Gift cards from Fry’s and Bashas’ grocery stores are a year-round program which helps us raise funds while you do your grocery and other shopping.
- Participation in the grocery cards program costs you nothing more than you already spend at the grocery stores that issue the cards. You get dollar-for-dollar what you pay in.
- Both cards are ordered through The Academy. Each card starts with $10 on it and you recharge it as often as necessary. Then use the card to make purchases at these stores.
- Fry's and Bashas' give The Academy 6% of every dollar you load onto your card. This is how we benefit from the program.
- Fry's cards are accepted at Fry’s grocery stores, Fry's Marketplace, and all other Kroger-owned stores including gas stations. To see a list of stores in more than 30 states, click here. Bashas' cards are honored at Bashas’ grocery stores, AJ's Fine Foods and Food City.

Under Bashas’ Shop & Give Program, if you simply link your Bashas’ Thank You Card to The Academy, Bashas’ will contribute to The Academy 1% of all of your purchases at Bashas’ through April 30. For more information, click here. Ask your family and friends to sign up for Shop & Give and pay for purchases at Bashas’ with a Community Support Card obtained through The Academy so that The Academy will receive a total of 7% of the purchases!!
Progress Report for Grocery Card Program
Several hundred Fry’s and Bashas’ gift cards are actively participating in the program. During May 2009 our total reloads were $38,825, which was our highest this season and only $130 below our all-time high. We had our best month ever for Bashas' ($5,673). The Fry's total of $33,150 was our 2nd highest this season and also our 2nd highest ever. THANK YOU to everyone who used a gift card in May. The program has generated more than $16,000 for The Academy since July 2008 and will continue to be an important source of revenue.
The cards do not expire. Continue to use the cards even if you do not have anyone involved with The Academy. Doing so will help the organization continue to be successful in serving its members and the community.
We will periodically post our progress on this page. This fundraising activity is a great way to support The Academy. If you need new cards or additional cards, order them at www.arizonaacademy.org under the Store tab, or in person during Booster meetings or other events sponsored by The Academy.
Let’s make 2009 a great year for the grocery card program!
