I just got off the phone with a representative from Dominick’s regarding shoppers having issues with the Just For U discounts not coming off their cards. Anyone who signed up for and unsuccessfully loaded Just For U offers prior to today will have a $5 bonus discount loaded to their Just For U account for their next shopping trip to Dominick’s to make up for the issues (apparently whether you experienced any issues or not.)
Earlier this week, one of my readers had posted that their store stated the discounts were not coming off because Just For U was only intended for store employees — that seemed a bit ridiculous as Just For U was being promoted on the front page of Dominicks.com. However, it turns out that the employee wasn’t far off (and I owe an apology to the reader who posted this!)
Evidently, Just For U was supposed to roll out only for Dominick’s employees over the weekend to give them time to try and test the system before releasing it to the general public.
However, someone took the campaign live for everyone, and many people complained that their discounts were not coming off. It was Dominick’s intention (again, according to the rep I spoke with) that only store employees receive the discount during this interim period, but since it was taken live to everyone, they are issuing a $5 credit to anyone who signed up and loaded offers prior to today.
Again, if you signed up and unsuccessfully loaded offers for Just For U over the weekend, you should now have an extra $5 discount attached to your Fresh Values card to make up for the confusion. If you have not yet signed up for Just For U, signing up today will not add this bonus $5 discount.
Just For U is a set of electronic discounts tailored to your own, individual purchase history at Dominick’s. If you have not yet signed up, activate your discounts at Dominicks.com by clicking “Just For U.” New Just For U subscribers will currently receive a free dozen carton of Lucerne eggs for registering.
