What are TeleChoice Kogan offers and how can I take advantage of them?
Telechoice Kogan offers are online exclusive (also available in some stores) deals that knock $10 per month off some TeleChoice SIM-only plans, on a 24 month contract or a month-to-month plan. You need to sign up online, in most cases, to take advantage of the offer.
For a comparison of costs let’s look at the Live Global Plan:
The $35 Live Global Plan ($2000 call credit for national and international calls, unlimited SMS and 3GB data) is a 24-month plan. Alternatively, you can sign up on a month-to-month basis for $40 per month on the Live Starter plan for the same inclusions above. For big talkers, consider the $55 Live Global Plan (unlimited standard national calls, voicemail, unlimited SMS and MMS,100 international minutes and 4GB data with a 2GB bonus). The month-to-month alternative for this plan is the $55 Live Starter, however this plan only features 4GB (with a 1GB bonus) and no included international minutes.
The TeleChoice Kogan Offer is a great way to save money each month over a 24 month period. If you are not sure if you want a 24 month contract, you can apply through TeleChoice for a month to month plan. This is more expensive per month, but you won’t be locked in and you won’t be charged for cancelling your plan if you decide to switch after a few months.
TeleChoice Review | Pros and Cons
