    If the transaction amount exceeds the card’s balance, you will need to pay for the remaining amount on a different card or cash.

    No, you can choose how and where you want to spend your card balance. Any remaining balance after your transaction will stay on your card as long as it’s valid for. This way you can enjoy your gift card more than once!

    Your card is valid for thirty-six months (36 months) from the date of purchase. If the date is not written on the back of the card check your card balance and expiry date on our website.

    We do not charge any fees for using the card. However, some merchants 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.

    No, the gift card is fee-free for restaurants, so every dollar spent goes directly back into the industry.

    Unfortunately, gift cards are not redeemable for cash.

    Contact us here and we’ll have a member of our team get in touch with you.

    Sometimes a team member at a venue isn’t aware of the cards. We are sorry if you experience this. This card runs on eftpos so will work on their eftpos terminals, just let them know to try it and it will process like any other eftpos card. Gift card is still subject to individual merchant acceptance.

    What if my TheFork Gift Card is not accepted for payment?

    Sorry to hear that. Check out the following reasons your card may not be working:

    • The balance you have nominated is not available. You can check your card balance here.
    • Your gift card has expired. Gift cards have a 36 month expiry, which can be calculated 36 months from the date of issue, and/when you check your balance.
    • The venue you have tried to use your gift card is outside the list of specificized venues

    Should your card not work but it has funds, isn’t expired and you’re not trying to use it at venues outside the list then please contact us here or call 1300 375 346.

Be it Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Employee Incentives and Rewards, Corporate Gifts or just a “thank you” or a #datenight surprise, TheFork Gift Cards are the best way to provide ultimate choice whilst still personalising your gift.

    Christmas – TheFork Gift Cards are the perfect Christmas gift for friends and family members and a great way to thank colleagues, employees, business partners or clients for a great year completed.

    Birthdays – TheFork Gift Cards are great when you want a gift that you know they’ll love. TheFork Gift Cards as a gift gives them something to look forward to once the candles are blown out and the cake is gone!

    Employee Gifts & Rewards and Corporate Gifts – With beautiful packaging and great utility, some of the best venues in Australia, TheFork Gift Cards are the best way to show your employees or clients you appreciate them whilst giving them choice.

    Thank you – The perfect way to say “thanks” for feeding the cat, lending me the car, helping paint the fence, looking after the kids or being a great teacher.

    Our gift cards are available for purchase from specific retail outlets. We cannot guarantee the validity of any gift card you purchase from any other outlet - including any auction website or discount website who is not listed as one of our retail outlets. Any gift card not purchased from a certified seller may be fake or counterfeit or associated with fraudulent activity. We will not be liable to you or any other person for any loss arising from any purchase of our gift cards from an outlet who is not listed as a participating seller.

    We take security very seriously, and a major part of that is ensuring that orders are placed by the legitimate cardholder.

    If your order is declined during the checkout process, it means we were unable to verify your purchase, and it was declined out of caution.

    We recommend placing your order again completing all required details – such as phone number, email and billing address – that match the cardholder’s information. We will then re-assess your order.
