15% off Nintendo eShop, TCN The Kids/Teen/Him/Her/Cinema/Pamper/Pub&Bar/Restaurant, Google Play Gift Cards @ Coles

8329

Saw this today at Coles.

15% off gift cards including Nintendo eShop, The Kids/Teen/Him/Her/Cinema/Pamper/Pub/Bar/Restaurant gift cards and Google Play gift cards ($50-100 only)
Starting 25/11 ending 1/12

UPDATE: cards not activate or not scanning/discount at checkout. Coles are pulling all cards out and refund. Some people reported some cards are fine. Wait until this is resolved. Such a shame.

UPDATE 2: some people reported that JB-Hifi has lifted the restriction on $500 max Gift card purchases, so you could try your luck. Please buy max 5 cards only and leave them for other people (including me, haha, got none so far) so everyone can have a smiling Black Friday purchases.

PARTY IS OVER. Well done to those who got the cards. Pity to the people who could not get the cards (me too, tried 5 times, gave up, friend gave me few cards). What a good deal with such a shameful operation that left many people frustrated.

      Great, I'm in Melbourne when am I allowed in

  • +1 vote

    I call a Coles and finally found some stock, so I make sure it is the right one, I ask does it have jbhifi on it? Yes, is it the discounted ones? Yes great! Can you put it on hold for the next hour? Sure I can do that.

    20 mins away but idc anymore I drive there and I go to the counter….they left the brown HIM cards for me.

    I was legitimately so annoyed and tried my best to stay calm dunno how clearer I could have been about which cards I needed.

    If there's no stock by tomorrow afternoon, I'm done with this bs.

    Family member said they probably sold it to someone else who wanted it, fine then don't say you'll hold it for 1 hour.

    •  

      Same thing happened to me. They don’t really care if they get it wrong they still get paid.

      •  

        I think my family member is right and they just sell it to Whoever comes afterwards or it's a lack of communication and some co worker sells it

        •  

          This is Australia not Japan so we can't really expect much. Coles just doesn't deliver…

          I was lucky, the lady who pick up my Phone call kept it aside for me when I was 10 min away and she told me to pick up at the service desk and I did. May be because the staff in regional Victoria are better than the one in metro.

    Seems still many the restaurant and pub gift card, why people are not buying them? They are just EFTPOS card, right? Just like cash? Any EFTPOS machine will take them I guess?

    Is there a way we can put them in mobile phone go digital not carrying physical cards?

    • -2 votes

      They aren’t. They only work in certain pubs/restaurant not everywhere

    •  

      The only place my restaurant card didn’t work was at a small cafe next to a servo in some small town during a road trip. Guess their EFTPOS terminals just didn’t register as a restaurant business.

      •  

        oh didnt know that you eftf machine needs to be registered according to the business type….
        correct. 99.99% will work.

        •  

          You are correct sorry guys! I used at shopping centre for sushi and macca and it worked. Might grab a couple more as xmas is around the corner and will go out more

            @fozzie: discounted food taste more yummy, right ? :)
            thats why i was feeling weird why people dont want 15% off of foods ?

    •  

      No, we got give about $300 worth of these card a few years ago. We tried at Coles/Woolies to pay for groceries. But they wouldn't work. Not sure if the new ones do, but if you expect to be able to use it at a EFTPOS machine, be careful.

        of course… not working at coles/ww
        but restaurants i thinkg 99.99pct will

  •  

    They did not mention that which colour card it should be. So might be some problem with scanning.
    Because they clearly mentioned that only Teen, him and her gift cards and restaurant ans bar ones. But they did not mention that which colours.

        Ahh I thought these were avialable via the coles website. I guess not.

        Im really late to the party here… I wanted to buy a $2.5k fridge from JBHi FI.

          Not sure where you based? All the gift cards are out of stock in Melbourne metro but I was on a road trip to regional victoria. I managed to pick up around $3000 worths of gift cards on my return.

                  @iShibby: Interestingly, Coles in Traralgon mentioned that they can't give 15% off due to IT issues. I pick up some of them and scanned at the check-out, it showed as 15% off. So I pick up more in the end.

          •  

            @azm: I’m curious too!

            •  

              @psycho06: Presumably Warragul maybe some if you are close to the area. Drouin has a couple of Nintendo cards and restaurant cards when I left.

            @Ash-Say: All good, I went to my local in Brisbane and got $2.4k worth. The check out girl wasn't too impressed. New fridge! Woohoo!

  •  

    Make sure you keep all reciepts until cards show balance online. Currently one of my cards has not activated yet and it has been more than four days. Online balance it says activated, however $0 balanec. I called TCN and they said without reciept they cannot do anything about it

    •  

      Wow that's bs sorry to hear

      You should be able to get coles to print you a receipt if you take your original card and have the date/time of the transaction

      Is it game over for all of suburban Brisbane? Any stores in regional seq have some ?

      •  

        Indooroopilly restocked today so others might as well

    •  

      Yeah Coles told me if they put them through to fast they don't register, but it says it has registered.

    I have managed to get some from Coles Evanston (SA)
    Also there are heaps at Coles Gawler (SA) All in $50s
    Hope it helps someone.

      There's 6 $100 remaining here, left some for you guys. A bit of 30s/50s left, didn't count

      •  

        How did you go about buying more than 5?

        •  

          I don't buy stacks of them (like 10 in one go), I do 5 + whatever to buy at different checkout places

        •  

          I bought 21 gif5 cards from the regional Victoria. They had to make 3 separate transactions: 10 + 10 +1
          Some store on the other hand, tried to limit at 5 cards each but many check out staff didn’t realise Coles imposted the limit and they work their way around by assigning different vendor instead of TCN on register.

        Update as of 3.09pm: someone has bought the other $100 remaining and its not me lol

  •  

    Anyone know if there are any melbourne or regional Victoria that may have it?

    PSA: IT TAKES 30MIN FOR THE VALUE TO APPEAR ON THE CARD.

      Better than the 5+ hours it was taking at the start of the deal 🙃

  • +5 votes

    Just popped by my local Coles. And at first glance only a handful of $30 kids cards were left.
    After a little more perseverance, there was an white coloured stack hidden behind some other random cards.

    Thanks to whoever hid about 8-10x $50 HIM cards behind another stack thinking others wouldn’t find them, or for trying to keep it for themselves.

    I only bought 5, and left the remaining in plain sight for others who would want them.

    I’d call that a win-win!

    I’d say for those still on the hunt that this is it… I assume there won’t be a restock before midnight tomorrow. YMMV

    Also the staff clerk warned me about scams and said be careful. I said ok, I’ll be careful (:

  •  

    If you are in Newcastle NSW Just go to Coles at Waratah, Wallsend and Fletcher lot of 50s and 30s there…..Just brought the New MacBook Air M1 for $1175
    How to get the deal?

      hmm…my local jb told me they have been instructed not to discount more than 10% and thus were unable to match unidays or unisa pricing…

  •  

    Lutwyche, Brisbane, has probably has about $1500 left of $50s and 30s.

    I just grabbed $2.4k of mostly 100s and a few 50s

    •  

      but why?

      • +3 votes

        what do you mean why?

        I can now buy a fridge that Jbhifi has for $2800 for just over $2000 by getting them to price match and with the 15% discount. So why? to save $800…

  •  

    Since the TCN cards can only be used in store. Can you click and collect, then refund and pay using gift cards?

    Do online orders have different refund process? Not process at the store?

    •  

      Can only purchase in store

      • +1 vote

        That's I meant, click and collect using credit card. When you are there to collect, refund and re-buy using gift card in store.

        But not sure if they would process refund of online orders in store, and if they can immediately sell online order stock. But since all JB HiFI are corporate owned, can't see why not but who knows.

  •  

    disgraceful

    Used 6 of my 7 $100 cards on Thursday. Waited until today to use the last one and it didn't work, that's 5 days since purchased .

    Now the website to register ( and check balance ) is not working

    Had to dig deep into my red bin that was out for collection in order to retrieve the proof of purchase.

    Also, went to JB and had to pay unexpectedly in order to secure the purchase I wanted. It couldn't be delayed or I would miss out.

    • +1 vote

      Same issue with having to pay to secure my purchase while the cards weren't working.

      Ended up getting the guys at JB to agree to refund me the next day and immediately buy it again using the now-activated gift cards. Really had to twist the managers arm on that one.

      Sorry to hear but this has been discussed a thousand times in the comments. People shouldn’t be mistaking these now surely.

      • +6 votes

        For first time buyer who would’ve thought there were 2 brands and going through all the comments looking for something that you were not aware to begin with?

        I blame equivocal advertising from coles and myself for not checking the final amount before paying, sigh

        •  

          Agree it is misleading. There are quite a few people in here that bought the wrong cards, some got stuck with them I believe 😞

          •  

            @iShibby: Wow couldn’t get a refund? I purchased via credit card and hopefully the bank can resolve the issue as a last resort if they refused to give me a refund. Don’t mind coles gift card though.

                    So yes, it’s misleading.

                      @tadasu: @taadasu If you actually read carefully, even in the catalogue, it says including HIM and HER.

                      • -3 votes

                        @braker: What’s your point? Yes it does say including him her but doesn’t specify whether it’s TCN or Ultimate, unless you specifically read their multiple pages long T&C, which I highly doubt anyone doing their grocery shopping would do in a supermarket.

                        Anyway, not saying it’s entirely their fault because it’s not, it’s partly my fault for not checking the final amount before tapping my card.

        Just 986 times , not a thousand yet

  •  

    I found a few $30 left but the Coles self-service machine wouldn't let me scan more than 3 cards.
    Staff said yeh there is a limit.. but since when??

    •  

      Max is 5 per person

      • +2 votes

        I bought 9 today and the self service machine actively stops you from buying more than 3 at a time. I had to make several runs across different checkouts.

        In other news, I left a few $50 cards and a stack of $30 ones behind at Whitfords, WA. Coles Hillarys, Warwick and Greenwood had none.

      •  

        So 5 per person sounds like a magic number? Since the machine either stops you at 3 or let you bypass it across different transactions.

        •  

          Don't know. I wonder if its been change due to the rush, because I used self service or because I bought mostly $50 cards.

    •  

      i had 3 card limit too but the assistant allowed me 4. No idea why they could override 3 to 4 but not any more. They were not friendly at Coles

      •  

        Very unfriendly at my local Coles they gave me the evil stare

        •  

          Did you give it back?

  •  

    So they took away the “go digital” section of the restaurant card. It hasn’t been working since the promotion started I think. Let’s hope they took it down to fix it.

    head to surrounding rural towns if you want 15% TCN cards from Coles by today, it was how I snacked heaps of them with ease :) - the cost of driving out of city is considered as a scenic drive worth lol
    for those who live in Gold Coast, head down to Ballina, Goonellabah and Lismore if you want $100 ones, they have a lot left there, some without JBHifi logo on but it’s fine as long as you get the Him, Her, Teens and Kids ($50 mostly and only I guess with these)

  •  

    Does anyone know the Him / Her card can be used at adidas outlets and etc thanks
