Well I have some exciting news for you Raley’s shoppers! Reader Jessica first sent in the following email:
I recently made a purchase at my local raley’s and was asked to “Swipe my Something Extra Card for additional savings” i was intrigued so i looked it up. This page was recently added on Aug 16th!! - Jessica (Oddly the page is down right now though…)
Since I don’t have a Raley’s nearby she was sweet enough to head back to hunt down some more information for us! This is what she discovered…
I was able to speak with the warehouse manager at my local Bel Air regarding the new card system. The employees have had access to it for about a month and they anticipate another month before it’s available to the public, they are still in the training process. When you sign up you’ll receive 200 points and once you reach 500 points they will mail you (either email or mail, not sure) a coupon for either a percent off your next order of a coupon in the form of “$10 Off WYB $50 worth of groceries” something to that effect. The card will also track your purchases and you will be emailed coupons in conjunction to the items you frequently purchase. Sounds great to me! I look forward to using the card! Hope this email was helpful, have a nice day! – Jessica
On another note, Kathy our Raley’s Store Expert says the Pittsburg, CA location is closing. This is very sad, but you should know that also means they’ll very likely be having a HUGE clearance sale in the next few weeks.
So, I visited the Raley’s across the street from me. They were just told that this location will be shutting down in October. It’s pretty sad since this Raley’s has been in Pittsburg for 35 years. I remember going there as a kid. Anyway, I asked them about their loyalty card. They had no idea about it. They mentioned that corporate didn’t fill them in because of the shut down. – Kathy
That’s all we have so far, but if you hear something else or have any experience with this card please let us know! Thanks again Jessica for sharing this information with us!
