Countdown creates new way to earn everyday donations

This time last year we asked Rewardhub shoppers what kind of stores they’d like to see more of on the platform. The most popular response was supermarkets, as supporters were looking for more ways to raise donations with everyday types of purchase. We are therefore very excited to announce that, as of this week, New Zealand’s leading supermarket is now available through Rewardhub.

Countdown has long been the most forward thinking supermarket in New Zealand, first launching online shopping way back in 1996. Since then they have developed unparalleled online shopping and delivery capabilities, with more delivery or Pick up options and product availability for online shoppers than any other retailer. Today shopping for groceries has never been easier.

It is also fitting that Countdown would be available through Rewardhub, as a brand with a strong track record of giving back to the community via the Countdown Food for Good Foundation last year they donated $7 million in food, funding and local sponsorship for New Zealand communities. They were the first large food retailer to ditch the plastic bags and use electric delivery vehicles.

It’s not news that the last year has had its challenges for households and charities alike. So it’s a win for both supporters and causes to be able to earn free donations while still enjoying everyday low prices on their weekly shopping. In our house, Countdown Pick up is a big time saver, and I look forward to earning donations with my weekly shop - we hope that you will too.
