And thats what the gift card issuers count on, I wonder how many gift cards are bought, lost and never found again in time to use.

Seems that some states are 2000 bonus points
Some are 1000

If its 2000 its a great bargain
If its 1000 its crap

It's been a while since I bought these - has the Wish eGC option been completely removed? I recall the early stages of some terminals not allowing GC purchases with another GC but wanted to know if it's completely off the table now...

So are people buying the physical Wish GCs at 5% off?
$6.95 for 435 QFF is 1.6c per point which is not great value
(It is 1000 WW rewards points in Vic, not 2000 in NSW)

I would also be interested to know if you can buy another gift card with a PHYSICAL Wow GC

Last time I tried this it didn't work. This was at a manned checkout at WOW Crows Nest in Sydney around a year ago.

I just bought a few Perfect Gift Cards in ACT. Earned 2140 points per card. Don’t know where the extra 140 points came from.
it seems that for all the woolworths promotions instead of crediting you1000 + 7 pts correctly, either through laziness or just difference,

they simply double your points and add a zero, which works out better for the customer

Check your maths. You get 2000 Woolworths points for each card in NSW. 2000 Woolworths points equals 870 qff points. And, of course, you don't need to take the QFF points. You can take the Woolworths points instead.

I definitely wouldn't buy if it was only 1000 points and I don't believe I ever discussed this as an option if 1000 points.
