We’ve been waiting patiently for the carriers top show their hands in terms of the Lumia 950, 950XL in Australia, and it seems like Optus is the first of them to ante up. Appearing on the Optus website overnight, pre orders and a bonus offer appeared, and a great bonus offer it is.
Optus is offering a free Xbox One 1TB EA Sports FIFA 16 bundle, which is valued at $499 with purchase of either the Lumia 950 or 950XL. The bonus is available to the first 300 customers to pre order, and is online only. At time of writing this there are 226 xBox units still available. I wouldn’t expect a deal like this to last for very long. Of course this means taking up a new 24 month contract with Optus, and /or porting your number over from another carrier if you are going to jump ship to take advantage.
Currently plans available range from $40 a month with a $20 handset repayment, to $100 and no dollars up front. I don’t expect that the bonus will last too long, considering that it is the only carrier offer for these phones available at the moment. There’s no shipping dates mentioned for the preorder, but assume it is after or around the 8th of December. You’ll have to be quick to take advantage, are you going to order?
