At Coles, Queenie claims that customers can request a rain check if a sale item is out of stock.

“Don’t worry if a discounted item you want to buy is out of stock because you can ask for a rain check,” she said.

“So if that item is back in stock, you can buy it for the discounted price up to 30 days later.”

Customers can also download the Flybuys app to activate and receive ‘bonus offers’ in your store at Coles.

For example, customers can get a discount on their groceries with a certain number of points.

For a limited time, Coles customers can also receive two free red wine glasses in exchange for 36 Flybuys credits or 18 credits plus $18.

Queenie said all you have to do is ask a member of staff.

Another person said, ‘Yes! I love flybuys. I was able to get my hands on an Apple Watch Series 7 through points!’

The best times to shop at supermarkets:

In the morning – shoppers can save between 10 and 20% on goods that are about to expire

Before dinner – shoppers can save up to 50% on goods that are about to expire

Just before the store closes – shoppers can save up to 90% on near-expiry goods

*Discounts are determined by store policies and times and may vary
