(Madison, WI): For anyone who likes to be a savvy shopper – Hy-Vee is now making it easier with their cash conversion feature. Hy-Vee is piloting this new feature at all Madison area locations, now through August 31, 2021.
There are a lot of reasons why Hy-Vee is a favorite for many families — in addition to carrying one of the widest selections of groceries/specialty items in the area; they also make it super convenient with their online shopping offerings and grocery delivery programs. Their bakery can offer birthday cakes or desserts for any occasion (they are delicious and reasonably priced) and their floral department also has something for every occasion. From organic items, their meat and deli, to every day needs – Hy-Vee likely has it in their aisles.
And as an Iowa native — I love that I can find Whitey’s ice cream at Hy-Vee (it’s the only place locally that carries this Quad Cities brand!).
Hy-Vee is employee owned and is known for their customer service (a helpful smile in every aisle…) and for treating their employees really well. So if you are looking for some work – or if you have a high school student, this is a great place for them to apply.
I could go on about the reasons I love Hy-Vee – but will get to the focus of this post which is their Cash Conversion (and yes, that’s yet another reason to love Hy-Vee!).
Think of it as a way to earn ‘free money’ simply by purchasing items that you planned to purchase anyway!
Loyalty customers are now able to “convert” their Fuel Saver reward balance into store credit with a 1 to 10 conversion rate. Fuel Saver + Perks Program is FREE and separate from Hy-Vee Plus.
For every $0.01 in Fuel Saver you have, you will get $0.10 in store credit. (i.e. $1.00 in Fuel Saver would convert to $10 in store credit – useable immediately).
When the pilot ends (on August 31) the customer will no longer be able to convert their fuel saver cents to store credit, but any store credit balance will remain on their account until they use it or it expires.
The more people that try this out and give Hy-Vee feedback; the more likely it will be to come back permanently in the fall! So give it a try and share your thoughts… because who doesn’t love earning ‘free money’ on items you are buying anyway?!
