Fine Print
• Limit of 1 promo code per person
• 7-day cooling-off refund period does not apply to this deal
• For new customers only. Eligible for both number transfers and new numbers
• Not to be used in conjunction with other promo codes
• First month’s bill will be prorated according to Circles.Life’s 8GB for $18 base plan. Subsequent 3 full months will be offset by the offer purchased on Groupon. E.g. If customer activates the 8GB plan on 15 September, they will be charged pro-rata cost of the plan for the 15 days of usage ($9). Hence, the September bill in this case will reflect as $9. Three subsequent months after this will reflect a $0 bill
• Plan will revert to $18/mth for 8GB per month after the first 3 months
• *Unlimited refers to national standard calls and texts within Australia
• All for use in AU; resets monthly. Excess data: $0.01/MB

      You'll miss out 30% off plus high cashback.

    • You'll regret it.

      They'll ruin your credit rating with false charges!

      • Hi, mate! Please be advised that Credit Check is part of our process when applying for a line.

    Make sure to use coupon “ALL10” to get it for $8.99 and stack with cashback :)

  • What if i activate on 1st oct will i pay full $18?

    • You have until 18 Oct to redeem the code which initiates them sending out a SIM and until 31 Oct to activate the SIM.

      No idea what happens if you activate on 1 Nov or later.

      • It’s possible to activate by 1st Oct which i wonder how much to pay first to offset the subsequent three months worth 9 dollars. Will i pay $18 first and get $9 as credit?

        • Yes I think if you activated on Oct 1 you'd pay $18 for October then $0 for each of the subsequent three months (since we pay the $9.99 for them up front).

          Personally I'll be aiming to activate in the last week of October to minimise the pro-rated first month cost.

          • @mayo: Thats not right then since i am going to pay $27.99 for three months?

            • +1

              @spedohero: Activate at the end of September or October and you'll only pay for the fraction of the month remaining for your first month at $18 * (days_remaining / days_in_month). But yeah you're right it's not strictly speaking $9.99 only which is why I included the T&C in the deal.

    Circles.life has very poor network and lots of hidden fee… will drive you around circle for the rest of the life

      Thanks for the info.
      Saved me the headaches.

    • +1

      I can see that. In your backyard with a short rope tied to one leg, the other to a peg in the ground. Going around in circles trying get a good signal to look at posts on fakebook and insticrap

  • +12

    Not worth this telco at all.! Be careful they also do credit checks.!

    • +4

      In addition, it is actually a postpaid service.

    • Hey there mate! Yes, we do perform credit checks which is a standard process for all postpaid services. Should you have other questions/concerns, please feel free to contact us via our live chat support channels for further assistance. Cheers

  • +8

    They are still spamming me the failed payment emails although I cancelled my account 9 months ago.

  • +18

    Screw these guys, they screwed over a lot of other ozbargainers on their first month free deal. Beware, they are postpaid, and will probably keep charging you after you put in a request to cancel.

    • And they do a Credit Check for every service, so can really ruin your credit rating.

  • No deal I got offer $14 for 18GB for 12months, with them.

  • +4

    Dishonest company. Kept refusing port to Telstra. Played the blame game, took months to fix issue. Ended up being circles fault the whole time. Wouldn't join this company even for a $1 plan

    • +2

      Postpaid service.
      Account number required for porting out, ie customer ID with CL.

      I ported number out twice without issue.

      • Pospaid. So will they do a credit check? Thanks.

        • +1

          Yes, like utility company "soft" check. BTW, it is mentioned in the deal.

          • @Neoika: Thanks. Right, I now see it is mentioned.

        • +1

          Yes. They do a Credit Check and it appears on your record.

  • +1

    So this deal is really only good if you activate the sim in the last few days of September or October otherwise you have to pay a higher pro-rata?

    • I believe so. Thats my understanding

    • +1

      Yes. Also I just noticed this while checking out hawkeye93's post:

      First 3 months from AGL free, also on Optus (just beware $8 port out fee):

    • Yes.

  • I know this is offtopic but does anyone know if there is any cap on the 15% off Groupon shopback?

    Can I purchase this and get the full 15% cashback?


  • not sure if this is exactly the same situation considering this isn't amaysim but some useful answers can be found here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/644566

    • +1

      Not comparable, amaysim is a prepaid service.

  • +2

    They do credit check, not worth it

  • +1

    Code FIND30 takes 30% off, plus 15% SB.

  • +2

    Beware. Absolutely abysmal service from these idiots. I had to get my bank to charge back after I ported out and they kept billing me. Still not sure they won't try to bill me again next month.

    • Change your credit card/number.

    • I remember CL charges the last month usage with it in full. So you should have timed better, e.g. port out 3 days before end of the last month, not in the very beginning of a month.

    Credit-Check required!

    All Postpaid services, including Circles, require one by law.

    So if you fail your Credit-Check, you will waste $9.99 for no reason as you cannot get a refund!


    • +1

      Postpaid service Belong does not require credit check.

      • +1

        True. I must be wrong, Credit Checks for postpaid is NOT Law, it's just a choice the Telco's make:


        Unfortunately, Circles.Life DEFINATELY does Credit Checks - experienced it myself.

        So don't waste your money.

  • Don't waste time and money for such low benefits. Their billing is so confusing to understand. There are other operators out there so seek them out. I never tried this company but heard so much bad about them that I have very low confidence in them.

  • I ported to curled last week, so nownthere better deal, I asked circles if I can get the better deal that’s up which some of you posted especially the $8, I gues the only option is to port to something else then port back to Circles?

  • Honesty not worth effort or time for only 3 months

  • +1

    Probably better to go for the new Amaysim Groupon deal now:

  • -1

    This company is well-known for their jacked-up mobile data cost (rounding to 1MB) and they will NOT help you with anything. You will NOT be able to get a resolution to any of you issues as there is NO call-centre. All messages, emails are dealt with a huge delay.
    Experienced first hand, hence a friendly warning to all would be customers.

    Negging the deal, sorry.

  • So, where does the Groupon Code appear ? do they send you an email with the code ??

    A friend contacted me saying he can't find his Groupon Code.and can't seem to contact them

  • Ended?, I get a no plan available using the activate link & on Groupon No Longer Available.
