Can you use Prezzy Cards for online shopping?
You sure can! Prezzy Cards are as easy to use for online shopping as they act just like a debit or credit card.
When you get to the checkout of the online store, enter your Prezzy Card number, the expiry date and the three-digit number found on the back of the card.
Confirm your order and the purchase amount will be deducted from your balance.
How to use a Prezzy Card in store
Use the payment terminal to swipe your card like you would with a regular credit card. You will be asked to sign the receipt, as there is no PIN number to enter.
The purchase amount will be deducted from your Prezzy Card balance.
How to check your Prezzy Card balance
To check your balance, go to “Check Balance” on the Prezzy Card website. Enter the Alternate ID and CVV details from the card and hit “View Now”.
You can also check your balance by calling 0800 450 509. Using the automated phone service will cost you 50c each time, or if you speak to a real person it will cost $1.50.
If you want to make a purchase that costs more than your remaining balance, you can split the payment between your Prezzy Card and your debit or credit card.
How do I activate my Prezzy Card?
When you receive a Prezzy Card, you will need to unlock it to be able to use it. You will need the four-digit number that was selected by the person who bought it for you.
Where to buy Prezzy cards
If you want to give a Prezzy Card to a friend, family member, colleague or another special person in your life, you can purchase one directly from the Prezzy Card website. Just select the required value between $25 and $1,000 and provide an address for courier delivery.
Alternatively, you can pick one up at one of the following outlets:
- Warehouse Stationery
- Paper Plus
- Life Pharmacy
- The Warehouse
- Super Value
- Four Square
- New World
- Fresh Choice
- Z Energy
*Note that there is a $5.95 load fee that is added on top of the card value.
