Before becoming a mom, I would bet most women didn’t ever think of the grocery store as their get away place. However, it is funny how after having children a woman will jump at the chance to run to the grocery store with a list a mile long. It somehow becomes a place to get away and have a few moments to themselves. Of course, for some reason my two children still want to go with me like it is a trip to Disneyland or something.
A few nights ago I was asked to an event at a King Soopers in the area. It was going to be a small gathering of local bloggers to find out about a new and exciting feature they would be offering their shoppers. Yes, my children wanted to go, but I quickly explained to them that mommy was on her own tonight.
Upon arriving at King Soopers off of Leetsdale, I was truly impressed with the appearance of this store. I was taken to an amazing area in the back that was complete with a fireplace and incredibly comfortable sitting area. The section was located in their liquor department, which I had no idea even existed before this visit. After seeing this area, I could definitely see this as my get away grocery store.
Now for what I learned at the meeting. I have owned a King Soopers Value Card for as long as I can remember, but I was not aware of all the benefits it offered me. If you are like me, I have tons of little key cards hanging from my key chain. Unfortunately, I don’t think I have ever taken the time to register any of them.
I learned at this meeting the importance of my King Soopers Value Card and what I have been missing out on by not having it registered. By using your King Soopers value card, certain loyal customers receive money saving coupons by mail based on what they purchase on a regular basis. That means no more clipping coupons for things that you may or may not use. I was shown a mailer that one lady at the meeting received and it was packed with valuable coupons that could potentially save her hundreds of dollars. She received them for doing just what she normally does, shopping at King Soopers.
There were several other things that King Soopers offers its shoppers that I was not aware of. They have digital coupons that can be downloaded directly to your King Soopers Value Card. You can find the coupons by visiting the King Soopers website online or by downloading the Smart Phone App directly to your phone. Both of these options make it incredibly easy to save money on the purchases you make. As you can see from the picture, they have over 167 coupons currently being offered for download.
The biggest and best savings that King Soopers is offering to its customers is GAS SAVINGS! You may have always known that they offered gas savings when using your Value Card, but those saving just got better. Effective June 8th, which happens to be today, you can start using the “Fuel Accumulation Program”. Now instead of saving a maximum of .10 a gallon, you can save up to $1 a gallon per fill up at any King Soopers, City Market or Loaf ‘N Jug. (35 gallon max.)
Earning points towards the “Fuel Accumulation Program” couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is continue to shop at King Soopers. Receive a point for each dollar you spend at King Soopers, City Market and Loaf ‘N Jug. You can receive 50 points for every qualifying prescription you fill at King Soopers or City Market. Want to earn points even quicker? Get double points on qualifying gift card purchases at the Gift Card Mall inside King Soopers and City Market.
I don’t know about you guys, but gas prices hit my family hard each and every month. By saving on gas purchases without even having to change the routine I am already used to, that makes me a very satisfied customer. There is so much information on this amazing program that I would love to share with you, but the best way to learn all the benefits is by visiting www.kingsoopers.com/fuel.
Before your next fill up, visit your local King Soopers for some shopping first. Also, remember you can still use your card for .10 per gallon savings at Shell stations when you redeem 100 fuel points.
If you are not a King Soopers customer, consider giving them a try. They are a great store that gives back not only to their customers, but to the community as well. It doesn’t get much better than that.
