Can anyone tell me - does this mean you only get 15% off when using points plus pay but only when you use 100% points? I'm having a hard time working this out (It's been a long day).

A points+pay flight using 100% points is essentially what other airlines call an 'anytime award' or 'any seat for x amount of points'. So instead of waiting for airlines to release award space, you can just buy a ticket like a normal person would with cash but pay the whole thing with points. This is a poor use of points as many will tell you.

That's still not a great deal given the astronomical difference between paying with points for cash and redeeming a classic reward.
Thanks djtech. Pretty much sums up my thoughts just wanted to check I was interpreting it correctly. I was super excited to see a 'deal' and special offer for all this flying I've been doing (making the conscious decision to fly Q) in my inbox but that soon disappeared when I re-read the offer. It's not such a deal after all.
