            You've provided a great option, but perhaps actually stating the price in the reply would help everyone. I've had to search for ALDI mobile on Bing to actually see what you're talking about (spoiler: it's $5 and you can actually use that credit for calls and data!).

            •  

              @brawndo: Fair enough. I didn't remember if it was $5 or $10, so I just left the breadcrumbs for the OP to follow.

      •  

        What does Aldi mobile offer better than this please? Can never find the right one at Aldi, even after asking the staff. Thank you

        • +6 votes

          Buy a $5 SIM, and activate your number on it but don't recharge to anything. The $5 credit will have 365 day expiry.

      Amaysim PAYG sim if you just need a number to receive calls.

    •  

      Amaysim has the flexible plan to pay for only what you use. So $0 if you don't use it at all

        Price error. Should be Save 30, pay 120.

    • +1 vote

      I only paid $30 when checkout.

      •  

        Prepare for the cancellation?

        •  

          Anyone know if that happened with Catch Connect before?

  • +10 votes

    Seems like a price error… Should be save 30. TandC's state that you pay $120 to get the data

    •  

      Does this happen a lot with Catch?
      Twilight Imperium was at $44 the other day - it's generally a $200 game.

      •  

        Was this posted on ozbargain? I would have jumped on that! Missed it

        •  

          It was a price error. It was posted and discussed on Australian Board Game Community on Facebook, but there was a such a high chance of it being counterfeit or a mistake that I didn't think it appropriate to post.

          Do you ever use board game Oracle? That's where we initially found the price for it https://www.boardgameoracle.com/en-AU

  •  

    It's meant to be $30 discount?

  • +2 votes

    Wow! And I just bought the 60gb for $80

    •  

      The 60gb is now $31.. go figure??

      Guess they used to do $10 for 90 day deals. So probably not a price error, just a short time offer.

      P.S. Cashrewards for an extra 3.5%

      Yours arrive yet? Mine still hasn't

    Oh no, thats too bad for me.. Yesterday bought same for $89 … :(

    •  

      Same here :(

    •  

      I enquired about a cancellation of my order just now (it hasn't been shipped yet) and they emailed back saying it has been processed!

  •  

    Seems like a price error, bought some to see what happens.

  •  

    grab it before it's too late

  •  

    Got 1, seems to be price error.
    Finger cross

  •  

    That’s crazy! Bought one!

  •  

    How long before we need to activate it?

    •  

      also interested!

      • +2 votes

        Usually 30 days.
        I've still got 60 left on my current 90 day Kogan deal.. But for $30 for a year I'll lose a month

    •  

      It will probably be stated on the latter that accompanies the card.

  •  

    An awesome deal if it's not cancelled! Don't forget 3.5% cash back via Cash Rewards.

    Pointless in grabbing as it clearly says.
    All data allowance is applied upfront after $120 payment and activation. Ongoing recharges at $150.
    I suppose one could argue for the "Unlimited standard national talk and text" for $30 for the year :-)

      If I was one of those eternally 13 year olds who hate to have their enthusiasm squenched I'd neg you.

      I got one.

      •  

        haha! I got one as well. Am doing the Ozb thing of "Buy Now" and see what happens. I don;t need one as am on a Boost 365 already BUT could be handy for something :-)

        •  

          Boost renewal plan has been changed to higher price plan. Sadly face…

          •  

            @maxall: Yeap but am still on original renewal through to Sep 2021

            •  

              @Borg: My plan is about expire in April 21, even join boost long long time ago, the old plan is no longer renewable, have to paid the higher price plan if I want to use Telstra network. Not happy Jane.

    •  

      It's the same for the $31 60GB 365-day plan:

      All data allowance applied upfront after $89 payment and activation.

      says 150GB in big blue letters.. if this was they case they would get slapped with millions in ACCC fines for misleading customers.

      Every one has paid $150.. there just $120 discount so the T&Cs make no difference

      • +1 vote

        Yes, and it says $120 in the CIS.

        Price errors don't have to be honoured.

    $30 for a year is amazing if they honour it

      Click on Cart on top right hand and you should see item

    If I'm currently using amaysim which uses the optus network am I still considered as a 'new' customer? asking cos some companies like kogan only accept new customers from a different network provider (referring to their 90day large plans)

    bought one. let's hope they honour it. awesome Australia Day gift

  •  

    got one, Thanks

  •  

    Site down

  •  

    Thanks OP, bought one, hopefully they will honour it.

  •  

    I love a bargain, but this is almost certainly a price error. There is a 60GB option a dollar more for $31.

    The terms and conditions and the Critical Information Summary (CIS) state “All data allowance is applied upfront after $120 payment and activation.”

    Although the Critical Information Summary also states “it does not reflect any additional discounts, bonus data or promotions which may apply from time to time.”, so who knows!

      Generic T&Cs…

    •  

      I agree it must be an error.

      They were $120 and if you're a student you get $90. Why would they suddenly make a year $30. It would be so ridiculously under the competition.

      Sucks I recently bought a few of these.

    When do you have to use it by???

    Kogan 40/5 8Gb per $1

    Does Catch Connect still do international roaming to receive SMS while overseas? Can't really figure it out with its wording in the CIS.

    • +1 vote

      ll let u know in 3 years time when we might be able to travel overseas

    •  

      Nope

  •  

    The added cost of taking on a new customer to them should be negligible so perhaps they'll honour

  •  

    Anyone know if I can wait say half a year before activating this?
