Money Hack: Free Netflix for three months

Qantas passengers can score a no-strings-attached bargain on the streaming service.

Real talk here: at $9.99 for the basic package, Netflix is not massively expensive. However, that's no reason not to score a freebie if you can, right?

Netflix has long offered a 30-day free trial for new customers, but there's an additional option you can also take advantage of. If you end up on a Qantas flight that includes in-flight Wi-Fi, you can score three months for free, even if you're already a Netflix customer. Here's how it works.

The hack

Qantas offers free in-flight Wi-Fi on some B737 and A330 domestic services. If you're on a flight offering it, you'll know all about it: the cabin crew will announce the fact and there'll be a card explaining how to get online in your seat pocket. Essentially, you just need to connect to the Wi-Fi network and enter your name and seat details. (Check out our detailed guide if you want to know more.)

Once you're signed in, just click on the "Get 3 months free Netflix! Redeem Now" link. Log in to your Netflix account, and you'll have 3 months credited.

Note that this is the $9.99 Basic package. If you're on a more expensive Standard or Premium plan, you'll get $29.97, but will have to pay the difference once that runs out.

Even if you don't want to use Wi-Fi in-flight, it's worth getting connected just to take up this deal. Unfortunately, this isn't an ongoing offer: it expires on 31 March 2018. So if you're on a Qantas flight over the Easter break and in-flight Wi-Fi's available, make sure to take advantage of it.
