    More than 60 million rewards points earned for getting the COVID jab

    COVID-19 vaccine

    More than 60,000 Medibank customers have now claimed their Live Better Rewards points for getting the COVID jab since the launch of the initiative in August last year.

    Eligible customers who are fully vaccinated can claim 1,000 Live Better Rewards points by logging the activity in the Live Better Rewards app. That’s equivalent to the value of a $10 Amcal gift card.

    The points can be used by eligible Medibank customers towards gift cards or products from partners including Adidas, Amcal, Apple, Brooks, Fitbit and Onsport. Customers can also choose rewards including saving on their health cover or getting more on their extras like a remedial massage.

    Medibank Group Executive Customer and Brands, Rob Deeming said New South Wales (26%) had the highest number of customers claiming points for being fully vaccinated, followed by Victoria (25%) and Queensland (22%).

    “We’re proud of the contribution we’ve made to encourage our customers to get fully vaccinated,” Mr Deeming said.

    “Of the customers who claimed their Live Better Rewards points, 65% were women and 34% men with the majority aged between 25 and 44.”

    Eligible Medibank customers with hospital or extras cover can still claim their 1,000 points for being fully vaccinated if they download the Live Better Rewards app.

    “We’d also encourage our customers to continue their Live Better Rewards journey by taking part in weekly and monthly challenges," Mr Deeming said.
