Play Hauler: Aisles of Glory to earn PC Optimum Points

You won’t find this game in any App Store nor will you earn free 500 PC Optimum points anywhere else every day if you practise your hauling skills and play No Frills’ Hauler: Aisles of Glory.

This web-based game truly has no frills, and that’s the idea. In fact it has no fancy animations, high-definition video nor 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound. What you get is a 1980s 8-bit 2D arcade style single player side-scrolling game. But that’s the clever idea behind the grocery chain’s latest marketing campaign. It’s designed for haulers, which they describe “as someone who gets a lot, for less and totally takes pride in the experience.”

This game is designed to let them practice before they head to No Frills for an epic haul.”

Is your home killing you?

It lurks in your home but you can’t see or smell it. And it may just be putting your life at risk.
