  • Ralphs Update 9/2/11


    I had an epic trip to Ralphs this morning, and discovered two things: (1) they are still offering 4x the Rewards points on gift card purchases; and (2) cashiers haven’t a clue what to do if a gift card fails to activate – one tried to convince me to leave the store with $35 worth of stuff after she’d charged me $120. It took over half an hour for the manager to sort things out (thank goodness my son was at his absolutest cutest and most patient! plus I only had one with me). In the heat of the moment, I promised myself I’d stay away from Ralphs for a while and do all of my shopping at Vons/Pavilions, but this was the first time this has ever happened in all times I’ve ever bought gift cards, and a 9% discount on stuff I’d be buying anyway is really tough to pass up. (I get 5% back from American Express, plus the 4% back via Ralphs Rewards.)
