While inflation continues to ignite, the daily lives of French people are becoming more and more complicated. Many families have to tighten their belts waiting for the bad weather to pass. But Intermarché, like some of its competitors, chooses to make a move to reduce the expenses of its customers.
It’s been a few months that inflation does not seem ready to stop. Indeed the latter, estimated at 5.2% by INSEE, has quite terrifying growth forecasts. INSEE is still predicting that at the end of the year inflation will easily reach 7% in September before falling slightly to 6.5% at the end of the year. These forecasts are not reassuring, since with it the most basic daily life of the French people becomes much more complex.
Some people even think about quitting, saying that per month it would be more profitable to be unemployed than to use your car. The same goes for supermarkets. Shopping has become a source of anguish for many families who account for each of their expenses to the nearest euro. But fortunately, alternatives to reduce the consequences of this price increase exist, although they are only temporary, they help the present of these families and people in need.
Aid against inflation
The French stick together by sharing their tips and tricks to reduce prices. Whether it’s tips for going on vacation with less dependence, lowering the price of fuel, or even reducing the total bill for shopping. For the latter many applications exist. In particular those allowing “cashback”. The system is simple, after shopping you take a picture of your receipt or scan the barcode at the bottom of the receipt. After that, the application will refund you part of the purchased products.
The government has also helped its citizens by offering upgrades to many aids. But the supermarkets themselves are trying to help. Some offer 30 products at €30, on products deemed essential. Others reduce their profit margins to allow them to offer lower prices. Intermarché also offers assistance to relieve its customers and their portfolios fighting against inflation.
Intermarché offers its help
Thus, Intermarché, to help its customers and their purchasing power, offers reductions of up to 10% on more than 1,800 products. This aid will be put in place from July 1, 2022. It will be available in all stores and drives for all customers with the loyalty card, and for those who do not yet have it, it will be available after the fourth visit. , enough to fight against inflation.
The president of Intermarché and Netto speaks out saying “Due to the exceptional inflationary context that we are experiencing, we estimate the increase in the budget of each French consumer at 224 euros for 2022.
