For a limited time, Kogan Mobile is offering 70 per cent off its 30-day prepaid mobile plans. Prices start at $8.95, which nets you unlimited standard calls, unlimited SMS/MMS and 3GB of data to use over 30 days. For an extra $2, you can also up the data allowance to 5GB. Not too shabby!
In typical huckster style, Kogan is capitalising on Telstra's massive network outage to promote its new prepaid data deal, as demonstrated in the below tweet:

Regardless of the cheeky delivery, this is a solid deal for anyone looking for a cheap month-to-month mobile plan with no lock-in contract. There are two plans to choose from: 3XL which comes with 3GB of data for $8.95 and 5XL which comes with 5GB of data for $10.95.
These plans were previously $29.90 and $36.90 per 30-day recharge, respectively. As mentioned, both come with unlimited talk and text.
New customers take note: you will need to buy a Kogan Mobile Sim starter pack for $4.90 to activate the plan. (On the plus side, Kogan is offering free shipping.) Data is limited to Vodafone's 3G Network, which may be a deal breaker for some.
The deal ends 5pm, 31 March, which basically means you get two recharges at the reduced price. Kogan has stipulated it may extend the offer beyond this 31 March. If not, you're free to take your business elsewhere as soon as the deal ends.
