    Gift cards are not a supported payment method at this time

    •  

      They are, just select different payment method, pay in store and they work.

      •  

        Do you still get the 25% off?

  •  

    Not bad if there is no " premium" added to the price….

    • +2 votes

      Yes.. 10% on most items in Metro city stores, and Double Bay = Double Pay

      •  

        Double bay = double pay lol hope that’s a joke? I haven’t noticed any price inflation there but maybe I should pay more attention.

      •  

        Double Bay Woolworths is really good value. Sure the cheese room is a little on the nose … and the Black Pig Leg Ham at $25 a KG is a little $$$ (and ridiculous tastes like .. normal ham) but the prices are great .. and often better than prices in the suburbs. (As described by friends who live in the burbs but often come to DB Woolies).

  •  

    Ive shopped at Metro stores and havent noticed any price hike vs large Woolies

    • +5 votes

      I've noticed a lot of "better than half price specials"

      eg Golden Circle Crumpets $1.85 save $2.15 (was $4) compared to $1.85 save $1.85 (was $3.70)

      Or Greenseas tuna normally $2.15 compared to $2.

      There's some price hikes on certain items I think. None of the Woolies brand though.

  • +4 votes

    Metro prices have all the same specials but they do not stock everything, limited selection only. But I have found they can be really good with markdowns, i.e. $10+ salads, sandwhiches, sushi etc for between $1-$2 at the end of the day.

        ha no about 7ish they have all reduced stuff from lunchtime

  •  

    Max $50… at Metros

    •  

      **For shops over $250 in supermarkets and $50 in Metros, you will need a physical credit or debit card to complete your transaction at the Scan&Go Checkout.

      So I think potentially can still do >$50? Or will have to split up the shop.

      Someone check back in tomorrow please?

    •  

      Max payment via scan and go. Otherwise you will need a physical card. The max per shop is actually $1000! There is no limit to the number of times you shop. Read the T&Cs

      •  

        Yeah was trying to clarify if still get the 25% discount if over those caps and have to pay via card

    This seems like an insanely good deal. (25% off is huge.)

    What's the catch? There's always some catch.

        For 25% off, I'll tell them my blood type !!

    •  

      Pitt St only had two of these registers so it'll be crowded. I also noticed that some items were higher priced than compared to the George St store up the road.

      •  

        Where is George Street store Metro or Town hall?

        •  

          Yeah sorry George St = Town Hall

          •  

            @atomX: Town Hall is a normal Woolies, which is why Pitt St Mall is higher, being a Metro Woolies

            •  

              @kerfuffle: So which one is Woolworths Metro George Street?

              •  

                @SnoozeAndLose: The one at 333 George Street

                • +1 vote

                  @kerfuffle: Didn't know there is one, Woolworths really dominating supermarket in CBD compare to only 2 Coles store in the whole CBD

                  •  

                    @SnoozeAndLose: There used to be a Coles Express on King St but that closed down and yep, Woolies quickly moved in on that turf with their Pitt St Mall store (one of the things I miss most about no longer working on Pitt St Mall: that Woolies Metro)

                    •  

                      @kerfuffle: That Metro is quite small. I would go to Town Hall instead

                      •  

                        @SnoozeAndLose: That would require me to cross the road/too far. When all the shops are open, I could get from DJs (where I used to work) to Woolies Pitt St Mall without ever crossing the actual road, thanks to the walkways and tunnels

                        •  

                          @kerfuffle: I think you can use thebridge to cross the road to Myre then tunnels to town hall Woolworths too but it may take longer. Or just cross the road to the Gallery then walk toward to station and get to Woolworths within mins

                          •  

                            @SnoozeAndLose: Too long from DJs. Pitt St Mall Woolies is literally closer, no matter what you say. Trust me; I've worked there for eight years, I know all the shortcuts.

                            Now I work in Ultimo and I have to cross two roads minimum to get to Coles/Woolies. ..

      Be Guinea pigs to use woollies scan and go app. The reviews quite bad. Testers required to give improvement feedbacks.. That's how Woolworths compensate by giving 25%off 😊

      • +1 vote

        They ask for feedback - but you don't have to give it. (It's not a requirement).
        I give it as it's brilliant to walk past the shoppers queuing !!

    Is this discount only one time or running long?

      From the 4th to 30th Sep

    There's my first $600+ shop, if WA gets the offer.
    Isn't this kinda unfair?

    • +1 vote

      Woolies head office is in NSW which is why this stuff happens there and Sydney has the population to sustain multiple Metro stores. I remember being shocked at the facts that i) there's only one supermarket in Hobart CBD (nearest Coles is 2km away in Sandy Bay) and ii) there's no Woolies Metro in Adelaide CBD (although there is a full-line Coles and Woolies on Rundle Mall)

      Plus are you in SA like your profile says or WA? :p

    I've always found the Town Hall/George Street Woolworths had decent variety.

    Speaking of which had a friend from Adelaide visit me (Sydney) recently and ducked in to Woolworth's Town Hall. She was so amazed that there was an escalator in the supermarket. I just played it cool and said "Doesn't yours?".

    • +2 votes

      They have an escalator in Kmart on Rundle Mall though, which I've set to see here in Sydney …

        Ah touche, 1-1 at halftime.

          There's also an escalator in the Rundle Mall Woolworths….
          Your friend mustn't get out much.

            @miq: I thought there was! I couldn't remember

  •  

    Will check it out for lunch!

  •  

    good deal… will try today!

    Did it at 333 George this morning. Super simple. 25% off the weekly specials is fantastic.

    Now for sirena tuna to go on special this month…

    •  

      HOw many time you can use and would they give you a receipt?

      •  

        I reckon you could probably check out, and then start again immediately. I expect them to start limiting accounts though- this has loopholes written all over it.

        Receipt is sent via email.

      Did it at Mona Vale. Worked well. Got $220 worth marked down.
      Other shoppers found it a bit distracting, but liked the 25% off. We're a tight bunch on the Northern Beaches.

    This sounds pretty cool.

  • +1 vote

    Yeah pretty good but there are only six "scan & go" stores in Sydney!

    Personally being a cheapskate I mostly check the "half price items" in the Android app, select the ones I want & often the end result is %50 off so better that 25%. We use click & collect so no delivery cost. Woolworths makes little out of us!

    There are so many "half price" (often over 600 each week) but it would be so hard to do in store shopping, but then 50% plus another 25% could be great!!!

    • +2 votes

      it is 25% on top of 50% weekly special, how good is that?

      •  

        they are still profitable when its 50% off

        • +1 vote

          As of the cost price of the item, some 50% off sale is at loss but they may make money on the on shelf cost

          • +1 vote

            @SnoozeAndLose: sometimes wish they would just set a normal 30pc off price. Not going to buy stuff when I know it'll be 50% off in a few weeks.

            • +1 vote

              @silenthillrocks: but many time that people buy stuff at full price, also there Woolworths brand stuff did not have 30% profit.

              •  

                @SnoozeAndLose: So I guess the ppl who buy at full price subsidise those who wait for the sale. I didn't know they make less profit on woolies braned stuff though.

    The Scan&Go app worked well at Double Bay, but I had trouble connecting to their free WiFi. Some of the store specials didn't seem to scan with the discount applied, but it could have been due to different bar codes on similar looking products. Be sure to check that things scan in at the expected price.

    Connecting to the Woolworths Free WiFi hotspot worked fine, but it requires clicking a button on a "Sign In" website before internet access is granted, and trying to access anything redirected me to google.com which failed to load. Seems there's a DNS redirect issue somewhere in their system.

    After manually adding '.au' to the end, the Sign In page loaded, I clicked Accept, and everything worked fine.

    I tried bringing the WiFi issue up with the manager but he didn't understand the issue. I'll try again later in the week and if it's not fixed I'll email their tech support. Most people probably just use their own mobile data, but I carry a separate device with no SIM card, linked to an empty Google account, for use with apps that can potentially harvest my data.

    BTW I was burned by looking up prices online at 5am then heading to Woolies and arriving two minutes before they opened. The products I wanted appeared at half price while I was waiting for the store to open, but 6am on the dot the pages reloaded to their regular prices. Very disappointing! I was expecting a price of 50%-25% but ended up with only a 25% discount.

    I used this at Pitt St yesterday. It worked fine except for the human factor. When I tried to check out it told me that I needed staff intervention. It took about 5 minutes to find a staff member who could help. Apparently I was selected for a random audit and the staff had to scan 5 random items from my shopping, presumably to check that I had not helped myself to something I didn't scan. BTW, I passed.

    Used scan&go (free Wi-Fi) at double bay store yesterday, all working fine. Thanks a lot for sharing.

  •  

    Used today on items I needed and worked perfectly.

  • +1 vote

    Works perfectly. A bit annoying for a larger shop I would think with the fumbling around with items/phone but if you are only getting a few items it works really well. Got some good clearance specials too, fresh pizzas for $1.30 and extra 25% off :D

    •  

      For a bigger shop .. I recommend getting a second trolley and transfer from one to the other when scanning. It's the quickest way I find … (other than scanning it as you pick it up).

        how to push around 2 trolleys if you shop alone?

    Worked a treat. Not sure why people kept harping on about the Wi-Fi since it worked fine with my 5G.

    One thing to note. I have $10 WOW ready to redeem on my Everyday Rewards card but the 'Scan&Go'system does not seem to know this. It never offered me the chance to redeem them.

    •  

      It doesnt support gift cards or wow dollars.

      •  

        I can't see any reason why it doesn't support WOW dollars. The system has your WR card number.

        It does support gift cards. Worked for me.

        •  

          do you mean it accepts payment using gift cards or purchasing gift cards?

          • +1 vote

            @bargainshooter: You can pay with wish gift card. When you go to pay, you select pay in store. Then when you get to the scan and go checkout in store, you go to a kiosk who takes gift card.
