Telstra Plus loyalty program

Looking at how existing customers are treated is a great way to see where a company’s true priorities lie. While some sink significant resources into wooing new customers, there is unfortunately a tendency to neglect existing customers. Knowing this, Telstra have created Telstra Plus – which has more in common with a credit card rewards plan than any loyalty plan seen in the telco industry previously.

Anyone with a personal Telstra account – whether it be for phone or broadband – is eligible, with registration easy to do on the company’s website. From there you can start earning Telstra Plus Points on every dollar you spend. There are three loyalty tiers: Member, Silver and Gold. The more you spend, the higher the tier – and the better the perks! Check out our Telstra Plus review for more.
