What should I consider before buying or using a Coles gift card?
If you’re thinking of giving someone a gift card from Coles or have received one, take note of the following factors:
- Store acceptance. Most Coles gift cards can only be used for spending at specific stores. The Coles Gift Mastercard is the only option that is accepted as a payment option around the world. Keep this in mind and check the acceptance before making a purchase so you can choose a gift card that suits your needs.
- Load amounts. There is a minimum load amount of $5 for Coles-branded gift cards. When it comes to maximum load amounts, the Coles Gift Mastercard allows you to load up to $1,000, while other Coles gift cards allow you to load up to $500 of value.
- Expiry. Coles gift cards are valid for two years from the date of issue. Any balance remaining on the card after this date will not be available for use. You can check the expiry date of your card by visiting the service desk in-store at Coles, or by calling 1300 304 990.
- Lost or stolen cards. Coles gift cards are treated as cash and will not be replaced or refunded if they are lost or stolen.
- Faulty or damaged cards. Faulty or damaged Coles gift cards will not be reissued unless the faults are a result of the production process or otherwise due to the fault of Coles Group, its agents or contractors or a participating retailer.
- Purchasing fee. The Coles Gift Mastercard costs $5 to buy. Other Coles gift cards do not have a fee for purchase, but may attract additional charges for postage if bought online.
- No cash out. You won’t be able to use your Coles gift card to get cash out at the checkout. You also won’t be able to use a gift card to purchase other gift cards.
- Credit card fees. If you buy your gift card with a credit card, it will usually be processed as a cash advance transaction and attract additional fees.
- No rewards. Coles gift cards are not eligible to earn Flybuys points. Similarly, if you use a reward credit card to buy a Coles gift card, you won’t earn points for the payment.
Comparison of Coles Credit Cards
While Coles offers a wide variety of gift cards suited to different occasions and needs, they all have specific terms and conditions that should be considered before you make a purchase. If you’re interested in gift cards that can be used elsewhere, you may also want to consider a Woolworths WISH gift card that offers different store acceptance options to Coles.
