Optus $40 plan promotion

Did anyone notice this?  Optus is selling 30gb SIM only plan for $40 on 12 months contract. But the details show 24 months contract. Am I missing any info here or you would consider it a misleading advertisement?

Re: Optus $40 plan promotion

I think it's a typo as they do say in the first sentence the maximum cost is 480 over 12 months. The CIS also confirms it's a 12 month plan.

Many thanks for your reply. I also thought it would be a type but didn't want to take the risk of getting into 24 months contract.

Re: Optus $40 plan promotion

Hey @Timer, out of interest where you'd find the add?

 

Was it a targeted promotion through the My Optus app? The pricing on our website appears to be correct. 

Let us know and we can on top of that.

It was on my phone app. I wanted to take the offer but then found it shows 24 months although the promotion says 12 months for both new and re-contracting customers.

Re: Optus $40 plan promotion

Ah, right, Thanks for that. It's definitely a typo. If it hasn't been changed already, I'll get the devs on the case. 

The minimum total cost over 12 months on the $40.00 plan is $480.00

 

You can find everything you need to know by click the link @Yeldarb has sent through.

Shout out if you have any other questions.

Re: Optus $40 plan promotion

Can I ask how you found out about this promo? My 12m contract ended on the 18th but I saw no email or notifications about this promo. I then get a text today from Optus to tell me I'm losing my bonus 2GB that I had so I'm back to 10GB (which is shared) but I am now too late to switch to this offer. I have the app and notifcations are turned on. Would've been nice to know about this plan option sooner.

Re: Optus $40 plan promotion

I found it on my Optus phone app. I browse this app every now and then to see the new offers. But I didn't buy it as it was confusing, having both 12M and 24M written in the same ad.
