How does the Good Food Gift Card work?

The gift card can go straight through a restaurant’s Eftpos terminal – venue staff simply enter the card value into the terminal, and swipe or tap the gift card, and the money is taken off the bill. You don’t need to spend the full balance of the card in one go, any remaining balance is yours to use as long as it’s valid.


The white-and-gold card is fee-free, so every dollar spent on the card goes to the restaurant. Some restaurants may charge you for using the card and such fees may be deducted from the balance of your card at the time of the transaction.

You can register your card here, meaning if you lose it, and it still has credit on it, you can get a replacement card. You can check your card’s balance here.


How long is the card valid?

Three years, which is plenty of time to consider which of the 800 restaurants across Australia to visit next.


Where can I buy the gift card?

Pick up a card at most major retailers, including Coles, Woolworths, Big W and Target, as well as The Store, which sells other Good Food merch including caps and Good Food Guides. The card is also available digitally, meaning you can grab one as a last-minute present for a food-lover in your life.
