Why can I not earn points on certain items?
We cannot reward certain purchases such as beer, wine, or tobacco because of state law, so points cannot be earned when purchasing these products or redeemed on these purchases. Please note that United Supermarkets, LLC, reserves the right to exclude additional items at any time during the program. Points may be deducted for the equivalent amount of any returns or credits. Points are earned on out-of-pocket pharmacy costs (for example, prescription co-pays) only. Points are not applicable to prescription drugs paid for in whole or in part by any insurance plan, federal, or state government programs (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid).
