PROMOTIONS

 

PML

 

PML Hybrid stores only received $5.51 off invoice for the Longbeach 20s Fresh Burst promotion instead of $10.51. Impacted stores have now been credited for any stock ordered when the incorrect off-invoice discount was applied. You will receive an RCTI with the description OI Promo FMC 2.8.21-13.8.21.

 

BAT

 

As of Monday 23.08, due to lack of uptake from consumers, BAT will commence the transition of all 30/120 carton configurations back to the 30/180 carton configurations. This affects;

  • Benson & Hedges 30/120 → Benson & Hedges 30/180
  • Pall Mall 30/120 → Pall Mall 30/180
  • Rothmans Regular 30/120 → Rothmans Regular 30/180
  • Winfield Original 30/120 → Winfield Original 30/180
  • Winfield Optimum 30/120 → Winfield Optimum 30/180

To manage the transition in their distribution centres, BAT will be executing a phased approach.
 

The first phase involves the switching over of Benson & Hedges 30/120 and Winfield Original 30/120 to the 180 configurations in all states ex NSW. (note: NSW will continue purchasing and scanning the 30/120 configurations until further advisement)
 

However, in Far-North Queensland and Northern Territory, BAT have made the decision to switch over all impacted sub-trademarks as listed above, as of Monday 23.08. The remaining 30/120 configurations availability will be communicated with you at a later date.
 

See below table for breakdown of carton configuration availability, as of Monday 23.08;

 

 

 

 

 

Weekly promotional capping will be updated to reflect the new 30/180 carton configuration. Retailers will not be disadvantaged by purchasing the larger configuration. Example of new promotional cap carton configuration calculation;

  • If store X has a promo cap of 10x 30/120 cartons per week
  • 10 x 120 sticks = 1,200 sticks per week
  • 1,200 sticks / 180 = 6.66 cartons per week
  • Store will be given a promo cap of 7x 30/180 cartons per week (rounded-up)

How will this affect rebates?

Off-Invoice rebates: This will only impact Winfield Original 30/120 (as it is the only 30/120 sub-trademark with an on-invoice component in the August promotional calendar).

  • Winfield Original 30/120 August on-invoice rebate = $4.20 ($1.05 per packet equivalent)
  • Winfield Original 30/180 additional deferred on-invoice rebate = $2.10 ($2.10 + $4.20 = $6.30) ($1.05 per packet equivalent)

This deferred rebate will be paid alongside deferred promotions at the end of the promotional period and will not be visible on myBAT at the time of purchase or on your purchase invoice.
Deferred rebates: Will be in-line with the 30/120 per packet equivalent.
