Rewarding businesses for their loyalty

By Michael Ackland February 25, 2020

For over 100 years, we’ve been helping Australian small businesses connect and thrive. We’ve helped connect them to opportunity and worked side-by-side to create new ways to engage with customers. As we have stuck by small business, they too have stuck by us, and I’m excited to launch a new way to thank them for that loyalty with our new Telstra Plus program for SMBs.

Last year, we opened up our Telstra Plus loyalty program to consumer customers. At the time, our CEO, Andy Penn, recognised that Australians now have more choice than ever when it comes to their telco provider.

Since then, 22 billion points have been earned by our customers, and everyone is telling us how much they love redeeming them for the latest tech, movie and concert tickets. That’s why we want to reward the millions who continue to choose Telstra, especially when it comes to our small and medium business customers.

Telstra Plus for SMBs builds on what makes the program great, giving small business customers the same opportunities to earn points on every dollar they spend toward their monthly Telstra bill to put towards the latest technology and experiences. That’s our way of showing appreciation for your business and rewarding you for loyalty over time.

Furthermore, Business tier customers are eligible for VIP support by way of receiving three months of Telstra Business Tech Service on us, as well as access to discounted movie, concerts, sport and art tickets as well as priority pre-sale tickets.

And to add a sweetener, Telstra small business customers who sign up to be a member of Telstra Plus between 25 February and 9 April 2020 will nab 10,000 bonus points.

Along with the new, expanded Telstra Plus program, we’ve also launched our Telstra Business Services initiative. It’s all part of our major revamp to provide businesses with the end-to-end tools and services they need to thrive.

And our Telstra Plus million points winner is…

By Graeme Crozier November 7, 2019

We recently welcomed our millionth Telstra Plus member to the family, just over six months after we launched our new rewards program for Telstra customers. To mark the occasion, we gave away an amazing prize for that lucky member – and now we can reveal who took it home!

Luke G. from Brisbane is our lucky millionth Telstra Plus customer!

It was a stroke of luck that saw Luke walk into our Indooroopilly Telstra Store at just the right time to be the millionth sign-up for Telstra Plus, but as a long time Telstra customer we think this is a perfect opportunity to reward Luke for his loyalty. He wins one million Telstra Plus points to spend on whatever he’d like from our Rewards Store, two exclusive 365-day movie passes, and 12 months of access to music and sport events.

The in-store customer service team member that helped Luke sign up, Angie, has been part of the Telstra team at our Indooroopilly store for 18 months. Angie will also receive one million points for signing up the millionth member, plus an event to celebrate with her team.

Telstra Plus is part of our strategy to radically simplify our products and services and improve the experiences we offer to our customers, so it’s around to stay – and you earn points simply for paying your bill, so reward yourself and join.

We’ve also got some more exciting competitions on the way exclusively for our Telstra Plus members, so you should sign up – if you haven’t already – for a chance to be in the draw.

We know that Australians have more choice than ever when it comes to their telco provider, and millions of our customers choose us for their connectivity, technology and entertainment. We designed Telstra Plus to give you more, whether that’s by redeeming T+ points to put towards smartphones, tablets, headphones and other gadgets and accessories, or through access to discounted movie, sports and concert tickets and other great benefits.

Visit Telstra Plus to see how to become a Telstra Plus member and check out the diverse range of products already available. We’re regularly adding more devices (and more special offers) to our Rewards Store, and we’ll expand Telstra Plus even further in the coming months. The team is working on many more exciting developments, so stay tuned!

One million Telstra Plus members, and one very lucky winner

By Michael Ackland October 11, 2019

We’re getting ready to welcome our millionth Telstra Plus member – a massive undertaking since we launched our brand new loyalty program in May of this year. To celebrate the runaway success of our loyalty program in the last six months, we’re giving one lucky new member a prize worth over $20,000.

Telstra Plus is our loyalty program for Telstra customers, where your normal monthly spend on your Telstra account gives you points to spend at our Rewards Store, with deals and discounts on the latest technology and accessories. We want to reward you for your loyalty, and to say thank you for being a Telstra customer.

We’ve been blown away by the speed at which we’ve reached almost a million Telstra Plus members, but we haven’t been standing still while it happened. In that time we’ve launched our new no lock-in contract mobile plans, given over a million mobile customers extra data at no charge, continued to lead the way on 5G, and added more products to the Telstra Plus Rewards Store.

Telstra Plus has had some huge milestones along its way to a million members. We were off to a cracking start with over 500,000 enrolments in the first 60 days, and it hasn’t taken us much longer to reach near the million mark. We’ve been excited to see how you’ve been spending your points on our Rewards Store, with thousands of smartphones, tablets, headphones and other gadgets redeemed so far.

We launched Telstra Plus to reward you for your loyalty, and it already has some very loyal members. We’re incredibly proud of our heritage and long history as Australia’s leading telecommunications company, and we’re incredibly grateful for your continued support.

To commemorate this upcoming special occasion, our millionth Telstra Plus member is in for a treat.

The lucky winner will receive:

  • 1 Million points to spend on whatever rewards they like in the Rewards Store
  • Plus their picks from across the Rewards Store
  • 12 months of access to music and sport events
  • 2 exclusive 365-day movie passes

If you’re not already a member, simply visit the Telstra Plus page to join and start earning points.

We launched Telstra Plus this year as part of our T22 strategy to radically simplify our products and services and to put customers first. You’ve always been able to benefit from the best network and the greatest new technology, but with Telstra Plus, being a customer is even more rewarding. We’ve been delighted at your interest in our rewards program in its first six months, and we’re excited to continue to expand it in the coming months and years.

Telstra Locator Tags and Accessories

Telstra Locator was designed and built in Australia to help you find what matters most, by attaching a Telstra Locator Tag to your things and using the app to help find them.

Ring your tag when it’s near to find where it’s hiding, or use the map to find things that are far away. So far, it has been used to find phones, bikes, keys and even dogs who have run away from home during thunderstorms.

If your keys fall out of your bag, if your phone is dropped on a bus, or your dog runs away at the first sign of thunder, the Telstra Locator App will give you an approx. last known location, to help you find your things again.

Telstra Locator is $10/mth on a month-to-month basis – meaning you can cancel any time without any fees. Data charges may apply to use the Telstra Locator app. When you subscribe to Telstra Locator for the first time, you’ll receive a free Starter Kit which includes 2x Bluetooth Tags and 1x Wi-Fi Tag.

You can redeem your Telstra Plus points for a few different Telstra Locator products on the redemption store, including the Wi-Fi Tag for 20,000 points, the Pet Collar Attachment for 5000 points or the Universal Mount Accessory (to attach a Wi-Fi Tag to bikes and other valuables) for 8000 points.
