    Handy for those holding gift cards from recent BigW and Woolworths offer. Though iPhone 13 range is excluded.

      Actually, I think it is safe to assume purchases paid for with gift cards or Apple Account Balances are excluded from cashback.

      • The CR page does not state that purchases paid for in full or in part with gift cards or Apple Account Balances are definitely eligible.

      • Someone also asked CR whether purchases paid for in part or in full with gift cards or Apple Account Balance, but CR had not heard back from Apple.

      • Shopback also states:

      Cashback is calculated based on the Order Value, excluding any GST/Taxes, Delivery Fees, & any amount paid for with Gift Cards.

      Therefore, assume cashback will not be awarded if using gift cards or Apple Account Balances as a payment method.

    • Cashrewards page states "You may not be eligible for Cashback: If a gift card is purchased or used as payment."

        Apologies for the delay in responding to the comments here, but I wanted to get solid confirmation from Apple before committing. Good news, and our terms have been updated accordingly on our merchant page. The proviso of course is that you purchase only eligible items and not anything on the exclusion list. Enjoy :)

        Update 06/10/21: cashback is eligible on purchases paid with gift cards.

        • Is cashback also eligible if we use an Apple Account Associated Balance to pay for purchases?

          • +1

            @WookieMonster: This question never gets officially answered by any reps. :-(

            If I were to hazard a guess, it should be allowed if gift cards are allowed.

            Apple Account Balance = Mixture( Injected Funds via CC/DC, Gift Card Funds )

  • pooooo excludes apple watch

    • Or anything anyone would want to buy at full price from Apple.
      Apple products are much better value at the start of their product cycle (often quite long cycle), 5% off an 18 month old tablet or something really isn't appealing.
      In those cases you can usually beat 5% elsewhere, though not always easy.

  • Does it include Education Store discount?

    • Yes. Added

    • Much cheaper to purchase from a Melb Uni or AOC Apple EDU store

  • +10

    Should indicate what’s included instead…. All new products are excluded

  • Can we pay with gift cards via EPP and get cash back?

      • obsolete, scratch and dent sale cash only
  • +1

    Is paying with apple store gift cards definitely eligible? It states “may not” in the standard cashback tips?

  • +1

    why does cashrewards price jack on certain sites like booking.com ? so dodgy

    • +8

      probably out of topic in this thread, for something like booking.com, it is the website itself that displays different pricing in different conditions, so it's not CR, but booking.com that you must be upset with.

        if thats true, they allow it tho. seems the same to me

        • +5

          Just algorithms. Nothing Cashrewards or anyone can do about it.

          For example, if you google search flights from Sydney to Los Angeles multiple times for multiple dates, it’ll determine that you really want to fly that route… then it’ll show you higher prices for the fights and hotels in the destination city. Because it knows you’ll buy it anyway.

          Thus why you should use incognito, different browser, or clear history/cookies when you’re looking for these prices. But if you’re using Cashrewards or another third party-directed site, it’s basically inevitable.

          • @Dr Fruit: I didn't know this. Thanks.

            • +1

              @smurfz: i know about other sites do this, ive also been using cashrewards for like probably 10 years too. people shouldnt be visiting sites through cashrewards thinking they are getting a discount via cashback when they are being charged more. neg me all you want, its misleading. not you smurfz didnt mean to tag you

        • Most moronic statement I have read today. CR have zero control of product pricings of its partner stores. They are just a cashback middleman.

          • +1

            @DoctorCalculon: I'm kinda with Mitcheo on this (except I know it's not Cashrewards setting the pricing). Perhaps we need some regulation in the cashback industry so retailers can't inflate pricing with such ease between mediums.

            I guess it would be in CRs interest to not have price manipulation happening otherwise people won't bother using the CR site.

            FWIW, I now (well used to) just do a google search of a hotel (which brings up a simple drop down list of all travel site prices). Then make my judgement from that.

            I personally don't like the 25% cashback claims, that then exclude GST. Ie they should be advertised as 22.5% as a full 25% is not achievable

  • is itunes n apple store gift card same or different?

    • +1

      They’re similar in the fact that neither of them are sold by Apple in Australia anymore.

      App Store & iTunes gift cards can now be used for purchases of Products (e.g. iPhones, iPads) and Content (e.g. in-app subscriptions, apps from the App Store, iTunes music, Apple Music subscriptions). I assume it is the same for the Apple Store gift cards, but there is no information in the Apple gift card terms and conditions.

  • If like to know if we can pay by gift card as well. Also when I click through education it initially states 7% but subsequently 5%?

  • -1

    So.. what are iphone 13 prices on the edu store?

    I know it's ineligible for cashback but I'm debating whether it's worth asking a teacher friend to buy one for me. Or if it's better to just use gift cards anyway.

    • +3

      iPhones are not discounted on the Education Store.

  • +1

    will I get cash back if I use apple gift cards to make the purchase

    • Nope

      You may not be eligible for Cashback:

      If a gift card is purchased or used as payment.
      If a coupon code is used that is not listed on Cashrewards.
      If your order is not fully completed online or is later changed.

    • Cashrewards page clearly states "You may not be eligible for Cashback: If a gift card is purchased or used as payment."

      • ahhh thats so sad :(

      • +2

        Damn it! IIRC, gift cards were definitely used to be allowed for the Apple store.

  • +1

    Does anyone else feel these apple cashback deals are pretty crap? They exclude a lot of stuff.

  • YES, 5% of AirPods Pro max

  • Say I made the purchase a few days ago but only signed up to cash rewards today but my order is still in processing. Will i still be eligible or will I have to cancel the order and reorder?

    • If you want to take advantage of this offer, you'll have to cancel your existing order and reorder.

      It would be extremely difficult (if not impossible) to have the existing order attributed to Cashrewards (and therefore you being eligible for cashback) unless you make the order through the link on Cashrewards. Even if you could somehow have the existing order attributed to Cashrewards, you'll only be eligible for 1.5% cashback, as cashback would be calculated based on the date you placed the order, not the date the order was shipped.

  • How come the education pricing is not the same?

    From the AOC link $1294.7

    and from the uni link $1349

    Cashrewards also doesn't seem to be active on the AOC link either. Buy from the normal education page?

    • +1

      The AOC Australian Education Union Store is actually an EPP portal, and as stated on the CR page and the OP’s description, EPP portals are ineligible for cashback.

      • +1


  • So no iphone 13 and no new ipad mini…dont know what else left to buy

  • I am interested to know what are people getting to take advantage of the cashback, as it seems like the ones that people usually buy are not eligible.

    • Buy Now Think Later :D

    • It's good for accessories that rarely get discounted like their cases, apple pencil, magsafe stuff, etc.

  • should i take advantage of this cashback or wait until next year for back to school promotion? thoughts?

  • Anyone know if this may make a re-appearance soon?
    Also, does purchasing via Unidays (the extra 11% offer) count as EPP?
