Coles and Woolworths introduce Airtasker to the mainstream economy
AUSTRALIANS can now give each other the gift of time, literally.
Jobs platform Airtasker has taken the sharing economy mainstream in a major new tie-up with Coles, Woolworths and Big W to sell gift cards offering credit for nearly any task, from cleaning and handyman work to late-night food deliveries.
The cards, which will be sold at more than 2300 outlets around the country, will retail for $50. A typical $50 job on the platform, which operates on a peer-reviewed marketplace model, would be mowing a lawn, cleaning a one-bedroom apartment, hanging paintings in a house, or picking up and delivering a fridge.
