Oops! I forgot to renew my Fred Meyer Community Rewards!

It’s an age old story. You’ve done it, I’ve done it – and we’ll both do it again.

So, a few months ago (or, maybe … longer?), Fred Meyer sent out a notice telling us all that we would need to renew our Fred Meyer Community Rewards and re-link it to the Non-Profit of my choice. “Oh,” said I, “That’s a little odd. Why would they want me to re-choose the non-profit instead of just continuing until I say not to? Oh, well. I guess, since I have to, I’ll do it …. later.”

Well, here I am, reading my email, I come across an email from Fred Meyer and I think, huh. Did I ever renew ARROAutism as my chosen non-profit to receive donations? How do I even find out. It’s raining outside, and I should probably be doing something else right now, cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry, or, something, but, I’d really rather postpone those things, so, yeah – right now, seems like a great time! And, since it is, I find my way to this site :


And, lo and behold, I find a whole page of info. It’s almost too much, but I waded my way through it, and documented what I found so that I could share it with you, and make the whole process much easier (and faster)!

Just four easy steps

Okay, it’s more like six steps, if you include logging in, and the confirmation page. But, really, it’s four steps – which should take about five minutes.

Step 1

Login on the Fred Meyer Rewards Website at : http://fredmeyer.com

You should now see your account summary screen and the text “Your enrollment in the Community Rewards Program has been updated. Thank you for participating!” And, given the success of this program, we couldn’t agree more.

Success! Your Enrollment in the Community Rewards Program has been updated. Thank you


Just 5 minutes

Okay, so, it took me longer than that. Actually, considerably longer. But that’s why I put this together. Hopefully you can take a look at this, know exactly where to go and it will take you about 5 minutes. If you ever want to see just how much money this program generates for us, simply through your normal, every day purchases, just check our donation page at http://arroautism.org/donate .

Thanks so much for taking the time, and for your support. We’re here to make a positive difference for Autism Families in Oregon, and we couldn’t do it without you. And, now that I’ve sat down and done my bit, hopefully you’ll take a few minutes to do the same.
