Ever so slightly off-topc but I thought I'd throw in that Everyday Rewards arent even offered in Tasmania. Membership cards are not recognised, we have a local system that operates purely as a "cash back" reward scheme. Only inconvenienceing 500k potential members but an inconvenience none the le...
