“The Westfield Insider – Meet the Finalists”

The first Australian to be paid $100,000 to Shop and Tell 



Samnang Sou (NSW), Alyce Cowell (VIC) and Brooke Lowther (QLD) have been shortlisted out of

1450 applicants in Westfield’s national search for Australia’s Savviest Shopper.


The three finalists will take on shopping challenges over the next three weeks in the form of Style

Sessions at selected Westfield centres around the country. They will also post blogs, Facebook updates

and videos on westfield.com.au.


The challenges will be uploaded online at westfield.com.au where the public voting process will

commence from Monday 11 October until Sunday 31 October. Voters can also go into the draw to win

one of ten $5,000 Westfield Gift Cards. 


John Batistich, General Manager Marketing, Westfield said that “we were overwhelmed by the calibre of

the Westfield Insider applicants and it was a tough decision to shortlist three finalists. Already there is a

community of Westfield shoppers sharing their tips on Facebook and we will only see this grow when

the Westfield Insider is appointed.” 


The search began on the 12th September

with 1,450 ‘savvy shoppers’

applying

for this $100,000 job

opportunity of a lifetime.

The shortlist of applicants underwent a series of interviews to reach the final

three. 


The successful

Westfield Insider’

will be offered a 12 month position to blog and inform

the online

community about ‘on trend, on budget’ style, product and retail news. They will also lead and reward a

community of shoppers through the Westfield Insider Facebook page. 


The Westfield Insider, Australia’s Savviest Shopper,

will be announced on Thursday 4th November on

westfield.com.au
