For some time Woolworths Metro has run a promotion offering a free coffee for any single spend of over $30. If your shop qualified, a bar code would print on the docket, with:
“Spend $30, receive one free coffee
Valid until 01/01/24
Available from selected Woolworths Metro stores only.”
I’ve been staying with my daughter this week, because she’s been unwell. She’s accumulated a bunch of these dockets so that I can grab a coffee from the Metro next door when I stay. Today, I went to collect one, having grabbed them since Saturday, only to be told “We’re no longer accepting dockets, you have to use the app now. They changed it a couple of days ago.”
I pointed out that the docket made no reference to any other terms and conditions, so she made me a coffee anyway, but it’s pretty dodgy, albeit a small beer “first world problem”.
I don’t load apps like these on my phone…They’re just not trustworthy enough.
On the other hand, If I’m going to pay $4+ for a coffee, I’ll walk to a cafe and hopefully get better coffee. Metro’s coffee is OK, but not worth paying full cafe prices for.
