The good times keep coming for the amaysim group with two wins at the annual Money Magazine 2017 Best of the Best Awards.

amaysim group wins two awards at 2016 Money Magazine Best of the Best Awards
  1. amaysim won Gold in the Best-Value Prepaid Low Usage Mobile Plan category for our As You Go plan making it the third time we’ve won this category! We remember it like it was yesterday but you might not - it was one of three gongs we won in 2013 and one of two in 2012. You can read about the 2013 win and the 2012 win on our blog.
  2. Vaya (also part of the amaysim group) won Gold in the Best-Value Average Usage Mobile Plan category for its Unlimited M plan. In 2015 and 2014 Vaya won this very same award making this win the third time we’ve taken home the gong.

About the Money Magazine Best of the Best Awards

Now in their 16th year, these awards recognise the best products and services to help Aussies like you take the hard work out of choosing the best possible products such as the best-value mobile plans.

It’s a massive feat and a huge honour to be named as a winner alongside more than 100 gold-winning products as part of this prestigious awards event. We’re especially chuffed about the award for our As You Go plan because we recently changed the expiry period for the credit on this plan from 90 days to 365 days. Interested? Check out our blog with all of the deets related to our As You Go plan’s 365 day credit expiry.

I don’t mean to brag but this year alone, we’ve nabbed the following trophies, making 2016 our biggest year yet for awards:

With over a million customers catching onto the award-winning goodness of amaysim and Vaya, we’re finishing 2016 on a real high and can’t wait to get stuck into 2017.

November Newsletter

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!
