Do not buy
These cards do not work and are a nightmare to replace. Takes multiple phone calls and cards never turn up. Absolute waste of time and all is a big scam hoping people don’t spend the time chasing it up.

The cards do not work. My daughter was given one with $50 for Christmas. It does not work anywhere. There are no email addresses to contact the company and the ONLY way to speak to someone over the phone is to report the card lost or stolen. Once you finally get to speak to someone after having to press the button to report lost or stolen they then say they can't unblock the card without the reciept number and there's nothing they can do. After registering the card most people, as I did, would assume it's fine to use and don't keep the reciept. So my daughter didn't get her gift and the person that bought the card should have just chucked their money on the ground. I can only imagine the money the company is making from unspent cards.

Worst Gift card. DON'T BUY
I got so much hassle using this card. I can't even check my balance. Website is the worst I have ever seen. You have to create an account just to check account balance. You frequently get access denied from website. DON'T BUY

No Pin Number
Same as other reviewers, I find this giftcard is very hard to use, when purchasing in store because the card doesn't have pin number, after select pay by card in store, press return to skip inputting pin number then the cashier will ask you to sign the docket. when purchasing online I can't partially pay using this card and other credit card

The product packaging for Visa Only 1 Cards is misleading. Not only can you not use the card for in-store purchases (only phone and online); you can only use the card for an amount the same or less than what's on the card - no partial payments if you want to buy something that costs more and have multiple cards. Mine also didn't activate automatically, so now I have a company collecting data I don't want them to have as I was forced to register online. Give cash. It saves the hassle and the time wasting.

Worst Gift Card ever!!
Received cards as gift but unable to use as 'Transaction not valid' at store checkout (Feb 2021). Tried to sort out online and on the phone but message after entering card numbers, expiry date and security code number - 'number does not match records'. Finally managed to speak to someone on the 1300 391 709 number and was told that my cards would be replaced as they were defective but it would take 3 weeks to receive the replacement cards. I would not recommend this gift card and judging by the product reviews, I am at a loss as to why this card is still available. Will be following up with Woolworths and Visa.

Our Experience in bullet point form
*Gift card given to me for friends photographic job
*forgot about it for 6 months
*tried to use at bunnings.
*declined twice, did the walk of shame and produced another card

Do not buy these gift cards
Similar experience to John who wrote a review on this card who I would like to thank for the detailed explanation as was ready to give up, as we had the exact same experience. I've just called the number and selected lost/stolen and spoken to an operator who will send a replacement card. Fingers crossed it arrives.

My Replacement Card Worked!
I wanted to share my experience of receiving replacement card, hoping it helps others. I found this link after failing to get through to phone support and smelling a scam.

How is this even allowed?
I was given a $100 gift card as a present, and was looking forward to putting it towards weekly groceries/ shopping etc. At coles (ironically!) the card kept declining, very embarrassing, and the workers didn't know what the issue was. I tried contacting customer service who was absolutely no help at all, and just said 'ask to use a different machine'. It never works, and keeps declining, honestly just seems like money has gone down the drain!
It also advertises itself as an 'easy card' 'no pin required', which is absolute bull. Each time you...swipe the card, it requests 'cheque, savings, or credit', it's always a fun little guessing game and you know it will decline each time. Don't bother wasting time / money on this! Give them cash or any other gift card, it's honestly embarrassing that they're getting away with it.

Waste of time & money
As a Gift Card - don't waste your time. There are so many better gift cards out there.
I have an Only 1 Visa Gift Card and I am finding it very hard to use anywhere !
I cannot use this card in store as I was prompted for a PIN - there is no PIN.
I then tried to use the card online but find I could not make a part-payment using it.
So, basically, it looks like I am stuck with an expensive piece of plastic.
I do not recommend this product - in fact, I fact, I would tell you to avoid at all costs!

Awful product and service - do not buy these!
These cards are awful. We periodically receive them as gifts from family, it is impossible to get a balance check either online or via the phone number listed and then I have had cards where I know there is funds available declined. Do not purchase these, I do not know how this company can get away with these products under Australian consumer law and have them for purchase in all of the big chains as a viable gift card option.

So hard to get the balance.
Tried to create account to check balance but it's not a simple sign up. It's rubbish.
I'll just take my chance with going to the shop & hoping I have enough on them

Do not gift this or purchase for yourself
I was gifted three cards valued at $500 over 12 months ago. Had already registered. Could not check balance on the website address posted at the back of the card - tried alternate sites mentioned on this forum with the same issue. Called the 1800 number printed at the back of the card as well as on the website with no luck. Finally found the number registered to the issuer of the card https://www2.indue.com.au/contact-us/ 1300 391 709 and managed to speak to a human who was able to give me the balances. Terrible experience, Provided feedback a...nd was told that he was only there to give the information and that you cant check the balance online because the cards are 'recycleable!' and my card number would eventually be used again. Did not make any sense. If I could rate these cards below 1 i would, Do not purchase
Angry weeb noises
This is absolute bull. Wanted to watch episode forty of Re:Zero, but they wouldn't let me use my card for recurring payments. Now very angry and not UwU, but TwT. To be honest tho, it's fair, since it'd cause a lot of trouble for them, but still unhappy.
So I called the number on the website because the card didn’t seem to work and got hung up on, then I called again and got through to a person that sounded like a machine, they proceeded to check my card for activation and they came back and told me that for some reason it was locked????
I received this card as a gift why would it be automatically locked instead of activated?
The guy then told me he couldn’t activate it but got my address and contact details so they could send me a new card, then hung up on me whilst I was on hold. Worst company ever.

Worked at Woolies Online
I was gifted 5 cards at $100 each. I registered my card at https://www.only1giftcard.com.au/ which seemed to work for me. However I couldn't use it at the Coles check out. After reading the comments here, I have just been successful using it with Woolies online. Make sure you only spend up to the value of the card exactly though as it won't work if you're over and you can't seem to split the payment. Good luck everyone, this card is horrible!
