Garbage product. Total scam.
I was given a $150 Australia Post Gift Card by the University of Sydney but I cannot use it to purchase anything online. Amazon, Ebay, etc. It's a total scam. What's the point of selling a product that cannot be used anywhere? How about giving people a list of places it can be used in, eh?
worst thing in the world
What a goddamn waste of f****** time
have to create an account just to check my balance. website is a pain.
the person who created this needs to be fired.
Worst gift card ever
I have received this gift card as part of an award, but you cannot use the card on any online merchant. I have tried this now with paypal, amazon, ebay, myer, iconic, Woolworths, all to no avail. All merchants have declined this card.
I do not see the point of a gift card you cannot use. What a waste of $200 bucks.
Australia Post Mastercard Gift Card- Accepted Nowhere...
This is the worst gift I have ever received. I have $95 balance on the card and I have yet to find any vendor that accepts it. I have tried multiple online transactions and have been met with a similar message to try an alternate form of payment. In store vendors' card machines can't even recognise the card. Unless your aim is to give a gift to someone you would like to annoy, avoid this product at all costs
DO NOT BUY IT
I got the Aus Post gift card of $250 from a friend in Nov 2020.
I waited until Jan 2021 to use it but got declined, so my friend reckoned I should use it in-store rather than online (regardless, it is a prepaid card). I did not use it until 25/05/2021 as I wanted to save it to buy a gift.
Then I realised it could not use it in stores either.
I later found out there was no money on the card because there was a transaction of $249 paying online from Catch.com.au in DEC 2020. I've never shopped from this website before. Plus, I did not scrat...ch to reveal the pin until JAN 2021. I went online and researched, and I was not the only victim of the fraud. I contacted the support team, and they asked me to contact another department and fill out the form.... really..... Do you want to pay $250 for this?....
One Card, Countless Possibilities! Use wherever MASTERCARD is ACCEPTED... INSULTING ADVERTISING
I have had ZERO possibilities of using a $500 gift card that was gifted for my daughters birthday party. I have tried using it at my choice of Merchant - where Mastercard is accepted - and keep getting declined. Australia Post, Mastercard and Heritage Bank Ltd have all passed the buck around, Mastercard even said see Aust Post and at the time it was Aust Post making the inquiry while I was there! This gift card has brought nothing but tears, frustration and hours of Call center scripted conversations. My parents have tried everything in thei...r power to ask for the funds to be returned using all proof of purchase, as the card did not deliver the service it promotes. But the final say from Mastercard is they will have to spend it where gift cards are accepted to redeem the value of $500 on the card.!! HOW CAN YOU NOT FEEL AGGRESSIVE?
After declines for almost every online purchase, Optus bill payment worked! Theory: Covid got to Auspost Prepaid!
Felt like I was reading the same issue as people had more than a month ago. Had the prepaid card since early 2020. Wont bother topping up that for sure.
Won’t let me buy anything on Amazon
I keep trying to buy books and Audible books on Amazon and you guys are declining my purchase
I want to buy this week
Can you please fix it , it’s from your end and not Amazon.com
Can’t buy anything with it. It’s almost a scam.
It seems that it is declined everywhere I try. And we try to phone and all that happens is the call from their end hangs up. Would love to follow up with someone from the Australian post to get answers so I can use the money that is on my gift cards.
Not Totally Unusable
I bought this card to pay for overseas order, however it didn’t go through because its not my personal account, I tried linking to Paypal, again it didn’t go through, I tried registering online, didn’t go through, i called the customer service number however I didn’t get the solution i need and was asked to use the app instead (which the CS didn’t mention the app’s name). So out of frustration i used it to pay at Coles instore, it worked after several swipes, i used at ebay, typed card number, it worked no need to link to Paypal or it will be ...rejected. I figured those companies that require a personal account or company or persons account will reject the “gift card” account maybe because it might have something to do with money laundering law im not sure though. The amount to purchase the card is a bit unreasonable with all disappointments included. Other than that, will I purchase this card again? Maybe yes to PURCHASE online.
card doesn't work with steam
I have recently tried purchasing something on steam and it says the funds are on hold. yet i can see the funds on the card when i go on to there auspost website, and don't bother calling their help line or what ever, all it does is tell you your balance and transaction history, just with audio rather then reading it on there website. I am not sure if it works anywhere else but all I know is i just wasted 20$ bucks on this card. useless DON'T BUY IT
Useless in 2021
Something that should be so simple is so complicated. Why even produce and sell a gift card that is this useless??? I cant use it anywhere and have wasted over 2hours trying to get it to work. Like how much of an effort did Australia post go through to make it this crap??? Id rather dirty my hands and clap then to get another one of these useless cards, absolutely pathetic, and its obviously designed to be this bad for a reason, no one is that braindead to make a gift card this stupid, its designed to rip us off. Crap Australia post and crap for not fixing the problem with this card, like yous must all be a bunch of crap at auspost for even coming up with this card. What a crap!
Please do your self a favour and don't buy this !
There is no way for me to give 0 stars, and this deserves 0. I was given a $250 gift card by wife for my birthday with receipts. I tried to use this David Jones online and was declined. I thought may be the DJ online portal wasn't correctly. I then tried to use at Tommy Hilfiger online and it was declined too. I was trying to buy clothes closer to $250 value. I checked the card online logging in and it says the card is active and have 250 balance. Called card services and that went to over seas call centre. Only thing that they can do is come b...ack to me with something in 24-48 hours. What's the point of a credit card if I cannot simply use it on a reputed web site? I am not talking about streaming services, or gambling or anything. Just clothes shopping. It's my money and I cannot seem to use it. Job well done Auspost !
A total scam
Can't use it with amazon or paypal or booktopia. Reading the reviews below the only place that seems to take it is coles and woolworths, so why not buy a coles gift card instead. Totally useless online. So that is false advertising. The responses from Australia Post below are pathetic, absolutely no attempt to solve the problem. Thanks for ruining my birthday presents.
Card dont work with paypal check out
Have bought these Australia Post pre paid gift master credit cards as gifts . And they always don't work with PayPal check out no matter if you register the card try to link it to a PayPal account or check out as a guest at PayPal very annoying when they advertise can be used anywhere credit cards are accepted
Questions & Answers
Anyone know a single online website this card can be used??
If you're having trouble using the card, I recommend calling Card Services on 1800 549 718 so that they can check to make sure it's working correctly.
I got a lots of gift card from Australian post (aka MasterCard) like 3cards of them and get stuck with the reminding balance like $2.4, $5.8 and $3.15 is that possible to merge the balance into one balance, so I could use to purchase something else?
I'm afraid that you can't merge the card balances or transfer the funds out to another bank account cause that's not how the cards work, but you could try some in store purchases by splitting the total over the 3 cards.
Can i use a gift card to buy coins from post office ? And what gift cards do aust post accept.
Was this collectable coins you were thinking of? They can be purchased with Credit Cards, so paying with one of these gift cards should be fine too.
