That is only a ½ % discount, virtually nothing, with the above-mentioned family receiving only a $1-50 discount on their weekly shop, which averages around $300. However, Woolies regularly offer double and triple points for limited shopping periods.
They also offer up to 250 points on selected products.
As a rewards card holder, I receive weekly emails on specials. My case study listed 35 items on special during the weekly promotional period.
The normal price of the 35 items listed was approximately $210-00.
If you purchased all the specials you would save approximately $62-00.
The one area of shopping I don't normally buy specials from is the fruit and vegetable section. If you intend to use the product within a couple of days you will save, although it may be a guide to what to cook for dinner that night.
