Warning to Morrisons shoppers as supermarket axes More loyalty scheme – Kent Live

Morrisons shoppers are being warned to use their More points or lose them as the supermarket is set to axe its loyalty card system.

The chain said the scheme will be withdrawn in May – seven years after it first launched.

More points will be replaced by a new personalised incentive that will offer “instant” money-off vouchers via its app.

Morrisons said shoppers will no longer be able to collect points in stores and online from May 10.

It warned deadlines to use existing points will be in place until August.

Under the current scheme, shoppers can currently earn five points for every £1 spent, and 5,000 points are then worth £5 to spend as a voucher at the supermarket.

But from May 10 coupons will instead be available via the Morrisons More app.

These can be instantly used by scanning the barcode at the till or by entering the code online.

Anyone without a smartphone can continue to scan their More card at the checkout from May – it will then automatically deduct any coupon savings.

After May 10, the new scheme will launch, giving you 30 days to claim any outstanding points from any previous receipts.

Bear in mind that you cannot add points from more than two receipts in any 14-day period. The deadline for this is June 8.

Morrisons More lets shoppers collect points

Vouchers will be available to request until August 9 – with a 56 day validity.

Any unused vouchers will be redundant after August 9, meaning you won’t be able to use them to save any money on your shop.

In an email to customers, the supermarket said: “With Morrisons More, we are always listening to our valued customers, taking feedback on how we can improve the experience.

“What we’ve heard is that you’d like your rewards to be immediate, including discounts and money off your next shop.

“We also learned that you want to give back to your local community and to support environmental causes by going paper and plastic free wherever possible.”
