Optus Xtra will be closing on 1 May 2018. From this date, you will no longer be able to download or use the app. All affected customers will be contacted via SMS with details around their final reward. See optus.com.au/prepaidnotification for details.
If you’re on an eligible Optus Prepaid plan, you can score extra data or credit every 28 days – just by hosting ads on your Android phone lock screen. Plus, you can get access to some great third party offers.
Once you’ve downloaded and signed up to Optus Xtra app, choose the types of ads you’d like to see, and they’ll automatically start appearing on your lock screen. If you like what you see, you can tap to find out more. If it’s not your thing, just swipe the arrow right to unlock your phone like normal.
If you’re on one of these plans, you’ll get an extra 1GB of data every 28 days using Optus Xtra:
- Prepaid Ultimate Plus
- My Prepaid Ultimate
- My Prepaid Ultra
- My Prepaid Ultra Plus
If you’re on one of these plans, you’ll get an extra $2 of MyCredit every 28 days of using Optus Xtra:
- Prepaid Daily Maximiser
- My Prepaid Daily Plus
- $2 Days 4G Ready
Not on one of these plans? It’s easy to make the switch – simply SMS “MENU” to 9999 and select option 4. Check out our Prepaid plans at www.optus.com.au/shop/mobile/prepaid/plans.
Optus Xtra has a 28 day countdown, which you can see in the app, so you’ll know when your next hit of extra 1GB data or $2 MyCredit is coming your way. "One day" will be recognised in the Countdown if you are connected to the internet and swipe to unlock your phone at least once a day.
Once you qualify to receive your extra data or credit, it will take up to 24 hours for it to be credited to your account. You’ll receive an SMS confirming this. Remember, you will need to be in an active recharge to receive your extra data or credit. Otherwise, we’ll hold it for 60 days and we’ll credit your account with the extra data or credit once you recharge $10 or more.
