Club Card Complaints

Although supermarkets offering "club cards" or "rewards cards" claim that they're providing savings to customers who participate in their programs, some groups, such as No Cards Shoppers and CASPIAN claim that the supermarkets are really penalizing customers who refuse to use their identity cards by charging inflated prices to these uncooperative shoppers.

Pricing surveys done in the San Jose and Albuquerque areas by these two groups are open to interpretation, so check them out for yourself.
