‘Happy Hour’ at Pick n Pay launches – 50% off entire grocery baskets and R500 off for thousands of shoppers

| Innovation and technology

Pick n Pay is launching ‘Smart Shopper Happy Hour’ this Friday (13/10/2023). This first-time-ever initiative will offer a limited number of massive discount vouchers for registered members to claim on the Pick n Pay Smart Shopper app and shop in-store during an allocated one-hour slot.

The inaugural Smart Shopper Happy Hour on 13 October 2023 will offer two in-app discounts: a limited number of customers can claim a discount of 50% off their entire grocery basket. Thousands of customers can claim a R500 discount, valid for groceries worth R1000 or more. 

The ‘Smart Shopper Happy Hour’ voucher will be loaded onto the Pick n Pay Smart Shopper app in the morning for customers to claim on a first-come basis. The vouchers are then redeemable in stores nationwide within a prescribed hour that same day.

Customers are encouraged to enable app notifications to ensure they don’t miss out on ‘Happy Hour’.

"This exciting initiative will be a lot of fun for our engaged Smart Shopper customers and is something savvy shoppers will really enjoy. The ‘Happy Hour’ savings will definitely make it worthwhile to visit the voucher section of the Smart Shopper app, where customers will also find personalised discounts offering extra savings on the items they shop most often,” says Wayne Mhlanga, Digital Transformation Officer at Pick n Pay.

Smart Shopper Happy Hour’ vouchers will be sporadically released on the Pick n Pay Smart Shopper app, and the vouchers will vary for each ‘Happy Hour’. “With this initiative, we have several interesting surprises for customers. We will give customers the chance to get some really great rewards,” says Mhlanga.

This initiative forms part of Pick n Pay’s plans to modernise its Smart Shopper programme by emphasising engagement in the coming months.
