Pros

  • Receive a $50 eGift Card when you apply by 30 June 2018 and make an eligible purchase by 31 July 2018.
  • Enjoy a waived annual fee for the first year.
  • This card comes with a 0% p.a. for 14 months balance transfer offer.
  • You'll also receive cashback in the form of Woolworths Shopping Cards.
  • Get 10% off on your first Woolworths shop on selected dates each month.
  • This card provides automatic room upgrade and allows late checkout at Visa Luxury hotels.

Cons

  • Rewards are automatically redeemed in four-month intervals. This gives the cardholder minimal control over the frequency of redeeming rewards and may restrict people from using the voucher when it's convenient for them.
  • The promotional balance transfer offer reverts to the standard cash advance rate of 21.99% p.a. at the end of the introductory period. This means that if you're unable to pay your balance by the end of the promotional period, you'll begin accruing interest on the balance and could lose the savings made initially.

    Woolworths Card quote. “When you earn 4,000 points, you’ll receive a $20 Shopping Card every 4 months.”
    So if I earn more than 4000 points (say 12000) will I receive a shopping card to the value of $60 every 4 months?
    Is this card compatible with Samsung Pay?

      Hi Lindsay,

      Thanks for your message and for visiting finder – the leading comparison website & general information service built to give you advice in your buying decision needs. How are you doing today?

      To answer your questions:

      1. So if I earn more than 4000 points (say 12000) will I receive a shopping card to the value of $60 every 4 months?

      Points are subject to the Woolworths Shopping Card Rewards Program Terms and Conditions. As per their website,“Every 4 months, points are automatically converted to a Woolworths Shopping Card redeemable at participating Woolworths Group stores. Participating stores may change from time to time. The Shopping Card expires 90 days after date of issue. Minimum of 4,000 points is required to receive a $20 Shopping Card”

      You may confirm with the card company if you will receive more than 1 card if you earn more than $4000 points.

      Is this card compatible with Samsung Pay?

      You can use the Woolworths Money app to make payments with your card. As for Samsung Pay, you may have to inquire this with the card company.

      Please note that we’re a product comparison website and we do not represent any company we feature on our site. We provide general information on products to assist you in your buying decision process hence we cannot recommend product / service that is rightfully fit for you.

      Hope this helps! Feel free to message us anytime should you have further questions.

    Is there a redemption vs earnings ratio for each card?
    For example, one point per dollar spend will earn 0.015 redemption value for say a gift card. I understand that a gift card redemption ratio MAY differ from airline miles for a card but let’s consider a gift card or cash back if the same.
    This ratio would enable a benefits comparison.

    Hello,
    if i do a balance transfer which has 14 months interest free, do i still get 55 days interest free on all other purchases made during that 14 months?

    • Staff
      RenchJanuary 19, 2018Staff

      Hi Wendy,

      Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that we are not affiliated with Woolworths or any company we feature on our site and so we can only offer you general advice.

      With the Woolworths Everyday Platinum Credit Card, you will not receive the interest-free days on purchases unless your balance has been paid in full (excluding any Interest Free Finance promotions). This means that while you carry a balance transfer debt, you will not be able to take advantage of interest-free days on purchases.

      Best regards,
      Rench

      Hi Trina, thanks for your inquiry.

      You can load your credit card into a ‘credit’ balance, but not through a Woolworths. You will have to transfer to your credit card account online or through branch.

    What constitutes an “eligible purchase”?

      HaroldOctober 19, 2017Staff

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      1 point earned for every $1 spent on other eligible purchases. Points are not earned on cash advances, balance transfers or other restricted transactions detailed in the Woolworths Shopping Card Rewards Program Terms and Conditions.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

      ChrisOctober 20, 2017

      Thanks Harold. The reason I was asking is because you need to make an “eligible purchase” before you get the gift card bonus thingy. Is an “eligible purchase” basically anything other than those things you’ve listed, plus what appears at the Woolworths site (e.g. gambling transactions, etc.)?

    • Staff
      HaroldOctober 20, 2017Staff

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Yes, in general it has an exclusion. To make sure you only avail the eligible purchases you would need to read first the Woolworths Shopping Card Rewards Program Terms and Conditions.

      I hope this information has helped.

      You can convert your earned $10 Woolworths Dollar into 870 Qantas Points.

      Please note that you’ll need, at least, 2000 Woolworths points to redeem $10 Woolworths Dollars.

      Once you convert your $10 Woolworths Dollar into 870 Qantas Points, please allow up to 7 days for your Qantas Points to appear in your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.

      I hope this helps.
