The cheapskates prepay annual christmas wars have begun.

jUst got 1gb data with $16 (along with all the AU minutes and sms) by cancelling the prepay that has ran out of data and re-buying the $16 combo.

Let the wars begin!

It's a repackaged version where you don't have to join skinny ie for existing members

Grrr - my combo just rolled over yesterday so I missed that.

 

Skinny did give me 100 free mins to use this month and while I don't want to seem ungrateful I now have nearly 600 minutes free. LOL

 

 

 

I'll set it up for next month. I assume you didn't lose your free minutes - I want to reach 1000....

Not blaming you - I never looked. Anyway the Gigaspam was for #gigatowndun and I was doing the same so good work on your priority queue...

I got a text on the 23rd of october saying

 

"Thanks for being an awesome Skinny customer! We are giving you 500mb of bonus data each time your Big Value Combo next renews from today until 20 Jan 15"

My combo renews in 3 days.

I believe this offer was selective, as in I don't think everyone got it. They were giving different things to different people like minutes etc. But I think there still may be more Xmas offers to come

Hmm ... How interesting!

Will it will take one Telco to stir the pot and throw in the 1gb on their lowest prepay and everyone will follow

joker97: It's a repackaged version where you don't have to join skinny ie for existing members

But it does require cancelling your combo and renewing it? Or will it just auto activate on the next renew of a current combo?

No need to cancel anything. I was out of data so I couldn't wait for renewal.
