New savings for seniors in NSW

Seniors can now save on average $200 a year on their groceries, thanks to Seniors Card discounts the NSW Government has secured with the Woolworths Group.

NSW Seniors Card holders are now eligible for a five per cent discount on Woolworths WISH eGift cards that can be used towards purchases at Woolworths Group stores, including supermarkets and Big W.

This new partnership also gives Seniors Card holders 25 per cent off mid-week home delivery and discounts on insurance and mobile phone products.

The bundle of new discounts can be accessed through the purchase of Woolworths WISH eGift cards via the NSW Seniors Card website.

NSW is the only state to have this offer so far. We would encourage more retailers to see what savings they can offer seniors.

These discounts are in addition to other measures the Government has introduced to ease cost of living pressures for seniors, including:

  • A $50 increase in energy rebates for low income households, to $285;
  • Average CTP green slip savings of $120 a year;
  • Public transport fare concessions, including the Gold Opal for seniors which remains capped at $2.50 for all day travel.

NSW is the only state to have this offer so far and with more than 1.5 million Seniors Card members in NSW and 5700 participating businesses, seniors are encouraged to take advantage of the savings.
