The program is 'a little too complex,' CEO said.
Giant Eagle is ending its Foodperks rewards program, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The last day to earn Foodperks will be Feb. 13 and discounts must be redeemed by May 31. According to a letter obtained by the newspaper, the CEO said customers thought the Foodperks program was "a little too complex." The program gave customers a 1 percent discount on groceries for every 10 gallons of gas purchased at GetGo gas stations. Foodperks began in 2009. Giant Eagle's Fuelperks program will remain. In fact, the Pittsburgh newspaper says the program will be augmented. Fuelperks already gives people 10 cents off per gallon of gas at GetGo stores for every $50 of food they buy at Giant Eagle. Under the new program, GetGo customers will get …

Huntington bank account not required, supermarket owner says.
Giant Eagle is hoping you'll reward its GetGo stores' generosity by bringing a little extra business their way. The supermarket chain is rolling out surcharge-free ATMs at all Northeast Ohio GetGo stores in a partnership with Huntington banks. And with some banks raking in $3 or more for each ATM transaction, the savings could add up for those who use ATMs frequently. Giant Eagle says you don't need to have a Huntington account to use the no-fee ATMs. If your bank assesses fees for using out-of-network ATMs, those may still apply. Of course Huntington hopes you'll consider switching to Huntington if you are paying extra fees. And Giant Eagle hopes you'll grab an extra bag of chips or refreshments with that extra money.
