Woolworths shopper wows with kind gesture: 'That’s beautiful'

Everyday Rewards members have been inspired by one woman's generous act.

A Woolworths customer has offered up an incredibly kind gesture to those in need after racking up dozens of free Everyday Rewards points. The South Australian shopper shared her idea on Facebook, saying she'd found a way to use up her extra Woolworths Tableware credits without letting them go to waste.

"Today I used my 250 tableware credits to obtain bowls and plates which I then donated to charity," she wrote. "Much better than not utilising it at all and it felt really great to help those less fortunate."

The woman's huge points haul was the equivalent of six sets of plates and bowls worth a total of $250. Her post was met with praise from others who loved the idea of not letting the credits go to waste while helping those less fortunate.

"Such a beautiful gesture. It really does feel good to do nice things for others," one shopper commented.

Some Everyday Rewards members said the "incredibly kind-hearted" gesture inspired them to do the same.

"I only have enough to redeem a few items and don't need one more plate, bowl, glassware or cutlery as I have enough. Seeing this I will donate too. Thank you," one member commented.


"I donated all mine to charity too," someone else commented, with another adding, "I've been saving up what I've collected to do the same. I have no use for them, so surely there is someone very deserving out there that can make use of them."
