Explorers and Parents: changes to the King Soopers Card

on Tue, 03/19/2019 - 13:23

We have just learned that the King Soopers Reward program that we have been using for the past few years will be changing. Effective April 1, the reloadable gift card program will be changed to just using your King Soopers Loyalty card. This change will make your support for the Explorer Post even easier.

What this means to you: If you currently have a King Sooper Loyalty card that you use when checking out after shopping, you can enroll your card on line by going to kingsoopers.com, click on Savings and Rewards tab and then King Soopers Community Rewards on the drop down, click enroll now. Sign in with your email and password and then search for LI881 (Colorado Springs Fire Explorer Program) and click on our name. That’s it. Every time you shop and enter your loyalty card or phone number the Post benefits.

Don’t have a Loyalty Card? We are going to help you get set up. Ms. Shannon will keep you informed on how and when this is going to take place. We can also do this for friends and other family members.

The biggest change is at the fuel pump. Because Loyalty card holders get a discount in the price of gas, the Post will not receive any rewards from Loyalty card use at the gas stations.

Your current reloadable card can still be used. In fact, you should load your card before March 31 and use it to pay for groceries in April or later this year. The money does not go away. But, be sure to use your Loyalty card (phone number) once you enroll in the new program.

We certainly appreciate all your support for the Post through this program. We hope you will continue to participate. We know that there will be questions, so don’t hesitate to ask. You can contact:
