Redemption of Points

Once your Nerd Perks Club Card accumulates 500 points a Jaycoins gift card valued at $25.00# will be posted to the registered mailing address^ of your Nerd Perks Club Card. At the time the Jaycoins Gift Card is issued, the customer’s points balance will be reduced by 500 points for each $25.00# Jaycoins gift card.

The Jaycoins gift cards can then be used to purchase goods at any Jaycar Electronics company owned store within the country on the registered mailing address only; either Australia or New Zealand or through the Techstore in Australia on 1800 022 888 or New Zealand on 0800 452 922. The Jaycoins gift card cannot be redeemed for cash.

If the customer processes a refund AFTER having a Jaycoins gift card issued the balance on their Nerd Perks Club Card will be negative.

It is the customer’s responsibility to maintain an up to date delivery address via their unique account on the Jaycar Electronics websites or by contacting Jaycar Electronics on: Australia 1800 022 888 or New Zealand 0800 452 922. Jaycar Electronics will not be held responsible for any correspondence or cards that are sent to an incorrect address.

 

Using My Jaycoins Gift Card

·         All Jaycoins gift cards are valid for use for 6 months from the date they are issued. After this period any unused Jaycoins gift cards will expire and not be able to be used for purchase of goods.

·         You don’t have to spend the total amount on the Jaycoins gift card in one transaction. Any amount left on the Jaycoins gift card after a single transaction maybe used to purchase subsequent goods until the total amount is spent or the Jaycoins gift card expires i.e. 6 months from date of issue.

·         What happens if I want to make a purchase for an amount that exceeds the value/balance on my Jaycoins gift card? If the purchase is greater than the value of the gift card, the entire balance of the gift card will be subtracted and the customer will be asked to provide another form of payment (cash, EFTPOS, credit card etc.) to make up the difference.

·         Returning items for refund that were purchased on a Jaycoins gift card will have the amount of the refund. Please talk to staff in any Jaycar Electronics company owned store or through our Techstore in Australia on 1800 022 888 or New Zealand on 0800 452 922.

·         The balance on your Jaycoins gift card can be checked in any Jaycar Electronics company owned store or through our Techstore in Australia on 1800 022 888 or New Zealand on 0800 452 922.
