What's your experience getting bonus points with Qantas Assure?

Has anyone joined qantas assure life/health etc during the promo period of 100k points and then cancel after the points have posted to their accounts? Seems like a lot of points can be had for as little as $160 for 100k

Is there a catch to this?

Hi Parker35,\r\n\r\nYou probably didn’t get it right.\r\n\r\nYou have to hold the top hosp. and top extras policy for at least 2 months to get the full 100k points. It will cost you >$1000 AUD,i believe. Its around $537.7 something for a family.\r\n\r\nWhat you need 2 figure out is how much you are paying extra, on top of ur current private health cover and whether you can take something out of that. e.g. if you take top hosp. and xtras cover, if you get glasses for yourself or your partner(if applicable), there is $350 AUD annual limit for optical. \r\n\r\nSo if you can take something out of it, I guess it would be worth-while.\r\nif you are paying $600-$700 more than ur current cover and can’t take anything out of it, then its not worthwhile… thats what i think anyway… don’t know about others…

I’m pretty sure you need to hold cover for a minimum period. secondly the maximum points comes from the most expensive premium package

Did some reading and it turns out this wont work

Have to hold the policy for almost a year to get the full credit of points. So  not worth it if your just doing a points grab. maybe worth it if you actually want the insurance cover.
