This little-known Woolworths hack will cut your checkout time every time – and there’s no catch

  • Woolworths shoppers can now save time at checkout by using a phone app
  • Shoppers can simply add their credit card to the free Everyday Rewards app
  • To pay, simply scan the QR code at the self-service checkout and scan the items
  • Then click the “pay now” button to instantly pay in one seamless transaction
  • This follows Woolworths’ introduction of the ‘Scan & Go’ feature in 49 stores

Australian shoppers can now save time at the Woolworths checkout by using a new way of paying for groceries that few are familiar with.

Using the Everyday Rewards app, customers can scan their card and pay in one seamless transaction using a saved card.

To pay, simply scan the QR code at the self-checkout, scan the items, then select “Pay Now” to pay instantly.

The technology will save customers time by shuffling their cards while standing at the checkout.

To add your bank card to the Everyday Rewards app, simply tap the ‘card’ button at the bottom of the screen and then the ‘+’ button.

Fill in your details and follow the instructions to quickly add your card.

Customers can also add gift cards to the app to redeem in the same way, making checkout quick and convenient.

Using the app, shoppers can also track their Everyday Rewards points, as $10 will be received for every 2000 points collected.

The app can be used while shopping in-store at Woolworths, BWS, Big W and Dan Murphy’s.

The app uses a verification system called 3DS that helps authenticate a cardholder with their bank to protect against potential fraud.

It follows that the supermarket giant has introduced the new ‘Scan & Go’ service to 49 stores in Australia.

Sydney finance guru Queenie Tan, 26, has tried out the new feature which allows customers to scan their items when shopping and avoid queuing in long queues at checkout.

In the short clip, she demonstrated how it works and called the new technology “life changing”.

‘You have to try this Woolies hack!’ Queenie said in a short clip.

‘Just open the Woolworths app and click on settings [then] Scan and go.’

In a TikTok video, Queenie can be seen browsing the aisles and buying desired products, explaining how once the item is scanned, it can be placed in your bag.

“You’ll see how much it will cost and how many items you have,” Queenie said, adding, “I don’t need to be shocked at the counter anymore!”

To scan fruits and vegetables that do not have a barcode, simply place the item on the scale and then scan the barcode that appears.

‘The scale knows atomically what [food] it is. It’s like magic,” Queenie joked.

“When you’re done shopping you can head to the Scan & Go counter and the best part is there’s no queuing and your food is already in your shopping bags.

“So all you have to do is pay and go!”
