Fundraising

Arapahoe County 4-H Shooting Sports Club Community Rewards 

    

**Changes**

There are some exciting new changes coming to the program! We have moved to a new system of redeeming the shoppers rewards used on common grocery items we all buy every week at King Soopers and City Market. We will no longer have to remember to pre-load the cards before shopping and can receive the rewards by simply using your King Soopers or City Market Loyalty Card. This should make using the program easier for everybody as the loyalty card will link the community rewards automatically at the register.

We want to make sure everybody understands what to do, and how it works. Additionally, we want folks to know their balance on the pre-loaded cards are still usable but not re-loadable. Now’s the time to use them up and move over to the new system.

That process looks like this. Login to your King Soopers loyalty card account and go to the community rewards page. Once there, you need only to enter our special code (RY536) to link your King Soopers Loyalty Card to the 4H Arapahoe County Shooting Sports Program! Once connected you will start earning money for the Shooting Sports Program on your next purchase.

To link your existing account, or to open and link a new loyalty account, use these websites below.

  • For King Soopers Stores – go to http://www.kingsoopers.com
  • For City Market Stores – go to http://www.citymarket.com

REMEMBER, purchases will not count for your organization until after your participants register their loyalty card.
Participants must swipe their registered King Soopers or City Market loyalty card or use the phone number that is related to their registered King Soopers or City Market loyalty card when shopping for each purchase to count.

Thank you for your participation in the program. For help or to ask questions please reach out to Kevin Pflug: kevinkpflug@gmail.com
