Everyday Mobile is the brand name that Woolworths uses for its mobile plan service, though these were originally marketed as “Woolworths Mobile” – strictly speaking its full name is “Everyday Mobile from Woolworths” if you want to be pedantic about it. Offering both prepaid and postpaid mobile SIM-only plans, Everyday Mobile sells itself on a value proposition around its pricing and the ability to score a discounted Woolies shop each month.

Everyday Mobile quick facts

  • Everyday Mobile operates on the Telstra Wholesale network, covering 98.8% of the Australian population.
  • Everyday Mobile offers a 10% discount on an in-store Woolworths shop once per month to its customers.
  • Everyday Mobile offers prepaid plans with 30 day expiry or slightly different prepaid long expiry options with either six or twelve months of coverage.
  • Everyday Mobile’s month-to-month postpaid plans include 5G access.

What are the different types of Everyday Mobile plans?

Everyday Mobile offers SIM-only plans on either a prepaid or postpaid basis. Back when it was Woolworths Mobile it also offered a select range of handsets, but it now operates as purely a SIM-only service, with either physical SIMs or eSIMs available for all plan types.

As you might expect, the price you’re willing to pay for a prepaid or postpaid Everyday Mobile SIM will determine how much data you get to use per month, as well as a few other telephony perks. 

Everyday Mobile prepaid plans and prices

Everyday Mobile’s Prepaid plans start from $25 per month, with all plans running for a 30 day expiry period. Data speeds on 4G are capped at 100Mbps down, with excess data costing $10/GB or $25/10GB. Excess data does not kick in automatically and must be purchased as an add-on. Unused data can be banked up to 500GB, and all plans include unlimited standard international calls to a range of 22 destinations.

For comparison, check out the daily updating list of prepaid plans below with at least 20GB of data.

Everyday Mobile long-expiry plans

Everyday Mobile’s Prepaid Long Expiry plans very much do what the name suggests; they’re prepaid plans with extended expiry periods, available from $100 with 180 day expiry or from $170 with 365 day expiry. Like its standard prepaid plans, data speeds are capped at 100Mbps on 4G, and excess data will cost you $10/1GB or $25/10GB, purchased as an add-on:

Everyday Mobile 5G SIM Only Plans

5G SIM Only is the branding that Everyday Mobile applies to its postpaid month-to-month SIM-only plans. If you’re a member of Woolworths Everyday Rewards Scheme, you get 10% of any plan price. All plans include unlimited standard national calls and texts, and the ability to bank unused data if you continue your plan past 30 days, up to 1,000GB. Plan pricing starts at $40/month ($36 with an Everyday Rewards card), with 4G and 5G access, though both are speed limited to 100Mbps.

What do you get with Everyday Mobile plans?

Everyday Mobile plan speeds

Everyday Mobile operates on the Telstra Wholesale network, with prepaid plans operating on 4G while postpaid plans get access to both 4G and 5G networks. In any case the distinction is arguably a little less relevant than with other providers, because both are speed limited to a maximum of 100Mbps down whether you’re on 4G or 5G. 

Everyday Mobile plan data

Everyday Mobile’s plans have variable data allowances, with the smallest plan offering 22GB of data – though on a pro-rata basis, some of its long expiry plans have less than that per month if you wanted to count it that way. Only one of its prepaid 30 day plans comes with more than the 35GB median Australian mobile allowance, though all of its 5G SIM-only plans do exceed that. 

If you go over your data quota on either prepaid or postpaid Everyday Mobile plans, data access stops for the rest of your billing period unless you purchase a data add on; either $10 for 1GB or $25 for 10GB of additional data. 

Everyday Mobile international calls

Whether or not international calls are included with your Everyday Mobile plan will depend on which plan type you’re using. For prepaid and 5G SIM only postpaid customers, you get unlimited standard international calls bundled in, though the 5G SIM only plans offer 8 more countries – 30 in total – than the prepaid plan’s allotment of 22. If you’re on a Prepaid Long Expiry plan, no international calls are included at all, though a range of add-ons do allow you to add either 60 calling minutes to 30 destinations for $7, or either $10 or $30 of call value for international usage at varying rates depending on the country you are trying to call.

Everyday Mobile plan features

The big hook for Everyday Mobile isn’t so much in its coverage or unique network offering – there are plenty of Telstra Wholesale MVNOs to choose from, frankly speaking – but from the unique discount structure it offers.

Firstly, if you’re on either a standard prepaid or a 5G SIM-only plan, you can score 10% off a Woolworths in-store shop per month, up to a maximum discount of $50 – or in other words, a shop up to $500 in a single transaction. If you regularly shop at Woolworths for your supermarket needs, it’s a compelling offer, because it’s effectively making the Everyday Mobile plan even cheaper each month, as long as you plan out your shops to ensure that you redeem the offer on your largest monthly shop. It would be rather wasted if you used it when you only had to go in to buy a bottle of milk, because your 10% would likely be worth less than 50c. Use it on a big weekly shop, especially if you have a family, and it could cover most or all of your monthly mobile bill!

Everyday Mobile coverage map

Everyday Mobile operates on the Telstra Wholesale network on 4G (all plans) and 5G (5G SIM only plans only) with claimed coverage of 98.5% of the population. That’s not the same as 98.5% of the land mass of Australia, but it does cover nearly everywhere that most people are likely to be. One small caveat here is that Telstra’s wholesale coverage map isn’t quite as wide as its own in-house network map, though you’ve typically got to be in very remote parts of Australia for that to be an issue. 

As with other Telstra MVNOs, Everyday Mobile will lose access to 3G network coverage in August 2024.

How to switch to Everyday Mobile

It’s a relatively straightforward process to switch from any one mobile provider to another in Australia. Follow these steps to make the switch to Everyday Mobile:

Browse the selection of Everyday Mobile plans available, then click the corresponding orange ‘Go to Site’ button (if available) next to the one you want. You’ll be taken directly to the Everyday Mobile plans page. 

Enter your details – including your address details and whether you’re an Everyday Rewards Member – on the Everyday Mobile signup page, and then click continue. Add in your payment details on the next screen, and then click Pay Now to confirm your order. 

Everyday Mobile should then send you an email detailing the next steps, including either eSIM details or when to expect your SIM card to arrive.

Does Everyday Mobile work internationally?

Yes; prepaid and postpaid plans include international calling minutes, and they can be added to long expiry prepaid plans if needed.
