Money Hacks: Get 1,000 Qantas points just for asking about insurance
Getting somethin' for basically nothin' has never been easier.
February has just become March and that means we're now less than a month away from health insurance premiums going up by an average of 3.25%.
At this time of year, health funds know that you're going to be reviewing your current policies and checking to see if there is a better deal out there waiting for you. That's why every year in March, health funds offer all manner of deals to entice you into choosing them. These incentives range from cashback bonuses, to gift cards and free months of cover.
This year, Qantas Insurance is doing something a little different with its health insurance.
Not only are health insurance premiums for Qantas going up by the second lowest amount in the sector (1.76%), those looking to take out cover with Qantas Health Insurance can score themselves 1,000 Qantas Points just for inquiring about insurance.
Yep, all you need to do is head over to the Qantas Insurance website, enter your contact details with its "Switching Assistant" and a Qantas agent will get in touch. Speaking with the agent will net you 1,000 Qantas Points and there's no obligation to buy. Not too shabby.
Plus if you end up taking out health insurance with Qantas before 7 April 2019, you can also earn yourself up to 120,000 additional points, which is enough to get you a return ticket to LA with about 20,000 points left over.
