Optus tempts Lumia 950 buyers with free Xbox One

Alex Kidman 30 November 2015

Optus’ pre-order signup bonus for the Microsoft Lumia 950 or Microsoft Lumia 950XL is a free Xbox One to the first 300 customers.

It’s not exactly free in that anything you sign up with on a mobile contract is always really just subsumed into the overall cost of the handset itself.

That being said, we already know the outright price for both handsets at $999 for the for the Lumia 950 and $1129 for the Lumia 950XL.

Everything that the Lumia 950 boasts, including a 20MP camera, ZEISS lens and Windows 10 OS, on a crisp 5.7" display.

Given the asking price of $499 for the 1TB Xbox One bundle Optus is offering, which includes FIFA 16, there’s a reasonable saving there as long as you already had either the Lumia 950 or Lumia 950XL in your sights. With only 300 bundles, however, you'd need to be quick. Optus is currently taking pre-orders, with actual handset availability set for 7 December.

Optus will offer the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL handsets on its My Plan Plus contracts over 24 months. Here's how each of the contracts works out over that two year span:
