We are all feeling the pinch – the pinch of the cost-of-living crisis in Australia, and globally. Boost Mobile is coming to the rescue.

Thanks to their ongoing partnership with Coles Supermarkets, this week you can pick up an iPhone for less than 200 bucks at your local Coles.

Results from research conducted by Boost Mobile late last year revealed that:

  • 90% of Australians have made changes to their purchasing behaviour as a result of the rising cost of living
    • While 46% are making a few changes, 30% of people nationally have now made significant changes to their purchasing
  • 77% of Australians identified groceries as their most concerning expense.
    • This was followed by petrol/transport (61%), electricity (57%), cost of rent/mortgage (55%) and mobile phone-related costs (20%).

Jason Haynes, General Manager, Boost Mobile, on the Cost-Of-Living:
As a brand that has been fighting for value for Australians for more than 20 years, it has always been important for us to listen to consumers and make sure we are doing what we can to provide great value. This research shows that there is significant financial hardship facing many Australians that may be going unreported.

Despite this, many Australians are leaving savings on the table by sticking blindly with their existing mobile phone plans. To everyone reviewing their expenses – do your research and consider switching. It’s an easy way to deliver real savings without making any sacrifices to your lifestyle.

At Boost Mobile, we are all about providing quality product, great value and convenience for all Australians with our SIM Plans and refurbished phones. Boost Mobile is on the full Telstra mobile network. This covers one million square kilometres more than any other mobile network in Australia – that is almost the same size as NSW and Victoria combined.

Going on sale this week, consumers around the country can pick up a refurbished iPhone 8 (64GB) for just $199, an iPhone XR (64GB) for just $299, or an iPhone SE (64GB) for just $259, while stocks last. These represent significant reductions off all original RRPs and come with a FREE Boost Mobile $2 SIM to get you connected with full coverage on the Telstra network. If customers want to double up with more savings on data, they can also pick up the $30 SIM on sale for just $10 with 45GB of data!

That’s a major cost-saver for family members after a brand name smartphone – especially if comparing against the latest models which can cost you up to $2k.
