I was shopping at Kroger last night, because they were having a sale on concentrated orange juice (10/$10). Because Kroger is right near my house, I check the circular each week and if they have a sale on something that makes the price better than I can get somewhere else, I stop in sometime during the week and pick it up. I usually end up going there two to three times a month.
I don’t often spend very much, but I do have a Kroger savings card, because without it you can’t get the special sale prices on any of the merchandise. At our Kroger, if you spend $100 or more in a month, you get a $0.10/gallon discount on gasoline the next time you fill up at their pumps. Their prices on gas are usually competitive, so on the rare occasion I go over the $100 mark in a month, I am sure to do a major gasoline fill-up the next month at Kroger. In fact, the last time I have been able to take advantage of that is when my parents were visiting and they borrowed my card to buy a bunch of snacks, soda, etc for the long car trip home and ended up buying us lunch and dinner there as well.
While I was in one of the self checkouts ringing up my 7 cans of orange juice, a woman in the checkout next to me asked if she could use my Kroger card. I said “Sure!” and scanned my card on her register. I have no idea what she bought, and how much it was, but I hope it was a lot. I’d love to get a gasoline discount next month.
This isn’t the first time that this has happened to me, and I doubt it will be the last. I have no idea why people don’t just sign up for their own Kroger card, it is free and then they can ean their own rewards. But anytime anyone wants to use my card – just ask! I’d be happy to earn rewards and possibly UPromise dollars on what you purchase. Thanks!
