Telstra Day flash sale: up to $500 off the hottest smartphones

Telstra is dropping prices on some of its most in-demand phones and tech, in a new one-day-only sale the telco is calling ‘Telstra Day’.

Buy a discounted device online or in-store on Thursday, August 5, and you could save up to $500 off the recommended retail price when you add your phone to a Telstra plan. The massive sale includes premium smartphones such as the iPhone 12 series and the Samsung Galaxy S21 range, as well as Apple accessories like AirPods and the Apple Watch SE.

The ‘day of unreal deals’ ends at midnight August 5, so customers have just 24 hours to snap up a bargain. However, the offers are available online, in all Telstra retail stores, and via Call and Collect for areas in lockdown, as well as by following the links below.

Here’s some of the huge discounts on offer this Telstra Day.

Smartphone deals: save on iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S21

  • iPhone 12 Mini: $500 discount
  • iPhone 12: $400 discount
  • iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max: $150 discount
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra: $500 discount
  • Samsung Galaxy S21: $250 discount

All of the above price cuts are available to new and upgrading customers who add their phone to a Telstra Upfront mobile plan. You can pick up each device on a 12 or 24-month handset payment plan, which spreads the full cost over equal monthly repayments, or choose to buy outright at the discounted price. If you opt for a payment plan, your discount will be applied across all 12 or 24 months of repayments; if you cancel your service earlier, you may be required to pay out the full remaining balance, minus any discount.

The iPhone 12 and Galaxy S21 ranges can be paired with any of Telstra’s four Upfront plans. But as the Small Telstra plan doesn’t include access to the telco’s 5G network — and the Galaxy S21 and iPhone 12 lines are both 5G-capable — many customers may prefer to opt for a pricier plan to use Telstra 5G.

Telstra’s Upfront plans begin at $55 per month for 40GB of high-speed data, and all include unlimited standard national talk and text, plus unlimited speed-capped data restricted to 1.5Mbps. All plans are contract-free, so you can switch between plans as needed while paying for your new smartphone. Telstra plans for the iPhone 12 and Samsung Galaxy S21 are below.
