Samsung launched its new Samsung Galaxy S22 series of phones earlier this year, and according to our sister site TechRadar, the premium model in that series, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, is the best Android phone of 2022. If it’s at least AU$1,249 to spare and it doesn’t work well with iPhones, you’ll likely be considering the Galaxy S22 range as your next phone. If that’s the case, Telstra has a pretty generous deal starting tomorrow.
Starting Thursday, August 4 at 1am and running for 23 hours, any Samsung Galaxy S22 series phone purchased from the Telstra Store will have an Xbox Series S included. Not only that, but it’s a free Xbox All Access bundle, which comes with the console and 24 months of Game Pass Ultimate. In other words, spend at least AU$1,249 on a new phone and get AU$792 worth of free games.
The deal is part of Telstra Day, which is less a day to pay your respects to Telstra and more a day to get discounts on a variety of tech stuff. Applies to cash or flat purchases of Galaxy S22 models.
Note that the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription will start after the initial 24-month ‘free’ period that comes with Xbox All Access; after which, it will cost AU$15.95 per month. You can of course cancel it if you don’t want to continue.
So, to summarize, here are the three phones the deal applies to:
galaxy s22 (128GB/256GB), starting at AU$1,249 (opens in a new tab)
Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus (128GB/256GB), starting at AU$1549 (opens in a new tab)
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra (128GB/256GB/512GB), starting at AU$1849 (opens in a new tab)
Again, the offer is only available from 1am on August 4 for 23 hours and while supplies last, so if you’re interested you’ll want to be quick.
