To get the most out of your card:

  • Take your card with you everywhere you go.
  • Search the online directory for the latest discounts.
  • Look for the "SuperGold Cards Welcome" stickers displayed by participating businesses.
  • Look for the SuperGold Card logo on advertising from participating businesses.
  • Show your card to receive your discount/concession.
  • Shop around and compare prices. The SuperGold Card does not guarantee you the best price.

General discount conditions

  • Discounts apply to SuperGold Card holders only. Unless otherwise stated they do not apply to family members or friends.
  • Unless otherwise stated, the discount/offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. Make sure you ask the business offering the discount whether there are any conditions before making a purchase.
  • Always ask what the normal quoted price is before asking for the SuperGold Card discount or presenting your card. This will help ensure you receive your full discount.
  • Present your SuperGold Card at the time of booking or prior to making your purchase. Some businesses may find it difficult to process a discount once a transaction has been completed.

Conditions for using your card

Your SuperGold Card is a personal card. This means you:

  • must present this card to obtain any of its permitted discounts and concessions
  • cannot give your card away, lend, assign, or pledge it
  • cannot use your card if we have asked you to send it back and/or have sent you a new card.

When using your card to access free off-peak public transport you may be asked for another form of ID.

Note: there is a fine of up to $1,000 for anyone who is found to be illegally using their card.
