Great deal for what in my opinion is the best sports journalism on the planet. RRP is typically $6.99 per month.
Marketed as an offer for Optus Sport customers but I redeemed the deal without any Optus Sport membership.

"The Athletic 6-month free trial offer is available to Optus Sport customers who do not have an existing The Athletic subscription and who take up the offer between 9th August 2021 to 14th November 2021 through the offer URL: theathletic.com/optus. The 6-month free trial provides access to The Athletic from the date of redemption of the offer and automatically rolls over to a monthly paid subscription (for $6.99 per month), until you cancel via The Athletic."
