Rising prices hits Aussie households

Woolworths' Chief Commercial Officer Paul Harker said the Springtime Prices Dropped program is the supermarket's largest campaign to-date.

"Due to the higher cost of living being felt across all households in Australia, we know customers are looking for better value in their shop," Harker said.

"Over 150 of these products have a Health Star Rating of 3.5 or higher. These include key family favourites to make mealtimes easier, healthier and more affordable. We are also providing healthier choices to our customers for snacking, lunchbox and breakfast occasions."

More ways to save

Meanwhile, Woolworths is offering shoppers further savings by putting a "prize freeze" on almost 200 everyday essentials until the end of the year.

Woolworths currently offers an average of 5,000 different items on special every week across its range of pantry, household and grocery essentials.

Customers can also reduce the cost of their weekly shop by joining the Everyday Rewards program, which gives customers $10 off their shop each time they earn 2,000 points.

Everyday Rewards members can save four cents off every litre of fuel at EG and Ampol petrol stations, and earn one reward point for every dollar they spend there.
