A MUM revealed how she managed to get her entire Christmas shop worth hundreds of pounds – for free.
The savvy shopper claimed she uses various supermarket’s rewards and points systems, saving up the entire year for a big festive blowout.
The mum, from Australia, shared her nifty shopping tip to Facebook, after revealing she converted her points.
She said: “This is how you turn your Rewards Dollars into cold hard cash and purchase what you want or save dollars.
“You can do one of two things: either withdraw or move/keep your weekly shopping money amount in your savings account and unlock your Rewards money and use that money to food shop.
“Meanwhile, you have cold hard cash set aside and untouched.”

She claimed she’s managed to save £331 ($590) in a year, which went towards a big Christmas blow-out.
The mum, who shopped at Woolworths, added: “This is my $590 Rewards Dollars for 2020 converted to cold hard cash and it's been deposited into an account where I set aside my roof money (money set aside for when you need it).”
Mums have raved about her tip online, with one person saying: “This is amazing, but I'm wondering how you get so many points you must spend a fortune on groceries – I'm lucky to get $50 throughout the year.”
Another wrote: “That is truly amazing.”
A third admitted: “I definitely need to work out my rewards better.”
While this person commented: “This is the best idea, I might try to save mine up for next year.”
If you’re looking to copy her tip, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons have rewards systems which let you collect points, which you can then spend.
Sainsbury’s uses a Nectar card, and shoppers get one point for every £1 spent at a qualifying store, including on fuel.
The supermarket said: “You can collect points at Sainsbury’s, Sainsbury’s Bank, Sainsbury's Energy, Esso, Expedia and eBay as well as many other retailers.”
And you can also spend them in a variety of places, including Argos and Vue cinemas.
Although you might have to buy your groceries in stages, as Sainsbury’s added: “Nectar points can be spent in 500 points blocks, so you can spend up to the nearest £2.50 of your shop using your Nectar points.”
Meanwhile Tesco’s Clubcard lets you collect one point for every £1 you spend in-store and online.
They added: “On fuel it's 1 point for every £2 you spend.”
The supermarket said: "Just hand over your vouchers at the till or enter the code at checkout if you're shopping online.
"The face value of the vouchers will be deducted from your bill."
And at Morrisons you can earn five points for every £1 spent in-store, online, at their Cafés or for every litre of fuel bought.
Once you get to 5,000 points, you'll receive a £5 voucher.
