Just received:

Skinny Mobile today announced its new $9 Starter Monthly Combo – New Zealand’s best value $9 Monthly Prepay Combo on the market.

The new Starter Combo is the only NZ prepay $9 Monthly Combo in the market offering data and unlimited text.  The Monthly Combo includes 30 NZ minutes, unlimited texts and 100 MB data.

“As the name implies, the Starter Combo is a great Monthly Combo for those starting out, like first time smartphone users, who want to stay connected with friends and family and are discovering how easy it is to post updates and get info on the go,” says Ross Parker, General Manager of Skinny Mobile.

“It’s also suitable for people who want a Combo with minutes, text and data and want to spend less than $10 a month.”

The launch of the Starter Combo follows Skinny’s announcement last week of Rollover Data on its $16, $26 and $40 Monthly Combos, and the drop in its NZ standard prepay rates cost per minute and cost per megabyte to just 20 cents late last year; 50 per cent lower than 2Degrees standard NZ prepay calling and data rates.

Skinny’s $9 Starter Combo is available now.

Looks good - just put my wife onto that plan, just $1 more, and a big step up from the $8 unlimited TXT's only plan. :)

Does anyone know if the 30 day and 7 day add-ons are available for this $9 starter plan?
The website doesn't show the $9 plan on the add-on page:
