    One redemption per flybuys card?

      Definitely. Otherwise, too good to be true.

        It's official folks: Woolworths Rewards is too good to be true.

          Pretty sure Woolies only offers 1k points for a $50 eBay. Since the close relationship established between Coles/Flybuys and eBay, I doubt Woolies would run any eBay giftcard sale to help them.

            @Neoika: Is gilbarc saying WW pays points for every ebay giftcard purchase? (I can't find anything about that on the WW site.) I also can't find anything about 1000 points.

            • Can you explain?
            • And anyone know what 1000 WW points is worth?

            What I did find was the WW ebay gift card can only pay for items "… DIRECTLY listed on ebay AU."

            • I assume that means it cannot be used to pay for items on ebay USA/UK?
            • +2 votes

              @GregMonarch: 1000 WW points is worth about the same as 1000 Flybuys points. With both schemes you can cash in 2000/$10 so its about $5/1000 points.

              Gilbarc was saying that the previous WW gift card deal was similar with 2000 points for purchases for some cards (Uber, Netflix etc). You could do this multiple times. In this deal you can only do it once for 2000 FB Points.

              Neoika was pointing out that this one includes eBay, which can be used on a wider variety of goods.

              Hope this helps.

              I assume that means it cannot be used to pay for items on ebay USA/UK?

              That's correct, it's the same with any eBay Australia gift credit as far as I know.

              I have some of the gift cards sold by Paypal Digital Gifts that everyone used to buy during ebay UK deals, and in order to be able to use them:

              • The primary currency of the item must be AUD (so it must have been listed on eBay Australia rather than US/UK etc.)
              • You must be checking out through eBay Australia and not another eBay site.
              • Your primary registration address must be set to an Australian address (even if the two points above are true, I can't use the gift credit when my registration address is set to a UK address.)

                  @pennypincher98: The attendants mostly don't care. But you will get the odd one out that enforces the rule (out of 5 or 6 different coles I went to, only one did). But the point is the system allows you to use gift cards to purchase gift cards. Where as Woolies changed it so it doesn't work at all now.

                    Around me, the attendants do indeed care.

                    The system allows you to with the attendant's approval. I sure hope there's no identifying info with the attendants that do approve it because they are breaking company policy. It's an ACA story waiting to happen.

                    Rather than repeating your own success story, would you rather me link the many who have tried and failed? Or my own personal experiences?

                      There is.

                      Anyway you said "no you can't" and that's incorrect because you certainly can. But that's a different story to "you're not supposed/allowed to".

                      Rather than repeating your own success story, would you rather me link the many who have tried and failed?

                      Mate, I could say the same thing to you. Just read page 3 of this thread. There's already a few of us "success stories".

                        Exactly, a few success stories vs many that haven't.

                        I'll admit that I didn't realise you still actually could because every time I just got a very stern "it's against our policy" from multiple locations and demographics.
                        (I know the system allows it, but that's irrelevant - the system allows you to discount everything to free, good luck getting them to do that)

                  @pennypincher98: You go by what the general consensus is

                  And 99% of the time at self serve you can buy gc with gc

                  The woolworths system which doesnt work now says no you cant buy gc with gc in the t/cs, but 99% of the time it worked

                  So even if a staff says youre not allowed to or even it wont work,
                  IT DOES WORK

                  So just because it doesnt work for you doesnt mean its not going to work for everyone

                    Do I need to explain anymore?
                    It's in the terms they can reject. Once it goes further than the casual staff, it won't work.

                    Sure it works for some people now, but advertising that it does everywhere is probably not a smart move for one thing. Another thing is that it doesn't work for everyone

                    So just because it doesnt work for you doesnt mean its not going to work for everyone

                    This is probably the most idiotic thing I have ever read. Let me explain to you. Everyone includes all people. I don't even know why I'm bothering to reply at this point.

                    (btw I'm not a Coles manager I just go by the general consensus on mine and other experiences - there are many more it hasn't worked for in recent times than it has)
                    Don't try to undermine my experience. It's my experience. It's different to yours. You do realise how hypocritical you are appearing right?

I try to get a young casual to do it. In my experience yes the system allows it some operators refuse.

      Tried to purchase $50 Ultimate Him gift-card at woollies yesterday but point didn't appear on the screen, same with JB HI-FI gift card.
      Rep told me to go through the transaction and it would appear on my WR account but that didn't happen.
      Also, when try to purchase Netflix gift card it shows points on screen straight away. So looks like woollies is only good for the cards displayed in catalogue.

      Woolies offers are undoubtedly much better because of how many cards you can buy. You can easily get a whole year's worth of Netflix discounted, for example.
