  • How can our Price Promise benefit you? Here's an example of how it works:
  • On Monday, you head in to your nearest Supercheap Auto store and buy a set of car seat covers for the full price of $50. On Wednesday, the same car seat covers are in the Supercheap Auto catalogue for $35. A credit for $15 is automatically put on your club card. On Saturday, you visit your nearest store and put your $15 credit towards some new floor mats to match your new seat covers!
  • Joining Supercheap Auto Club Plus is quick and easy, and costs just $5. Plus, join today, and you'll get $10 start-up credit loaded onto your card - on us

    great reminder post

    [$5 Profit]

    pretty sure you can't redeem it for cash, so it's not a profit…

    • -4

      spend $5 and get something for $10+. Sounds like profit to me uncle jv

      • +17

        Nope, a profit a financial gain.

        You can't redeem the credit for cash.

          As far as im aware, you use cash to buy merchandise

        • @easternculture:

          you use cash to buy merchandise

          that's one use for cash. or you can save it. or you can invest it.

          still, you can't redeem the credit here for cash, so no profit…

          @jv:

          if you invest cash, then you cant spend^ it

          ^depending on T&C of agreement

          Oxford defines a profit as:
          "A financial gain, especially the difference between the amount earned and the amount spent in buying, operating, or producing something"

          As Oxford is more authoritative on matters of word definition, I'm satisfied that it's a profit.

        • @togaboyau:

          A financial gain

          yep, as I said above… so no profit here…

          Please don't get me started

        • Person has $1 worth of BitCoin that was earnt.
          Person buys a Chuppa Chup for $1 with their BitCoin.
          Person sells Chuppa Chup to Chuppa Chump for $5.

          $4 profit. No money exchanged before sale to Chuppa Chump.

          Now replace BitCoin with Supercheap Credit. Argument still valid.

          @togaboyau:

          Who ya calling chump, chimp?

        • +4

          @togaboyau:

          Argument still valid.

          Nope… You took the analogy too far when you sold the chuppa chup.

          Here, you just get credit. You have not received the $5.

          If you use the credit to purchase an item and then sell it, that is very different from what we are discussing here…

        • @togaboyau: Supercheap Auto are essentially using an incentive in order to generate loyalty, attention, publicity and reward behaviour etc.
          If you go through their turnstile to claim that $5 benefit, you may be induced to make further, larger purchases, whether you need the items or not.
          In my experience, I have been very happy with the customer service at my preferred Supercheap Auto store and a $5 inducement would do little, if that customer service was not there first.
          I have also bought things I have not needed like rolls of electrical tape.

          @jv:

          Point being that the $5 still had enough value (like the BitCoin) that you were able to convert it to resources, kinda like currency really.

        • @jv:

          I'll give you a plus for your witty comment and your 100th silver medal. Well done sir.

      I like Johnny Cash.

  • Do you have a link to the catalogue?

  • You also get a free watch or a free hat, but possibly only if you sign up in store. Don't go out of your way though, they're not amazing.

  • +1

    Pretty sure this is just the standard offering from SCA. Though, perhaps it was only a $5 credit to offset the membership fee when I signed up.

    • no, it's always been "pay $5 get $10 credit"

    "On Monday, you head in to your nearest Supercheap Auto store and buy a set of car seat covers for the full price of $50. On Wednesday, the same car seat covers are in the Supercheap Auto catalogue for $35. A credit for $15 is automatically put on your club card. On Saturday, you visit your nearest store and put your $15 credit towards some new floor mats to match your new seat covers!"

    This sort of thing is bullshit.

    It's just trying to keep you shopping at Supercheap.

    They could give you back the difference, but no, they give it to you as credit, so in order to make use of it, you have to buy something else at Supercheap.

    It's a crappy deal in my opinion.

    • +1

      well yes, it's essentially a loyalty club (i've heard a staff member describe it as such to a customer) and intended to benefit regular customers. or those who suffer from bad timing, i.e. buying something at a 20% storewide sale only to find it goes on sale in the next catalogue period for a bigger %, getting store credit back is better than nothing. tell me which other stores will give you back the difference?

      and occasionally, club plus members often find $5 credit in their accounts.

      • Do they actually notify you via email of a credit (difference refund) or do you have to keep checking your account to see if you're in luck?

        • +1

          yes, they email you when you get refunds back.

      Q: Would you rather not have the extra $15 to spend on something else?

  • I guess I will sign up for the $5 but I doubt I will buy exclusively from Supercheap, I found Autobarn cheaper last time I needed oil.

    • Autobarn have a better range of oils

  • can the credit be used to obtain 2 memberships for 'friends'?
    can multiple memberships be used for the purchase of a single item?

  • +1

    Let see if I understood the deal, Monday pay $50 Wednesday come back for $15 credit, Saturday use credit. Why do I need to pay $5 and travel 3 times. Can't I just buy the Seat Covers for $35 on Wednesday?

    • Because this way they make/keep more money.
      This way they sell the item for $50 to everyone.
      Later they give out a $15 'credit' (no actual money lost yet).
      Then only a small percentage of people will actually come back to the store and spend their credit.
      Out of those that spend their credit only a percentage will spend the exact amount of credit, most will spend either more or less.
      Unused credits expire after 28 days.

  • signed up in store over 3 months ago…
    … after numerous emails to SCA membership card has still not been activated (you need to activate it to get the $10 voucher!)
    just spam in my mailbox every week.
    more like a $5 LOSS and some in my case.

  • Can you use the $10 instantly online?
    edit: yes, on verifying email

    • How after verifying before you got the $10 ? And is it just a number and PIN via email ?

      Update: I see it on my loyalty credits but don't see any ID or PIN to use at check out … Don't tell me we need to wait for a physical card in the mail …

      • +1

        if you signed up online and want to use those credits in-store, just tell the cashier that and give them the email address you signed up with. they can look it up that way.

  • does it only work on full price item? can someone please confirm?

    • +1

      you can use your sca credits on any item

      • thanks mate.
