Woolworths WISH gift cards

Where to buy them, what you can buy and how to check the balance of your WISH gift card.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

Woolworths WISH gift cards come pre-loaded with cash you can spend at participating stores, including Woolworths supermarkets, Big W and participating Caltex Woolworths outlets.

You can buy WISH gift cards in-store and online – or use rewards points to get gift cards through a loyalty program like Qantas Frequent Flyer, ANZ Rewards, Citi Rewards and NAB rewards (to name a few). Let's take a closer look at how it all works.

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
  • Caltex Woolworths (excluding Caltex Woolworths Metro)

Note that not all Caltex Woolworths outlets accept WISH gift cards, but you can check the Woolworths website for participating outlets in your area or call the Woolworths gift cards team on 1300 101 234.

Can I use WISH gift cards online?

Yes, you can use a digital or physical WISH gift 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 between $5 and $500 value 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 your 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 online through the Woolworths website, in-store at participating Woolworths Group stores or through another store like GIFTA or Prezzee.

Money Hack: Get a discounted WISH gift card through your industry memberships

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

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 20,730 points.

What should I consider before getting a Woolworths WISH gift card?

Make sure you keep the following factors in mind to get the most out of a WISH gift card.

  • Digital delivery time. If you buy a digital WISH gift card through Woolworths, you or the recipient 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, because it can vary between programs.
  • Fixed value. Once you have ordered a WISH gift card, you can't request for the amount to be changed.
  • 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.
  • Simply Groceries gift card. As the name says, you can use this card for groceries at Woolworths supermarkets.
  • 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.

Frequently asked questions

How do I use a WISH gift card?

These cards work quite like prepaid debit cards, given that you have to swipe them at EFTPOS terminals to make payments. Any leftover balance remains on the card, which you can use later. If the balance on the card is not enough to pay for a particular purchase, you can pay the difference using cash or a credit or debit card.

Is there a limit to the number of WISH gift cards I can use at once?

Most participating stores give you the ability to use multiple cards to pay for a single purchase. Bear in mind that certain outlets don't allow the use of more than 1 gift card per purchase.

How do I find out about my card's existing balance and expiry date?

Woolworths gift cards do not expire. You can check the balance by visiting the Woolworths Gift Cards website and logging in to your account. You can also see your gift card balance on the Woolworths Money app. Otherwise, you can contact the customer service team on 1300 665 249 or ask a staff member at any Woolworths Group Store to help you.

Can I buy alcohol, cigarettes or tobacco products using a WISH gift card?

Yes, you can use your WISH gift card to pay for these items at participating Woolworths Group stores, including Woolworths Supermarkets, Big W and Dan Murphy's.

If I buy a WISH eGift card and have it emailed to someone, how will they know that it's legitimate?

The email will be sent from "Woolworths Gift Cards" and the subject line will say: "You've received a Woolworths eGift card."

Can I track my Woolworths WISH gift card order?

Yes. If you were logged in to your Woolworths Gift Cards account while making the purchase, you can track the status of the order under the 'My orders' section of your account. If you don't have an account or made the order as a guest, you can contact the Gift Cards team on 1300 10 1234. Provide them with the 8-digit order number and confirmation and they can confirm the status of your gift card.
