It used to be that shopping was a fairly simple activity - you went to the supermarket, picked up what you needed, paid for it and left. But in recent years it's become a lot more complicated. Supermarkets in the UK now sell much more than food: you can get your insurance there, pay bills and a variety of other services. In many ways they've become a one-stop shop for lots of life's daily chores.
You can also get 'rewards' - join up and get a 'loyalty card' and every time you shop you'll get points and discounts. And just when you thought supermarkets couldn't offer anything else, they turned into mini-banks, offering you cash when you shop. Go into any UK supermarket, pay for your shopping, and you're more than likely to be asked if you want 'any cashback with that?'
