The cartwheel deals suck any more. I rarely use it now. I scan and scan and nothing is on cartwheel. Pointless.
It's funny they could have gone with 1.5% and it wouldn't have been that much more but the psychological effect of there being two numbers instead of one would have made people happier.I love that with cartwheel I can essentially get 5% off almost all market pantry and up and up. And I too am confused how they’re gonna break this to redcard holders, unless they make the 1% available to everyone.
1% also isn’t a very high number. I agree with other people, it should just be like a grocery store where the deals auto apply.
The pilot came to town long after I'd already left Spot, but my experience has been Cartwheel has been offered throughout the piot/"beta". I've been the poor cashiers in the stores in my area have to explain to folks that Circle and the red card can't be used together. The only use I've gotten out of Circle has been the birthday 5% off and dumping my charity votes into a STEM science center. I'd be mad they moved to only a 1% back system. Where's the Red card factor into all this?1%???
That's not even worth pulling out your phone for scanning.
Did the pilot markets for this get rid of Cartwheel while in the testing phase? How did that go over?
Also, basing it just on my purchases gives no incentive for impulse buys. Sometimes I'll see something new on Cartwheel that I've never tried and because of the Cartwheel discount have bought it and given it a go.
