Get ready to get some great online shopping deals during lockdown

If you're stuck in lockdown somewhere, then a spot of online shopping could be just the thing to keep you occupied.

We've rounded up some of the best lockdown deals around - both practical, and feel-good - to help your stint indoors be a little more manageable.

Phone and internet plans

Phone use goes through the roof when you're inside all day, working from home and communicating with friends. Vodafone has several great deals to help you save, and it's rolling out its 5G network to selected areas of major cities, so your internet is super efficient when you need it the most.

Get your first month of plan fees for free on the $55/mth 4G Home Wireless Broadband Plan when you sign up by 15/09/2021, or save $300 on the iPhone 12 mini at just $24.97 a month over 36 months on any Vodafone Infinite Plan.
