KidStart savings are earned on eligible purchases made at retailers listed on KidStart's shopping section. Each retailer has their own information page and this contains information on what savings are available, which transactions are eligible and how transactions are tracked by KidStart.
We track transactions in a variety of ways. The main ones are as follows:
Through the website or the mobile app / website, you must click the Shop Now button next to the retailer. We send a unique code to the retailer when you click this button which allows the retailer to report any purchases you make back to us. Note: In these cases if you go to the retailer’s website directly without clicking on the KidStart link or if you subsequently click on a link through google or another website to the same retailer then your purchases will not be recorded.
Through the KidStart Savings Prompt; you will be prompted if the retailer is part of the KidStart Savings Prompt and as above, you must click the button when prompted.
For a few retailers, we track your purchases using credit or debit cards. You can earn KidStart Savings at these retailers online and/or in store when you use your registered cards. These retailers have a card picture on their retailer information page. To register your cards, simply add your Visa or Mastercard card details in the Registered Cards tab in the Manage Account section and wait 48 hours before using them.
For a few retailers it is necessary to quote a reference number (either over the phone or online) in order to obtain your KidStart Savings. This will be made clear on the information page for the retailer.
