Boost Mobile now offering refurbished smartphones with its pre-paid mobile plans

0

Boost Mobile has always offered great value pre-paid mobile plans but now they are also offering customers refurbished smartphones to go along with their updated Anytime Plus plans.

The company has partnered with leading refurbished device seller Alegre to supply Boost with smartphones to offer to its customers.

Customers who choose a refurbished phone will receive a free $30 Boost Mobile Prepaid SIM to use on the Telstra network.

These phones go through an extensive 72-point check and also include a 12-month warranty they’re just like new.

Customers can purchase a refurbished iPhone for as little as $249 and a Samsung Galaxy phone from $339.

The range of devices include iPhone SE to iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S7 all the way up to Galaxy S9+ and the Google Pixel 2.

Research commissioned by Boost Mobile shows that 74 per cent of young Australians would consider purchasing a refurbished phone that was in good condition.

This has led to the growth of the second-hand smartphone market.

Another factor leading to this increase is the rising cost of new flagship devices that force customers to look for a better deal.

“We have seen an exponential rise in the interest and acceptance of refurbished phones over the last few years, as people realise the high calibre of phones on offer that have gone through rigorous testing and cleaning,” said Russell Lornie, Alegre.

“There are also a growing number of consumers actively seeking out refurbished phones with a view to having access to the latest technology while playing their own part in trying to minimise their personal e-waste.”

Peter Adderton, Founder, Boost Mobile said: “For 18 years Boost Mobile has been connecting Australians, seeking to find the best value for our customers, and giving them more choice.

“Refurbs are a great option for consumers who are looking for a great smartphone at a fraction of the price.

“You can now come to boost.com.au and bundle 12 months’ worth of connectivity on Australia’s biggest mobile network , with loads of data alongside a great quality refurb smartphone.  With the added benefit of ZipPay you can pay this off for a little as $10 per week.

“Through Boost Mobile, you can have the peace of mind that the phones are coming from a trusted source, 100 per cent Australian compliant, includes a 30 day satisfaction guarantee, 12 month warranty, and has been put through its paces with rigorous testing.

“Throw in a free $30 SIM and access to Australia’ s biggest mobile network, free delivery, and it’s a compelling offer, too good to refuse.”

Boost Anytime plans run for 28 days and start at just $10 a month for 3GB of data and go all the way up to $70 for a massive 65GB data.

New and migrating customers on the $30 plans and above will also receive a bonus 15GB data on the first three recharges.

New Boost Anytime add-ons include 1GB for just $5 or $15 for 3GB data or to use for pay as you go rates and calls to overseas numbers.
