Purchased $300 Woolworths Gift Card but Can't Use Online. I Can't Get a Refund

I purchased essential $300 Woolworths gift card and I didn’t know it can’t be used online.

What can I do? I bought it to get the rewards points and to do my click and click online. I tried to purchase online and it wouldn’t let me. I rang up and they said no refund but then I can maybe speak to supervisor next week. It seem that there is no way for refund. I hate going into the store.

What options do I have for a hack or short cut or other ideas?

    Essentials Gift Cards

    Give the gift of everyday essentials.

    For someone who's leaving home the first time, or someone just needs a helping hand, an Essentials Gift Card could be a great gift. It can be spent in store on everyday items like groceries, household goods and school supplies. It excludes items like alcohol and tobacco. Plus it never expires, so they can keep it for a rainy day.

    They weren't hiding it…

    Generally speaking, no refunds for gift cards. Shock horror you'll need to go shop in store

    Simply Groceries Gift Card, You could have bought a WIsh giftcard. May be they can swap yours to a Wish giftcard ?

      I already have scratched it , don’t think they will accept it

    Do you drive? It can be used at Woolworths Petrol. Don't think it's possible to buy petrol online, yet.

      Yep I drive. Really? That will be good if I can use it

        Upon reading your post again I'm not sure if you bought the Simply Groceries gift card or the Essentials gift card. Only the Essentials gift card is valid for petrol.

    This might be a bigger problem for you… once you’ve overcome this spending it in store shouldn’t be a problem.

    I wonder if I can purchase Amazon or Stan gift cards but I think I read I can’t purchase gift cards with a gift card.

    •  

      Dont think Woolies is selling Amazon yet, but Coles is selling now. This grocery card is for granny/grandpa as it cannot be added to Woolies Money App. I bought it once instore coz I could not find Wish card instore.

        Pretty sure it is for grandson/granddaughter with the restriction against using it for alcohol and tobacco.
