Telstra Day: iPhone 12 Mini 64GB $699 (Save $500) + Plan, iPad Air 4 64GB Cellular $899 (Save $200) + Plan & More @ Telstra

2322

Looks like Telstra are having a one day sale on Thursday the 5th August and for those still looking for an iPhone 12 mini this looks like the cheapest deal so far (even though new iPhones will be announced in a month or so this still seems like a pretty good deal).

It says up to $500 off the iPhone 12 range but not more specific details.

Given that the iPhone 12 mini 64gb has an RRP of $1,199 and the cost of the cheapest plan is $55 it is safe to say that the iPhone mini 64gb will be $500 off based on the total minimum cost of $754.

Other deals include:

  • iPad Air 4 64GB cellular for $899 ($200 off so the same cost as the wifi only version)
  • Apple Watch SE 40mm $404 ($100 off RRP)

Guessing full details will be out tomorrow for all the deals.

It says specials are available both online and in store.

    Probably the boring $10 monthly credit on Sim plans and data plans, that's it. That's it.

      New iPhone range getting cheaper?
      Wow, maybe we can expect the Covid-19 outbreak to end soon or hell will freeze over first XD

        Yeah I know hard to believe but I pulled the trigger on a Cx65 after they remained stubbornly high and doubting the rumours of the new C1 being cheaper but some prices on the c1 are already pretty sharp.

      •  

        Wasn't the new Pixel phones (or maybe the ones coming out next) cheaper than the previous gen?

        • +3 votes

          Yes pixel had a significant price drop because they chose to use a mid range processor rather than the previous years flagship specifications

      •  

        Yeah but you can't buy one.

          Haven't you heard? Now Apple is *antifragile
          Which seems to be a wanky way of saying they keep up their own supply

          •  

            @crentist: Antifragile. It's really just a bullsh!t term for having a large market share and abundant slave labor at your disposal.

      •  

        Ya, they're pushing the 120hz screen, which is the biggest "VISUAL" upgrade for years - those sales won't be cheaper and the "tech people" WILL upgrade.
        Also, now that they're pushing EVERYONE to use QR codes to enter anywhere, people who never had phones will buy one - flocking straight to the iPhone seeing it's the most recognisable. There will be a cheap option that will target the elderly and ultra frugal.

      yeah because they probably wont be much different :/

    Only iPhone 12 Mini models, and not the other larger models?
    Must be because Mini has not been selling well and now Apple wants to get rid of it.

    • +1 vote

      Possibly going to replace it with a cheaper but largely identical model. The 2020 iPad Pro 11” was heavily discounted a few months ago, but it’s largely the same as the 2021 model.

    Minis have been $3-400 off for awhile.

      $400? For an iPhone mini?

    Is this Telstra’s equivalent to Prime day deals?

  • +3 votes

    If it requires telstra plan to get the discount on the phone, and then early termination charges… it will void the entire bargain. Going to wait and see.

      With the Mini $250 discount now on business you get the $250 credit lump sum on second bill.

      agree, 64gb doesn't really cut it I think. doesn't leave much storage unless subscribing to cloud service.

    Maybe they can offer a cheaper 5g plan.

    The Samsung Phones are also discounted. I suppose Optus and Vodafone will match these prices so as to not be undersold.

      "We’ll have $500 off the latest smartphones from Apple and Samsung, with an iPhone 12 mini 64GB for $699, and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G for $1348"

      • +2 votes

        $500 off the iphone 12 128gb would put at a perfect price point $929 (rrp $1429) prior to 13 release, be surprised if they discount it by that much

      •  

        Ugh.. $699+contract = no deal

        "Min cost: $699
        Outright purchases are only available with eligible plans."

        That's false advertising. The minimum cost is NOT $699 if I can't buy without a plan.

        •  

          From how I read it, you need to pay for 1 month (at signup) but plan length is min. 1 month, so you can cancel straight away? When they disclose min cost it reads phone cost +$55, which looks pretty appealing still

            @icomeforthecomments: They kick and scream about the plan, but you can just add to cart without selecting a plan and it checks out fine.

            Did that with my Pixel 5 on black Friday, just ordered ip12 for mum.

          Don't need the plan, just don't select a plan and bit add to cart.

          You can buy it without a plan for $699 despite their website claiming otherwise.

    iPad Air has been $150 off for a while now, so more like an extra $50 off, but still a discount I suppose

    •  

      For a current gen iPad which is not too old into the lifecycle, I think $200 off a cellular model is a reasonably good deal especially if there's stock as I found in the last month it was quite difficult to find any readily available stock of the iPad Air 64GB Cellular (for the wife's birthday gift).

  •  

    Do JB usually match these deals?

      If it's on a brick and mortar store which it is, yes.

      They will either take it off the shelves or just say thats below our cost price or they dont match it with telstra

      Just checked out too, but when I pressed buy, it gave me an error but my card charged. Did you receive your order confirmation in your email?

      •  

        Yes, i got order confirmation email

        •  

          Hmm, oh well, just have to wait see the email came through otherwise I’ll chase up with Telstra in the morning.

              @fantoo: Still no emails/ sms. My credit card still have pending charge.

      You can get $50/$55 cashback from cashrewards/shopback if you buy it on a plan. Just choose the cheapest plan and you can cancel after it is tracked, Telstra should give you a pro-rata refund on the plan too.

      • +1 vote

        Prorata is no longer a thing with the Upfront plans

        •  

          Ah I see, I haven't been doing the cancellation tricks for a while. But anyway with the cash back you still get a month free on the cheapest plan. There is no credit check for existing Telstra customers either.

      Yes. But the fact you need to go in as plan probably rules them out. Worth a try.

      •  

        you don't have to. I just bought it outright

          • +1 vote

            @festivalmayhem: Just pick the phone, storage, outright etc. Don't select a plan, add to cart.

            Everything says you need a plan, but it checks out just fine without and confirms the outright price and $0/m ongoing later in the process.

  •  

    If I choose the plan in combination with the phone device, and cancel after 1 month, do I just pay out the device cost?

    •  

      Yes, but it will be easy to buy outright and save on monthly costs.
      I was not able to order..going to sleep.

      •  

        try the app

  •  

    I wonder if Telstra stores are offering this?
    Can you sign up for a new plan then cancel once you get home?

      You can buy without the plan, just don't pick plan and hit add to cart at the bottom.

          Have Telstra id2 but only logged in part way thru checkout. Was ip12 128gb, just chrome on Android.

      Did you use the app or the browser?

      Used browser had an issue.

      No issue on the app

    Just checked Telstra website and not many deals on Telstra Day! All I see is the S21 Ultra and iPad Air, nothing else. Is this like they keep releasing new devices every hour or two and we keep checking through the day?
