The Niesh App permits its users to redeem the following Deals: Normal Deal, Stashable Deal, and Instant Deal, provided the required conditions are met. The following deals exist on the Niesh App:

Normal Deal
A ‘Normal Deal’ is a deal which is live on the Niesh platform that can be redeemed via scanning an in-store QR-code from the associated partner, or by submitting a promo code to the website of the associated partner.

Stashable Deal
A ‘Stashable Deal’ (“Stashable Deal”, “Super Deal”) is a deal which is live on the Niesh platform that can be obtained via scanning one of the dedicated Stashable QR-codes, stored until the related expiry date, and redeemed via scanning an in-store QR-code from the associated partner, or by submitting a promo code to the website of the associated partner.

Instant Deal
An ‘Instant Deal’ is a Deal which is live on the Niesh platform and is only available until: the specified time is extinguished (e.g. ‘for the next hour’ and the hour has passed), the quantity depleted (e.g. the Niesh Advertiser has no more of the specified Instant Deal), or maximum customer limit reached (e.g. ‘the next 20 students’ and 20 have come and redeemed the Instant Deal). The aforementioned are instances in which the Instant Deal becomes unavailable. In such a circumstance Niesh holds no responsibility for any loss or damage that may arise from this situation. An Instant Deal is redeemed via scanning an in-store QR-code from the associated partner, or by submitting a promo code to the website of the associated partner.

Treasure Hunt

Niesh occasionally holds the ‘Niesh Treasure Hunt’ event which contains two key terms: ‘Super Deals’ and ‘Epic Prizes’.

Super Deals are treated as Stashable Deals (please see above for an explanation of how they work).

Epic Prizes (“Prizes”) are won via a lottery style draw. Entrants collect raffle tickets (“Tickets”) which are obtained via scanning specific QR-Codes associated with the event (e.g. the Wellington Treasure Hunt’s Prizes can only be won by scanning QR-Codes within the vicinity of the ‘Wellington Treasure Hunt’ i.e. Auckland QR-Codes will not generate Tickets for users).

At the end of the event, a lottery style draw will be held and the entrants who have the Ticket with the correct sequence of numbers/letters on their device pertaining to the Prize drawn, will be awarded that Prize.

Please note:

  • If a Prize (or part of a Prize) becomes unavailable, for any reason beyond the Prize Contributor’s (and Niesh’s) reasonable control, then a comparable prize (or part of a prize) of equal or greater value may be awarded in lieu at the Prize Contributor’s and Niesh’s discretion.
  • Prizes are not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be taken as cash (unless otherwise indicated). Prizes must be taken as offered and cannot be varied. Prizes cannot be used or redeemed in conjunction with any other offer. Niesh accepts no responsibility for any tax implications that may arise from any Prize winnings. Independent financial advice should be sought.
  • Niesh reserves the right to verify the validity of any and all Tickets and reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant for: (a) tampering with Tickets, tampering with Niesh software, or Prize verification process; (b) submitting a Ticket which is not in accordance with their Conditions of Entry; (c) creating more than one (1) account under their name; or (d) engaging in any unlawful or other improper misconduct calculated to jeopardise the fair and proper conduct of Niesh. Niesh’s legal rights to recover damages or other compensation from such an offender are reserved.


We operate a complaints handling procedure which we will use to try to resolve disputes when they first arise, please let us know at contact@niesh.co.nz if you have any complaints or comments.

Please note that Niesh does not take any responsibility for a Niesh Advertiser’s ability to provide the good or service stated in the Normal Deal/Stashable Deal/Instant Deal. If the Normal Deal/Stashable Deal/Instant Deal is unavailable, for whatever reason, the Niesh Advertiser reserves the right to substitute the Normal Deal/Stashable Deal/Instant Deal for a deal of equal or greater value, subject to New Zealand legislation. This means that if the Niesh Advertiser does not have the good or service displayed in the Normal Deal/Stashable Deal/Instant Deal then the dispute must be resolved between the two parties of the customer and the Niesh Advertiser – Niesh will not be held liable for any loss or damage that may arise from this situation.


If you breach these conditions and we take no action, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these conditions.

Entire Agreement

The above Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement of the parties and supersede any and all preceding and contemporaneous agreements between you and Niesh.
