Have you seen the new Kroger kiosk in your stores called “Scan, Bag, Go”? It reminds me of that great experience of doing your wedding or baby registry, except you have to pay for everything in the end!! HA!! Well, my store in Sandusky, Ohio just rolled the new program out and let me tell you it’s awesome! Kroger’s in-house research and development team invented and built the Scan, Bag, Go technology, because they’re awesome like that. Scan, Bag, Go allows customers to use a wireless handheld scanner or the Scan, Bag, Go app on their personal device to scan and bag products as they shop for a quicker, seamless checkout experience. If this isn’t the FUTURE, then I don’t know what is! I want to think that Kroger sat down and said, “So, let’s not shop in the stone age anymore! Let’s create the future of shopping!”. And that’s just what they did.
In January, 2018 Kroger Co. announced that it will introduce its new and exciting Scan, Bag, Go shopping technology in 18 operating divisions, making the service available this year to customers at 400 stores. This is was already SO exciting for me, but when I saw it in MY store I couldn’t contain my joy! You can see JUST how easy it was for me…
Scan, Bag, Go helps to create a personalized experience for customers throughout their shopping trip, allowing them to view and download digital coupons, keep a running total of their order, and view the current week’s sales ad.
Scan, Bag, Go customers currently visit a store’s self-checkout area to provide payment. Customers will soon have the ability to provide payment directly through the app, allowing shoppers to exit the store even quicker. There is no charge to use this program at Kroger.
Once you finish up your shopping, you can head out to self-checkout kiosks where valid coupons are calculated and applied to your shopping, followed by a final total that is instantly calculated. Eventually, shoppers like you and me will not even need to use these kiosks altogether as they will be able to pay directly through the app. How is THAT for in and out??
I honestly had so much fun as I “scanned” my way through the store. And I was happy to see extra bags displayed throughout as I ended up purchasing more than I originally planned. Hey, you can’t say you haven’t done the same! “Just going in for one thing hun!” Happens every time doesn’t it? The checkout process was super easy and all of my loaded digital coupons came off as expected. I will definitely be utilizing this again soon. Like, tomorrow. And every day after that.
By the end of the year, Scan, Bag, Go will be available at select locations in the following divisions: Atlanta; Central; Cincinnati; Columbus; Dallas; Delta; Dillons; Fred Meyer; Fry’s; Houston; King Soopers; Louisville; Michigan; Mid-Atlantic; Nashville; Ralphs; Smith’s; and QFC.
If you have this option in store right now, for a limited time you can get $5.00 off your order $35.00 or more in the same transaction.
The Scan, Bag, Go app is free and available to download via iTunes and Google Play.
