    Does anyone know what happened to Being Askhole?

    •  

      Apparently not. His absence was unannounced.

      I've been wondering where he's gone myself. Hope he's ok.

      •  

        Yes it is a bit concerning.

        •  

          Wow, my comment was marked as off topic?

          @aja12: yes it is…

          @aja12: These Gift Cards seem to be a decent saving. Let's hope he returns soon with a happy explanation.

          @PJC: 15% off is fantastic value. Ok, I better stop asking about the person who posted nearly 1000 deals since January and then just vanished. Yep, hopefully he’s ok.

        • -3 votes

          @Enjj0y: Its not off topic - he posted dozens of deals each week, including many Woolworths deals, and then just vanished. This is a deal from Woolworths. Being Askhole posted Woolworths deals. Totally related.

          @aja12: nope. When you talking about things not related to this deal, it is off topic.

        • +1 vote

          @Letrico: You’ve posted 4 deals in 7 years. Being Askhole posted 1000 in 7 months. Everyone should be asking where he is in every post, he was an asset to the Ozbargain community.

          Your comment is off topic too then? It has nothing to do with the deal?

        •  

          @aja12: This 15% off deal is getting really popular. He is indeed an extraordinarily prolific deal poster and hopefully he will soon resume.

        •  

          @aja12: replying to you about this topic is indeed off topic. If you are discussing about this deal then it is not off topic.

          Why does posting deal got to do about this deal?

          Just because someone have more post means discussing that person is not off topic?

          If you are interested about him then make a post on the forums or pm him directly. Don't ride on a upcoming hot deal just to get attention.

    wth do these stack with staff discounts? I gotta ask a mate for his :D

  •  

    Nice. Will be getting the credit for current game sales.

  • +13 votes

    Great deal.
    For those into the stacking, an example calculation below:

    • A $60 Nintendo eShop Gift Card will scan at $51 at the checkout.
    • Pay this $51 with a 5% (or higher) discounted WISH eGift Card.
    • This WISH eGift card (assuming it has exactly $51 on it) will have cost you $48.45 (at most).
    • That's a discount of $11.55 (at least), which translates to a discount percentage of 19.25% (at least).

    Loving this.

    •  

      My head hurts trying to figure out if the last bullet point should say "at least" or "at most" in parenthesis xD

    •  

      Not sure where to get higher than 5% discount on Wish gift cards.

    •  

      Great run down, do you know how that would work with staff discount?

      Name checks out

    • +1 vote

      Most self checkouts do not allow you to buy gift cards with wish e-giftcard or any giftcard of sorts unless authorised by staff with an ID scan. So it's YMMV. You could get rejected

      •  

        I've done it a few times with iTunes gift cards without any issues. Might help I'm getting served by a young casual every time who don't really care.

    •  

      It's also worth noting the gold coins you will receive when purchasing a game, which gives even more savings, so may even edge out some physical titles prices when taking that into consideration. 5c to the dollar for digital vs 1c to the dollar on physical.

      •  

        I would think the choice between digital and physical is more about the trade off between convenience and resale/transferability. Obviously price also comes into it when the price difference is large, but a $2.60 difference in gold coins earning for a $60 game isn't going to sway me one way or the other.

        But I guess if you are completely indifferent between digital and physical, and just want the absolute cheapest between the two, it could be the deciding factor!

        •  

          Oh yeah of course, if there are other factors to weigh in then of course, choose based on that, but if Price is your only driver, this is a consideration to include. I personally always choose digital for indy, and Physical for AAA- but I resell my games a lot so it makes sense for me to do this.

    I went to the two Woolworth's here in Perth city and none of them had the Nintendo cards on display. Anyone seen them in the wild?

    What is EA Origin Gift Cards?

    Energy Australia? Origin?

  •  

    Anyone know if the Origin cards can be used for the EA Access sub?

  •  

    Wait, I thought you couldn't buy a gift card with a gift card? Am I missing something?

    • +11 votes

      Yes, you're missing something. Savings.

    • +5 votes

      You can. It’s apparently a bit hit and miss sdepending on the cashier but I’ve never been turned down.

      I like to do it on self serve though. If you scan the gift card, it requires store assistance to proceed. Wait for them to come over and give approval. Then checkout and pay with gift card.

      That way, no one realises what you have done and you dont get that off chance of someone saying no

      • +2 votes

        That's interesting.

      • +1 vote

        It's a YMMV because some staff are aware where as some don't. The best thing to do is buy bunch of groceries and chuck a gift card in there. They might just forget about it mate

        That's from my experience. They will know you are buying other things with it and will not refuse you

        Buying from self checkouts even worse because they will know you need authorisation for it and depends who it is they will not let you

        I had been turned down before at self checkouts

        •  

          That’s why I like self checkout. Because the authorisation is just for the card itself. Scan card, they authorise it, they walk away, pay with gift card. In saying that, never had an issue with regular checkout

        •  

          Yes but are you hinting that they do not check why they need to authorise and simply do so because they think the machine had a problem?

        •  

          @neonlight: no? I'm just saying they are usually more than happy to authorise gift card purchase on self checkout and you can then use whatever payment method you want

        •  

          @cruizerdog: got it. Yeah I must have had some bad luck or the checkout grumpy lady doesn't like me. Got blacklisted lol

    •  

      Depends on the cashier, but I made the mistake of buying a woollies Gift Card and not the wish Gift Card, was declined at the register.

  •  

    This to combine with Nintendo eShop sale is good deal

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/393361

  •  

    So the $15 cards aren't discounted? It's only a saving of $2.25 but wanted to buy a few for gifts.

  •  

    Anyone thinking about the new ea Origin premium subscription? Dunno if its worth it. Or if it’s a good idea to stack up on some Origin cards to try

    • +1 vote

      Didnt you just say Origin cards cant be used for the sub?

      Wait DW I got it haha, yeah I will be trying it out regardless, the EA premium sub

      •  

        I am keen to this idea.

      •  

        no you are right. i can understand why origin gift cards cant be used for xbox ea access (its on the xbox) but you apparently cant even use it for the PC origin access either. whats the point of an origin digital currency then? seems like a dodgy system where people mistakenly buy their store credit and then have to spend it on their full priced games to use it up

    Woolworths Arkaba in SA had heaps of $60 Nintendo cards this morning, no $30 ones

  • +1 vote

    Grabbed a couple of $60 Nintendo eShop cards at Woolworths Hollywood Plaza in Adelaide, there was still at least 1 or 2 $60 ones and a couple of $30 ones.

  •  

    Grabbed some on my way into work this morning :D

    Switch newbie here, can we not redeem codes online via a browser in Australia? Do we have to do it via the switch itself? I noticed we don't have a proper storefront or way to purchase games either compared to the American online shop..

  •  

    My local wws have at least 50 of each card on the shelf. I just brought 2 x60 with wish gift card

  •  

    I think there was 2x $60 nintendo ones left when I went to Chadstone.

  •  

    South Melbourne Woolies doesn’t look to have much stock.

    Looks like 1 x $60 one left when I grabbed mine.

  •  

    Picked one up! There were around 12 x $30 and 9 x $60 left at Gordon Woolies!

  • +4 votes

    Strangely, not with the other gift cards at my local but behind the kiosk with the mobile phones. Thanks OP.

  •  

    Had to hide 2 $60 on the store the night before and it paid off cause when I got to my local Woolies after work they only had 1 $60 left. I also used the e-gift card at self service for further discount. Win win

  •  

    Purchased $300 for $240, not too shabby. Mario Tennis Aces is mine mine mine. The rest will be used for future games like Mario Kart 9.

  •  

    For those who want to buy origin access using the ea wallet fund, the answer is yes, i got a answer from https://answers.ea.com/t5/Origin-Access/Buying-Origin-Access...
    Will go to woolworth today after i got my discounted wish gift card. Need 2×$40 and 2×$25 cards for the 1 year origin access premier.

  •  

    Great deal! For those from WA living North of the river, I found plenty of e-shop cards at Woolworths in Dog Swamp. Both Woolworths in the CBD and the one in the Mezz Mt Hawthorn didn't have any left. Also I was able to use my e-gift card at the self-serve checkout, just asked the staff member nearby to authorize the cards and she walked away as I selected my option to pay :)

  •  

    Just left Woolworths Fairfield Heights, no $30 Nintendos left. There are 2 x $60 ones though

    Anyone know if there are any $30 ones around Sydney?

    I haven't seen any Nintendo cards at all with two Woolies close to me I guess it's either too popular or they actually don't stock them
