Telstra is running a flash sale on selected Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra plans. Until Sunday, the 21st of February, you can get $480 off the overall price of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra when you add it to an eligible month-to-month SIM plan and stay connected for at least 12 months. That brings the total cost of the 128GB model down to $1,368 (from $1,848) and the 256GB model down to $1,464 from $1,944.

Alongside that deal, Telstra is running a discount on its huge 180GB XL plan. Until Monday the 1st of March, customers who sign up to the Telstra XL plan can save $50 per month on their bill (total of $600 credit) when they stay connected for at least 12 months.

Lastly, if your old Samsung is in good nick, you might be eligible for a $600 trade-in credit. $600 is the most you can get for a Samsung trade-in, and the value will be determined based on your current Samsung model and a device assessment. For example, if your current Samsung is a few years older and a little damaged, the value of the trade-in will be lower. Still, worth checking it out if you no longer have any use for your old Samsung smartphone.

If you sign up for a Telstra Mobile XL plan with a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, that’s a minimum of $1080 in savings and a potential $1680 off over the life of your plan if you’ve got an eligible Samsung to trade-in.

Here are all the official details of Telstra’s flash sale and concurrent discounts:

Get up to $480 off when you add a Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G to an eligible month-to-month mobile plan and stay connected for 12 or 24 months. If you cancel your Device Payment Contract, you will lose your discount and must pay the balance of any remaining device repayments. Offer ends 11:59 pm Feb 21.

Samsung Trade-in Offer: Trade-in an eligible Samsung device and get up to $600 bill credit. Offer ends 1 March 2021. Subject to device model and assessment. Credit applied within 2 bill cycles. $600 credit based on Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G 512GB.

Bonus Telstra Plus Points: Enjoy a bonus 20,000 Telstra Plus points when you add a 5G mobile device to a Medium and above month-to-month data plan by 29 March 2021 and join the rewards program, Telstra Plus, within 30 days.

5G network access included on Medium and above postpaid mobile plans. To access the Telstra 5G network, you'll need a 5G compatible device in a 5G coverage area.
