Telstra's big plus for Telstra Plus members


No need to be nonplussed - Telstra Plus is Telstra's rewards program, and it has saved me a couple of hundred bucks on the price of an Apple Watch Series 6 which I am paying off over 12 months, so the benefits are truly real and Telstra has just added more!

We're reminded that Telstra Plus is "always looking for more ways to give value to Telstra customers", and naturally, the company says it "is excited today to announce our first ever partnerships, giving members more ways to earn Telstra Plus points and benefit from the program."
