Cashrewards Launches eGift Card Portal: Jetstar 3%, EB 5%, Boost 5%, SCA 5%, Myer 3%, Rebel 5%, Hoyts 5%, BCF 5%, WISH 5% + More

3780

Hi everyone. We've just launched our brand new eGift card portal with 29 discounted cards ranging in savings of up to 5% off. While it may not seem much, in my opinion any saving is a good saving. Please note that apart from WISH cards, these will not stack with cashback if/when used for redemption via Cashrewards (also no stacking with refer-a-friend). Delivery is conveniently via email, and from tests we've conducted, most are being delivered within a few minutes (WISH remains unchanged). We welcome any feedback on this new site. Please check back regularly as we'll be adding a heap more in the new year. Thanks for the continued support :)

    The Jetstar/MYER ones seem to be a bit low. It would be cheaper to buy the Woolworths eGift at 5% off then purchase the physical Jetstar/MYER gift cards in store.

      Convenient if for whatever reason you need it within a few hours and you can't make it to a store but otherwise I agree.

      Pretty sure you can't use a gift card to buy gift cards. Although you may get lucky at the checkout.

        Have been doing it occasionally; last time was only 2 weeks ago and can confirm no issues.

        •  

          The Woolies self serve registers (and most staff members too) let you pay for physical gift cards using a wish egift card.

          However, this is against the terms and conditions of the egift card… So sooner or later Woolies will update their software and it won't be possible.

          In the meantime it can be hit and miss. Best option is to use a self serve register and hope a manager doesn't see you

          @valuehunter: I do wonder why the system hasn't already been configured to reject GC payments with GC though.

          @valuehunter:

          While it is explicitly listed as a condition for Coles, I cannot find that restriction for Woolworths. Do you have any link or quote from the Woolworths T&C’s ?

          Shhhhhh the less we talk about it the better ^^

        •  

          Just did it yesterday without any issue, and the staff was happy to help (authorise the purchase).

          Max. GC you can purchase is 10 cards for each transaction, no limitation on the total amount.

          Under clause 6.5
          “6.5 WISH Gift Cards cannot be used towards the purchase of any Gift Cards sold through
          WISH Gift Card participating stores.”

          Updated t&c’s in Sep17, with this part added I believe. Can’t confirm because I can’t get the old pages up with google cache :(

        Not sure why you get negged. I tried last time and they refused and tell me you cannot use gift cards to get gift cards.

          I bought gift card using gift card at the staff checkout without issues.

        •  

          Not sure why you get negged.

          So we're all just meant to assume it can't be done because two people couldn't do it?

        •  

          @Lorindor: But by the same logic can you not say just because two people report they can do it, then we're all meant to assume it can be done?

          @illumination:

          Every time a gift card deal is posted, the same question is asked and answered by multiple stating that it is indeed possible, and the same two people comment saying they couldn't do it.

        • +1 vote

          @Lorindor: Oh look I know it is possible. I have paid for gift cards with gift cards multiple times. I was just questioning the logic in your previous comment.

          However, I think the people above have so far all failed to provide some more context around this.

          I don't know what the official rule is, but paying for GCs with GCs is probably discouraged and probably not allowed by the book. I believe staff are supposed to tell you that you are not allowed to pay for GCs with GCs (as implied by this comment), and this explains why you always get people saying you can't.

          The important thing to note is the system itself does not disallow it, and if you can get away with it without staff noticing (or the particular staff member being unaware), then you're all good to go.

          The newer machines at Woolworths have been upgraded to prompt the cashier to "approve" the transaction if it's a GC transaction (like Coles). I have also noticed some signage at self checkout at some Woolies saying "all GC purchases to be made at the service desk".

          I have personally found it much easier to complete GC purchases paying with GC at Woolies compared to Coles, even though the "rule" is the same.


          edit: What this guy said (but in less words)

        •  

          Can’t use gift cards at Target. Their human checkout had a specific message come up to block me. Target is bizarre though. Tried even to block me from using a digital image of my gift card sayings it’s not allowed. Argued and won :)

        •  

          @Ozbfy: I haven't seen a Target with self check out so I'm not surprised because no matter it will require human intervention.

        pretty sure you can, infact at woolies you can buy gc at self checkout, doesn't even need auth like you do at Coles.

      This. Plus the perk of earning 3 MR points per dollar spent when paying with AMEX Platinum Edge!

      Piggy backing onto my own comment. I just did a comparison between Cash Rewards and some other platforms. It's pretty clear that if another competitor is offering the same eGift Card, then it would be either cheaper there or same price. The only benefit I see is that Cash Rewards has a larger range (but can be nullified by purchasing the physical gift cards at Woolworths in store using the eGift Card at 5% off).

    •  

      isn't there a fee to buy the card, or has that been removed?

    these will not stack with cashback if/when used for redemption via Cashrewards (also no stacking with refer-a-friend)

    Isn't a gift card technically a form of payment? I'm curious why there's no cashback for it

    •  

      cashrewards will get the cashback

      • +4 votes

        That is totally false. In most instances, retailers don't like discounting at both ends so they pass the discount on once.

        • +2 votes

          Wait, so you refer someone to JB HIFI and they pay via gift card, you pay out customer and you don't get to take a %? Plenty of my online orders have been with gift card payments.

          I dont think they process them any different - in fact some go through their same payment portals.

          You sure you don't get a referral % when someone pays with a gift card? Doesnt affect us as customers, but nice to know.

          Im not having a stab at you mate but i would be really surprised if cashrewards wasnt taking a cut ontop of the cashback / discount we get

        • +2 votes

          @cumova: from my understanding of how things work, the retailer pays cashrewards a % Commission for bringing them a sale. Cashrewards passes on a portion of this to you and both parties end up winning.
          I can't see how that is a bad thing.
          When paying by gift card, the retailer might have a flag for this in the system and not pay anything to CR. Of course then CR wont give you cashback as they haven't received trailing commission themselves.

        •  

          @MathNerd:

          hi. i understand and not saying its a bad thing.
          just saying there are a lot of places where you can get a discounted gift card and I dont think these places would be offering products for free unless they are getting some sort of kickback

    Suncorp Benefits (Just need a suncorp bank account) is better

    • Flight Centre Bonus Offer 3% off, plus a BONUS $50 eGift Card
    • Rebel 10%

    Great to see more competition. Hopefully Prezzee will follow with discounts or Cashrewards will come out with an app!

      There is one now. If another competitor is offering the same eGift Card, then it would be either cheaper there or same price.

    • vote, but even insurers or Electricity company rewards provide way better discounts. TA you need to talk to Reward Gateway and ask for volume discounts for 1M+ $ worth of GCs per month to easily get 10% EB Games, 7% JB, etc etc. This is Ok start but we have very high expectations of you ;P

    Can you tax deduct purchases made with a gift card?

    •  

      As long as you still get a receipt/tax invoice with all of the required details. Of course, if you've purchased the gift cards at a discount you're supposed to adjust for that though - you can't claim a deduction for more than you've actually paid.

    •  

      Of course. Payment method means nothing - the total invoice cost is the only relevant thing here.

  •  

    When will there be jbhifi gift card avaiable? Thanks

    But you need to join, unlike that one yesterday where you chose the card and pay, no joining up etc

    Thanks TA and Andrew and all at CR for this :)
    I just did a trial order and you guys accept AmEx without a surcharge too which is amazing, I don't know of anywhere else to do this apart from WISH :)
    So collect Ascent points and get discounts? That's what I call a double win :)

    •  

      As in most other places charge for AMEX orders right?

      Keep in mind it's still better value to take additional discount by buying (e.g. Myer) for 10% off via Entertainment Book vs this at 3%.

    Am new to this eGift Card stuff..
    Can I buy an EB Games gift card through this and then use it to buy something in store? Or do I have to buy through their online shop?
