Acme, headquartered in Malvern, Pennsylvania, now accepts programs from the S3 Solution Suite, including Healthy Savings and Healthy Benefits Plus. S3 is a product of Minnesota-based electronic payments company Solutran Inc.
Healthy Savings grants discounts on healthier food choices, while Healthy Benefits Plus provides benefits to spend on over-the-counter medications. Members of these programs in the Northeast can use their benefits at all participating Acme locations.
All program discounts are applied instantly at retail checkout with the single scan of a program app or card. The programs are sponsored by participating health plans and individual employers.
“Acme is proud to partner with these high-value programs” said Jim Perkins, president of Acme. “We aim to offer our customers healthier lifestyle options, and these proven programs improve the affordability of healthier foods as well as over-the-counter medications.”
Acme is the second Albertsons Cos. division to join the network, preceded by Jewel-Osco. Acme has 169 store locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland and Connecticut. S3 programs now are accepted at each store location, providing instant savings to members with the single scan of their card or mobile app at checkout.
“Healthy Savings and Healthy Benefits Plus are designed to improve health, providing instant discounts at no cost to the consumer,” said Chad Kelly, CMO of Solutran, the company behind the S3 Solution Suite. “We are delighted to welcome Acme to our growing network, allowing greater accessibility to all members near their locations.”
