Re: Prepaid sim

Hi Lummy43,

 

You can purchase a Telstra Pre-Paid SIM with cash or a Debit EFTPOS card from a Telstra store, Post Office or Supermarket like Coles and Woolworths. 

 

You can also purchase Recharge Voucher's with cash or a Debit EFTPOS card at all of the above places.

In Coles and Woolworths you can ask for a Telstra Pre-Paid voucher at the service desk, when you get served at a checkout or if you use the self-serve checkout. 

I am NOT a Telstra employee and never have been. However, I AM a customer who volunteer's my time in the hope to help someone with their question.

Re: Prepaid sim

Do you mean you don't want him to have to use a credit or debit card, or Paypal to top up? or to not need that to buy it in the first place?

Hi @Lummy43,

 

You're welcome Smiley Happy

 

I'm actually a Telstra Pre-Paid customer myself Smiley Wink

 

I never use a credit card, paypal or direct debit for recharging my services.

I only buy recharge vouchers....usually from Coles or Woolworths. 

Here's a tip: keep an eye on the Coles catalogue (you might have to look at it online...where I live, Coles has stopped having them put in the letterbox).

Sometimes they have 10% off Telstra Pre-Paid recharge's. 

I was lucky, about 7 months ago they had the $150 recharge out for $100 (save $50). This equates to $16.67 per month for 6 months use...I bought 3.Smiley Wink
