Giant Eagle to End foodperks! Program

The last day to earn the perks will be Feb. 13.

Giant Eagle's popular foodperks! program will end on May 31, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, but the last day to earn the perks will be much sooner—Feb. 13.

The supermarket/gas station chain's fuelperks! program, however, will continue, the P-G reports.

In fact, starting on Thursday, it will be supplemented by a 3-cent discount on gasoline for Advantage Card holders on the occasions when they don't use fuelperks!

Giant Eagle CEO Laura Karet said that the foodperks! program had become "a little too complex."

I was a loyal user of the food perks program. I would save up 20% off and make a large trip, in order to make the most of it. This change makes me wonder how many folks were doing the same and saving upwards of $40 a trip. These programs are usually discontinued because they hurt the bottom line, not because they are too complicated. It reminds me of the time Giant Eagle attempted to discontinue double coupons... Customers complained and they re-instated them. Maybe that's what needs to happen here. Just a thought.
