Vodafone adds bonus data to prepaid recharges for a year
Until early 2017, score an additional 2GB of data for every recharge above $40.
Vodafone’s latest deal for its prepaid mobile customers focuses on additional data if you’re prepared to recharge at least $40 each time. Unusually, this isn’t a deal that just runs through for a month or two, but is instead set to run throughout all of 2016.
The only catch here is that you’ve got to sign up for or recharge on a Vodafone Combo deal worth $40 or more before 26 January 2016. Do that, and every time you recharge you’ll get an additional 2GB of data through to 25 January 2017.
What that does is open up a fairly wide data gulf between the entry level $30 recharge tier and the higher cost $40 and $50 tiers. Here’s how the plans now compare with the 2GB data bonus included.

|Expiry Period||28 Days||28 Days||28 Days|
It is worth bearing in mind that Vodafone's expiry period is only 28 days, so you would end up with potentially 13 recharges through this period rather than 12 for a 30-day plan. Vodafone also notes that the bonus data "may" take up to 72 hours to be applied to a qualifying plan, so it would be wise to limit your usage immediately after a recharge to avoid running out of regular usage data.
