Hi everyone. Another fantastic birthday bonus for all our members. Before buying, make sure you enter our competition to win a Purple iPhone 12 & double cashback for a whole year. Submit your details just once, then every shop of $20 or more gets you an entry. Good luck!

The $5 bonus will show as pending in your Cashrewards account immediately upon activation of the offer (no confirmation email is sent). This will be automatically approved within 7 days of any associated qualifying purchase being approved (as per the terms of the store).

Find our gift card page here with up to 6% cashback on gift cards. We've recently added four new cards - Splurge, Indulge, Thrill, and Coles. The cashback rate for Coles is small for now, however the bonus still represents a 10% saving on a $50 gift card (nothing to sneeze at). Coles & Foot Locker gift cards are for in-store redemption only (not online). Please note there may be limited stock of some $50 cards, so first in, best dressed.

    For those that may have concerns re your credit/debit cards, I’ll pin this here for reference. Thanks again, and have a great weekend :)

    Your card details are never linked/stored on Cashrewards - once you click Shop Now, everything happens at True Rewards.

    To unlink your card from True Rewards, (1) go to payment for another gift card, (2) go to checkout - just before hitting pay you will see your card details, (3) click the bin icon and it will be removed.

    • +1

      At step 2 it says in red,

      Too many total linked card attempts.
      Please contact us.

      And its been like a week since I contacted but not even a response. Prevented me from buying gift cards from last deal and seems it will today too

      • The same thing has happened to me today. So if you unlink your card from True Rewards each time this will happen. Is it safe to leave it linked?

    Thank you, bought $50 coles, pity there is no amazon.

  • Happy Birthday, thanks TA!

    Btw has anyone figured out a foolproof way to scan the Coles gift card barcode? It never seems to scan (both flybuys and main scanner) either phone or prinout, and invariably we end up having the type in the extra long code and pin.

    • +16

      works for me everytime I use StoCard app to scan under the flybuys scanner to the side.

      • Thank you, I'll try that next time :)

      • +4

        I find some new machine catches the barcode pretty easily now.

    • +8

      I used to struggle as well, make sure your phone brightness is set to max and enlarge the barcode a little (if using phone). The flybuys scanner works better than the main scanner in my experience.

      • Thanks, I find it difficult to spend $50 in one go, so I'm keen to try your tips!
        If only it was as easy as Woolworths…

        • I actually struggle with WW too and always just key the numbers (but not as long as Coles).

          I actually just take screenshots of the GC and save them on my phone to use.

    • +1

      If you have a android phone, save it to Google pay, I find it is much easy to scan in Google pay than in pdf viewer.

      • +1

        For Android, recently I found this unofficial coles giftcard app made by an indie developer which is pretty neat.
        It allows one to store flybuys as well as giftcards barcode and pin, with additional to a check giftcard balance feature - because coles doesn't release a public API to check giftcard balance, the app opens the coles giftcard balance checker website and grab the data from there, looks crude but it works.
        Downside compare to the official woolies giftcard app is everytime u spent on a giftcard, you have to manually press the button to check balance and update the balance, but still better than nothing.
        Upside is the barcode scanning works everytime :)
        And of course due to it being unofficial app, there's some risk involve so judge yourself from the ratings and reviews it received. I've been using it for past few months without issue.
        Link below or search for 'unofficial coles gift card balance' in play store:

        • Or store PIN somewhere else if not memorize it.

        • If you are storing your Flybuys details on this app, make sure you double check and confirm that the barcode matches up with your card's.

          I entered mine and the barcode generated was different.

          • @tatasauce: Been tracking my Flybuys points without issue. I just checked and the barcode indeed looks different than the cards, however I used another phone as the barcode scanner and scanned the barcode in the app, it translate to the same Flybuys number so seems alright.

    • I store it in Samsung Pay and use the vertical scanner. Make sure the screen brightness is not too dark. A bad screen protector can affect it too.

    • use the handheld scanner and it works much better

    • @forrester @Craze @iori57 @couger
      Been using this app Card Smash to store all my gift cards for a while. Works like a charm. Developer is super quick to respond.

      1) Can group by merchant and see total value of all cards available. Once you click merchant, it picks the lowest value card and there is option below to switch to othe gift cards.

      2) Can update balance once transaction is done.

      3) Can sync all cards in family via dropbox.

      I have shared a snap below to show how it looks. Now i don't have to worry to star those emails, take printouts, making sure that i carry physical cards etc.



      • Thanks, looks good but the only thing is it doesn't check for the giftcard balance and each family member have to remember to update the card balance after every transaction. Kind of wish coles have something like the woolworths giftcard app where the balance automatically updates

        • I prefer a consolidated solution for all my gift cards from different stores/retailers, for which this app works great.

          If its not a native gift card to app, no app will offer auto update of balance due to Captcha to be entered.

          I used multiple apps before setting on this.

          There is a button on top right corner to increase brightness for scanning when card is selected.

    Guys, just called True Rewards tech re Shop Now issue. Please hold up. Will update you shortly.

    Edit 1: Confirmed issue at True Rewards and trying like mad to sort this out. In the meantime, if you have success with clicking Shop Now once, waiting 60 seconds, then clicking again, you should be able to purchase.

    Edit 2: True Rewards has confirmed that it should all be fixed now. Thank you for your patience, and happy shopping :)

        Just got one successfully.

    I'm new to this. How do we get our $5 discount? I'm asking cos when I bought a $50 Coles gift card, I paid the whole amount. Will we get it later? Also, I activated the offer before I bought the gift card. TIA

    • +1

      Will we get it later?

      Yes. According to the OP:

      The $5 bonus will show as pending in your Cashrewards account immediately upon activation of the offer (no confirmation email is sent). This will be automatically approved within 7 days of any associated qualifying purchase being approved (as per the terms of the store).

      Cashback on gift card purchases typically take a few business days to be approved.

      I activated the offer before I bought the gift card.

      You should be eligible for the bonus.

      • Thank you so much mate, awesome…

        • +3

          You should have two amounts in your acct. A $5 bonus and the cashback you received for purchase. When the cashback is approved (usually 3-4 days), the bonus will approve around a day later :)

  • Processed my Coles giftcard. Partner is having issues as everyone else mentioned.

    1) In mobile mode, just click shop now once
    2) blank windows will popup, with the minimise icon in top right. Leave it as is.
    3) It will finally load after a few minutes allowing you to pay
    4) Once you click pay it will get stuck on processing window for a further minute or so before seeing Gift Sent

  • +1

    Not sure if it's half way fixed or what, but what you can do to get around the problem is to go to the specific gift card page and click on the "Shop Now" button, it won't work at first and then if you go to a different "tab" of the browser then come back to it a few seconds later, it (Show Now button) will work. I just completed a purchase for Playstation Store GC purchase.

    Good luck and thanks TA!

    • +2

      Should all be back working now :)

      • Yap, tracked just fine for both usual cashback (3%) and bonus credit ($5) via my account.

        • +1

          Thanks for confirming.

          • @tightarse: Hi TA,

            Do you know if I can get in touch with True Rewards today? Bought the wrong gift card. Can I cancel the purchase and buy the correct one? Hope you know. Thanks.

  • My link credit card window is stuck at checking .

    • It's slower, but it went through for my purchase eventually.

      • Closed the window and tried again. Moved one step forward but now at review order cant see submit button. Looks like its not my day :(

  • Just bought a Choice gift card, successfully redeemed for eBay gift card. No errors; albeit a tad slow at redemption page.

  • Coles is always good at 10% off

  • Can the $50 Choice Gift Card be converted to $50 Coles GC? If so, save $0.70 compared to just buying the Coles GC from the CR website.

    • +1

      I don't think Choice gift card includes coles unfortunately.

  • Too many total linked card attempts.
    Please contact us….how long does this take to reset?

    • Thanks TA, for sorting this out…Got a $50 Coles card. 👍

  • Anyone knows why adding one coles gift card to Apple wallet removes the other one?

    Thanks TA. I bought the Coles gift card this time.

    (A completely unrelated point: When oh when will Coles have an equivalent to "Woolworths Money" for storing and tracking these cards and their balances!)

    • +1

      +100 the Woolworths money app is great. Makes using and sharing giftcards with family so easy.

  • Clarifying, are the $20 collective (since activation. e.g 7+10+3 purchases could make $20) or each purchase of $20 or more?

    Thanks TA :)
