JB Hi-Fi gift cards and the Australian Consumer Law

Need to know

  • Gift cards are just like cash and considered a prepayment – a retailer shouldn’t have the right to decide when you’re allowed to use them
  • Nothing in the Australian Consumer Law gives retailers the option of rejecting a gift card for purchases
  • After a backlash fueled by customer complaints and media reports, JB Hi-Fi has reworked its ill-conceived policy 

(This story was updated on 9 October to reflect JB Hi-Fi’s reversal on its gift card policy.) 

In JB Hi-Fi’s 2020 annual report, the company says “gift cards and store credits are considered a prepayment for goods and services to be delivered in the future”.

Pandemic Accelerates Consumer Demand For Personalized Free Sample Boxes

Consumers are eager to discover new brands, and have never been more open to trying free samples from the safety of their own homes. These were among the recent findings from a consumer shopping behavior survey conducted by startup Sampler.
