Points at kosher supermarket
« on: August 30, 2012, 05:59:12 PM »
Hey,

When a cc gives points for spending at a supermarket like the freedom or amex blue cash are kosher supermarkets included? say I go to pomegranite in flatbush or wesley kosher or rockland kosher in monsey or any jewish store do they know that its a supermarket and will I get the extra points for that? Can anyone confirm that they do?

Cute. How do they know that 'rockland kosher' is a supermarket and not some random jewish kosher store. Maybe only big names or names that say 'groccery' or'market' are included

I once asked Chase, and was told that it depends whether or not the supermarkets elects to be classified with the cc company as one. Co-op in Lakewood is a supermarket, and I know a few others are as well.

I'm pretty sure grocery stores get a better merchant rate. so it's safe to assume that they're all properly listed as grocery stores

From my personal experience at both of the mentioned stores, Rockland Kosher & Pomegranate earned me double Amex points.

+1

I was told they choose their category when setting up their merchant account.
