Prepaid Combo Refresh: More Data than Ever with 35 Days to Use It
We’ve listened, and we are shaking up the Prepaid Market! Prepaid can be complicated, so we want to keep it simple and give our customers the best value for money with simpler plans, more data than ever, more inclusions and more time to use it with our 35 day expiry on all $40+ plans. The future is exciting. Ready?
On the 6th September we are simplifying our prepaid plans by merging our Talk and Data Combo to create new Combo Plus plans that include both standard international calls (IDD) and Data. We are also increasing the base data inclusions and aligning Prepaid IDD minutes and zones to our Postpaid plans, covering 90 countries!
Score a Massive 17GB on our $40 Combo, and 30GB on our $50 Combo with an Extra Week to use it on all $40+ Combos.
What’s in it for me?
An easier sales conversation with clear and simple offers providing more data than ever. No one else is offering 35-day expiry, so we have a clear point of difference and less competitor comparison objections.
What’s in it for the customer?
More value for money and less wastage with only 10 recharges a year. Uncomplicated recharge options, which are the most competitive in the market, with both included international minutes and data.
What’s the soundbite?
-Huge data inclusions
-More IDD countries than ever before with Zone 1 & Zone 2 inclusions covering 90 countries
-Extra week of usage with 35 day expiry from $40, giving customers more time to use their inclusions
-Choice of expiry with 7 days, 14 days, 28 days and 35 days.
Phase out of Old Plans
With our new Prepaid Combo Plus plans, the following plans will be retired from market and no longer be available for new customers to connect to: Data Combo, Talk Combo, MyMix.
-Existing customers will be able to continue to recharge on MyMix and Data or Talk Combo
-Existing customers also have the option to recharge on our new Combo Plus plans
-Once exsisting customers have recharged on the new Combo Plus plan, they will not be able to return to recharging on MyMix, Data or Talk Combo.
We’ll be campaigning to customers via SMS and email promoting our new Prepaid Combo Plus plans.
