Scanning made simple

  • Ensure you scan every item

    From bananas to bag for life, you'll need to scan every item before adding it to your trolley.

    • When scanning products on promotion, such as Buy 1 Get 1 Free or Multibuys, simply scan each item to activate the promotion.
    • When buying two or more of the same or similar products, scan each individual item to ensure an accurate till receipt.
  • Products without barcodes

    • Individual Produce Individual products such as grapefruits and lemons have a barcode next to the label which can be scanned once the product has been selected.
    • Produce All other produce products can be weighed on the customer scales in the produce area. After weighing the items, scan the label produced by the scales.
    • Loose bakery items For every item selected, scan the barcode on the shelf edge label.
  • Products that won't scan

    If you have trouble scanning any products, keep them separate in your trolley. When you reach the payment area at the end of your shop, one of our Customer Assistants will scan these items for you.

  • Service checks

    Sometimes the Scan as you Shop system will randomly prompt us to carry out service checks, which means we need to scan a few of your items to make sure they have all been scanned successfully. Occasionally, we may need to rescan all of your shopping but don't worry, there will always be a member of staff available to help you with this part of the service.

  • Security tagged items

    Scan the tagged item but keep it separate in your trolley. When you reach the payment area at the end of your shop, one of our Customer Assistants will remove the security tags for you.
