    Default Woolworths Earn and Learn - what a joke!

    So I'm not sure why I'm surprised by this but I just looked into what sorts of things schools can claim in return for the earn and learn stickers and I'm appalled!!!

    Here's just 1 example.... Collectively a school community would need to spend $29,320 for the school to eat.... Wait for it.... A 3.4 meter roll of butchers paper! 😳

    I know you can get bonus stickers for buying things from 'participating brands' but come on, this is an absolute, total and utter joke!

    I mean I know companies like Woolies don't give away money for nothing, but the ridiculousness of the rewards is actually sickening!

    Did anyone else realise how little you get under this program? Am I getting unreasonably upset about this? How does everyone else feel?

    I wouldn't want to eat a 3.4 metre roll of butcher's paper!

    But seriously, that is ridiculous, I have always wondered what you earn with those stickers and now that I see how much you need to earn and for what, what a joke!

    While I'm not surprised at all...a school community could easily spend that much in a week. For example if a school had 300 families, each which spent $100 at woolies a week then they would earn enough stickers for a roll of butchers paper.

    Does anyone else find that the cashiers just seem to guess how many stickers to give you?

    I'm not surprised. Woolies did this so more people would spend more money there, not to benefit schools. It's like the companies that make pink products and donate a tiny portion to breast cancer research. It's all crap. They don't do it for the community, they do it to turn a profit.

    Are you sure this is correct? I only question it because having worked in a small school with approximately 45 students- many of whom are siblings- our intake of earn and learn stickers was of course small.
    We still seemed to be able to use the stickers to claim quite a few items- one year we got a maths kit we could use for 3D shapes, capacity and volume etc. We also got a fair few items to restock our sports shed and a couple of books in the same year. I can't imagine nearly $30k would have been raised for our school at all?

    Oh! Now I don't feel so bad for continuing to shop at Coles and not support my school...
