During the busy Christmas season and the sudden spike in shopping trends, everybody is out to look for a bargain wherever they can get one.
This season, Woolworths Rewards (WRewards) members are in luck, as you can score a R50 discount off clothing purchases to the value of R250 or more.
As a WRewards member myself, I was pleasantly surprised to get an SMS issuing me with a voucher number, making me liable for the great discount. This came just at the right time, as Christmas time is always perfect to cash in on those discounts to get gifts, buy some last minute goods or even just to treat yourself.
SMS vouchers are a great way of issuing vouchers and helps to reduce the risk of voucher loss and theft. When a customer receives a SMS voucher, they will need to present the SMS at the preferred shopping centre or retailer, in this case, Woolworths, where the voucher can then be redeemed directly from the SMS. Many banks are using these kinds of vouchers for their rewards programmes like Absa Rewards, FNB eBucks and others as well as retailers like Sportsmans Warehouse, Woolworths and Makro to name just a few. They have all moved with the times and have become technologically savvy in issuing these kinds of vouchers.
So off I went to my nearest Woolworths store, excited to purchase my goods and reap the benefits of my R50 discount on any clothing items, except for the Country Road and Trenery brands.
I must commend the staff at the Woolworths branch who were very friendly and helpful to answering any questions I had to ask about the discount voucher, from whether or not it qualified to both adult and children clothing purchases, underwear and the likes, which it did apply to.
After gathering all my wanted purchases, I headed to the till where the cashier rung up all my items and swiped my WRewards card, allowing me to, on top of my discount, gain rewards on my purchases. She then requested for my SMS voucher number that was sent to me. After entering the number into the system, automatically R50 was deducted off my total amount, leaving me happy and saving some on my buy.
Christmas is the time for giving and Woolworths have remained true to just that by rewarding their WRewards clients. If the Christmas spirit alone isn’t enough to have you feeling happy, redeem your Woolies R50 discount and add that little bit of extra cheer to your season.
*The WRewards discount is only valid until 14 December 2013 and includes all clothing purchases except for the Trenery and Country Road brands.
