Do not ever buy one of these eGift cards on line. My daughter's purchased one from Freedom for Mother's Day. It has been a complete fiasco. Nobody at either the number at the bottom of the email page (Woolworths eGift cards) or Woolworths support knows ANYTHING on how it operates. I have just spent over 3 hours trying to sort it out to finally end up with a piece of paper that I had to print out and carry around for up to three years(expiry) to be able to use it and make sure to keep the email incase the printed page is queried by Freedom. Save yourself the time, energy and angst.

Terrible! Do not purchase unless you want to be embarrassed


Bought a friend one of these cards. They tried to use it and were told it didn't work = embarrassing. I called up woolies and was told it's a known issue, the cashier should have picked up it didn't activate. Their suggested solution was to ask for the card back from my friend and for me to go and try to activate again. How utterly embarrassing and such a poor customer service response for what is a known issue.

Sold dodgy gift card


Daughter brought gift card for Christmas for brother. Brother tried to use card told it was declined. Checked card at service desk at Bathurst store on 2/2/2109 and told card was used.
I said 'how can it be used?' Staff member reply was 'go on the website'. Staff member demonstrated no customer service. I showed them the receipt when the card was brought from the Bathurst store and again the reply was 'go to website'. Checked card on website result said card was expired.
I believe card was swapped for used card when given to daughter when purchasing it.
The card number in question is [removed], and was meant to have $50 on it.

5 days and 2 phone calls later - e-giftcard still hasnt turned up!


I ordered a giftcard for my granddaughter’s birthday. 5 days later (3 days after her birthday), I still havent received it. Still - no-one at Woolworths end seems to be able to fix the problem!

Declined at checkout


Given card as a gift. No purchase or expiry dates shown ? Card declined at checkout Woolworths. Contacted online chat and advised still valid !! Waiting on call back but advised we have to call them !! Poor customer service and no prompt resolution. Follow up call received next day saying card valid and advised to go back to Woolworths and try again !! Appears no direct link between card issuer's and Woolworths store.



Money stolen off Woolworths eCard


Frigging terrible people to deal with, been buying Woolworths eCard for years had money stolen off the card when we still have the card get no response about having a look at CCTV footage to see who stole it, will not replace the Money never give them my money again Buyer Beware they like to make things difficult when its there fault.
In hands of Police will be speaking to the Ombudsman, Choice.com, and the papers.



Wake up Woolies, Reading Cinemas & Bunnings, cudos for NON-EXPIRY GIFT CARDS


Have checked expiry date on a "WISH gift card" only to realise it expired 3 days ago !!!

For such a large company I find it difficult to accept they are not able to have an unlimited expiry date. If other companies are able to extend this service to customers, come on Woolies get with the program.

be careful with the expiry date


Cards should not expire after 1 year - this is a rip off and not acceptable. Fine if you have plenty of time to manage these cards, otherwise don't use.
