Nuffnang Coles Group & Myer: How Do You Turn $10 into $100?


Over the course of the last three weeks we have seen some tremendously creative and disgustingly frugal entries into the Coles Group and Myer Gift card competition. Thank you so much to all those who took the time to enter, we have thouroughly enjoyed reading every single one of them.

Unfortunately however there can only be two winners. And thanks to Coles Group and Myer these two winners are walking away with  a $100 gift card to spend at Coles group stores. Please join us in congratulating the following Nuffnang bloggers:

Most creative way to spend $10

Violet LeBeaux

Most frugal way to spend $10

Enoch Chee-Lok Lau


Thanks again for all the great entries and be sure to keep your eye on this blog for other great giveaways and competitions.


The Nuffnang team



With another Nuffnang competition of course!

Coles Group & Myer

Shopping bags

As August is the month of our relaunch, there are more opportunities for you to get involved and win than ever before. Thanks to the good people at the Coles Group & Myer, we’ve been able to send you a great $10 gift card as a part of your “Thank you & Welcome pack“.

Now you could choose to just take that $10 and spend it on socks, but being the creative bunch you are, we thought we’d give you the chance to turn it into something more! And you’ve got TWO chances to win! The Coles Group & Myer are offering us two $100 gift cards to give to the Nuffie’s that are our champion shoppers.


Challenge 1:

Be the Nuffie that spends $10 in the most creative, interesting or fun way. It is totally up to you what you choose to do with it, you just have to impress the Nuffnang team here with your shopping skills.

Challenge 2:

Most frugal Nuffie award. How far can you stretch $10 and what can you make it do?

As you shop, make sure to record what you’re doing and post the pics or videos on your blog. Then leave us a comment on this blog post to show the Nuffnang community just how creative you are. We’ll be checking out every single Nuffie blog post and be selecting the best post! But HURRY – the competition closes on the 31st of August 2009 (approx 2 weeks) with the winner will announced on the 4th September August 2009.

And for those who HAVEN’T received your Coles Group & Myer Gift Card and want to participate in one of the two Nuffnang challenges then let us know as soon as you can by sending us an email with your postal address to We will then send you a $10 gift card so you can start blogging about your shopping adventures! Hurry because there are only 50 to give away!!

So get spending and earn yourself even more cash!

***** Due to overwhelming response in the last 24 hours, we have given away all 50 Coles Group & Myer Gift Card! We thank you for your interest and look forward to selecting the winning post! *****
