Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions

The terms and conditions (Terms) below outline your obligations as a Member and Grow My Money Pty Ltd's (GMM) obligations to you.

By accessing and using the website at https://growmymoney.com.au, the browser extensions, the mobile app and any other associated apps, sites and social media channels (together the Platform) plus associated toolkits and services together with joining this cashback rewards program as a Member (together the Service), you agree and are deemed to have read, understood and accepted, and consented to, GMM's Privacy Policy and these Terms. If you have any concerns or objections about these Terms, you should not access or use the Platform or Service.

GMM may change the Terms at any time at our discretion. You will be notified of any change and where we believe that such change materially diminishes the benefits of, or the way we provide, the Service, that notice will be provided at least thirty (30) days in advance. A copy of the revised Terms will also be available on the Platform. Your continued use of or participation in the Platform or Service, or receipt of any cashback reward after this notice is provided will be deemed to be acceptance of, and consent to, the revised Terms. If you do not wish to accept the revised Terms you may notify us at support@growmymoney.com.au to close your Platform Account (your registered account to login to, and use, the Platform or Service) and confirm that you wish us to pay any confirmed cashback rewards in that account to your nominated Product Account (the superannuation fund, home mortgage account or other product which may be offered in the future) or donate them to a charity of our choice.

1. About our Service

1.1. Grow My Money Pty Ltd (GMM), the owner of the Platform, operates a shopping platform where you earn cashback rewards from retailers into your nominated Product Account, either by shopping online or in-store at a participating retailer.

1.2. When you sign up, you need to provide us with accurate information about your Product Account so that we can make payments to the right account.

1.3. When you shop with retailers who have joined our program, you will receive the cashback reward amount set out on the Platform for your purchase. So that you can receive the cashback reward, we must be able to track your purchases, which we can only do if you:

  • are logged in to the Platform and have clicked the retailer’s “Shop” button on the Platform, or via the mobile app, when you shop online;
  • shop directly from the retailer-specific promotional emails we send you when you shop online; or
  • have linked your eligible Visa or Mastercard credit or debit card to your Platform Account and shop at a participating in-store retailer or card-linked online retailer.

Alternatively, you can use the Chrome or Safari browser extension for desktop and tablet. For online purchases, when you visit the retailer’s website, you’ll receive a pop-up notification, which you then need to activate. You’ll need to ensure you have your cookies turned on and that your browser settings permit pop-ups. Please note that not all online retailers on the website or mobile app will appear on the browser extension as they may not have given permission to be added to it.

We will not be able to track your cashback rewards for online or in-store purchases if:

  • your browser is in incognito mode
  • you use a browser other than Chrome or Safari
  • you do not have your cookies turned on (see Frequently Asked Questions)
  • you click on the “Shop” button, then close the window, then visit the retailer’s site directly
  • you use a coupon code that has not come from GMM
  • you use a gift card
  • you are redirected to that retailer’s app and that retailer is not a card-linked online retailer
  • you shop in-store at a non-participating retailer
  • you shop in-store at a participating GMM retailer or online via a participating card-linked GMM retailer but use a debit or credit card that you have not linked to GMM

1.4. Please note that not all debit and credit cards are eligible to be linked to your Platform Account. All determinations as to whether a card is eligible is at our third-party provider's sole discretion. For example, certain Mastercard and Visa cards are not eligible to be linked to your Platform Account, including, but not limited to, the following: prepaid cards, corporate cards, purchasing cards, Visa gift cards, store cards which can only be used at their respective retailers’ stores, government-administered prepaid cards (including Medicare and healthcare cards) and cards that are not processed through the Visa payment system or the Mastercard payment system. To be eligible, the debit or credit card must be issued by an Australian Financial Institution.

1.5. GMM reserves the right not to pay cashback rewards where the purchase was not made in accordance with clause 1.3 above.

1.6. You acknowledge that any cashback rewards you earn through the Platform will be paid into your Platform Account and then transferred to your nominated Product Account and that, in the case of superannuation, you will not be able to access your super until you meet a condition of release.

1.7. We are not affiliated with any superannuation fund or mortgage provider. For any questions about how your super fund or home mortgage works, you should contact your fund administrator or mortgage provider directly.

1.8. If it appears you will earn more than $1,000 of cashback rewards in any single payment cycle, we will be in touch to discuss additional requirements regarding payments. If you have not provided your Product Account details, we reserve the right to suspend your access to the Service.

1.9. Each time we attempt to make a payment to your Product Account, we reserve the right to charge a payment processing fee and this will be deducted from the cashback reward before it is paid to your Product Account. If the payment details you have provided are incorrect and we unsuccessfully attempt to make a payment, you will still be charged the payment processing fee for the bounced payment.

2. The Platform and Service do not provide personal advice

2.1. While we use reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information included in the Platform and Service, any information included in the Platform and Service is not personal financial advice. The information in the Platform and Service is general in nature and may not be suitable for your individual objectives, financial situation or needs.

2.2. The information in the Platform and Service is not in any circumstances to be considered as a substitute for professional financial advice. Any investment strategies discussed on the Platform are not appropriate for every investor. You should always discuss investment decisions with your licenced financial adviser.

2.3. We do not represent that we are permitted to provide general advice in each jurisdiction from which you may view or access the Platform.

2.4. GMM is a corporate authorised representative of Australian Financial Services Licence holder, Shartru Wealth Management Pty Ltd, ABN 46 158 536 871, AFSL 422409. Please refer to the Financial Services Guide for more information.

3. Some fine print about how the Service works – read this carefully along with the Frequently Asked Questions

3.1. We will usually make payments from your Platform Account to your nominated GMM Product Account between the 20th and 25th of each month after we receive the cashback rewards payment from the retailer. This will not be straight after you make your purchase and could even be some months after your purchase. The process is explained in more detail in Frequently Asked Questions.

3.2. Sometimes we won’t be able to make a payment to your Product Account. For example, if you have given us incorrect details, we will not be able to make the payment. In these cases, we will try to contact you to let you know about the issue.

3.3. In the case of superannuation, other situations where we might not be able to make a payment are:

  • if you are not eligible to make contributions into your super or if your super fund is not eligible to receive contributions. If you have any questions about whether you can make these kinds of contributions, you should first check with your super fund or read your super fund’s product disclosure statement; or
  • your super fund may have set a minimum amount for payment. For example, some super funds will not accept payments of less than $10. If your cashback rewards don’t reach your super fund’s minimum amount, we will hold onto your cashback rewards until you have accumulated the minimum amount.

3.4. In the case of home mortgages, other situations where we might not be able to make a payment are:

  • if your home loan is on a fixed interest rate and you have reached your mortgage provider’s extra repayment limit; or
  • if you are making interest only repayments rather than principal and interest repayments.

3.5. Where you have provided your Product Account payment details and we cannot make the payment and it looks like we won’t be able to make it in the future (e.g. your provider advises us that it cannot receive payments, or a payment bounces) we will endeavour to make appropriate arrangements for your cashback rewards. For example, you might be able to swap between Product Accounts.

3.6. If you have not provided your Product Account payment details to us, or you do not respond to our requests to provide correct details, your cashback rewards will stay in your Platform Account until you provide us with these details, provided that you continue to shop and earn cashback rewards. However, we reserve the right to suspend your access to the Service.

3.7. If we have made repeated attempts to contact you by any combination of phone, email and SMS over a period of 12 months and you have not shopped within that 12 month period then we will close your Platform Account and you will forfeit your cashback rewards. We will notify you one final time, thirty (30) days prior to closing your Platform Account, by email and/or SMS to the details listed in that account. Once your Platform Account is closed, you waive any right or claim with respect to your cashback rewards. We will retain an administration and processing fee of up to $2 and transfer any remaining cashback rewards balance in your Platform Account to a charity of our choice.

3.8. GMM takes a percentage of each cashback reward from the retailer; this is known as a referral commission. The cashback reward offers and amounts which you can see in the Platform have already had the referral commission deducted. Any variation in commission amounts is at GMM’s discretion, although we will always endeavour to secure the best commission rate for our members.

5.3. You must provide a valid email address when you register to become a Platform Member and create a Platform Account. By providing this email address you are giving us permission to email you.

We may cancel your Membership if you do not comply with, or if we reasonably consider that you are not complying with, any of these Terms.

5.6 We recommend you regularly log in to your Platform Account to ensure that your cashback rewards on purchases have been properly credited and that your Platform Account balance is up to date. If you identify any missing cashback rewards, errors or discrepancies, please notify us as soon as possible, but in any case within sixty (60) days of the purchase date. We will not investigate any missing or incorrect cashback rewards if you do not provide a copy of your purchase receipt detailing Order ID, purchase date and purchase amount and, neither at any time after ninety (90) days from the purchase date.

5.7. We may at any time discontinue the Platform or Service in whole or in part. If you are a Platform Member you will be notified via the Service.

5.8. To the extent permitted by law, we will have no liability to you for the cancellation or discontinuance.

6. Use of linked debit or credit cards and transaction information

6.1. By registering an eligible debit or credit card (Payment Card) in connection with transaction monitoring for both online and in-store card-linked retailers, you authorise us to share your payment card information with the third parties that enable us to provide the Services (Third-Party Service Providers) and your eligible debit or credit card network (e.g. Visa, Mastercard) (Card Network) so it knows you enrolled. You authorise the Card Network to monitor transactions on your registered Payment Card(s) to identify qualifying online and in-store purchases to determine whether you have qualified for or earned a cashback reward linked to your Payment Card, and for the Card Network to share such transaction details with us. You agree that we and Third-Party Service Providers may view the transactions made by you with participating online and in-store retailers.

6.2. You may opt-out of online or in-store transaction monitoring on any Payment Card by logging in to your Platform Account and deleting that linked Payment Card. Please note that if you opt-out of transaction monitoring, earning cashback rewards via purchasing at online or in-store card-linked retailers will not be available to you.

7. Unauthorised or Mistaken Transactions

7.1. It is generally not possible to reverse a completed payment made into a superannuation or mortgage account, even if that payment was made by mistake.

7.2. If you suspect there has been fraudulent activity on your Platform Account, you should immediately contact us so we can take appropriate steps to address the issue, such as suspending your login or requiring a password change.
