Get unlimited data when you need it for up to 12 hours! Skinny Data Binge is your one stop shop for short-term unlimited prepaid data. Perfect for any online binging sessions.
Go on a Data Binge with us!
Data Binge allows you to buy sessions of unlimited data usage. You can choose between 10 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours, or 12 hours. To buy a Data Binge you need to be an active Skinny Mobile customer, with enough credit to buy a Data Binge session.
A Data Binge session starts from the moment you purchase it, and will continue running until it expires. You cannot pause your Data Binge session once it has started. Any Data Binge sessions purchased while another Data Binge session is active, will not start until the end of your current active session. Once your Data Binge session has finished, normal mobile data usage will apply.
We will send you two Data Binge expiry notifications via the Skinny Mobile App and text message – one sent 2 minutes prior to expiry, and a second one sent once your session has expired. If you have bought more than one Data Binge session, you will receive your notifications at the end of your last purchase.
How do you get it?
It's really easy to start a Data Binge, just make sure you have enough credit. Skinny Mobile customers can use the Skinny Mobile app (make sure it’s the latest version) or text DATABINGE to 2424. In the Skinny Mobile app, tap on Data Binge and choose how long you want to Data Binge. Yeeeew.

NZ personal use on mobile phones only. Not for tablets, tethering or hotspots. Not for use on the $20 and $77 Unlimited Mobile Plan. Available on Skinny Mobile app, or text DATABINGE to 2424. Skinny terms and charges apply. For full terms see skinny.co.nz/terms
You can purchase it without a Plan, anytime, as long as you have sufficient credit on your Skinny Mobile account. Just keep in mind that once you run out of your Data Binge, normal data usage and charges will apply. If you have a Plan or Add-On data, you'll use that instead. If you're on Standard Rates you'll be using standard rates data, so you need to be aware of when your Data Binge session expires to avoid unexpected charges.
If you're on the $20 or $77 Unlimited Mobile Plan, you won't be able to use Data Binge.
Because we tell you upfront what the duration of the session is that you're buying, it's your responsibility you don't run over. You need to be especially careful if you're on Standard Rates, but have a threshold auto-topup set up. This would mean that once your Data Binge session runs out, if you keep on using data on Standard Rates, your account will repeatedly top up every time you reach the threshold.
If you have a Skinny Mobile app, your account is set up to receive Data Binge notifications both via the app and text message. If you want to change this, log into your Skinny Mobile dashboard, choose Settings, and click “Change your notifications”. Don’t forget to time your Data Binge session responsibly – if you miss the notifications, additional data charges may apply.
