After the success of the ‘Big Weekend’ in March Optus Pre-Paid mobile customers will be able to recharge and live large again this weekend.

This Saturday and Sunday only, (June 13 & 14), customers can recharge with $30 or more and receive $50 bonus credit to spend on standard calls and text, simply for being an Optus Pre-Paid mobile customer. Customers can also receive a FREE SMS reminder alert^ this Saturday morning by simply texting ‘BIG’ to 966!

Optus Pre-Paid customers are in control – no bills, no long-term contracts and no monthly commitments. They simply purchase what they need to get started and then top up their Pre-Paid credit when they need to.

Another unique offer from Optus is their Pre-Paid IOU Credit – when a mobile customer runs out of credit, they simply text ‘IOU’ to 468 (a free text) and we will provide them with $3 Rev-Up Credit, then on their next recharge $3 is subtracted from their MyCredit balance.

Of course, there’s a little small print attached to the $50 bonus credit:

“Boost Pre-Paid Mobile customers. Credit expires in 30 days. Minimum recharge $30. Offer starts 12:01am AEST 13/06/09. Ends 11.59pm AEST 14/06/09. You will receive $50 of Rev-Up Bonus which can be used for standard talk and text. Rev-Up Bonus excludes premium SMS and content, international roaming charges, Zoo content usage charges, Instant Messenger, video calling, 966 and satellite calls. Bonus credit will be applied to your account within 72 hours of activation. Customers will be sent an SMS notification upon their Bonus Credit being applied to their balance. For some call types, any free minutes or text included in your calling offer will be used before your Rev-Up Bonus is used.”
