It seems that the last week the talk has been all about Albertsons! It was brought to my attention that some areas have started a new rewards program. The program looks very similar to the Ralphs points program:
- Earn $5 for every 5000 points that you accumulate.
- Look for specially marked items to know which items will gain points.
- Earn 10 points for every $1 purchased on participating items. ( ex: Lay’s Chips is a participating item at $4.49–you get 40 points)
So far, I have only seen this in the San Diego area Albertsons. I’m unsure if this will spread to the rest of us–but usually stores like to pilot a certain area to test new programs before they push it out to the rest of the stores.
