Frequently Asked Questions
Childcare Saver Support
At the moment, we are not able to accept any new members. If you are already a member, you no longer have to have a child attending a G8 Education centre to continue participating in Childcare Saver. This means even if your child graduates or you decide to leave, you can still access the great benefits. Please see our Terms and Conditions for full details of eligibility.
Contacting Childcare Saver
If you have a bank account registered to your Childcare Saver account, we will automatically request a withdrawal to your nominated bank account when the status of all pending transactions transition to approved status.
If you do not have a bank account registered to your Childcare Saver account, we will notify you via email to register a bank account. If pending transactions have transitioned to approved and no bank account has been registered, those rewards will be forfeited.
There are the two potential statuses that you may encounter when accruing rewards.
Approved - these are cleared rewards from the retailer and available for withdraw to your nominated bank account.
Pending - these rewards have not yet cleared from the retailer. Pending rewards normally occur where your purchase has not yet been paid in full (i.e., layby, deposit on airline flights) or has not passed the retailers return policy timeframes
MAXIMISING CHILDCARE SAVER
We are in regular discussions with new retailers to add them to the program, offering you more choice for shopping and more opportunities to receive rewards. If you have any recommendations of retailers or if you are a retailer yourself and would like to participate, please get in touch with the Contact Us form.
There is no limit to how much you can shop. The more you shop using the app to access retailers, the more rewards you earn. Check the app regularly for current special offers.
Rewards earned do not expire and are active for as long as your account is active. The time for rewards to transition from pending to approved varies between retailers and in some instances is linked to their returns policy timeframes. Once your rewards are listed as approved, they can be withdrawn to your nominated bank account.
Rewards that you are eligible for will be displayed as pending immediately upon checkout. Once the retailer's return policy timeframe has expired, rewards will transition to approved, allowing you to checkout available balances over $10.00 to your nominated bank account.
Log in to the Childcare Saver app and on your dashboard you will see your reward balance.
Balance transfers are not available. You can invite secondary members to the program which will allow them to contribute to your balance by making purchases by checking out through the Childcare Saver app.
