Woolworths WISH gift cards

You can use WISH gift cards at Woolworths, Big W, Dan Murphy’s and other participating stores. Here’s how they work, where to buy them and how to check the balance.

Woolworths WISH gift cards are loaded with funds you can use to pay for all or part of your spending with a participating Woolworths Group store or partner.

You can buy WISH gift cards in-store and online. Or, if you're part of a loyalty program like Qantas Frequent Flyer, ANZ Rewards, Citi Rewards and NAB Rewards, you could redeem points for gift cards.

Where can I use WISH gift cards?

You can use a WISH gift card at participating Woolworths Group stores, including:

  • Woolworths supermarkets
  • Big W
  • BWS
  • Dan Murphy's
  • Participating EG Ampol fuel sites
  • ALH Group

As not all EG Ampol service stations accept WISH gift cards, you can check the Woolworths website for participating outlets in your area or call the Woolworths gift cards team on 1300 10 1234.

Can I use WISH gift cards online?

Yes, you can use a WISH gift card or eGift card when you're shopping online at participating Woolworths Group stores by choosing "Gift card" as the payment option.

You'll then need to enter the 19-digit card number and 4-digit PIN assigned to your WISH gift card, which you'll find on the physical card or in your emails (if it's a digital card).

What are the features of Woolworths WISH gift cards?

Some of the key features include:

  • Pre-loaded value. WISH gift cards give you a value between $5 and $500 per card.
  • Physical cards or digital cards. You have a choice between getting a physical gift card or an eGift card that's sent to you by email.
  • Split payments. You don't have to use the entire balance on your WISH gift card in a single shop. And if the balance on your gift card doesn't cover your purchase, you can use another payment method to cover the difference.
  • Choice of card designs. WISH gift cards offer different designs, which is handy if you're getting one as a present for someone.
  • Balance details and transaction history. You can check your balance through the Woolworths website, on the Woolworths app or by calling 1300 665 249. If you're in a Woolworths Group store, you can also ask a team member to check it for you.

Where can I get WISH gift cards?

You can buy WISH gift cards in-store at participating Woolworths Group stores or online through the Woolworths website and other sites like GIFTA or Prezzee.

Money Hack: How to get a discounted WISH gift card through industry memberships

Some services offer discounted WISH gift cards to members, such as NRMA, RACV, RACQ, RAA and many unions that offer access to Member Advantage. You can also get discounted gift cards through AGL Rewards and other rewards programs.

Depending on the offer, you could get up to 5% off your WISH gift card. For a $100 gift card, that means you'd save $5.

How to use reward points to get a WISH gift card

The points you get through frequent flyer programs or rewards credit cards can often be redeemed for WISH gift cards – including through Qantas Frequent Flyer, ANZ Rewards, Bankwest More Rewards, Citi Rewards and NAB Rewards.

Just log into your account and search the rewards to see what WISH gift cards are available. If you find one you want, follow the steps to redeem it with your points.

This can be a handy way to use reward points for yourself or as a gift for someone else – and also makes it easy to work out the actual value of your points. But keep in mind that there may be more valuable ways to redeem points.

How many points do I need to get a WISH gift card?

The number of points is different for each rewards program. It can also vary based on the type of gift card (and the value that's loaded onto the card).

But as an example, the Citi Rewards program offers a $100 WISH digital gift card for 20,900 points and Qantas Frequent Flyer offers a $100 gift card for 21,820 points.

What to consider before getting a Woolworths WISH gift card

  • Digital delivery time. If you buy a digital WISH gift card through Woolworths, you (or the person you're giving it to) will get it by email. The eGift card could be sent within 10 minutes of completing your order, but may take up to 48 hours.
  • Physical card delivery times. If you buy a physical WISH gift card through Woolworths online, it could take up to 10 business days to arrive by registered post ($5.50 fee) or up to 6 business days to arrive by secure courier ($14.99).
  • Rewards program processing times. If you redeem rewards points for a physical or digital WISH gift card, check the rewards program website to see how long it will take to arrive.
  • Fixed value. Once you order a WISH gift card, you can't add money to it.
  • Eligible purchases. WISH gift cards let you buy most everyday items, but you won't be able to use them to buy other gift cards or vouchers, lotto products, donations or charity products.

Other types of Woolworths gift cards

As well as WISH gift cards, you can buy the following gift cards from Woolworths Group stores.

  • Branded gift cards. These gift cards can only be used at the individual store. For example, Woolworths supermarkets or Big W.
  • Essentials gift card. This gift card can be used to buy everyday items like groceries, cleaning products and school supplies at Woolworths.

  • The card with heart. This card is designed especially to brighten someone's day, and can be used in the same way as a regular WISH gift card.
  • Marley Spoon and Dinnerly gift cards. If you want to try out a meal kit service, these gift cards give you a way to taste test options from Marley Spoon or Dinnerly.
  • Variety gift cards (in-store only). When you're shopping at Woolworths, Big W or other stores, you'll usually see a wider variety of gift cards for popular brands like JB Hi-Fi, Bonds, THE ICONIC and more.
