Product deals in the Black Friday sales are so common, they could veritably fall out of the sky. But a lesser known fact is that there are also some excellent deals going on phone plans.

Which carriers participate? The three majors – Vodafone, Optus and Telstra for starters, but there are also a number of other carriers in on the action. So who’s offering what? We dig into what’s on offer in 2021:


This year Telstra is giving customers the chance to save up to AU$600 on selected phones when bought with one of its Telstra Upfront Mobile plans. This deal ends November 29. 

Smartphones including the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G and Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, are two such handsets on sale for thrifty shoppers. Click on the links below to see the deals:

Telstra is also offering deals on two Samsung tablets when paired with a Telstra Upfront Data Plan. Click on the links below to access these deals:


Optus is also offering Black Friday deals on a range smartphones. Samsung devices feature prominently, but if you're looking for something fresh, you might want to consider the newly released Google Pixel 6 which Optus has marked down AU$150, or the iPhone 13 mini, which has been reduced by AU$300. These deals are available when combined with an Optus Choice Plus plan. You can access these deals in the links below:

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
