SENIORS GET A BOOST WITH NEW MOBILE PHONE DEAL
Written on the 9 November 2016 by Kevin Conolly
Seniors in NSW are being offered an exclusive new deal on mobile phone plans as well as new in-store workshops to help use technology as part of a new partnership between Vodafone and Seniors Card NSW.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly welcomed the new partnership that will allow Seniors Card NSW holders to switch over or upgrade to any of Vodafone's $40 or above handset plans or SIM only plans in-store, and receive the first months' access fees free.
"This opportunity is another example of how the NSW Government is making the Seniors Card even more valuable," Mr Conolly said.
Vodafone Australia Director of Sales Ben McIntosh said Vodafone wants to ensure seniors are getting the savings they deserve.
"We know 93 percent of seniors use their card every day to receive discounts and 77 percent of them also use the internet every day," Mr McIntosh said.
"This is why we believe by providing this offer to seniors in New South Wales they can take advantage of our 4G network to make the calls they need to loved ones. On applicable plans, customers will be able to make infinite standard national calls and browse the internet on their mobile device."
Included in all Vodafone postpaid plans are infinite standard national calls and texts, generous amounts of data and access to the company's award-winning $5 Roaming, which gives customers the freedom to use their home plan in more than 50 countries worldwide for $5 extra per day.
Vodafone will also be holding six in-store workshops for Seniors Card holders from November 2016. These workshops will be focused on helping older people better use technology, including making the most of a smartphone's features, how to back up a phone, and security tips and tricks.
