Woolworths revamps same-day home delivery subscription

Woolworths customers can now get their online orders delivered in just hours, as the supermarket revamps its Delivery Unlimited subscription plan.

In the last year, Woolworths has doubled its same-day delivery windows for customers.

Delivery Unlimited was launched by Woolworths in 2019 and offers customers access to unlimited home deliveries over $100 and covers the cost of reusable paper bags.

The upgraded plan could see customers getting their groceries in just hours and could save them hundreds in the long run.

"We’ve invested heavily to improve our online network in recent years and now offer more same day delivery windows than any other supermarket in Australia," Woolworths Director of eCommerce, Annette Karantoni said in a statement.

"With this revamp, our subscribers can enjoy the benefits of our same day delivery offer and get even more value from their plan."

The revamped subscription will allow subscribers to access free same-day delivery options and "heavily discounted" Delivery Now orders.

"Under the revised subscription plan, customers will have access to three and five-hour same day windows for free on orders over $100," Woolworths said in a statement.

"Additionally, subscribers will get $10 off one hour same-day delivery windows ($5) and $9 off Delivery Now ($10), which offers customers delivery to the door in under two hours."

Woolworths is also offering 10 times Everyday Rewards points on fruit and vegetables to Delivery Unlimited subscribers until July 20, 2021 to mark the revamp.

"Delivery Unlimited has been really popular and helped some of our savvy online customers save more than $500 in delivery fees with their subscriptions," Ms Karantoni said.

"We’re now raising the bar to offer even better value with added flexibility and more choice of delivery options for subscribers."
