Kid's Club Card

I just learned about the Whole Foods Kid's Club this morning. I don't know for sure that every store has it. I can't find anything on their website. But, here's what they do at our store -
Your kids can become members of the club for free, without signing any paperwork or anything annoying. They give 'em membership cards. When you come to do your grocery shopping, they get to pick out a free snack. There's a store rack full of goodies that they can pick from - juice box, fruit leather, raisins, sandwich cookies, cereal bars.... Or, they can take their card to the bakery for a free .99 cookie!
I remember being a member of Safeway's Cookie Club when I was a kid. It was so exciting to be able to hand the baker my card & get my cookie. It makes a kid feel so grown-up to have a card. Getting my first library card was also very momentous.

So fun! We finally live relatively close to a WF, so I'll have to look into this - thanks!

Oooh! That was my favorite thing about shopping growing up, Safeway was the best! I am so excited to hear Whole Foods is doing it too! Did you go to the Capitola or Santa Cruz one?

Ooooh I wish we had that around here!
Just found out I'll get to go someplace in a month that has Trader Joe's... I am SO stocking up! :)

Thanks for sharing this, Erin! Now I really want to go to Whole Foods...even if it is 40 minutes away!

P.S. I hope more companies follow suit and offer similar programs.

Good to know! I love when stores give the kids goodies to keep them busy while mom shops! Thanks!
