  • Thanks, TA, what are the new cards ? Can you give us some hints please ?

    • +1

      And will new cards be available today or after when this deal expires? :P

      • +2

        1 minute before offer expired.

  • I assume no Amazon, right?

    Thanks

  • +17

    New cards.. please be Amazon

    • +1

      Hope so. Otherwise there's not anything of interest to me personally

    • +8

      Netflix and Nintendo would be useful as well.

    • Hopefully not another shit one like menulog

      and be a good one like SCA or Repco or amazon of course.

  • +7

    So much temptation to spend money. This needs to stop.

    • +2

      well, make more or spend less :)

  • +6

    Only 1.5% cashback on choice gift cards now…?
    I remember it was a lot more than that previously.

    • +10

      I remember 5% discounted Woolies GC

      • +10

        I remember ING's paywave cashback

        • I remembter that was 5% then became 3%.

        • ah the good old times…

    • Agree, but getting the $50 choice GC with $5.75 cashback = 11.5% discount
      pretty good to use to purchase in eBay today with Shopback 25% cashback (4-10pm)

    • +1

      And this is why I almost exclusively use ShopBack’s gift card portal now. CR is just not competitive and the gift cards never fail.

  • No jb hi-fi?

  • targeted? I haven't received an email and it is now 9:21.

    Valid for purchases made from 9am 13/04/21 to 11:59pm 13/04/21 (AEST)

      No need for an email, you just need to activate on the linked page to be eligible.

    • By TA not targeted

      Edit: Really received email XD

  • -1

    Woolies gift card(s)?

    • +1

      It takes 2 clicks to see what gift cards are available…
      But no, no Woolies

  • Not for me this time, too little savings not worth buying gift card

    • -1

      Hand in your discount cards

    • +3

      11.5% gift card not enough??

  • +2

    Nice, might get an eBay card here for… Another sale later

    • I don't think it's part of this promotion.someone more knowledgeable can educate me if it's incorrect.

      • I bought an ebay card and it seemed to track just fine with both the bonus and the applicable cashback..

        They are always useful to have for smaller ebay purchases..

  • -2

    The remotely useful ones are 1-2%
    No deal

    • +8

      This one is 10+% if you buy exactly $50

  • +2

    Play Store gift cards can only be used on the Australian play store, right? (Asking for a friend in Turkey)

    • +1

      Yes sadly they are region locked. Australian cards don't even work in New Zealand.

  • Any gift cards? Or just those in the graphics of the email?

      Bloody awesome work, thanks for taking the time.

    • Bought a Hoyts gift card and there's an additional 50c SMS delivery charge, so total cost is $43.50. Not sure about the other cards.

      • Are you sure you need to pay the 50 cents? If you don't enter a mobile number, it gets delivered free of charge to your email.

        • Oh thanks for letting me know. Apparently my Chrome's auto refill populated the phone number automatically so I didn't even see that it's optional.

          • @tukanglistrik: This happened to me too, so i came here and searched for SMS. Thanks for posting about it so I didn't have to pay the 50c.

  • True Rewards' system is terrible, can't get past the confirm debit card page cause their website is glitched

    • +4

      I find it better than SB's gift cards. CR's system is seemless and easy to use and to "swap" the GCs

      • I agree, SB has a better rate right now though and removing your card details is much easier.

      • I'd prefer Shopback's gift cards, bit harder to enter in the code and pin but much more confirmation. Also easier to pay for with no need to dig in bank statement for $1 charge. I accidentally swapped a cashrewards choice gift card for the wrong one with cashrewards because there was no confirmation page. This would not have happened with shopback's gift cards.

        By the way if anyone knows how to reverse the swapped gift card it would be really helpful. No luck contacting support.

        • +1

          Pretty sure I've read warning on their webpage that swaps can't be reversed.

  • …so buy ebay giftcard here, then get additional 25% cash back via shopback from 4pm today, is this correct?

    • +1

      depending on how much isnt it, swap gift card at shopback is 5%?

      • You need at least $120
        So this is perfect!

    • I would double check ShopBack conditions first - whether paying with gift cards invalidates the cash back. Had a quick look just now but did not have a definite answer (not sure if gift card is considered a voucher…)

      • +1

        It is not considered a voucher.

      • -2

        It is very clear. Most here can differentiate between a voucher, promo code and a gift card.

  • +6

    The current selection & cash back rate is a bit meh tbh

    • +3

      Yeah, I'm certain that I'd be able to use a gift card from Amazon / Aldi / Coles / Woolies eGift / Kmart / probably Target. But the stores included are a stretch, and I'd much rather have $50 cash rather than $50 of expirable credit at these stores for ~$44 . E.g. for DoorDash / Uber Eats, using for pickups from local restaurants, they have started jacking up their item prices through those apps, but if you phone them directly or walk in the prices are the same as ever, so it's effectively a ~20% fee for using those apps, even for pickup.

  • I just purchased a $50 gift card through the Cashrewards.com.au website and I needed to link my CC to do it. All good - the $5 cash back is already showing on my cashrewards. I would now like to unlink my credit card from truerewards/cashrewards and I can’t work how to do it. Can anyone help please? many thanks

    • +8

      Go through the purchase process again and when it comes to pay there will be a bin symbol next to your card.

      • Thanks so much John Kimple - it worked :-)

  • Skip this & get targeted offer. Also do not login.

    • How long do you usually have to wait for a targeted offer?

  • At this rate I will not need to pay for Kayo for the next 2 years.

    • how how how?? Been looking for Kayo offers for a while now

      • I mean by buying $50 of gift vouchers every week seemingly. :)

  • Does anyone know about this?

    I purchased and received an email of google play gift card instantly.

    I copid the code but google play said the code doesn't valid.

    • +4

      What code did you copy? The Online eGift Card number or the PIN?

      • Silly me. Thanks!

        I used PIN BUT actually is eGift Card number.

    • +3

      You copied the PIN. I did the same. Copy the other one.

      • Thanks! I did the same but didn't try the other one.

  • -2

    Is there any requirement to 'click through' when purchasing a gift card through the cashrewards gift card portal in order to get the normal or bonus cash back? Or is simply logging into my cashrewards account sufficient

  • Thanks OP, got an eBay $50

    If you’re buying a eBay GC it would probably be better to use the ShopBack 25% off today…unless you wanted to use the $50 for later purchases.

    • +1

      Using a GC to pay doesn't disqualify cashback, only buying a GC is an ineligible purchase.

      • +1

        I’m saying $5 of $50 which is 10% Cashrewards compared to 25% ShopBack if you were going to spend it on eBay today.

        • +6

          You can use both.

          • +2

            @Hiphopopotamus: that's what ne-us is suggesting people to do..

            1. Buy $50 ebay giftcard through cashrewards (actually choice would be better, at 1.5% cashback, rather than ebay at 1%)
            2. Use shopback when buying ebay item with $50 giftcard to get the 25% off
            • +1

              @mahdoo: I see it now, the wording threw me.

              Use SB for cashback because their rate is going to be higher for a few hours later today.

  • +5

    1.5% cashback for the Choice gift card is just disappointing - used to buy regularly when it was 5% last month and previously

    • Basically forced to the opposition with the 5% when no juicy promos are on :)

      • +4

        I was holding off signing up to SB, guess I have no choice now (was hoping CR would bring 5% cashback back!!)

        (I’ve also sent a PM to the great TightArse about this!!)

  • Purchased Ebay card 1 hour ago. Tracked straight away. Still waiting for gift card. "Instant delivery to your inbox." Must look up definition of instant.

    • +2

      Choice or eBay card? Choice should be immediate

  • Ebay

  • I just got charged 50 bucks on the my bank account/card but the website site bounced back an error message. No card received in the email. Pain in the ass.

  • I made the mistake of trying to link a prepaid CC to purchase a gift card during the last promo which didn't work. I removed it to link another card but the site is still asking for verification on the old card so it looks like I'll be missing out on this promo too. 😥

    • Turns out unlinking my card through settings is only unlinking it from Cashrewards instore purchases.

      How do I unlink my card through True Rewards when it's waiting for verification? The prepaid CC doesn't show the 4 digit confirmation code in its transactions so I can't verify, and it's not giving me the option to add another card either.

      • +2

        Go halfway through checkout and you should see a delete button next to the linked card.

        • Thanks but it doesn't give me the option. What am I missing?

          https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/79898/88296/truereward...

          Clicking the confirm button only shows the "Confirm Card xxxxx" screen without anything to click.

          • @Junk Sifter: By the time I get there I see my linked card and the option to delete/remove it, it looks like the option isn't there because you haven't confirmed the card? I had an unconfirmed card before, it was removed but I don't remember how I did it or if it just timed out.

  • How long it will take to get Kogan gift card? The same as choice instant?

  • So the best option/max discount in regards to eBay gift cards ($50) is on SB app is to get the Swap (5% discount) card then change it to eBay on SB site?, I've never used swap cards before. Vs CR 1.5% discount choice card?

    As I understand it by mahdoo comment "Use Shopback when buying eBay item with $50 gift card to get the 25% off".

    How long does the process take to swap on SB?

    Then use it on eBay via SB to get a further discount today (before 10pm)?

    • I find swapping the swap card from SB quite problematic, whereas I've had less trouble with the choice card from CR.

      • Thanks, I didn't know that this can be done with both on CR and SB.
        So this can be done also online or only on App?

        • +1

          I think with SB SWAP, you can do online. My problem with it was that it doesn't recognize the PIN to swap the card very well. So if I buy any giftcards from SB, I tend to buy the actual merchant card rather than go through SWAP.

          With CR choice, I've clicked on the link on the email and swap the card there and then, usually for eBay. I only do it when I want to use the card. They're supposed to send you an email confirming the swap, but I've never received it. So when I "lost" my giftcard, ie could not find the details for it, I had to call true rewards. They were able to send me the confirmation email for the swap / redemption, so it was fine that way too. Otherwise, I suggest copying the details of the card straightaway.

    • I've SWAPed over $2000 eBay giftcard, not a single issue.

  • +2

    Any news with the new gc, TA ?

    • yea ive been waiting all day
