Big Changes for SavingStar Users at Kroger-Owned Stores
Posted on Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 at 9:47 am
We’ve just recently heard of some changes coming to SavingStar.com that we want to make sure you’re aware of. This will mostly affect Kroger owned stores so if you shop at those, please take a moment to read. I’m especially excited about the new stores they are adding! Let us know if you have any questions.
Dear SavingStar Member,
Important Account Change:
Kroger, Dillons, Baker’s, Gerbes, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, JayC, King Soopers, City Market, PayLess, Owen’s, QFC, Ralphs, and Smith’s.
The way you save at Kroger-owned stores will soon change. Starting October 1, Kroger will transition from an “automatic” (loyalty card) retailer and instead participate as a receipt-scanning retailer. This means that you will redeem SavingStar offers at all Kroger-owned stores by submitting a picture of your receipt instead of linking SavingStar offers to their loyalty card. This change impacts all Kroger-owned stores, including: Kroger, Dillons, Baker’s, Gerbes, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, JayC, King Soopers, City Market, PayLess, Owen’s, QFC, Ralphs, and Smith’s. This was a corporate decision made by Kroger.
All SavingStar offers redeemed at Kroger-owned stores using your loyalty card must take place by September 30 (rewards will post to your account on or before October 9). Starting October 1, all redemptions will be credited when you submit a picture of your receipt, either through the SavingStar app or SavingStar.com. Visit your app store to download the free app.
We are pleased to announce that also starting in October, you’ll be able to redeem SavingStar offers at new stores – Safeway, Vons, Food 4 Less and H-E-B – by submitting a picture of your receipt using the SavingStar app or through SavingStar.com. Visit your app store to download the free app.
Other recently added retailers include: Walmart, Target, Kmart, BJ’s, Costco, Sam’s Club, Walgreens, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Meijer, and WinCo.
Thank you for using SavingStar!
