Giant Eagle Ending Foodperks, Expanding Fuelperks

The program is 'a little too complex,' CEO said.

Giant Eagle is ending Foodperks, 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 began in 2009.

Giant Eagle's Fuelperks program will remain. In fact, the Pittsburgh newspaper says the program will be augmented.

Fuelperks already gives people 10 cents off per gallon of gas at GetGo stores for every $50 of food they buy at Giant Eagle.

Under the new program, GetGo customers will get three cents off per gallon even if they haven't accumulated any Fuelperks discounts.

Yes I'm going to miss it. I like getting a big order and getting the max of 20% off my bill which was usually $60!

I will definitely miss foodperks. Every month I saved $60 off groceries because of the amount of gas I purchase monthly. I will just go back to the way I did things before foodperks and buy gas and groceries at cheaper locations.

What in the world is complicated about it? It's just Giant Eagles excuse to quit letting people save money. The cost of food is going way up and now this. The extra percentage off helped. What's next they'll get rid of coupons too.
