Because paying full price for groceries really sucks.

The Fresh Food People do have some great deals, but why would you pay more than you need to? Here's how you can get a 5% discount the next time you shop at Woolworths.

The hack

Purchase a Woolworths eGift card through any of the providers listed below and you will be entitled to a discount. All you have to do is purchase the Woolworths gift card for your nominated amount, $100 for example, and you'll only be charged $95. You'll then be able to use it to do your grocery shopping and save 5% on your shop. Too easy!

Most gift cards can be emailed to you within a few hours, or 24 hours at most. You can also purchase physical gift cards but these take longer to be delivered. Both online and physical gift cards can be used to shop in-store, but keep in mind gift cards are only valid for 12 months.

Plus, remember Woolworths gift cards may also be used at BWS, Big W, Dan Murphy's, Thomas Dux, Cellarmasters and Caltex Woolworths Petrol.

Here are the providers that offer the discounts, how many gift cards you can purchase and the maximum amount of value you can purchase a gift card for:
