The Card cannot be used to make transactions that exceed the available balance. For such a transaction you need to pay the difference by another method if the merchant agrees.

Gift Cards are not reloadable or redeemable for cash and cannot be redeemed for gaming purposes.

Any balance which is not redeemed within the validity period may not be redeemed after the expiry date.

Lost, damaged or stolen Gift Cards will not be replaced or refunded.

Goods that are purchased solely or in part with a Gift Card may be exchanged or returned subject to the exchange and returns policy of each participating outlet. Any refunds on Card transactions are subject to the policy of the specific merchant. If the Card expires or is revoked before you have spent any funds resulting from a refund (whether or not the original transaction being refunded was made using the Card) then you will have no access to those funds.

The bearer is liable for all transactions on their Gift Card, except to the extent to which there has been fraud or negligence by The Star or its employees.

If the present day’s date is selected for a Gift Card to be sent, delivery will take place as soon as the transaction is completed and approved.

In the event of suspected fraud or improper use of a Gift Card, The Star reserves the right to suspend (pending investigation) or cancel any Gift Card.

The Star reserves the right to cancel the Gift Card scheme for any reason at any time. In these circumstances, any cards issued prior to the cancellation or revocation will be valid until their expiry date has elapsed, or may be refunded at the sole and absolute discretion of The Star.

We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time. These Terms of Use are to be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of New South Wales Australia. For further information about The Star Gift Cards, please see the website: www.star.com.au.

MasterCard Prepaid Gift Card Conditions of Use

When we refer to the Pays, we are referring to Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay and further, when we refer to a Device, we are referring to a mobile phone or wearable device that allows you to store a Card to the Device. Pays availability is subject to your respective Card program sponsor and device capability. Although the Card is Pays enabled, availability of the Pays is contingent upon the card program you have signed-up for. In addition, Cardholders associated with Pays enabled programs must ensure their device is Pays capable. This means your device must have the ability to store the Card and actuate a purchase.

MasterCard is not liable in circumstances where you have other cards stored on your Device for payment and you inadvertently use the Card when using your Device as a payment method. You must ensure that you select the correct card prior to using your Device as a payment method.

MasterCard is not liable for transactions on your Card if your Device security measures are compromised, where you allow others access to, or the means to access your Device or any other circumstances in which you allow others to circumvent the security measures of your Device.
