I work in the Brand Activation Team in Food Marketing. We manage things like events, Taste & Tell and Double Discount.
We’ve known for ages about our extended Christmas Double Discount; it’s running for three days, from 20-22 December, and applies to branded products as well as the usual own-brand ones.
Since our team’s had so much time to think about how we’ll make the most of it, Ellie (not pictured), Alice, Jo and I (pictured left to right) are sharing our plans for inspiration.

Whenever I think of Christmas, I think of drinking Baileys with my Grandma. We always have a glass or two on Christmas Day, sitting on the sofa, tucking into chocolates and watching Christmas TV. I’ll be picking up a bottle as a gift to both us and looking forward to toasting together.

The rest of my team always jokes that I’m into fancy food and drink. I get really excited about the Irresistible range, and I’ve loved all the exciting products that we’ve brought out this Christmas. Since it came out this summer, our Irresistible 5 x Distilled London Dry Gin has been a firm favourite. I’ll be buying that, plus a couple of bottles of our Irresistible Premium Indian Tonic Water, to take along to my annual Christmas party with my friends.

Anyone who knows me knows I love cheese. Christmas is the one time of year when my family doesn’t raise their eyebrows as it overflows on my plate. I’ve already made my way through one Co-op Cheese Selection – it needed testing before it made it onto the Christmas menu. It’s passed with flying colours, and my family’s crossing their fingers it won’t have magically disappeared come Christmas Day!
Ella Scott, Assistant Brand Activation Manager
I grew up with a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in my stocking every year – at Christmas, it always reminds me of my childhood. Since I stopped waking up with a sock full of presents at the end of my bed on Christmas morning (which is still a sore point), I’ve started giving them to all my family as gifts. I’ll be stocking up next Saturday, on my way home for the holidays.
There’s plenty more to make the most of across Co-op. Don’t forget:
Co-op Electrical’s ‘Price Crash’ event starts on Wednesday 19 December. You can get huge discounts on hundreds of electrical products from leading brands online until 11 January.
Co-op Beds is in the mix too. You can save up to £150 on a new Silentnight or Rest Assured divan bed set or mattress when you trade in your old one online by 7 January.
Check out the full scope of discounts in Co-op Food stores.
