Prepaid Mobile Review – Savvytel Recharge (May 2013)

Savvytel are one of the first plans that I reviewed when I started this website, in fact I have converted hundreds of Savvytel customers over the past few years, two of them within my own family. Savvytel have become well known for their Savvytel Credits Never Expire Offer. At 12c per 30 seconds and a 20c flagfall, the rates are pretty competitive, certainly not the cheapest going around but if you hardly use your phone and get annoyed when you discover that the $50 recharge you applied last month has already expired even though you only made a few calls in that time, then you need a prepaid mobile plan like Savvytel. This offer remains by for the best in terms of value if you hardly ever use your phone but want the protection should you decide to. With Savvytel, the $50 will not expire even if you haven’t used your phone in the last month or two or three. Credits don’t expire. Last year Savvytel launched SavvyLite. For those who want an ultra low call rate, and this is really one of the cheapest in Australia at the moment, 10c per min is as good as it gets and no flagfall means that your 2 minute calls will only cost you just 20c. If you only make 1 call every day that is under $1.50 per week in call costs. Add to that 5c per MB for your mobile internet access and you have a very competitive offer. Note that Savvytel uses the Optus network. Credits in this case last for 90 days which is great.

So how does SavvyLite stack up with some of the cheapest plans out there. A 2minute call using Virgin Bean Counter will cost you 45c, Crazy Johns FlatChat would be 30c, gotalk Aussie Extra is slightly cheaper at 18c a call. Therefore we can confidently crown SavvyLite the second cheapest in Australia at the moment.My wife started with the Credit Never Expire plan and as we found that she was doing more and more calls, I felt that it was time to switch to SavvyLite. To do this, all I did was buy a different recharge and it switched over. Now she spends about $10 per month.Savvytel recently launched SavvyExtreme. This is their unlimited offer and whilst I don’t count it as “prepaid” you can compare it here. All Savvytel plans use the Optus network.

Personal Review
I have used Savvytel Credits Never Expire and SavvyLite with several of my family members and have had total satisfaction with the service. Even when the network provider was Vodafone I found it to be great and the same goes with the current network provider in Optus.Both parents currently use the service and I selected the Credits Never Expire options because they only use their mobiel phones when they need to and so credit eg $20 recharge normally lasts 4 months. The actual recharge process is very easy and can be completed online or from a retail store. With online you can purchase using a number of payment methods and it only takes a few minutes to process. You will then receive a confirmation TXT.The online portal featured below displays your current credit plus all of your transactions. It is a great way to review your spend and makes changes if necessary. I have completed tens of recharges using their online portal and have never had an issue.savvytel recharge
