Belong Data - Why Not Just Upgrade for One Month

Wondering why people are buying belong data, when you can upgrade for one month and get 80Gb.

It seems that if I am on the $15/month plan, I can upgrade for only one month and get an extra 77GB (80 - 3) of data for an extra $30. That's 38 cents per Gb.

Am I missing somethng?

  • Would like to know as well. People now selling at 50c is too much

    But some people may be on the old 10 dollar plan and upgrade means they will lose out the $10 plan?
    I haven't done the maths, but just making a guess?
    Second guess, may be laziness to upgrade and then downgrade? whereas pay someone to get the data is easier. I have paid few times to buy the data myself and hence can relate to the laziness :)
    Btw, I bought at 30c and 35c :)

      I am on the $10 plan, I always ask my dog who is pretty good at churning through belong sims to send some data to me. All I have to do is give him some tasty treats!

    Wouldn't it be slightly cheaper if you just buy a new $25 sim, activate it and gift the data to yourself? The bonus is that if you refer yourself, you get $20 credit.

    • yes it is cheaper to do it yourself… like everything in life… why go out to eat when you can cook for cheaper yourself… =P

      • I would argue that this is kinda not quite the same. There is a chance that the seller on gumtree/fb marketplace/classifieds is dodgy, would you order food delivery off gumtree/fb marketplace/whirlpool/classifieds? And then there is the waiting for payment to go through, etc.

        Maybe I like things to be within my control. :) To each their own, I guess.

        • Yeh that's true. They can be dodgy but I guess

  • But if you run out middle month then you have to wait, the data topup rate is a lot higher.

  • Yes the reason is it's a new plan in the last few days.

    Prices have to be adjusted again. It was a nice short lived price rise for data trader.

  • beware according to whirlpool, if you are currently on $10 plan you can upgrade, and later downgrade no problem but not to the $10 anymore but the lowest is new $15 plan

  • You might need data right now, and weren't able to plan in advance to have more data in the month where you ended up needing more data.

  • yep looks like i need to lower my prices to 35c/gb now….. dammit =P

    although those on $10 plan might not wana move cuz you cant go back…
