The nations favourite discount supermarket has just launched an app that gives shoppers exclusive discounts and points as a reward for shopping in their stores. We look at just how much money you can save and how easy it is to use.
Now on both Android and iPhone IOS, the Lidle Plus app allows shoppers to active offers that are only found on the app and collect points using a digital reward card that you can use contactless at the checkout.
Read on to find out how much you can save on your weekly shop with the Lidl Plus app.
How does the Lidl Plus app work?
We all seem to have so many plastic cards crammed into our wallets and purses these days do you will be pleased to find out that Lidl has opted for a digital card store within the app.
Registration in the app can take a few minutes to complete, so it's best to do before your trip to the supermarket. You will need to provide your name, address, date of birth and gender. The app then allows you to select your local store.
You will then receive a text message with a confirmation code to verify your account.
Once your account is verified, it could not be simpler to use. There are 4 main tabs that allow you to navigate the app. The first being the offers tab, this shows you four vouchers for different products that you can pick up whilst shopping around the store. These vouchers change on a weekly basis, so make sure to check back each time you visit.
If you would like to use one of these vouchers, you can press the activate button. These will then be automatically added to your e-card and deducted when you checkout.
When you get to the checkout either show your phone to the check-out assistant or the self-checkouts will prompt you to scan the app.
Can you save money with the Lidle Plus app?
As soon as you download the Lidl Plus app you will be shown some very tempting welcome deals. You will get £5 off with your first shop over £25, although keep in mind that this won't include alcohol.
One of our favourite features of the app is the FREE scratchcards that appear in the app each time you finish your shop. If you win one of the scratch cards you will make a small saving on your next shop.
When you spend over £100 in a month you also get given £2 worth of points, but best still when you spend over £200 you will earn £10 to spend on your next shop.
Should I have the Lidl Plus app?
If you only shop at Lidl then it's a must-have app. You will make great saving at a supermarket that is already one of the cheapest you can shop at. We managed to save over £9.50 in our first week using the app and we can only imagine what a large family can save on their weekly shop.
