i've used the app four times since downloading and have never got the five euro discount even though it's activated. Other discounts seem to be applied piecemeal, you might get one and not another and sometimes it's hard to get the reader to recognise the code on my phone. All in all not really impressed.

Apologies if you already knew this but it doesn't come off as a fiver, it distributes the discount across all your purchases. So if it has worked you won't actually see a €5 off at the end.

It’s spread as a percentage over various items totally to €5

No I didn't know that, seems a strange way to do it. I've noticed different discounts over selected items on the receipts all right and didn't understand why. Obviously the fiver could come off over several visits then as the one on my phone still shows as activated.

Yep always. I view shopping as a necessary evil so I wouldn't be a daily visitor

It's a lot more than a few cent for some. I can scan in a few seconds, never had a problem with it. This week I saved €20.53!

I'd say probably €2 tbh

Anyone know if there's a limit on a 50c scratch card? 50 flipping cent The €2 one seems to have bypassed me.

Our LIDL does not have phone signal inside, so we have a lot of times that folks have not activated their coupons before entering the store and then we have them trying to wave the phone around, running to the windows etc .. finally giving up and paying - is definitely wasting time for others I must say, lots of them also don't understand the app fully yet either - unfortunately they haven't been looking here on this forum :-)
I personally found it very easy to use and scan it even if I am not using any vouchers (it takes a second) as I get the digital receipt. I just check the vouchers available after I park my car and then activate the ones that I think I need and we are done. And Finally our LIDL now has the voucher items all at one place - yay
