    3. Currently Gift Cards cannot be used as payment tender online at www.priceline.com.au

  7. How to load value onto your Gift Card
  8. 4.1 In store Gift Card purchases

    Present the Gift Card to our point of sale operator. Check that the Gift Card has not been removed from the cardboard carrier and that the scratch panel on the back of the Gift Card has not been tampered with or removed. If it has been tampered with or removed, give the Gift Card to our point of sale operator to be destroyed and select a new one.

    Nominate the value you wish to be loaded on the Gift Card. A minimum of $10.00 and a maximum of $200.00 can be loaded on each Gift Card in-store.

    4.2 Online Gift Card purchases

    Gift Cards that are purchased from the Priceline Gift Card website and/or the Priceline Corporate Gift Card Website are pre-loaded and activated in accordance with our Priceline Gift Card Website Terms and Conditions and the Priceline Privacy Policy. Purchase of Priceline Gift Cards online constitutes acceptance of the terms and conditions.

    Pay for your Gift Card value with the tender of your choice (other than a Gift Card). The transaction will be completed when the Gift Card is activated and loaded with value.

    Priceline Gift Cards purchased on the Priceline Corporate Gift Card Website require activation by the purchaser before the gift card may be used in-store.

    Gift cards are not reloadable. No change will be given.

  9. Using your Gift Card
  10. 5.1 Making a purchase with your Gift Card

    Present your Gift Card at the point of sale at a participating Priceline store with the merchandise that you wish to purchase using that Gift Card. Our point of sale operator will scan your Gift Card and then enter the PIN into the pin pad. The transaction will be completed when the balance has reduced on your Gift Card.

    No change will be given for any Remaining Gift Card Value. The Remaining Gift Card Value may be used in whole or part against future purchases until the Gift Card expires.

    You agree that we can reduce the Remaining Gift Card Value by the value of all purchases of goods and services that are authorised by you. Transactions are authorised by you by:

    1. scanning your Gift Card and entering your PIN, or allowing an operator or other person to do so, at the point of sale; or
    2. giving us details of the Gift Card and authorising the transaction in some other way approved by us.

    When you authorise a transaction:

    1. you are confirming that the transaction correctly represents the purchase price of the goods or services obtained; and
    2. you are agreeing to pay the amount of that transaction by the reduction of the Remaining Gift Card Value.

    5.2 Purchases exceeding the Remaining Gift Card Value

    Your Gift Card may only be used to make purchases up to the initial Gift Card value or the Remaining Gift Card Value. If you wish to make a purchase for an amount that exceeds the Gift Card value or the Remaining Gift Card Value, you must pay the excess using another payment method.

    5.3 Exchanging items purchased with a Gift Card

    Goods that are purchased solely, or in part with a Gift Card may be exchanged or returned subject to Priceline’s exchange and returns policy. Priceline has the discretion to refund the payment provided on to your original gift card, or may issue you with a new gift card as part of the refund.

    Exchanges or refunds for change of mind cannot be offered for:

    • Gift cards and vouchers;
    • Prescription medicines and pharmacist-only medicines (available from Priceline Pharmacies only); or
    • Other products advertised as being non-refundable for change of mind.

    5.4 No cash advances

    Gift Cards are not legal tender, account cards, credit or debit cards or securities. You cannot obtain any cash advance with your Gift Card, redeem your Gift Card for cash or receive any portion of the Remaining Gift Card Value in cash.

    5.5 Checking your Gift Card balance, expiry date and transaction history

    You can check your Gift Card balance and expiry date at any time in-store at check-out of participating stores, or by calling 1300 554 268 or visiting www.priceline.com.au/giftcards. For balance enquiries by phone or online, you will be required to enter both the Gift Card number (the 18 digit number on the back of the Gift Card) and PIN on your Gift Card prior to getting access to the Gift Card information.

    5.6 Gift Card Exchanges

    You cannot exchange your Gift Card for a different denomination, design or type of Gift Card or for another tender, cash or discount.

  11. Expiry, cancellation and re-issue of Gift Cards
  12. 6.1 Expiry of Gift Cards

    Your Gift Card will be valid for use for 12 months from the date of issue (or as otherwise extended by us) after such time it will be invalid. You should use all of the Remaining Gift Card Value before the expiry date. It is up to the cardholder to use the full value within the validity period. Any unused balance will not be refunded or credited when the Gift Card expires. Unused balances will remain the property of Priceline.

    6.2 Cancellation and voiding of Gift Cards

    1. Gift Cards cannot be cancelled once they are issued except if they are cancelled by Priceline at Priceline’s discretion, if their value is used or if they expire.

    6. We reserve the right to correct the balance of your Gift Card if we believe that a clerical or accounting error has occurred.

    6.3 Re-issue of faulty or damaged Gift Cards

    A re-issue of faulty or damaged Gift Cards is not available unless the fault or damage to the Gift Card is proven to be a result of the production process or otherwise due to the fault of us or our agents or contractors.

  13. Lost or stolen Gift Cards
