THERE are both good and bad things about the end of the financial year.
Let’s get the bad part out of the way first: all that paperwork.
Revisiting all your expenditure, tallying up receipts, trying to remember where you were and what you bought on August 26 last year...it can be a headache.
However there is a good side to getting your finances in order. It will reveal opportunities where you can start to make savings.
You’ll be surprised at how quickly apparently small savings here and there can add up to a substantial amount.
Maybe even enough for a weekend away? Why not – you deserve a treat for taking the time to improve your finances.
Your mobile phone account may not readily spring to mind as a savings opportunity, but if you compare your last few bills with the plan you are on, you might see that what you’re paying does not reflect how you actually use your phone.
“We are able to help many people who are still paying for data and cost per call,” Pennytel CEO Rene Sugo said. Pennytel is a mobile service provider which specialises in supporting older customers.
“If you pay a fixed cost for your mobile service – one that includes unlimited standard calls and texts and a set amount of data – this makes it very easy for you to stick to a budget next year, and you can choose a plan that better suits your usage,” he said.
One area where it is easy to bust your budget is mobile data, especially as some providers automatically add extra data. Avoid bill shock by tracking your data usage – for example Pennytel provides a mobile app to do this, and you control if you want extra data.
And there’s also another good thing about the end of the financial year: the opportunity to snap up a bargain. It’s not just furniture, clothing and electronics where you can save around June 30, but on mobile plans as well.
“Pennytel is currently offering one month free as part of our EOFY celebration,” Mr Sugo said. Simply use the promo code EOFY2018 when you place your order.
“And not only that, you will not be locked-in to a contract, so it’s a great opportunity to test our service and be in for a pleasant surprise.
“Plus, our plans are flexible so you can change your plan at any time without penalties or fees. So if you need more or less data, or if a new plan is released that suits you better, simply swap.”
Make it your new financial year resolution to get better value from your mobile phone plan by calling 1300 232 888 or jump online and visit pennytel.com.au.
And don’t forget to send a postcard.
