But that is the problem @Esther we can't get the best deal available because we are already customers Smiley Sad. Currently the best deal available is the 25% family and friends discount

That offer has finished on March 31 nero and I apologise if you feel you're not being appreciated as a customer - the phone cost are exactly the same for new or existing customers. If you've got more than product with us, you might be able to receive our $20 bundle discount on eligible home phone bundles. We also still offer our 10% uni student discount for eligible customers.

Have you checked your spam/junk mail filter in case it ended up in there?

I totally agree with those who feel they deserve the family and friends discount.   I have been a loyal Optus customer for more than 20 years. I am currently out of contract for one phone and the other will finish next month.  Optus, I think you should reconsider who you value most.

I agree with all the comments on here about not offering existing customers the same deal as new custormers. Obviously, Optus arent really interested in retaining Customers, which is very short-sighted. I am existing Customer and am now waiting to see what the other telcos pricing will be for this very reason.If Optus are not prepared to show loyalty to their existing customers, why should I show loyalty to Optus?

Virgin $77 for 4 GB data, Optus $84 for 3.5GB

Virgin $86 for 11 GB, Optus $94 for 10 GB

etc

 

Looks like not only are optus not treating their existing Customers with respect, they are also pricing higher than competitors.
