Christmas is just around the corner and, if you’re like me, the last-minute rush to buy gifts has begun.

Traditionally, this is also the busiest time of year for retailers, with shoppers converging en masse on stores to fill their loved ones’ stockings.

What if there was a way to make Christmas shopping easier and, better still, save money?

Good news – there is. With RACQ’s eGift Card Wallet, members can shop at 35 well-known retailers including Coles, Myer, David Jones, Kmart and Target and save up to 15 percent.

RACQ Partnerships manager Marie Welsby said members could simply register an account at to start saving money.

“The beauty of this platform lies in its simplicity,” she said.

“Members can just upload funds to the eWallet or connect their credit card and purchase eGift Cards from their favourite retailers whenever they need – even while they are shopping in the actual store.

“All they need to do is show the gift card on their mobile device at the checkout.”

There is plenty of scope for saving when shopping for Christmas, whether it be buying food and drink for the family lunch or gifts for under the tree. For a truly hassle-free festive season, you can even just purchase eGift Cards as a gift to use at the Boxing Day sales.

“All the eGift Cards are available anytime on the secure website and can be printed out or accessed from your smartphone while on the go,” Ms Welsby said.
