    A reminder of the process to unlink your card from True Rewards if you wish to do so:

    1. Go to payment for another gift card.
    2. Go to checkout - you'll see your card details just before hitting pay.
    3. Click the bin icon and it will be removed.

    Any GC with denomination under $30 available? Last time I checked, all up $30+.

    • None in my quick search

    • +2

      I believe Kayo has a $25 denomination.

      • how do you opt out of sms it doesn't seem to let me

        • You simply don't select it.

          • -4

            @tightarse: it selects it automatically

            • +4

              @froogletom: Don't put a mobile number down. You may have automatically filled it.

            • +2

              @froogletom: I just tested a few cards. It shows (optional) in the field. See here.

            • @froogletom: It is not mandatory to provide a mobile number in order to complete an order via Cashrewards’ gift card portal.

              The only reason you enter a mobile number when purchasing a gift card is to opt into SMS delivery.

            • @froogletom: Once it automatically filled for me, didn't realised until I selected a text. I remember to delete the mobile number every time there is auto fill.

        • just remove your phone number

    • +1

      Yup you are right(no useful GC under $30), I'd skip this time already spending too much money. Plus Skiping deals might get people one of the targated special deals

      • +2

        Plus Skiping deals might get people one of the targated special deals

        LOL! That is like praying to the gift card gods: "I have been abstinent for X months. Please choose me this time."
        I don't think that is how the CR algorithm works.

        • I have been abstinent for X months
          i think that and not activating smaller bonus cashbacks

          is the key for getting the targeted offers

  • Thanks TA! Happy Friday (:

  • Are most of the gift cards $30 now ?

    • +6

      my thoughts too. Shopback you can get ones for $5 if you want….$30 min seems too high

  • +1

    Just wondering why we have to pay $0.10 for sms?

    • +7

      It's optional, don't enter a mobile number.

  • +13


    Went with Amazon $30 at 1%, seems the best way to go. Unless you want eBay gift cards over Amazon, then choice gift card $30 at 1.5% is better.

    Edit 130pm: Choice gift cards do contain Amazon (confirmed), so grab that $30 at 1.5%, rather than Amazon at 1%. Extra $0.15 cashback.

    • +1

      Choice GC is swappable to Amazon GC

      • I don't think it is.

      • Are u sure? Doesn't show on the picture that we can swap to Amazon?

      • sure?

        • +1

          I just checked, it's there.

          • @Hiphopopotamus: yes it is !

          • @Hiphopopotamus: thanks a lot. got Choice too :)

          • @Hiphopopotamus: How do u find what are other retailers in the choice GC program? I only can see a few on the Cashrewards website

            • @2hit6: I don't think you can, I only saw the full list when I went to swap it after purchasing.

      • My bad, updated my comment. I can also confirm it is there. I also assumed it wasn't as it wasn't listed in the text or the picture.

        I will update the wiki now to include it.

        • +12

          For anyone else wondering like me, here's a screenshot of the complete list.

          Also, looks like you can only swap for one Amazon card, not able to split into multiple cards like the others. (Doesn't mention anything about this on True Rewards, but on Cash Rewards says can only purchase one Amazon card per account per day)

    • Thanks, been scouring the site to see which cards it can be swapped for to see if Amazon was on the list. There's no definitive list I could find anywhere before purchase, and doesn't say it includes all stores.

    • +1

      Thanks! I always find choice GC a bit vauge in what they can convert while Shopback GC have the retailers clearly listed

  • +3

    Amazon 11% not too bad. Only $30, better than nothing

  • thanks TA, got for myself and partner

  • Also, won't take any of my credit cards, saying card number is incorrect.

    • +11

      An 11% saving on something that you are always likely to spend on is annoying?

      Thanks for the bonus TA. A grateful person here.

      • +1

        Rereading, it's a lot of whinier than I intended. I'm used to being about to get GCs at lower denominations so had got my hopes up for a ridiculous deal especially when the deal is for any gift card. For whatever reason the default GC value on my screen was $120 so it was disappointing it stopped at $30.

        • +2

          While $30 is minimum card you can buy, if you get the Choice card can swap for multiple cards, Amazon starts at $10 and eBay at $5. Extra 0.5% cashback too.

          • @bamzero: Wish I knew that beforehand. Decided not to procrastinate for a change.

        A grateful person here.

        Ditto. 💯

        Thank you very much for this, Mr @tightarse. A great deal to kick off the month.

  • +3

    Should add minimum spend $30

  • +10

    Great! Just got myself a Coles $50 voucher. Cashrewards helping me lower my cost of living more than Scomo.

  • Thanks TA

  • Thank you Mr. TA

  • 11% off on Amazon card isn't bad ($3.30 off $30) but it would have been great to have lower denomination cards of Amazon, TA. Please try for that.

  • Amazon thanks you for contribution :)

  • +1

    Hope Cashrewards will add Choice Gift Card to its gift card page.

    • they do have choice gift card

      • Are they the same one? Just different design?

        • +2

          I think it is the same you can swap to amazon and many other gift card

  • Thanks bought amazon

  • +3

    "$3 Bonus Promo Terms - please read carefully - it will save a lot of questions" this sounds like it's coming from a guy whose been asked a lot of stupid questions.

  • +1

    Thanks Op. Got too much gift card already so might give this a miss for my fellow ozbargainers

  • Amazon $30 card done thanks :)

  • +2

    genuine question, why is true rewards so much less competitive than shopback gc or even the random reward schemes from other places now (nrma, suncorp… etc.)

  • Thanks TA. Bought Amazon GC $30.

  • +2

    Took the $30 Amazon for 11.5% discount via Choice GC, Thanks TA.

  • +1

    Ta TA!

  • +1

    For me, Cashrewards has choice GC
    ShopBack has super swap GC

    Love both. Whoever has a challenge cash back campaign. I always fall into it. :) but sometimes missing due to amount cap. :(

  • +1

    $30 Amazon card for me. Effectively about 11% off which is pretty good.

  • +4

    I like how this one is obtainable! Many 'thousands' are catered for, not posted at witching hour & actually lasts more than 30 minutes.. Ty 😁

    • +1

      Obtainable because lower value (that is, return) and hence demand than the SB ones.

      • +2

        Am aware.

        Still better than continually missing out

    Thanks TA - have added to the BCMT

    Hi guys. Activation cap now reached (2:57pm). For those that successfully activated, you now have until 5pm AEDT to purchase your card. Any purchases after 5pm will unfortunately have the bonus declined. Also, due to the amount of traffic at True Rewards during the promo, around 20 to 30 transactions may not have yet reported to CR accounts. Please don't worry, as these will be captured in the next batch report from True Rewards just after midnight. Any issues at all, please PM me. Have a great weekend!

    • I activated early and tried to buy gift card now at 4:35 AEDT but it said offer expired. Can you explain why?

  • Great deal again!

  • +1

    That ran out quick…

  • +2

    Thanks TA. Hopefully future deals are also based on first-come-first-served activation. Nothing more upsetting than seeing the message “sorry you’re not eligible” on those targeted deals :( Although I did miss out on this one coz wasn’t checking my phone…

  • I activated before it got expired, butnow when i go to the website, it says it has reached the activation limit. I presume mine is still valid even though i havent purchased the gift card yet? as long as i had activated it, i have till 5pm right?

  • Did i miss a gift card deal :(

  • Can we purchase with a Coles Gift Mastercard (and still get cashback)? I've just linked one successfully… thought CR didn't accept them? @tightarse

    • If it works, then great. I can only go by the terms that True Rewards has given us. I have no idea if that card generates a PIN to use with purchase:

      You will be redirected to True Rewards when clicking 'Shop Now'. Collection of payment and distribution of Digital Gift Cards is provided by True Rewards. For more information, please review their Help Centre, Privacy Policy, and Terms & Conditions. True Rewards does not allow purchases or payments made with prepaid Visa or MasterCard gift cards.

    • +2

      If you can link the card, you should be able to pay for the gift card without any issues.

      It looks like True Rewards is not properly enforcing this policy (not yet, anyway).

      • They are enforcing the policy stated above.

        The PIN does not come through in the preauth transaction description when using Revolut.

        • +1

          I added a Vanilla Visa gift card today, and I was able to see the four digit verification code in the pending transaction's description.

          I know for a fact that you cannot see the four digit verification code on a Coles Gift Mastercard, because the online portal only shows the first 10 or so characters of the description on their online portal, which means you have to call the Coles Gift Mastercard team to actually get the four digit verification code (because the Coles Gift Mastercard team can see the full pending transaction description on their end).

          I'm not sure why you wouldn't be able to see it for your Revolut card…

          • +1


            I'm not sure why you wouldn't be able to see it for your Revolut card

            No 4-digit PIN in the description when I used my one-time use virtual card. $1 is still locked up in preauth.

            I didn't have the patience to reach out to their support team via chat to find out if they could see the entire string.
            Maybe worthwhile investigating next time.

          • @WookieMonster: Damn, I should've also tried with one of my Vanilla Visa cards… didn't think we could even use them for online transactions going by comments in the Coles deal for them a while back.

    • So I was able to link in Settings here https://www.cashrewards.com.au/member/link-card

      But not able to link when checking out for the gift card as it requires a 4-digit code for authorisation which doesn't show up in transaction history for the gift card, even though the charge of $1 still went through…

      So looks like a no go. Hopefully I get the $1 back, which I assume I will.

        You're confusing activating a card on Cashrewards for in-store shopping, with buying a gift card via True Rewards.

        • Ahh true, I see now. I somehow missed where it says "instore" above the cards.

  • Activated earlier but can't load the website to buy it WTF.

    • Which website? Been working smoothly all day. Were you using this link? If you're still having issues, please PM me.


      • Has this expired

        • Yes, any purchases after 5pm AEDT will not be receiving the bonus.

          • @tightarse: Hi TA, I added to cart/was at payment screen at 5:00pm, took a while for CC to process but finally did few seconds after 5:01pm. Thoughts on whether it was too late?

  • Thanks TA.

  • +4

    I can’t believe I activated the offer, went all the way to purchase my gift card, got interrupted by a phone call… forgot all about it until 5 minutes ago… and now it’s too late sigh

    • +1

      Similar issue here, I only saw the subject while I was working so I activated straight away thinking I could use it tonight (as normally once you activate you have until midnight that day to complete the purchase). Unfortunately not this time.

  • +4

    Ah it ended at 5pm, (profanity).
