Happy Telstra Day, everyone.

The telco has resurfaced Telstra Day in 2022, with the idea basically being its own little Black Friday-like sale. You can score smartphones, tablets, speakers, smartwatches and accessories, kind of just depends what they feel like discounting.

Telstra Day comes around sporadically, and there’s also a caveat – each deal is only valid for the day. Here’s what they’ve got for tomorrow, Thursday, August 4, 2022.

Telstra Day August deals:

This month, Telstra is feeling generous. It’s offering up a bonus Xbox All Access bundle with any Samsung Galaxy S22 purchase.

Xbox All Access includes an Xbox Series S and 24 months of Game Pass Ultimate. This is valued at $792 and Telstra is slinging it for free (as long as you get a Samsung Galaxy S22 device). The Samsung Galaxy S22 series comprises the S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra.

Let’s dive into the deals. They’re open to new and existing Telstra customers, via the telco’s online store and in-store. The sale is on August 4, 2022.
