Giant Eagle Wouldn't Let Me Buy Groceries...WTF?!
So my wife and I were having a couple friends over last night for dinner, we were making Mexican food and I had forgotten the tortillas. With 30 minutes left before people were to show up, I ran out to my local Giant Eagle to pick up a few remaining items for the dinner.

When I got to the register I was told that because I did NOT have a Giant Eagle Card, the register would not allow me to scan my items. They proceeded to almost scorn me for not having a membership card, and finally asked if I wanted them to scan their "courtesy card" so I could buy the items. I told them no...to which they said I was out of luck and would have to return the items to the shelves...

We used taco shells instead of tortillas last night.

What in the hell is with this?! Has anyone else had this issue, or know why they would outright refuse me service because I didn't have a Giant Eagle Card? This was definitely a first for me...

Don't know what store your using but I have gone to two different ones and have never had to show the card. The only thing I ever been told is you wont get your discounts that you have to pre-loaded on your card at their website or fuel perks.

When I was a kid (round 5) I lived on Pusey ave (pe uze ey).........I called it Pussy ave and my mom and my sisters and my aunts would giggle :) so to make them giggle more I would say it every chance I got :)

Then when others would ask where I lived I would tell the men - pe uz ey - but to women I'd answer the right way -"pussy," and guess what - yep - every time.

Unfortunately I moved and no longer have the opportunity to make the girls giggle :)

It's a food club, like Sam's Club is. You have to buy a membership to buy stuff from there. I think it's BS!

Yeah after they told me to return the items to the shelves I dropped the hand-basket I had been holding the items in and walked out. I was completely shocked that I would get such flack for not having their damn membership card...

Giant Eagle is a grocery store chain. They don't have memberships. They have an "advantage" card for savings.

Membership and "advantage" cards are synonyms in my book. For those not familiar with the Giant Eagle grocery chain, I thought it easier to describe it as a membership card.

A lot of grocery stores are doing this now, turning into food clubs so they can clique the membership. And you have to pay a membership fee to join. Fuck them!

You were not unable to make the purchases. You wanted the discount on the items without using the card and when offered the store card you declined. You were still able to purchase the items without getting a discount.

People without advantage cards are able to shop there. You're lying about not being able to shop there without one.

...wait, I'm confused, because that's indeed not what I said...

I don't use Giant Eagle "Advantage" Cards because I'm not comfortable with the idea of a large grocery store tracking what I buy on a week to week basis. Yes, that means I don't get the discounts, but it means I get to preserve my freedom, so that was worth a premium in my grocery bill. This hadn't ever been a problem in the past, until last night when I tried to buy tortillas and green chilies and was told that because I didn't have an advantage card I wouldn't be allowed to buy the items. I was offered the chance to use the store "courtesy card", but on principle alone didn't feel like I should have to. When I refused their "courtesy card" swipe, they told me there wasn't anything else they could do, and that I should feel free to put the items back on the shelves, to which I responded by dropping the items and walking out.

Douche.

Around here they use the card as an incentive.

You only get the sale/discount price if you use their card.


And if not you have to pay extra.
