Kroger Community Rewards Program – 2013

Due to the implementation of Kroger’s new privacy policy to NOT share personal customer information, we will no longer be able to allocate the amount of money based on what you spend to your scout’s account.  The money received from Kroger will all go to the Troop general fund, just like the Spaghetti dinner proceeds do.  There are still other opportunities to earn money for your scout account like the fall popcorn sale and spring flower sale.

Troop 200 participates in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. This program is used to help our scouting families earn money that will go into the Troop 200 Fund.


The Kroger Community Rewards Program is a yearly program where they pay money to the participating groups. The groups receive quarterly payments for cycles ending in January, April, July and October. The amount Kroger pays out is a share of the total spent by ALL participating groups during that quarter. As such, we never know how much will be received each time. If you want more specific information on the program, go to

When we do receive a payment from Kroger, it includes a detailed report showing the Kroger card number, name and amount earned for each person from our single group. We then add this money to the Troop 200 Account.  To participate, you must have a Kroger Rewards Card AND register that card at

EACH YEAR you must select Troop 200 as the group you want to earn funds for. You can make this selection starting April 1st of each year. If you don’t choose by May 1st, your purchases won’t count until you do make a selection. If you aren’t sure, check your online account with Kroger.

You can only change your group every 6 months. Friends, family, and/or coworkers can register to help earn extra funds for the Troop.   The group you have selected should show on the bottom of the Kroger receipt.

Per Kroger guidelines, the following purchases are NOT counted towards you quarterly spending total: alcohol, tobacco, government‐assisted pharmacy expenses, postage stamps, Kroger gift cards, Green Dot Prepaid Cards, gift certificates, bottle deposits, lottery and promotional tickets, fuel, fuel center purchases, office services and Sales Tax. It DOES include out‐of‐pocket co‐pays for non‐government‐assisted pharmacy programs.
