Membership is free and we start every new account with a signing bonus of 2500 points. Points earned are kept in the account forever unless there is no activity in the account for one year; then the account reverts to zero.
With your permission, we can also access your account with your telephone number. So you can tell the clerk your phone number to earn point in your account. Anyone can assign their purchase to an account if they know the phone number. Same household members for example, can then make separate visits and still earn points.
Prior to 2018, we handed out membership cards. So we can scan the card to access the account as well.
In the event, you do not wish us to use your phone number, please choose a 10 digit number that you can remember. Effective Dec. 1, 2015, with each regular grocery purchase, the clerks will scan your membership card or enter your phone number and points will be added to your account. You will earn 750 points for ever $10 purchase or portion or thereof.
Phone numbers are used only for the purpose of awarding points to your account.
