Kaufland a Weird Aldi Style Discount Store Is Coming to Australia

Posted by on March 20, 2017 at 8:29 AM

None of you may have heard of Kaufland before, but we wouldn’t blame you either because it’s big in places like Bulgaria and other eastern European countries. The big supermarket chain has announced that it is coming to Australia, its first English speaking country to date.

Kaufland a Weird Aldi Style Discount Store Is Coming to Australia

Kaufland stores are different to those of Aldi because they are usually 20,000 square meters in size, that’s 15 times larger than Aldi and five times larger than a big Coles or Woolworths. The large discount store is known for cheap money saving deals and discounts, holding roughly 40,000 items compared to Aldi’s 1,300 different products.

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.

Coles and 7-Eleven Battle for Convenience with the Cheapest Coffee

Posted by on August 10, 2016 at 8:16 AM

7-Eleven has been known recently to be selling one of the cheapest coffees that can be bought in Australia for $1. If you like your coffee in the morning to kick start your day then buying from the chain is certainly the cheapest way to do it, or so that was the case until Coles begun selling cheaper coffee at 0.80¢. Coles has launched its own revamped convenience store format in response.

 Coles and 7 Eleven Battle for Convenience with the Cheapest Coffee

This cheap coffee can be bought via Coles’ new convenience offering which you may know as the ‘Big Yum at Little Coles’. This cheap coffee can be bought currently at three Melbourne service stations in Kew, Windsor and South Yarra. Besides the cheap coffee, you can also pick up heavily reduced items such as bananas, wraps, handmade sandwiches, sushi, salads and other ready-made meals to help save money on those busy work days.

How Much Is Your Private Data worth to Coles and Woolworths Through Their Loyalty Programs

Posted by on July 18, 2016 at 8:21 AM

Coles and Woolworths are notorious for collecting data on their customer’s shopping habits, but you would have thought that this data would have at least stayed within Australia. Wrong. Some of that data is being sent as far as South Africa and the Philippines. The main culprits for collecting data is Coles’ Flybuys and Woolworth’s Rewards programs which recently have been cautioned for sending shopper’s information abroad, discovered by Australia’s privacy watchdog.

How Much Is Your Private Data worth to Coles and Woolworths Through Their Loyalty Programs

You’ll be happy to hear though that the privacy check ups didn’t reveal mishandling of customer data, but we all know the saying “nothing in life is free”. If this comes as a shock, perhaps you didn’t read the privacy policies because both Coles’ and Woolies’ programs make their data sharing practices clear in accordance with the Privacy Act. What I wanted to find out though, was how exactly are these companies using our data?

Woolworths Promises Bigger Discounts in Massive Pricing Overhaul

Posted by on May 12, 2016 at 8:29 AM

Woolworths has bee struggling recently due to heightened competition from Coles and ALDI causing their sales to continue to decrease. In an attempt to prevent the haemorrhaging of sales, the supermarket is planning on doing a complete overhaul of its pricing to bring its products in line with competitors.

Woolworths Promises Bigger Discounts in Massive Pricing Overhaul

Brad Banducci, the chief executive of Woolies made an announcement that the group will be restructuring after a drop in sales of 0.3% in the third quarter, during which time both ALDI and Coles experienced growth. This has resulted in Woolies pumping $150 million into reducing prices, which only means that customers may be able to save more money shopping with them in the coming months.

Large Retailers Threaten to Raise Prices Spiting Customers and Government

Posted by on March 30, 2016 at 8:00 AM

Malcolm Turnbull could be the culprit for forcing large retail chains such as Coles, Woolworths and other big firms to raise their prices at the detriment of consumers across the country. The reason for these price increases is as a result of Federal Government changes to competition laws designed to protect smaller businesses.

Large Retailers Threaten to Raise Prices Spiting Customers and Government

 

The Federal Government is increasing its efforts to minimise the market power of the bigger players. The Cabinet signed off on the ‘effects test’ this week and on Wednesday 16th March the coalition party room was briefed on the new legislation. The funny thing is that previously Mr Turnbull argued against this motion saying, ‘yet again my government taking long overdue reforms out of the too-hard basket.’ So how will this change affect Australian shoppers?

Shopping in Australia – The Savvy Savers Guide to the Supermarket Shop

Posted by on September 16, 2014 at 8:13 AM

Thousands of Aussies could be out of pocket by hundreds of dollars every week, simply by ignoring supermarket unit prices. As we have referred to in the past, shopping is a big part of our lives, especially food shopping. We are going to show you how to save money when buying groceries, but if your on your way out the door now, check out some of our deals here.

Shopping in Australia – The Savvy Savers Guide to the Supermarket Shop

So what is unit price? Introduced in 2009, a new labelling system was applied to all products sold in retail supermarkets to help customers distinguish the difference in price between products. It is not mandatory for all shops and retailers to do this, but only ones over a certain size. A unit price is typically displayed as; per item, kilogram, 100 millilitres, 10 grams or 100 grams.

An example of this would be: Woolworths selling a pack of 6 beers for $6.49, they must also display the unit price per beer of $1.08.

We have a gentleman Ian Jarratt to thank for leading the campaign against supermarkets to change their display policy, to show unit pricing in Australia. Thanks to him, many people now have the ability to save money, but he reportedly told an Australian news channel, consumers largely still remain unaware of the unit price. However this is only due to the supermarkets not educating us.    Read the rest of this entry »

Lindt Excellence Chocolates $1.88 @ Coles

Posted by on June 5, 2013 at 9:23 AM

Coles has reduced bars of 100g Lindt Excellence chocolate to $1.88 reduced from $3.77, offering you $1.89 off per bar. For ‘regular’ chocolate that might not seem awesome, but for Lindt? Well, it is just a cut above the rest, quite frankly, so I think this is a fabulous offer!

Lindt Excellence Chocolates $1.88 @ ColesI walked into a store in Germany once, looking for some chocolate, and was shocked at the hundreds of flavour combinations Lindt comes, in, but alas, here we have only five options to choose from, most of the time. My favourite is the 80% cocoa, but you can also go for the lighter flavours.

The brochure says this offer starts at 7am today, 5 June, but some places seem to be selling at that price already. Remember chocolate does go off and get worms in it, so don’t go overboard, but nothing wrong with keeping a few bars in the fridge.

Woolworths is selling the same stuff for $4.88, and over $6 at the German shop.

Click and collect is free of charge, and home delivery is around $7 – $10 depending on your area and when you schedule delivery for.
