 Creditme2u Logo

The Credit Me2U service is a handy option that allows you to recharge a Telstra Pre-Paid service from your Telstra Post-Paid mobile account.

You can perform a small one-off credit transfer to a Telstra Pre-Paid mobile without registration. You can also register to make larger transfers or set up a regular scheduled transfer.

To access Credit Me2U on your Telstra post-paid mobile, dial '#100#' and press send. Then select '2' and 'Send' to select 'Credit Me2U'. Follow the prompts to complete your transaction.

Just so you know, recurring transfers need to be set up 24 hours in advance and require you to create a PIN. There is a 25c charge for each successful credit transfer. Any amount credited will be charged to the customer's post-paid mobile bill, in addition to the monthly access charge.

Each Telstra Post-Paid mobile can transfer:

  • a maximum of $100 per month by one-off credit transfer
  • a maximum of $300 per month by scheduled transfer
  • a maximum of $400 per month combined one-off and scheduled transfers.

Hint: Make sure you check the mobile phone number and amount before sending, as transferred credit cannot be reversed or cancelled once confirmed.

  • Step 2. Select the 'BPAY' option and follow the prompts given by your participating financial institution. Please make a note of your receipt number.
    Telstra Pre-Paid Biller Code is 150979.
    Your Customer Reference Number is your 10 digit mobile number
  • Step 3. We'll send you a text message (for Telstra Pre-Paid devices that can receive text messages), when the credit has been added to your Telstra Pre-Paid service. The recharge credit should be applied to your Telstra Pre-Paid service one banking day after your payment is received by Telstra.
Please note that as per any other BPAY transaction there may be a delay if you miss your bank's cut off times for BPAY transactions and on weekends and public holidays. You will need to be registered with your financial institution for telephone or internet banking to use BPAY.

If you have not used BPAY before, you will need to contact your bank, credit union, building society or other participating financial institution for phone and internet banking. For more information, please visit www.bpay.com.au

Save your payment details and create a recharge PIN

You can save your payment details and create a 4-digit recharge PIN, instead of typing in your credit/debit card numbers every time.

Once you recharge using a credit/debit card, you’ll see an option to ‘save’ your details and create a 4-digit PIN. 
You can then use your PIN to recharge via multiple options – online instant recharge, logging into My Account, using the Telstra 24x7 App, visiting m.telstra.com on your Pre-Paid device, dialling #100# or calling 125 8888 from your Pre-Paid mobile.

Scheduled Monthly Recharge

With Scheduled Monthly Recharge, you can recharge your Pre-Paid service automatically. The amount you choose will be automatically deducted each month on the date you nominate using your chosen saved payment method.
Once you’ve saved your payment details and set up a 4-digit recharge PIN, you'll be able to access the Scheduled Monthly Recharge service via My Account, using the Telstra 24x7 App, visiting m.telstra.com on your device, dialling #100# or calling 125 8888.

This service is compatible with recharge amounts where the expiry period is 28 to 31 days, such as the Telstra Pre-Paid Freedom Offer. We will make sure your credit and bonuses last until your next scheduled recharge date, by extending the expiry period for Scheduled Monthly Recharge customers.

See more information on Scheduled Monthly Recharge

 

Balance Based Recharge

With Balance Based Recharge you can recharge your Pre-Paid service automatically. The amount you choose will be automatically deducted using your chosen saved payment method when your Pre-Paid main account balance reaches a level specified by you. You can set this up by registering and logging into My Account.
