Giving Woolworths a run for its money, Bunnings Warehouse recently launched Little Seed Collections – and shoppers are walking away with the complete set for free, according to a recent Daily Mail Australia report.
However, instead of collecting just one of 15 items for every $30 spent at the checkout, Australian shoppers can walk away with the complete ‘My Little Seeds Garden’ set, and tray, free during their one visit, with the collection available as part of school holiday workshops for children, according to the report.
The vegetable and herb kit include basil, thyme, lettuce, radish, oregano, mint, spinach, tomato, parsley, coriander, chives, dill, silver beet, rocket and cucumber.
Parents are sharing snaps of their new collection, with many revealing they did not have to spend anything to get the complete set for their kids.
“’They will be releasing them from each store for kids for free over the school holidays,’ one shopper said in the report.
Others urged customers to call their local stores before visiting as the launch date of collectables are different in every area.
“Please call ahead to your store first! I just saved myself a wasted hour round trip as apparently they are not doing theirs until next week,” one woman said.
Another customer said stores were allocated the collections to do whatever they wished with them, including give away, conduct a class at a local school or in a DIY workshop.
“Some stores have done this already. There is no promotion of getting one with $30 spent like Woolies,” the customer said.
The giveaway comes just weeks after Woolworths launched the Discovery Garden collectables, encouraging shoppers to collect from a range of herbs, flowers and vegetables.
For every $30 they spend at checkout, shoppers can pick up one of 24 different varieties.
Shoppers can also grow their own flowers such as violas and pansies, with a free interactive growth chart and learning book available to support the growing journey, according to the report.
