As the holidays approach, I'm already thinking about my holiday menus. And, by now, you all know how much I love my local Giant Eagle Market District's great selection and services. Today, I'm here to tell you about their new and improved Giant Eagle Perks program! Not only do I get discounts on GetGo’s gas and prescription copays, Curbside Express orders and giftcards, now I also can redeem my points on up to 20% off my total grocery bill or up to a free tank of gas! (Perks accumulated beyond the current price of fuel or above 20% may be used on a future shopping trip.) Plus, I get to choose whether I want to use my perks at the checkout or for gas at GetGo! How handy is that for this time of year when entertaining and travel expenses can get out of control?

Earn Giant Eagle Perks on many purchases throughout the store! 

Not only did I pick up all the ingredients for this soup at Giant Eagle Market District, but I also shopped for gift cards.  With the purchase of our second home in Florida and my son's recent move to his own home, I'll be shopping for household items this month.  So, I picked up a Target and a Bed, Bath and Beyond gift card so I can stock up on my Giant Eagle Perks at the same time!  Giant Eagle has a large selection of gift cards perfect to give as gifts or to use for your personal purchases and they all earn you perks!
