  • Just a quick one on the JB HiFi Samsung S9 deal (grabbed it 3 weeks ago when it was around), you sign on for Telstras $60 plan, with 15 Gb of data.

    JB has their own bonuses, which drop the cost $10/month, and add 10 Gb of data to change it to the deal you get. Confirmed earlier this week that its for the life of the plan, and not some 12 month bait and switch.

    If you’re in the market for a new phone (as I was), I haven’t seen anything that gets close to that combo.

    • So $50 for 25GB of data? Damn that is nice. Pity I still have nearly 12 months left on my current plan 🙁

      eBay is once again offering 20% off selected tech products

      As always people need to check out competing stores before buying one of these specials. I was looking at RAM and a couple other PC components and the Ebay stores are inflating they regular price before the discount is applied. When you take the discount off it’s basically the same price as getting it at Umart or MSY. On one item it was $3 more expensive, on another it was $3 cheaper.

      I’m sure you can get the odd bargain that saves decent money (ie: more than a couple dollars) just make sure you check some other prices and don’t get sucked into the “OOH 20% off, must be a bargain” mindset.

      • Yup, $50 for 25 Gb, unlimited calls and SMS’s. Old Virgin plan was $60 for 6 Gb combined with $20 off and +4 Gb offers. With rolling over, I usually had 16-18 Gb available at the start of a month. Functionally similar costs in the end, the $10 more is worth it for the phone.

        My main reason for getting the S9 though was that I needed a new phone. Old M8 had a non-responsive strip across its face, right where allow/deny was, so couldn’t update anything.

        I like to buy outright, with $700 being my line in the sand – cant justify spending $1200+ on a phone. Usually means I get last years model, something I’m content with. So having a current flagship model is a bit of a novelty for me 🙂

        • I’m assuming the deal requires you to buy the new phone? If I could switch to it while keeping my existing handset I’d consider the early exit fees (I’m paying $60 for only 6GB) but if I had to buy a new handset it’s not worth it unless I could sell my current S8+ to someone.

          Yeah I prefer to buy outright too. But when I looked at my habits a few years back I realised even when I bought outright I didn’t bother looking around to change plans and I held onto the phone pretty much till it died each time (2 -4 years) so what the hell – back on a contract.

          • Yeah, $700 up front, gotta port a sim into a new Telstra account. So there are some conditions. The $700 would be the kicker for most, but overall it was just worth it, at least for me.

            I was in the market, the price point was right where I wanted, and the contract really didn’t change over what I was paying now. Extra $120 over 12 months isn’t a biggie. Due date for payment is even roughly the same.

            And like you, I hold a phone until it dies. I expect 5 years out of this one, 3 years out of the HTC M8 was a little disappointing. Depending on which S8 you had, it looks like you’d get about $350 from a hock shop like CEX (thats for most of the 64 Gb’s), covering half that upfront cost.

          • Yeah I wouldn’t bother for that. There’s not enough upgrade to the S9+ to justify that. Not with the extra cost of getting out of my current contract. Maybe if I could squeeze out 3/4 of the price.

            I only expect 2 years from a phone but hope for more. Depending on the handset of course,. Some of the quality brands/models I’d want longer. Cheapies, well if they last their warranty I’d be happy.

          • Makes sense. I wouldn’t recommend upgrading from last years model anyway, for the reasons you list.

            But when you are ready, keep half an eye on JB anyway. They’re officially a Telstra branch, but have their own layers of offers on top, which often make the usual Telstra prices acceptable.

            Was just laying them out in the first story, while not really getting into the fine detail. $500 saving on a $1200 phone is a massive cost cut (~40% off for a 2 month old flagship), the rest was gravy but was what sealed the deal.

            I’m not sure I would have grabbed it if it had still been $60/month as that would have killed half that up front saving.

          • Yeah definitely. I wasn’t aware they offered extra saving on top of the Telstra ones so that’s a definite must watch (in about 12 months time).

          • @skrybe fun fact: I got home last night, checked my email, and the base Telstra offer was available by itself. $49 for 25 Gb, unlimited texts and calls. And there it was, on JB’s page, tucked away under phones –> Telstra hero offers, or something like that.

            I fell dirty pimping Telstra.

          • Ooh thats interesting. I’ll have to take a closer look at that.

            I know what you mean. I’m not a fan of Telstra, but lets face it, they do have the best network for coverage whether we like it or not. And if the price & features are good, well I’d consider them.
