  • So basically for anyone considering these recent promotions: Would you rather $250 in credit, or $75 in cold hard cash

    • Gift card hands down. I'm a young male who will inevitably spend greater than $75 on clothes (similar fashion to that of The Iconic) in the next year.

  • Probably credit depending on conditions

  • $75 in cash sounds much better

  • if you ended up missing out on the gift card, would that mean you would still be eligible for the $75?

    •  

      Each promotional code is not available in conjunction with any other promotional code.

      I doubt it.

  • well i called them and they said its by invitation only from the Iconic.

    They have no affiliation with this promotion. Its all being handled by the Iconic.

    This is a targeted promo

    •  

      Then how do you explain that @wicket1120 has received an email from ingdirect re. this promotion?

      Tell your friends.

      Get them to visit ingdirect.com.au/theiconic and enter this code:
      ExclusiveINGDIRECT

      • dunno, called them and that's what they told me.

      • I also received an email form ingdirect themselves about.

        I've spoken to a few different people at ING about it. Slightly different story each time. It sounds like initially, it was targeted to ING customers who have an account with the iconic (email from ING), and also the ICONIC customers (email from iconic if you're on their mailing list.)

        Initially you needed a unique code but now they've opened it up much wider, and appears to be not targeted (given that another email came round last week with a general code, saying we could invite our friends and family).

  • I just called the Iconic to see if I was on their list of gift certificates. They told me that INGDirect have all the gift certificates with them and will be emailing out gift cards when they are ready.

  • so is this targeted offer or not? do we have final confirmation from ing? i am thinking of signing up but waiting for confirmation. thanks :)

  • The ING Referral offer is back. Are we still using this wiki?
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/wiki/ing_direct_referral_links

    I admit it may not be the best offer given there are other offers in the market at the moment but it's always nice to help another ozbargainer out :)

  • Had anyone received their gift voucher yet?

  • +4 votes

    Received mine 2 hrs ago and opened the account on 19th of May.

  • If anyone looking to cash out the gift card cheaply inbox me :)

  • how long does the $1,000 have to stay in the account, also can the money be transferred from another bank account?

  • has anyone signed up recently gotten their $250 voucher yet?

  • Anyone received their Iconic card yet?

  • Do you still get 5% cashback with this offer? There's no mention of it on the URL

    • I didnt get my ICONIC card yet, but the customer services said that I'm on the queue for that. (Acc opened 9th June)

      But I've been getting the 5% rebate every-time I've waved. (even at the stores where they have a 2% surcharge for paywave, get an effective rebate of 3+%)

  • So it is 1000 per calendar month = $3000? (June, July, August)

    Or just one $1000 deposit?

    How long does it have to sit in the account for?

  • Sign up the account yesterday using the referral code to get 5% cashback and deposit $1k today.
    Register on the Iconic promo page links to opening up a new everyday account.
    Totally confused. Could anyone pls tell me what I shall do to get the $250 gift card?
    Cheers

  • who do you call to enquire if you're in the queue for the gift card? ING or theiconic?

  • Has this definitely expired?

  • Why is this marked as expired?

    • There have been conflicting reports of whether the codes have all been claimed. The official expiry date is 31 August. One user has reported on 28 June that:

      I contacted ING by phone today and they told me all the codes have been used up for this promo apparently.

  • So it is 1000 per calendar month = $3000? (June, July, August)

    Or just one $1000 deposit?

    How long does it have to sit in the account for?

  • i applied with an order number from an earlier order instead, shouldn't be affected by the supply of codes out there anyway.

  • Well, I'm happy to report that I just got the email with this offer ($250 Iconic Gift) and I also received the $75 bonus last week!

    • same here!

    • thanks for keeping this thread updated. When did you signup and how many deposits did you make?

      • Signed up for the orange account 18th June.

        Received email a week after sign up confirming my registration for the $75 bonus + the conditions of the offer.

        Deposited $1,001 in one transaction around 26th June.

        • I used my voucher straight away just in case it gets revoked as I also got the $75 bonus.

      • @avexdevil, did you end up receiving your card? I just signed up with an order number too…

  • Happy to report that I just got my ICONIC gift card few mins ago!!
    (Account opened 9th June and $1,005 transferred on the 16th June)

    Seems the promo isn't expired after all (end date on the site is 31st Aug)

    This was at the end of my giftcard

  • just applied with 'lovingINGDIRECT', lets see how it goes.

    • Please keep me updated as I just applied and called ING and they said that the promotion ended 13th July and is no longer available.

      If you receive anything please let us know.

  • It's only 2% cashback now

  • Can anyone who received the email copy the whole email here? Thanks.

    Did it have an expiry date for the promotion in the email?

    • To be eligible for the $250 THE ICONIC Gift Card ("Gift Card") you must be a new ING DIRECT Orange Everyday customer, register with the same details that you use to apply for your account, apply online and deposit your salary by 31 August 2014. Salary means a deposit of least $1000 per calendar month from an external bank account. You will receive the Gift Card by email by 4 September 2014. Maximum One Gift Card per person.

If withdrawn, ING DIRECT will honour all registrations entered before the offer is withdrawn, provided that you make your salary deposit by 31 August 2014.

      • Thanks. So nowhere in the email did it state that the promotion ends before 31 August 2014?

        Is it possible for you the forward the email to me if there's no sensitive information?

        I'd like to give you my email over PM but it seems you have it turned off.

        • Nope, try calling them, and if you have used the code posted by OP or the iconic order number from a previous purchase, you should get an email confirmation from ING direct. Try calling them and taking with a customer service manager.

        • @rashed:

          No, see the problem was I was reading the terms and conditions and stupidly thought I had to make an account on ING's website then register on the site given above.

          I found out after that the "registration" simply takes you to your account where you THEN make an orange everyday account.

          So I called up ING explaining the situation and they told me the promotion is no longer running. That the email should have said this deal expired on 12 July (or around that date, I don't remember exactly) and that there is nothing they can do for me and basically just suck it up.

          They can't even cancel my application so I qualify for promotions for new customers later on even though I called them within 10 minutes of applying.

          I was pretty sad about this. Basically signed up when the benefits have been reduced (5% cashback to 2%) and with no other incentives.

          Which is why I would like to have a forward of the email so I can call them up again and actually have something that I can argue with. (I tried telling them that on the terms and conditions on the website nowhere does it state that you have to open the account before 12th July and therefore I should get it but they said "we've withdrawn the promotion, we're not associated with the iconic anymore etc.")

  • Just got my code. Signed up end of June and put $1k in early July. If u use the code BIG100 u get $100 off if u spend over $350. So with the ING code and this code u can get $350 worth of stuff for free :-) very happy girl here.

    • Applied 16th of July and got my code yesterday too! Also used BIG100 in conjunction with the $250 gift card, got $357 worth of stuff for $7 :)

    • When is the Promo Code BIG100 valid until?

  • I applied and deposited $1000 from another Ing direct Account into my new one back in June and I still haven't received my gift voucher. So I contacted them and they told me that an external bank account that you deposit the $1000 from cannot be another ING direct Account. So If anyone hasn't received their gift voucher and transferred the money from another ING direct bank account, you would be best to use another bank to transfer that money. Hope that makes sense!

    • deposit your salary by 31 August 2014. Salary means a deposit of at least $1000 per calendar month from an external bank account.

      external = outside ing :)

      • Yeah I didn't realise that! And eventually I transferred the $1000 from an external bank account (before 31 August) but still haven't receive my gift card!

  • Applied for an ING account yesterday and registered for this and got an email stating that I'd registered etc so the promo still seems to be live.

  • Does anyone know if depositing cash at a post office counts as depositing salary? Or does it have to be a bank transfer?

  • Anyone got their gift card yet? I signed up mid August and no gift card yet. Today is the last day they will send the gift card.

  • I got mine, but my wife hasn't got hers.

    used two different codes, can't remember which

    • thinking about it, I believe I used 'ExclusiveINGDIRECT' on the one I received the voucher and either 'lovingINGDIRECT' or 'friendsofINGDIRECT' on the one I haven't.

      anyone else experience similar?

  • My wife and I both got our gift cards. Didn't remember which code we used. Thanks OP. Thanks ICONIC.
    Please note, you only have 21 days to spend it.

    • Mine says the 31st dec

      • "The $250 THE ICONIC Gift Card is issued by Internet Services Australia 1 Pty Limited, ABN 50 152 631 082, Level 2, 84-86 Mary Street, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia, trading as www.theICONIC.com.au ("THE ICONIC"). The Gift Card is valid for use at http://www.theICONIC.com.au (the "Website") for a limited time only and expires 11:59pm on 31 December 2014 (AEST)."

        there is more than 21 days to spend it….

        • Sorry, I was wrong. It says the e-gift card needs to be activated within 21 days.

          http://www.theiconic.com.au/gift-cards/

          ALREADY HAVE A GIFT CARD?
          Received an E-Gift Card? Please activate it within 21 days. This means you"ll need to spend it or save the credit to your account under "My Credit" within this timeframe. If you received a physical Gift Card, you do not need to activate it.

  • Wife spoke to ing direct, they said that she was on the list to be processed and should get it within next few days.

    • Same. Not sure why the email said they will stop sending on the 8th

      • Messaged them today and they said the ICONIC ran out of gift voucher stock. Not sure how that's possible but okay.. ING said that they should be sent by the end of this week.

    • Just recieved a text from ING notifying that it will be sent by the 30th of September. The email outlining the instructions to recieve the voucher said that I would recieve it by the 4th of September. I am not waiting over 4 months for a promotion to be fulfilled and will be contacting the ACCC tomorrow.

  • In regards to the 21 days, It says you have to activate it by adding the voucher pin to your account within 21 days and then you have longer to use it.

    • where does it mention 21 days?

      • i cant find this 21 days? do you have a different voucher brerose??

        To use your gift card, head to theiconic.com.au/ingdirect to start shopping and enter your unique pin at checkout.

        ^ and as per my prev. post

    • Sorry I realized this information is off the Iconic site and my not relate specifically to the ING Voucher I just thought it is better to be safe then sorry.

      "Do Gift Cards expire?

      Physical Gift Cards purchased in 2013 in-store from 7-Eleven, Woolworths and Big W are valid until 31 December 2014. Physical Gift Cards purchased in 2014 are valid until 31 December 2015. E-Gift Cards are valid for 12 months after activation. You must activate your gift card within 21 days of receiving it by either spending it or storing the credit to your account under My Credit."

      • Actually, I think you are right, when you go through checkout there is no option to enter a gift card pin.
        you have to add it to your account first as credit.

  • The Iconic have a spend and save offer running till Monday :)

  • Some SERIOUS hate going on about this promotion currently over on the ING DIRECT Facebook page. Seems they are saying some applicants are and some are not, eligible for vouchers even though staff have told customers previously they are entitled and are on the email list. Will be interesting to see the fall out….

    https://www.facebook.com/INGDIRECTAUS

  • those that haven't received their vouchers.

    send a message to ingdirect through the internet banking messaging system.

    they will send you the coupon details through there.

  • Anybody still not got theirs?

    • I just got mine today. I did message them online a couple of days ago so I'm not sure if that changed anything as I got it through email and not via message system.
