Grocery Cards


Q. How do I use my grocery card?

A. The reloadable card comes preloaded with a very minimal amount of money. You must first load your card, at the grocery customer service desk or the check stand, with any amount up to $500. The card can then be used like a gift card. The funds will be deducted from your card with every transaction and your balance will be printed on the bottom of your receipt. You can reload your card as often as you wish.

Q. Do I have to go to the customer service desk every time I load my card?

A. No. While you can go to the customer service desk if you prefer, you can also present your reloadable card to the cashier just before  you check out. You must ask the cashier before they begin scanning items. Then it’s simple. Add funds to the card. Then check out and pay with those added funds. Loading your card only adds seconds onto your transaction. But you cannot let your card carry a zero balance for over 90 days or the 5% no longer goes to BCSIS. So if in doubt just go to customer service and ask if it is still a valid card. If not we are GLAD to give you a new one! Better to be safe than sorry!

Q. Is my King Soopers card only accepted at our neighborhood King Soopers store?

A. No. All King Soopers, City Markets and Kroger-affilitated stores across the U.S. will accept this card! On the back of the card, in fine print, is a full list of participating stores. Throughout the school year and over the summer… you can take your card with you and use it all over the country. You can send a card to Michigan for grandma to use at Kroger, and your cousin in Seattle can use one to shop at Fred Meyer. It is an easy way to get your friends and relatives to earn money for BCSIS!

Q. Can I get a card while I’m at the grocery store?

A. No. Grocery stores provide our school with cards that are linked specifically to our school. Contact Laima Haley or Linn Wilder to get a new card at any time.

Q. Am I making the donation to the school, or is the grocery store?

A. King Soopers has created the Neighborhood Rewards Program to give back to the community they serve. They reward your business by making a donation to your charitable cause… in this case, BCSIS. For anyone who already shops, this program is a great way to help financially support your school!

Q. Do I still get King Soopers loyalty points if I use my reloadable card?

A. Yes, loyalty points with King Soopers are connected with your frequent shopper card. Just show this card while you check out like you always do and you will continue to accumlate King Soopers frequent shopper points.

Q. Can I use my credit card to reload the grocery card? Because I like to earn reward points while shopping with my credit card.

A. Yes, you can use your preferred credit card to reload your grocery card and continue to earn frequent flyer miles or reward points, while at the same time earning cash back for BCSIS!

Q. I went to reload my card at the store and they told me it had been deactivated… what’s the problem?

A. If a card has a zero balance for 90 days, it will become inactive. You will not be able to use the card. To start participating in the program again, you will need to get a new card from the school’s front office.

Q. What if I lose my  reloadable card and it has a balance on it? Have I just lost all that money?

A. No. Keep a record of your reloadable card number. If you lose your card, simply visit the Customer Service desk and they can transfer all the money on your reloadable card back to your credit card.

Q. My spouse or partner sometimes shops, can they get a card too?

A. Yes, you can get as many cards as you want to give to your spouse/partner, grandparents, neighbors, etc. The more people participating in the program, the quicker those dollars add up!
