Introducing Woolworths Mobile Australia
The familiar brand name that supermarket shoppers around Australia have known and trusted for years, Woolworths has added mobile phone services to its roster with an emphasis on value. Leveraging the Telstra 3G and 4G networks to ensure the widest possible coverage no matter where you are in the country, Woolworths Mobile offers prepaid SIMs, 12-month plans, and brand new phones on contract.
What Makes Woolworths Mobile Unique?
The connection with the Woolworths brand means that they’re able to offer real-world rewards to their mobile customers as well. Woolworths users get a discount on every recharge if they make use of the free Woolworths Rewards card.
Even better, Woolworths Mobile customers get a huge 10% off their shop at Woolworths supermarkets, one per month, every month.
On most plans, Woolworths also offers a generous data rollover scheme, with unused data continually rolling over to the next recharge up to a maximum of a huge 100GB – so if you’ve got a holiday coming up, you can store up that valuable data allowance to splurge on while you’re away from home. It’s easily one of the most flexible data rollover offerings around.

Great Data Allowances
Woolworths’ mobile plans are built on generous inclusions. All plans, from phone to prepaid to 12-month SIM-only, include the same base data starting from 3GB up to 35GB but are differentiated by their respective bonuses — up to 25GB monthly bonus for phone and 12-month plans and up to 28GB bonus on the first 2 recharges for the prepaid selections. Every 3 months, users will also get 10GB extra data, adding to your phone’s already hefty allowance.
10% Off Your Woolworths Shop Every Month
One of the most unique perks of being a Woolworths Mobile customer is the ability to get a 10% discount on your entire Woolworths shop once a month, every month – and you can even pick which day of the month to take advantage of the offer, so you can time it to coincide with a big family shop! All you need to do is have been a Woolworths Mobile customer for more than 60 days, and link your account to your Woolworths Rewards card; the discount will be automatically offered to you at the checkout.
Woolworths Mobile Plans and Pricing
Australians can choose between four plans — Extra Small, Small, Medium, and Large with 5GB, 12GB, 40GB, and 60GB base data. Starting out as a prepaid mobile provider with the option to go postpaid via the purchase of a handset, Woolworths has since added their 12-month SIM-only plans as well to diversify their options. Locking it in means big data allowances for customers with bonus data every month so you get more of what you pay for. Prepaid plans are great options for flexibility but bonuses are limited up to 2 recharges only. And for those who need a phone with their plans, you can add a handset from only $5/month.
To get started, Woolworths generously offers two high-end phone brands to pick from if you’re in the market for a new handset – Samsung and Oppo — and their FZ One smartphone exclusive to Woolworths. At the Samsung end, there are the must-have devices you’d expect, including the beautiful Galaxy S10. And from Oppo – a company better known for its super-high-quality Blu-Ray players – there’s a range of their latest models, some with a huge 6-inch screen. All phones are offered with a choice of four plans.

Woolworths Mobile Review
Tied closely in with the supermarket business that everyone identifies the name with, Woolworths Mobile aims to offer a mobile phone plan – either prepaid or via buying a new phone on a contract – that can also top up your supermarket rewards account with bonuses, or make recharging a prepaid service cheaper. On the surface, it looks like good value, However, there’s a few gotchas buried in the fine print that you should be aware of.
