    You earn a point for each $2 you spend. So if you loaded money onto it and used it for grocery shopping and the likes, points would be earnt faster.

    I didn't know about that. I don't remember where I put my card.

I've had 15 consecutive months of discounts by doing this, I just agreed to 6 months at $73.50 today. At the end of this contract, I'm going to try to screw them right down as we don't watch foxtel that much anyway so I wouldn't care too much if we did cancel it. I'm thinking of trying to get down to around $65 per month. It doesn't take much convincing on my part to get a discount, just make sure you call during business hours because that's when their cancellations team are there and they're apparently the only ones who can give the discounts.
    Do you ask to be tranferred to there cancelation team? Think I might give this one a try for sure.
