Coles Shopping On Ebay. Yes, that’s right. I just saved 25% off my grocery shopping today by shopping Coles on eBay. I let my fingers do the walking, saved my back carrying the heavy items and pocketed the saving. How?
Coles joins 40,000 other Australian retailers who have also made the move to trade on eBay including Myer, Target and The Good Guys.
Shoppers in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane can access Coles on eBay with products available at the same in store prices.
Coles will stock a selection of bread, fresh food items and pantry staples. However, milk, eggs and frozen food won’t feature on the eBay store just yet.
The first 5,000 shoppers to take advantage of their service will receive 25 per cent off their Coles on eBay order. Yes, I took advantage of this deal by using the code PANTRY at checkout. I ordered the staples and the heavy items I hate shopping for like cans of tomatoes and cat food (which is a staple in my home).
Naturally, shopping on eBay has its benefits too. I love that I can pay with paypal at the checkout. Ebay guarantee applies and also taking advantage of flybys and eBay PLUS.
Delivery costs I hear you ask??? As an eBay Plus member, your Coles grocery orders over $49 are delivered free. (Otherwise, it’s $10.) Coles on eBay will offer one simple unattended delivery option that will enable customers to have their order dropped off even if no-one is home. Further delivery options will be provided throughout the year.
Coles Online Chief Executive, Alister Jordan says, “We are always looking for ways to make life easier for our customers”.
“By partnering with eBay, we are providing our customers another convenient way to access our products and have them delivered straight to their door.”
Anything to save time and money whilst managing my home effortlessly is a winner in my book.
