Optus Offers More Data, But There’s a Twist

 
 

Optus launched Optus Xtra – an app which enables Android users to earn extra data or credit by viewing ads on their smartphone. The app gives prepaid customers the option to earn 1GB of extra data on eligible monthly plans, or $2 of extra credit on daily plans every 28 days by having ads on their phone’s locked screen.

 
 
 

Optus Xtra displays static ads on the locked screen of a customer’s mobile phone and users can view a video version of the ad or visit the brand’s website. Customers can unlock their phone as usual when an ad is displayed on their phone screen. Moreover, Optus Mobile users can customise the ads they receive by nominating their interests across eight categories – beauty, employment, fashion, government and politics, health, money, technology, and travel. The Optus Xtra app is free and you can download it from the Google Play store.

But what are the rewards? Well, extra data or credit is applied when a customer with an Android handset on an eligible prepaid plan has had the Optus Xtra app active for 28 days, and has an active prepaid account balance. Customers on My Prepaid Ultimate, My Prepaid Ultra Plus and My Prepaid Ultra are eligible to earn 1GB extra data every 28 days. Customers on My Prepaid Daily Plus and $2 Days 4G Ready are eligible to earn $2 extra credit every 28 days.

However, be advised that viewing the ads can also use up your data allowance. When customers view ads on their lock screen (without tapping on the ad) it may use up to 20MB of data per month. So you might want to click them only when you’re on Wi-Fi.
