During one spirited debate on the Budgeting, Food, Stockpiling, Savings Ideas, Life Help Australia Facebook page, it was clear to see that tensions were showing no sign of wavering.
Criticising the promotion, one wrote: ‘They’re not free u have to spend like 20 bucks to get one ... I'd rather much have the cash at the end of it but whatever floats ur boat.’ Said another: ‘It’s not free it cost $20 per point.’
Fans of the promotion fired up, defending Coles. ‘It's free because you're shopping there anyway, you're just accumulating credits as you shop. Grow up!!’ Said another: ‘What do u mean u would rather have the cash at the end of it? Do u not go grocery shopping? If u cn eat for completely free plz tell me ur secret. I do my weekly shop at Coles and so i accumulate points for these containers aswell as points that eventually add up to flybuys dollars. When I have enough points for a container I scan the container aswell as my flybuys card and the price is changed to $0.00. I just don't understand how u think u have to pay for the containers.’
Said a third: ‘OMG they are free, because you still get all the other groceries for the money you spend... that does not mean the container costs you money.’
And it seems the dispute wasn’t lost on other members. Said one: ‘All these negative nancies remind me why I don’t post in groups.’ Said another: ‘So much negativity for some bloody FREE Tupperware lol.’
But there were plenty of people revealing how the containers were a big win in their books.
Said one: ‘We’re loving the containers! We always shop at Coles so it’s a nice bonus.’ Said another: ‘The containers a great quality, I’m hoping we get the whole set!’
