Do I earn VALUEclub points when I purchase or use a gift card?
VALUEclub points are earned when a customer uses a Dunnes Stores Gift Card to pay for items online or in store. For paper vouchers, points can only be earned on in-store purchases.
For this reason, customers are unable to earn VALUEclub points when a gift card or voucher is purchased initially.
Can I use another payment method along with my gift card?
Customers can use up to 5 different Dunnes Stores Gift Cards when paying for their order on dunnesstores.com. If their total order value exceeds the amount available on their gift card(s), customers can select an additional method to pay the remaining balance. These include Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, and Maestro cards.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to combine a gift card payment with an additional payment using PayPal.
