Spotted this at a Woolworths in the ACT.
This deal is only really a “deal” in my eyes if you load at least $159 on a gift card, as the bonus points you earn from purchasing a $159 gift card will have an equivalent value of the $7.95 gift card purchase fee.
Please be aware of the following:
Please check the back of the gift cards in-store before purchasing the gift card. There has been a report of fraudsters altering a number of gift cards to change the barcode on the back. The new barcode - which has been printed out on paper and stuck onto the back of the gift card - is for a different inactive EFTPOS gift card, which means that when you go to pay and activate for an EFTPOS gift card, you are activating a EFTPOS gift card in the possession of the fraudsters, not the EFTPOS gift card you are holding. If you find any tampered gift cards in-store on your bargain quests, please immediately alert staff in-store.
These gift cards (issued by Blackhawk Network (Australia) Pty Ltd) expire three years from the date of issue.
These gift cards cannot be used for online purchases.
These gift cards cannot be used to purchase other The Perfect Gift Cards at Woolworths. (I tried and the POS system blocked it.)
Terms and conditions
Offer available from 8/9/21 to 14/9/21 on all denominations of the Perfect Gift Card (EFTPOS), in Woolworths supermarkets, Woolworths Metro and Woolworths MetroGo only, while stocks last.
Excludes Woolworths Online and Ampol Woolworths Metro.
Standard points will not be earned on amount spent on gift cards, but the relevant number of bonus points which you qualify for under this offer.
Bonus points can take up to 14 business days to be loaded onto your Everyday Rewards card from date of purchase.
Refer to individual cards for their terms and conditions.
Everyday Rewards Dollars
2000 Everyday Rewards points is equivalent to $10 Everyday Rewards Dollars (redeemable at Woolworths, BIG W, BWS across Australia or Caltex Woolworths / EG Australia in mainland Australia) or 1000 Qantas points.
Everyday Rewards points can only be converted to Everyday Rewards Dollars or Qantas points in multiples of 2000.
Everyday Rewards Dollars cannot be used for any gift card purchases at Woolworths unless your Everyday Rewards Dollars balance has already reached the $4500 limit.
Earning Everyday Rewards Points
Any purchase of any gift cards at Woolworths (or BIG W) will not earn any standard Everyday Rewards points.
Any purchase of any gift cards in this deal at Woolworths will not count towards any other bonus Everyday Rewards points promotions. In other words, targeted/personalised Everyday Rewards offers at Woolworths (e.g. spend $x in one transaction to earn y points) usually exclude any purchase of any gift cards.
You will not earn any bonus Everyday Rewards points for the gift card purchase fee.
If you are purchasing this gift card at a self-service checkout, you should be able to see the number of Everyday Rewards points you will earn as part of this transaction in the top right-hand corner of the payment screen.
You will only earn bonus points on every whole dollar. For example, if you specify $50.50 as the amount to be loaded onto the gift card, you will only earn 500 bonus points, not 505 bonus points.
Paying for Gift Cards
Woolworths’ POS system allows split payments for gift card purchases at self-service checkouts and serviced checkouts.
Gift cards issued by Woolworths Group Ltd1 cannot be used as payment for any gift cards at Woolworths (or BIG W). Attempting to redeem them on gift card purchases will be blocked by the POS system and return an error.
Make sure to check the small activation receipt that the checkout prints after a gift card purchase. If it says successful at the bottom of the receipt, the gift card was correctly activated. If it does not say successful, alert the service desk of the failed activation and they will sort it out. This receipt will be printed out even if you have turned off paper receipts for your Everyday Rewards account.
Odds and Ends
- Gift card purchases at Woolworths will earn 4c/L (or 6c/L in Tasmania) fuel vouchers.
