I wouldn’t normally write about something so local, but I find Kwik Trip’s new rewards program so nice that I couldn’t help it.
Kwik Trip’s old reward program didn’t really work for me. I don’t know if there were rewards offered for anything other than purchasing milk, but because no one ever reminded me to use my punch card, I forgot it. I never once earned a reward over all the years that I’ve shopped at Kwik Trip.
The new program provides you with a swipable card that automatically adds those new purchases. And you can earn rewards on more than milk (or ice cream). For example, you can earn a freebie after every 15th visit or get every 11th pizza, coffee, Hershey candy, Starbucks drink or Bai beverage free.
I enjoy the pizza and occasionally Karuba coffee, so this works out pretty well.
You’ll need to register your card once you get it in store, and the site will prompt you to choose the freebie you earn after 15 visits. The options include
- Fountain drinks
- Karuba Gold Espresso
- Fresh fruit
- Cheeseburger or grilled sandwich
- Glazer or donut
It also looks like you can save 3¢ off per gallon of gas with qualifying purchases, so that’s pretty awesome.
One of the new features is gas rewards based on your in-store purchases. Qualifying items will earn you money off your fuel bill.
There’s a section dedicated to coupons that you can send to your card. It looks like they’ll switch periodically. This morning, I received an email about a coupon for free yogurt that appears to work as soon as I swipe my card without having to send the coupon to my card directly. So keeping emails on pays. However, I do find that they send a few too many emails and will have to look into how I can reduce them and only receive the messages that I want.
Still, it’s impressive how many ways they want to help shoppers save.
