Plenti, the first U.S.-based loyalty coalition with major brands, today announced the addition of the first grocer to its program, Southeastern Grocers LLC, parent company to BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys and Winn-Dixie. Southeastern Grocers will upgrade their loyalty program by launching Plenti throughout all stores as of April 5. The full roll out follows a successful Plenti launch in Harveys Supermarkets late last year. Plenti, a program operated by American Express, offers members numerous ways to earn points and save on the things they already shop for every day, regardless of the payment method used.
Starting today, customers throughout all BI-LO, Fresco y Más and Winn-Dixie locations can now enroll in BI-LO Rewards with Plenti® or Winn-Dixie Rewards with Plenti® (valid at Winn-Dixie and Fresco y Más stores) both in store and online. As of April 5, customers can begin earning and using points for savings on groceries with Southeastern Grocers, as well as on gas with Exxon™ and Mobil™ stations and at thousands of other online and retail partner locations, including AT&T, Macy's, Chili's, Rite Aid and more.
'At Southeastern Grocers, we are always looking for ways to provide better value to our customers. Our new rewards program with Plenti provides our customers the ability to not only gain savings on gas, but on groceries as well. The new program will therefore offer more ways to earn, more ways to save and even greater flexibility for our customers - thanking and rewarding them for their loyalty,' said Chief Marketing Officer Sharry Cramond, Southeastern Grocers.
'We are thrilled to add Southeastern Grocers as our newest Plenti partner. Since launch, we have committed to expanding our program to brands where our members shop frequently, with a focus on the grocery category,' said Josh Berwitz, president, U.S. Loyalty, American Express. 'With a full rollout of Plenti across all of Southeastern Grocers' popular stores, our members will now have the ability to earn and use points at hundreds of locations on the items they buy most often.'
'As a founding Plenti partner, ExxonMobil understands the power of Plenti - it has brought our customers more value and it has helped grow our business,' said Kim Kemper, US loyalty manager for ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company. 'We are proud to be Plenti's exclusive gas partner and look forward to serving Southeastern Grocers' customers across the Southeast.'
Notes for the Editor:
Southeastern Grocers + Plenti
Starting April 5, Plenti members can earn one Plenti point for every $2 spent at Southeastern Grocers stores, and will earn even more when they buy products with bonus point tags across the store. One thousand points translates to at least $10 in savings, and Plenti members can earn points faster by activating special promotional offers on Plenti.com and by shopping via the Plenti Online Marketplace.
