- available on USSD, WhatsApp and the Shoprite app with in-store or online support;
- linked to the Xtra Savings rewards programme; and
- available to foreign customers, who can purchase goods in our stores using the Money Market Account voucher wallet.
Xtra Savings rewards programme
The Xtra Savings rewards programme boasts more than 27.8 million members (FY2023) across Shoprite and Checkers supermarkets and gives back discounts worth billions of rands to customers annually.
After successfully launching Checkers Xtra Savings in 2020, the Group rolled out the Shoprite Xtra Savings programme in 2021, and in an African retail first launched its monthly subscription offering, Xtra Savings Plus, combining the best of the Xtra Savings rewards programme with Sixty60’s effortless convenience.
Xtra Savings gives customers instant savings on groceries, airtime deals, free monthly funeral grocery cover and more. The deep data gathered through the rewards programme enables a better understanding of members’ behaviours to tailor deals, communication and channels based on what customers need and want.
The CredX finance product, which is often cheaper than bank financing, is available to all of the Group’s suppliers - especially SMMEs, for whom cash flow constraints and access to affordable funding are significant business growth obstacles in South Africa. CredX enables suppliers to obtain crucial working capital funding at the lowest industry rates.
