Guaranteed upfront savings to make premium handsets affordable for all
Singapore, 17 September 2021 – Removing all barriers to simple and affordable device ownership, StarHub has made an innovative leap forward to pass savings directly to customers with its new EasyGo device instalment payment mode. First in the market offering unmatched value, EasyGo allows SIM Only customers to buy their dream mobile device at $0 upfront cost and split the payment into small fixed monthly instalments, over a choice of 12 or 24 months, at zero interest and contract-free. SIM Only customers will also get upfront promotional discounts of up to $379 on selected mobile devices purchased through EasyGo, bringing the cost below retail prices.
“Building on the momentum to deliver the best entertainment and network services to our customers, we have introduced the EasyGo device instalment payment mode for customers to tap on these services with the most advanced devices in the market. For customers who want to stay on the beat of technology with timely device upgrades, EasyGo will allow them to bypass traditional 24-month mobile plans while enjoying guaranteed savings with the flexibility of SIM Only plans,” said Johan Buse, Chief of Consumer Business Group, StarHub. “Ultimately, we want to lift the restrictions of getting a device upgrade, and reignite exciting experiences for our customers, over and over again with StarHub. The time is perfect, with the launch of exciting new models from our friends at Apple and Samsung.”
EasyGo is available for both existing and new StarHub Mobile customers. All they need to do is to renew or sign up for a new SIM Only plan. For SIM Only with 5G, customers have two choices: Mobile+ SIM Only $38 or Mobile+ SIM Only $45, for up to 90GB, 1,000 talktime minutes and 12 months of Disney+. The other SIM Only option is a contract-free StarHub 4G SIM Only plan at $20 monthly, which comes with 40GB and unlimited talktime. Subscribers of StarHub two-year mobile plans switching to any SIM Only plan will receive an additional $50 device discount when they make a purchase using EasyGo.
Example of how it works
Without spending a single cent upfront, customers can enter any StarHub Shop today and walk away with a brand new phone, for instance: Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, Apple iPhone 12, or OPPO Reno6 Pro 5G, coupled with a SIM Only plan. They will enjoy a special discount of up to $155 off the recommended retail pricing for these devices. From this point, customers just need to pay the instalment for the phone at $38 - $49 monthly, which will be charged together with the SIM Only plan of their choice.
Device trade-ins are also accepted, offering customers great value for their used phones. Customers can trade-in their used device to further offset their monthly charges, making EasyGo the most attractive and affordable offer in the market for back-to-back device upgrades. EasyGo will apply to Apple iPhone 13 purchases from 24 September 2021.
EasyGo is completely contract-free. Customers can decide to clear all instalment payments early at one go without any termination, administration, or other hidden fees. The initial device discount given upfront, will be pro-rated and reversed. Customers retain full ownership of their purchased devices.
EasyGo is available at all StarHub Shops. StarHub will bring this feature to online shoppers in the next quarter.
