Let me cut to the chase: I save $1,500 a year with the Reward Gateway discounts program – that’s $1,500 back into my pocket, every year.
What’s even better is that I work with business leaders all year-round who help their people do the same thing.
For employees, it’s unreal, because it’s an awesome benefit that delivers heaps of value on a weekly basis (I’ll show you how I use it below).
For employers, it’s amazing, too – it’s an effective way to provide an amazing benefit with huge value to each employee without blowing the wage-increase budget out.
So, it’s a fantastic win-win. And, it’s even more relevant and important right now as Australians are faced with the rising cost of living, inflation and in a talent market that’s very tight.
Here’s how it works for me:
Week-to-week – my regular weekly purchases are pretty basic. I buy groceries, meals, put petrol in my car and I’ll maybe get takeaway one night a week too.
Discount Partners: Coles, Woolworths, Ampol/Caltex, BWS, Marley Spoon, UberEats.
Savings: $546 per year (approximately $200 per week at Coles and Woolworths and $50 per week at Ampol)
Every-now-and-then – Sometimes, I save on my car and health insurance, and phone bill. I’ll go out for dinner once or twice a month and save 8-10% off at my favourite restaurants – and I’ll probably watch a movie too where I gave save 25% on Gold Class/LUX or normal movie tickets Most months, I’ll also likely indulge in a little bit of online shopping.
Discount Partners: Medibank, Youi, Telstra, Best Restaurants, Event Cinemas, The Iconic, Myer, ASOS, Farftech, Hoyts
Savings: $600 per year.
Special occasions – I just got back from South America and Europe during my sabbatical, so I obviously saved a lot on hotels, and travel this year. But, I might squeeze in another few weekends away at some point when I need to get away. On the home front, there’s usually a new piece of furniture from Ikea or Temple and Webster or an appliance I have to fork out for every year. And, of course, the big spending push – Christmas.
Discount Partners: Booking.com, Airbnb, Wotif, Europcar, Webjet, The Good Guys, Myer, Ikea, Kmart, Target, BigW.
Savings: $400 per year.
