    I'm looking at the VIC catalogue and its only 1000 bonus points.

    •  

      It is 2000 points in NSW catalogue (or mistake?).

  •  

    Bargain?

    •  

      Worth $10, 2000 points.

    •  

      2000 points = $10 off your shopping

    •  

      If you know how recursion works, it can make a handsome money for you. 😉

      •  

        Have to be careful because the points are credited to your Woolworths Rewards Card, it is easy to limit the bonus to one transaction only. Need to check the T&Cs.

      •  

        Not in Victoria! :(
        (That was in response to making money not the T&Cs)

    Not a bad way to get some cheap qantas points. Effectively paying $6.95 for 870 points. Works out to be 0.79c per point (plus the credit card points you get for spend at woolies 1 point + per $)

    Would be very worth it if there was a way to convert these gift cards to cash but I dont know any ways to do it.

      Buy Opal cards and refund?

      •  

        Any issues with sending 100s of Opal cards for refund?

      •  

        i think you're onto a lucrative moneymaking tactic - use discounted egift cards to top-up opal and refund

      • +3 votes

        Sounds pretty good actually, but would probably be a pretty big effort. After accounting for credit card points (i have velocity platinum card which gets 1.25 virgin points per $) it works out at 1003 points (870 qantas and 133 virgin) points for every one of these gift cards purchased - so 1003 points for $6.95 which equates to 0.59c per point. Its a great purchase price but you would have to do it at least 50 times to make it worthwhile. In comparison, this credit card can get you 90k points at 0.15 cents per point.

        Wouldnt have an issue buying multiple cards from woolies, would be concerned lodging multiple opal refunds with the government though.

        •  

          870 Qantas points? How are you calculating that per card?

          • +2 votes

            @Hallaj: The 870 points is equivalent to 2000 woolworths rewards points.

      •  

        Don't bother. I did this last time and it took months to get my money back after emailing and calling constantly. Refund was over 1k.

    •  

      If you can do it, please let me know.I would be swimming in cash

      If you have you own EFTPOS machine, you can put these cards into your account with just ~$0.25 processing fee per transaction.
      So net profit is $2.8 per card.

      But ATO may want to eat into your cake too…

    1000 points for WA

      Ok,maybe it's not so good a deal after all, for 1000 points. ($5 WW)

      10 cards per transaction

    •  

      The system allows a max of 10 cards per transactions but at the same time there's also another restriction of $1000 per transaction before a manager is required to proceed and you need to hand your details over to produce a compliant tax invoice.

      •  

        you need to hand your details over to produce a compliant tax invoice.

        It asks if you want to enter your tax details, not required.
        However, at the manned checkouts, they seem to put your license number into the ABN details or so

        •  

          This must've changed, the last time I had this happen was 2 years ago and it would not let the manager proceed without all the information fields filled in.

    •  

      just went to the Lane Cove store, all sold out…

  •  

    Why the additional $6.95?

    •  

      ‘Activation/Card’ fee. Westfield does the same thing if you buy them at Coles/Woolies

      • +2 votes

        Oh that means benefit is only $3.05 as you have to pay $6.95 after getting $10 worth points. Pass

        • +2 votes

          Yes

  •  

    Sorry, n00b question time:
    Do you have to provide identification to purchase or activate these cards?

    •  

      No; they're activated at time of purchase. The points go to your Woolworths Rewards account

    •  

      No, your identity is safe and sound with ASIC

  •  

    I could be wrong.
    But there are some of these cards that charge a fee when you use them.
    I know the pre paid visa ones that you load up the amount you like had a small fee each time it was used.
    Not sure if same with these

    •  

      Any fees at point of purchase should be the same as any other EFTPOS transactions (eg savings/cheque transactions)

    Just why among all states in Aus, NSW get the higher points? I'm filing discrimination case 😂

  •  

    WW Bankstown advertising it as 1000 points only. Didn't try checking out though.

  •  

    Where do people who buy many actually spend these as you cannot use them online or for tax etc?

    •  

      Anywhere that takes EFTPOS

        Have you tried bills at post?

      I think a good option I’ve not tried is opal top up of $100 every 2-3 weeks, if you catch train.
      I agree though, I presume you have to put in pin each transaction
