How to use your gift card

If you scored a gift card for Christmas, lucky you! You can use it at any of our participating retailers Australia-wide. For a full list of retailers, go to The Card Network and click on your gift card type. 

Using your gift card couldn’t be easier. If you’re shopping in store, just swipe it at the eftpos terminal. Select ‘Savings’, enter the PIN on the back of the card and you’re done! (If the transaction amount exceeds the card’s balance, you’ll need to pay the difference.) You can also use it online at participating retailers. Check the ‘How to use’ section for your gift card to find out where you can redeem it online. 

And you don’t need to use your gift card all in one transaction or with one retailer. You can choose how and where you spend your gift. 

Happy shopping!
