Giant Eagle is ending its Foodperks rewards program, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The last day to earn Foodperks will be Feb. 13 and discounts must be redeemed by May 31.

According to a letter obtained by the newspaper, the CEO said customers thought the Foodperks program was "a little too complex."

The program gave customers a 1 percent discount on groceries for every 10 gallons of gas purchased at GetGo gas stations.

Foodperks began in 2009.

Giant Eagle's Fuelperks program will remain. In fact, the Pittsburgh newspaper says the program will be augmented.

Fuelperks already gives people 10 cents off per gallon of gas at GetGo stores for every $50 of food they buy at Giant Eagle.

Under the new program, GetGo customers will get three cents off per gallon even if they haven't accumulated any Fuelperks discounts.

Twinsburg has a GetGo station on Hadden Road and a Giant Eagle grocery store on Darrow Road.
