The eftpos gift card works just like your bank card, you simply swipe at the terminal, select savings and key in the PIN as printed on the back of the card. The transaction amount should be the same as or less than the value of the available funds on the card. If the transaction amount is more than the value, see question 9 for how to complete the sale.
Quite handily, they can be used wherever eftpos is accepted right across Australia. Unfortunately, it is not possible to use eftpos gift cards outside of Australia. Some retailers, at their discretion, may decline gift cards that are not their own but these are few and far between.

Your expiry date is printed on the back of your card, however, you must activate your card before use. Your fund will be forfeited if the card is not activated before the activation expiry date. Once activated your card can be used until all funds are spent of the card expiry date has passed. See Question 14 for further information about card expiry.
None! Activation and balance checks are fee-free and we cover all fees associated with purchases so you can get the most out of your reward amount.
An eftpos gift card is neither a credit nor a debit card. Eftpos gift cards are similar to gift vouchers or store cards whereby they are issued with a fixed, pre-paid, stored value amount as determined at the time of purchase. Eftpos gift cards differ from store cards in that they can be used anywhere eftpos is accepted, which is about 650,000 locations across Australia. The value of any purchases made is deducted from the available amount until the card reaches a $0 balance.
At this point in time, unfortunately, it is not possible to make online purchases with eftpos gift cards.
No, eftpos gift cards can only be spent up to the value issued on the card. If you try to spend more than the available amount on the card, the transaction will be declined and a fee may be issued. See question 9 for more information on how to use the card on transactions greater than the stored value of the card.
If the purchase value is more than the value of the eftpos gift card, you simply need to ask the cashier to split the payment and pay the difference first, either with cash or another card. For example, if your gift card is valued at $50 but you want to use it towards a transaction amount of $70, you would ask to pay the difference ($20) first and then pay the remaining amount ($50) with the eftpos gift card.
Funds are fixed to the specified eftpos gift card and cannot be transferred.
In short, no. The card can only be used to make a purchase at an eftpos terminal and cannot be used for taking cash out either at an ATM or as an addition to an in-store purchase. For example, if the value of the purchase is $20 and the card is valued at $50, you cannot make the purchase and request the remaining $30 as cash back. Any attempts to withdraw cash will incur a fee.
No, your eftpos gift card is what's known as a 'single load' card, meaning the card can be loaded once and can only be used while within the expiry dates or until the loaded funds are depleted. See Question 6 for further information.
It certainly does. The PIN is printed on the back of the card alongside the card number and the expiry date.
The funds on a prepaid eftpos or visa gift card are only valid until the expiry date as printed on the back of the card. The card must be activated before the activate end date. Any remaining funds at the time of expiration are forfeited so we encourage recipients to spend all available funds before expiration.
If a card is lost or stolen, this should be reported to Card Services on 1800 446 347 as immediately as possible. A replacement card may be reissued but fees and conditions apply.
Each merchant will handle returns as per their own policies and may issue a cash refund or store credit. Please be aware that Rewards Come True is not responsible for returns or credits off of purchases.
If the restaurant accepts eftpos payments, then the card can absolutely be used there. We'd recommend checking with the restaurant either before being seated or at the time of booking. If the dining bill exceeds the amount on the card, the payment will need to be split (see question 9 for more information). Again, it is a good idea to check with the restaurant if split payment is possible.
No, eftpos gift cards cannot be used for recurring payments or direct debit bills. However, if it is a once-off payment and is made in person, for example, at the post office, where the store accepts eftpos payments, you may then be able to use the card for this.
The back of the eftpos gift card (and the gift card wallet if you received one) have information on how to activate and use the card along with information on how to get in touch with us if you require more details.
