Changes to Kroger Card Program
To all CKCS Members and Friends:
We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program.
The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization
without dues increases.
But, Kroger has made changes in the way that the program works that will take effect on September 1.
Kroger now requires all those who wish to have their spending at Kroger generate donations for CKCS to do two things:
1) get a Kroger Plus Card and
2) register on the Kroger website with CKCS as your donation choice.
Step 1 - Most everyone already has a Kroger Plus Card (it has a picture of a tomato on it),
but if not you can get one instantly at the office counter in any Kroger store or
we have a few at the CKCS front desk.
Step 2 - Use the Kroger website to register your Plus Card number and choose
"Central Kentucky Computer Society" as your organization.
Detail instructions for Step 2:
a) go to https://www.kroger.com
b) click on Community Rewards
c) click on "Create an Account" to enroll
d) enter your information: including email address and a new password for this account
e) click Create Account
f) enter your Kroger Plus card number - it is on the both the wallet card and the keyring card
g) Click "Enroll now for Community Rewards"
h) enter the organization name "Central Kentucky Computer Society" or the CKCS number which is 11119
Note that if you get all this correct, then when you make purchases at Kroger your checkout receipts
will have Central Kentucky Computer Society written at the bottom.
Your existing Kroger Gift cards can still be used to buy groceries but after
September 1 will no longer generate donations to CKCS.
