What use is a free sim if you need to pay more to use the service compared to other Optus resellers ???
I'm not sure, but it's free, so you can't lose - since there is no need to use it if you don't want to.
Then again, maybe someone just wants to check the Optus mobile broadband coverage or signal strength in their area, compared to what they already use, and don't want to buy a SIM card just to do that?
It's not for me to judge what people might want to use it for.

For $10 off?
Can you use this to join optus perks
optus prepaid activation now require a min $10 card payment. hate it
Yes, or a $5 voucher from a retail store.
Well in that case it's a better deal to get a half price $10 sim.
These have a use. If you own a stack of another carriers sims, you can port out/back for free. To actually bother putting a recharge on this? Nah not worth it. Wait a few days and get something half price from your friendly local retail conglomerate.
Good point! But doesn't activation so one can port, requires recharge?
I think you are correct, can't port (activate) Optus without adding credit.
Keep one in my draw as a spare incase i lose my sim or my phone so can just chuck it in my backup phone.
Unused SIM cards have an expiration right?
Guys this is a data SIM (for tablets etc).
A lot of posters seem to think it's a mobile phone SIM, which it isn't.
Just an fyi.
