  • to pay a store or credit account (e.g. a Coles Group Card or a Coles Group Source MasterCard account);
  • to purchase goods or services that a retailer is not permitted to supply to you (for example, a retailer cannot by law sell alcohol to you if you are under 18 years of age);
  • to make purchases from certain sub-lets or licensees operating within a retailer's premises. A current list of these sub-lets and licensees is available by visiting www.giftcards.com.au or calling 1300 304 990; and

Select goods in your participating store and take them to the point of sale operator with your eGift Card.

The transaction will be completed when the balance has reduced on your eGift Card. No change will be given, any remaining balance on your eGift Card can only be used in whole or part against future purchases.

You agree that we can reduce the Remaining Card Value by the value of all purchases of goods and services that are authorised by you. Transactions are authorised by you by:

(b) giving a participating retailer details of the eGift Card and authorising the transaction in some other way approved by that retailer.
