How Australians can slash their grocery bill by hundreds of dollars a month by using new app

Australians can slash hundreds of dollars off their grocery bill by using a new app that lets you scan the major supermarkets for the best deals.

The app offers shoppers the chance to compare the prices of about 45,000 products from Coles, Woolworths and Aldi at the same time.

GroceryGetter customers can then select the cheapest items from each supermarket and have their groceries home delivered.

‘You build a shopping list on the app with the groceries you’d like to purchase,’ co-creator Shawn Singh told A Current Affair.

The GroceryGetter app and its website are free to use but there is a $9.99 delivery fee and Aldi products also attract a 20 per cent surcharge.

The next-day delivery service is currently only available in Sydney but it will soon be extended to Melbourne and Canberra.

GroceryGetter was launched last year ‘with a vision to revolutionise the Australian grocery shopping experience’.

HOW IT WORKS

– GroceryGetter has its own website and it is also available on the App Store and Android Store

– Shoppers can compare prices on about 45,000 items from Coles, Woolworths and Aldi

– GroceryGetter says it ‘obtains the pricing for you so you don’t need to’ and customers ‘see who’s got the better pricing, side by side’

– Customers can create their ‘own shopping lists and track the live prices and savings every week’

– GroceryGetter offers next-day delivery to more than 700 suburbs in Sydney

‘Flipping through multiple catalogues to find the cheapest deal, lugging heavy items, and long queues are just some of the stressors that GroceryGetter eliminates,’ the GroceryGetter website says.

‘Create your own shopping lists, get live price updates, track your savings, and more with the app.’

One user of the app said it had been an invaluable tool in finding the best savings.

‘My average shop previously was closer to $120 for me. With GroceryGetter I spend $70 so it’s a big reduction,’ shopper Rebecca Glossop said.

Customers can also share their shopping list with family and friends through the app.
