IOU CREDIT FOR YOUR PREPAID
We know it's annoying when you run out of prepaid credit and can't recharge straight away, so that's why we offer IOU credit.
With IOU credit, we can lend you a little bit of something to get you by. It gives you a little extra time so you can still send that urgent text, make that important call or even browse the net.
Getting an IOU is easy to do. Just text IOU to 468.
On My Prepaid Daily and Daily Plus, we put a $2 credit onto your phone, then, the next time you recharge, the $2 credit will be subtracted from your balance. Simple.
WHICH IOU CREDIT CAN I GET?
My Prepaid Monthly Plus and My Prepaid Monthly
Next time you run out of credit you can get an IOU for 10 minutes of standard national calls, 10 standard national SMS/MMS and 10MB data, all for use within Australia, for two days. If you've got at least $2 Extras Credit, we'll immediately deduct that amount from your Extras Credit & give you your IOU credit straight away. If you don't have enough Extras Credit, we'll deduct 10 minutes and 10MB data from your next $10 or $20 recharge or $2 Extras Credit from your next recharge of $30 or above.
Other Prepaid plans
Text IOU to 468 and get $3 IOU credit and a bit more time before you need to recharge. When you do next recharge with $5 or more we'll deduct the $3 from the balance.
