Well, that was unexpected .. to say the least.
Nevertheless, it seems like a good deal for everyone.
On further reading, this is important to notice regarding content packs:
(...)can be purchased for the Bonus Points that are included in the optional Membership, as well as with the points offered with Grand Master Lifetime service. Players without a Membership or a Grand Master Service can of course as well purchase new DLC content in the Item Store.
So in a way, it's free!
