Get Discounts

Australia has so many discounts. Check out these tips to get discounts as well as these tips to get coupons.

Up to $200 off Food

Get your first box free with HelloFresh! Essentially, try them for free then cancel if you want.

Get up to $180 off EveryPlate, split across your first 5 boxes with the code THRIFTYEPLATE.

Get up to $144 off Dinnerly (49% off your first order, then 30% off the next two.)

Marley Spoon offers up to $190 off 4 orders! That’s 53% off your first order, and 20% off your next three.

Australia has a lot of freebies and sign-up bonuses.

Check out a list of birthday freebies here and other freebies here.

Always check any site you are shopping with to see if they have a discount or freebie if you sign up too.


Lastly, join cashback sites to save even more. My favourites have been Cash Rewards and Honey.

Join all the sites, install them in your toolbar and be notified every time you can get a discount.

I’ve noticed sometimes the percentage back will be different between the sites.

Also, some sites work with some cashback sites and not others.

Your first step needs to be getting the apps and Chrome extensions installed.

They can notify you when you are on a site eligible for cash back and how much you will get.

The ones I use are:

CashRewards: By far my favourite as it usually has the highest cash back offer, the payments are processed easily and customer services has been good.

Simply join CashRewards for free, activate it when you see the cash back offer and get a bonus $20 cash back with your first purchase over $20.

Shopback: Works the same as CashRewards. You can only activate and use one so I compare to see which one is offering me a better deal. Join Shopback for free and get a bonus after your first purchase through them too.

Honey: Slightly different, Honey offers cash back but also scans for discounts and coupon codes. Join Honey for free here.

Swagbucks: Best known as an online survey site, they also have a cash back program with the cash being awarded in points you accrue and cash out. Join free here.

ReceiptJar: This is for after your purchase is final. Upload your receipt and get points. Once you reach 1,000 points you can get a gift card. Join free with the code KYLIT3QH2 and get a bonus 200 points when you upload your first receipt.
