Ergh. I finally taught my Mum to use it last week.

I really don't want tailored vouchers. They do the worst vouchers ever.

They send me 20p off coupons for things I never buy. Or very little money off a £100 spend (like a single person alone is ever going to but that target!).

Better to just have decent deals...their 50% off deals in the past couple of months have been good.
"...customers have increasingly told us they find the process of choosing and remembering their picks quite confusing."

Nailed it.

It was fun using the PYO app
Oh well, nothing lasts forever as they say
Let's make the most of these last few weeks
"Please encourage customers to swipe their myWaitrose card to continue benefiting from exclusive myWaitrose offers and rewards. myWaitrose members can benefit from FREE hot drinks, FREE Waitrose Food magazine, newspapers, 5% off your dry cleaning, 20% off all fish every Friday from the counter and more."

Or just ditch your myWaitrose card so that they can't track and analyze your spending habits anymore...

There's zero incentive to swipe it apart from getting a drink. Of which I buy seperately...

I think it's the opposite, there was never much worth abusing.

Like I have said before the free magazines 'stack' with the money off coupons

so a free paper 3 pounds 2 pound free mag they also did a 2 pound free drinks mag at christmas

30 -3 -2 -2 -6 = 23 pounds of shopping for 17
plus whatever cashback you can snag

top tip; save the magazines for next time as they 'sell' out fast

Yeah I am Jimmy Carrs accountant in fact....
I like the simple discount on the shelf and the £5 off coupon for £x shop : simple and easy to manage like Aldi, Lidl and Iceland.

PYO and customised coupons - too much bureaucracy for me.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I enjoyed my 20 per centers

I reckon a good percentage of Waitrose customers are pensioners though. Not so simple for them.

I should have mentioned NewsBiscuit is a satirical news site started over a decade ago by John O'Farrell. I assumed people would realise this just by reading the article.

This will change how I shop at Waitrose. Probably why it’s being withdrawn tbh 😄

Yep, me too. Gutted tbh.
I find the app very simple, you search for what you want and add it. What makes it confusing is choosing the correct pick that Waitrose has on offer within the same product range. Countless times I've added Lurpak slightly salted, but failed to notice they meant the Lurpak salted or non salted!
Everything about Waitrose offers are rubbish like free paper, coffee, PYO. Most of their items are overpriced compared to Tesco and Asda.

And most Tesco and Asda items are overpriced compared with Aldi and Lidl. The Aldi/Waitrose comparison is horrendous, which is why we now save a small fortune every week by having made the switch. The only thing I miss is the social chats, which don't happen much in Aldi!
Just got the email about this(why do I seem to get them hours,days or even weeks after other people ?)


Also tot my waitrose vouchers in the post they have me sussed

Grrrr. I got 4 x £4 off £40. £2.50 off seafood and £1 off crackers. This is why I hate vouchers. They aren't fair.

You get 20%, I get 10%. You've got a lower spend too. I've got a mind to have a whinge at them.
