Mary-Conner-PoolWant free groceries?  If so, on April 5th Winn Dixie is replacing its Fuel Perks program with Winn-Dixie Reward + Plenti.  Customers will be able to earn points buying groceries at Winn-Dixie or spending money at any Plenti reward partner.  You can earn points by:

  • Switching to AT&T
  • Buying gasoline at any Exxon or Mobile station
  • Buying goods at Macy’s and many other online retailers
  • Dining out at participating local restaurants

The Plenti reward program was launched by American Express.  For every 1,000 points your earn you receive $10 or more.  There are two ways to earn points:  1) shopping at participating partners and 2) activating participating offers in advance on the Plenti rewards website.

Winn-Dixie is one of the newest partners to join the program.  After accumulating your Plenti rewards, now you can use those points at Winn-Dixie to receive free groceries.  Who doesn’t want free groceries?  Winn-Dixie will still offer its sale prices to customers who have a Winn-Dixie Plenti card and the points are good for two years.  The current Fuel Perks program offered by Winn-Dixie would expire in a short amount of time so being able to use your Plenti points for up to two years is a huge benefit.

According to a recent article in the Montgomery Advertiser, during the test phase of Winn-Dixie’s new program, one woman used her Plenti card by making online purchases during the holidays and earned enough points to receive $120 of free groceries at Winn-Dixie.  The Plenti rewards work the opposite way too, if you purchase groceries at Winn-Dixie and use your Plenti reward card, you can use the points collected to purchase items from other participating Plenti partners.

Personally, I have been using the Plenti card for about a year and I love the program.  It allows me to earn money when I spend money with one of the participating Plenti partners.  I have mostly used my points at Macy’s since it is my favorite place to shop.  Now, I will be able to earn points when I shop at Winn-Dixie too.  This weekend I received $25 off a purchase by using my Plenti reward points.

On April 5th, you can receive your Winn-Dixie Plenti reward card at any Winn-Dixie location or online.  If you already have a plenty rewards card, then you can use that at any Winn-Dixie location.
