Telstra Father's Day Sale

With Father's Day just around the corner, we're giving all you last-minute planners some easy-to-order gift options for your tech-loving dad.

Phones, tablets and watches are the gifts that keep on giving thanks to a longer shelf life.

Luckily, you can now score some of the popular iPhone, Samsung, Fitbit gadgets and more for up to a $400 discount through Telstra until 6 September 2021.

Expect delivery time to be 3-7 days (quicker for metro areas).

iPhone 12 Mini surprise for Father's Day $400 off

For a compact but powerful mobile, the black iPhone 12 Mini makes for a great Father's Day gift. Especially if holding a big phone isn't your pop's cup of tea.

If you or your dad are already a Telstra customer, you can purchase the phone outright (online only) for $799 (64GB) or $879 (128GB). That's $400 off the original RRP of $1,199 or $1,279 respectively.

Otherwise, you will need to add a Telstra plan to get the phone. The cheapest one will cost you $55 for 40GB.

What's the cost break down for adding a phone plan?

Assuming you're going with the cheapest Telstra phone plan, expect to pay $55 per month plus:

  • iPhone 12 Mini 64GB: $66.57 a month over 12 months, or $33.28 a month over 24 months
  • iPhone 12 Mini 128GB: $73.24 a month over 12 months, or $36.62 a month over 24 months

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G $250 off

Is your dad more of a Samsung-loving fella than an Apple fan? We reckon the S20 FE 5G (128GB) would be a solid Father's Day gift.

It's mostly everything you'd want in a phone with long battery life, fast performance and quality cameras that make taking pictures a fun activity.

Your colour options include lavender, black and white.

Again, existing Telstra customers can purchase it outright (online only) for $749. That's $250 off the original RRP of $999.

Otherwise, you'll need to add on a Telstra plan and pay a minimum $55 a month for 40GB.

Assuming you're going with the cheapest Telstra phone plan, expect to pay $55 a month plus:

Oppo Find X3 Pro 5G $350 off and bonus gift

Oppo Find X3 Pro 5G (256GB) is a premium phone that's competing with the big dogs like Apple and Samsung in the high-end range.

Expect fantastic cameras, plenty of software customisation options, and a solid-looking display. However, the downside is the price.

Even with the $350 discount from Telstra, you'll end up dishing out $1,349 if you're already a Telstra customer and are purchasing it outright online.

BUT, you do get a couple of freebies on the side: a bonus Google Nest Hub 2 and Google Chromecast.

Keep in mind, if you're not a Telstra customer, you'll also have to add a phone plan and pay a minimum $55 a month for 40GB.
