Kogan Mobile 3XL includes unlimited standard national calls and texts and 3GB of data within Australia for just $29.90 for 30 days, or $24.65 per 30 days when you pay $299.90 upfront for a full year (which works out to be 83c per day).

Customers can also earn one Qantas Point for every dollar spent with Kogan Mobile.
“This time, Kogan Mobile has cut out the middlemen in a direct deal with Vodafone, which means we can pass on savings to customers, whose service will be reliably delivered by Vodafone,” Kogan Mobile executive director, David Shafer, said. “We now have a network ally who is really supporting us, isn’t scared of competitive pricing, and has an interest in seeing Kogan Mobile succeed in the market.”
Vodafone has invested $3 billion in more than three years into its network and now offers 3G and 4G coverage to 96.9 per cent of all Australians.
