Here at amaysim, we’re all about making your life simpler. Which is why for our fifth birthday (23 November) we’ve teamed up with our mates at Airtasker to help you take the hassle out of your everyday life.

The Airtasker crew are pros went it comes to taking hassles away. Whether it’s handyman work, office admin, photography and everything other task and errand in-between, you can count on them.

Competition details

From 9:00am (AEDT) Monday, 30 November 2015 to 5pm (AEDT) Friday, 18 December 2015 we’re asking you to tell us in ‘what household hassle have you been putting off for ages and why?’. Laundry, gardening, errands, and laborious life admin are a few that instantly pop to my mind. The ones that make us groan, laugh or shudder the most will win.

Prize - 100 prizes to your hassles away thanks to amaysim and Airtasker

100 x winners will get one of each of the following prizes:

  • 1 x amaysim UNLIMITED 60GB SIMs valid for one month (RRP $50/each) - unlimited standard calls & SMS, all in Oz, plus 300 standard international minutes and unlimited standard SMS to 32 selected countries, plus 60GB data per month for use in Oz. The use of amaysim UNLIMITED 8GB is subject to the amaysim Standard Form of Agreement and Fair Go Policy, which can be accessed at
  • 1 x Airtasker Gift Cards valid for 12 months (RRP $50/each). Gifts Cards can be used to pay for any new task via the Airtasker platform.


Judging will take place during two periods of the competition meaning there’s two opportunities to score yourself some scorching summer sweeteners.

The first period of the competition will be judged on 7 December 2015 and 50 x winners will be notified on the same day. The second period of the competition will be judged on 18 December 2015 and 50 x further winners will be notified on the same day – yep Christmas is coming early this year.

This is a Game of Skill and terms and conditions apply. Check ‘em out then head to the amaysim Facebook Page to enter.

It might seem odd that we’re the ones handing out presents for our birthday but we’re kinda nice like that (and humble too!). Here at amaysim, we not only want to take the hassle out of your mobile plan, we want to remove the hassle from your everyday life. Given Airtasker does this everyday it was a no-brainer for us to team up with them.

Celebrating nine amazing years!

20 Nov 2019

We’re growing up, but we’re definitely not growing old.

Our ninth year has been filled with awesome achievements, and we couldn’t have done it without your amazing support!

nine years strong

It felt just like yesterday when we embarked on an ambitious journey to shake up the dinosaurs of the Australian telco industry, with our BYO mobile phone proposition and SIM-only plans.

Fast forward nine years and with over one million customers catching onto the amaysim wave, it’s crazy to think that the best is still yet to come.

Whether you’ve been with us since day dot (back when the iPhone 4 was the hottest phone in the market), or have recently joined the amaysim family, we can’t thank our loyal customers enough for their support over the years, as we clearly wouldn’t be here without you.

still got our eyes on the prize

Between expanding our product offerings and enhancing the experience for our customers (be sure to check out the refreshed amaysim app), it's been an exciting year at amaysim HQ.

Not to mention we recently upped the data across our mobile plans, ensuring we keep our promise in offering Aussies greater choice when it comes to finding a great-value mobile plan that’s simple to use and won’t break the bank.

revitalised network agreement

As you all know, amaysim runs on the Optus 4G network, and mobile data is the fuel that allows our connected lives to exist. Data usage is only set to increase as we move into the future which is something we want to ensure is encapsulated in the type of mobile plans we offer.

amaysim and Optus have had a mutually beneficial partnership since we launched back in 2010 and in May we signed a revitalised network supply agreement (NSA) with Optus.

The updated agreement enables us to offer even greater products and services to our mobile customers, so keep your eyes peeled as we continue to expand our mobile plan offerings to meet our customers’ evolving needs.

Canstar Blue Awards

we love customer recognition

There’s always been a focus at amaysim HQ of doing right by our customers, knowing good things will come and although awards aren’t everything, from time-to-time it’s nice to be acknowledged!

To cap off a great year, we struck gold at the 2019 Canstar Blue Awards, taking home the gong for the most satisfied customers in the prepaid SIM-only category - shining a light on the amazing value our mobile plans continue to provide hundreds of thousands of Aussies.

What made this win even more special is the fact the Canstar Blue Awards are based on direct feedback given to an independent research firm by customers.

On that note, a massive shout out to our customers who continually give us a vote of confidence through loyalty and support – we appreciate each and every one of you.

let’s keep it going

Nine years in, we can honestly say we've never been more excited for what the future holds and we’re more determined than ever to continue delivering amazing value to our customers across both mobile and energy.

Bring it on!
