Boosting Hip Pocket Savings

The NSW Government Savings Finder program is designed to raise awareness of the more than 70 ways to save across to help people with the cost of living.

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith said since launching in 2017, the program had saved families around $5.8 billion, with Australian-first vouchers, rebates and initiatives designed to find savings in every aspect of daily life.

“We know how hard it is for so many families in our community, which is why we are committed to easing the cost of living for all households,” Stuart Ayres said.


“Whether you’re a family, a retired couple, a young professional or a small business owner, we want to deliver you hip pocket savings.”


Stuart Ayres said many families and businesses are unware of the various savings available, ranging from family activities to holiday vouchers.


“Our cost of living program is designed to help with everyday expenses including household energy and utilities, transport, raising children, dining, experiences and accommodation,” Stuart Ayres said.


“More than three million people have accessed the free Savings Finder tool, which has something for everyone. It can be easily found on either the Service NSW App, or the MyServiceNSW Account on the Service NSW website.”


Stuart Ayres said Savings Specialists are available in-person at Service NSW centres or via phone on 13 77 88, providing personalised assistance to find which initiatives are best suited to a family’s individual needs.


“To date, there have been more than 97,000 appointments made with Savings Specialists, saving households an average of around $770,” Stuart Ayres said.


“My message to local families is simple – do yourself a favour and give the Savings Finder program a go or book an appointment with a Savings Specialist. You could walk away with extra money in your pocket.”


The NSW Government has this week launched a campaign about the cost of living programs and it will run for four weeks across television, print, radio and social media.
