Anti-Woolworths rant goes viral

Anti-Woolworths rant goes viral

A social media rant at Woolworths' new rewards scheme has ensured one unhappy shopper has gone viral, with over 50,000 likes and nearly 5,000 shares at the time of writing.

Scott Mate posted a comment on Facebook and it soon struck a chord with a lot of fellow shoppers.

Mate wrote directly to Woolworths: "I used to love Your rewards card. Until it's so called upgrade.

"I was an average spender of $200 to $300pw for the basic fact I'd get weekly bonuses of $20 to $30 on my purchases to be spent on my next shop or some random midweek items.

"I've had the new upgraded "REWARDS" for now a few weeks and have earned a whopping accumulation saving of $4.80 on an amount of shopping in excess of $1000.00.... ( previous returns of 80+ dollars.)

"Sadly your little orange tag sales items ( That the new card now totally depends on) just don't cut it, cause they're now less common than hens teeth, unicorn horns and rocking horse poop."

Mate added: "You have opened up my eyes, enabling me to shop smarter and take my regular business to the local butcher and fruit and veggie bloke.

"Ok, end rant, gotta run, need milk and bread and Coles is just around the corner too."
