Boxing Day is always a great time to bag yourself a bargain, and there’s no exceptions when it comes to phone and NBN plans. As luck would have it, a bunch of Aussie telcos have jumped the gun with their holiday discounts – and some of the deals are spectacular.

If you’re after a new smartphone, a new plan, or a new NBN provider, we’ve picked out of some of our favourite Christmas telco deals and offers.

Save $21 per month on Superloop NBN plans

Superloop is offering a $21 discount on its NBN 50 and NBN 100 plans if you sign up before the end of the year. This discount lasts for your first six months with Superloop, after which you’ll pay full price. Superloop’s plans are all contract-free, so you can leave at any time.

Save $648 on Galaxy S10 with Telstra

Telstra has cut the price of the 128GB Galaxy S10 by $648, which works out to be a saving of $27 per month over 24 months. That’s only $4 more per month than getting a Galaxy S9 on a comparable plan.

Prices start at $80 per month for a Galaxy S10 with 15GB of data on a 24-month repayment plan.

Save $20 per month on a Kogan NBN 100 plan

Kogan is offering a $20 per month discount on its NBN 100 plan, bringing it down from $85.90 per month to $65.90 per month. The discount lasts for your first six months with Kogan, after which you’ll pay full price. The plan is no contract, so you can cancel whenever. This offer runs until December 31.
