Phone Plan Deals May 2019

If you’re shopping around for a mobile phone deal, now is a good time to do it. You’ll soon realise that most of the time these deals come on a month-to-month basis, with a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) that operates off one of the three networks in Australia. They get a wholesale network and, consequently, have a bit of room to move on price; examples of MVNOs are Amaysim, Boost Mobile, Dodo and supermarket mobile brands such as Woolworths Mobile and ALDI.

Expect deals like a few dollars off the normal monthly rates, extra data, freebies, or even all of the above. However, also be aware that some deals come with a catch. Hit the links below to jump to your favourite carrier:

The tables below features a selection of published plans from each provider. Some sponsored products include a direct link to the provider’s website – for a greater selection of plans, search with our mobile comparison tool above.

Vodafone Mobile Phone Deals

Vodafone, perhaps unsurprisingly, has some enticing mobile phone deals running most of the time. Most commonly found across its plans is bonus data, depending on your choice of plan. Vodafone has even been known to offer free Netflix subscriptions from time to time, although this promo isn’t available currently.

Vodafone often boosts data allowances – current offers include 2GB to 70GB of bonus data on selected SIM-only 12-month plans, as outlined below. Plans with phones now include up to 70GB bonus data. Students can score bonuses like extra data or discounts on plans, so keep an eye out for what is currently on offer.

Currently you can get double the international minutes on select Zone 1 countries, with the $50 SIM Only Plus Plan including 1000 bonus minutes in addition to the 1000 included minutes. The $60 SIM Only plans include 2000 bonus minutes, while the $80 SIM Only Plus plan includes a bonus 3000 minutes, bringing the total up to 6000 minutes.

The more you spend, the more bonuses you stand to receive. Out of the ‘Big 3’, Vodafone seems to be the most generous with its bonus data, but you’ll have to weigh up if that is worth switching. Unlike Telstra and Optus, you won’t get any entertainment extras thrown in, but you can add these on for $5-$15 extra each month. If you’re looking for a new phone, you’ll have the choice of plans similar to the below SIM-only plans, however data inclusions may vary on the phone plans.

What’s the deal with these mobile phone deals?

Choosing a mobile phone plan is more than just naming your price and how much data, calls and texts you want. If there are two identical plans that have caught your eye, then you’d probably be best going with the one that offers the most incentives.

These incentives usually come in the form of extra data, periodical discounts and bonuses, such as entertainment offers or even free accessories. However, there’s usually a catch to get these deals, like buying online only, buying before a certain date, redeeming your offer within a certain period, and so on.

While these deals may be great on paper, you might think twice if you have to do too much legwork. As for the big three providers:

  • Telstra has the data-free Apple music and sports streaming options with access to some of the most popular sport competitions in the country, along with the Telstra Air WiFi network
  • Vodafone seems to be the most generous with bonus data and its plans with unlimited capped data are at reasonable price points
  • Optus tends to have the widest variety of plans and generous entertainment extras

Overall, the main message is that you probably shouldn’t choose a plan just based on what bonuses it offers. You might find these bonuses don’t last for very long or might require you to hop on a more expensive plan than you had intended. In any case, it pays to look at both the big three providers and a range of MVNOs to see what deals are out there and whether a certain provider really suits what you’re looking for.
