Our Top 3 Tips for Saving Money on Food and Drinks in Australia
Check out their Rewards Program
Almost every major food and drink retailer, such as Coles and Woolworths, have a Rewards program that is free to join. Considering you're never going to stop needing food, why not get some points and save a little money while doing so? It takes two minutes to do, and the average rate is around one to three points per $1 spent. Depending on the program, you can either get discounts of food bills, or even get brand new products absolutely free!
Buy Fruits, Veg, etc. During their Peak Growing Season
Even though we sometimes feel Australia has generally nice weather all year round, it doesn't mean the ground agrees. Certain produce has to be grown at very specific temperatures and in very particular conditions. Farmers know this and grow as many of them as they possible can in a given period of time. This causes the particular produce to be much cheaper since it's not hard to come by.
However, once produce is out of it's peak growing season, the price will start to increase because it's harder to get. So buy when it's in high supply!
Take Time to Browse their Catalogue
We know some catalogues can be hard to read, but there are some deals in their that lots of retailers won't post on their front page on in their newsletter. The deals are obviously limited to a product-by-product basis, but if you're looking for a deal on something particular, it doesn't hurt to give it a quick glance.
