Pick n Pay has launched a new Smart Shopper app that enables customers to earn points even if they have forgotten to carry their Smart Shopper cards with them.
In a statement on Wednesday (11 October), Pick n Pay said the new app “enables completely digital and card-free Smart Shopper membership.”
Launch of Pick n Pay Smart Shopper app
“Customers can seamlessly register and instantly receive a virtual card, which can be used in-store or online. Smart Shoppers can also opt for digital receipts on the app, which will be available to view immediately after each transaction,” the retailer added.
In addition, customers will now be able to buy airtime and data on the app using their Smart Shopper points as payment. It will also be easier to check your points balance and get the best offers.
Pick n Pay’s Digital Transformation Officer Wayne Mhlanga said, “We have re-engineered the tech behind the app, and our new machine-learning algorithm is generating more relevant personalised discounts and new product recommendations.”
Smart Shopper Happy Hour
The retailer said it will also launch a new app-only Smart Shopper Happy Hour initiative, which will load vouchers on the Smart Shopper app in the morning for customers to claim on a first come basis. They will then redeem the vouchers during a prescribed shopping hour later in the day.
“Smart Shopper Happy Hour launches with a discount of 50 percent off customers’ entire shop later this week. As vouchers are limited, customers are encouraged to enable app notifications to ensure they don’t miss out,” Pick n Pay said.
Remember, you need to register your Smart Shopper card to enjoy these benefits. If you haven’t, you can do so by sending a WhatsApp message to the number +27 60 070 3037.
“Customers can continue using their current Smart Shopper cards or transition to a virtual card via our app. We’re promoting virtual membership for new members, as this app not only streamlines their benefits but also aligns with our commitment to a more environmentally conscious future by reducing plastic usage,” Mhlanga concluded.
