Optus pays your cancellation fees

Font Size:

With the new iPhone 6 being released last week, lots of people are getting ready to bite the bullet and pay early cancellation fees to get out of their current contracts, however there may be a better solution.

Optus has just announced a limited time offer, vowing to pay up to $200 of competitors’ early cancellation fees if you cancel your plan and swap to an Optus 24-month plan. On top of this, Optus will also pay you up to $250 for your current handset, depending on its condition.

This is a bold move to try and take customers away from their competitors, but if your plan has a few months left and you can’t wait to get the new iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy S5, why not take advantage?

This deal ends November 2nd 2014, and Optus will pay you in the form of mobile credit, so you’ll still have to pay your phone provider, but Optus will reimburse you.

For more information, as well as a list of available smartphones and plans visit Optus.com.au.

    Great ,If You like taking something back to a shop and getting a Credit Note for something else in the Store !!..Finding the Money to pay out a Ridiculous Contract is not in My Book ??..
    I’ll wait !!.. And by waiting I will get a Smarter Object(Perhaps) than that on offer as Obsoleting gadgets is the game now ..
    Pensioner… Well that’s the way I read it anyhow ??

      I agree. Make sure you get something which can be upgraded.
      New models to an existing brand loyal customer base. That’s the name of the game.
      Anyway, what does it matter?
      The sophisticated sales strategies of today, coupled with the Australian consumer market being relatively unsophisticated will ensure survival of capitalism.
      We are at their mercy. They will find out why we purchased our last phone and use the information to squeeze more out of us.

I notice they have a Forum Section which is probably Packed with Whingers Worse than Telstra !! And if anyone is bored and needs a Good laugh and is Broad Minded go and look at Telstra Complaints Blogs !! And I thought some on this Site could whinge ?? We are in Kindergarten !!
