Just over a month ago Telstra announced a flash sale for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini, where it knocked $100 off each handset. Optus followed suit last week with the exact same deal for the same iPhone 12 models. We’re seeing a bit of a trend emerging here, because it’s now Vodafone’s turn to take a bite of the apple.
Vodafone has announced that it will be knocking $100 off the price tag of both the standard iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini.
As an added bonus, Vodafone has discounted its entire range of SIM plans, offering a stack of data boosts for less – including a 500GB plan for only $60 per month.
Vodafone will also give you up to $200 in credit if you trade-in an eligible device when you sign up for one of Vodafone’s iPhone 12 plans and stay connected for 12, 24 or 36 months. To really sweeten the deal, Vodafone will also throw in a year of Apple TV+ for free (valued at $7.99 per month).
This iPhone 12 promotion is available until May 27.
How you can get a stack of extra data for less
The discounted iPhone 12 promotion is already pretty decent by itself, but Vodafone’s deals don’t end there. The telco is also providing extra mobile data while discounting its plans.
These monthly prices last for the life of your Vodafone plan when paired with a handset, or 12 months if you’re just grabbing the SIM. The data allowances, however, will last for the life of your plan.
If you’re looking for a plan with massive value, Vodafone’s Ultra Plan will give you a huge 500GB of data for only $60 per month. That’s over triple the data at half the usual monthly price.
If you combine this plan with an iPhone 12, you’ll be saving $60 every month. Even as just a SIM-only plan, saving $720 over a year is nothing to sneeze at.
If you really give your mobile data a workout via hotspotting, this is the plan you’ve been looking for.
If you don’t think you need that much data, or you’re looking for something cheaper, there are still some value options available.
Its 10GB Lite mobile plan has been bumped up to a massive 50GB, and you’ll only pay $35 per month instead of $40.
If you’re looking for even more data, the Lite+ plan is now $40/month for 60GB, instead of $45/month for 30GB. The Super plan is $45/month for 100GB, instead of $55/month for 60GB.
As a quick side note, these prices don’t include the handset cost for the iPhone 12 and Mini, and are just the monthly plan costs. When paired with a handset, the Lite+ plan will cost you $87.04/month if you pick up a 64GB iPhone 12 on a 24-month contract.
Which iPhone 12 model is better?
Are you keen on an iPhone 12, but aren’t sure whether you’re better off with the standard version or the Mini? For the most part, these two smartphones are very similar. The only major difference is that, due to its size, the iPhone 12 Mini has a smaller display and battery. So if you’re someone who likes a bigger screen and longer battery life, you might be better off with the standard version of the iPhone.
This deal also includes the recently released purple iPhone 12.
