  2. Non-residents (ie tourists) can apply for and use a limited functionality Onecard in accordance with these Terms as set out below.
  3. You must use your legal name on your Onecard registration and you can only have one Onecard per person.
  4. Except as otherwise provided for in these Terms, you must be an individual to hold and use a Onecard. For the avoidance of doubt, where you are purchasing goods from Countdown in trade, you may earn Rewards on those purchases. However, you are not eligible to earn any additional or bonus Rewards made available as part of any bonus Rewards promotion.
  5. You must keep your contact details up to date. If your details are not up to date, you could:

• miss out on rewards;

• miss out on a prize; or

• be unable to receive important information about your membership from us.

  1. You can manage your account and keep your details up to date on the Website, or by calling us on 0800 40 40 40.
  2. We reserve the right, at any time without notice, to withdraw or cancel your Onecard, and/or Rewards. Reasonable grounds include (without limitation): a. any use or attempted use by you of a Onecard or Rewards in a manner which is contrary to these Terms; or b. our reasonable suspicion that you have been dishonest in connection with the Programme including if it is suspected that your Rewards have been earned through suspicious or unlawful practices.
  3. If we withdraw or cancel your Onecard in the above circumstances, you will forfeit any Rewards you have accumulated (including any spend allocated to a Onecard in the event it is unregistered) and you will no longer be eligible to earn or to redeem any Rewards or Onecard e-vouchers.
  4. We reserve the right to terminate the Programme for any reason. Where we decide to terminate the Programme, we will endeavour to give you reasonable notice of termination and let you know how this will affect you.
  5. For special Onecard promotions, other terms and conditions (in addition to these Terms) may apply and we’ll tell you about those at the time.
  6. From time to time, Onecard may provide you with Boosts (exclusive personalised offers) based on your individual profile. These offers are only available on your registered Onecard.
  7. If your Onecard has been lost or stolen (and you have registered it) you can replace it by picking up an unregistered Onecard in-store (New Onecard) and register it on your Onecard account. Please note, if you lose an unregistered Onecard, or if it is stolen, we will be unable to give you the benefit of any spend recorded and allocated to that card.

Registering Your Onecard

  1. Onecard provides you with a choice of Rewards. In order to obtain the full benefits of your Onecard, including utilising Onecard Points and, where applicable, redeeming other Rewards, you must first register your New Onecard on the website or by calling us on 0800 40 40 40.
  2. It is your responsibility to register your Onecard in your own name and with a unique email address that is not shared with any other person. We will not be liable for any loss suffered by your failure to do so, including if any third party registers your Onecard in their name (through no fault of ours) after you have used that Onecard and recorded spend against it which is capable of being converted into Rewards upon registration.
  3. If you have a Onecard number entered in your online shopping account you will need to update the Onecard number. This will ensure all your information, including your shopping history and any accumulated Onecard Points, continue to be associated with your Onecard account.
  4. Please note:
    1. Where you have not used your Onecard to earn Rewards prior to registering it, your former Onecard will automatically be cancelled upon the first use of your Onecard. This will mean that you will no longer be able to use your previous Onecard at Countdown. Any Onecard Points accumulated on your Old Onecard prior to use of your Onecard will (to the extent they have not expired) remain on your Onecard account available for use.
    2. Where you have used your Onecard when purchasing products at Countdown prior to registering it, your Old Onecard will automatically be cancelled upon registration of your New Onecard or addition of your New Onecard to your Old Onecard account. This will mean that you will no longer be able to use your Old Onecard at Countdown. Any Onecard Points accumulated on your Old Onecard prior to registration of your New Onecard, or addition of your New Onecard to your Old Onecard account, will (to the extent they have not expired) remain on your Onecard account available for use. Where you use a New Onecard in this way (prior to registration or addition), we will capture the sales information for any transaction(s) and only award the chosen Reward when your New Onecard is registered or added to your Old Onecard account.

Selecting and Changing Your Reward Currency

  1. To finalise the registration process, you must select one of the following Rewards:
    1. Onecard Points (food); or
    2. AA Smartfuel Discounts (Fuel).
  2. You may change your Rewards at any time. When you change your Rewards, any unredeemed Rewards values will be held in your account until they expire, at which time they will be removed from your account. Any accumulated Rewards will not be converted to the new Rewards that you select. If you change your Rewards at a time when you do not have enough of that Reward accumulated to redeem the applicable reward, these will expire at the relevant expiry date. Please note, the Rewards that you change to will only apply to purchases made after the change has taken effect, as notified to you by email.
  3. To change your Rewards please go online and access your account through our Website. Alternatively, download and use the free myCountdown app (for iOS or Android) or call us on 0800 40 40 40. Requests to change Rewards are normally processed within five (5) minutes. However, in exceptional circumstances it may take up to 24 hours to confirm a change of Reward. All changes to Rewards will be confirmed by email and sent to the email address you have provided us.

Using Your Onecard

  1. You can use your Onecard to earn Rewards (subject to these Terms) at Countdown. We may introduce and/or remove further Rewards issuing partners into/from the Programme at any time. Where this occurs, we will endeavour to give you reasonable notice and let you know how this will affect you, if at all.
  2. Your Onecard, including any Rewards, Onecard Rewards e-vouchers or AA Smartfuel Discounts, cannot be transferred, assigned or otherwise dealt with except in accordance with these Terms.
  3. Where a transaction is cancelled or where a refund occurs, any corresponding value of Rewards may be deducted from your Rewards balance if it has been credited to your account.
  4. Rewards will not be earned on any portion of a transaction which is "cash out".
  5. The expiry period of a chosen Reward is normally calculated from the date of spend. However, in some circumstances, this may be calculated from a different time. For example: a. where you have chosen to earn AA Smartfuel Discounts, there may be a lag in your Rewards being added to your Onecard Account the first time you register your Onecard. The expiry of your AA Smartfuel Discounts will be calculated from the date your AA Smartfuel Discount is allocated to your Onecard Account; or b. where you buy goods from Countdown Online, the expiry period of your chosen Reward will be calculated from the invoice date of the goods.
  6. The date the Reward is added to your Onecard Account is the date the Reward is "earned". Please see below for further information in relation to expiry periods.
  7. We may change these Terms in relation to Rewards and how they can be redeemed. We will endeavour to give you reasonable notice of any such changes prior to them taking place and let you know how this will affect you, if at all.
  8. Based on recent shopping history and to ensure that you receive your Rewards and/or Boosts, we may from time to time change the Nominated Card.
  9. It is your responsibility to keep your Onecard safe and secure. Please treat your Onecard account password as your confidential information. You must take all reasonable steps to prevent unauthorised use or access to your Onecard account and information about your membership, including your account password. This includes that you must not use a password for your Onecard account which you have used for any other of your other online accounts. You acknowledge that unauthorised access to your Onecard account and personal information may occur if you do not take these steps..

Linking Onecards

  1. You can create a Household by linking your Onecard with other members of your household who live at the same address and have a registered Onecard in accordance with these Terms.
  2. When multiple Onecards are linked as a Household, the individual applying to set up the Household will be nominated as the "Nominated Onecard cardholder" unless stated otherwise. All other Onecard holders who make up the Household will be the "linked cardholder(s)". To set up a Household please call 0800 40 40 40.
  3. Where you have chosen to earn Onecard Points and are linked as a member of a Household, Onecard Points earned by each member of your Household will be added together and will be allocated to the Nominated Onecard cardholder's account (however, each linked cardholder will be able to view the Onecard Points balance for the entire Household by accessing their account through our the Website or the myCountdown app).
  4. By creating a Household, you accept that any member of the Household may change the Nominated Onecard cardholder. When a change to the Nominated Onecard holder takes place we will send you an email to advise all members of the Household of this change. It is your responsibility to ensure that you keep your contact details up to date to enable such notifications to take place.
  5. Where you have chosen to earn AA Smartfuel discounts, and are linked as a member of a Household, the dollars spent in Countdown towards AA Smartfuel Discounts will be added together with any other members of the Household who have also chosen to earn AA Smartfuel discounts. To gain the most benefit from your AA Smartfuel discounts you should also create a “Group” (under the AA Smartfuel terms and conditions) via the AA Smartfuel website and link the AA Smartfuel component of your Onecard with other Onecard holders who also choose to earn AA Smartfuel Discounts. To do this, please visit AA Smartfuel. Please visit AA Smartfuel for more information on how to be removed from a Group. When you earn AA Smartfuel discounts as part of a Household, the AA Smartfuel discount will be awarded to the Onecard holder whose transaction crossed the applicable spend threshold.
  6. Onecard e-vouchers are issued to the Nominated Onecard holder. As such, if a Nominated Onecard holder is removed from the Household after a Onecard e-voucher has been issued, that Onecard e-voucher will remain in place as issued. Note, in the case of AA Smartfuel Discounts, please see this link for more information on earning and redeeming AA Smartfuel Discounts as these are earned on a "Group" basis and awarded to the nominated primary AA Smartfuel Card holder where applicable

Reward Currencies

  1. You can use your Onecard to earn a Reward (subject to these Terms). Please note, if your Onecard is not registered we are unable to award any Rewards until it has been registered and a Reward chosen. Redemption of any Rewards cannot take place until you have registered your Onecard. You can either select Onecard Points as a Reward (see the section headed “Onecard Points” below for further details), or AA Smartfuel Discounts as a Reward (see the section headed “AA Smartfuel Discounts” below for further details).

Onecard Points

Earning Onecard Points at Countdown

  1. You’ll earn a minimum of one (1) Onecard Point for every dollar you spend (including GST) in a single transaction at Countdown or an Earn Partner.
  2. When calculating your rewards, some products are required by law to be excluded, e.g. tobacco and vaping products. Where these items have been purchased, they will be excluded from earning Rewards.
  3. The purchase of Countdown Gift Cards and Lottery products are also excluded from earning Rewards.
  4. Onecard Points may, from time to time, also be earned through bonus Reward promotions (Boosts). Additional terms and conditions (in addition to these Terms) may apply to such Boosts. We’ll tell you about these at the time.
  5. We reserve the right to change the required minimum spend and/or the number of Onecard Points awarded in respect of the minimum spend amount.

  6. It is your responsibility to present and use your Onecard to gain the benefits associated with the Programme.

AA Smartfuel Discounts

Earning AA Smartfuel Discounts at Countdown

  1. In order to earn AA Smartfuel Discounts on your spend at Countdown, you must meet the weekly spend amounts (set out below) to earn the corresponding AA Smartfuel Discount (note, a "week" is the period from 00:01 on a Monday to 23:59 the following Sunday). Please note, where you buy goods from Countdown Online, your spend will be allocated to your Onecard account in the week in which your goods are invoiced i.e. the week of the invoice date for your goods.
  2. The weekly spend amounts are as follows:
    1. Spend $100 (including GST) on qualifying goods and services in a week to earn AA Smartfuel Discounts of 3 cents per litre off the pump price of Fuel at an AA Smartfuel Redemption Party (up to a maximum of 50 litres per fill).
    2. Spend $200 (including GST) on qualifying goods and services in a week to earn AA Smartfuel Discounts of 6 cents per litre off the pump price of Fuel at an AA Smartfuel Redemption Party (up to a maximum of 50 litres per fill).

  4. The maximum AA Smartfuel Discount (in cents per litre) that may be earned by you at Countdown in a one week period is 6 cents per litre off the pump price for Fuel at an AA Smartfuel Redemption Party. Note, AA Smartfuel Discounts earned in any given week can be added with AA Smartfuel Discounts earned in other weeks (and with AA Smartfuel Discounts earned on purchases other than from Countdown). However, when you use your AA Smartfuel Discounts to pay for Fuel, you must use all AA Smartfuel Discounts which have been earned up to that point in time.
  5. Where you have a Onecard and have added multiple Onecards to your account, the dollars spent in Countdown towards AA Smartfuel Discounts will be added together for each Onecard in your account. However, the AA Smartfuel Discount will be awarded to (and redeemable by) the Onecard that performs the transaction that reaches the earning threshold.
  6. In calculating the spend amount, some products are required by law to be excluded, e.g. tobacco products. We will exclude such products from the calculation of the spend amount where we are required to do so by law.
