Over 750,000 Everyday Rewards members have earned on average, $100 to spend this Christmas
14 November 2023: The Christmas shopping season is set to begin for many Australian families from today, with more than $80 million banked through Everyday Rewards Bank for Christmas program.
This year, a record of over 750,000 members joined the Bank for Christmas program with an average of $100 saved, with some members saving up to $4000. This year, members have the choice to unlock their savings earlier giving them more choice and time to prepare for the festive season.
For the first time Everyday Rewards members can redeem their rewards dollars at MyDeal, an online marketplace with millions of products from the biggest brands, with great deals and discounts across a wide range of categories. Bank for Christmas dollars are also redeemable at Woolworths, BIG W, BWS, Everyday Market and participating EG Ampol locations.
Everyday Rewards General Manager, Glenn Baker said: “We know Christmas can be an expensive time of year for shoppers and Bank for Christmas is a great way for Everyday Rewards members to collect points on their everyday shops, banking the dollars for when they’re needed most.
“Many members have told us that unlocking their Bank for Christmas fund is like unwrapping an early Christmas present. This year we have unlocked the savings earlier than ever, so that shoppers can take advantage of Black Friday sales and other specials Woolworths, BWS, MyDeal and BIG W will be offering in the lead-up to Christmas.
“With members now also able to redeem their Everyday Rewards dollars at MyDeal and the introduction of ‘Member Pricing’ across Woolworths, BIG W and BWS stores, our Everyday Rewards program is delivering even more value.”
Everyday Rewards members are predicted to use their savings on everything from gifts to food for the traditional Christmasfamily lunch.
Last Christmas, thousands of festive fare products were purchased* using Everyday Rewards points banked for Christmas including:
16,000 packs of Christmas bon bons
5,200 whole chickens
