Woolworths has been an Australian household name for years, and with a comprehensive range of products available, there are few things that you can't find at this popular retailer.
With the expansion of online shopping facilities almost the entire Woolworths range is available for purchase and delivery straight to your front door, and in this guide, we'll show you how to make the most of shopping online at Woolworths.
Woolworths Online Shopping
Shopping for groceries has never been easier and more convenient than it is now. Woolworths Online takes the fuss and bother out of shopping in-store, and allows you to peruse aisles and investigate products without having to take your slippers off! That's convenient!

You won't pay more for products online
Woolworths promise that you won't pay any more for an online item than you would in-store, with the exception of store-only or state-based promotions. So, you can go ahead and order your diary, meat and frozen products online; it won't cost you any more than usual, and it's guaranteed to be the same quality you'd expect in-store.
Woolworths "Bundles" for easy ordering
Woolworths have put together various shopping to help online customers customers get what they need - and fast! Items that are often purchased together or in bulk are bundled together for a quicker checkout, and ease of re-ordering. Examples include Baby BundlesDinner Bundles and Household Bundles.

Not Home When Groceries Are Delivered? No Problem!
If you are unsure if you will be home at the exact time of delivery, you can approve your order being left "unattended” by checking a box in the delivery options online. Woolworths staff will follow your instructions and leave your groceries in a suitable spot such as the front door, or reception as requested by you. If you have ordered cold items that require refrigeration, the Woolworths staff will even pack your groceries into a cooler box if you leave one in your designated delivery point.
Woolworths weekly specials commence on a Wednesday, and wrap up at midnight on the following Tuesday. Shoppers are able to view new weekly catalogues online from Monday.
Specials always include not only percentage-off discounts on numerous grocery items, but a number of half-price products - and these are the ones most of us make a beeline for!
How To Find Half-Price Specials Online:
Woolworths know that this is a popular category for shoppers, and makes it very easy to find all half-price products in one place. Simply head to Woolworths Online, select the yellow "Specials" tab, and click on Half-Price Specials. Once there, you can filter your specials into categories for easier shopping.
Woolworths Rewards is one of the most popular loyalty programs in Australia, giving shoppers the ability to earn rewards in the form of dollar-off discounts, Qantas Frequent Flyer points, and discounted fuel.
As a general rule, shoppers earn one Woolworths Reward point with every dollar spent at Woolworths stores/Woolworths Online, BWS, Big W and Caltex outlets, however there are often opportunities to earn even more points on select products each week.
Once your Woolworths Reward balance reaches 2000 points, you receive either $10 off your next shop, or 870 Frequent Flyer points, depending upon your account selections. You can also choose to "bank" your accumulated dollars until the Christmas period.
With every $30 spend, four-cent discount fuel vouchers are added to your account, to be redeemed at participating Caltex outlets when you scan your card.
