    • Yep :)

        Thanks for reply. So i understand it right, 2 x 15 purchase will give me $5+$5 cash back?

        • +2

          Oh sorry I misunderstood, you will only get 1 $5 bonus.
          I meant that you can make multiple transactions to hit the $15 min spend.

          • @gotyourback:

            when you spend $15 or more in a single transaction

            T&C's say otherwise. Do you mean multiple gift cards in one transaction?

          • @gotyourback: there goes my plan to get 33% off

          • @gotyourback:

            in the ShopBack app using Mastercard® ($15 or more must be charged to your Mastercard® credit or debit card to qualify)

            @gotyourback you're sure multiple transactions to hit $15?

          • @gotyourback: Hi Store Rep Your statement contradicts "Receive $5 bonus cashback from ShopBack when you spend $15 or more in a single transaction". I wished you posted this in the original deal as due to quirk of your App I first selected 3 off $5 Super Swap Card. Then changed the payment from cashback to credit card. The App then reset the gift card to 1 off (and I didn't notice) and proceeded to pay for one card only. After I completed payment I noticed my mistake then ordered 3 more.If I had known I would have only purchased 2. Is it possible for you to get the App fixed?

        • +1

          1 per account.

      • +2

        what's the cap? planning to get 100 x ($5 x 3) cards

      • Hey @gotyourback. I tried using my MasterCard debit card, but it returned an error message. I tried to add the card again (in case I made a mistake), but it said the card was already on file and wouldn't let me add it again. So guess it must be right. Since the stacked $5 promo only ran for a short time, I only had 2 mins before midnight. So had to use my account credit instead to get it in on time.

  • +5

    2x$10 Amazon GCs will do.

  • -2

    Done. Not showing on the app as completed. Getting tired of SB this doesn’t work after the DoorDash fiasco.

    • As mentioned already, please give it a bit to update.
      If it hasn't updated by the morning just send me a DM.

  • purchased $20 worth of Ampol gift card with linked Mastercard, hasn't received any notification re $5 bonus?

    • +1

      Give it a bit to update, if nothing by the morning just send me a DM :)

    • Go to bed, when you wake up it will be there. Lol I hope.

  • I bought $30 Amazon card but used around $2 cashback balance. Would it still be OK?

    • +1

      That'll be fine.
      So long as $15 has been charged to your Mastercard® :)

  • hi rep, do I have until 29th nov to purchase after opt in? Or is it limited to the number of rewards claimed?

    • +2

      Until the 29th to purchase :)
      As long as you've opted-in, you've got a spot!

      • -4

        It says mastercard/debit card, does that include visa debit or is it strictly mastercard debit? Will bundll also work?

        • Strictly Mastercard®, Visa will not be approved.
          Any card branded Mastercard® will be eligible :)

          • -1

            @gotyourback: Even non-australian issued ones?


            Coles mastercard gift cards?

            • @sub102: Pre-paid and disposable (one-time use) Mastercards® are excluded from this offer.

              • @bird380: Thanks. How about Non-australian issued mastercards? Asking because the amazon offer says no to them

  • Thanks Op

  • +1

    Coles mastercard gift cards fine?

    • +1


      Pre-paid and disposable (one-time-use) Mastercards® are excluded from this offer.

      • Thanks. Do you know whether they are eligible for the amazon offer?


        • +1

          Not sure but I wasn't willing to risk it myself so just bought a $49 physical gift card with my Debit Mastercard.

  • Just got the $5 cashback :) i had purchased a $15 ebay card

  • bought $10 amazon gift card and then again, will i be eligible? still says $0

    • Mininmum $15

  • +1

    Just received the $5 cashback too. Staying up till midnight was for the free $15 ebay gift card and unfortunately it didnt work out. But this $5 cashback and $10 gift card with $49 amazon purchase with master card that followed soon after made up for it. Phew, lucky I had a mastercard 🤑

  • +1

    Coles mastercard giftcard is NOT eligible as stated in tnc:
    Pre-paid and disposable (one-time use) Mastercards® are excluded from this offer.

  • spent 40 bucks on gift cards and still says 0 dollars spent

    • Give it until the morning to update.
      If nothing by then, send me a DM.


    • edit: went through at noon today

  • All of sudden my accounts don't exist?

    • I just checked on my end and it all looks fine?
      Perhaps try again in a bit / in the morning and reach out if the issue is still happening.

  • May I use overseas debit Mastercard?
    All my Australian bank acc are visa…

  • GYB do you not sleep? I hope SB is paying you extra!

    • Dw I had a nice sleep in 😉

  • Couple of Amazon cards and the promo $5 is already showing also.

  • +1

    The offers are rolling in thick and fast - thanks GYB!

    Added to the BCMT

    • +1

      Cheers legend!

  • SB killing it with the deals!

    • ❤️❤️

  • Thanks OP

    • No problem!

  • mine tracked almost instantly - bought $15 ebay gift card and notified shortly after about the $5 bonus

  • -2

    Is $15 payment via Coles MasterCard eligible for this offer?

  • +1

    I tried adding a payment to the app, got card verification failed with 2 cards.

  • Thanks GYB! I bought Doordash GC with 13% cashback and got the $5 bonus within few minutes

  • Can I opt-out after having opted-in?

    My wife and I each have a MasterCard (physical cards with different cardholder names but the same card number) on the same account.

    I can't add my card as a payment option "The card is currently enrolled to another user" as the missus got in first with her's.

    Would let someone else take my limited opt-in spot.

    • There's no way to opt-out, but no stress.
      If we need to increase the opt-in caps, we will :)

      • No problem. Per comment here I just got the wife to remove the card from her ShopBack account and added mine to my ShopBack so I managed to use it anyway.

        • Mine still says its 'enrolled to another user' did you remove from the app?

  • Hey rep, I just did this without reading properly and used my balance. That said the total I paid was still $16.80 using my Citibank MasterCard debit. Should be all good?

    • +1

      That's fine, as long as you've paid more than $15 on a MasterCard branded credit/debit card you'll be sweet.

  • Anyway I can delete a credit card from the gift cards payment section?

    • +2

      Go to add/manage payments, 3 dots remove.

      Edit: I actually tried that and it tells me it's enrolled to another user…. ok…

      Edit2: I then looked again… and the card is now gone!

  • lol, what GC to buy? So many gift cards bought with so many deals…

    EDIT: went with doordash which we usually use and so another $1.95 on top of this offer, lol, free money!

  • I bought a voucher on the 14th for the revolut bank promo where do I find my purchased cards? Just bought 3 x $5 SBvouchers and it's saying i wont get them til 7/12. I'm not very good with phones can you play the Challenges on PC?

    Just found email for Revolut bought a SBSS all they give me is an ABN and a serial number

  • Followed the instructions and completed the challenge.
    Got the notification that the Challenge Bonus $5 is pending and will only move to available balance after I have updated my withdrawal details

    I had my withdrawal details updated last time I withdrew the rewards and the shopback app is still showing those details as verified (green tick and everything).
    What do I need to do to move the rewards from pending to available?


    • +1

      What do I need to do to move the rewards from pending to available?

      Wait patiently.

  • Purchased 2 X $10 Amazon gift cards and the promotion was applied with no issues, but I cannot see the cards in the portal.

    Are the cards physical or electronic?

    EDIT: Cards were exactly where they are supposed to be and I'm an idiot.

    • hahah I'm glad you found them 😅

  • I have bought a $5 and $10 GC and both have tracked in the SB app, however my earn more tracking still shows no GCs have been purchased. Is there a delay between the perk showing the purchase and SB tracking the GC purchase?
    This is 10m after purchase

    • +1

      Yeah there's a bit of a delay between tracking and challenge status updates.
      If it hasn't updated within 24 hours, send me a DM and I'll check it out.

      • Just got tracking so all good! Now onto the $5 ebay cashback deal

    • How do you buy $5 and $10? There's no adding to a cart?

      • Separate transactions are fine

  • Trying to add my citibank card but keeps saying card verification failed. Any idea why?

  • Hey GYB,

    Can you confirm if the Master card can be removed from the account after purchasing?

    I have been noticing this msg saying that if I remove my last card all pending cashback and progress towards loyalty rewards will be lost.

    Both misses and I joined the challenge but only have 1 Master card in the house, so just want to make sure it's OK to share the card.


    • +2

      Hey @MadMaxBargainRoad,

      Can confirm you are able to remove the card from your account without this impacting existing Cashback.
      It's more of a prompt to say you won't be able to earn Cashback on our In-Store / Gift Card purchases as you don't have a payment method.

      Sharing should be fine in this situation.

      • Fantastic. Appreciate your help as always GYB.

  • Damn it! Just realised I no longer have a mastercard after NAB discontinued Amex!

    What is the easiest way to obtain a Mastercard?

    • Macquarie Bank Mastercard Debit card was the easiest and fastest bank account I've ever applied for. No monthly fees, and no international currency conversion fees for ebay/amazon USA either. I can't remember exactly now, but I vaguely recall being able to use it before I received the physical card. So maybe they email you the card details? Sorry I can't remember more.

  • This is a good deal, I bought and swapped for Coles e-gift cards.

    Although it's a little cumbersome to bring the cards up when it is time to pay. When oh when will Coles have a "Money" app similar to Woolworths?

    • Where are Coles e-gift cards in the app?

      • There is a generic Shopback "Swap Card" which you can then swap into an equivalent gift card at a number of different retailers. Coles is one of them. A little bit of extra work needed.

        • Thanks, yeah - see my question further down the page… I was going to what you did, because I can see the Coles logo… but I can't find any Coles e-cards!?

          • @Faulty P xel: You buy the $15 of Swap Cards, they appear in your SB purchases, then you start the process of converting them into Coles cards.

            • +1

              @Charlie Dont Surf: Thanks. So we can't see a bunch of cards like Coles, until after we buy the Super Swap?

              Also, the title of the deal says "over $15"… did you get your bonus even though you only spent $15?

              • @Faulty P xel: The retailers are listed there in the Shopback Swap Card icon - they include Coles, Djs, Myer, Bunnings, JB, ebay. It says 150 brands.

                I bought 3 x $5 Swap Cards, and have received my bonus.

  • Hey GYB, it says we can make multiple smaller purchases to make up $15. Does this mean we can pay each smaller denomination card separately cause I don’t see an option to add multiple cards to cart. Also is the super swap card eligible?

    • Hey mate, you can make multiple purchases.
      This might just take longer to update in the system as it'll need to recognise multiple transactions.

  • Thanks OP. Got a $25 Super Swap card and the $5 cashback has tracked. Just wondering if I can use it to get the 20% cashback at Myer that's valid until 4pm?

    • +1

      No worries!
      You cannot get Cashback at Myer on orders using Gift Cards (if that's what you're asking).


  • Is a Mastercard debit card with Macquarie Bank considered a "pre-paid Mastercard"?

    • +1

      A debit card is not a prepaid card

  • The app says you can swap the Super Swap card to a gift card of EQUAL VALUE at 150+ brands… and one logo displayed is Coles… Since I have to spend over $15, I thought I'd get a $25 or $30 Super Swap card, then change it to a Coles card. So I went to check what values Coles cards there are first, so I can buy a Super Swap card of the same denomination for a direct swap. But Coles is not listed. So how do you change a Super Swap card into a Coles gift card when Coles isn't listed?
