***Money saving tip*** I just popped in to Woolies and walked out with 2 free items, worth $11.20 😍🙌🏽 So I thought I’d share the Scanning Code of Practice with you guys, because honestly it has saved me a lot of money over the years.
It’s a voluntary code that certain stores have signed up to, where if an item scans higher than what the shelf price is, the first item is free. Any subsequent identical items will be reduced to what the shelf price states. The reason I said any subsequent IDENTICAL item is because even though the stores often say it’s only the first item free (or they may just try and reduce the price to the “correct” shelf price because often the staff don’t seem to be aware of the policy), the policy specifies ‘identical’, so if the barcodes are different, due to different flavours, you can end up with multiple free items. That’s what just happened to me - two flavours = two different barcodes.
Some terms and conditions apply 😊 Make sure to check out the Scanning Code when you’re in store, it’s usually kept at the registers or the service desk. What’s the best item you guys have received free via the Code? I’ll pop some of mine in the comments 😊 - 2 days ago
