Telstra+ rewards purchases.

Hello funbusters,

I wanted to buy a Google hub gizmo.  I had enough points to leave a residual of $36.  I had ample cash in my Telstra account to cover it as I pay extra into it each month.  

I asked if that was possible but no.  Must use a credit card.  At this juncture, I don't have one as it is being replaced.  

Maybe someone can sort out how to buy stuff with $$ in your own account.  Who knows?

Hi @not_a_fan_64 


With Telstra offering less and less voice phone support these are the type of things Telstra need to do to make it a better experience for the customer. More customer friendly across the board.


It's a good idea though.

Footnote: I dont work for Telstra, I just try to help out fellow Telstra customers.

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
