2022 Telstra Day Deals on Phones & Tablets, Smartwatch & Accessories: Get a FREE Xbox Series S with the Samsung Galaxy S22

Telstra Day is back in August – and to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the telecom company’s 24-hour sales event, Telstra is offering what may be its biggest offering yet.

Not only does Telstra save many dollars on the cost of select Samsung phones, tablets, and smartwatches, but it also throws in a free Xbox All Access bundle with every Samsung Galaxy S22 series purchase. This means that not only do you get a free Xbox Series S console, but you also get access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, online multiplayer, and a 24-month EA Play membership.

It’s a tremendous proposition for Telstra customers, and one that’s sure to draw the attention of gamers in need of a new smartphone. The deal will be open to new and existing Telstra customers for one day, so to speak: Thursday, August 4, from 1am to 12pm AEST.

Instructions on how to get a free Xbox with Telstra’s Samsung Galaxy S22 plans

This month’s Telstra Day Hero deal is without a doubt the telecom company’s Samsung Galaxy S22 deal, which includes a free Xbox Game Pass Ultimate bundle in a standard 24-month subscription. This bundle is worth a whopping $792 and is available with the Samsung Galaxy S22, Samsung Galaxy S22+ and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra (assuming you buy from Telstra and pair your phone with a Telstra Upfront cellular plan).

Regularly priced at $33 per month, Telstra’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate bundle includes the Xbox Series S console and wireless controller. You also get two years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which gives you access to over 100 Xbox titles, plus online multiplayer, an EA Play membership, and cloud gaming.

This is offered free for 24 months, after which you get a standard Game Pass subscription for $15.95 per month unless canceled. It’s an insanely decent offer for customers who need a phone upgrade, especially since the Samsung Galaxy S22 series are probably the best devices available on the market right now – but you have to meet the claim criteria to apply.

Get S22, S22+ or SS Ultra from Telstra and add one of Telstra’s three upfront SIM-only postpaid plans at checkout. At that point, you will then qualify for a $0 monthly Telstra Xbox All Access plan, which you can use for a full 24 months (regardless of whether you cancel your Telstra phone plan early). You must set up a Telstra ID online or in store to activate your Xbox account. However, you have until August 19, 2022 to redeem your free Xbox Series S.

Telstra offers the Samsung Galaxy S22 series with 12, 24, or 36-month gadget payment terms, or customers can maximally buy the phone directly from a Telstra store. You can ponder Telstra’s Samsung Galaxy S22 plans below.

Telstra Day deals for phones and tablets

In case you’re looking for a cheaper mid-to-high range Samsung phone, Telstra is also offering a discount on the Galaxy S21 FE 5G and Galaxy A53 5G when you add either device to a Telstra postpaid cellular plan. Again, these offers are accessible to customers who buy a phone through or maintain it with a 12, 24 or 36 month Telstra device plan.

  • Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G: save $300 (currently $699 for the 128GB model, $798.72 for the 256GB model)
  • Samsung Galaxy A53 5G: save $250 (currently $449 for the 128GB model)

Customers who purchase a plan will see their discount spread evenly across their 12, 24, or 36 month reimbursement. Assuming you end your Telstra cellular service early, however, you’ll have to take care of all the remaining balance on your phone with next to no discounts.

All handsets should be paired with one of Telstra’s three upfront postpaid SIM plans, which start at $58 a month for 40GB of full-speed data. Options also include 180GB for $68 per month and 300GB for $89 per month, and all plans come with additional unlimited data with limited speed capped at speeds of 1.5Mbps.

5G network access is also included, although maximum download speeds are capped at 250Mbps for the $58 basic plan. Plus, all plans come with unlimited standard domestic calls and texts within Australia, unlimited international SMS, and 30 minutes of standard international calls every month.

Telstra is now offering a month’s worth of Foxtel Now streaming on any postpaid plan, which is typically worth $25 a month. You can also claim a free month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate worth $15.95 per month.
