What is the expiry period on my card?
Your expiry date is printed on the back of your card, which covers both activation and spend time. See Question 14 for further information about card expiry.
Are there any fees on purchases made with my eftpos Gift Card?
None! Activation and balance checks are fee-free and we cover all fees associated with purchases so you can get the most out of your reward amount.
Is an eftpos Gift Card a Credit or Debit card?
An eftpos Gift Card is neither a Credit nor a Debit card. Eftpos gift cards are similar to gift vouchers or store cards whereby they are issued with a fixed, pre-paid, stored value amount as determined at the time of purchase. Eftpos gift cards differ from store cards in that they can be used anywhere eftpos is accepted, which is about 650,000 locations across Australia. The value of any purchases made is deducted from the available amount until the card reaches a $0 balance.
