You can expect to see a whole bunch of random sales announced as we approach the end of the financial year. Optus is taking its turn a little early and it’s good news if you’re on the hunt for a new device because it’s slashing the cost of some of the hottest handsets to be released in the last few years — including the Samsung S10 5G and Google Pixel 4.
The caveat is going to be signing up to a year or multi-year contract with Optus. Considering many of us are loyal to a good deal and not a specific telco, that might not really be an issue.
So, if you’re looking for a saving, here are the phones available and how much you’d be saving.
Samsung S10 5G 256GB
The Samsung S10 5G 256GB will be slashed by $851 if you sign up for a 24-month Optus contract. The minimum you will pay over that time for any of the options is $2,037.72. While it sounds like a lot, it’s palatable when it’s spread over a two-year period.
Check out your full range of options below.
