What the New Coin Means for Promotional Trolley Coins
The New British £1 Coin for Trolley Coins?
Britain’s new £1 coin went viral when its new look went public. The all-new 12-sided pound coin resembles the iconic design of a threepenny bit and was released on March 28, 2017.
With the circulation of this new pound coin, the British government urged everyone to spend their round pound coins or have them returned to the bank before they expired on the 15th of October 2017.
It’s fascinating to have a new pound coin, but what if it fails to do its job? For example, in particular activities like grocery shopping—when you find out that the coin can’t unlock the cart from the chain.
Supermarket Trolley Carts Keep up with New Coins
When you go grocery shopping, using a shopping cart is important. If you go on an emergency run for groceries and don’t have money for carts, promotional trolley coins come in handy.
When the new pound coin was released, however, using them for the trolley carts could have been an issue.
Scenarios like these are something we all fear. Good thing, some of today’s leading supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, and Morrison’s confirmed that their trolleys can keep up with this advancement.
Here are the statements released by the company’s spokesperson, respectively:
“We have replaced the lock on our trolleys so our customers will not be affected when the new pound is introduced. The new coin slots will accept the old and new pound as well as existing trolley tokens.”
“I’m pleased to let you know that our shopping trolleys are being adapted to accept both the new and current £1 coin, and also tokens in the shape of either coin.”
”Our customers needn’t worry about our trolleys. They will accept both the new £1 coin as well as the current version and trolley tokens.”
“We don’t envisage any issues with the introduction of the new pound coin.”
Alternative to Coins?
Lost that one last coin in your pocket? Perhaps, you need other alternatives to unchain that shopping cart!
Printed trolley coins and keyrings are practical items that can make your weekly shopping experience easier. They are very simple and convenient to use.
In fact, they also follow four easy steps just like the pound coins: insert, unlock, remove, and then shop!
You can carry these pocket-sized products everywhere. Meaning, they always come in handy whenever the shopaholic inside you drags you into the supermarket.
If you find them valuable, you might as well share their benefits with the people close to you—be it your family, friends, and clients.
It may seem like a simple keyring or giveaway, but it’s something very useful. People who often shop for groceries will appreciate custom trolley coins, especially since they work on most modern shopping carts.
What Are Custom Trolley Coins? These are tokens in the shape of a British pound coin used to unlock shopping carts at grocery shops. They are usually attached to a key ring for easy access.
Logo X to the Rescue!
Logo X has a selection of printed trolley coins that are the same size as a £1 coin, including plastic trolley, stick key ring, and enamel trolley coin, to name a few.
With the supermarkets’ announcement that they will accept both versions of the pound coin, then any trolley coins you currently have will still work for you and your clients. In the event that anything changes, you can be sure that Logo X will be first on the market with new shaped coins.
Trolley coins can be used to hand out to your affiliates and clients as a token of goodwill. These items are all available for customisation to add a more personal touch and appeal, helping create a buzz around you and your business.
Apart from the trolley key rings, we also have a wide variety of trolley token holders like trolley token clips, keychain coin holders, and silicone band trolley coins.This is a great promotional item choice that guarantees name recognition on the trolleys around the supermarket.
Plus, our printed trolley coins can also be used for gym lockers, and make the ideal gift for clubs and gyms that use lockers in their facilities.
Insert. Unlock. Remove. Shop!
See, a £1 coin isn’t the only unlocking option. People can also rely on token coins and key rings for all their shopping cart’s detaching needs.
Since everyone can benefit from these handy items, send them out as promotional giveaways or business gifts so you can help them insert, unlock, remove, and shop!
