    Works out to $488 sim & a $700 store credit your forced to buy something or sell it for $650, wait for a better deal with imo

      It’s beneficial for those who can tax deduct the full $99/month as a business expense (albeit marginal impact on Tax return).

      Whilst it seems like there are better deals like the $69/month + $10/month port in credit + $500 GC (when that’s run)… everyone’s situation is different!

        That’s fine but there's been better offers in the past $800/$900 gc

        Sounds dodgy. When receiving the $700, tax should be paid on it.

          Why so the gov can spend it on useless shit and send the money to their donor mates?? Nah I'd rather keep it.

      The 700 will have a 99 year expiry… Surely you will have spent a total of 700 between today and the day you die lol… But I agree, 69/m with 10 port-in credit and 500gc is a better deal

      •  

        And cash has no expiry, and does not get depreciated over someone's life.

        Gift cards are cash like…

        I see this as outright dodge, similar to tradies claiming depreciation on their ute, using the uts to do school drop off and weekend family run.

        •  

          you could always sign up to this deal and reject the $700 GC if it makes you feel better?

          •  

            @Bargains of Oz: No, it wont make me feel better. I am happy with a $300 annual boost prepaid.

            Merely pointing out facts.

              @keyboardwarrior: $208 over 12m on Telstra thanks to the $59 JB deal of which I claimed 5 of 7 days as I'd been WFH for the past year.

              I don't fully understand the point you were trying to make though. I agree a GC that has no expiry is relative to Cash but that's the point… it's cheaper for JB to offer a GC than cash rebate as they make money off your next purchase.

              Also with your other comment about tax, you pay tax over the counter with your next purchase.

              •  

                @Bargains of Oz: No. You pay GST on the next item bought over the counter.

                The loophole is the gift card, which inflates the actual expense incurred.

                Let say a person uses 50% of a $100/month (12 months contract) plan, claims it on deduction. Which comes with a $500 cash/gift voucher for the 12 months contract. Tax should be paid on $500/12*50% portion of the cash/gift card, or any deduction amount should be cost of the business/work portion, less rebate/cashback.

                •  

                  @keyboardwarrior: i understand the loophole of the GC…everybody understands the GC loophole and every man and his dog understands its more cost-effective for JB to offer a GC than a cash rebate (next sale will include cost + markup)…as you have echo'd but reworded my previous comment.

                  Your comment would make more sense if the GC was offered by Telstra, but technically and contractually speaking, it is a separate transaction even though it's not. Contractually speaking the $10/m port-in discount is offered by Telstra so your monthly bill reflects as such. You must be a helluva fun person at family gatherings and parties lol.

                  •  

                    @Bargains of Oz: Of course, not everyone is a clown. It genuinely surprises me on what people perceived to be right and openly claim to be proud of it.

                    Every person echoes a wrong doesnt make it a right.

                    No idea what got you thinking that I have an issue with the $10/m credit as it will be reflected on the bill and it will not be an amount paid by the user. Anyone claim the $99 whilst $10 discount reflected on the bill is simple illiterate.

  •  

    Anyone know if there's anything extra for the $69 plan, other than the advertised $300 Gift card that is? was looking to sign up 2 new contracts tomorrow.

      Wait until they offer $500 gift card and a $10 per month month discount on the $69 plans. They've been popping up on and off for a couple years now and has been 80gb data the last year, hoping they'll increase it slightly before November when I'll be looking to re-contract. (after moving away for a month so I qualify)
      Both JB & The Good Guys offer these deals pretty regularly.

      •  

        This is what I was hoping for, they had it end of last month, but Perth was in Lockdown and store wasn't open.

        •  

          You can buy the JB plans over the phone just means you have to wait a little longer to get your gift card. Usually about a week after you activate your plan and pay that first bill (it usually arrives a few days after activation as you pay your plan in advance)
          13 52 44 is the phone number btw.
          I really can't fault the $59 80gb plan I usually use up my data allocation with about 1-3 days left and the speed limited data is still plenty for watching video just means you can't be updating/downloading apps at the same time as watching videos ECT so for a few days it's fine.
          I just hope data allocation increases a bit 100-120gb would be ideal and that they start offering a decent international calls pack or better still a decent free inclusion (I think I'm dreaming on that one though haha)

    Work already pays for 80% of my phone bill. This is like free money

  •  

    Essential service 😏

  •  

    Worth noting that these are jbhifi plans. They are lacking some form of international call credit that comes with Telstra plans, if that is important to anyone.
    It wasn't for me, I signed up when it was $800 and bummed I missed the $900 offer….

  •  

    if you plan to claim tax deduction, better to go with Good Guys deal for FREE iPhone 12 mini

  •  

    Well this sucks for us Sydney Siders, does anyone know if JB are offering these plans over the phone some how?

    •  

      They did it on the phone during melb lock downs and iirc just sent digital gift card.

      •  

        Me as well, JB you can do over the phone but TGG you can't for some reason.

  •  

    My phone plan has ended and I need a new one with international calls. Can anyone recommend anything?

    •  

      I looked myself and there's not really anything that compares to this using the Telstra network at least. Optus has had some deals pop up but it depends on the country/s you want to call and if you need a device as they don't give vouchers you can sell or use for something else like these JB/TGG plans. You can't even add an international pack on this plan for some reason (at least you couldn't when I asked at the end of last year) so it's expensive using this plan.

      •  

        I have Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. If you are living in a major city, please stay away from Optus for the love of god. The data caps are good with apps and stuff but the actual internet and network is hot garbage.

        Vodafone is much better and Telstra is the best. Only get Optus if they are inside your home holding a gun to your doggos head.

        If you do decide to go Optus, get a plan with an MVNO like Amaysim or someone. Not directly with Optus. Their 5G isnt too good as well. Huge jitters and lag spikes.

      Aldi mobile

        That $5 long life sim is a hidden gem. And its on Telstra network

  •  

    Anyone know how a Sydney sider can get thus whilst in lockdown?

  •  

    Not a bad deal. But I reckon a better deal may come soon. So I think I will wait a while

    Since that they dont have it advertise will they know if i was just to rock up and say there is this 700$ credit deal going on?

    •  

      Depends on the store.
      If they’re offering it, sure.

    •  

      Walk in and ask them about their current deals. It’s on their portal and they shouldn’t hesitate to offer

    •  

      Yup still a good deal considering its using 5G TELSTRA, the $700 GIFT CARD is just a Bonus.

      Confirmed and rang the store going to go this afternoon to get one

    Switching from my Aldi plan, I'd be $188 worse off over the 12 months even with the gift card. Pass

    •  

      Do you get 5G with the Aldi plan?

  •  

    Can Telstra give you a $10 port-in discount with this?

  •  

    I reckon I would make the switch for a $1000 GC.
    Currently with Optus getting 35% off 2 sim only plans.

      Where do you live roughly? I was on Optus for as long as I had a mobile. I moved to Telstra over the past 12months due to all the Telstra fandom (and Optus trashing) and tbh the GC was a huge draw but in reality Optus was miles better for me. I'll be moving back when this plan is over. Probably move back to Telstra if another $59 500GC comes up but I'm in no rush.

      As reference, I thought it was my sim so I had it replaced 3 times over 7 months. Since also upgraded my phone From S10+ to S21 Ultra and saw no gains.

        I’m in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
        The way I see it is if you don’t travel out of town much, there’s no real benefit of being with Telstra.
        I have compared speed and signal with my family members phones and the difference is negligible.
        Personally can’t justify the high price of Telstra plans.
