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 from a Telstra post-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.

Please note 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 your 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.
