The Telstra Plus Rewards Store is now open and features a range of Hot Offers on devices and accessories.
What’s going on?
So, you might be new – that’s ok! Telstra Plus is our new rewards program which gives you the opportunity to earn points for discounts towards the latest devices and accessories, as well as access to discounted and pre-sale movie tickets, tier benefits such as entertainment rewards and VIP tech support, and more, simply for being a Telstra Plus member. Joining is easy at Telstra.com.au/plus. You just need to be 18+ with an active Telstra service.
We now have a Telstra Plus Rewards Store, which allows you to spend your accrued points on smartphones, tablets, watches, headphones, smart home products and other accessories. There’s even a drone available in the store, so you can take to the skies!
Our Rewards Store
We’ve recently launched our online Rewards Store allowing you to redeem those well-deserved T+ points. Launching in phases, it currently houses 50 products, which will quickly grow in the weeks and months to come.
Today, brands like Apple, Google, Samsung, Netgear and Amazon are all represented in the store, including flagship products.
Points can be redeemed to purchase products via the Rewards Store online. Purchasing products in the Rewards Store works in a couple of different ways:
- Points-only: Customers who have accrued enough points can purchase a product using points only. Easy.
- Points + Pay: If you spot something you like, but it’s a bit above your points balance, you needn’t worry. Customers have the option to purchase products using a combination of both points and a monetary amount. We will make available a variety of Points + Pay combinations from which you can choose. Points will be deducted from the member’s Telstra Plus account, and the pay component can be paid using MasterCard, VISA or AMEX if you’re redeeming on-line.
We’ve already got great handsets, accessories, Pre-Paid options and more available in the Rewards Store. Plus, we’ll be continuing to update the range with more of the latest devices and accessories.
Visit the Rewards Store today to see what’s available. For now, we’ve compiled a list of current hot offers that are already on the wish list:
