You can get a Samsung Galaxy S21 for (almost) half price right now

Half-price off a premium Samsung phone? Not bad.

Despite Aussie retailers best efforts, Black Friday has never really taken off here in Australia. Wedged between Click Frenzy and the silly season, there’s simply not much room for America’s dedicated day of deals, discounts and utter carnage Down Under. So the discounts end up being fairly tame, like a little appetiser for the banquet of bargains to come on Boxing Day.

However, Christmas has come early this year at Vodafone where you can score almost 50% off this year’s flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 5G if you sign up to a 12, 24 or 36-month plan. That’s $600.12 off the total handset cost (which is usually $1,248.84 over the life of your plan), effectively bringing the cost of the handset down to $648.72 (paid off over your chosen plan period - either 24 or 36 months).

As always, you also need to factor in the monthly price of the plan itself. At Vodafone, the cheapest available phone plan is $40 for 80GB per month. That gets you ‘Infinite data,’ which caps your speed at 2Mbps when you go over your data (rather than charging excess data fees, the usual unlimited calls and texts to standard Australian numbers, an additional 100 standard international minutes (for calls to Zone 1 countries) and a few extra perks like three months of Amazon Music Unlimited.

That’s not all, though. Vodafone also has $600.12 off the beefier Samsung Galaxy 21 Ultra, $400.32 off the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro, $500.04 off the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and $200.16 off the Motorola Moto G50 5G.
