@ashliem Kudo's to Telstra, this (to me) is a step in the right direction. 


The amount of posts I have seen over the years of people complaining of no loyalty program for its customers, well, it's been ALOT :-)


So it's great to see that is changing. Time will tell if its actually worth it though as we see poor loyalty programs with Woolworths Rewards, and Flybuys (Although that improved a little when joining up to eBay). Funny thing is though, banks who make the biggest profits offer some of the worse reward programs in the country.


One thing I am not sure on, if I have two account can I combine the points when I need, or is this a push to move all accounts to the one account?

We have two accounts in two names and from what I read in the full terms you can register multiple billing accounts to the same account by linking the Telstra ids linked to it. It encourages sharing an account as a family.

@DrQ Trouble with the whole Telstra ID# thing is it discriminates against pensioners/seniors who has never had to worry about a Telstra ID# before, let alone has a computer to register one. There needs to be a support number associated with all this for those people.

“We value all our customers”... except, obviously, small business customers given we are ditching them from the programme.


Don’t offer that “stay tuned” nonsense - at least treat us equally until you have whatever alternative it may be available.

Big fail Telstra, I logged in to sign up for this and I see my confirmation email was sent to my Bigpond junk mail, which is super annoying because I normally just use Outlook to check my emails but once a week I have to log into Telstra webmail to check everything it sends to junk and it doesnt matter how many times I mark things as not spam it still sends these emails to junk. I would think an email from Telstra shouldnt be going to junk mail......hmmmmmm

As a Telstra Plus Silver tier customer, I have been granted a $75 Telstra TV Box Office credit. When I try to redeem the credit I get this message "Sorry, Unfortunately, you have no offers associated with your Telstra ID.".


What's going on?

Hi KenWright, I trust this offered credit will be applied for you soon. While we can't access accounts via posts on these forums, our Box Office support teams on 1800 502 502 can investigate and help further.
