“Umm so just had my groceries delivered and this was inside one of the bags...what a pleasant surprise, thanks Woolworths,” one delighted shopper wrote in the Facebook group Markdown Addicts Australia.
She’s far from the only one to find the unexpected gift in her groceries delivery.
“Wow thanks so much #Woolworths for the surprise inclusion of the Google Home Mini with my grocery delivery. I just need to see if it can do the housework for me,” influencer Bec Derrington wrote earlier this year.
Receipts confirm that there are no strings attached to the freebie – but it seems there’s something in it for Woolies too.
“With a Google Home, customers can add items to their Woolworths shopping list via voice as and when they think of items around the house,” a Woolworths spokesperson told Yahoo Finance.
“To get started, customers can simply ask their Google Home Mini ‘Ok Google, speak to Woolies.’
“From time to time, we like to send Google Home Minis with home deliveries to online customers as a gift with purchase."
