Albertsons Companies Inc. has introduced Albertsons Pay, a contactless checkout experience available through its just for U loyalty app. Albertsons Pay provides shoppers with a secure and contact-free way to pay, use discounts and earn rewards, according to a press release.
Customers can choose one of two contactless pay options: Albertson’s direct, which shoppers pay through their bank, or Albertson’s Cash, which is a stored value account that can be pre-loaded and used across all of Albertson’s stores.
After setup, customers show the QR code in their just for U app at checkout to apply discounts and 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. In addition, customers can link to Apple Pay and Google Pay within the app.
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.
