Flicked through mailers from The Warehouse yesterday and found this:



Doesn't say how though.

Can't seem to find it on Spark's website. Or whether it's a one-off thing (e.g. with a $5 SIM) or only at The Warehouse (strange)?


Any ideas?




Find me on Twitter!

A couple of months ago The Warehouse had exclusive deals for Skinny credit (one was $50 for $30), so the company's done this kind of thing before. Similarly that time I couldn't find anything on the Skinny site, but they confirmed it was only available at TWH.

It'll be for a SIM pack with $29 value pack included.

It says at the bottom of the picture you posted: "Valid for 1 month only"

Could you buy a whole heap of these, and just keep changing sims at the end of every month?

Edit: I see it says one per customer, but I guess someone could keep going in to buy more.

Wouldn't the inconvenience of having a different phone number every month outweigh the savings? Unless you just use it for data I guess..

Yes mainly for data, I hardly ever use mine for actually calling. And you can still phone out anyway. You could have another phone for just incoming calls. Actually I wonder if you can move the number, as you can move the number between providers. Possibly the time and effort wouldn't; be worth it.

Might be worth doing if you have a dual sim compatible phone. That would simplify the process substantially.
