Catch.com.au is launching its own prepaid mobile service
The popular online retailer is teaming up with Optus to add cheap mobile plans to its growing business.
As one of the biggest names in Australian online retail, Catch.com.au, parent company Catch Group, is no stranger to providing Aussies with bargain products and services across a wide range of categories. Today, Catch Group adds yet another feather into its cap with the launch of its own prepaid mobile service.
Dubbed Catch Connect, the service currently offers 30-day and 90-day prepaid mobile plans as well as 30-day data-only plans. All these plans operate on Optus' 4G network and, as with most prepaid plans, feature no-lock-in contracts.
The real kicker here, though, is how Catch Group is leveraging the popularity of Catch.com.au to encourage users to sign up. From now until 9 March, select Catch Connect plans come bundled with "CatchBack" shopping vouchers redeemable on Catch.com.au. The $39 90-day mobile plan, for instance, comes with three $13 vouchers for use in transactions over $60. However, the three vouchers must be used in separate transactions.
"Our customers prioritise choice and value, so when it came to designing Catch Connect, we wanted to create a unique and differentiated offering that delivers additional value to users," said Nati Harpaz, CEO of Catch Group.
Catch Connect's prepaid mobile plans all come with unlimited calls and texts to standard numbers within Australia. If you have friends or family across the pond, $5 extra a month will get you up to 100 international minutes to 32 select countries, while $10 extra a month will get you up to 300 international minutes to those same countries.
And for all those times you run out of data just a few days before your next recharge, Catch Connect offers data top-ups of 1GB for $10 and 2GB for $15.
