Spend Control is a handy little tool that keeps an eye on your total spend across minutes, texts and data over and above what’s included in your monthly Plan (including any extra Add Ons you may purchase during the month).
If you set your Spend Control limit at $30, for example, and you’re on a $40 Carryover Plan, once you’ve spent $30 over your plan charges, Spend Control will kick in and won’t let you spend any more. Pretty handy.
Please note that if you have an interest free phone, this amount is included as a ‘plan charge’ and won’t count towards your Spend Control Limit.
Once you’ve set it up, we'll send you a text to notify you when you are within $10 of your Spend Control limit so you can decide if you want to increase your limit.
Spend Control works independently from your credit limit – find out more about your credit limit.
We know it’s a little trickier managing your spend when you’re abroad, so setting a Spend Control limit is a great way to help keep your bill in check when you’re traveling.
You can set a Spend Control by logging in to Your 2degrees or through the 2degrees mobile app.
Log in to Your 2degrees and clickon the ‘Spend Control’ link on your dashboard. You can find this under ‘Your Plan Details’. If you have set up a Group Account and would like to manage the spend for each of your connections, then you'll need to ensure each of your connections under your Group Account has Spend Control set up. Each of your connections can do this by calling Care on 200 or heading to a store. We'll then send a text to each connection when they’re within $10 of their limit.
