  • Not to complain about free data but this is much better than what Amaysim offered me - an extra 10GB for 28 days.

    Wonder how loyal of a customer you must be at Optus?

    • +2

      I've been with Optus for 9 years, spending $150 a month with them. I got nothing. It's not loyalty.

      • It's favouritism 😉

      • +1

        $150? You really need a new plan.

  • Definitely targeted, nothing here :(

  • +1

    I got it. I'm only on their $30/month plan.

    • Ditto. On $30.00 Plan and did not receive offer but was able to get the extra 20GB.

  • +9

    Didn't get a SMS about it but checked anyway and saw it there. Sweet!

    • +1

      Same here.

      • Same…

  • Worked for me!

  • +1

    Got it! Now to wait until we're free from lockdown so I can go outside and use my data.

  • +1

    Thanks OP. I didn't get any text but the option is available in my app.

  • Awesome got it thanks

  • +2

    Received this - no text but shows in the app. Honestly don't see myself even using this but will activate anyway - I really only use 1-5GB per month and I've got unlimited (1.5Mbps after all used).

    • +3

      I have a 30GB plan that I barely use 1GB on each month. Activated it anyway cause hey, free data.

      • +2

        Same here. I use the "donate my data" feature at the end of the month, so I guess now I'll be donating a lot more data?

  • +1

    Nothing waiting for me there. I have business account with like 10 post paid services.

  • Got it. I'm on the $39 10GB/month plan. I had a previous free data offer, so now I've got 50GB/month. Thanks Optus.

  • +1

    I didn’t get it. But hey I’m only spending $350 a month on 7 plans. Don’t worry - I still love you Optus.

  • Thanks for the heads up, but I didn't receive text, and no option in the My Optus app> For You.

    • Did you select "+ Get more data"

      • +1

        Yes, I checked the "+ Get More Data" and even went the other way via Services> Buy More Data. I only had options of 2GB $5, 10GB $10, 30GB $20, and Unlimited Data Day $5 - see screenshot here -

        However, my friend who also uses Optus didn't receive the SMS, but did have the 20GB $0 option - see screenshot -

        Nonetheless, thanks for the suggestion :)

        • I also had the 20GB $0 option. Happy days.

        • Have you tried rebooting your computer? No seriously, maybe update the my Optus app and log off then log back in.
          I did not get the sms but offer was there. After claiming the offer my app did not update with the extra 20GB until 24 hours later. So maybe log off then in might help

          • @beefmaster: Thanks for your suggestions to try the Optus website on my computer, and reinstalling/re-login My Optus app. However, in both cases, I unfortunately still don't have the 20GB $0 option.

  • +2

    Thanks OP,
    I didn't get the SMS, but followed your instructions in the app and it was there. Winning :)

  • Awesome got it on the 20gb plan for $40.50/month student discount

  • Thanks OP. Got it on the old $40: 15gb p/m plan.

  • Lol, I received, on $45 per month 60GB from a few years ago and got another 25GB somewhere along the way so now 105GB. Just checked and I've only used 8.19GB this billing cycle (1 day left).

  • +1

    Took a while but then my app changed its layout and then it was there.

  • Got it as well. Thanks op

  • -1

    Go it was on old $25 account 10gb plan. Thanks

  • +2

    Got it, on both services in the account, both some old $35 for 30gb plans. Didn’t get the message though, so thanks OP!

    • Same. Went for a look and activated it. My off spring are stuck home most of the time so don't need it really. But Optus have become incompetent in last year or so, so hey take it!

  • +1

    Thanks OP! I didn't get the text but I'm on the $35/month sim only plan and it was available in my Optus app :)

  • Got it on my 50% off $7.50 5 GB plan/separate account I signed up to a few weeks back, but not on my Optus one account.

  • +1

    I got the email but confirmed with other people that don't that they can still follow the process and it showed the 20gb Auto renew option as free for them too in the add on section of the app.

    Also noticed I had the offer advertised in my app whereas the other people didn't but still worked.

  • +1

    being stuck at home no one really uses much data - I have 80GB on telstra and I
    might use like 5GB of it. Bit of a false economy offering ppl under lockdown extra data

  • Thanks! I already have 85gb,now I have 105gb! Win win even if I won't use it!

  • +1

    Nice, working for me here, thanks OP…although I rarely used up my current 20GB, now. I have 40GB.

  • Thanks OP got it for my postpaid sim only plan.

  • Thanks OP! Worked for me too.

  • +1

    I didn't receive any sms about the offer but managed to get a total of 60GB extra on 3 of the mobiles on the account. Hardly use all up due being mostly at home. Will use it to "donate" your data to their charity for a good cause. Thanks OP.

  • +3

    Worked for me - many thanks. Also, note that if you aren't using the extra data you can donate any leftovers in the app as well - more info on the program here -

  • +3

    Ty for sharing!

    I barely touch my 20gb each month, now I'll have an extra 20gb to donate :D

  • Worked for me - got extra 20GB on $44 80GB sim only plan. So now I got 100GB per month. Thanks Optus.

  • +1

    Thanks OP! I have two services on my account, and was able to add it from within the app for free (just once).
    This… and the free 12 months prime from Optus…. they're doing the right things to retain me as a customer!

  • Now I have 80 GB a month and I am paying 39 dollars a month. Noice!

  • Thank you. Worked for me.

  • Brilliant 👏

  • Got it. Amazing.

  • I have two connections linked to my account. Both allowed 20gigs to be added.

  • Thanks OP.
    Another 20gb I can donate to the kids

  • Why can’t I find the 20GB of data, It only has 2,10 and 30Gb?

    • That’s means you are not targeted unfortunately. Maybe try chat if they can add manually?

  • +1

    No text for me but found it under offers and added successfully! I am only on a 5Gb plan I got for $7.50 a month. What a Jack Pot! ))

  • It's in the app for me but no sms at all!
    Thanks OP!

  • I'm not worried about data.

  • awesome thanks OP! worked for me on the 80gb/mth plan

  • Thanks OP, works for me

  • I did not receive the offer but my brothers did and I made them sign up to Optus :/

  • No SMS but $0 20GB option is there in my app 👍

  • Thanks OP.

    No text but offer was in app.

    Now have 70.5GBs a month for the next 12 months (on a $36.50 month SIM only plan with 50.5GBs) ($31.50 a month which includes 10% student discount and an extra $5 a month for Apple Watch number share)

  • Nothing here $65 Optus one 500 gigs plus data month to month 20 gigs $15 plus device

  • Thanks OP 👌

  • no text but offer was in the app. $40 20 gig plan since early 2016.

  • I was on 100gb for $50/mo plan + 4gb overseas roaming + unlimited international to 20 countries.

    I now have 20gb more for $0

  • Thanks OP got it! Didn't get any text but it was available on the app. Looks like it's 20 gb for each number as well. Got 20gigs each for my two numbers.

  • Good deal, but will I be charged after the 12 month period is up?

    • +1

      Think it just gets removed after 12 months

  • This is my first targeted bonus as far as I remember. Thanks OP

  • Got it, thank you.

  • No text or email but found it in my app as an available offer.

    Perfect timing as I’m about to finally enter hospital for 3 weeks for mental health treatment. I’ll have a bit more extra data to keep me going while away from home. Thanks OP!

    $32 a month now for 30GB(+20GB next 12 months) with Optus Sport for Premier League. Plus 12 months free subscription to Amazon Prime. Don’t think I’ll find much of a better deal out there.

    • Good on you! I'm paying $35/month with 20GB only. May I ask your post paid plan so I can apply the same plan. Thank you. Be strong and keep safe mate.

      • My apologies iioisac but I believe my plan was an advertised special plan which is no longer available. I signed up to it 3 years ago. Nothing better has ever appeared and they can’t force me to change.

        I hope a deal can pop up for you at some point, or you get access to the extra 20GB. Take care pal!

  • I really don't get why people pay crazy postpaid prices.

  • Thanks OP. Found it in my app. Was available for all plans on my account.

  • I really needed this offer one month earlier when I had no NBN but I’ll still take it now!

  • Didnt get it on the Half Price $7.50/5GB data plan in the old system that I signed up for in early august.

    Did show on my new Half Price $12.50/25GB plan in the new system.

  • +2

    I registered for the $7.50/month account and got subhub and the free 20GB/month

    • +1

      Its best $7.50 ill be spending for the next 12 months! Canceled the old telstra $5/5gb as it reset to $15!

  • Got this deal a few days ago and today received an email about the bonus. It was also mentioned on a recent bill. This is for a Business account.
