ALDImobile’s Super Pack offers 42GB of data

ALDImobile’s take on a prepaid yearly plan gives you all of your data at once.

Prepaid mobile deals can offer significant savings if you’re happy to live within the constraints of a fixed usage pattern, and especially if you don’t actually need a new handset to use mobile services. ALDIMobile has for some time provided a 365-day PAYG prepaid product with low recharge rates ideal for those who just want a phone other folks can call. Now it has also launched an in-store only 365-day prepaid deal for those with heavier usage needs.

ALDImobile’s 1 Year Super Pack will set you back a rather wallet-alarming $249 outright, in return for which you’ll get unlimited standard national calls and texts as well as 42GB of data to use across the year. ALDImobile pitches this as the equivalent of 3.5GB per month, and while its sums do add up, this is a different model to the other players in the prepaid yearly space.

Kogan Mobile and Vaya offer upfront yearly deals , but both offer a monthly data stipend, rather than giving you all your data to use upfront. It’s also worth noting that Vaya’s 6-month plans are offered on a postpaid basis, which means it’s possible to incur additional charges on those plans.

ALDImobile is offering a one-size-fits-all deal where Vaya and Kogan Mobile have differing price and data tiers as well. Taking the closest price match, how do each of their deals compare?

Right now it’s a slightly tricky comparison as Kogan is offering discounts on their 12-month plans that are set to expire at the end of January, while ALDImobile’s plan won’t go on sale until 4 February 2017, when it will be available in ALDI stores only.

As such, if you act rapidly you could score a slightly better deal through either carrier. Vaya’s price match guarantee might not cover ALDImobile’s deal as it is presented by ALDImobile as available "for a limited time only", which means that Vaya may well view it as a promotional price and therefore ineligible. Your choice might
