The program is 'a little too complex,' according to the grocer
Giant Eagle is ending its Foodperks program, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The last day to earn Foodperks will be Feb. 13 and discounts must be redeemed by May 31. According to a letter obtained by the newspaper, the CEO said customers thought the Foodperks program was "a little too complex." The program gave customers a 1 percent discount on groceries for every 10 gallons of gas purchased at GetGo gas stations. Foodperks started in 2009. Giant Eagle's Fuelperks program will remain.
Android version coming soon.
