X Marks The Spot to win one of 10 new Xbox Series X consoles - Telstra Exchange
We’re giving Aussie gamers and internet sleuths the chance to be among the first to get their hands on the Xbox Series X with a virtual treasure hunt.
To celebrate the impending arrival of the brand new Xbox family of consoles, were giving Aussie gamers and internet sleuths the chance to be among the first to get their hands on the Xbox Series X when it lands later this year with a virtual treasure hunt. This is a big day – the moment millions of gamers around the world have been waiting for. We know the wait for the next generation of Xbox consoles has been long and hard. Were looking forward to trying the Xbox Series X for ourselves, but we wanted to reward Aussie fans by giving you a jump on pre-orders – as long as youve got the puzzle-solving chops. X Marks The Spot is eXactly what it sounds like. Weve hidden 10 Xbox Series X consoles in virtual locations around our corner of the net for eagle-eyed fans to find, with a distinctive mark giving you a pretty good idea of what youve found. Each location has been picked for its significance to Telstra or Xbox, and the prize is worth the effort: the first eligible hunter who successfully finds one of the virtual locations using the clue to that virtual location will get their hands on the equivalent of an Xbox All Access package from Telstra, including an Xbox Series X console as well as a 24-month membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. As gamers, you know how to approach complex and unconventional challenges and solve them as efficiently and effectively as possible. We all play in different ways though – a speed-runner might try to tackle the problem as fast as possible, but if youve played Portal then you understand the value of having a good hard think before you dive in. If gaming to you means a session of Candy Crush on your phone on the train to work, then youve got the right stuff too – put those logic skills to work. We want you to use those tried and tested talents to track down the hidden consoles. This treasure hunt will end when all the consoles have been found, but we think weve put together some pretty hard clues, so it might even stretch until the end of the promotion period on 22 September at 12 midday (AEST). When youre submitting your entry, we want to know two key things – which clue youre responding to, and where (you think) youve found the answer. Copy and paste the website address (URL) of the page when youve found it, and let us know using the entry form below. Each location will be revealed as its unearthed, so you wont be stuck looking where an Xbox console has already been found. If we think you need them, we might also drop additional clues in the coming days, so check back here regularly to find the latest updates. If that sounds up your alley, head down the page for the full list of locations and clues to get you started. Terms and conditions apply. Locations and Clues 1. Messy slurp without first rinsing gets us rewards 2. The first awestruck, fierce legends before ten amateurs led to a different competition 3. We’ve come a long way since Emily Valentine tied up her boots 4. Running out of time to master Call Me Maybe on Just Dance (can’t explain why yet tho) 5. What is that place which cradles the iron, born of the forge. After tired and tried days on the battlefield? My axe rests here 6. The dandy dropped 500 to shout us a writing tool, but he’s still a great boss among the birds 7. Learning to fly is hard, but we’ve been looking into it, and you’ll never hear us say you shouldn’t get involved 8. Broccoli mixed with football to focus on the task at hand 9. Sounds like 100 takers in this seafaring game 10. Navigating initially north by north, a simple changing service Enter by filling out the form below. Happy hunting!

The Series S is also the smallest Xbox ever, despite its next-generation speed and performance. Its more affordable than the super-powered Xbox Series X, too. The Xbox Series S may be cheaper than Xbox Series X, but its designed around the same technology and Xbox Velocity Architecture that means its a truly next-generation console. It has the same benefits like faster load times and Quick Resume, letting you suspend a game wherever you are, even without a save point, and come back to it later. You can even jump between multiple games in a flash.

Why we're changing our mobile plans, and what you'll get out of it - Telstra Exchange
We know you're using more mobile data than ever, so we’ve updated our plans and pricing to meet that need as we roll out Australia’s largest 5G network.
We know that you want and are using more mobile data than ever – so weve updated our plans and pricing to meet that need as we continue the rollout of Australias largest 5G network. As part of our huge reimagining of what Telstra is and does for our customers through our T22 strategy, were committed to responding to what you want from us. Last year, as we moved to plans which had no lock-in contracts and no excess data charges in Australia, we radically changed the way we worked. If you have a mobile plan with Telstra, you now have the freedom to move up and down plans to suit your budget and data use each month, so you only pay for what you want. One year on from when we introduced our new mobile plans, we’ve seen a fundamental change in the way Australians are living and working through the coronavirus pandemic. To that end, were refreshing our mobile plans with up to 30GB of extra data, including 5G network access on selected plans for customers with a compatible device in 5G areas waiving the $15 additional fee for 5G access, and helping to ensure those who may be struggling financially have options to suit their needs. Heres the bottom line: From July 1, in line with the extra data weve added, prices will rise by $5 per month on new Small, Medium and Large mobile plans. Our Small plan gains 10GB of extra data for a total of 40GB per month, while Medium and Large plans both add 20GB for a total of 80GB and 120GB a month respectively. Our Extra Large plan will rise by $15, and include 30GB of extra data for a total of 180GB. Were including 5G access on Medium and above plans as part of this shift. The good news for existing customers who migrate to our new plans before September 30 is that they wont see any price rise for 12 months. Well be contacting these customers about their plans changes to encourage them to migrate and take advantage of this rebate. Importantly, following the conclusion of our 12-month free 5G trial, we have decided not to charge a separate fee for 5G on our new month to month plans. Customers will be able to continue getting 5G if they are on eligible plans or by switching to our Medium and above plans. This is ultimately because 5Gs capability to handle more data-intensive uses like streaming means that customers with 5G use more data – so weve given our 5G-capable plans even more of it. A small number of customers on existing Small plans who have a 5G handset will be migrated to a Medium plan, which includes 5G access – but those customers will be given an equivalent monthly rebate for 12 months to ensure theyre not unexpectedly paying more. In addition to the extra data and 5G access, were also including access to Foxtels new streaming service Binge on us for a minimum of three months for all customers on these new plans, as well as extending our offer of Kayo sports streaming for as little as $15 per month. Were also boosting the points earning rate for Telstra Plus, our rewards program for customers, and giving all Telstra Plus members an additional three months of Binge. Silver and Gold members get even more – an additional six or nine months (on top of the three months for all customers), for a total of up to 12 months access to Binge on us. After looking at how we can better support our customers during financial hardship, were also adopting a more enduring package of measures for those who need them. These measures include permanently removing late fees for customers on direct debit, adding the option online to immediately suspend services as your needs change or if you need to reduce your spend, and extending the application date for our discounted Connected Family internet offer to September 30 for eligible low-income families. Were also continuing our $30 Value Offer mobile plan for eligible customers with a healthcare card. As Australia begins to return to a new normal, and as we all learn to live more safely with the ongoing presence of coronavirus in our communities, we too are adapting our mobile plans to face the future. Weve seen first-hand the dramatic change in the way Australians are working and living, how we are using our mobile phones and mobile data more than ever, and we believe weve got the balance right.
