    I think we should start a thread discussing which supermarket stock gift cards for other non-supermarket stores.

    I do not want to discuss why this is the case, just stores, and card type and availability, as I don't want this to get Newk'd. ;)

    I know Coles always have stock of these cards
    Coles Group and Myer (excl Bunnings)
    Bunnings (the green one)
    Coles only (not useful)
    Coles Express only (useful, but I'd rather buy the Coles Group and Myer one.
    ABC Shop

    Sometimes they have others, and that's what I'd like to see discussed in this thread.

    Woolworths seems to carry a much larger variety. I've seen
    David Jones
    Peter Alexander
    Wish (of course) for the WOW Group
    Woolworths Petrol/Caltex

    Please expand on my list if you can.

    First question. Does anyone know if any supermarkets sell Rebel Sport gift cards?

    I've also seen iTunes, Facebook, Best Restaurants, Event Cinemas, Accor Hotels to name a few that come to mind.

    the post office stocks what seems to be an increasing number. I'll get to it and make a list when next I am in one which is quite a bit lately (before it gets "newked"*) ;)

    Rebel sport voucher was part of our supermarket shop just a couple of days ago as our son needed new soccer boots!
    It was woolworths, I purchase lots of gift cards with my supermarket shop but obviously won't mention why!

    If you don't want it to get Newk'ed* then why post about it???

    Just walk into Coles and Woolies and have a look.

    lol

    *Sorry Newk, but that is a hilarious phrase.

    Not all stores seem to carry all gift cards. Eg I haven't found a rebel sport gift card in a Woolworths yet. That was why I started the thread.

    Maybe we need to get specific as to the actual store?

    I know the answer: because there are some people on AFF that won't be able to work it out unless spoon fed. So this a discussion thread and not a spoon-feeding thread

    Am I right DeKa?

    Edit to change brain malfunction "fed" instead of "thread". Although there is certain poetry to "spoon thread"

    I live with that and worse ;)

    BTW for those still interested the other stuff (nudge nudge) still seems to be working just tickedy. BUT I'm sure it won't be for long

    Absolutely. My goal for this thread is to know if we want a particular gift card (eg Rebel Sport) I go to Woolworths x, y or z (but not Northbridge).

    I forgot Coles did the gift cards that includes Myer. Thanks everyone! I was rather disappointed at Big Ws Easter selection but still handed over my WISH gift card. Too soon perhaps now Myer is on the cards...

    (pun intended)

    Thanks for the spread sheet.

    I'm surprised you can get bunnings gift cards at coles. I went to manu coles but could not find it :) I'm based in SYD.
