It was once possible to purchase Woolworths WISH gift cards at a 5% discount through Cashrewards, as well as Entertainment Book, various clubs, insurance and utility providers. It’s free to join Cashrewards, so this had been a popular way to get a 5% discount on gift vouchers that could be redeemed at Woolworths Group retailers including Woolworths, Big W and Dan Murphy’s.
Sadly, Woolworths stopped providing discounted WISH gift cards via Cashrewards and many other organisations in November 2020.
With Cashrewards you can still get discounts or cashback when buying many other gift cards including from Harvery Norman, Myer, Hoyts and Uber. You can also still save money when shopping with lots of online retailers. But you’ll need to look a little further afield to find discounted Woolworths gift cards in 2022…
NSW Seniors cardholders can still get 5% off WISH gift cards
WISH cards are not store-specific, making them the most useful of the Woolworths Group gift cards. They can be redeemed at a variety of Woolworths Group stores including Woolworths, Big W, Caltex, BWS, Cellarmasters and Dan Murphy’s.
Although WISH gift cards are no longer available to most people at a full 5% discount, there is an exception.
NSW residents with a Seniors Card can still get a full 5% discount off WISH gift cards bought via the NSW Seniors online portal. To be eligible for a NSW Seniors Card you would need to live in NSW, be aged 60 or over, and do less than 20 hours per week of paid work.
Even if you don’t qualify for a NSW Seniors Card, you may still be able to get 3% off WISH gift cards if you are a member of your state’s automobile club or association (e.g. if you’re an NRMA or RACV customer), SDA NSW, through Entertainment Book, or as an Alinta Energy customer.
You can still get 4-5% off store-specific Woolworths Group gift cards
While the discount on WISH gift cards has generally dropped to 3%, you could still get a 4% or 5% discount on gift cards for specific Woolworths Group retailers through your insurance or electricity provider.
Most state-based automobile associations, for example, give the following eGift card discounts to their members:
- Big W – 5% off
- Dan Murphy’s – 5% off
- BWS – 5% off
- Woolworths – 4% off
- Caltex Woolworths petrol – 3% off
As you can see, it’s still possible to get a higher 5% discount at Big W, Dan Murphy’s and BWS, or 4% off Woolworths gift cards. The obvious trade-off is that these store-specific cards can only be used at one specific retailer.
You can find more information about accessing these discounts on the website of your state’s car association:
While the Woolworths gift card discounts available are now somewhat reduced and less accessible in 2022, there are still options to save significant money on your grocery shopping. A 4-5% discount may not seem like much, but it adds up over the thousands of dollars most households spend on groceries every year!
