How do I get a bonus Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic with my Samsung Galaxy S21?
You can get a complimentary Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic when you purchase a Samsung Galaxy S21 through Telstra before the end of October 25.
This purchase can be either on a 12, 24, 36-month payment plan or purchased outright. The Samsung Galaxy S21 costs $1,248, or $52 per month on a 24-month plan. You can pick it up in Phantom Grey, Phantom Pink, Phantom Violet, or Phantom White (if your selected colour isn’t available, Telstra will let you back-order it).

When you purchase your Samsung Galaxy S21, you’ll need to follow some steps to claim the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Here’s what you need to do:

To purchase your S21 through Telstra, you’ll need to sign up on a Telstra Upfront plan with no lock-in contract, although keep in mind that if you cancel your Telstra plan, you’ll have to pay out the phone cost entirely. Terms apply. You can find applicable Samsung Galaxy S21 plans in the table below.

Should I get a Samsung Galaxy S21 through Telstra?
There’s no way to downplay it – this is a pretty good deal, especially if you’re looking for a new smartphone and a new smartwatch simultaneously. Although $1,248 might be a bit steep for some people, getting a $649 Galaxy Watch 4 Classic smartwatch is a nice bonus, no matter what way you look at it. You should also feel pretty good about picking the Samsung Galaxy S21 up on its own, as it’s considered one of 2021’s best smartphones.
As for Telstra, although the telco offers 5G access, unlimited data plans (speed-capped at 1.5Mbps) and some pretty sweet bonuses and deals (like this one we’re discussing today), you’ll usually spend more on a Telstra plan than on a plan from a smaller provider. So if price is a factor, it’s absolutely worth shopping around for a cheaper phone plan, as even the cheapest Telstra upfront plan is $55 per month.
