Australia: Spotlight on Hire For Baby

BitcoinRewards are proud to have onboard Hire For Baby Pty. LTD for all of your baby needs and baby car seats!


Hire For Baby are a one stop shop for all your baby & child hire needs. They supply top of the line branded car seats, all complying with Australian Standard AS/NZ1754. Their seats range from birth right through to eight years old, as per state requirements. 

They have 75 branches nationwide to assist you with your child’s safety needs and they even fit your hired car seats for free! You can feel at ease knowing once you hire from Hire For Baby, that your child will be safe and comfortable. Some key benefits from their website:


Take the hassle out of buying that car seat that you are only going to use for a very short time and find your nearest Hire For Baby.


Hire periods do differ depending on the type of seat you require and the availability at the time you book. All hire rates do include free installation with a professional restraint fitter, so you can ensure a correct fit for your child and car. They have all the adapters you need and take the hassle out of doing it yourself.  Please note that not all models are available at all locations. 

Ensuring child safety while travelling and ensuring that each child is fitted into the correct seat for their age and size is very important to protect them from any unforeseeable harm, danger, injury and even death. Australia has its own national requirements to provide maximum safety protection for your babies and it is imperative that your child is fastened correctly into the age-appropriate seat for them.

At Hire For Baby, you can take the stress out of trying to fit, plus earn a generous 6.4% cashback in Bitcoin Rewards.

*Bitcoin Rewards are only valid when accessing Hire For Baby Pty. LTD through the platform.

What's New at BitcoinRewards?

If you’ve visited the BitcoinRewards platform in the past few weeks you may have noticed a few changes on site. We’ve been working around the clock to enhance the utility and benefits of the platform for our current and future members.

Some notable achievements

We launched BitcoinRewards on the 1st of December 2017 with 232 merchants across Australia and New Zealand participating on the new platform. We are happy to announce that two and half months into the BitcoinRewards journey, we now have over 710 merchants aboard the BitcoinRewards platform making us the largest digital currency cashback site in the world!

Geographically our merchants are spread across the following locations:

  • 121 Global merchants
  • 277 Australian merchants
  • 12 New Zealand merchants
  • 250 United States merchants
  • 41 United Kingdom merchants
  • 9 merchants covering our Asian regions

Whilst we are proud with our first two and half months of activity, we have just scratched the surface of what’s in store for BitcoinRewards. We plan to triple our merchant participation by the end of Q2 2018 to a minimum of 2100 stores across our aforementioned locations.

The more quality merchants available to our members, the more fantastic rewards our members can earn by demonstrating their loyalty to those merchants on the BitcoinRewards platform - it truly is a win-win relationship!

We’ve also enabled some other great features.

Geo Display

Our members now view local stores and content via geobased filtration. This makes navigation and search functionality user-friendly by only including the relevant stores to our members according to their geolocation.

Currency Display

The currency-related fields on site now display member’s national currency according to their geolocation. Members can also amend the currency display in the “Settings” of the member “Dashboard” if they wish to operate or denominate in another currency for ease of use.

Minimum Payout

We’ve lowered the payout rate of Bitcoin to $20.00 and Bitcoin Cash to $1.00 meaning members can now access their funds faster without needing to accumulate rewards for long periods of time before minimum thresholds are met.

Promotional Email Campaign

We’ve begun the construction of a regular email campaign so our members are alerted to the hottest deals and cashbacks in BitcoinRewards. We expect to implement this in March 2018. We’re excited about increasing our engagement with members and connecting them to leading merchants.

2018 is going to be a huge year for digital currency and will see many more people wanting access to a new form of money - Bitcoin. We think BitcoinRewards truly serves a niche market by enabling access to Bitcoin without needing to blow the family budget - for doing something people already do, shopping online!

With our members channelling their spending power to the merchants on the BitcoinRewards platform, our members can be a part of the new financial revolution with minimum exposure to risk - a savvy way to shop and accumulate digital currency at the same time!

Welcome Aboard

Our values

In everything we do, we believe in being inclusive, not exclusive. We do this by enabling simple and convenient access to the best online shopping deals from the world’s best online shopping destinations. We also just happen to offer the world’s most inclusive and desirable reward. Bitcoin. Welcome to BitcoinRewards.

So what is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the world’s first successful implementation of a peer-to-peer electronic cash system. From a user perspective, Bitcoin is perhaps best described as ‘money for the Internet’. Do take note, it’s not for the faint-hearted. You can learn a little more about bitcoin in our FAQ.

Why Bitcoin?

I’ve been immersed in Bitcoin and digital currency since late 2013. Since then, the public perception of Bitcoin has matured and mainstream acceptance is taking shape. We believe Australians deserve the choice to define what a reward means to them and deserve the right of inclusion.

My career foundation was built on retail, so it was a perfect fit to enable savvy shoppers to find fantastic online deals from leading retailers and in exchange reward them with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and in the near future other digital currencies.

Pre launch statistics.

We’ve had a great uptake from Australian retailers. Of our initial reach out, 232 online retailers have accepted participation on the BitcoinRewards platform. Our most prominent categories to date are Clothing and Fashion with 86 retailers, followed by Health and Beauty with 28 retailers, Home and Garden with 16 retailers and Food & Wine with 12 retailers. The remaining retailers and service providers are split into 25 additional categories. We anticipate that we will double these numbers by end of Q1 2018 enabling access to more amazing deals, retailers and rewards.

Our commitment to compliance.

BitcoinRewards is excited about the future of digital currency and we’re excited to enable inclusion of our platform to Australian shoppers. For this reason, we take compliance seriously. We engaged the services of Lehman Walsh lawyers in November of 2017 to ensure we meet all current and future applicable Australian regulations. We paid in Bitcoin.


I’d like to express my gratitude to our members, partners and merchants. We’re excited about matching shoppers to fantastic deals from Australia’s best online shopping destinations and rewarding them with BitcoinRewards. Let’s bring in 2018 with style and BitcoinRewards.
