Bunnings Power Pass is a trade discount, offered to eligible ABN holders, giving 5%+ off each and every purchase at Bunnings Warehouse. Bunnings are notorious for every day low prices (backed by a price match guarantee), however, the Bunnings Power Pass is the last remaining way to extract a further discount.
Here is what you need to know in order to get a Bunnings Power Pass and start receiving a Bunnings discount.
What is the discount you receive using the Bunnings Power Pass?
It depends on the products you purchase (each having their own margins and commercial pricing) – though the discount is around 5% for each and every shop at Bunnings. This amount is taken off the amount you must pay by simply scanning your Power Pass card at checkout.
Who is eligible for the Bunnings Power Pass discount?
To qualify for Power Pass, the key requirement is that you must hold an ABN number.
Bunnings also restrict Power Pass to ABN holders in relevant industries (be it trades, government, teaching and building) – though it appears just providing an ABN will suffice (no further evidence of your industry required in-store or online).
Three variations of Bunnings Power Pass
Bunnings Power Pass trade discount scheme is offered in three distinct varieties. For the purpose of receiving a 5% discount, you simply need the basic Power Pass ‘Cash’ membership which is 100% free and gives you immediate access to commercial pricing (the 5% Bunnings discount).
Bunnings Power Pass ‘Cash’
This is the easiest way to access commercial pricing and receive immediate discounts when shopping at Bunnings. There is zero cost to sign up for Bunnings Power Pass ‘Cash’ and joining is as simple as filling out a form (name, address, phone number and ABN).
Bunnings Power Pass ‘30 day accounts’.
This includes the features of Bunnings Power Pass ‘Cash’ but also gives you access to negotiable commercial pricing, credit limits of $10,000+ and an account manager at Bunnings to help manage your relationship. You will be able to buy things from Bunnings and repay the costs within 30 days of purchase; this is your typical ’30 day terms’ account that lets you obtain products today and defer payment by 30 days.
Bunnings Power Pass ‘Credit’.
This is essentially a Bunnings credit card, offering up to $5,000 credit on a card at a low rate of interest (~8.9% p.a. with no annual fees). This gives you the flexibility to purchase goods at Bunnings and repay on your own schedule, with up to 60 days interest-free. Again, the Bunnings Power Pass ‘Credit’ gives you access to commercial pricing to receive the 5% discount.
Features and benefits of using Bunnings Power Pass
The Bunnings Power Pass is a great discount initiative from Bunnings; it’s capable of helping you save money and save time. The key features of Bunnings Power Pass include:
Commercial pricing discount. Since signing up, I’ve seen an average discount of 5% on all my purchases when shopping at Bunnings using the Bunnings Power Pass ‘Cash’ card. I am told by Bunnings that the rate of discount can vary, depending on the types of products you are purchasing. If you’re unsure, check the Bunnings Online Trade Store to compare the retail prices versus the commercial price.
Smart invoice and receipt management tools. As part of Power Pass, you will receive access to an online portal to manage your balance (if using Power Pass ‘30 day accounts’ or ‘credit’), activity statements and personal details. A really cool feature is that each and every purchase you make is listed in the statement section; not only that but it lists the invoice (great for tax reporting) and the receipt itself (perfect for potential warranty claims in future). Simply visit the Bunnings Power Pass Login to start using.
Access to the Bunnings Online Trade Store. You will have access to the online trade store, which showcases the Bunnings range but at commercial prices (discounted).
Exclusive invites to trade events and specials. You’ll be the first to hear of promotion, trade events and discounts on the Bunnings range. A great perk, that could occasionally pay off when a special arises that you intended to purchase.
Sign up for Bunnings Power Pass
Regardless of whether you’re a tradie, teacher or plain old homeowner; you probably spend a considerable amount of time and money at Bunnings, making the sign up to Power Pass worthy of your time and energy.
There are two ways to sign up to Bunnings Power Pass:
In-store sign up process for Power Pass
Go to the ‘trade desk’ or ‘information desk’ and ask for a Power Pass signup form. You will receive a rather crude piece of paper that asks you to fill out your name, home address, contact number, ABN number and what trade you’re in. If you’re unsure of what to say for trade, you can simply state ‘Handyman’ or ‘Handywoman’.
You will be issued a temporary Power Pass on the spot, giving you immediate access to the 5% discount.
Online sign up process for Power Pass
Go to the Bunnings Power Pass trade website and click ‘Apply Now’. Be certain to choose the correct version of Power Pass when signing up, to avoid obtaining a credit card or 30-day trade account by accident.
