Officeworks Gift Card Question


Quick question - I've got a Officeworks gift card which is valid for 2 years from the date of activation. I was wondering if I can use it another store such as Coles? Or if there's a way to somehow get it converted to a Coles gift card.

As I don't shop at Officeworks much and would rather use the value on the gift card for something else such as groceries, fuel etc.

  • As Officeworks is part of the coles/myer group, I wound imagine that they stock such giftcards near the registers. I'm not totally sure so please let me know if they don't stock coles/myer giftcards.

    If it's an Officeworks only card then it can only be used at Officeworks. If it's a Coles Group and Myer card, it can be used at any of those stores.

    Most employees wont let you buy a gift card with a gift card … you have you be slightly sneaky about it, eg get a blank visa debit card and stick it on top or just print out a visa logo and stick it on top.

    • Not sure why I'm getting neg votes … if they merchants wants to stop gift card purchases with a gift card, they should build it into their point-of-sale system, not this discretionary system where an employee does what he feels like at the time.

      1. Lots of gift cards T&C don't explicitly prohibit purchasing other gift cards, it's just a policy that employees make up.
      2. There's enough times when employees allow it through anyway or don't realize
      3. Instead of sticking something on top, you could just scratch off/fade the front printing or just conceal it with your hand. The net effect if the same, it might just make you feel better.
  • I've used Myer only gift cards to purchase Coles Myer gift cards in store. I don't think it's a huge deal shrugs

  • Gift cards have a good resell value.

    I've got a blue colored Officeworks gift card which I can't use as Coles etc. since it's a Officeworks only gift card.

    What's the cheapest way for me to somehow convert it to a gift card I can use elsewhere at stores like Coles or even gas stations? When I checked online Officeworks sell Visa prepaid gift cards which have a fee of $5.95. So I was thinking of buying one of those with my Officeworks gift cards.

      As far as i'm aware you can't buy gift cards with gift cards, unfortunately.


      Buy the store out and then sell it outside for desperate kids for 2c. EZ 100% gains. Best investment you ever made, even Buffet would be proud :')

    • Sell it on the OZB classifieds. Officeworks cards are good because they price match and can often be used for great stack deals. Coles cards can often be bought at a 5-6% discount from the supplier.

    • I've successfully bought a Coles Myer Gift Card with an Officeworks Gift Card but that was about four years ago so dunno if it works now

  • Thanks for all your help everyone. Copped up the $5.95 fee and bought the $100 visa gift card and paid for it with my $106 officeworks gift card.
