G’day, friends. Today’s best Aussie tech deals include discounted NBN plans, $120 off an iPhone SE, a cheap Lenovo laptop and much more!
$10/month off all NBN plans with Vodafone
Vodafone is offering $10 per month off all NBN plans for the first six months. You can save even more if you’re an existing Vodafone customer.
Vodafone will knock 5% off your total monthly bill for every postpaid service you have on your account after the first. The telco lets you do this up to a maximum discount of 20%, or five services total. So it’s a good deal for families.
You can leave at anytime — and we have written about why you should change NBN plans every six months before.
However, if you choose to bundle a modem with this deal (which gets you 4G backup) you’ll need to pay out a pro-rated fee if you leave within your first 36 months. The modem fee is equivalent to $5 multiplied by the number of months remaining in your three-year term. Alternatively, you could choose to not get a modem from Voda.
This offer runs until September 14.
40% off Western Digital SSD
Whether you’re a photographer or simply enjoy a portable SSD, you can get 40% off a 256GB Western Digital unit right now. That’s $60 off the RRP, bringing it down to just $89.
$120 off iPhone SE
If you’re after an incredible mid-range phone, Telstra is knocking $120 off the new iPhone SE plans.
This comes as a $10 per month credit applied monthly during your first year. So if you were looking at the 40GB plan with a 64GB iPhone SE, you’d pay $76.20 per month for your first 12 months, and then $86.20 for your remaining 12 months.
This phone is great and you can read our review here.

Cheap Samsung Note 20 plans
It’s all about Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Note 20 devices right now. If you don’t want to buy one outright, but are looking for a cheap plan, Woolworths Mobile has your back.
It’s also the only telco in Australia that has ever single Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra plan on offer.
Woolworth’s mobile is taking $250 off the repayment price on all its Samsung Galaxy Note 20 plans. It spreads the discount out across the life of the plan. But you have to get in quick, this offer is only available on re-order until Tuesday August 11. Yes, that’s tomorrow.
This ends up being $10.41 per month off on a 24-month repayment or a $6.94 per month off on a 36-month repayment. That’s pretty damn good.
The cheapest plan is the 4G handset on a 36-month plan. It comes to just $61.05 a month but only has 5GB included data. For just $5 more a month you can bump that up to 20GB data/month.
Thanks to Woolworth’s discount there are a few good options with decent data inclusions for under $100/month — even for the 5G variants. We recommend having a good look through the options.
The $99.08/month option for the Note 20 Ultra is quite good if you want a good chunk of data and the upgraded phone.
But if you really want 5G as an option our recommendation would be the Note 20 5G for $90.08/month which comes with 20GB data and only locks you in for two years, rather than three.
