$100 Optus mobile recharge card for $30 @ Always on Sale

29 October 2008

$70 saving on a recharge card is not something I have seen before. So if you have an optus prepaid mobile and you talk a lot then grab one of these.
Down side is that you need to use the credit within 30d of activation

    Another option for Optus pre-paid customers is to buy a starter kit online (and activate it) for $29.95 and for a limited time they are offering $100 credit :)

    I wonder if this $100 recharge works the same as you buy in the shops? Depends on what Pre-Paid plan your on $100 recharge gives you heaps of credit. http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee236/lilpretzel/Buckscoop/optus.jpg

    what so its just like you pay $30.00 and get $100.00 of calls.. Better off getting from optus shop then
  • lilpretzel
    This is actually a $100 Optus Pre-Paid Recharge Card fairybelle, if you went into Optus they would charge you $100.00 ( Well that's what I think ) ;)
  • fairybelle
    so do you get to choose one of the options like the Turbo Cap etc Im confused?
  • lilpretzel
    That's what I was wondering fairybelle :confused: It looks like a normal recharge card but who really knows.
  • lilpretzel
    They also have a $250 recharge for Only $60

    Optus don't sell $250 recharges, do they? :eek:
  • nod
    you would need to make a lot of calls in 30 days that is for sure

    I'm on a prepaid option where credits last 60-days, so kinda unsure about this. Do let us know if someone purchases this.
  • golfwidow
    Great bargain. Im with optus on the Turbocharge and my credit lasts 30 days anyway :) Actually by the looks of it it is just $100 worth of credit for $30. No extra bits. I may be wrong though.
  • lilpretzel
    Well Golfy you grab one let us know please ;)
  • RodH
    sounds to me like this is just a $30 recharge that gives you $100 worth of credit I am already on Optus Turbocharge and get a smilar sort of though, with any $30 recharge I buy anywhere.. it's just like a cap..
  • admin EDITOR
    so rod with your optis option if you buy $30 you get $100 call credit ?
  • leny
    This is so simple you have started to confuse me as well. You pay the $30 and get a $100 recharge card, and then what extras you get is up to your plan. But it would be treated as a $100 card.
  • golfwidow
    Optus Turbocharge is $30 for $170 of credit :) I have this so I don't think i'll buy above as it's not as good as what I already get.

    Obviously, this one will only last the 30 days as advertised. It's like the 7 day $10 recharge card.
  • fairybelle
    so really its not really "special" then... its just like a regular $30.00 turbo cap thing

    Optus rates are pretty high, and the Internet will be roughly $25/MB from 1st November. So it wouldn't really take long to chew through it, if you tried. :) Looks like there's also a ]$15 = $50 credit option.

    Does anyone know whether the $100 is $100 "my credit" and you can use it on anything including premium sms calls?
  • snoozin99
    ok. I got one of the $30 recharges! Wish I hadn't of bothered now coz it is $30 my credit and $70 rev up money! So I can't use the $70 on premium sms calls. This is no better than what you can get directly from purchasing from Optus on the net....in fact, Optus is better coz I don't have to use it in 30 days. I don't think this is a completely honest sale coz it doesn't specify clearly what is included in the $100 credit etc. But then I should have run the customer service no. to clarify. Just thought you'd all like to know what's included in the credit.
  • fairybelle
    i think thats why i didnt purchase to begin with, i was a bit sketchy of the details
