Was just in my local WW and much to my disappointment they look like they're no longer stocking $100 o1 visa, that and the activation fee for tpgc $100 EFTPOS has gone up to $6.95!!!!

This happened quite some time ago.

A small amount of old stock may have been present, but the change to the $6.95 fee for theperfectgiftcards happened at least 3 months ago and has been reported by a number of members on this site.

Dang, I must have been shopping at a store with old stock all this time!

Local Coles didn't have any and said they'd ordered some more.

Silly me was at the local Leagues club Friday night and they have $50, $100 and $200 Visa Only One cards. Looks like the activation fee on the $200 version is $7.05 or $7.95? It was a little dark.

It is $7.95. It is a shame Woolies do not sell these because their net cost when purchased with a 5% discounted WISH GC is $197.55. I would probably bin my M'card if I could buy these in Woolworths.

In what denomination? I'm yet to see them at mine. Will probably buy some on the Platinum Edge if I see some.
wasn't really paying attention because I don't really use Uber but I thought it would be handy for others. I am in Melbourne.

The Uber GCs come in $25 and $50 denominations.

Can they be used with merchants other than Uber then?
The uber gift cards? No, those are voucher numbers that get activated when you purchase them, so can only be used with Uber.

Made some WOW eGC purchases on Sunday and Tuesday. Usually get them within 2 hours even on weekends and public holidays. I’ve needed to call to chase them twice this week.

Was told they’re making some systems changes which might have something. To do with some fraudulent activity. This is pretty much the last option for paying our preferred federal biller outside of RewardPay which is a little expensive for my liking. Hope this method isn’t broken.

Anyone else experiencing issues or delays?

I had one take ~3 days last weekend. Due to problems reported in this thread I was being patient.

However I then received an unsolicited call from someone in the egift Card team who said my order had been randomly selected for additional security check.

He confirmed the value of GC I’d ordered and asked about the Amex used for purchase. He was happy and said he would release the order.

EGC arrived within 15 mins.

Waiting for my order which was placed just under 48 hours ago. No call from anyone yet.

If you read the messages over the past month or so you'll see this is the pattern that has emerged.
