LIDL plus app

    Did you activate both? The app only mentions that you can't combine two monetary vouchers e.g. 0.50c off + €5 off

    It says it will give an error if you try to activate two vouchers that can't be combined.
    I did, yes, and there was no error. Can't say I saw any mention of not combining offers anywhere, but that could be it I suppose.

    This is why I asked earlier how do we scan this because as everyone knows- in Aldi or Lidl, they really rush you through the checkout and you have a ton of impatient shoppers breathing down your neck waiting to go next. It's stressful!!
    As I mentioned, in my Lidl there's a hole, just about big enough to put a phone and your hand through to scan it. The scanner is quite small so maybe it's a bit picky, I don't know, but I didn't get any grief from the cashier.

    Ok, I've figured out that the €0.36 was the discount off the standard price of the cookies. They're normally €0.59 each, so €2.36 for four, and the packs of four are normally €2. So all those little amounts off each item did actually add up to €5 in the end. An odd way of doing it.

    4 pack of cookies is €2 I got them for €1 they always been €2 for a four pack where I live

    I know, but on the till receipt it always showed the full price and then applied the discount afterwards bringing it down to €2 for some reason.

    Since the social distancing cake in its not at all rushed anymore and nobody should be breathing down your neck
    The scanner is easily accessible unless you have a monster sized mobile phone

    I've just signed up there now, thanks OP. Some reasonable offers on it. The €5 off is showing on the front page for me.

    Just as a side note. I use another app called StoCard (I'm on Android, dunno if it's on Apple). It allows you to put all your loyalty cards into the app and it works fine in Dunnes / Tesco / Supervalue etc. I just typed the Lidl card number into the app there and it shows the same image to be scanned so it should work. I like having all the cards in one location so I never forget them.

    Its handy when "sharing" cards. I have the same app on my missus phone and I don't use SuperValu much and don't have a card so I popped my mams card into my app to give her points the few times we go there.

    edit: I should have noted that some older supermarket scanners won't scan from a phone screen. In those cases it only takes a sec to type in the code.


    Turn up the brightness and it usually scans successfully

    The app turned up the brightness on my phone automatically, just on the scan QR code page, it lowered again when I backed out, never saw that before.

    No problem with multiple offers in one transaction either, I used Nutella/apple juice/cookies/chicken all 50% off along with the €5 off €25 voucher in the one go with no issues, added a bottle of vodka to get it aswell so no alcohol issue either.

    Google Pay does it if you store passes in it, and some boarding pass apps do it as well.

    Weird that the cookies didn't work on mine then.

    And I assume we were both in Bray? :D

    Just signed up, do you need to activate your offers in advance or can you leave it until your in store and when you do activate them, do they give you a code to use at the till or how does it work?
    Thank

    As far as I can tell the offers say expiring in 7 days and they still say that after you activate them so not sure what the point of that is...

    Anyway just hit activate on the ones you want in the app, bring the stuff to the till, scan the QR code on the new scanner at the till before you pay then just pay and all the discounts should appear on your receipt automatically.

    Tried to use it this evening and it wouldn't deduct the €5 off €25 but did give the almond ice creams at 50%..Lad on the till tried to put it through 3 times but no joy..His colleague intervened to say that the €5 off €25 was only available to staff at the moment but should work for me next time!!!😕

    Used it this evening in the Belgard road store. No issues with using any of the offers. The digital receipts are handy in the app.

    The Aer Lingus app does the same when you view a boarding pass.

    From my understanding it’s Valid for 28 days from signing up and 7 days from activation

    Another (stupid) question, but I activated all my offers and I can’t see a QR code or voucher Code, they just say activated. Do they get emailed to you or should they show up somewhere on the app or how does it work?
    Thanks

    It is not yet available in Blanchardstown West End

    You scan the card(QR code) that's on the home page of app.

    Shows on map when you select your store if it has LidlPlus or not

    Blakestown is active, apparently, if that's any use

    Thanks a million OP - saved €9 this morning

    I get you, so it’s all linked to your card as such.
    Thanks a mill, will give it a whirl over the weekend.

    Is it possible that my partner can add the same card to the app on her phone?

    She might be better getting her own as double the discounts

    How long is this app active with offers?
    and how often do the offers change?

    New offers every week from what I remember, I’m thinking they give new offers when the old ones are used
    The app says they are valid for 28 days from joining and 7 days from activating

    Better off having 2 accounts tbh

    Same for me. No idea why they do it this way as it's very confusing :confused: Got a free snackpot with the scratchgame on the app after my purchase today. Think I'll redeem it seperately just to make sure it's free! Thanks though OP!
    I'm presuming it's to 'simplify' refunds. If you bring something back, you'll be refunded the price minus the % discount applied to that specific item.

    Used this yesterday, as others said the discounts on the receipt are confusing but I think they all add up to the fiver off. Got the cookies for a euro, bin bags for 99c and those fake Magnum almond ice creams were delicious too.

    I wonder will the half price offers be a weekly thing? Great if they are

    All I need now is the four-for-€6 Franziskaner offer and I'm laughing!
