Telstra Xbox All Access deals in short

  • Telstra is offering Xbox + Game Pass bundles from $34/mth
  • Over two years, you can save up to $90 off RRP
  • Preorders available now
Xbox Series X and S

As expected, Xbox Series X and Series S preorders sold out in record time when they went live this morning. However, there is still one way you can be one of the first to get your hands on Microsoft’s next-gen console, and even save some cash in the process - Xbox All Access.

We buy our phones and tablets on plans, and now Telstra wants us to do the same with our gaming consoles, bundling them with mobile or broadband plans. The 24-month ‘Xbox All Access’ payment plans include your chosen console, as well as access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Microsoft’s subscription-based game service. Titles include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Sea of Thieves, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and just about every EA game you could want.

Surprisingly, while Telstra tends to fall on the more expensive side of the spectrum when it comes to mobile and internet plans, their Xbox All Access deals are actually really reasonable.

You can nab the Xbox Series S for just $34 per month, totalling $792 over 24 months, or the Xbox Series X for $46 per month, totalling $1,104 over the two-year period. To put this into context, the Series S would normally set you back $499 and the Series X $749. Adding in two years’ worth of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate ($382.20 in total), you’re getting $881.20 worth of value for $792 in the case of the Series S and $1,131.20 for $1,104 in the case of the Series X.
