Students stretch their budgets

2018-04-25 06:01

RECOGNISING the severe financial pressures of students, the Shoprite group has implemented Student Discount Week once a month across all its Shoprite and Checkers stores.

Last year, the group rolled out R5 meals at all its Shoprite stores and continues to subsidise basic food items. To receive 10% off at any Shoprite or Checkers supermarket, students need to register by dialing *120*569* your ID Number# (for Shoprite) or *120*885* your ID Number# (for Checkers). Once registered, they will receive an SMS with a unique coupon and will have five days to redeem it. T&Cs apply.

S tudent Discount Week dates:

25 April - 29 April

23 May - 27 May

27 June - 1 July

29 Aug - 2 Sept

26 Sept - 30 Sept

24 Oct - 28 October.
