Let’s Get Shopping — Here’s How to Use David Jones Gift Cards Online

David Jones offers two gift card types. The Classic Gift Card is sold in stores, while the eGift is a gift card purchased online — but they both work in the same way.

Once you’re ready to start shopping, you’re in for a treat. The David Jones website offers an array of luxury items produced by many amazing Australian retailers. Think designer clothes, premium homewares and 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. 

David Jones caters to the most sophisticated Australian shoppers, so browse their website and you’ll be sure to find something you love.

After you’ve made your decision, add your purchases to your bag and then head to the checkout. You can sign up to become a David Jones member or check out as a guest, and then enter your shipping details. 

In the payment section, you’ll enter the gift card number to deduct the balance of the card from your order. Now you’re all set!

Alternatively, you can pay with a combination of both your gift card and a credit or debit card. Note that standard shipping is free for purchases over $50.00 and is $10.00 for purchases less than that.

Do David Jones Gift Cards Need to Be Activated?

If you’re buying The Classic Gift Card from a David Jones store, the sales counter staff will load the set amount onto the card to activate it. 

If you buy your David Jones gift card online, the eGift card will be activated as soon as it’s sent to your email or to your gift recipient. So, once you’ve purchased or received the gift card, it’s ready to go. 

Where Can I Buy a David Jones Gift Card?

You can buy your gift card from any David Jones department store. Alternatively, you can purchase your gift card online from the comfort of your own home. You can purchase them here and then start shopping right away! 

How Do I Check My David Jones Gift Card Balance?

If you only want to use part of your gift card amount and save the rest for later, then it’s important to keep an eye on your balance. There’s a few easy ways to check this.

After an in-store purchase, your current gift card balance will be shown at the bottom of your receipt. David Jones sales counter staff can also scan your card and check your balance. Shopping online? For online purchases, the balance will be shown on your order confirmation screen after a purchase. To check your balance in between purchases, you can pop onto the David Jones website, enter your gift card number and PIN, and your balance will be displayed.

Speaking of checking your balance, be sure to use it before it’s gone! Both the Classic and eGift cards expire 36 months from the date of purchase. But with the fun and excitement of shopping at Australia’s leading premium department store, you’ll be sure to use up your balance long before it has a chance to expire.

Where Can You Use David Jones Gift Cards?

With your new gift card, you can visit any of David Jones’ 47 stores across Australia — a day out of fashion, fun, and friends sounds like a great way to spend the afternoon. You can also use your gift card in the Food Hall for a lunch break. 

For online shoppers, purchases will be delivered in just a few days complete with beautiful David Jones packaging.
