Circles.Life – 100GB for $30
Perennial favourite Circles.Life has overhauled its plans and, surprise, the super popular 100GB is still a great deal.
Until 9 November, you can grab the first 6 months at $30 a month. Even though the price will jump back up to $45, it will remain one of the best 100GB deals out there.
And with Circles' 30-day satisfaction guarantee, you can get a full refund if you aren't happy in the first month, so long as you haven't burned more than 5GB.
- Bonus plan: An honourable mention goes out to the 160GB plan, which is discounted to $45 for the first 6 months, hopping up to $55 afterwards, designed for anyone who thinks 100GB isn't quite enough.
felix mobile – 1 month free
If data limits make you break out in hives, carbon-neutral subscription service felix mobile could be more your speed.
felix does away with data limits in favour of a universal 20Mbps speed cap, which should still be good enough for browsing, gaming and video streaming.
Sign up before 31 March and you'll get your first month free. After that you'll pay $35 a month.
Plus, if environmental gestures make you happy, felix plants a tree for every month you subscribe, which is nice.

Catch Connect – 85GB long expiry for $89
Not content with only slashing prices or giving extra data, $89 for 85GB.
After the first year, the plan reverts to its original inclusions and price, but that's still a whole year of cheap data.
It's all hosted on the Optus 3G/4G network, and you have until 10 November to grab this deal.
Optus – 500GB for $65
For the true streaming fiends among us, 500GB for $65.
If you sign up before 17 November, you'll get a whole year with this $50 discount plus a complimentary Optus Sport subscription and free talk and text to 35 countries.
Once 12 months have passed, you'll go back to paying $115 a month, instead.
If you have access to Optus's blazing-fast 5G network in your area, you won't have to worry about having too much data. 5G can burn through GBs almost as fast as you can line them up.
Lebara – 100GB long expiry for $99
If Catch Connect's 85GB long expiry plan wasn't quite enough for you, Lebara might be able to bridge the gap.
You can pick up a 360-day expiry plan with a full 100GB for $99 until 30 November. The price will jump back to $140 on the next recharge.
This is almost exactly the same value as Catch, but with bigger numbers involved.
Spreading your use out over the year like this can be a nice change of pace from the monthly data grind.
Plus, Lebara lets you bank any of the data you didn't use for the next year, which can be handy.
