  • Hi TA,
    For Cashrewards Max, do we have an increased cashback rate for Giftcards/Purchase from the Giftcard Portal?

    • +3

      Unfortunately not at this stage, sorry.

      • +1

        Another quick q about Cashrewards Max - I assume this means we have to checkout using credit/debit card to get the bonus, and that using our credit/debit card via PayPal won't qualify?

        • +1

          Hi, that's correct. Payment must be made directly with the linked card, and not PayPal. Please see the FAQs.

      • +2

        Hopefully never. I know cashrewards was bought by ANZ, but they are truly non-competitive at credit cards.

        I've never been tempted by an ANZ card in decades of adulthood.

        Tell them to get off their butt and offer a credit card with useful bonuses if they're serious about this.

        • +3

          The problem I have is that there are no online shopping benefits with an ANZ credit/debit card like there are with things like PayPal, such as the free (reimbursed) return postage costs - I don't know if it's a risk I want to take for a small % cashback increase.

        • +7

          ANZ … are truly non-competitive at credit cards.

          Not sure where you have been looking, but there have been plenty of good/great ANZ credit card deals posted on here over the years. $0 annual fee for 70-90k QFF or Velocity points used to be quite common.

          • +2

            @djkelly69: I read the same comment, laughed and looked at the 200k QF points in my account from ANZ…

          • +1

            @djkelly69: Churners. I mean a card to keep and maintain linked to CR.

            You might churn for points. That's nice. You're the 1%. I'm talking about the other 99% of Australians.

            • @justtoreply: So what sort of bonuses are you talking about if not points?

              • +3

                @djkelly69: The ones I keep offer:
                1. Price protection
                2. Extended warranty
                3. Phone screen replacement
                4. Cashback offers

                Infuriating no-go zones too:
                5. No International fee for overseas sellers (when you pay in aud and the seller is registered overseas some cards slog you a dumbass fee)
                6. No additional currency conversion fee

                In practice this is 28degrees and amex.

                I have one through my home loan for points on everyday purchases but frankly it's garbage.

            • +1

              @justtoreply: Do you really think 99% Australians go for credit cards for those benefits you have outlined below? You may be the one who is 3SD away from median ..

        • +2

          i churn both anz's qantas and anz points cards every 12 months like clockwork and they've never declined an application.

          so there's that.

    Black Friday is around the corner… time to stock up on gift cards :)

  • +9

    Picked up a $30 Amazon gift card. Cheers TA!

    • Under Amazon, it has the special condition:

      Important: Cashback for Amazon.com.au gift cards is limited to $3 in total per member account, per calendar month, irrespective of the number and/or value of the gift cards purchased in that month. Limited to one Amazon gift card purchase per member per day (of any denomination).

      Does that apply to this deal?

      • +21

        Hi, not at all. The bonus is fine on any GC purchase. That's just a cashback restriction for Amazon GCs, not a bonus restriction :)

        • +3

          Thanks for the confirmation.

        • Thanks. Bought a $30 Amazon card too!

  • Cheers, TA!

    Thanks TA! Picked up another Coles $50 eGift Card for groceries.

    • i wanted to get those too, shame you can't use them online :(

    • Same. Almost wasted $0.10 on sms delivery.

    • My local Coles store has scanner issue. So it can’t scan the Coles GC. I was asked to enter 19-20 digit number manually at the terminal screen.

      • Try using the hand scanner or one of the newer machines (if your store has a mix of new and old)

        I've found the older machines don't scan cards properly.

        Also check what you're using to scan from. Haven't had a problem with stocard since it automatically bumps up the screen brightness.

      • You can scan the gift card where the flybuys card scanner as well as the main scanner afaik

    • Didn't realise it was in-store only until I went to pay…

  • Awesome, thanks dude.

  • Any Cashrewards deal are always good, thanks TA

  • +3

    Kinda sad that there's no current cashback on menulog/deliveroo/doordash

    • You can get the giftcards?

      • Is there a deliveroo gift card available at Cashrewards? When I search for deliveroo in the gift card portal nothing comes up, but I thought maybe it could be hidden in one of the "bundled" gift cards.

        • +1

          Only DoorDash and UberEats giftcards

      • I don't see a Menulog giftcard available on Cashrewards. Is there one?

        • Only DoorDash and UberEats giftcards

  • Thanks TA

  • Is purchasing eBay gift card valid for bonus cashback ?

    • Yep for sure. However purchases from eBay are not eligible for the bonus.

    • +10

      Choice gift card a bit more CB, can still swap to eBay gift card.

      • whats CB stand for?

        • +1

          I could make a joke but instead… it stands for cashback

        • +1

          Cash Back

  • Cheers TA

    Thanks, been waiting for this! I do wish that we could use our available cashback to purchase gift cards though.

    • +1

      I think shopback allows that

      • Yeah they do - very handy.

    • Just cash out first if available.

      • +1

        I only have $7.99 balance, so I can't. Shopback would let me apply it straight to a gift card purchase.

        • I only have $7.99 balance,

          You didn't CB enough 😆

    • -1

      I don't think it's important, personally

  • Thanks mate

  • Thanks $30 Amazon gift card, can still apply gift card to my unshipped drums set

  • Nice arse. If anyone was thinking about getting the gold Casio Royale World Time Watch this will make it even cheaper!

    Casio W-737H $33.65

      I was just scrolling down for this table.. Can't thank you enough, Yowie.

  • Good on ya TA

  • thanks TA, adding to my Amazon kitty

  • Thanks TA :)

  • just activated it but the pending bonus is not there, I refreshed couple of times and no luck.

    • got it now.

  • why there is no pending $5 after activation?

    • Definitely should be. Please refresh your My Rewards page and check again.

      • I’m not seeing the pending $5 after activating either. Have refreshed multiple times. The cash back for the gift card purchase has appeared.

        • Please give it a few minutes and let us know if it appears. Thanks!

      • took around 3 mins to get the pending $5, all good, thanks

    • same. I got the the confirmation page, but its not on my reward list?

      Edit: it came through after about 3 minutes

      • I'm getting a bit concerned now, as it's over 3mins and I haven't seen the $5 tracked. Been doing F5 for a while.

        Update: It came through after 4mins. Thanks TA!

        • Same here. 8 mins for me. I've given up waiting and just screenshot the page showing its already activated and am going to risk making my purchase now as I suspect its just the site going slow.

    • I had the same issue. It wasn't appearing but had purchased Amazon gift card which appeared instantly. The $5 bonus came afterwards. So now it looks like the bonus was activated after the gift card purchase

      • +1

        You've got nothing to worry about :)

        • Thank you for the reassurance :-)

          • +1

            @calinya: Looks like a small glitch that the tech team will sort. The activation will show after a few minutes in your My Rewards :)

    • Mine took 10 mins to show up :(

  • Good deal as always. Thanks TA! Picked up JB hifi

    it's annoying how this is always changing.. Wasted precious minutes looking - should've checked first.

    • +4

      Just buy an Amazon gift card to be eligible for the bonus and purchase the toys with that :)

      • Yeah, just buy the gift card first.

      • Thanks for the tip!

    • But pet food now up to 6%

  • Thank you!

  • why don't we get big cashback with higher purchase such as $10 for $60 purchase or $20 for $120 or $40 for $240?

    • +6

      Why is life not free.

  • I eiah you could used CR credit to pay for giftcards.. i can never verify my CC (it never appears on the transactions).

    Oh well

  • Activated the promo and purchased a Choice $30 giftcard, but unlike previous times, $5 didn't show up as pending immediately…

    • +2

      Yes, this has been discussed in previous comments. Please give it a few minutes - it'll get there :)

      • This happened to me as well. I remember I activated the offer and purchased the gift card. But now in the rewards history, the promo $5 is shown up after the purchase of the gift card. How do I confirm whether my purchase is qualified for $5 promo? Thank you!

        • +1

          As stated, the tech team is all over it. It's a minor timing issue that will be resolved. You have nothing to worry about :)

          • @tightarse: Great! Thank you!

          • @tightarse: I thought the $5 will be approved in 7 days ??? It's still pending

            • @arsetight: Has your associated transaction that you made to get the $5 bonus been approved? If not, then you have to wait until it has

              • @kerfuffle: The transaction has an estimate approval time of November , so it'll be after November ?

                • @arsetight: Or when the transaction is approved, whichever comes first. You won't get the bonus until the transaction is approved.
