Boise, Idaho-based Albertsons Co. has introduced Albertsons Pay, a new zero-touch checkout experience available through the updated Just for U loyalty app. Albertsons Pay provides shoppers with a safe, secure and contact-free way to pay, use discounts and earn rewards all at the same time.

The new technology is available in all Albertsons Cos. stores, including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, Star-Market, Acme, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets and Carrs.

“Easy, fast and zero-touch checkout. That’s the bottom line with Albertsons Pay,” said Susan Morris, Albertsons EVP and COO. “Albertsons Pay combines your Just for U discounts, rewards and payments in one incredibly easy contactless transaction.”

Albertsons Pay is available to customers through the updated Just for U app. Customers can choose one of two new contactless pay options:

  • Albertsons Direct: A safe and secure way for shoppers to pay through their bank; or
  • Albertsons Cash: A stored value account that can be pre-loaded and used across all Albertsons Cos. stores.

After setup, customers simply show the QR code in their Just for U app at checkout to apply their discounts, earn rewards and securely pay for their groceries.

This new contactless pay option complements existing NFC-enabled tap-to-pay options with debit and credit cards, which is available in all Albertsons Cos. stores. In addition, customers will also find a link to Apple Pay and Google Pay within the Just for U app for easy access to contactless credit and debit transactions.

Customers also can continue to support local charities through Albertsons Pay’s donation option. The generosity of Albertsons Cos. customers continues to be an important source of healthy meals for those in need in local communities. Together, Albertsons Cos. and its customers have raised nearly $100 million for community hunger relief in 2020, including more than $44 million provided by customers at checkout.

Albertsons Cos. operates 2,252 retail food and drug stores with 1,726 pharmacies, 402 associated fuel centers, 22 dedicated distribution centers and 20 manufacturing facilities. It operates stores across 34 states and the District of Columbia under 20 banners including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, Acme, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets, Pavilions, Star Market, Haggen and Carrs.
