If you’ve been waiting for Boxing Day to snap up a smartphone bargain, both telcos and manufacturers are giving customers limited-time holiday discounts. And while there’s limited iPhone specials on offer, there’s plenty of awesome deals available on Android devices, including hundreds of dollars slashed from premium Galaxy smartphones.

We’ve rounded up several of the biggest promotions on offer during the Christmas and New Year period, including deals from Telstra, Vodafone, Woolworths Mobile, and Realme. Most of these offers will go live either Christmas Day or Boxing Day, so check back if your deal of choice isn’t yet available. 

Telstra Boxing Day deals

Technically, Telstra isn’t running a Boxing Day discount but is instead running a Summer Sale, offering price cuts on devices until January 14 and January 18, depending on the deal. 

From December 26, you can get up to $500 in Telstra credit (effectively saving you that much money in device payments) when you sign up on a Telstra plan. 

Telstra is offering each discount via a single upfront bill credit, which will be applied to your account by your second bill for your new plan and device. See below for all the best deals:
