Woolworths offers five per cent discount to NSW Seniors Card holders

Posted by Nicholas Nakos on 18th October 2017

Woolworths will now be giving NSW Seniors Card holders five per cent off its WISH eGift cards as part of a NSW Government initiative.

The partnership with the NSW Government aims to provide cheaper groceries to the state’s seniors population.

The WISH eGift cards can be redeemed online or at Woolworths stores, BIG W, BWS, Dan Murphy’s and Cellarmasters.

“As a government we are committed to driving down the cost of living, especially for seniors, who contribute so much to our communities,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.

Discount on delivery

A 25 per cent discount on a mid-week grocery delivery has also been offered as part of the partnership.

“Our seniors customers told us that they are struggling with heavy and bulky items,” Woolworths Chief Customer Transformation Officer Natalie Davis said.

“We listened and created a discount on our mid-week delivery saver with this group in mind,” Davis said.

The delivery saver pass offers three months of midweek delivery for only $30, a saving of $10 from the regular price of $40.

NSW Seniors set to save

“We want to make it as easy as possible for seniors to access fresh food and other essential items,” NSW Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies said.

The initiative could save the average senior customer, who spends $90 a week on groceries, approximately $200 a year.

The discounts can be accessed through the NSW Seniors Card website or by calling 13 77 88.
