Joining Telstra is not just about the service you sign up for. It’s also about the exclusive rewards and perks that go with it. The launch of the new rewards program, Telstra Plus, will bring in greater benefits to make your stay with Telstra more worthwhile.
This year is an exciting time for Telstra customers. With the new Telstra Plus, it’ll be easier to earn points, and up to thousands of them, if you join today. The more points you score, the more exciting rewards will be. They can be redeemed online through the soon-to-be available Telstra Plus Rewards Store. Aside from scoring points, there’ll also be benefits exclusive to Telstra Plus members.
Telstra Plus Rewards
Telstra’s new rewards program aims to improve customer experience with the chance to earn points and benefits by just simply being connected to Telstra’ network. It is designed for personal customers, however, there may be another rewards program exclusive to business customers in the future.
Starting May 14, you can earn 10 points per dollar on every bill or recharge. You can then use these points to redeem the hottest devices or accessories on offer. Customers can also score bonus points if they join before June 30, which will be based on how long they’ve been with Telstra. You’ll get 1,000 points if you have less than 5 years continuous tenure and 10,000 points if you’ve been with the company for over 5 years.
How to Join Telstra Plus?
Featuring three membership tiers — Member, Silver, and Gold — you’ll get access to discounted tickets, get the latest entertainment extras, and so much more. The benefits will depend on your membership tier. The higher it is, the bigger your rewards will be.
Gold members, for example, will get access to exclusive VIP services. Membership tiers are based on how much you spend with Telstra every membership year: $0 – $1,499.99 for Member, $1,500 – $2,999.99 for Silver, and $3,000 + to reach Gold.
Customers who are over 18 with active personal Telstra service and Telstra ID are all welcome to join. If you don’t have a Telstra ID yet, just head to the Telstra website and register for one. It will take 24 hours for your Telstra ID to be activated before you can join Telstra Plus. There are no joining fees.
What about Telstra Thanks?
Soon, all the benefits of Telstra Thanks will be moving to Telstra Plus to consolidate all the rewards into one program. Customers can still make use of the current offers under Telstra Thanks for a while longer. Offers include a 20% discount off adult, junior and family tickets when you attend the 2019 NRL Telstra Premiership. Footy fans can also get $20 tickets to attend selected 2019 Toyota AFL Premiership matches.
Exclusive Telstra Benefits
Telstra Plus benefits have not been officially released yet, but they’ll mostly include discounted movie tickets and pre-sale access to multiple sports and entertainment events. There will also be additional benefits such as extra entertainment and VIP services, all the more reason to join Australia’s biggest mobile network.
