GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., 2017-Sep-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — Meijer and official home delivery partner Shipt are bringing customers more value when ordering groceries through their popular store-to-door service. The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer is now offering home delivery members who sign up for mPerks the ability to earn rewards for their orders.
Beginning today, Meijer customers who have an mPerks account can link to their Shipt home delivery account and begin earning toward rewards on qualifying purchases. The rewards can be earned and used on items across the entire store. Once earned, customers can redeem during in-store visits at any Meijer location in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Kentucky.
“As popular as our home delivery service is, we know that customers still visit the store and are always looking for new opportunities to save,” said Art Sebastian, Vice President of Digital Shopping for Meijer. “By adding the ability to earn Rewards through home delivery purchases, now customers can earn rewards for all their family’s shopping trips to Meijer—whether they make those shopping trips themselves or make them using Shipt. We look forward to finding new ways to enhance convenience for our home delivery customers.”
The offer to earn rewards as part of their online shopping orders is additional to sales on hundreds of items found through the Shipt app to home delivery customers. When Shipt customers link their mPerks accounts and shop with Shipt, they can visit mPerks.com or the Meijer app to see how the rewards add up toward earning more rewards at Meijer.
Since launching in Detroit last year, Meijer has quickly expanded the personalized service throughout six states where Shipt shoppers hand-pick items from local Meijer stores offering home delivery. The Shipt shoppers then deliver orders within a preferred one-hour time window. Customers sign up for the service and shop online for 55,000 groceries and everyday essentials and perishables. The wide selection of items includes fresh produce, grocery, refrigerated and frozen items as well as pet food, back to school items, and health and beauty care products.
Meijer customers can sign up for Shipt memberships for $99 per year for unlimited deliveries on orders over $35. Delivery is free for orders over $35; a flat $7 delivery fee is added to any orders under $35.
