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.

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.

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.

This cheap coffee can be bought via Coles’ new convenience offering which you may know as the ‘Big Yum at Little Coles’.

Posted by on June 25, 2016 at 8:31 AM

Talk about national embarrassment, Woolworths have only just released their new loyalty programme when it once again gets dropped like a lead balloon. So badly so that they are now having to reconsider their entire stance. The latest iteration of their loyalty program cost the company €500 million to deploy and so far its looking like a huge waste of money.

Woolworths Re work Their Loyalty Program Only 8 Months Are New Release

Woolworths is now planning to give the scheme a makeover including revisions on how to make it more attractive to grocery suppliers in efforts to slow it’s struggles. As I currently understand things, over the coming months Woolies will broaden the ranges of products to customers so that they can earn more ‘Woolworths Dollars’.

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.

Supermarket Prices Continue to Drop as ALDI Forecast $15 Billion Turnover

Posted by on April 22, 2016 at 8:19 AM

The supermarket wars are heating up again as the titans of the industry see their empires crumble slowly from beneath them as underdog ALDI continues to ramp up its services. In recent months, Coles and Woolworths have begun aggressively dropping their prices to lure customers away from one another. But whilst they try to stop customers leaving to ALDI, customers continue to search for cheaper prices.

Supermarket Prices Continue to Drop as ALDI Forecast $15 Billion Turnover

A wide variety of selected product categories have already been reduced at the large chains and saving money at the supermarket has certainly become easier. At this stage it seems very likely that as Coles and Woolworths try to compete with ALDI, customers can likely expect to see more heavily discounted prices appearing across the board as time goes on.

Save Money with Woolworth’s New Product Price Drop

Posted by on April 20, 2016 at 8:40 AM

Woolworths have been coming under fire from all angles recently with Aldi taking the market by storm and Coles playing the price game very aggressively too. Despite Woolies revamping its rewards program recently to now include Qantas points, many customers are still disgruntled by the fact that discounts are only provided on selected products.

Save Money with Woolworths New Product Price Drop

However, as of today they have changed tact by slashing the prices of everyday products which it considers to be Australian grocery staples. The chain will focus on one category per week for the coming month. If you haven’t shopped at Woolworths in a while, then it could be a money saving exercise to do so whilst these discounts are active.

Woolworth’s Brings Back Qantas Points to Loyalty Scheme

Posted by on April 13, 2016 at 8:23 AM

Qantas points are back and Woolworths is beginning its roll out of the long awaited (and missed) points scheme. A decision that previously saw the supermarket lose a chunk of customers could now reverse that cycle, or so Woolworths hope. Customers who used to enjoy saving money on flights by shopping at their local supermarket became disgruntled when the chain stopped offering Qantas points last year. In December however, the food retailer decided to bring the scheme back under a new three-year deal.

Woolworths Brings Back Qantas Points to Loyalty Scheme

Customers will now have the choice to convert 10 Woolworths Dollars earned via the purchase of orange-ticketed items, into 870 Qantas points. This information was sent out to a select number of the supermarket’s rewards program mailing list over the weekend, but how will this change affect the chain’s struggling market position?

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.

Woolworth’s New Commute Shopping Service Could Make Grocery Shopping a Whole Lot Easier

Posted by on February 11, 2016 at 8:28 AM

Woolworth’s latest grocery service could save you loads of time and money, not to mention stress. The weekly shop can be an especially frustrating chore, kicking in as soon as you arrive at the supermarket and can’t find a parking space. Traffic jams, dodging slow trolleys in the aisles and then having to queue at the checkout till are enough to make even the most patient of us flip out sometimes.

Woolworths New Commute Shopping Service Could Make Grocery Shopping a Whole Lot Easier

Woolies are hoping to ease this burden, however, with a new trial grocery service where the groceries you purchase online are made available to you at the train station on your way home from work. I’ve personally not heard of a service that adds that much value for money and can eradicate a stressful weekly shop. So how are the trials going and is this something that you would like to have in your train station?
