If you perhaps need to hint at some Netflix and chill, well here’s your chance. The streaming giant has confirmed that its Gift Cards are coming to SA.

The Netflix Gift Card is a prepaid voucher which entitles the owner to stream Netflix to the value loaded on the card. Gift Cards can be loaded with between R150 to R1 000 and they don’t expire.

For example, a gift card loaded with R200 will give you two months of Netflix streaming on the basic plan (1 device in SD); R139 will give you one month of Netflix streaming on the standard plan (2 devices in HD), and a gift card loaded with R169 will give you 1 month Netflix streaming on the premium plan (4 devices in HD or Ultra HD). You can create up to five profiles on each subscription.  

Anyone with access to a compatible device for streaming (PC, tablet, mobile phone or console) can use a Netflix Gift Card. Existing Netflix members can use the Gift Card to top up their Netflix account credit, while those who do not yet have an account can redeem their access credit by visiting and entering the pin code printed on the back of the card.

Those who are eligible for a free trial will receive a free month of service in addition to the amount credited to the Gift Card. The balance of the Gift Card will only be used to pay for your selected plan after your free month trial expires.

If your Gift Card runs out, your Netflix account will be cancelled, so another Gift Card needs to be purchased or an alternative payment method added.

Shoppers will be able to purchase Netflix Gift Cards from selected retailers including CAN, Pick n Pay, Checkers, Dis-Chem, HiFi Corp, Incredible Connection, Game, Dion Wired, Makro, Builders Warehouse, Game4U, AWX, Kloppers and BT Games.
