        I think they mean you can buy physical gift cards from Caltex, etc.

    Go zippay physical gift card + 10% cashback instead, if you won't max out your $1k on other things. Using Amazon promo credit invalidates you for cashback (gift card doesn't) and can only be used for items sold & shipped by Amazon AU (gift card has no such restrictions)

    •  

      Where is the 10% cashback deal from?

      • +3 votes

        https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/588546

        To do this you would need to buy an amazon gift card from a physical store paying with zippay, on a Saturday in Dec (tomorrow, since I'm in QLD and it's still Christmas). I think 7/11 sells them. But Zippay has a $1k credit limit (unless you specifically did a credit check for more) so it depends what you are buying in-store tomorrow. And each transaction should be <= $300 as the 10% cashback is capped at $30 per transaction.

          They do a credit check even for the $1000 limit.
          If you apply for zip they do a credit check no matter what. (Not sure you are saying otherwise but wanted to clarify for anyone thinking of signing up)

          •  

            @jimbobaus: oh right I thought a bunch of the comments were saying it is only Zip Money (>$1k limit) that does the credit check and not Zip Pay (default $1k limit). thanks for clarifying

            •  

              @mathematicalcoffee: We use zip at work and in the training they were very clear that every customer is credit checked.

              I know when I got my initial $1000 I was checked.
              I am at the max of $1500 now. They didn’t check me again when they offered the increased limit though.

          •  

            @jimbobaus: Do you know if there is a way to verify your identity with Zip (for setting up a Zip account) over the phone, using a valid government issued document?

            If I use the PayPal method on the app, I can see the sheer amount of personal data they want to scrape out of PayPal.
            I am definitely not comfortable with them scraping data off Internet Banking.

            I tried the Facebook method instead. It timed out with an error.

    Credit expires in feb if not used. What if I have $400 in credit and only spend $60 before feb? What credit takes precedence?

    • +1 vote

      The promo credit expires Feb (I.e. The $5)

      The rest sits in your account

      They're separate items so you can choose what to apply

  •  

    Can it be amazon egift card?

    • +2 votes

      yes just make sure it's at least $50

    •  

      yes, as long as its $50 or more, and the first 5000 buyers

    FYI, don't back out after successfully applying the code the first time. I did and now it says sorry, promotional code cannot be used even though it hasn't been used yet.

    • +4 votes

      Sorry for your loss mate.

    • +1 vote

      But if you look above the 'congratulations you qualify' message still is there. Moreover it happened to me last time but still got the $5

      •  

        Nah don’t have that message at all for me. Flat out cannot apply. Ohhhh well

    • +1 vote

      This happened to me during the Black Friday sales and a rep in chat was happy to apply the $5 to my account.

      •  

        I got it automatically anyway so I'm guessing you got $5x2

        Thanks, did this as well and got the credit, didn’t even need to buy the Gc

    Not as good a deal as getting an Amazon giftcard using Zip on Saturday at a supermarket. Plus it's limited to 5000.

      this doesn't generate a credit file enquiry

  • +1 vote

    Got one

  •  

    Basically it's 10% off but may lose cashback when you use it. I will just buy a 50 gift card tomorrow using zip. To get 10% cashback and still guarantee the future cashback.

    • +5 votes

      It's 9% off. ($50 spend for $55 of stuff).

      Zip version is actually 10% off ($45 spend for $50 of stuff) and doesn't have a time limit.

      •  

        So it's Even better with zip then

  •  

    Does the whole $55 has to be used by 15th Feb or only $5 promotion credit to be used?

    • +3 votes

      $5

    Thanks for sharing OP. I’m always happy to get 9% off.

    This is also good for people who can’t use Tap and Zip to buy gift cards for 10% cashback on Zip Super Saturdays (for whatever reason).

  •  

    Sigh, applied the code then accidentally closed the app while checking out. Now it says the code doesn't work. Excellent.

    •  

      It should still show as applied during checkout but won't let you reapply the code. Happened to me last time.

    •  

      Same as me! Now I think I might just give up. Don’t want to risk it :(

  •  

    thanks got one in last minute

    Who marked this as expired? Still works.

    •  

      Yes im not sure who did. It's still working

    Should note that Amazon promo cred negates any cashback.

  •  

    i got one but how do i view the credit?

    Does it take 3 days even with email delivery?

    •  

      They'll email you once the $5 promo cred has been applied. Might take a couple of days.

  •  

    The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.

    •  

      Getting this too on the app. Will try PC later.

  • +2 votes

    Just use the promo on S&S

    •  

      Exactly.

    •  

      Did you receive the $5 credit already? I am worried it might show up tomorrow when CR has 12% cash back and the use of he credit will void the cash back

      • +4 votes

        Even if it does you can deselect the credit on the checkout/payment details page

        •  

          Thanks, will keep an eye out for this and deselect

      •  

        You'll get a confirmation email if your credit applies.

        Something Similar to this:

        Subject : Benefit Confirmation for your Order xxxx

        Thank you for purchasing from Amazon.com.au.
        Your recent order xxxx entitles you to a promotional credit which we have added to your account. This credit can be applied to your next qualifying purchase.

        Thanks for purchasing at least $50 of Amazon.com.au Gift Cards. In accordance with the promotional terms, we have now automatically applied a $5 promotional credit to your account which can be used on eligible items shipped and sold by Amazon AU.

        •  

          Damn haven’t received anything like it even though I applied the code successfully.

        •  

          Thanks mate, will keep an eye out this email.

    Placed an order successfully, but then got an email a few minutes later saying there was a problem processing the order & it was cancelled??? Did this happen to anyone else?
    Spoke to customer service & they've said it will take someone 24-48 hours to get back to me as to why my order was cancelled…

      Pretty sure it is 10% rewards via tap and pay only. Some users confirmed Apple Pay payments worked in the past too, but not sure if still working.

        My fault for not reading that correctly, but it did work last week when I purchased when I purchased an Amazon gift card via the Prezzee app

          Some people did report it works with prezzee app. However this does not apply to all online or app orders.

        Gift card doesn’t affect cash back.

        Promotional credit does.

      You may think it's common.
