[Everyday Rewards] Bonus 2000pts (Worth $10) with $100 "Swap Celebration" Gift Card (Can Swap for $100 eBay GC) @ BIG W In-store

2280

Lo and behold, this is the deal that everyone is waiting for to stack with the eBay Afterpay sales that are flooding ozbargain atm 😀

BIG W is having a Easter promotion: 10% back in Everyday Rewards Points on select gift card purchases. This is much better than the pathetic 1.5% gift card discount from CashRewards via Choice GC. These gift card will probably be sold out soon after this post with the eBay sale is still going so you will probably have to be quick. They are available for purchase in store only.

The best card to buy is the $100 Swap Celebration Gift Card. Each card purchase will earn 2000 bonus Everyday Rewards Points worth $10. You can then exchange it for a $100 eBay Gift Card for use in the eBay Afterpay sale.

You can also buy the $50 Swap Celebration Gift Card which will earn 1000 bonus points worth $5.

The $100 Perfect EFTPOS Gift Card will also earn 2000 bonus points but there is a ridiculous $6.95 purchase fee. This card is useful if the store does not accept payment by credit card, such as Bill Pay @ Australia Post.

BIG W also has Ultimate Student, Eats, Active gift cards included in this promotion.

Tips

  • There is a limit of 10 gift card purchases per Everyday Rewards Member. If you want more than 10 gift cards, then you will need to have another Everyday Rewards membership.

  • You can combine with the current Coles Mastercard gift card sale for further saving. See
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/610406

  • You cannot buy gift cards with Woolworths brand gift cards (Woolworths, Wish, BIG W gift cards), but you can use Coles Mastercard gift cards.

    Thought I'd share the love for those in Melb.
    I live close to the city, after ringing around a few stores I managed to find swap cards at Sunshine @ BIg W.
    There was around 10 or so $50 'celebration' ones left on the rack.
    If you are close by, try there!

    •  

      Did you ring Highpoint's Big W? Anymore there?

      •  

        Yep tried them - they had no 'Celebration' ones but many of the other Swap gift card types.

      •  

        Was there, none left.

      •  

        Water gardens still has plenty both 50 and 100 left … if you are located closed to

    No Celebration ones left at Brisbane CBD store.

    •  

      thanks, saved me a trip

    •  

      Went there yesterday around 3 PM. Grabbed 10 x $100 from the shelf near self-checkout registers. They still got some when I left.

      •  

        Damn I only checked where they had all the gift cards. Didn't know they had some near the self check out.

  •  

    can i buy it online somehow

    •  

      In store only deal

  •  

    Geelong big W still has a stack off $50s left and a couple of $100 since I left half an hour ago.

    I also had to meet with the manager to talk about ato scams before I was able to purchase some.

    Anybody try purchasing more than 10 Swap cards on same Everyday rewards card? I realise T&Cs state max 10 - but sometimes this is not enforced

    •  

      Bonus points should show on the screen, so if you don't see the bonus point then just cancel the transaction.

  •  

    Thanks OP, I got a couple of GC from BigW.

    Can i pay with wish gift cards for these?

    Edit: Just saw this answered in OP

  •  

    Guys don't go over 10 of each type of giftcard on 1 Rewards card . Max is 10 X $100 and 10 X $50 .
    Double check someone this is the first time they have a strict limit of 10 . Past you could blast forever on a card even though they said that limit .

      so you didn't see the bonus points on the screen on your 2nd transaction? Better stick with T&C to be safe.

    I have a hack for Woolies/bigw/bws employees that is similar to the post i posted on the Wish card promo (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/611135?page=1#comment-1022...).

    I purchased a $500 (plus $7.95 purchase fee) Only1 visa gift card and got the staff 5% discount, which cost me $482.95 ($17.05 saving). I used that visa card to purchase the $500 ($100 x 5) worth of Swap Gift Card for $475 (after 5% staff discount), which gives you a balance of $25 on the visa card. So you end up with a saving of $67.05 plus you are left with $25 on the visa card.

      you need to check your math.
      your cost: $482.95
      your value: $500.00 of swap GC + $25 of visa gift card = $525
      profit =$525-$482.95 = $42.05

      •  

        my bad. that was a copy/past + edit fail from the other post

    •  

      Swap card sale @ Big W, staff no extra discount though.

      $10 rewards > $5 credits saving

      •  

        sorry, my bad. I just assumed that we got staff discount on the swap gift cards at bigW since the discount applies when purchasing from woolies.

        •  

          staff discount on GC never applied at BigW if I remember correctly.

  •  

    Thanks OP. Good for transaction under $700 with the current 7 giftcard limit.

    •  

      Some ppl reported that you can use 8 gc after trying a few times, you will get error at first and try again and it works so it may worth a try. I remember I can use 8 gc with coupon code but it was a few months ago.

    Just tried to get the $100 Perfect EFTPOS Gift Card at Redbank, Qld 4301 and was told they aren't selling them because they had trouble activating them. Anyone else having trouble?

    •  

      Yes. Unable to buy even 1 card.

  •  

    Can this $100 Perfect EFTPOS Gift Card be used online?

      Nope.

  •  

    Canberra City and Airport Big Ws are sold out of $100 Celebration Swap cards (I got them). Airport still has plenty of $50s.
    Just swapped them to eBay and bought the $600 Xiaomi scooter, no dramas. Use the PIN not the card number on eBay.

    There are a lot of 50s and 100s Swap gift cards at Carns Hill, NSW

    Can you use the points to buy gift cards or anything other than your groceries?

      you can't use points to buy gift card.

      IMO, Petrol is the most valuable thing to redeem pts on.

      Redeeming pts on a normal rewards card is disadvantaged by 5% @ Woolies/BWS, 10% @ Big W to a staff rewards card, but equal at Woolies servo.

      •  

        IMO, Petrol is the most valuable thing to redeem pts on.

        Yeah me too. I was surprised they added this ability. It's a gamechanger!

        •  

          same here, I have been using it for petrol when the price is the cheapest at WW/EG, any other times 7-Eleven fuel lock.

        •  

          I just found this out yesterday. Yes it is!
          The other thing I found out recently is that it can be used to buy sim cards.

    Does anyone know if they have stopped you using woolies rewards points to pay for gift cards? I have a few hundred woolies $ I want to convert to something more useful.

    • +1 vote

      it has been stopped long time ago. You can only use your points for Grocery shopping or fuel.

      •  

        Ahh dam. I knew they stopped their own GCs being purchased but 3rd party was different last I had the facts :(

        • +1 vote

          Last time they stopped it for 3rd party giftcard with the exception when that giftcard is on catalogue promotion then they stopped it altogether.
