Woolworths Everyday Rewards card: A free card with big benefits

This is just a quick post from me for Australian readers about the Woolworths Everyday Rewards card and the surprising savings that are available by using it. 

For those who are not familiar with it the Woolworths Everyday Rewards Card is a free card which allows you to link your Qantas Frequent Flyer programme to your grocery shopping as well as well as store your 'fuel credits' on a card (i.e. you do not need to keep several dockets and work out which ones to use every time you want to get discounted petrol).

What I didn't realise was that you could also get significant savings in store by using the card.  Until the 26th of June there are a range of products which are up to 20% cheaper if you have and use the card.  There is no restriction on the quantum of the relevant product that the discount applies to either.  Woolworths have said that they may continue this sort of promotion into the future with a different range of products so even if you apply for the card but do not get it until after the 26th of June, 2012 it is still worth holding onto.

It is also worth keeping track of the different promotions that get done on the card.  I had originally signed up for the card because it came with a free Qantas Freqeuent Flyer membership (normally ~$80).  The promotions they offer are very good.  Given the card is free with none of the hidden catches that we have become so wary of (I have had the card for ~3 years and have never been charged a fee) and that you can get significant savings on your grocery expenditure I think it's definitely worth signing up for.
