Virgin Mobile celebrates its birthday with 20% off SIM-only 12 month plans

Plus 15% off any month to month SIM-only plan, or bonus data if you sign up for a phone plan.

Virgin Mobile Australia hits its 17th birthday anniversary this month, which means it's still just a tad young to go out and buy itself a beer. Instead, it's offering up special deals on its SIM-only plans, as well as a data bonus for any new Phone Plan customers.

If you sign up for a Virgin Mobile new Phone Plan before 8 November 2017, you'll get a "data gift" of 10GB, 15GB or 20GB, depending on your plan tier. The $40, $45 and $55 plans (excluding handset repayments) get 10GB, the $70 and $80 plans score 15GB and the top end $100/month plan scores a 20GB data bonus. The data will roll over if not used, in accordance with Virgin Mobile's standard data rollover terms and conditions.

If you're happy with your handset but you're comparing SIM-only plans, Virgin Mobile's birthday specials slice down the price of all 12 month SIM-only plans by 20%. That brings the monthly cost of its entry level 12 month SIM-only plan down to just $24 a month with unlimited standard national calls and texts and 5GB of data, while at the top end, the $60 plan would cost you just $48 per month for the same call and text inclusions plus 22GB of data and $500 calling value for international calls and texts. That discount deal runs through to 8 November 2017.

If you're not keen on a full year's commitment, Virgin Mobile is also dropping plan pricing for its month-to-month SIM-only plans by 15%. That brings its entry level $30 plan down to $25.50 with 2.5GB of data, while the top end $80 plan would cost you just $68 with 14GB of data. Like the other "birthday" discounts, you'll have to sign up before 8 November 2017 to qualify for the discount.
