    In order to receive Points on your purchases, be sure to use your registered mobile number or scan your Member Card (in the Vons for U mobile app) at checkout:

    So, for each dollar you spend on groceries or pharmacy products at Vons, you will earn one point and two points for every dollar you spend on gift cards. Once you reach 100 points, you can redeem them for only one “reward” from a selection of tiers, offering you the flexibility to choose your own reward.

    Purchase reward thresholds (if any) will be calculated based upon customer’s final price before deductions for any manufacturer coupons.

    Rewards can be redeemed for discounts on gas at participating fuel stations (Texaco or Chevron) or for certain grocery items from Vons store locations and mobile apps or websites. To redeem Rewards for groceries, go to the Rewards section of their website, or follow these steps in the app:

    1. Tap “Rewards” icon on the top menu bar or tap “Member” icon on the bottom right of your screen, and verify that you have Rewards available. (It should say 1 Reward, 2 Rewards, etc.)
    2. Tap “See All” or “Redeem” to view your redeemable rewards
    3. Tap “Clip” to use the desired Reward

    Once clipped, the applicable Rewards will be deducted from your Vons for U account. When you shop the selected Rewards items and input your member (phone) number or scan your member QR code at checkout, your Rewards will be automatically applied.

    Want To Split Your Rewards?

    If you have multiple Rewards, you may redeem some or all of them in an Albertsons Companies grocery Vons store, mobile app, or website for discounted or free grocery items. You may then use your remaining Rewards at a participating fuel station (up to the maximum amount allowable at that station).

    Do Points & Rewards Expire?

    Yes, Points convert to Rewards in increments of 100 (100 Points = 1 Reward). At the end of each month, any Points less than 100 will expire. Rewards expire at the end of the month following the one in which they were earned.

    Coupon Stacking at Vons

    You want to save even more at Vons? Inside the Vons app, you can find digital coupons (Vons for U coupons). You can also use coupons from the Sunday newspaper. Whichever you use, make sure to follow these rules:

    • The coupon in not expired
    • One coupon per item
    • You have the correct items to use the coupon on

    Please note that Vons for U coupons might be store coupons or they might be manufacturer coupons. You must know the difference here because they don’t allow stacking a digital Vons for U manufacturer coupon with a paper manufacturer coupon! But you can stack a digital or paper Vons for U store coupon with a paper manufacturer coupon.

    How to Recognize Manufacturer Coupons in the Vons App?

    If it’s a manufacturer coupon, it’ll say “Coupon Center”, and if it’s a store coupon, it’ll say “Personalized Deal” when you click on the full digital coupon offer in their app. If you really want to get into the details, you can always check the fine print on the coupon. If there’s a physical address for the manufacturer listed, you’ll know it’s a manufacturer coupon and not a store coupon.

    As an added bonus to your savings, you can use rebate offers like Ibotta and Fetch at Vons!
