Coborn's along with Walgreens, Target and several other major retailers are moving into the future by offering paperless coupons. Kevin Hurd is the Communications Specialist with Coborn's. He says their More Rewards program has led customers to drop their scissors.
"It allows are guests, when they come into the store, when they purchase certain items, they get a fuel discount on that item. Those fuel discounts can accumulate and it can be used to save you money at the pump."
To make it more convenient, Hurd says shoppers have the option to use the More Rewards App.
"There's a lot of power within the app, the weekly shopping lists, you can look at items that are on sale, you can view your personalized ad flier right in the app, really a lot of power right in the palm of your hand when you're shopping in our stores."
The personalized ad flier gives More Rewards members a list of items that they commonly buy and shows them if they are on sale.
