Walmart Serves Up a Fresh Food Loyalty Program In an attempt to get customers to eat healthier, Walmart and HumanaVitality have developed a unique way to incentivize people to do so. The two companies launched a first-of-its-kind program called Vitality HealthyFood, whereby Walmart offers a 5% discount on produce items to HumanaVitality members. The program is set to begin October 15. Starting then, shoppers will be able to determine which foods qualify for the discount by looking for the “Great for You” icon, which, as the name implies, was created to designate foods that are part of a healthy diet. The effort is the first national program where a major retailer and healthcare company have come together to incentivize people to eat better through savings on healthier foods, according to Walmart.

GameStop Offering Wii U Wait List to PowerUp Rewards Members GameStop recently stopped taking pre-orders for the Nintendo Wii U due to the overwhelming demand for the product. Instead, the video game giant has set up a wait list for PowerUp Rewards members. The new wait list program allows PowerUp Rewards members to sign up to be notified when additional quantities of the Wii U become available for purchase after the Nov. 18 launch. Consumers secure a place on the wait list by visiting their local GameStop store and signing up as a PowerUps Rewards member on the spot if necessary. Members in both free and paid tiers are eligible for this wait list.
