  • Does Amazon gift stack with cash back? And any delivery fees?

  • Does this deal or gift cards have expiry?

  • Are these digital delivery or post?

  • what is the total number of ebay giftcards that can be used for 1 transaction? 5 or 8?

    • 19 and a code . 20 without .

      I know Ebay T&C's say 8 :)

      • promotion code + up to 19 giftcards? wow.

        yes ebay t&c states 8. mmmm.

      • The limit they set in the system is not based on number of cards but based on the amount.
        - $1500 per transaction.
        - $2000 per day which means the 2nd transaction in the same day you can only use $500 gc
        - $5000 per month.

  • Many people had to wait weeks for Austraia Post to send their cards in the last deal so don't expect them soon.

  • What do you mean ebay fixed the giftcard uk loophole?

  • Thanks mate, bought some amazon gift cards. Expiry on those are 10 years!

  • If someone is planning to buy above $200 and is planning to use it today. Can only activate during week days.

    For your protection, gift card orders $200 and over in total are required to be activated once you have received your order. Call 1800 331 794 between 8.30am-5pm AEST, Monday-Friday to activate your gift cards.

    • Ummmm max value of eBay card you can purchase here is $100. So don’t need to make phone call

      • Last time I bought $300 ebay gift cards. I received six $50 cards and I had to call them to activate. They said I have to wait another 24 hours after the activation to be able to use the cards.

        • Ya they tell you 24 hrs but mine got activated immediately

        • Must be annoying providing serial numbers for all 6 cards over phone for activation?

          • @BongoOB: Annoying part was spending 15 mins in the call while they figured out who does this. No one seems to know. So when you call you can tell them to send to phillatic team

          • @BongoOB:

            Must be annoying providing serial numbers for all 6 cards over phone for activation?

            No they just do it by order number so one number for all cards in the order


      I think they're all physical cards aren't they?
      Its AusPost who knows when they'll turn up.

  • I just read received a shopback confirmation of $0 tracked after buying $200 worth of gift cards. Any idea what that's about? I went through the Android app like I always do.


      Yeah me too

      We've checked and it seems the rate wasn't set properly on AP's end. We've just done a quick fix on our end and you should see the correct amount soon. Due to caching you won't see the correct amount right away. Thanks for flagging this however.

      • That's Storerep, my purchase of $1000 GF also tracked with $0 :(
        Awaiting correction


        Thank you, same happened for me too when I used the browser extension. Hopefully it gets rectified properly. :)

  • Yes very annoy process. Also risk of not having cashback

  • What is the definition of "Amazon credit"?
    If you use a $100 amazon gift card on a $70 purchase - does the $30 remainder become amazon credit?

  • My $100 gift card for tracked as $0 cashback.

    Did this happen to anyone else?

    • every single one of my cashback via SB for aust post has had problems, ranging from not showing up, wrong amounts, tracked but not approved

      but everytime , a quick msg to the rep on here, and its fixed pronto

      shoot him a msg and he will sort it out without fuss

      • Dodgy deal if you need a rep to fix it up. They are counting on a percentage of people not following the shop back requirements for eligibility, simply forgetting about it, can’t be bothered chasing up the money or correct amount. That’s their business model for maximising profits

        • i will admit, it seems teh aus post ones are always having problems, my other merchants seem to be fine,

          not sure if its coincidence or because the cashbacks are higher…..

    • Same with me… Hopefully a rep responds to this

    • +1 vote

      Investigating this at the moment, yes we do see the transactions are coming in at $0 at the moment. It appears the rate on AP's end hasn't been configured properly. We'll let you guys know once we've rolled out a fix.

      • You think you’d have fixed this after what happened with the same offer Post had a couple of months ago. I’m still waiting for that cashback…

        • These are issues on their end but we have to do something on our end to temporarily resolve it…

          waiting for that cashback…

          As in hasn't tracked, in investigation or pending?

        • A couple of months and still waiting? Wow… I rather not support these types of businesses and hope they die off. I much prefer retailers deal directly with customers to get the best possible deal without third party profiteering

          • @BongoOB:

            1. The retailers don't give any 'best possible deal'. ;-D (We're getting a cashback they otherwise wouldn't give to anyone.)
            2. The fault is in AP's system - not SB's. So I'm unsure why we'd want them to die off, because then we're back at point 1 again. i.e. Even if we only received half our cashbacks, and never bothered to dispute the missing ones, receiving 50% of them is better than 0%.
            • @GregMonarch: I don’t agree with you. There is always a bottom line and retailers factor in the cash back offer when setting the price of their items. Reality is you are paying a slightly higher premium for a cash back that takes months to claim.

              • @BongoOB: Maybe I'm not understanding what you've written, but the cashbacks I've received from shopback and cashrewards were not available to other buyers - and I wouldn't have received any discount either if SB & CR didn't exist.

                i.e. If they both disappeared, retailers wouldn't suddenly drop their prices a few % for everyone. In fact they could do that right now if they wanted to - which would eliminate the coding required to report tracking back to SB & CR, plus drive them out of business. Yet they don't. I'm also not seeing increased prices because of it. The number of 'cashbackers' is so small, it wouldn't be increasing prices - the extra sales they otherwise wouldn't have made cover that tiny % 'lost' anyway.

                • @GregMonarch: It can be considered as advertisement cost which is similar to what they pay for Google or Facebook. These cashback site will do the advertisement to promote them.

                  • @samehada: Well, yeah - there's a few different ways to look at it. Those customers returning in the future too… I just don't get what he means by retailers factoring in the cash back offer. i.e. Costing everyone more is what that means.

                    Products didn't change when SP & CR came along, and will be the same when they're gone. Retailers aren't going to think, "Oh, SB & CR have gone, so let's knock 2.5% off everything for everyone now." Neither would they be thinking, "CR & SB are costing us 5% cashback on 0.00000001% of our customers Australia-wide - let's put prices up for everyone by 1% to recoup that cost."

                    It brings in customers, it costs them 5 cents to sell an item they otherwise wouldn't have sold, and makes $xx less 5% profit, etc.

                    I dunno… Maybe I'm wrong.

          • @BongoOB: "I much prefer retailers deal directly with customers to get the best possible deal without third party profiteering"

            Do you have homeloan? Bank do not give you lower rate if you go to them directly instead of brokers.

            Why? Because you don't bite the hand that feed you. Shopback is one of many channels for business to get customer.

            • @samehada: You’re probably getting a worse deal with a broker - been there, done that. On the odd occasion you might get an OK deal but most of the time brokers push a deal that is better for the banks and not you as they get a higher commission. In any case it’s best to shop around.

              • @BongoOB: You completely don't get my post. If you compare the same deal with the same bank via broker or go directly to that bank you won't get lower rate.

                You are talking about shopping around that is comparing Apple and Orange.

                If you've already done your homework and ask the broker for the specific bank deal you will get the same deal.

    • We've just done a quick fix on our end and you should see the correct amount soon. Due to caching you won't see the correct amount right away. Nevertheless thanks for flagging this.

  • The shopback extension on Fiefox is not recognising Auspost


    Purchases paid with gift cards/Amazon credit & Promo codes or Voucher codes not approved by ShopBack

    Can Shopback ops confirm this?
    Otherwise saving 5% on GC but lossing the 12% cash back?

      It's best to refer to our website for the most up to date T&Cs as that post was not submitted by us and it was made more than 6 months ago.

      Current T&Cs:

      Cashback is only payable on order value (excludes taxes, shipping and packaging costs) and is valid on orders paid for with gift cards (not orders with Amazon credit)

      As such orders paid with gift cards are valid. Do note that gift cards purchased from AusPost are physical gift cards which will be sent in the mail and as such will not arrive on time to stack with today's 12% Amazon promo.


        Thanks rep :)
        Time to stack up GCs!!

      • Hi rep, So if I use $100 gift card for $70 purchase, I will have $30 remaining as Amazon credit. For my 2nd purchase of $30 I will not get Cashback for using Amazon credit? Have I understood right?
        If above is true we all have to be careful to use gift card only if we are ordering something with exact value.

  • Do I still get my cash back through Shopback if I use the Amazon gift cards when purchasing at Amazon through Shopback . Thanks

    I am still waiting….

  • Hi, new to eBay gift cards. Could i use this with a promocode sale? Cheers

    • Yes

      You can spend more than one gift card at a time, or use a gift card on top of a voucher or discount offer. At checkout, put in one code at a time in the Gift cards, vouchers, coupons section and select Apply after each one to update your order total. You can use up to 8 codes per transaction.

  • Eager to buy up some GC but I'm a bit nervous because of all these reports of missing or incorrect cashback. Is it fixed yet?

  • so this is the best option left if you are after ebay GC

    • no. the system wont let you buy gc with gc afaik

      1. 4-5% off Coles eGC for payment option.

      2. Woolworths Team member 5% off discount plus HSBC VISA PayWave 2% cashback, this combo makes it nearly 7% off (6.9% off).

        1. Coles gc is not easy to get and there is limit as well. I.e $500 per week to $500 per month.
        2. The last time I use hsbc paywave I got blocked after 6-7 times so it also an arbitrary limit. Even I buy again next day I got declined after just 1 tap.

        HSBC also has limit of $2500 spend per month ($50 cashback)

        What you said is good in theory only.

        • Thanks for sharing experience, I only did max 2 times a day.

          Only good if you are work or live near a Woolies so you can spread out the frequency over many days.

          • @Neoika: Catalogue sale is only 7 days and with the popular cards it will be out of stock after the first 2-3days.

            Not to mention your wasted time and petrol cost to go back to WW. I may not worth that saving.
