“Schnucks Rewards” Launches in Rockford, Program Rewards Customers for Purchases

 

Rockford, Ill., May 15, 2019 – Schnuck Markets, Inc. announced today the expansion of its “Schnucks Rewards” program to its six Rockford-area stores. The program allows customers to earn points redeemable for dollars off future purchases. At checkout, Rockford Schnucks customers will now be able to choose between earning Schnucks Rewards or Fuel Rewards.

“This is a modern way for us to say ‘thank you’ to customers for choosing Schnucks, and to reward them for something they’re already doing – buying groceries to feed their families,” said Schnucks Vice President of Marketing, Ted Schnuck. “We know that shoppers have many options to choose from and our hope is that Schnucks Rewards provides them with one more reason to choose us.”

Customers who sign up for Schnucks Rewards will earn 10 rewards points for every dollar spent on qualifying* purchases. After accruing 1,000 points (the equivalent of $100 in purchases), customers will earn $2 off a future purchase. Customers can choose to redeem dollars off as they are earned or allow them to accumulate (up to $500).

To participate, customers should download the Schnucks Rewards app from their smartphone’s App Store or Google Play, and create an account (or use their existing Schnupons digital coupon log-in information). Customers who do not have a smartphone can still participate by visiting www.schnucks.com/rewards and using their phone number to register. To earn points, customers will scan the Schnucks Rewards in-app barcode or enter their phone number at checkout.

Rewards members who have downloaded the app will gain access to exclusive features such as in-app digital coupons, a shopping list that automatically organizes the order of items in a shopper’s list based on the layout of the customer’s selected Schnucks store, and a wellness guide that allows customers to view nutrition labels and attributes such as heart smart, gluten-free, high protein, and organic. The app also denotes WIC-approved products.

With the addition of Rockford, Schnucks Rewards is now available at all of the company’s 117 stores.

*Points may not be earned on lottery, tobacco, third-party gift card purchases, wire transfers or any non-food purchases made at customer service. Points may be earned on pharmacy prescriptions and alcohol purchases, however, customers cannot redeem dollars on those purchases.
