Summing up: is this a good deal?
This offer may entice those who like to stream sports games either live or after the fact.
Let’s crunch the numbers, valuing Qantas Points at 2c each. Having a basic plan for a year will cost you $300 in total. You’ll get a $20 kickback (1,000 points) for signing up and then $2 (150 points) per month, meaning you’re getting a return of $44, which is ~15%.
For the premium plan, you’ll outlay $420, earning $30 worth of points (1,500 points) for signing up and $3 each month. In total, that’s a return of $66, or ~16%.
For those who are into sports and going to sign up anyway, why not earn some Qantas Points along the way? However, if you aren’t into streaming sports, there are cheaper ways to earn bonus Qantas Points.
