Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I need help or require a refund?

Please see a Team Member who will be happy to assist you.

Why are my items being scan checked?

A key aim of this trial is to test the accuracy and reliability of this new technology. Accordingly, you can expect us to conduct scan checks from time to time to track how it is performing. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we conduct these.

Will I earn and redeem Rewards points for my shop using the Scan&Go app?

Yes - Rewards points will be accrued and redeemed on the Rewards card linked to your Woolworths online account.

Why do I have a $0.01 charge on my card statement?

When registering a new card, a temporary authorisation hold for $0.01 may be placed on your payment method to ensure your card is valid. Authorisations can take up to 30 days to be released depending on your financial institution.
