“WHAT HAPPENS IF A CARD MEMBER DRINKS/EATS PART OF THE ITEM BEFORE REPLACING IT ON A SHELF? HOW IS THIS MITIGATED AND/OR RECORDED?”

Same as in any regular grocery store, cops pick you up at the exit.

I would be outraged if this happens.

Was there for Nets/Celtics last week. Swipe your card to enter, it’s pretty small. If they had beer would be a great place to pop in and out but the closest they have is non-alcoholic beer for $10 each.

It would be sweet if one can use their MR points to make purchases at a higher-than-normal rate (1.5 cpp)… Unlikely, I know, but wouldn’t it be nice as a perk, also bragging rights

Probably more like .5 cpp. But hey the Points Guys will see it as major value!

Stop smoking… people would fly to NYC for this if they offered. They currently offer a redemption rate of 0.6cpp.
