An absolutely shocking web site. Why on earth do I need to click every question to see the answer?

Still, I am counting down the days (literally) until NBN is connected and I can cancel my Telstra home phone.

So there isn't infinite scrolling through every answer till you see the Q you are interested in. Kiddies on their phones ( like me :)) in particular.

I see it's all about the marketing. If you don't keep subscribed to their marketing, a lot of the value, or potential value, disappears.

So they want to give me extra just to pay my bill, which I have to do anyway? Nah, I don't know what the 'catch' is yet, but I'm sure it will irritate me.

I had a quicklook, the million dollar question is, how much does one need to spend with Telstra, to earn a $100 reward.
I suspect that the 3 year expiry on points is going to kill off any vallue for everyone except the high spenders (who probably dont care)

Thanks. I just joined.

Most informative site - I learned there was a Telstra Thanks program that I hadn't heard of before, but must have something to do with the offers they keep sending by email.,
Regards,
Renato

Bonus points in QFF, and I would be happy to port across my mobile.
Telstra has been spamming me about this for few days now, as in OP's post.

I land in the 'Member' tier. Silver is not that much of a stretch, but can't at the moment see the benefit of that.

Yet another paid membership subscription experiment.

Without any real material benefits advertised so far, I can’t see any benefit of paying the subscription fee , let along changing Telco’s for . ;)

There's no subscription fee as such, as far as I could see. Just get a trifling percentage of whatever you spend...

.... whilst no fee is apparent yet, most of these tier type membership programs will incur a fee for the premium membership levels.
I’m happy to be proven a sceptic, but I suspect the Telstra marketing department are in the process of completing plenty of quantative and qualitative analysis as to what Telstra customers might accept.

A bit off topic but I'll be changing telcos soon to Boost Mobile which is owned by Telstra. $150 pa for unlimited calls/sms/mms and 80 gig which is more than enough for me.
