It’s the shopping bombshell that rocked the country - the revelation that Coles shoppers could pick up a FREE hot chook voucher if the supermarket had none left on display.
The secret policy came to light in January, with savvy bargain hunters pointing out a little-known sticker on Coles’ hot chicken counters which states that if there were none on display then shoppers were entitled to receive a voucher for a free chook on their next visit.
Well now one savvy shopper has taken to Facebook to reveal her simple trick for scoring a free Coles hot chook voucher - and ANYONE can do it.
Posting on the awesome Markdown Addicts Australia page, shopper Michelle revealed how if she sees that BBQ chicken stocks are low, she simply does some other shopping first before heading back to the hot chook display - in the hope that they’ve run out and she scores a free voucher!
She writes: ‘Is it bad, I did a lap of the store, when I noticed they only had 1 chicken left........😮🤣
Michelle adds: ‘I parked my car, walked into the store, the woman in front of me was looking at the last chicken so I went to the deli and bought my ham, I went back and found yes she had taken it. I then asked did they have more coming out, I was told "no, but I'll give you a voucher" - I didn't ask, it was offered.’
Many fellow Markdown Addicts went on to admit that they’ve done the same thing - while others commended Michelle on her ingenuity.
‘I’ve done this!’ wrote one. Added another: ‘Done this too!’
Added a this: ‘Why have I never thought of this 🤣 bloody genius!’ Said one more: ‘I think you are BRILLIANT, I would never have thought to do that. But I will now, thank you!’
Michelle went on to add her sweet motive behind looking out for Coles hot chook vouchers.
‘I get a voucher every time I can, which I then give to the older couple who live next door. [I] also prepare other meals for them on a weekly basis, every little thing helps them stay in there home longer.’
Another follower replied: ‘Beautiful Sentiment the world needs more people like you.’
