New Member Rewards Program - Buy 5, Get One Free

Co-op Members can now earn even more free product on 9 staple items every day at New Pi.

In 2019, New Pi launched a virtual punch card system as part of a new Member Rewards program, giving members a variety of items to earn free product on at varying purchase quantities (with the purchase of 4, 5 and 10 items).

Members will now earn free product on all eligible items after just 5 purchases.

New items joining the program include apples (any variety), large white eggs from Farmer’s Hen House, Beeler’s Hickory Smoked Bacon, our house-made grain and salad bowls, Impossible Vegan Burgers, and New Pi brand multi-vitamins in addition to hot coffee, Hansen’s Dairy gallon milks and our house-made hearth and bagged breads that will be carried over from the original program.
