Some of your favorite grocery stores and drug stores offer loyalty cards. Most of the prices that are reflected in their sales ad requires you to have a loyalty card to receive the price listed. Often times, you will receive points or cash back based upon your purchases using your store card.
Ralphs (Kroger): Offers rewards points that can be used to purchase gas once you have accumulated a certain amount of points. You get these points each time you use your Ralphs Club Card.
CVS and Rite Aid: Offer reward dollars for certain items that you purchase. CVS reward dollars are called Extra Care Bucks (ECB’s ) & Rite Aid’s are called Up’s.
Not having a store loyalty card could result in paying higher prices for the items you buy. If you are unsure if your favorite store offers a loyalty card, ask customer service.
If you shop at a store that has a store loyalty card, make sure you sign up. Often times you can register the card online to receive additonal discounts and coupons.
