API also owns holiday homes, where you can stay at very special rates.

What’s in it for you?
You gain access to meaningful, everyday type discounts at over 300 retailers. You could save hundreds of dollars each month just by changing how you pay for purchases at the stores you already shop at. It's easy, and quick using a smartphone, tablet or PC.
Because API is a not-for-profit organisation, we do not have to pay dividends to shareholders. Any money made is reinvested to provide you with more discounts.
API also owns holiday accommodation in some idyllic locations around Australia, where you can stay at rates well below the market rate.
A little bit of history
API was started by the Postmaster-General (PMG), the Honourable William Webster MP, in 1918.
In 1975, the Postmaster General’s Department (PMG) was split into two sections, Telecom Australia and Australia Post. Telecom later changed its name to Telstra. API continued to serve staff from both organisations.
As friends and family found out about the benefits available from API, API opened its doors to people outside of Telstra and Australia Post.
