Boost Mobile teams up with Coles to deliver a refurbished Apple iPhone 7 to your shopping trolley

Two Australian companies’ partner to drive value and sustainability on popular technology

2 November 2020

Starting this Wednesday, Coles customers can pick up a refurbished Apple iPhone while doing their weekly shop, thanks to a partnership with BOOST MOBILE, the world’s largest youth-focused telco brand.

In a first for Coles, the fully refurbished Apple iPhone 7 32GB have launched at a promotional price of $2591.  The phone is unlocked, yet comes in premium Boost packaging and is bundled with a $10 Boost Mobile SIM to get you started. 

The refurbished iPhones undergo a rigorous 72-point inspection process to ensure that each device is genuine and in excellent aesthetic and functional condition. All phones are Australian compliant, have been data-wiped and are cross-checked against a national police lost and stolen database.  These phones also come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and 12-month warranty for additional peace of mind.  

Boost Mobile was the first major prepaid supplier to offer refurbished smartphones when it launched its online Refurb Store in July of 2019. The partnership with Coles underlines the companies’ shared commitments to delivering value for customers while improving sustainability outcomes by extending the useful life of high-quality technology.

As smartphones continue to climb in price, some costing upwards of $2,000 and often tying consumers into multi-year contracts, the $259 option for the Boost Mobile Refurbished Apple iPhone 7, including a $10 Boost Sim, provides an attractive option for customers looking for a great value phone solution on Australia’s biggest network. 

With a 12MP back camera, 7MP selfie camera and a range of smart features that include fingerprint scanning and Siri smart assistant, the Apple iPhone 7 combines the quality technical features that consumers expect at a price they don’t. 

For launch, the Boost Mobile Refurbished Apple iPhone 7 will be available in all Coles stores across New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory.  Coles plan to roll the program out to Victoria and Queensland stores at a later date. 

“Coles has had a strong mobile phone offering for many years, and this partnership with Boost to offer quality refurbished smartphones is another great way we can deliver value for our customers in a more sustainable way,” said, Coles General Manager Non-Food, Jonathan Torr.

“Australians are looking for cost-effective options more than ever before and we are excited that, after being the first to market refurbished phones last year, we can now partner with  another trusted Aussie brand in Coles to take refurbished smartphones mainstream like never before!” said Peter Adderton, founder of Boost Mobile.

“At Boost Mobile our mission is to find value for our customers and provide them with solutions that best suit their needs. The bundle comes with a $10 Boost Mobile introductory SIM, but savvy customers can then purchase a Boost Long Expiry recharge such as our $200 prepaid SIM, which will give them 100GB of data plus unlimited talk and text within Oz, to use over 12 months.  That gives you an iPhone and 12 months of great service inclusions on Australia’s biggest network for $459.”


Boost refurbished phones are available from this Wednesday, November 4 at Coles supermarkets across NSW, SA, WA, NT and TAS. It will be available in VIC and QLD stores at a later date. Note: Offer is not available on Coles Online.

Boost Mobile prepaid recharge offers are available online at or at one of 12,000 retail outlets Australia-wide including Coles stores.
