Coles Team Member Card - Ad-hoc Special Discounts

With some 30,000+ employees across Australia, most of us will know someone who works for Coles/Target/Officeworks/Liquorland/Coles Express etc.

All Coles employees are given a "Team Member Discount Card" that provides them with a general 5% discount (across all but the Coles Express service stations).

Occasionally (without much prior notice) this discount is doubled for a few days to 10%, or special discounts applied to certain liquor items, which can create some decent bargains, especially on PS3's/Xbox's and other higher priced items which rarely differ much in price between competitors.

As the notice about such extra discount programs is usually only posted internally, most people miss the opportunity because by the time they see the notice, it's over.

So I thought I'd create a thread where I can post updates when I see the discount is running.

    I just got a staff email through advising that Coles will be doubling the staff discount to 10% from 12th December to 24 December at Coles, Bi-Lo, Pick'n'Pay, Liquorland and Vintage Cellars. Good for stocking up on snacks and booze before Xmas.

    Looks like they're rolling out the discounts this week:

    Target - Staff discount doubled to 10% off hard homewares, nursery, toys, and general merchandise from Thurs 8th December to 24th December

    Coles Supermarket - 20% off the whole range of Mix clothing when discount card presented at checkout up until 18th December. See www.mixapparel.com.au to view the range

    Just ask and you can get it early.

    •  

      Thanks. It would come in handy B4 Xmas.

        It's usually every 6 months. You won't get it before Christmas and they can't just print one out for you as they're delivered in batches/cycles. You're best off asking someone you work with if you can just borrow their card.

    any one know if the targer 10% can be use on electronics like PS3 n xbox?

    •  

      Normally they do a 10% discount across the board which would includes games and electronics, but this time it's just the following:
      Hard homewares: Home decorator, lighting, kitchenware, home storage, tableware

      General Merch: toiletries, cosmetics, fragrance, bath and body, season confectionery, Christmas, stationery, cards and wrap.

      Nursery and Toys.

      You could try and argue that a PS3 or Xbox is a toy, but I don't know how you'd fare. :)

        lmao. have u seen that staff at target? im not sure how succesful i will be. i would be nice if i could get 10% of some consoles thou :D

        •  

          Nothing has come through so far for Kmart, but I'd be surprised if they don't come up with something next week. I'll keep an eye out and post up if it does come through on email.

      •  

        Ha you could argue about it. But if i were a Coles member i wouldn't be arguing about your own companies genorosity {sp?).

  •  

    Do Coles team members get a higher discount I store than say Officeworks?
    Officeworks Discount for employees is 20% or Cost year round at Officeworks, any store.
