expired $10 Myer Voucher When You Donate to Salvos

480

I couldn't find a better link to this deal so if someone does please post it and I'll edit this.

I went into the Salvos today and they have a deal on where if you give them a donation, they wil check it and make sure it's not junk, and then give you a $10 voucher for Myer. You can do this once a day.

Good way to get rid of some unwanted past bargain purchases and get some free cash! I'm not sure if the vouchers are stackable but I'd assume not.

"Myer and the Salvos will reward those who kindly donate with a $10 Myer voucher per donation, to be redeemed at any Myer store nationally from July 15th, when they spend $50 or more in one transaction on the following Myer participating brands:

Women’s: Basque, Regatta, Jane Lamerton, Piper and Trent Nathan. Includes Plus and Petite sizes where available.
Men’s: Blaq, Reserve, Jeff Banks, Kenji and Maddox.
Miss Shop department: Material World by Madonna, Miss Shop brand, T by Bettina Liano, Tokito and Tokito City.
Kids: Brooklyn Industries, Jack and Milly, Milkshake, Sprout and Tilii."

    For some reason, I would feel uneasy doing this.

      Just don't rip them off. Make sure you take good stock and don't take like one thing a day every day and dodge the system. It's not fair.

      It's because they have had a low rate of donations. They want quality donations not rubbish and will turn you away if you try to pass off crap… plus it's bad karma!

        I worked for a charity for a while on one of the trucks that go around picking up the donations from the donation bins around the city. Every week we took a truck load of rubbish taken out of the charity bins to the dump. You wouldn't believe the crap rubbish that people throw out as donations.

        Maybe that's why they're doing this to entice people not to give them rubbish which they have to pay to take to the dump.

      I agree with botftw. I would happily rather donate good stuff and say no thanks to the voucher.

      I agree, Myer is doing it tough with all the online purchasing nowadays.

    So it's more like a $10 of $50 coupon with strings attached.

      now botftw shouldn't feel uneasy anymore.

      So it's just a coupon for an up to 20 % off sale. Meh!

    You probably cannot stack on coupons.

    Looks like you can only redeem the voucher on clothes.

    Brands are:

    Women’s: Basque, Regatta, Jane Lamerton, Piper and Trent Nathan. Includes Plus and Petite sizes where available.

    Men’s: Blaq, Reserve, Jeff Banks, Kenji and Maddox.

      voucher is lame

    • +3 votes

      Thanks for the link.

      The promotion is about bringing in old clothes to the Salvos so it makes sense that the voucher is to buy new clothes.

      It looks like it might only be for Victorian stores.

        Yep, I think the title should reflect that it's Vic only, as per the description in the link.

      Those are the basement brands.

        People here are so sheepish. They see something has been negged so they follow by negging it without reason.

        • -1 vote

          yes, that's true, but your comment does deserve negs because those brands aren't really "basement brands"

        •  

          I guess it depends on the definition of "basement brands". Does it relate to the brands that used to be sold at the Myer Bargain basement (does this still exist?) or does the term mean something else in regards to stores other than Myer?

        •  

          I can only comment on the Men's brands for sure.

          I know for a fact that Blaq, Reserve and Maddox are Myer's own brands. Jeff Banks and Kenji I haven't really heard of but I'd assume they're the same.

          I'm 67% sure that the vast majority of all those brands are just Myer's own stuff.

          I call them basement brands because the clothes are all produced by Myer but given different labels to seem desirable.

    It encourages people to donate, and i doubt the $10 comes out of their pocket, it'd just be a Myer donated good deed voucher to promote themselves. I like the idea. + from me

    • +1 vote

      Agree- I guess Myer benefits from getting people in their stores and making them spend $40- and the Salvos get donations- a win win I guess! Probably more Myer than the Salvos but a good deed anyway.

    I prefer to just donate to the Salvos and wait for somebody to post a special sale at Myer :)

    This deal is useless to me.

    I already donate to the Salvos, clothes I and the family no longer waear with no holes / tears / smells / stains.

    And I don't spend $50 at Myer all year.

    Ofcourse Myer isn't doing this out of the goodness of their hearts..

    Don't get me started on companies who make large donations (customer donations) to the RCH appeal and the like and reap subsequent tax benefits.

    • +6 votes

      Make donations to Charitable Organisation(s).

      Claim deductions as per the provisions of the Income Tax Assesment Act.

      The Horror.

      •  

        Exactly … So anyone who makes a donation but also claims a legal tax deduction is evil ? Better off not donating at all?

    • +4 votes

      BR, if you donated to charities you would know that you can also legally claim tax deductions for charity donations. It's a tool encouraging people and companies to donate to charities.

      At the end of the day, after deductions the company will still be incurring a significant expense donating, whether it's out of the goodness of their hearts or for good publicity. They don't 'reap mysterious tax benefits' that outweigh the value of the donation.

    Screw Salvos, not only do they ask far too much for very used stuff (I am happy to buy used goods, but some of their prices are 80-90% of retail) but they are also a very anti-gay company. If you are going to donate your old items (and I think that you should) give them to a different charitable cause.

    •  

      Homophobia is so 2000 and late

    •  

      very anti-gay company.

      Any links to back that up ? If that's true it's not a very good sign for what is generally a very good charity doing good work.

      •  

        They have a whole spectrum of beliefs on homosexuality in their organisation. Their stance is against gay marriage and they do proactively campaign against it to various degrees around the world. You can't be an officer (as in ranked in their system, not employment or volunteering) if you are not a heterosexual Christian. Of course, in Australia they are probably among the most progressive of the organisation in the world, but as I was when I found out, people continue to be surprised just how religious they are.

        Though they no doubt do good work, I personally just don't support religious charities because there's both plenty of good secular charities out there and secular people are somehow criticised for not being as charitable as religious people.

        • +3 votes

          Well thought out response unlike dak52's rant. Any particular secular charities you'd recommend? I used to like Oxfam until I started getting their appeals for more more money - they way they did it just turned me off wanting anything more to do ith them. Despite, like you said about Salvo's, them no doubt doing good work.

          But when it comes to disadvantaged people on the streets/doing it hard, I often see Salvos out there (and some I know to be secular volunteers), I rarely see anyone else.

        •  

          In my view the Australian Red Cross do outstanding work.

        •  

          They do, but they also employ call centres to repeatedly (multiple times per year) pester donors for more money. They are not restricted by the do-not-call register because they are a charity.

    this is only for Victorian Salvos stores yes?
