If you're a current Optus customer with suggestible family or friends, you can grab up to $150 in account credit thanks to the telco's new, end-of-financial-year promotion.
Optus is giving current subscribers a $50 credit for every friend referred to the company's postpaid mobile plans. And if you're a new referred customer, you'll enjoy 25% off your monthly plan price for your first 24 months with Optus.
The deal is available for selected current Optus customers only, and you can refer up to three friends or family members for a maximum of $150 in credit. Credit is valid for every eligible customer whose referred friend activates a new postpaid mobile service that remains active for 30 days.
How do I refer friends?
To qualify, you can enter your mobile number and details on Optus' EOFY offer page here. If you're eligible, Optus will SMS you a unique access code, which you'll then need to enter on-screen on the above page.
Once you've registered, you'll receive your very own promo URL link or code from Optus. Send it to family and friends switching to Optus, and each successful new account activation will earn you $50, and earn your friend that sweet 25% discount (with a maximum of three referrals per promo link).
Referring customers can expect to see their account credit by August 14, and no credit can be redeemed for cash or transferred to other Optus accounts. However, you can refer yourself and get both the $50 credit and 25% discount off your new plan: just activate a new postpaid service on your current account with your promo URL or code.
I've been referred! What do I do now?
If you're a new customer qualifying for your 25% off, you'll need to sign up via the referral URL online, or use your friend's unique promo code in store or over the phone. Your 25% discount applies only to monthly plan fees, so you'll have to pay full price for any handset repayments or extra charges, and is valid for your first 24 months of service (or until your change or cancel your Optus plan).
New Optus customers can select from the telco's SIM-only plans, or pick up a new handset on a 24-month lease or repayment option: available phones include the Samsung Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S8+, the iPhone 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus. Optus' My Plan Plus with phone repayment starts at $40 per month for just your plan (including the 25% discount), and includes unlimited talk and text and 1GB of data each month.
The Optus EOFY referral deal is available now, through to June 25, 2017. For more info on Optus' postpaid and prepaid plans, start comparing below.
