Score a free Galaxy Watch 4 with a new S21 from Telstra

Posted: 19 October 2021 4:48 pm

This might be the tech upgrade moment you've been waiting for.

Telstra's latest flash sale is speaking to Samsung fans directly.

From today until 25 October, you can purchase a new Samsung Galaxy S21 5G from Telstra and receive a Galaxy Watch 4 or Galaxy Watch 4 Classic for free.

If you've been eyeing the watch for some time, along with a phone upgrade, now's the time to pounce and save up to $649.

Telstra's flash sale: How does it work?

You will need to be an existing Telstra customer or be willing to get on a Telstra mobile plan to get in on the offer.

You will then have the option to purchase the S21 outright or on a phone plan. Both the 128GB and 256GB models are available with this offer.

Here's a breakdown of what you can expect to pay in either of the 2 options:

Purchasing outright

  • Samsung Galaxy S21 5G (128GB): $1,248
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 5G (256GB): $1,344

With a Telstra phone plan

  • 36 months: Prices start from $89.66 a month
  • 24 months: Prices start from $107 a month
  • 12 months: Prices start from $159 a month

You can also cancel your Telstra phone repayment plan earlier than the contract term as long as you pay off the remaining cost of the device.

Is there a catch?

There is a small catch to this deal in terms of the amount of effort required to claim it.

Telstra isn't just going to send you your Galaxy watch when you purchase the phone.

Once your purchase for a new S21 device has gone through with Telstra, you will then need to head to the Samsung redemption page yourself between 26 October and 30 November. The link won't be available before then.

The page will ask you to upload the receipt and the IMEI number for your phone.

Samsung will then deliver your watch within 60 days of sending its confirmation email. This delay isn't optimal but if it means saving a few hundred dollars, we reckon that's an easy compromise to make.

Is this deal worth it?

The Telstra sale is absolutely worth it if you want a free watch with your brand new phone. Just remember, your watch could take up to 2 months to arrive.

If you're keen, make sure you sign up by 25 October so you're eligible for the deal.
