A Woolworths shopper has shared her simple trick to help customers fast track their Bricks collectables by getting 15 packs for just $30.15.
Customers can collect one Bricks pack for every $30 spent in store or online.
However, shoppers can score bonus collectables in a single transaction if they buy selected products from participating brands – including Tip Top, Twinings, Carman’s, McCain, Head & Shoulders, Moccona, Colgate and more.
Shopper Stacie, from Sydney, offered her own shopping list on social media so customers can fast track their Bricks collection.
She suggested buying Ingham’s chicken coating mix seasoning, Colgate toothbrushes, Sorbent tissues, Twinings tea and Tip Top bread.

Colgate: Toothbrush – $2 X 3 = $6
Sorbent: Tissues – $2 X 3 = $6
Twinings: 10 pk tea – $2 X 3 = $6
Tip Top: Sunblest – $3 X 3 = $9
Total: $30.15 = 15 collectables
Stacie said you can replace tissues or tea with McCain’s frozen peas.
To get 16 packs altogether, she said you can add a bottle of Mount Franklin water for an extra $2, taking the total to $32.15.
She explained that the trick was to spend $30 or more in one transaction and buy up to three products from each participating brand to get the bonus collectables.
After sharing her shopping trick, many said they couldn’t wait to start collecting.
‘Oh gosh my kids would love it if I was to do this and get 16 packets,’ one mum wrote, while another added: ‘Oh this is so good to know.’
The Bricks collectables was launched in supermarkets across Victoria, Queensland, Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia, and Tasmania online and in store on September 8.
The toy range will launch in New South Wales and ACT from Wednesday, September 22 due to Covid-19 restrictions.
‘The delayed start in NSW and ACT means our team can continue to focus on ensuring they meet the needs of the community, particularly across Greater Sydney, where there continues to be elevated demand for food and everyday essentials,’ Woolworths Chief Marketing Officer Andrew Hicks said.

Her post comes just days after Woolworths hinted at a ‘rare’ collectable.
According to the store’s terms and conditions, one rare Bricks pack will join the set.
The supermarket is yet to release details and pictures of the rare collectable – but it’s understood there will be more than 400 packs circulating around Australia.
The supermarket’s collectables made headlines news last year after a shopper tried to sell the ‘world’s first’ complete Disney+ Ooshies set on social media for $25,000.
In 2019, customers attempted to cash in on the rare ‘furry Simba’ from the Lion King Ooshies set on eBay, with bids fetching up to $100,000.
The rare collectable comes just days after a shopper urged customers to buy all the add-on accessories early after she noticed an increasing amount of parents struggling to complete their previous collectables set amid an apparent shortage.
‘If I can give everyone a warning, it’s to buy all the accessories you need in the first day or two to avoid being disappointed and missing out,’ she wrote on Facebook.
‘Obviously only buy what you need but every promo I see so many mums desperate to get their hands on cases that have already sold out.
‘We know these things sell out quickly, so if you think your kids are going to love it then grab what you need. I’ve been left short before and it wasn’t fun.’
In addition, customers can also purchase the delivery trucks for $10 each and a larger replica of a Woolworths electric delivery truck for $15
There will also be additional Woolworths Bricks figurines on sale for just $3 each
Shoppers will be able to collect Woolworths Bricks no matter how they choose to shop – via Pick Up, Direct to Boot, online home delivery or in store

‘Woolworths Bricks is a fun and interactive way of learning at home that can spark conversations within families about sustainability; whether that’s how materials like plastic or refrigerators can be given a second life, or how solar panels and electric car chargers are making a positive impact on the environment,’ Mr Hicks said.
Customers will have the option to drop pre-loved Bricks collectables to any Woolworths store to be recycled.
The partnership with TerraCycle helps create a circular economy by aiding the creation of new items from the Woolworths Bricks, including park benches and garden beds.
