The end of financial year sales are well underway, and Telstra has just released a heap of new deals on flagship phones from Apple, Google and Samsung, with up to AU$500 off.

The good news is that you don’t need to sign up to a Telstra mobile plan to take advantage of these offers either, as you’re able to buy any of the discounted devices outright. If you do want a plan though, you’ve always got the option of signing up.

On top of that, Telstra is also offering a free Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 tablet when you purchase any Galaxy S22 device, with the bonus tablet being valued at AU$529. There’s also discounted headphones, speakers, smartwatches and even NBN plans all up for grabs.

We’ve highlighted the best of what’s on offer below, but you can also browse the full range of Telstra’s EOFY 2022 deals if you want to explore what else is on offer.

Telstra EOFY deals 2022

iPhone 11 (64GB)AU$849AU$699

iPhone 11 (64GB) | AU$849 AU$699 (save AU$150)

We’ve seen some pretty big discounts on the iPhone 11 lately, but this is the cheapest outright price we’ve seen this year. The iPhone 11 came out in 2019, and there’s rumours it’ll be discontinued when the iPhone 14 is released, so consider snatching it up now at this bargain price. Available to buy outright or with a plan.

iPhone 12 (64GB)AU$1,199AU$899

iPhone 12 (64GB) | AU$1,199 AU$899 (save AU$300)

If you want something more recent, and you like its squared-off edges, consider nabbing the iPhone 12. Telstra has sliced AU$300 off the handset’s RRP, and you can buy it outright or on plan. It’s still an absolutely solid phone, takes great photos, and is 5G ready (unlike the iPhone 11 above).

When you purchase any Samsung Galaxy S22 series phone from Telstra, the telco is throwing in a bonus Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 tablet completely free. The Android tablet is valued at AU$549, and it has a 10.5-inch screen encased in a sleek design. Do note that you’ll need to redeem the offer through Samsung’s website after purchase.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 (256GB)AU$2,499AU$1,999

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 (256GB) | AU$2,499 AU$1,999 (save AU$500)

We think the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the best foldable phone to date, as it comes with stylus support, water-resistance and greater durability than its predecessor. Telstra has wiped AU$500 off the RRP of this handset, and you’re able to buy it outright or on a plan.

Google Pixel 6 (128GB)AU$999AU$849

Google Pixel 6 (128GB) | AU$999 AU$849 (save AU$150)

Google delivered a radically redesigned phone in the Pixel 6, and the result is a device that has excellent photo-taking abilities beyond what’s on offer from rival handsets. It’s got a vibrant 6.4-inch display, and it comes in some intriguing colours. It’s not the lowest we’ve seen (that was AU$799) but it’s pretty close to it. Available outright or on a plan. 

Google Pixel 6 Pro (128GB)AU$1,299AU$1,049

Google Pixel 6 Pro (128GB) | AU$1,299 AU$1,049 (save AU$250)

This flagship phone from Google is now AU$1,049 from Telstra, and while it’s not the cheapest we’ve seen (that was AU$999) this deal doesn’t require you to sign up to a phone plan as the earlier offer did. For the price, you’re getting a beautiful 6.7-inch screen and excellent camera capabilities. Buy outright or on a plan.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE (128GB)AU$999AU$799

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE (128GB) | AU$999 AU$799 (save AU$200)

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is essentially a pared-back version of the regular S21. It still comes with a vibrant display, capable cameras and plenty of processing power, just at a lower price point. This isn’t the cheapest price we’ve seen, but AU$200 is a decent 20% off. Available outright or on a plan.

Samsung Galaxy A53 (128GB)AU$699AU$549

Samsung Galaxy A53 (128GB) | AU$699 AU$549 (save AU$150)

The Galaxy A53 is one of Samsung’s budget phones, and now you can nab it for just AU$549. It’s got good cameras for the price, and a decent 6.5-inch screen, but Samsung’s had to cut corners to keep the price low. That’s resulted in a phone that’s slow to charge and slow to navigate, but if you can get past that it’s a good cheap phone.

Xbox Series S with Xbox All Access

Xbox Series S with Xbox All Access (save AU$120 when you stay connected for 24 months)

Xbox All Access is a way for you to get an Xbox console and pay it off over 24 months, plus get Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes access to over 100 games and online multiplayer. It usually costs AU$33 a month over 24 months, but Telstra is knocking AU$5 off the price each month, so you’ll pay AU$28 a month for 24 months. After those two years, you’ve paid off the console and it’s yours to keep.

Telstra NBN planssave AU$15p/m for 6 months

Telstra NBN plans | save AU$15p/m for 6 months

For every Telstra NBN plan (excluding NBN 25), you can save AU$15p/m for the first 6 months, taking a solid AU$90 off the plan over a half-year period. This means the NBN 50 plan starts at the same price as NBN 25 – just AU$80p/m – and for the speed demons among us, NBN 100, 250 and 1000 have the same savings.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 (44mm) | AU$549 AU$399 (save AU$150)

If you like the sounds of the above Classic but are looking to pay a little less, the standard Galaxy Watch 4 is also reduced. The main point of difference is the Classic’s integrated rotating bezel and distinct styling with stainless steel (as opposed to aluminium), so if you can forego that, then you can save a fair chunk. Available in the black and green 44mm configurations.
