New Price Tags at Fry's

Have you seen the new price tags at Fry's?

Fry's recently introduced a new Low Price Strategy. I was invited to come learn about these new changes last week but was unable to attend. I just received information from them regarding this and would like to pass it on to you.

Fry's initiatied this change because they strive to be the low price leader in Arizona and want to continue to be your neighborhood grocer.

In addition to lowering some prices, the tags have now been changed so it's easier to understand the difference between their everyday low prices and their advertised specials.

Also, don't forget about the other rewards programs offered by Fry's:
- Fuel Rewards - earn Fuel points on every purchase to redeem at select gas stations > LINK
- Seniors Rewards - ages 55+, receive 10% off your purchase on first Wed of each month

- Suns & D-Backs Rewards programs - enroll to earn prizes with select purchases > LINK
- Tully's Coffee in select stores - Buy 5 eligible coffee beverages and get the 6th free
- I-Wireless customers earn Free Minutes + Fuel Points each time you spend $100 in-store
- Loyal Customer Mailings - see this blog post for more info
- E-Coupons offered on thier website > LINK

Check out Punchd - Customer Loyalty Program App for iPhone or Android

Check out this app, Punchd, by Google. Basically it's a frequent customer punch card tracked right on your phone. It's free to download in the Apple or Android market.

After downloading, just log in and it will show you businesses around you that are currently using the program and their frequent customer offers. 

Last night, my family headed to Urban Legends Pizzaworks in Gilbert for dinner and tried it out. It was very easy to use, just logged in, clicked on the businesses' offer and it brought up a scan box. The business then provided me with a QR code to scan and it stored the 'punch' on my phone.

Pretty slick - no more digging through my purse/wallet/car console or wherever else I may have put that little business card sized paper punch card.

Have you tried it out yet? If so, what's your favorite business that has an offer?
