Where to buy Netflix gift cards in Australia

Give the gift of endless entertainment with a Netflix gift card.

No matter how well you know your friends and family, you've probably found yourself stumped over what to buy them at some point in your life. And as the years go by, it can become increasingly difficult to find the perfect gift that your loved one hasn't already bought for themselves.

This is where gift cards come in. More personal and meaningful than straight-up cash yet more practical than a generic box of chocolates, gift cards are ideal for everyone from acquaintances to your cherished partner.

It's not just the big retail chains getting in on the gift card craze either. Virtually any physical store, online retailer or digital service supports the handy format these days, even Australia's favourite entertainment service Netflix.

Yep, you can now take care of birthdays, Christmases and any other special occasions by buying a prepaid dose of Netflix goodness. Simply purchase a Netflix gift card of your preferred denomination and the lucky recipient will be able to redeem it for the Netflix subscription of their choice. It doesn't matter if they're already subscribed to Netflix either – in that case, the card will simply add the desired number of months to their existing subscription.

What Netflix gift cards are available?

Netflix gift cards are available in denominations of $20, $30 or $50. You can also purchase multiple gift cards and redeem them to the same account to stock up on a Netflix subscription if you desire.


Where can I buy Netflix gift cards?

Netflix gift cards are currently available from a wide range of outlets, including the following:

  • 7-Eleven
  • Woolworths
  • Target
  • Coles
  • Big W
  • EB Games
  • Australia Post
  • Officeworks
  • eBay

How do I redeem my Netflix gift card?

If you've been given an Australian Netflix gift card, redeeming it is easy. Just go to netflix.com/redeem and enter the 11-digit code from your gift card into the box presented. You will then need to create a new Netflix account (or log in to an existing account, if you have one). Best of all, you won't have to enter any payment details as part of the sign-up process; the gift card will suffice as all the payment information required to start streaming.

Existing Netflix subscribers will want to be aware of one unusual quirk with Netflix gift cards: if you're subscribed to the service through Google Play or iTunes, you won't be able to redeem any Netflix gift cards to your account. Instead, you'll need to cancel your existing account and start a fresh one with a gift card, which is hardly an ideal solution.

Do Netflix gift cards expire?

Thankfully, Netflix gift cards aren't like many other gift cards out there since they last forever – there's no expiry and no reason you can't stockpile them for a rainy day.

What if the balance of my Netflix gift card doesn't cover a full month?

If you've only got a couple of dollars left on your Netflix gift card, don't worry – you can still get your fill of BoJack Horseman. Netflix will simply extend your subscription for as long as the remaining balance covers, even if that's only part of a month.

    If you don’t have a bank card can you stream Netflix only through gift cards and if so, on a smart tv with capability – how long do the cards last?

      Hi Erin,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder. Yes you can use Netflix gift cards if you don’t have a bank account. The gift cards don’t expire. So as long as the gift card amount is enough for one month, for instance, $9.99, you can use it on held accounts and it can be used in any country with Netflix.

      You can stream Netflix for as long as your gift card balance lasts. You will be sent via email a notification when your gift card balance is low on your account and you will still be able to stream movies and TV shows for a partial month. Once you’ve consumed your balance, you’d need to add another gift card or payment method to your account to continue service.

      If you need anything else, please send us a message anytime.

      Cheers,
      Joel

      Hi New2this,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      You need to have an internet connection to redeem.
      To redeem your Netflix Gift Card:
      1. Go to netflix.com/redeem.
      2. Scratch the foil off the back of your card gently with a coin.
      3. Enter the 11-digit PIN code.

      Hope this information helped.

      Cheers,
      Arnold

      Hello Brad,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes you may use gift cards as a form of payment to your Netflix subscription. You may even use more than one gift card and your balance will increase with each gift card you add. You may check your Billing Details page to see your available balance.

      In addition, you will receive service for as long as your gift card balance lasts. We will remind you by email when your gift card balance is low on your account and you will be able to stream movies and TV shows for a partial month. Once your gift card balance is consumed, you will need to add another gift card or payment method to your account to continue service.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers!
      Chester

      I already have a Netflix account and my credit card is directly debited to pay my monthly fee. I was given a Netflix gift card, can I use this to pay my membership fee instead of my credit card? How can I redeem this Netflix gift card?
      Thanks!

      Hi Riv!

      Thank you for visiting Finder.com.au.

      Yes, you can.

      Just login to your Netflix account and enter your gift card code on the Your Account page. The balance of your gift card will be added to your account and your next payment will be taken from the gift card balance.

      Hope this helps!

      Jason

      Hi Diana,

      Netflix Gift Cards do not expire and that information is printed on the back of each card.

      Hope that helps,

    How much time does a $50 gift card buy ?

    • finder Customer Care
      BrodieMay 23, 2016Staff

      Hi Ken,

      That depends on which Netflix plan you subscribe to. If you’re registered for the $8.99 per month (basic), $50 will get you five months worth of Netflix. When you buy a gift card, you are purchasing a dollar amount to use for your monthly bill.

      Thanks,
      Brodie

    I buy a $20 card each month and use the $14.99 does the left over $5 accumulate… If so how do I use it..

    • finder Customer Care
      BrodieJanuary 29, 2016Staff

      Hi Sue,

      Yes, your remaining balance accumulates on your account. If you’re purchasing $20 gift cards, simply skip every fourth payment (as you would have accumulated enough for a free month after three payments).

      Thanks,
      Brodie

    Can I use a Netflix card to set up an account without giving credit card details.

    U

    • finder Customer Care
      BrodieJanuary 4, 2016Staff

      Hi Carol,

      Unfortunately, you do need to provide credit card details to sign up to Netflix Australia. Netflix is a subscription service. Without credit card details as identification, users could exploit the free 1-month trial that everyone gets on sign-up by simply starting a new account every month. Though you need a credit card to sign up, you can avoid paying your monthly bill on credit card by purchasing Netflix gift cards.

      Thanks,
      Brodie

    why does Netflix want my credit card details when I am subscribing to a FREE month. This is a pain in the arse. It is preventing me from getting Netflix. These people who set these methods in place should use their brains for a change.

    • finder Customer Care
      BrodieOctober 12, 2015Staff

      Hi Kenn,

      Though you’re asked to register your credit card details at sign up, Netflix will not charge you until after the free month is up. This is mostly for convenience. If you like the service, you simply let it roll on; if not you can easily cancel the service after the free month.

      Thanks,

      Brodie
