And again yesterday and today, my partner and were able to pay for 5 $250 CMCGC’s with multiple Coles eGift Cards. Went through staffed checkouts - yesterday operator initially said can’t pay for gift cards with gift cards and when i advised we had recently done it in that store, he said he’d try and it worked. Partner did it gain today in a different store. Definitely does not work at self serve checkouts - I’ve got stuck before.Thanks for your reply Dr Ralph.
Last time, we were able to use multiple eGift Cards (Suncorp doesn’t offer them in high denomination) to pay for 5 MC gift cards together, at a staffed checkout. At the self serve checkout, I think what you noted is applicable. In fact, even a SIM card counts as a gift card and means you can’t pay with a gift card at self serve checkouts.
I’ve been doing somewhat similar to you, with the addition of a numbers spreadsheet in my phone which is shared with my partner. I just wondered whether there was a better way, as it’s quite time consuming to keep the balance up to date and to use all the small left over amounts.
