    Thanks queenshrew :)

    Link has been fixed and I added new info to the OP as the website says first 100,000 instead of the catalogue 65,000. They must be feeling more generous :)

    There not feeling overly generous tho there is a limited of 1 claim per household, there cheapest cereal is corn flakes @ $3.39 for 500grams in Melbourne.
  • melissanj
    they are a bit cheeky...they increased the price of the the cocoa puffs...im pretty sure they were about $3.49 and now they are $4.49. Still not an issue as you can get it for free!

    Our cheapest is $2.99 for the Rice Puffs in Qld. I think I could manage a second claim at someone elses place. :rolleyes:

    Thanks. I picked up a packet of corn flakes yesterday to use them for cooking.

    Last time with the free soup/petrol offer it was a Coles voucher so I assume the same here.

    Got my gift card today. Instead of $5 it's preloaded with $50!!! Spent mine already!!
  • kickling
    wow! serious! i hope mine is the same!
  • bt34
    Yeah I was really surprised! The graphics at the front of the card says: Cereal $5 Gift Card. But the back of the card where the card number and Access Pin is, it says Value: $50. Went to giftcards.com.au to double check, and yep it showed $50 balance.

    Hello, We hope you have received your Coles Cereal $5 Gift Card. If not it is on its way! Unfortunately due to a card manufacturing error, we have found a small number of gift cards that are not functioning at the checkout. If you turn your card over and it has a $5 value stamped on the back, you can use your card from Thursday December 3rd. If your card has another dollar value, unfortunately it will not process at the checkout. If you do have a faulty card please contact Rima from our customer care team on rima.rustom@coles.com.au (quoting the 17 digit number on the back of the card) and we will send you a $5 replacement card. We are sorry to those impacted, please accept our apologies. Yours sincerely, The Coles Cereal Team

    They may have cancelled them once they discovered the error. Got mine today, the $5 as expected, but that's good enough for me :-)

    I'd suggest asking now. It seems everyone got it around the same time, and I think the e-mail even implied it should be there by then ( although I got my card the day or two after). It appears to me they were all sent out very close together.
  • hellwolf
    I got my three and my wife got her three last week I think, or maybe the week before.

    Well I've sent 3 emails to 3 different addresses at coles, including the feedback forum (and ticked I would like a reply button), but haven't heard anything back and now doubt they will even bother to respond. Just another gripe against coles from me, as I've always been unhappy with their service to start with.
  • hatoo
    Still haven't received my 2x $5 gift cards. Does anyone know what's a good email address to contact regarding not receiving the cards? I haven't gotten any responses from the online website through the coles page or the email address that was in the email regarding if you got the wrong value on your card.

What do you think?
