Woolworths and Australia Post Partnership save Customers Money

Posted by on December 6, 2016 at 8:22 AM

Woolworths has partnered with Australia Post in efforts to encourage more customers to visit their stores. Aldi is applying immense pressure on the industry and with the announcement of Amazon Fresh hitting our shores next year, it’s no wonder Coles and Woolies are going to great lengths to retain our attention.

Woolworths and Australia Post Partnership save Customers Money

Woolworths will be the first supermarket to offer customers the ability to combine their online shopping with their supermarket run. The plan is to roll out 500 Australia Post 24/7 parcel lockers into stores across the country, to allow you to collect your deliveries from instore.

Amazon Waves Aussie Retail Industry Goodbye

Posted by on November 8, 2016 at 8:20 AM

This time next year we will have already had a months worth of the new Amazon, it claims will destroy the Australian retail industry. The e-commerce giant plans on launching in Australia as we know it elsewhere in the world with prices it claims will be 30% cheaper than local stores.

Amazon Waves Aussie Retail Industry Goodbye

This doesn’t seem to simply be a marketing threat either, because a special briefing with the Australian Financial Review last week revealed that the company will be researching and collecting price points on everything before setting prices at a 30% discount. Their motto for Australia’s high prices is, “your margin is our opportunity.”

Black Friday and Cyber Monday – Do the Online Deals really Save Money?

Posted by on November 7, 2016 at 8:11 AM

The online phenomenon that comes around every year known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be with us Thursday 24th November. The main focus is saving money via online deals and bargains, but the promise feels hollow. There is no doubt plenty of deals to take advantage of but do they really save you money?

Black Friday and Cyber Monday – Do the Online Deals really Save Money?

We want to look at what ways you can score the best deals during these online shopping sales, but also let you know our opinion on why we believe these sales come across as meaningless and potentially do not add value for money. If you agree, we offer alternative shopping methods that will more likely be better deals.

New Liquor Market Stores Aim to Sell Cheapest Alcohol in Australia

Posted by on November 2, 2016 at 8:08 AM

Australia’s obsession with low prices is continuing to drive a new market of cut price products. We’ve already seen Aldi dominate the market using this method and Coles wants to jump onto the bandwagon by selling lower priced, affordable booze through its new discounted alcohol store Liquor Market.

New Liquor Market Stores Aim to Sell Cheapest Alcohol in Australia

The first store opened in the Melbourne eastern suburbs of Ringwood at the end of October and it’s taking a number of pointers from the discount chain ALDI to put people in the right money saving frame of mind. Unlike the larger offering of Dan Murphys, Liquor Market will focus on fewer items within a smaller set up all revolved around saving money.

The General Store from Aussie Farmers Direct to Beat Coles and Woolworths

Posted by on August 29, 2016 at 8:38 AM

Everyone loves saving money, but there’s no better bargain than one that directly supports Australian farmers and producers. That’s what the new major player in the Australian supermarket industry is offering. Aussie Farmers Direct started in 2005 as a small delivery only service specialising in milk, but now things have grown up.

The General Store from Aussie Farmers Direct to Beat Coles and Woolworths

The company announced last week that it will be taking on the supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths with its new online grocery platform, The General Store. Expect to see a full online supermarket shop with prices matching Coles and Woolworths and beating IGA and ALDI whilst still supporting local Aussie farmers.

Money Saving Father’s Day Gifts He Will Actually Want

Posted by on August 25, 2016 at 8:53 AM

In under 2 weeks on Sunday 4th September most of us will be seeing or speaking with our fathers and maybe giving them a gift too. On the 15th August I wrote an article containing some wacky fathers day gifts but these may have not been ideal. Therefore if you want to get ahead of the curve and allow plenty of time for delivery then here are some more serious gift ideas he will actually want to receive.

Money Saving Father’s Day Gifts He Will Actually Want

Seeing as the previous article contained gifts that were gimmicky, this week you can expect to see items that will help you save money whilst still getting a rock star present that impresses the big guy. Expect everything from discount cards to Blu-ray home entertainment systems and even a machine that will chop his food for him.

Amazon Fresh Plans to Launch Grocery Delivery in Australia

Posted by on August 16, 2016 at 8:23 AM

The international e-commerce giant known as Amazon has been giving signs that it plans to launch its Amazon Fresh service in Australia. Our country has already witnessed a huge shake up within the supermarket industry from the game changer ALDI, but now Amazon Fresh plans to take them on along with Coles and Woolworths too with its home delivery service.

Amazon Fresh Plans to Launch Grocery Delivery in Australia

There have been loose dates thrown around mentioning that the new Amazon Fresh service will start no later than early 2018, with a heavy focus on trying to get it ready for launch in 2017. The main perk of using the service will be same-day delivery of fresh groceries; the future looks bright in my opinion.

New Games Consoles: PlayStation 4 Neo and Xbox One Project Scorpio

Posted by on July 4, 2016 at 8:21 AM

There are a few buzzwords flying around the gaming world at the moment, so you may have heard of things like “Project Scorpio” or “Neo” and perhaps wondered what they were. If you are one of those in the know, then you’ll be aware that these are code names apply to projects of Microsoft’s and Sony’s respectively.

New Games Consoles: PlayStation 4 Neo and Xbox One Project Scorpio

The gaming world is due a console upgrade and it sounds like we can expect these new generation devices to play existing games currently available on today’s console. We can also expect them to function in much the same way as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One currently work. However, it would appear as if some big upgrades are coming in terms of horsepower and 4K / UltraHD definition. Read the rest of this entry »

Chemist Warehouse Review and a Comparison with other Online Pharmacies

Posted by on May 19, 2016 at 8:16 AM

We’ve seen a growing interest in Chemist Warehouse deals and coupon code discounts on Buckscoop this year. However, they are not the only online pharmacy who we see deals being posted for. Therefore, I thought it would be valuable to give readers a review of Chemist Warehouse as well as a comparison between them and the other chemist “e-tailers” in Australia.

Chemist Warehouse Review and a Comparison with other Online Pharmacies

There are certainly advantages to using online pharmacies including scenarios where you may be feeling sick and not wanting to leave the house, or you’re trying to find ways to save money on your purchases. A very easy way to get discounts, for example, would be to head to Buckscoop’s Vouchers page to pick up a Chemist Warehouse coupon, an Amcal promotional code, or a Chemist Direct discount code to use during checkout (all from the comfort of your own home). Other people may find online pharmacies useful for buying personal drugs or products that get shipped to them in a discreet manner, rather than having to buy them in person over the counter. Deciding which chemist or pharmacy to buy from online will depend on what you’re type of product you’re after, as well as a few other factors. So let’s dive into that now with a review on some of the most popular ones in Australia.

Hand Picked Selection of the Top Easter Sales Currently On

Posted by on March 26, 2016 at 8:50 AM

During the first quarter of the year, we’re often left with a series of lacklustre sales and promotions from retailers once all the big discounts over the festive season have ended. The good news though, is that Easter is often a time where decent sales pop up across the Australian retail landscape. Therefore, I’ve hand picked a selection of what I believe to be some of the top Easter sales currently on at a variety of the most popular retailers here on Buckscoop.

Hand Picked Selection of the Top Easter Sales Currently On

For each one, I’ve broken down what the general Easter sale involves as well as highlighting whether we have any active deals or coupons for them on Buckscoop. Expect stores such as David Jones, Winemarket, Dissh and The Iconic to appear in this list, with some offering more than 50% off.

Using Google Shopping to Find Discounted Prices and Online Bargains

Posted by on March 7, 2016 at 8:25 AM

If there is one thing I have learnt from my time at Buckscoop it has to be this – why pay more for an item when you don’t have to? Our money saving blog and resident deal hunters provide us with enough information on how to find the best deals online every single day. For those of you that are still missing the trick, however, here is a step-by-step guide.

Using Google Shopping to Find Discounted Prices and Online Bargains

Buying full priced items results in one winner only, and don’t be deluded into thinking that’s you. This guide will show you how to buy just about any item you like at a discount, moving the winners title away from retailers towards yourself. To begin saving money, all you need is a bit of patience and some knowledge of where to look and you’ll be picking up bargains in no time. Read the rest of this entry »

A Comparison of Woolworths’ and Coles’ Online Shopping Experiences for New Users

Posted by on February 18, 2016 at 8:56 AM

This week, Buckscoop has an exclusive voucher from Woolworths which gives you $15 off your first online shop plus free delivery too (on orders over $150). Simply apply the code “BUCKSCOOP15” during the checkout process to get your discount. In light of this, I thought it would make sense to do a review of how Woolworths and Coles stack up against each other in terms of their online shopping experiences for any of you who are new to buying your groceries online.

A Comparison of Woolworths and Coles Online Shopping Experiences for New Users

For instance, Woolies previously used to inflate the prices of their goods online with their justification being that it was needed to cover both delivery and service costs. The good news is though, that as of March 2015 they decided to ditch this discriminatory pricing behaviour towards online customers setting the cost of all products to be equal, no matter whether they were advertised online or in-store. As for Coles, on the other hand, customers could be paying between 3-7% more for products simply due the convenience offered by shopping online. So let’s continue now to explore the differences between Woolworths and Coles to see how they compare.

Aussie Retailers Need to Add Value to Customer Experiences like the USA and Europe

Posted by on November 24, 2015 at 10:42 AM

In a recent article I mentioned that the Australian dollar was decreasing in value and that’s good news for Aussie retailers. The increasing cost of overseas goods makes Australian products better value for money. However, if you are used to buying from overseas online stores or shopping abroad on your travels, the customer service you might have become accustomed to may outperform the Aussie retail industry.

Aussie Retailers Need to Add Value to Customer Experiences like the USA and Europe

Increasing competition from Asia and Europe are causing Australian retailers to wake up to the fact that better customer service does exist. SAP’s first-ever ‘Australian Digital Experience Report’ found that 47% (1,410 respondents) thought Australia’s biggest brands fell short compared to Asian and European equivalents. Market analysis below shows the trends that are capturing shoppers by storm elsewhere in the world, what are they and whether Aussie retailers have even noticed?
