Virgin Mobile’s Christmas offer is $100 credit
Sign up for a $50 phone plan and Virgin Mobile will credit you back two month’s payments.
Virgin Mobile’s latest plan offering just prior to Christmas sees the telco offering a $100 credit to any customer signing up for a $50/month plan. It doesn't take a huge lunge towards the office calculator to work out that this is effectively a "two months free" promotion, especially as it only applies to the $50/month contract tier.
Specifically, it's for a 24 month contract plan excluding any additional handset repayment costs, although at $50 per month you could score an iPhone SE 16GB, Samsung Galaxy S5, Huawei P9, Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, Sony Xperia XA or LG Stylus DAB+ handset with nothing extra to pay.
The $50 plan comes with unlimited standard national calls and texts, as well as $100 credit towards standard international calls to spend every month.
The plan normally comes with 2GB of data, but as part of a promotion running until 31 January 2017, that’s doubled to 4GB per month. Unused data rolls over to the next month on this plan.
The $100 credit promotion itself only runs until 11 January 2017. Over 24 months, you’d pay a minimum of $1100 including that $100 credit, presuming no excess data or international call costs were incurred on top of regular usage.
Virgin Mobile’s services operate on parent company Optus’ 4G networks across Australia.
