By purchasing, registering or using an eGift Card you agree to these terms and conditions (“terms and conditions”). These terms and conditions apply to you, the recipient or any user of the card. These terms and conditions contain disclaimers and other provisions that limit SNZ's liability to you.

Variation of these terms and conditions

We reserve the right to vary, suspend, modify or terminate these terms and conditions at any time without prior notice. Any changes to these terms and conditions will be posted on the website, and you will be bound by those amended terms and conditions. We recommend that you review the terms and conditions from time to time. If you do not agree with any of the terms and conditions as amended from time to time, you must cease using your eGift Card.

eGift Card purchase

You can purchase an eGift Card from the website, either for yourself or for another person you nominate in the purchase process.

Where you nominate another person to receive the eGift Card, you hereby confirm that the recipient consents to receiving that eGift Card from us at your nominated email address.

At the time of your purchase you must nominate a value between NZ$10 and NZ$1,000 to load on to the eGift Card ("eGift Card credit"). You are responsible for checking that the value loaded onto your eGift Card is correct at the time of purchase.

Your order for an eGift Card will be submitted by completing the required details and clicking the 'submit' button. The eGift card will then be sent to your nominated email address.

You are able to reload your eGift Card with additional credit in-store. The maximum credit you can have on your Subcard® account at any time is $1,000.

Additional credit will not be able to be loaded onto eGift Cards purchased prior to 18 September 2017. A new eGift Card will need to be loaded with credit instead after this date.

You cannot transfer credit available on one eGift Card to another eGift Card.
