5 mobile plans that are great for life after lockdown
Get enough data on your mobile plan so you're not struggling to upload your Instagram stories while you're out and about.
While you might be booking flights and Airbnbs for life after lockdown, don't forget about sense-checking your mobile plan, especially if you've downgraded due to stay-at-home orders.
Luckily, the start of October is flirting with some great deals that will get you a good amount of data without a hefty price tag.
Here are 5 deals that are standing out to us this month.
You can choose from:
Keep in mind you'll have to be a new customer to the provider to grab these deals.

Thanks to a Finder exclusive, you can get amaysim's 50GB mobile plan for only $10 for the first 3 renewals. The same plan on amaysim's website costs $40.
And no, there's no catch. As long as you sign up via Finder you can claim the discounted price that'll stay steady for your first 3 renewals.
After that, the cost goes up to $35 per recharge which is still a good price for access to Optus's full 4G network.
But if you're really not keen on sticking around for the long haul, there's no lock-in contract in play either.
If you sign up today, you'll have 50GB a month until the end of the year, giving you plenty of data to stream Spotify and keep your social media feed up to date when restrictions are lifted.
