First its Select range of products and now the humble plastic bag! It's political correctness gone mad I tells ya! Except, you know, it's not. Woolworths had decided to do what's best for the environment and by June 20, it'll have killed off single-use plastic bags in all of its stores.
Last year, one of the best Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-order deals came from an unlikely source: Woolworths Mobile. The company best known for cheap groceries and $2 milk managed to beat every Australian telco on price and data. Now it's looking to do it again with the Galaxy S9.
The hot cross bun. Once a decadent indulgence that appeared on store shelves only a few weeks before Easter. Now an almost half yearly sweet, yeasty snack available the day after Christmas. Yes, that's correct.
Hot cross buns are already available at Coles and Woolworths around Australia.
Self service checkouts are a great invention. Sure, they may have taken a few jobs away but gone are the days where you have to make idle chit-chat with a not so fresh-faced teen while they slipped groceries into a planet-destroying plastic bag. Now, you can do it all yourself! Scan, bag, pay and leave.
Which means the system is rife for exploitation.
Dear Lifehacker, I will be in Spain, France and Italy for five weeks starting May 1 with my iPad Air (iOS 9.3 ). My iPad has no sim installed but can take one. What do you recommend as to a sim to buy? I need to access email, and suss out local info maps, timetables etc as we go around. NO Skype or movie music downloads.
We've already looked at the best Samsung Galaxy S8 plans from each Australian telco. Now, Woolies has pulled a rabbit out of its hat with a new plan boasting 12GB of data for $92 a month. If you require more than 10GB of data, this is the best deal we've seen from any telco so far. Read on for the details.
Amazon's Australian rollout plans have just been laid out by a former executive of the company - and we finally have a launch date. From next year, Australians will reportedly be able to use the online shopping service to purchase a huge variety of products, including groceries, clothing, electronics and even takeaway food. Here are all the services Australia will be getting: from fresh food delivery to Amazon Prime Now.
Mince is a good source of iron, but you probably don't want to ingest additional metals with your spag bol. Woolworths has recalled its Australian pork, lamb and beef mince from one of its stores due to a packaging fault resulting in the presence of dangerous metal fragments that "may cause injury if consumed".
Who doesn't love to get something for nothing? That's the basic premise for retail rewards cards and supermarket giant Woolworths has stepped up the game in this department. It has unveiled a new rewards card program that gives out more points and more bonus goodies in a bid to compete with its biggest rival Coles. So which program gives you more? Here's a side-by-side comparison of the two supermarket rewards programs.
A few months ago, Woolworths decided to replace its entry-level Homebrand range with the similar "Woolworths Essentials" in a bid to address consumer perceptions of low quality. Now, it's giving the same treatment to the mid-tier Select label. The only reason to care about this is that Woolworths' private label products will soon be cheaper.
The history of the dairy cooperative Murray Goulburn and its farmer suppliers shows how a close relationship of trust has developed and been broken with the collapse of the farmgate milk price. Roots of the current crisis can be traced all the way back to the deregulation of the dairy industry at the start of the century.
It's every kid's dream come true and every arachnophobe's worst nightmare: Woolworths stores in NSW and Queensland are removing broccoli from sale following the discovery of redback spiders hidden inside the vegetables. In at least three separate incidents, customers spotted the venomous spiders nestled in florets, with one sharing the image on social media. In response, the grocery chain has ceased accepting produce from three suppliers.
Supermarket giant Woolworths has announced plans to offer free food to children, completely catch-free. Under a new national program, kids will be able to pick up fresh seasonal fruits and start munching away while their parents shop. Items on the menu include mandarins, apples, pears and bananas sourced from local farmers and suppliers. Not bad. Not bad at all.
Five years ago, I undertook the Mastercheap challenge: trying to eat a healthy (enough) diet with a weekly budget of $25 and an entirely empty pantry. Would that still be possible in 2015 -- and which supermarket would offer the best deal? Let's find out.
If speculation that German discount supermarket, Lidl, is preparing to launch into the Australian market is correct, it will be the biggest shake up in the grocery sector since Aldi's arrival in 2001. With potentially five viable combatants in the mix, the way we shop and how supermarkets and suppliers compete, will fundamentally change.
Woolworths hasn't wasted any time since announcing its intention to re-enter the mobile market last month: the new Woolworths Connect plans (using Telstra's older and slower 3G network) go on sale from next Monday. Here's what's on offer and how they compare (hint: you can still do better).
We're constantly bombarded with advertising for supermarket specials, but is any one chain consistently cheaper than the others? A new investigation by consumer advocate CHOICE suggests not -- and highlights again how much more we pay for brand-name goods rather than house brand alternatives.
