Watch Mr Robot, earn Virgin Australia frequent flyer points while you do.

Presto has announced a deal that will offer members of Virgin Australia’s Velocity Frequent Flyer scheme bonus points when they sign up for a Presto subscription through the Presto web site. Presto will offer 600 Velocity Points on the first payment for the Entertainment package, and then 50 points per month for every month afterwards that you remain a subscriber. It would obviously take you a very long time indeed to qualify for any kind of reward flight at those rates, but if you’re already a Velocity member pondering a Presto subscription, adding to your points total for no additional cost is no bad thing.

Presto’s Entertainment package combines its TV and Movie offerings in one bundle with a library of programs that changes each month as new programs are added.

As with any deal of this sort, there are some caveats to bear in mind. The Velocity Presto deal is only available for the full $14.99 Entertainment package, not the lower cost $9.99 TV or Movies packages. You can’t get the deal if you get the service for free via an existing Foxtel/Telstra offer or promo code. While Presto offers a one-month trial, you can’t simply sign up for that, cancel and get your 600 points; they’re allocated only after the first actual cash payment is made to Presto.

If you’re an existing Presto subscriber you’re not eligible for the introductory 600 point offer, but if you link your Velocity account number to your Presto service you do qualify for the 50 point offer for each month that you subscribe to the full entertainment package.
