Bonus $200 G/C ($500 total) on $69 Telstra 12M Contract (Min Cost $828, New / Port in Users) @ JB Hi-Fi

1490

Bonus $200 JB Hi-Fi gift card on the Telstra $69 plan, that's already available with $300 of JB gift cards.

Brings it to a total of $500 gift card and net of approximately $27.33 a month.

Staff member told me that they weren't allowed to advertise the deal (looking around the store, this was true) because Telstra wanted them to sell more of the $99 plans. Also mentioned that it was available today only (28 June), but he may have just been trying to put the hard sell on me.

Edit:
Seems to be available in all stores. Updating to 30 June based on what people are saying below.

Mod: Some users have reported a $10/month port in credit after some effort/attempts on live chat.

    Does this plan support eSIM? Read that for new Telstra sign ups, they don't let you transfer from physical to eSIM.

    •  

      For those wondering, the guy at JB said you can choose physical or eSIM and they’ll set it up in store for you.

      I opted for physical sim as I’ve read that the transfer to another device is a bit difficult and I’m going to upgrade my iPhone in September.

    Can confirm the deal - just got it from JB Hi-Fi Altona HOME. If anyone is going to that store, ask for Michael!! Really friendly and helpful :)

      Same! Got the deal there as well and am trying to merge the two services again (so to keep my current number.) Last year I successfully did this with my wife's phone number 👍🏽

      •  

        You got it at the same store? You must have walked in right after I finished! Because the guy said I was the first, haha. Let me know how you go with merging the two services? That's my plan too. Michael was saying that if they give trouble about it, I may have to port out my number for a month.

  •  

    Finally, a decent deal. Ported out for a couple of months to Kogan and Optus while waiting for this.
    Hopefully the $10 p.m port-in bonus would be successful. Any recommended JB Hi-Fi store in the Melbourne CBD?

    Just signed up at JB Oxford St. $500 gift card.

    No $10 port in credit. Can do eSIM but I opted for physical sim.

    Will try live chat and see if I can get the $10 credit.

    Also you can check the balance on the gift card here: https://giftcards.jbhifi.com.au

      Wow…

    •  

      On live chat and it’s not looking promising.

      They’re taking forever to respond and their first response is “ your number already active in post paid with JB HI-FI & THE GOOD GUYS MOBILE BYO PLAN $69
      so may I know what is the $10 credit you are referring ?”

      •  

        Keep us updated bro thx

        •  

          Now this:
          “as It's new number bill not yet generated
          if you have subscribed for any offer you'll get credit in bill
          I request kindly wait till bill get generate,

          Apart from this is there anything else I can assist you with today?”

          Definitely not an Aussie rep so I’d try again tomorrow during business hours.

          • +4 votes

            @zzzman: So this agent came around after I said “ You don’t seem very knowledgable or helpful. I’ll try again some other time. Thanks.”

            Then they went “ Are you referring $10 discount for 12 months? or any particular offer you offered at the time of enrollment , kindly let me know I'll assist.”

            “ Thanks for all the information. I'm going to get this sorted for you. I need a little bit of time to do this but no need to worry as I'll be back after 30mins. If you need to step away for a few minutes, it’s not a problem. Just have your notifications turned on, you will get one as soon as I reply”

            Then came back 15 mins later and confirmed they’ve applied the credit.

            Good luck guys!

              @zzzman: Can confirm. Just got 10 dollar credit applied in one shot. Probably the best experience I have had with Telstra live chat as of yet. Took 20 mins in total approx lol.

              •  

                @Bambini88: Congrats mate. Was the rep more responsive and switched on than mine? My was super slow. Probably responding to 10 different customers at the same time.

                  @zzzman: yeah, I talked to 1 guy and he sorted it for me straight away :)

                    @Bambini88: were you able to keep your old number?

                    •  

                      @tliu41: Trying to merge, the rep said I’ll keep my old number. The merge has been submitted by form but hasn’t been actioned yet.

                •  

                  @zzzman: Same here. Mine is super slow. Didn't get a reply for 25 minutes, so asked them a question, they apologised for the wait, now its been another 15 minutes haha.

              •  

                @Bambini88: Did they give u any reference number? I am on chat with them but this agent trying to figure out what offer is that :p

    can some tell me $69 gets how many giga?

    •  

      80GB

      •  

        Correct. 60GB + 20GB bonus (for 1 year)

        •  

          Bonus data should be valid until recontract, so as long as the plan remains unchanged.

          •  

            @Staary: Oh really? That's amazing! Thanks for the info :)

  •  

    Perfect OP. Ported out to Voda 32 days ago. Was waiting for more than the $300.
    No issue at Parramatta. Only issue with Telstra trying to get this turned into a eSim.

  •  

    Does anyone know whether this plan with "No excess data charges" after data allowance used up?

    •  

      No excess data charge.
      Speed is merely reduced to minimum.

    is this SIM only?

      Yes or port in.

    Was on live chat for 2 hrs.

    The first rep didn’t know much and back and forth and slow reply i kinda gave up. But 30mins ago. A new rep came in. Added the first $10 port in credit to my acc. Then onto my wife account boom.

    All done. Both accounts with $10 port in per month. Love it.

    •  

      What did you mention to the rep? As in, did you say you were advised you’d get a $10 port in credit?

      • +2 votes

        See my other comments above.

        Some of the things I mentioned

        “Port in credit. I have friends who has signed up with this plan before and they received a port in credit for porting their number from another provider to Telstra.”

        “ You don’t seem very knowledgable or helpful. I’ll try again some other time. Thanks.”

    •  

      Is this live chat for telstra or the jbhifi live chat?

      •  

        Telstra only.

  •  

    Can someone please help me understand how you transfer a new number to your current month to month Telstra plan and keep your old number and not end up paying two phone bills? I can't get my head around it enough to take the risk

    •  

      Do you know the minimum required of days?>

        30

          thanks

    How can we chat with Telstra? I am not finding that option on their website. Note: I am not a Telstra customer.

    •  

      Through the My Telstra app. "Get Help" -> "Message Us"

      •  

        But I read that I must have a Telstra number or service to be able to create an ID. Am I correct?

        •  

          Correct. I believe they set one up for you when you sign up for a new number.

    Just an FYI, I had an extremely unhelpful "expert" first up. went through the process for about 2 hours. He spoke to the credit team and said no. He then offered to escalate to the complaints team. I disconnected the chat.

    I then tried again. Received a new expert (no name). Within 10 minutes:

    "I have confirmed that you have ported in your service under the JB Hi-Fi & The Good Guys Mobile BYO Plan $69. With this, you are eligible to get $10 monthly credit for 12 months. Let me add the credit on your account.

    To proceed, we're currently strengthening the security of accessing your account and will need to complete a quick authentication. I am sending a 6 digit code to your registered mobile number/email address, please provide it once you receive it because it will expire after 5 minutes. Thank you!"

  •  

    Is it possible to add on international minutes to this plan? Cheers

  •  

    I tried to get it and was waiting for an hour and a half and told it has gone to some team and it will take 3 to 5 business days to get a response. I tried again and got the response I have to wait 3 to 5 business days. I will try again tomorrow.

  •  

    Be careful of JB and good guys plans! These are lock in contracts and ETCs are non waivable

    •  

      Yes it's a 12 month contract… which is why you get the gift card.

  •  

    Year after year JB is inflating their deals by offloading their gift card vouchers and increasing the price.

    2 years ago it was $300 on $49pm plan for 12m
    Now it's $500 on $69pm and $700 on $99pm giving ppl value that they don't even need.

    This is really not a great deal unless if you need that much data. As previous poster mentioned, there are alternatives such as boost.

    • +1 vote

      But you can stack multiple gift cards and buy a brand new phone next year with 3 gift cards for $0 out of pocket? So it's literally free money?

    •  

      It would make sense if you're buying this for your work phone which is tax deductible … :)

      •  

        so it becomes salary sacrifice in a way :)

  •  

    iPhone 12 mini was best deal better than this since phone RRP is $1299 and Can easily sell for $900-$1000

    • +1 vote

      That was for a few days only after which the RRP of the mini dropped to $899. Good luck getting $800 for it now!

  •  

    Arg double posted

  •  

    I'm considering moving away from BOOST - do you get cheap BINGE / KAYO with this?

    •  

      In the past, yes. Telstra had deals whereby if you was a post paid member you could get Kayo/Binge etc for a discount for a certain period. In saying that, I was with Telstra last year and when I was with Boost after that - I still had access to some of these discounts.

    •  

      their TnC excludes porting in from BOOST..
      r u considering porting to another number before?

  •  

    Is it definitely still available? Not sure from website

    •  

      It's in stores only. Or call your local JB to confirm before heading into the store.

      A few of us got his deal yesterday already.

      •  

        I think it was on the website before but it's not now

        •  

          it wasnt on the website when i looked yesterday

  •  

    Signed up last night at JB in En-Ex 100, Perth. Jeremy was fantastic. Didn’t mind that I had an existing service with telstra and simply signed me up with a new service / number and gave me a GC on the spot following activation.

    Ported my number last night (pending) and applied a $10 credit for 6 months. Still waiting on the port to occur. Hopefully won’t take too long. Thanks OP.

    Great deal, anyone looking to offload their gift cards? Please see the classified here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/634787

    Hi Guys just went to JBHIFI Doncaster.

    Not honouring it anymore.

    Said its been changed to $300 or $500 off phone purchase.

    •  

      Same here went to Modbury JB hifi and was told at 9.00am this morning it was changed to $500 off handset instead of gift card. Called Adelaide store and they advised the same.

  • +1 vote

    Same in Sydney. $500 phone credit only. This sucks.

  •  

    Hi I've phoned a few stores (5-6 stores, VIC metro) and they're now only offering $300GC OR $500 credit towards the phone. Anyone have a contact in VIC metro that could still honour the deal?

    • +1 vote

      So I was going to go in yesterday to get the deal, but held off until today when I had time - as the guy mentioned it was available until tomorrow. I just called the local JB and they confirmed it's been changed. The guy said he can't honour it even though I was told yesterday it's available until 30th June - unfortunately it's a head office thing.

      I don't blame him at all - but f JB head office.

  •  

    Has anyone managed to succesfully do this deal over the phone? In Sydney atm and can't go into stores :(

    •  

      Only in-store AU wide

  •  

    Signed up at JBHiFi Northland in Victoria at 10:30am and they honoured the $500 JB Gift Card
    Took around 45 minutes to process it all

  •  

    Yep went to Bendigo store just now and told it's $500 off a handset

  • +2 votes

    JB told me it will probably be a $300 GC again tomorrow and then from July 1st a completely different offer/plan structure. I've been waiting for this for 2 months, so annoyed that I didn't go in yesterday.

    •  

      Anyone know what it might be? Likely worse?

    •  

      I bought the deal today mid-day in Werribee, it was still on and got $500GC

  •  

    Bad news… Just called JB and they said everything has changed now. For the $69 you get a voucher card of $300 that you can use only against a mobile device, nothing else. They also said only in-store. :(

    Can't believe they just changed this deal. Was about to head down and sign up just before the Brisbane lockdown :(

    Good Guys I think still have the $400 gift card offer which started yesterday and finishes tomorrow:

    Will need to confirm though.

  •  

    Just signed up the deal with $500 gift card

    •  

      Which store?

      •  

        Jb Bourke st Melbourne

  •  

    If you are looking to buy Samsung phone, S21 $99 deal is much better with $1100 giftcard applied to Samsung phone only.

    Just spoke on phone with Brunswick store. $500 credit towards phone only.
    Not a GC as per staff member
