Looks like this deal is back again.
A few fellow OzBargainers had some trouble using the referral code last time this was around, so I've put together a MiniWiki which will hopefully be useful!
What is in it for me?
The promo on offer is 6 weeks free cover for the referee, and a $100 EFTPOS gift card for the referrer. Medibank members can refer up to 5 people in any calendar year, meaning up to $500 of EFTPOS gift cards can be collected.
What level of cover do I need?
To be eligible for the 6 weeks free, you must hold combined hospital and extras cover (singles, couples, single parent or families) at any coverage level for a minimum of 6 weeks, and set up a Direct Debit payment system.
Is this a good deal?
Like most insurances, the price and level of coverage offered will vary based on every individual and their needs. For this reason, it's always recommended to get multiple quotes and read through the PDS' to ensure you are covered for what you need.
Having said that, the value of this "sign-up bonus" is what makes the Medibank deal attractive.
NIB - waiver of 2 and 6 month waiting periods on Extras
Bupa - 6 weeks free on selected Hospital and Extras covers
ahm - $200 EFTPOS gift card for Hospital & Extras cover
In my view, the Medibank deal sits above the Bupa deal for the additional benefit of being able to refer friends to the program to earn additional gift cards. Value is maximised in this deal by taking out cover for multiple people (ie couples or families), or a higher level of cover (such as Top Hospital + Extras).
Where can I read the Ts&Cs?
I can't sign up using the link on this page.
This is admittedly confusing! The link provided on this deal is not the actual deal. It is simply to direct OzBargainers to the Ts&Cs, or for sending your family and friends your referral code once you have signed up. To participate, you will need to use the referral randomiser below and then quote this number to a Medibank sales rep over the phone.
Medibank have no idea what I'm talking about!
Last time this deal was around, users reported problems through Live Chat (both existing users trying to get their code, and new users trying to sign up with a code given to them). For both existing and prospective members, my advice would be to call Medibank rather than use Live Chat - it seems the call staff are more aware of the promo. And if you get someone who isn't, hang up and try again!
Medibank didn't accept my referral code.
Despite the best efforts of the OzB mods, sometimes incorrect referral codes slip into the randomizer. Ensure that the referral code you're quoting is a 10 digit number.
This MiniWiki was awesome! Can I slide into your DMs for your referral code?
Thanks! Unfortunately this is against OzBargain policy, which exists to ensure all existing OzB referrees get equal opportunity to earn gift cards. Please use the referral randomiser below and ignore solicitation in the comments section.
